Into His Arms From the Carepages site

Posted 1 day ago

Riley woke this morning feeling good. She had a great morning at home with her mom and grandparents who are visiting. She encouraged Kirk to go to work. At approximately 1:30 this afternoon, Riley got up and moved toward Kelly with her arms raised. As Kelly lifted her up, Riley moved from Kelly's arms into His open arms.

We are grateful that Riley passed from this earth without pain and suffering.

At approximately 6:30 p.m. this evening, Riley's grandfather (Kelly's Dad) joined Riley in Heaven. Kelly was able to speak to her Dad and let him know that she loved him before he passed away. We know that Riley was there to lead her grandfather on His path.

Details for Riley's memorial service and funeral will be posted once they have been finalized.

We thank you for your continued prayers.

"Let not your hearts be troubled; believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And when I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am, you may be also. And you know the way where I am going." Thomas said to him, "Lord, we do not know where you are going; how can we know the way?" Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me." John 14: 1-6
