On June 29th, 2009, Crystal, Parker, and Haley Hewitt were in a severe car accident.  Crystal sustained major injuries to her back and almost didn't make it and Parker and Haley didn't survive the car crash.  They are both with our Heavenly Father.
Please continue praying for a full recovery for Crystal. And please pray for Crystal and Craig (along with the family and friends) broken hearts. 

We are so thankful for the love and support shown by so many friends and family.

If you would like to send a note of encouragement and prayer, please feel free to do so through our Caringbridge website.

Heaven gained a precious little girl

As I write this I can barely see the computer screen with the tears filling my eyes. I see a post from Madelynn's mom, Amanda that Madelynn took her last peaceful breath and joined Jesus. Please pray for this family just as hard as you have been the last few weeks. They need prayers. I can't imagine, but I know loss and we need Jesus. 

I wish we could have a glimpse into Heaven just for a minute, to see our loved one's, to see how they were greeted...I just can't help but wonder if Parker and Haley ran up right away to meet sweet Madelynn. I know they are going to be friends in heaven, that makes me smile!

Dear Heavenly Father, 
I know that Madelynn is safe and happy in heaven now with no more pain, no tears, only happiness forever with You. Thank you God for eternal life and for your promise that we will see our children again and be reunited as a family. I pray that you wrap your arms around her family. I pray that you give them strength when they feel that they can't get up. I pray that you hold their hand through this journey called life and give them the comfort and peace that only comes from You. I pray they feel your presence more than they ever have before. I pray that friends, family and people that have been praying and caring for the Nelson family will never forget, will never forget to bring them to you in their prayers. They need You, we all need You Lord. This is something that no one should go through, but we are trusting You. 
Love you.

As another mother who has also lost a child my heart breaks for them. Words cannot begin to express such sadness. My prayers go out for them.

Thank you for sharing this, Crystal. I have been praying for them and will continue to pray. I know you will be there for them as well.

Lord, please wrap your arms around the Nelson family and hold them close to you as they release their precious Madelynn to you and begin the journey through their grief. We know you are faithful and that you will never leave them or forsake them. But it is so hard to be separated by death from someone we love, particularly a little child. We trust you, knowing that you will give them the comfort and strength they need to face the future without her here. Please give them what they need for each moment ahead. In Jesus' name, Amen

In Jesus' Love,
