At about 4:00 this afternoon, Lathem Thomas Oakley passed from the arms of his earthly family that loves him dearly, to the ever-loving arms of his Creator.
We count it as a privilege that God chose to bless us by adding Lathem to our family. Though he was only with us for five days, we have been changed by knowing and loving him. We are so grateful to all of you who have lifted us up in your prayers, today especially.
We have no arrangements right now, but we will post them here when we've finalized those plans.
Isaiah 43:1 - But now thus says the Lord, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: 'Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.'
Please continue to pray for the family.
