UPDATE, November 26, 6p: I just went to little Kaylie’s wake, the first wake of a baby I’ve ever attended. My cousin Sam said he was googling Kaylie’s name and found this post and your comments and was very touched. Thank you for your kind words and prayers.

My little 2nd cousin Kaylie Goff went home to Jesus yesteday morning. I was related to Kaylie 2 ways, through my first cousin Dian (Coffin) Goff and through my daughter-in-law Bernadine (Goff) Stanek.
Kayle had Down syndrome. She was 13 months old. She had been through major heart surgery in August. Children with Down syndrome often have heart problems.
Kaylie died unexpectedly in her Daddy’s arms. First, her Dad, my cousin Sam, posted this:

Hello Sam here… Please sing with me this morning…”Amazing Grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me! I once was lost but now I’M FOUND.” Keep singing or humming if you do not know the words. I have something to share with all who love Kaylie. At approximately 5:30 am this morning Kaylie went to be with the Lord. She went from my arms to the Lord’s arms. We just wonder if she put her little fingers into His mouth like she would do with me? Please pray for us in our loss. We love you all and will let you know about the arrangements as soon as we know. Love to all! Samuel Goff

And then this….

Hello Sam here… where do I begin? This has been the toughest day of our lives. We are so very tired and yet can not find it to go to sleep. Our little girl no longer needs us. God is feeding her right now. The funeral arangements are as follows: visitation will be on Mon. from 2-4pm and 6-8pm at the Boken funeral home on Kennedy ave. in Hammond. The funeral service will be at the First Baptist Church of Hammond on Tuesday morning at 10 am. Please continue to pray as we are so very weary. Love to all! Kaylie’s daddy

Please pray with me that Sam, April and surviving daughters will find comfort and rest in the Lord.
Thank you.
