April 3rd, 2015 was my very first blog featuring my amazing cousin, his beautiful wife, and their 7 month old baby girl. You could see how incredibly happy Wesley and Jessica were. Their family was complete, and their daughter brought so much joy to their lives.
Wesley was taken from us far too soon. He passed away just 3 weeks later on April 28th, 2015 at the age of 25 in a terrible accident that never should have happened. Wesley was a kind, loving, and amazing man. He loved his wife with all of his heart, and he loved his baby girl more than anything in this world. This is the most heartbreaking thing I have ever seen my family go through. The unexpected and sudden loss of Wesley can never be explained or made right. It will leave a hole in everyone's heart, and we will always miss him and his crazy, fun personality.
I ask that you pray for his wife, Jessica. Pray that God will give her the peace that passes all understanding. Pray for her as she struggles to understand why. Pray as she picks up the pieces that she will keep her eyes on Christ, and rest in His promise that he will never leave her or forsake her. Pray as she raises their daughter. Pray for her broken heart.
Sweet Jessica, words cannot even begin to tell you how incredibly sorry and heartbroken I am for you and Eden. You have become as close as a sister to me, and my heart is shattered for the pain that you are going through. I have been blessed to watch you become an incredible wife and then a mother. I cannot even begin to explain how much I care about you and Eden. You are the strongest Christian that I know. You have shown just how strong you are through all of this.
I promise to always look out for you and Eden in the days, months, and years to come. You are my sister, and one of my dearest friends. I am praying for your heart, and that you will cling even harder to your heavenly Father through this nightmare. God has not brought you this far to forsake you. He said that He will never leave you or forsake you. He is here.
Wesley, I love you. I didn't tell you enough. I didn't hug you enough. I didn't spend enough time with you. I miss you, and I will honor your memory by thinking of you often. I will tell Eden about you, and make sure she knows just how much her daddy cherished her. I love you.
Lord, ease the pain of Jessica and our family. Touch everyone with the peace that passes our understanding. Hold everyone in Your loving arms, and ease the pain. Thank You for the time we had with Wesley, and thank You for Your promise to bring us through.
