Judson's Legacy

Precious Gift


5 Years Ago Today…

We were given the most precious Christmas gift!



Judson remains the most precious Christmas gift imaginable!

Today we celebrate the gift of our little man, but also deeply grieve his absence.

Happy 5th Birthday, Buddy Boo!  We are always missing you!!

The stocking that held our precious Christmas
gift is now monogrammed and hanging
on our mantel.

  6. Dear Christina and Drake,
    Thinking of you on this most special day-Juds birthday! I envision him having a grand celebration, perhaps ripping around in a little red car, the sound of wind chimes adding to the merriment…
    May the Lord touch you in a special way today. Thanks for sharing the gift of Jud with so many.
    Much love,

    What a bittersweet day this must be for you all. I am so happy that you have shared your "gift" with so many. I know Judson has touched my life! What a precious boy! Praying for you guys! Today and always.

  8. Carla and I have been praying for you and thinking about you, Jesse and Jud today especially. We’ve been so touched by Judson and you, as well as how it impacted our Sarah helping out during Judson’s last months on Earth.

    We know today is very very hard. I prayed today that God would take a special moment with Jud and have the angels in heaven sing a special birthday song to him……and that Judson will enjoy a special dance of joy connecting with you today. When I think of my mom in heaven singing and dancing all the time, I get very happy–yet miss her. It’s then that I ask God to let her know for me how much she is loved and missed. I wish that for you and Jud today.

    Gary and Carla

  13. Dear Christina and Drake and Jessie
    My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of year. How very very difficult it must be to not have your most precious Christmas gift with you on this earth. The one hope is that Judson must have had a most tremendous birthday celebration in Heaven, since he, in a way, shares the birth of Jesus!! Love you all.

  14. there is no way anyone can ever totally tell you how much each of us feel the pain for the three if you. I turn to Judson’s story EVERY DAY, the pain is still there. I do know he was "fully loved by everyone who knew him".He will remain in my prayers every night and as I fall into deep sleep I see his beautiful eyes smiling at me. I thank you for sharing this story. It certainly serves as a wake-up call for all who have healthy babies,and how we should fall on our knees and Thank our Lord. I wish you all the best. I have never heard of more courageous parents than you two.My deepest Love. "Mama Nick"
