Today we interred the remains of pregnancy losses that occurred here at Fairview Red Wing over the past year. On a beautiful day in mid-May in a sheltered section of Oakwood Cemetery, Red Wing, they were laid to rest. These precious children could not be welcomed into the world by their parents here on earth, but rest assured that they are held in the arms of a loving and merciful God. Bless the parents who mourn, and bless these little ones:
Merciful God, you grant to children an abundant entrance into your kingdom. In your compassion, comfort those who mourn for these children, and all who mourn the death of children. Be gentle with them in their sorrow and reveal to them the wideness of your mercy. Deliver them from all despair and guilt. Grant us grace so that one day, united with these children and with all your children, we may stand in your presence in the fullness of joy...
