Noah Biorkman Update

I would like to thank all of you who added a Christmas Card for Noah... The concerted effort brought  a million cards to Noah's family within a short amount of time.


Sadly, not long after the outpouring of  generosity of the readers on the World Wide Web, little Noah Biorkman was taken to heaven. God took his child to be with him on November 23,2009.


Now that Noah is gone, his parents have requested bloggers and Facebook posters to ask that the cards and gifts stop. They appreciated the effort to make his requesr a reality .


If you would still like to honor Noah, his mother has asked  that you direct your memorials to the hospital and charity that worked to care for Noah's medical and social needs in his days as a patient.

Thank you so much for the update. I am relieved that Noah is fine now and in the hands of his maker. Happy also that so many of us in blogger land took the time to address Noah's wishes.

Mel - Yes,from my understanding Noah will not be in pain anymore. He can now be unfettered from the worries of this world. There isn't any sickness or sorrow in the presence of the LORD.

It does show positively what the World Wide Web outreach can do... ;)
