Sophie Kay Skiles came into this world on March 19, 2015 at 7:05pm and changed our lives forever.
Yesterday, January 4, 2018 at 2:11pm Sophie closed her eyes on a broken, cancer filled body and opened her eyes in the arms of Jesus. She was surrounded by friends and family that love her for 13 days then took her last breathe in her Mama and Daddy’s arms with worship music playing in the room.
She’s no longer stuck in a bed unable to walk, talk, or be her sassy self. She’s no longer struggling to breathe from a giant tumor. There’s no more owies or people messing with her. She is whole and perfect and probably talking Jesus’ ears off as she holds his hand and drags him all over the place asking ‘What’s that?!’
We take great comfort that she is no longer suffering but, We will miss part of our hearts as long as we are on this earth.
We will be having a very small immediate family service in a few days and a large memorial celebration will follow in a week or so once we’ve had time to catch our breath and plan something perfect for her. I will post details for that soon.
Thank you all for loving our girl. Please keep praying for us.
