Goodbye Coleman...

At 10:45 last night, one of my favorite little men on the planet went to join his Cancer friends helping Jesus hold the babies. COLEMAN SCOTT LARSON was 5 but he touched more lives with his faith than most of us ever will in our lifetime. He is a true hero.
I have no doubt he is in Heaven making all the kids giggle, for Heaven's sake!
(this is my favorite Larson episode!) The Larson Team could really use your prayers! Caden is having a rough time. Coleman's celebration is on Saturday. Scott and Peggy are asking that those who want to send their love do so not in flowers but in donations to: The Hospice House of Fort Dodge, Iowa The Ronald McDonald House of Iowa City or curesearch.org Dear Heavenly Father, We can't pretend to know WHY. We can't fathom the pain the Larson's are feeling. But we know the plans you have for Coleman are far more amazing than what we can see here on earth. Our faith lies in trusting that you are the Almighty decision maker. Our faith lies in knowing these children who battle cancer do not battle in vain. Our faith lies in knowing here is a bigger picture, one we can't see. Lord, I ask that you cover the Larson family in a peace that surpasses all understanding. I pray that Caden holds onto the bond he has with Coleman and I pray he can feel him everywhere. And I pray for a cure for this beast we have come to know all too well. Bless the babies who still fight and give our hugs to those who have joined you in the clouds. In your Holy name, Amen

Thank you for the update. I still can't cry. I know the tears will come soon. Praying so hard for the Larsons.
Your prayer is perfect.

So very sad. I cried last night when I read Peggy's post. I know of another sweet boy (who was at CHOP) who earned his wings yesterday. Too too many babies taken from their mama's loving arms. Thank you for the prayer.

Another Heartbreaker....so sad. Thank you for putting into words to trust that God has a plan even though we don't understand.

My friend's daughter has relapsed with Ewing's Sarcoma. We found out just before Christmas. There is a link on my blog to sign a petition to raise awareness and funding to childhood cancer research. It is sponsored by Peaple Against Childhood Cancer and Curesearch. Please take a moment to sign it. Their goal is 1,000,000 signatures.

My heart is breaking! For a little boy, who I've never met, to touch my lives in such a way (and so many others) is a true testament to God. Fly high sweet angel Coleman, fly high!

What a beautiful prayer Michelle!

I just can't get over it. Coleman was so special.
May God bless the Larsons and keep them close.

Thank you for the sweet post.

Words are failing me too, after reading that. Tears are pouring down my cheeks as I type this. There are no words that will give Team Larson anymore comfort than they have already gotten. Nothing wil bring Coleman back, but rest assured he is in Heaven, and is being as sweet there as he was on Earth.

My thoughts are with poor little Caden and his parents.

Jenn B said...

Your prayer is beautiful and I can't not stop the tears and my daughter just asked why? My words are failing and my heart is aching but my faith tells me all is well. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. They will treasure that video for a lifetime!

Beautiful prayer, Michelle! I know that God is holding the family close to him right now. I will also add extra prayers for Caden.

Rachel said...

Thank you for galvanizing people to pray and support the Larson's time and again.

My heart was breaking Christmas morning... the first thing we did is join together as a family and just tearfully pray for Colemand and Caden and their family.

I don't understand it, but God now has this sweet brave little boy next to Him... in no more pain or things to worry about.

We love you C-Man!

I've been following Coleman's story also, and I just can't stop crying. He had such a beautiful soul. He is missed SO much!

Deb said...

My favorite Team Larson is the Bunny Foo Foo (Reunited episode)... that's only if I could have one favorite cuz... all of dem's my favorites... God, I love that family!

Kristi said...

God Bless Coleman, Caden and the whole Larson family and all of the people who loved him. I didn't know him but his story just touched my heart in more ways that you can imagine.

Wendy said...

Michelle, thanks for the beautiful prayer. Your words bless the Lord, the Larsons and all of us who count ourselves as members of Team Larson!

What a beautiful tribute for little Coleman. Thank you Michelle for doing this for the Larsons. They have been such a FAITH foundation for so many, and have brought so many closer to the LORD by sharing their journey. May God continue to bless them and keep watch over Caden. I will continue to pray for them as I am part of TEAM LARSON and WE NEVA DIV UP! :-)
