31084040_1530811106482921_r.jpegOur sweet little 1 1/2 year old nephew fell yesterday while playing and hit his head. This small fall caused his breathing and heart to stop. He was taken by ambulance to the hospital where they were able to help his breathing and heart. He was stabilized enough to be life flighted to Children’s hospital. He is in the PICU (pediatric ICU)  in critical condition and in a coma, fighting so hard for his life.

Unfortunately this sweet family does not have health insurance at this time and the medical bills are the last thing his amazing parents need to worry about right now.

I know everyone says the this about their families, but I can sincerly say with every part of me that they are the very best people you could ever meet. They would do anything and everything they could to help anyone they could.  No parent should have to go through this and we ask at this time to give back to a family who would truly be the first to give. 

Our little Royce is not only our nephew but truly our most very best friend in the whole world. We can’t even describe the pain we feel. It does not feel real. He is the most sweet, loving, funny, perfect little special soul. We love him beyond words. We know he is a little fighter and we believe in him!

Please if you can, even if it’s only a few dollars please help my sweet brother and sister in law. If you aren’t able to donate, more importantly we need prayers at this time for little Roycey. We know there is great power in prayer and Our Father in Heaven can truly perform miracles. 

Also please share this! Please please pray for our sweet little Royce!

From Lindsie, Royce’s Sweet Mom❤️

“I still can’t believe that our little Royce has left his earthly home with us. Our lives have been completely altered in an instant, but I still catch myself thinking about the places we can go and the things we can do with Royce as if he is still here with us. I guess that’s the great thing: he is still here with us, just not in the form we imagined or hoped for.

I can’t help but feel gratitude for the time we did get to spend with him and for all the things being a mother has taught me. It has been tragic, though, feeling like I’ve lost the title of mother being without a child to care for. These are just thoughts of course and things that go through my mind. It seems to be a bit of a battle some days. It’s going from feeling complete peace and acceptance to feeling like I’m on the verge of insanity, questioning if I can really do this.

Ultimately it is deciding if I am going to yield to the will of my Heavenly Father and let the Atonement of Jesus Christ carry and strengthen me or if I am going to succumb to the negative thoughts and become weakened by giving in to the power of the adversary. Clearly the choice is an easy one, but you know what they say, “it’s easier said than done.”

What a huge blessing it is to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and to have the knowledge of the Plan of Happiness that teaches us how to live so that we might live with our loved ones again and how we might find joy even in the hardest of times. Jesus Christ is at the center of it all, and we can turn to him for relief and comfort. I know this to be true as I have felt it in my own life. Luckily Royce is in his hands now, and that is what gives me the most peace and helps me to keep going.”

“First, please know that grief is the natural by-product of love. One cannot selflessly love another person and not grieve at his suffering or eventual death. The only way to avoid the grief would be to not experience the love; and it is love that gives life its richness and meaning. Hence, what a grieving parent can expect to receive from the Lord in response to earnest supplication may not necessarily be an elimination of grief so much as a sweet reassurance that, whatever his or her circumstances, one’s child is in the tender care of a loving Heavenly Father.” - Lance B. Wickman

From Jaiden, Roycey’s sweet Dad:

“We may pass through the fiery furnace; we may pass through deep waters; but we shall not be consumed nor overwhelmed. We shall emerge from all these trials and difficulties the better and the purer for them.”-President George Q. Cannon

The short time we spent with Royce was filled with so many special moments. When I think back, and remember our time with our son, I see Royce’s beautiful smile with his perfect eyes that only portrayed love. I see him dancing every time there is music playing and trying to sing the hymns during sacrament. I feel his soft skin and warm hugs that melted my heart. I hear his contagious laugh that filled a room. I remember the tender moments with our son when I would thank my God softly in my heart. It was so easy to be drawn to him and his spirit. One of the most special moments that comes to my mind often is last Sunday, during the Sacrament prayer, Royce bowed is head and clasped his little hands together and sat their in reverence until the prayer was completed. I thought to myself, What a special child he is.

We know that our Father in Heaven has sent the prayers of many, He has sent the comforter, and he has mended, for a time, our broken hearts. The knowledge and testimony we have that Jesus Christ rose from the grave and broke the chains of death has been our Balm of Gilead. Our hearts are filled with hope, not despair as we accept Gods will. We look forward to the day that we can see our little Roycey and behold him in his fullness of glory. We know that by the power of God our family is forever.

We cannot begin to thank all of those that have offered words of comfort, prayed and pleaded on our behalf and shedded a tear for our family. My heart has been touched forever by the amount of love and support my family has received.

From Royce’s Parents:

“The Lord takes many away, even in infancy, that they may escape the envy of man, and the sorrows and evils of this present world; they were too pure, too lovely, to live on earth; therefore, if rightly considered, instead of mourning we have reason to rejoice as they are delivered from evil, and we shall soon have them again.” - Joseph Smith

We are deeply saddened to let everyone know that we lost our little Roycey. He went into cardiac arrest twice before he was life flighted to the children’s hospital in LA which caused his brain to swell due to lack of oxygen. He was unresponsive the whole time he has been at the hospital and was declared brain dead after an MRI and a couple of tests.

We don’t know what the future holds for us, but we do know that as we trust in God’s plan for us we will be directed along the way. We already miss our little boy tremendously and can’t wait to see him again. We are so grateful for the knowledge that families can be together forever.

We are again so so grateful for everyone’s love and support and especially your prayers. We could really feel them strengthening us and helping us through this difficult time.

“Please do not despair when fervent prayers have been offered and priesthood blessings performed and your loved one makes no improvement or even passes from mortality. Take comfort in the knowledge that you did everything you could. Such faith, fasting, and blessing could not be in vain! That your child did not recover in spite of all that was done in his behalf can and should be the basis for peace and reassurance to all who love him! The Lord--who inspires the blessings and who hears every earnest prayer--called him home nonetheless. All the experiences of prayer, fasting, and faith may well have been more for our benefit than for his” - Lance B. Wickman

Royce was scheduled for his MRI at 8 am, then it was pushed to 11 am. They were getting him ready to transport him and his dad Jaiden and uncle Brady gave him a priesthood blessing. A few minutes after the blessing we were told they would need to postpone his MRI again due to no Dr’s being available to walk down with royce. Because he’s so unstable it is important to have a Dr with him during that procedure. They rescheduled it for this afternoon.

We feel that the Lords hand really is here guiding everything today and it was Him who postponed his procedure for whatever reason. We are praying hard and as hopeful and faithful as possible. Thank you so so so much for your continued prayers and for all the generosity that has been shown to this amazing little family. They are so incredibly humbled and grateful. Please keep praying for his mom and dad! Also most importantly that little Royce’s MRI looks good.
Thank you again!
-Sarah (Royce’s aunt)
