Our dear family & friends,
At about 1:30am this morning, Naomi Grace Costanzo entered into the presence and joy of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She fought bravely and endured much in her 44 days of life here on earth, but now she is free from it all. No more tubes, no more IV’s, no more leads, no more blood tests, no more suffering, no more confusion, no more pain. She has entered into the eternal rest prepared for the people of God, a sinless state of perfection in which she will be blessed forever.
Our hearts are broken to be parted from our sweet daughter so soon, but we also rejoice with joy inexpressible that she has obtained that which our hearts also long for. She now sees God face to face and walks with Him, unhampered by a frail body or broken chromosomes. Nor do we mourn as those who have no hope. She is not an angel or a thousand winds; she is not an omnipresent part of the universe or an idol to be prayed to. She is a glorified human soul in the presence of the most high and most glorious God, a perfect reflection of His faithful love and infinite grace. And in that we rejoice.
We will send out information about her funeral/memorial service as soon as we can. In the meantime, please pray for our family as we grieve and make preparations.
Thank you all for walking through this journey with us. God be praised in all things.
“Who so happy as I am,
Even now the Shepherd’s lamb?
And when my short life is ended,
By His angel host attended,
He shall fold me to His breast,
There within His arms to rest.“
Grace be with you all who love our Lord Jesus with an undying love (Ephesians 6:24).
-Mike & Jen Costanzo
