So sorry for your families lost.


Mark & Sheila-
I am grieving and I didn't even know Ava. But she made a mark on me that will last forever. The entire Hunter family did.
Amber said it best, Ava was a sparkler. She had such depth for a 5 yr old. You could tell she knew Jesus loved her and she loved Jesus. That I credit to Josh & Lisa. Because of their love for Christ they lived it and passed it on to their children. It was so evident in Ava. She had confidence and fortitude in the battle she fought.
I can see her running, doing cart wheels and feeling whole again in heaven. I hope to meet her someday when I get there.
God bless you all on this day and the days to come.
Love in Christ-

Dear Pastor Beeson, I have been watching your blogs for updates about Ava. What a sweet little girl! I am so sorry for your loss. We can never comprehend what a treasure we have in the promise of heaven. As a nurse, I see people that die with no hope. That is grief!! Little Ava is experiencing the things we long for in our deepest soul. Thanks for sharing. So glad you are able to be with your family.. Know that your church family is ok...

What a blessing for all of us here to have you, Sheila, Amber, Ryan, Aaron, Tracy, Angela, John and Lydia here with us, Mark for Ava's memorial service. Ava loved you and your family. And she loved the online glimpses of Granger Church -- especially the July video featuring Branden, playing all parts in The Blind Side. Ava watched that sketch so much that she could say every word right along with him!
A special thank you to everyone of your blogosphere friends who has prayed for Ava over the last 10 weeks. We all were blessed by those prayers.
Safe travels super brother. You're wonderful.

This service to celebrate Ava's life may have been the most meaningful memorial I've ever experienced - albeit online. Isaac led and preached a phenomenal service. Still praying for you, Sheila and your family. Trusting God for your safe travel and restoration.
