Well Marriah, yesterday was your birthday and I just wanted you to know that it didn't go by without thoughts of you. It was a hard day for your dad and Cheri, just like all the other days are pretty much hard days for your dad. One day at a time.
I just wanted to tell you Happy Birthday and hope you know how much you're missed.

Marriah's story is both poignant, sad, and beautiful. I hope she will always be remembered. You are in my thoughts and prayers. I mean that.

Jay, how devastating it must be for you first losing Gideon and now your precious daughter Marriah. The hope you have of seeing them again can be realized for God has promised that soon he will resurrect or bring back to life those who have died. 1Corinthians say “For just as in Adam all are dying, so also in the Christ all will be made alive.” And we have this reassurance at John5:28,29 “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life..” It is my hope that, as you reflect on these thoughts, you find a measure of peace to cope for “[God] is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.”

Jay I can not express the words that my heart is feeling at this moment after reading about your daughter and Gideon, a lot for a man to deal with. A lot for anyone to deal with, that is why I can not seem to find words of comfort, who other than God himself can comfort this kind of pain....NO ONE, so BELIEVE AND PUT YOUR TRUST IN HIM, HE WILL SEE YOU THOUGH THIS. GOD BLESS YOU JAY...you will be in my prays as well.

Marriah, I met you when you were pregnant with Gideon. You had that infectious smile that everyone talks about and a very warm spirit about you. One chance meeting and you've touched my life, how many people can do that? My tears fell everytime I saw pictures of your adorable Gideon posted on fb after he passed away. My tears fall and my heart breaks for those you loved the most that you left behind, as I know you are happy to be with your son again, although I grieve for two lives cut way too short from this life. Clearly you lived life to it's fullest, probably knowing somewhere inside that life is a gift to be cherished! All my love to you, Gideon, Michelle and your beautiful mom.

To the family of Marriah,
I am so sorry to see Marriah's memorial site added here on VM. I have read all the pages that you have made for her here. Her depression after Gideon died, must have consumed her. You now feel the same depression after the loss of Marriah. I know it too well.
I had a special bond with my only child, my son, Crawford, as Marriah had with her father. To honor my son; I also made a website here for him. I didn't know at the time that I made it, how much it helped me. I feel a closeness to him as I talk to him and about him throughout his site. I, also, have met so many other parents that have lost their children, too. After 4 1/2 years; I still communicate with them.
Crawford, contacted an awful disease just 2 weeks before graduating high school. This disease kills if it isn't identified quickly.......it wasn't, and it killed him within 4 days. To read about this disease and to view his memorial site that I have made for him; just click on the thumbnail pic of him that I leave here.
I didn't know hardly anything about computers until I started to make Crawford's site. I spent the 1st two years teaching myself how to read and write HTML code that makes up pics, backgrounds and animations for websites. I still add, delete and change all of them on a weekly basis to keep his site fresh. I have helped and "detailed" a lot of websites here for parents. They have learned how to sooth their guilt (we all have it as parents), and to keep their minds active as they beautify their child's website. Even though their minds are actively on their child; they are sharing their memories with others here. Keeping their child's memory alive among us all. I hope to read more about Marriah's life here when I return.
I grieve with you for your loss of Marriah as only another father that has also lost a child.......can.
Helping to keep Marriah's memory alive.......
With only memories left of our children.......

The tide recedes but leaves behind bright seashells on the sand. The sun goes down, but gentle warmth still lingers on the land. The music stops, and yet it echoes on in sweet refrains..... For every joy that passes, something beautiful remains.
