Memorial for Mamie Katherine Adams

When we got to the church we were so amazed by all the people who came to be there on such a sad day. The church was packed and people were even out in front that couldn't get in. I couldn't believe it when people told me that. Reverend Andrea's words were so powerful and touching. She spoke with such emotion.  Reverend Andrea was there the day that Mamie was born.  She blessed Mamie that day.  Reverend Andrea, Rev. Harriett and Rev. Lindsey visited us often during our 2 and 1/2 days in the hospital. Taylor and I along with our families felt comfort having them around. Here are Reverend Andrea's words from the Memorial Service. Memorial for Mamie Katherine Adams Grief is not a strong enough word. Loss does not begin to express the depth of the pain we feel as we mourn the death of Mamie Katherine Adams, daughter of Sarah and Taylor Adams. We are people of sorrow acquainted with grief gathered in this very room to hold one another up in love …knowing that there…

Graveside service for Mamie

The day was a total blur. We felt like we were in another world. How could it be that we were burying our baby today? We had the graveside service first. It was such a beautiful day. There were tons of people crowded around when we arrived. I couldn't even look up. I felt like I might collapse or get sick. Mamie's casket was so small.  Just 24 inches long...  As soon as we saw it Taylor and I burst into tears. How could this be real?  We had asked that poppies be placed on top of the casket since she was our little Poppy till we knew at 15 weeks that we were having a girl and gave her the name Mamie Katherine. The poppies were so beautiful!  Reverend Andrea and Reverend Harriet delivered a beautiful burial and memorial.  Our friend Dustin sang Glory Baby by Watermark and Reverend Lindsey participated in the memorial at the church as well.   She lost her 6 year old daughter many years ago, but it is still so fresh for her.   I don't remember exactly what was said a…

Mamie Katherine

MONDAY, JUNE 29, 2009 AT 5:35AM POSTED IN PERSONAL, PRAYERS Taylor and I wanted to share our little Mamie with everyone who has been praying for us and giving us support through this unbearable time. Today is the funeral and I have been awake for many hours now crying and wondering how in the world I am going to make it through today. Sitting outside on our deck has been so peaceful I truly feel the presence of God and I know we can make it through today because He will have His arms wrapped around us so tight. My dear friend Crystal Goss photographed the day Mamie came on June 25th. The pictures are just beautiful and something we will treasure forever. I put them to a song that will be sung by a friend at our church at both the burial and the service at 10. Thank you Crystal for doing this for us. I don’t know what I would do if we didn’t have these pictures. We love you all and please keep praying. -Sarah Slideshow Jennifer Whittington - Sarah. I am praying for you an…
