Ivan, your little sister Svea will be 1 year old on Feb.8. I know you are proud of her and big brother Egil. He loves and
takes care of her just like he did you. Thank you for watching over all of us. Mama and Papa are helping you help children to have a safer life. We miss you so much and will love you forever

Sweet Ivan, I know you are so proud of your little sister and big brother. We miss and love you everyday.

Merry Christmas, Ivan
Helpless and hungry,
Lowly,afraid,wrapped in the chill of midwinter;
Comes now among us, born into poverty's embrace,
New life for the world.
Who is this who
lives with the lowly,
sharing their sorrows,
knowing their hunger?
This is Christ, revealed to the world
In the eyes of a child,
A child of the poor.
Merry Christmas, Ivan
Your loving Farmor

A year has passed since we held you in our arms, but you are close to us in our heart. Today, we went to the beach and wrote your name in the sand. Tomorrow, we will look to see you in others, that we help in your name. Love always, Farfar

Vilken otroligt fin hemsida ni har gjort till er underbara son/lillebror.
Läser,tittar på bilder och tårarna rinner samtidigt som jag beundrar er fina familj!
Känner med er och förstår att sorgen är enorm....
Önskar att det fanns något jag kunde skriva som fick sorgen att lindra,tänker på er!

Tittar fortfarande ofta in på den fina minnes sidan. Nu är det snart julen o Ivan fick tyvärr inte vara med om sin första jul, känns så ORÄTTVIST när det är barnens högtid. Hoppas att Ivan även får uppleva fina saker där han är. Jag hoppas o tror att du Ivan håller ett vakande öga över din kära familj; Korey, Henrietta o Egil. Kramar till er.....

Dear Korey, Henrietta and Egil,

We are so deeply sorry for your loss. No words can describe how tragic it is and how profoundly sad we are. Now that we have a child of our own, we can in some way understand how indescribably difficult it must have been for you. Our warmest and kindest thoughts and prayers are with you.
Take a good care of each other - you are such a beautiful family.

Dear Henrietta, Korey and Egil,

I think about you all the time, and I am so so sorry for your loss.

A clairvoyant told me some years ago that my angel sister was in another dimension taking care of children who died in the tsunami, so I'm hoping that she is looking after Ivan as well now.

Take care of yourselves and remember all the good things.

Kramar,
/Sara

Korey, Henrietta, and Egil,

I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. I cannot begin to imagine the pain you must feel. I pray for you as you walk through this difficult time. You are amazing people and even though I never got to meet Ivan-outside of the belly- I'm sure he was an amazing little fellow.

Peace and Love,
Lauren

Psalm 9:9- Let God be your refuge when you are hurting. He knows exactly how you feel because he sacrificed His Son.
Niina wrote at November 28, 2010:
It was good to meet with you, and to be with you on Ivans funeral. And it was hard to leave you with your sadness, wish there was more I could do to help you bear your burden. I think of you all the time and hope time will heal some of the pieces of our broken hearts. Love / Niina
Michael & Donna wrote at November 27, 2010:
I wish there were words to say to you to make you feel better, but there are none. You must lean on each other and lean on God. Take each day one hour at a time. Your 4 year old son will need so much love and comfort, as he can't understand you sorrow or his baby brother being gone. We are praying daily for all of you.
Fam Aheinen wrote at November 26, 2010:
Sweet child whom we never really got to know,
It’s hard for us to let you go.
We waited and we wanted you.
We had so many dreams for you.
We think of smiles we'll never see.
We think of events that will never be.
There will be no first steps and no first teeth.
There is only a void and our own grief.
We planned to take you to places far and near.
We yearned to keep you safe and free from fear.
We hoped to show you much of your new world.
We wanted to teach you as your life unfurled.
It’s hard to understand why you, our baby, died.
We feel so numb right now, many tears we’ve cried.
We have so many questions and no answers seem to come.
We tried so hard to save you; nothing could be done.
God, we stand before you broken-hearted
and ask you to heal these lives that must be parted
from this little one we can no longer hold,
who will always be a part of us, even when we're old.)
God, take this child in your loving arms.
No more can he suffer any harm.
Bless him always and bless us too.
Be with us and help us to make it through.

Finns inga ord,
men vi vill ge er denna vers:

När en blomma bryts av i sin vakraste blom
Då blir marken så trist och så fruktansvärt tom
Men kanske ändå att det någonstans finns en äng och en undangömd skreva
Dit blommor som brutits för tidigt
Får komma och fortsätta växa och dofta och leva.

Vi tänker på er, kramar från Ika och Patte

Vilken fin minnesstund för Ivan. Musiken var väl vald. Det går bara inte att förstå varför en liten kille måste ryckas bort från dem som älskar honom. Det gör ont att försöka förstå meningen med att ett litet älskat barn rycks bort, det gör ont att veta er stora sorg ...., naturligtvis livet går vidare med de ljusa minnerna kvar. Men varför, varför ..... - inga svar finns. Ni finns i våra tankar och vi finns för er.

"Gråt ej vid min grav

Jag finns i solens spegelblank på havet
Jag finns i vindens lek över sädesfälten
Jag finns även i höstens stilla regn och i vintergatans stjärnahär.

Och när du en tidig morgon väcks av fåglar kan det vara min röst du hör.

Gråt inte vi träffas snart igen..."

Det är så ofattbart.
Finns inga ord, så därför lånade jag några...

All styrka och kärlek till er.

Ni finns i våra tankar varje dag. Vi försöker förstå och det gör så ont att veta att Ivan inte längre är hos er. Stora tårar rullar ner för våra kinder när vi bläddrar i albumen om och om igen... han är så fin!! Varför just han!?

Vi sänder er styrka att klara av det tunga ni har framför er imorgon och vi är så ledsna för att vi inte kan vara där med er och ta farväl.
Imorgon tänder vi ett ljus för Ivan och vi hoppas att han ser det från sin himmel.

Vila i frid Ivan.

Karen Sevi wrote at November 24, 2010:
We will be in prayer for all of you as you make this final journey in Ivan's name. Remember this: the grief is ours to bear. Ivan is happy! I know this! He is surrounded, protected, and emmersed in so much love, in a place that we can only see with our hearts. Lonely? Afraid? I think not! I do not doubt for one minute that He is with all those we ever loved...and the countless souls who lived previously.....We think of Ivan as gone, but He isn't really gone.There is so much (going on around us) that we can't see....that we can only accept with our hearts.This is what we call "Faith, the substance of things hoped for, but not yet seen." Hebrews 11 How do I know this? I know that I know that I know! After all, as God promised (me) in psalm 113, he made me,Karen Sevi, "the barren woman, a joyful mother of children!" Why me? I've asked myself that question a million times. Well, for one, He wanted me to testify to you about the wonderous things he's done for me......to give you comfort and hope that He will also do the same for you. Soon, he will wipe away your tears and heal your hearts. Like Ivan, He is with you always. For a reason, not yet revealed, Ivan has gone to sit (on the throne) with God; warm, loved and protected...surrounded by all the saints,,,waiting patiently for us to join him when God also invites us in.... "I know that you do not realize what is going on right now, but later you will understand." John 13:7 "I know that you grieve. I know that you want to know why. But for now, you must be content to look around you; to see the love, immerse yourself in the Word, and pray for those around you... and, when the time is come, I will reveal all to you." You ask, "Why can I not come, too?" "Where I am, you cannot follow right now, but I promise you that you will follow later." John 13:36 Until then, I will hold you in the palm of my hand."
Korey, have you heard Eric Clapton's Tears in Heaven? He wrote it after his 4 yr. old son Connor died in a fall some years ago. You might wish to play it at the funeral. Physically, I won't be with you on Thanksgiving, but please know that I will be there in my spirit. Is there a possibility that you can video-tape the funeral, so that we may join you when we can? Please reach out to me when you need someone...Love, Aunt Karen

Dear Momma,Papa & Egil.

So much has changed in the last three weeks. Quietly in the night, while sleeping within the folds of your warm and loving arms, I slipped away.I know that you are grieved over me, but I want you to know that when I awoke the next morning, I was soaring through the heavens on the wings of angels; beyond the sun, beyond the moon, to the very place where rainbows end.
There is no darknesss where my spirit flew, no night, only love and perfect peace...I whirled in wonder & untrammeled joy to this place where I knew that I myself was love; always, always, always love.Tearing open the doors of time,& through the windows of my soul's new sight, I saw beyond the bounds of time & space. I was all things that I had loved on earth...& I can't recall anything that I loved more than you.I will never be very far away and I will come to you, I promise, in your dreams. Be happy! When you find yourself being sad, just think of all the rainbows that I will ride...

Thank you for loving me!
Ivan

Korey and Henrietta,
We are praying for you each and every day, for peace that only God can give. There are so many promises He makes us, and one of the most beautiful is from Jeremiah 29:11 "for I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a future and a hope." we love you and are here for you both always.

när jag ser på er lilla kille känner jag att alla mina problem är lyxproblem. jag tycker ni är starka i ert sorgearbete och den här bloggen är väldigt vacker. på avstånd kan jag känna sorg över att mitt barn har en vän mindre, att ett syskon saknar sin lillebror och att två föräldars kärlek på jorden blev så kortvarig. att den sedan ändå är evig är kanske ett ljus i alla tankar. kram till er, Henrietta , Korey och Egil.

Först väntade vi nästan hela sommaren,

Sedan blev det tyst och mörkt då ni flyttade.
Och så fick vi höra om det hemska som hänt….

Hur tyst måste inte ni tycka att det är nu….?

Vi tänker på er varje gång vi ser era hus, d.v.s. nästan jämt.

Four short months ago, your farmor and farfar traveled to Norbotten in anticipation of your coming into this world. For ten days, we wondered what you would be like. We were pleased and held you for two weeks with a promise that we would return. For 102 days you gave us enough happiness to last 100 lifetimes. We will continue to see you in all that is good and will miss you in our hearts.

Vilken fin sida ni gjort för Ivan. Tittar ofta in på sidan o på de bilder o videos ni lagt in. Ivan är så fin o ser så glad ut på filmerna. Det är svårt att finna ord för det man vill skriva till er o Ivan, det finns inga ord som kan ersätta det som hänt. En fin sida att gå in o minnas Ivan på. Tror absolut att Ivan följer allt ni gör för honom o Egil o er själva. Ivan har verkligen sina föräldrar o storebror att vara stolt över. Ivan jag tittar in på din sida ibland för att jag vill se o minnas dig. Din familj håller jag varmt o hjärtat, dom träffar jag då o då, o vill alltid finnas till hands för dom. Kraaam

Don't think of him
as gone away-
his journey has just begun
life holds so many facets-
this earth is only one...



Just think of him as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.


Think how he must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away


And think of him as living
in the hearts of those he touched...
for nothing loved is ever lost-
and he was loved so much.

Sweet baby Ivan,
The day before you were born there was a lightening storm. You were still in Mama's belly. She was sitting near the window and we saw fire flash on her teacup!
You surprised us and arrived early. Farfar and I were so happy because that meant we would have more time with you. Even though it was a short time before we had to leave for Texas, you filled our hearts with love and your quiet calm spirit.
I know you are watching over us with all the other saints in heaven. Ivan, you will forever be a peaceful heart.
Your loving Grandmother,
Donna
Mama wrote at November 16, 2010:
We do not understand why our angel was called back before he had grown,
and must be satisfied that all that is left unknown will remain unknown.
His life taught us the day can be full of joy, his death that the minutes are empty with sorrow.

We promise to train our feet to go on with the joy, a joy that we once had known.
We promise, with our hands, to complete all the good works that were left undone.
Papa wrote at November 16, 2010:
Ivan,

Know that-

this world can not take you away from us
and that you are still in our warm embrace.

you put hearts in your brother's eyes
and a shine in your mother's.

your papa will make you proud
and our love for you has no end.
