Callie Grace Hart

Callie Grace Hart, born at 9:17 a.m. on June 29, 2007, 2 lbs 13 ounces. That is all we ever knew about Callie Grace. She was in her mommy's womb for 33 weeks, then entered this world without a breath and into the arms of Jesus. We don't understand the whys, but we have the assurance that she is with Jesus. I recently read the book, Heaven is a Real Place by Todd Burpo.  His son has retold the story of what happened to him during surgery when he was in Heaven for a brief time.  His details of heaven, told from his 4-year-old perspective, create for those of us who have lost loved ones a wonderful picture of Jesus and the joys of heaven.  Such comfort and confirmation of what we have been promised by God.  Happy Heavenly Birthday, sweet little Callie.  Your Mimi and Poppy look forward to a real celebration some day with you.  You are forever in our hearts and lives - never to be forgotten.
