His parents would like to extend a heart-felt Thank You to the multitude of friends and family who have reached out to them in this difficult time. Thatcher may have never had an opportunity to meet any of us in this world, but for such a tiny little boy, his impact on the ones around us and the joy he has already brought to us is immeasurable. We would also like to thank everyone for the prayers, calls, messages, emails, and overwhelming display of the love of Jesus that has been shown to us over the last several days. Our hearts are heavy and broken for the loss we have endured, but our faith is in our Lord Jesus Christ who has conquered death and the grave and we know without a shadow of a doubt that we will, one day, be reunited with our precious baby boy.
The family would also like to thank the Doctors and Nurses at St. Thomas Rutherford Hospital 3rd Floor Labor and Delivery, for their kindness and loving care that was given to us.
Memorial contributions may be made in the form of Gideon Bibles, or to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
