  • Words of Wisdom

    I Can Only Imagine~Mercy Me

    "Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you." ~Jeremiah 29:12

    "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." ~Jeremiah 29:11

    None of us is wise enough to make it on our own. We need the help, the wisdom, the guidance of the Almighty... There is no substitute for prayer. There is no greater resource.

My thoughts and prayers continue to be with all of you.


You're in my heart and thoughts.

Marge Johnston

It's okay. The morphine will help Baylee rest, don't second guess yourself on this one. Only God knows when Baylee's work on earth is done. Morphine or no morphine will not alter the appointed time. {{{Sonda}}} Carrying you in my heart daily~
Love you,

Laurie Devine

Hugs and continued prayers. <3


More thoughts and prayers for you and Duane and Baylee. Keep her as comfortable as possible. God is with you in this journey and will not mislead you.


You are such an amazing mother!!!
Praying for you guys to have comfort.


You are doing such an amazing job!! Thank you so much for taking the time to update us, I so look foward to your day & night with Baylee. You are such a great mom & YOU know best what Baylee needs!! Hugs to you all!


I know that sick feeling of giving the first dose. Please know that you are doing everything in your power to do what is best for Baylee.
When it her time to meet Jesus it wont be becasue of anything you did or didn't do the morphine will relax and the small amount that you are going to give her might not do too much.
I think and pray for you daily. Keep in your thoughts that you will never be with out her she is always going to be with you. When the time comes she will not be alone I feel it in my heart that Maggie is waiting to run and play two beautiful butterflies.


Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

I hope this verse brings you some comfort as it did for me.


I check daily sweetie. I miss you three and pray for you, Duane & Baylee constantly. Luv ya girl! B


Thinking of you in continued prayer. Hugs Lisa L.

Nicole Maki

Oh, Sonda. You are never far from my thoughts and prayers.

Do whatever you need to to help Baylee be comfortable and rest. She has more than shown that God won't gather her to Him until He's ready. Keeping her comfortable is what mothers do.

Wish I could give you hugs in person.
We're all praying for you.

Molly Joly

Sending continued prayers, Sonda. Your strength and your faith is an inspiration to us all.


Oh Sonda, I'm sorry this is so hard! You are always in my thoughts. Maybe Baylee just isn't ready to leave you yet. God will ask for her when He is ready. Prayer for you, Baylee, Duane and your family.


I am praying for all of you. I can't even imagine what you are going through. It sounds like you are doing all of the right things to make what time she has as good as it can be. No doubt she feels very very loved.

Sonda-- I think of you and Baylee throughout my day. Sometimes I just wonder what you are doing at that moment. Each time of think of you both, I send a pray to God. I know He is walking with you on this journey and in His loving arms all will be well!!

Lisa Risser

Thinking of you and Baylee and continuing our daily prayers for your family. I feel your love for Baylee each time I read your updates and there is no doubt in my mind that Baylee knows how very much she is loved here on this earth!

Jennifer Nenni

Bless you for putting Baylee's comfort first and foremost. Starting morphine is a difficult decision. God will be there for Baylee when it is time, and anything to keep her comfortable is a loving act. Take Care.


May God give Baylee peace, comfort and rest. You are doing the right thing, Sonda. You are a wonderful Mom. What a wonderful gift you have in Tracy, too.

Janine R.

Thinking about you.... Hugs, prayers and ..love.




Just wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you and Duane and sweet Baylee.

My heart breaks for what you are going through.

Every time I read about Tracy, the hospice nurse, I am reminded that there are angels amongst us here on Earth. What a gift the universe gave Sonda & Duane in sharing Tracy with them.

Soar with the angels, Baylee....I can imagine you dancing and singing and continuing to shower your beautiful mama with angel kisses...
