Maddox's Celebration Video

Below is the video that was shown at Maddox's celebration service. We are so happy to share it with you as it captures, in 2 short minutes, the love and emotion we felt as we spent those hours with him in our arms. We hope you enjoy it... it is something that I will always treasure. It provides me with something that I can hold on to until I can once again hold tightly on to him.



Thank you to Gayle, Brian and the Second Baptist Youth Ministry team for putting this together for us. You are so wonderful!

“Therefore, I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.”- Mark 11:24

What a beautiful video!! Maddox was so cute!! Thank you so much for sharing him with us, and for allowing all of us to be such an intimate part of your life and what you are going through. My best friend lost her daughter to T-18 in November. She was here for 29 precious days, and it doesn't matter how long or short the time, they all had a very special plan for us, and Maddox was just as special! God Bless You and your family.

I hardly have words for that...absolutely beautiful.

Thank you so much for sharing your journey with me. I have a feeling that your beautiful baby boy has touched and changed lives in his few moments here on earth in a way that many of us never will.

You have encouraged and inspired me. I long for faith like yours. Your story has touched me and made me realize that my walk with the Lord is not what it should be. I want more. Thank you and God bless.

This is a beautiful and amazing video, bring me to tears. Maddox is just beautiful and perfect. Thank you from the center of my heart for allowing me to be one of the many who walked this blessed journey with you. What an honor it has been and still is to lift you up to the one who holds Maddox so tenderly now. May He continue to hold your hurting hearts in His hands with Maddox. Prayers for you will continue daily in my home. I love Maddox and the things he taught me.

Love and Hugs, Laurie in Ca.

What a beautiful child; what a beautiful family; what a beautiful testimony of honor to our Lord.

What you have shared is so precious and sacred.

May your reward for your faithfulness bless your spirits and strengthen you to continue to live for Him. The intimacy with which He has touched your lives has changed you forever.

Thank you for sharing your journey of faith. Those of us who have followed you have been changed as well, by one little 3 lb. 2 oz. boy and the faithful man and woman who loved him.

God bless you.

That video was awesome and will surely serve as a special reminder of Maddox. I thought at the end when you told Deacon that Maddox was in Heaven was beautiful, especially since you were saying it with a smile. Praying still for your family. Thanks for sharing that video with everyone.

Kenzie,

There are just no words. That was beautiful, thank you so much for sharing. I have so much I want to say, but I am having a terribly emotional day and I feel like I am just going to screw it all up if I try to put the words from my heart onto the 'paper', so....just know I am thinking of you and praying so hard for you right now.

Sweet Baby Maddox. You are so precious.

What beautiful pictures and video, and what lovely memories of Maddox. We lost our first son, Will, after just 15 minutes, but the pictures of the time we spent with him are so precious - as yours will be for you. Still thinking of you, and praying for you often. X

Kenzie...I have been following your blog since you started and I have to tell you....your faith is so unbelievable to me! I thought I had faith, and I do, but it doesn't come close to yours. Your blog has helped me in more ways than one.

Thank you so much for sharing this time with us, good and bad.

I will definitely add you to my prayers.

Kenzie,

Just wanted you to know that I am thinking of you right now, and continuing to pray for you and your 'boys' everyday.

Do you know just how awesome you are? (I mean that in like, the least prideful, best worldly sense you can think of, of course) :-)

Love and prayers,
Devin

That was absolutely beautiful!

This video is absolutely wonderful. I cried as I watched it, mostly to see how peaceful you all were. I lost my first daughter, Sophie, unexpectedly in 2005. It is amazing to see how, knowing your time here with Maddox would be brief, you paid such beatiful tribute to his life. I didn't get that chance, but if I had, I couldn't have thought of a more beautiful way. My thoughts are with you and your boys.

What a lovely video. Maddox is beautiful.
