Keep my heart from all terror and assist me,
In darkness I move on, step by step,
Let me feel Thy hand,
And may I also hear Thy voice."

In Loving Memory of Josephine Gay

It's been a year since your darling Joey went away
Since you've seen her it seems like forever and a day.

With your heart aching it seems it will never heal
It seems like the loneliness you will forever feel.

So celebrate the life of your precious 'Boo'
Even though the years with her were few.

Think of her riding her bike to meet Jesus as He takes her hand
To show her her very own lemonade stand.

Imagine the angels gathering round to enjoy a cup
As her Sandy Hook friends come running up.

Think of her loving heart and beautiful smile
Remembering God gave you this beautiful child.

Think of her playful spirit and joy of giving
This little girl who made life worth living.

Think of her when you look at the night sky
As the brightest star winks, this is her way of saying hi!

And don't be surprised if you look at the rainbow
And it has about it a purple glow.

Now as you continue to celebrate the life of your precious little girl
The one who put her daddy's heart in a whirl.

Know that she's happy and will watch over you from above
Know that through Jesus she feels your warmth and love.

So bow your head in the most earnest prayer and say
"Thank you dear God, 'ere the time be so short, for sending her my way."

Today beautiful Josephine turns eight. This year she celebrates in heaven with her friends that went along with her on that tragic day almost a year ago. I can imagine she'll be surrounded with all things purple. May this holiday season bring peace to her family. So many, many people pray for all that held hands as they went up to Heaven together. So many angels are watching over those left here but we'll all be together again some day. Happy Birthday Josephine.

And if I go, while you are still here...
Know that I still live on,
Vibrating to a different measure,
Behind a thin veil that you cannot see through.
You will not see me, so you must have faith.
I will wait there for the time when we can soar together again, both aware of each other.
Until then, live your life to the fullest.
And when you need me, just whisper my name in your heart,
...I will be there.

(Matthew 19:13-15) 13?Then young children were brought to him, for him to put his hands upon them and offer prayer; but the disciples reprimanded them. 14?Jesus, however, said: “Let the young children alone, and stop hindering them from coming to me, for the kingdom of the heavens belongs to suchlike ones.” 15?And he put his hands upon them and went from there.

Josephine you are my 15th out of 26 Acts of Kindness. I supported a Kiva (kiva.org) loan to a woman named Yelica in Bolivia. She runs a small bakery and contends with competition from a large bakery. It is right that we should support the small ones, don't you think? Love your smile in all the photos. I am forwarding the love from that smile as far a Bolivia. RIP Josephine.

We have formed a charitable fund in Joey's name with the Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism. The money will go to help families with autistic kids for needed treatment that insurance won't cover, or is otherwise unaffordable.

Thre is a charitable event in Baltimore on June 8th to benefit the fund. If you are in the vicinity please come out to celebrate our baby and have a good time for a good cause. Here is an interview Michele did last week with the local ABC station in Baltimore:

My deepest sympathy for the loss of your little princess. This tragedy has affected each and every one of us. These kids had so much life ahead of them. They were all full of joy and life. This is never easy for any family to cope with, but please do take comfort in knowing that your little girl is now resting. God promises us that we can see our loved ones again some day. (john 4:28,29)

Of all the beautful children taken from us too soon, I feel most connected to Joey and her short, but incredible life. Please honor her memory by adhering to the Gay family request of donating to Joey's Fund - through the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation. I am a die-hard NE Patriots fan, and I am sure that Joey had an angelic hand in the Ravens (Joey's Team) recent victories!!! :)

My wife and I wanted to say how very sorry we are for your loss. It touches us deeply. We have such sorrow.
I wanted to leave a few scriptures that can help soothe and hopefully help heal your hearts. These have helped us in some painful moments in our lives. Ps;18;6 Jer. 29;11,12 Maybe these can ease your pain some. From our hearts we want you to know how much we care. Sincerely, William and Lisa Mooren

I am so deeply sorry,A life cut short..Josephine was a beautiful little girl,This is a horrible tragedy and will never be forgetten,You will forever be in my thoughts..
January 26, 2013
Dear Family of Josephine,
It has been nearly two months since your tragic loss. How are you doing? My prayer is that you continue to heal; let yourself grief by talking to family and friends. Talking about your feelings to a “true companion” who will listen pathetically can bring a relief. (Proverbs 17:17) Writing your feelings or your memories of dear Josephine can be soothing to the soul. We all grieve differently – at our on pace and in our own way. May you continue to find comfort from those with kindred spirit as we await God's wonderful promises for tomorrow!
January 25, 2013
God bless you! God will hold you foever

May Josephine's smile forever be remembered! She is beautiful and precious, and as I have lost a niece at age 5 several years ago, the pain is different for everyone. But we think of all your angels everyday and I made an ornament with all the kids and teachers on it and put it on our Christmas tree because Christmas trees and angels belong together all of them were there so we could honor and remember them. I hope and pray that some day your family will find peace and some happiness, we prayed for all of you on Christmas day and we hope our prayers reached you and you felt God's arms more then ever. I hope this year brings you some kind of peace and dreams keep coming to her Mom for things for her to keep doing in Josephine's memory. -The King Family

Praying for you always!
January 04, 2013
I am so sorry for your loss. Words cannot express how I feel. My heart aches for each and everyone of you.

December 29, 2012
i picked Josephine cause i have a son with autism and i relate most with her. I am deeply saddened by this and i will be praying for the whole family. loosing a child is bad enough but one that was special in many ways including being autistic is horrible.
Many prayers to this family!!!!
December 29, 2012
I am saddened by all of this...I chose Josephine to remember...not knowing her birthday was the same as my dearly departed mother's and her name being a name my own father would add to mine...Kathlene Celia Josephine Evans. Josephine has been with me in spirit since that horrible day. I think of her therefore she lives. I write her name on each list I make so she is not forgotten. She will never be forgotten. Love lives forever.
December 29, 2012
At the University of West Georgia, where I am a faculty member, a group of us have selected families of the tragedy to pray for consistently over the next year. I selected little Josephine and wanted you to know that I will earnestly be praying for you in her absence. Like a quote I read on-line from her family, I too am very confident that she is in the loving arms of Christ and joyful in the presence of God. May His love comfort you at this time.
December 29, 2012

And their blood will be precious in his eyes." Psalms 72:14
December 27, 2012
Josephine Grace Gay, your name is the name I remember and will always remember. When I saw your name I thought it was so lovely and I ached and wished for you to be okay... for things to be reversed and for you to be alive and well and live the full life that was taken from you. When I read your birth date beside your name.. my heart sunk.. it became heavy far more heavy than I thought it could become... I thought it was already there. Josephine, you have the same birthday as my seven year old daughter Lillian Grace. So your name little angel is the name I say everyday "Josephine Gay 12/11/05 seven years old." I will carry your name and your image forever.. May you rest in peace. I will always remember you.

This morning (Christmas Eve)I was at the diner in Sandy Hook. A fellow was paying his bill & he said to me "How are you doing?" I said I'm Ok, how are you doing? He looked at me & said "I lost my granddaughter, she is gone." I ask what is her name, he said Josephine Gay. I hugged him, said I was sorry for his loss. With tears in our eyes, he thanked me & walked out the diner. God Bless all 26.

This is a video tribute I made for the families, victims, the community of Newtown, and all who were impacted by this senseless tragedy. I'm at a loss for words and felt that this was the only way that I could fully express myself. My heart is particularly heavy this Christmas Eve and I ache for each of these beautiful children and their families for not being able to spend it together this year. Rest in Peace Josephine Gay and may God bless all of you.

The sky is filled with Angels
With puffy lacy wings
The remnants of God's beauty
With treasures they now bring

Each one of them a Guardian
That travels in the sky
To watch throughout eternity
Their parents from on high

Smiles that come from Angels
They fall like crystal rain
Eases earthly burdens
Lifting all life's pain

Halos so astounding
That glitter gold each day
Following their loved ones
In such a perfect way

Wings in gentle breezes
That fall from up above
Kissing every parent
With everlasting love

Angels soar through heaven
With everlasting light
Looking down from heaven
Saying their "goodnights"

Kissing all who loved them
So gently on the face
This life's tender mercy
Each parent can embrace

Wings and shiny halos
Travel from on high
Surrounding all their loved ones
They never say good-bye.

Please know the the nation mourns for you. Your loss was a loss to us all. My name is Diane Hach and I reside in Burlington WI. Our small town was shaken by your loss...and we hold you in our hearts. I am leaving a poem that I found by an unknown author....I hope it lifts your a heart just a bit.

The Cord
Author Unknown
We are connected,
My child and I,
By an invisible cord,
Not seen by the eye.

It's not like the cord
That connects us 'til birth
This cord can't be seen
By any on earth.

This cord does its work
Right from the start.
It binds us together
Attached to my heart.

I know that it's there
Though no one can see
The invisible cord
From my child to me.

The strength of this cord
Man could create
It withstands the test
Can hold any weight.

And though you are gone,
Though you're not here with me,
The cord is still there
But no one can see.

It pulls at my heart
I am bruised…. I am sore,
But this cord is my lifeline
As never before.

I am thankful that God
Connects us this way
A mother and child
Death can't take away!

December 21, 2012
Twas' 11 Days before Christmas around 9:38
When 20 beautiful children stormed through heaven's gate.
Their smiles were contagious, their laughter filled the air.
... They could hardly believe all the beauty they saw there.
They were filled with such joy, they didn't know what to say.
They remembered nothing of what had happened earlier that day.
“Where are we?” asked a little girl, as quiet as a mouse.
“This is Heaven” declared a small boy. “We're spending Christmas at God's house."
When what did their wondering eyes did appear,
But Jesus, their Savior, the children gathered near.
He looked at them and smiled, and they smiled just the same.
Then He opened His arms and He called them by name,
and in that moment was joy, that only Heaven can bring,
Those children all flew into the arms of their king.
And as they lingered in the warmth of His embrace,
One small girl turned and looked at Jesus' face.
And as if He could read all the questions she had,
He gently whispered to her, “I'll take care of mom and dad.”
Then he looked down on earth, the world far below,
He saw all of the hurt, the sorrow and woe.
Then He closed his eyes and He outstretched His hand,
“Let My power and presence re-enter this land!”
“May this country be delivered from the hands of fools”
“I'm taking back My nation. I'm taking back my schools!”
Then He and the children stood up without a sound.
“Come now My children, let Me show you around.”
Excitement filled the space, some skipped and some ran
All displaying enthusiasm that only a small child can.
And I heard Him proclaim as He walked out of sight,
“In the midst of this darkness, I AM STILL THE LIGHT.” My deepest condolences on your immeasurable loss.
Respectfully,
A Parent

Of all the beautiful children lost on Dec. 15th, Josephine will be remembered forever by me for we shared the same birthdate December 11th. Her picture seemed to speak to me. Now as I learn she was born in Maryland and I live in Virginia,and used to live in Olney, MD; there seems to be another connection. I will forever honor Josephine on Dec. 11 and she will be my angel reminding me to live everyday to the fullest and to not sweat the small things. Sleep sweetly precious angel.

Strength to face each day and strength to LIVE and not give up on the rest of the life ahead of you. I know now you need your time and space...in time I hope you can find that strength from some where...I am praying for you.
December 20, 2012
Michele, Bob, Sophia and Marie,
I am so sorry that your beautiful Josephine Grace was taken from you. I've lost my only grandchild 3 years ago, and I understand that you will struggle with the "WHY?" for as long as you live. There is no answer that will satisfy you, but I have concluded that when I get to heaven, I will ask God "WHY?" and his answer will satisfy me. Rest in the comfort and love of your friends and family. You don't have to be strong. They and your entire country, are praying for you and supporting you, as we do, and will continue to do. Again, I am so very sorry.
December 20, 2012
God bless you!
December 20, 2012
You are such a Beautiful Girl. I Hope the Stairway to Heaven is purple just for You
December 20, 2012
Josephine, we have never met, but last Friday the world became your adopted parents along with all the other little angels. There are no words I can say to make any sense of this for your parents, I unfortunately know this first hand. I have an angel that was taken away unexpectedly, no words will sooth, no explanation will ever make sense, all we can do is keep them in our prayers offer a shoulder, and send love. All they need to do is go thru their emotions lean on each other for comfort and know that they will see you again one day!
December 20, 2012
You do not know me, but like the rest of the country my heart has been breaking for you since this happened. I also have a little girl named Josephine…”Joey,” and I was compelled to write & let you know how sorry I am for what you are going through. I know words are so inadequate, but I just wanted to let you know my heart is aching for you, and I'm praying for all of you each and every day. May the memories of your sweet little Joey bring you peace and comfort in the times ahead.
December 20, 2012
As the mother of a 6 year old autistic boy, the loss of Josephine tugs deeply at my heart. I will never forget her silly "green cone" photo as it simply brings the biggest smile to my face. I see Josephine in all of the special children in my son's class. She is too precious for words. May she rest in peace.
December 20, 2012
Rest in peace little angel, My sincere condolences to the Gay family, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

I am sure Josephine is up in heaven, enjoying the beauty of God's kingdom and watching over her parents and siblings. I love the color purple because I have lupus, but now I have a new reason to love it, because it was the favorite color of a sweet beautiful girl. R.I.P angel!

December 20, 2012
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Gay,

While I don't know you, nor you me, we do share a name and (almost) a town. I and my family live in Easton, and because there aren't many of us Gays around these parts, I suppose we also share a certain kinship as well. (My daughter's middle name is Grace as well, and my wife's middle name is Marie, which is another unexpected coincidence; and, in fact, my favorite color is purple.) And so while I and my family wish you all of God's grace and love in this very difficult time, I also hope and pray you accept our's.
With deepest sympathy, the Gays
December 20, 2012

To Joey's family, I cannot imagine what you must be going through. I can only hope that you can find comfort in the love you receive from all around the world. Joey's photo was the first I saw when I got online, and it is forever etched in my memory. My son is 3yo and autistic, and I cannot imagine losing him. Now I fight for others on the spectrum, not only because of my son but because of your precious daughter. Thank you so much for sharing her story, and know that she is touching lives everywhere now.

Who deserved spins and twirls
Jewels and pearls
To be on top of the world
Except for this lady
When she passes I went crazy
I haven't been the same lately
But just remember the nice things she did
We wanted her to get older than a kid
I wish you love and comfort because I do care
I am so sorry she could not make appassed the new year

To the family and relatives of Josephine Gay-
Tonight I had the HONOR of holding JOSEPHINE GAY's name and memorial candle at the Manchester Ct's Community Vigil in Center Park. It was attended by several different clergy, ( including our RABBI PLAVIN of Temple B'nai Israel) and including hymns played by the Salvation Army band, prayers and tributes - Politicians also spoke and it was very moving to participate and be asked to hold a memorial name... I felt very close to this little lady who had just turned 7 yrs old and prayed that she is lighting up the sky with her smile and shining peace throughout the universe. This was an evening that was one I shall not forget and now has a very special meaning for me. Rest in Peace, sweet Josephine....I will light up my candle every year for you, and your fellow classmates, teachers and other heroes of Dec. 14th, 2012.

My most sincere condolences to you and I have said my Prayers for her safe journey into Heaven.

December 19, 2012
From the moment I read about your daughter not an hour passes that I do not think about your family, and many of those thoughts are accompanied by tears. My daughter is in kindergarten, and she not only shares your daughter's name, Josephine, but she was also born on December 11 and turned 6 last week. The irony shocked me, and has had a very strong, lasting impact. I searched for info online to find some way to reach out to you, and want you to know that our family is praying for you and will continue to do so. There are no words that can make such a horrific tragedy any easier, but know you are not alone in your mourning and Josephine will never be forgotten.
December 19, 2012
My heart and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. May God comfort your broken hearts and heal the wounds of your souls that ache because of the tragic loss of beautiful Josephine.

I realize there are no words that can ease the suffering you are experiencing. Know that you are not grieving alone. Though we can't begin to imagine the pain you feel, this nation grieves with you. I have been touched especially by Josephine's story. My son, Creed, shares a birthday with Josephine. We celebrated his 7th birthday, just as you did Josephine's, on Tuesday of last week. Not a day has passed since I read about Josephine that I have not cried for you. I just feel compelled to share with you that I am committed to praying for your family, that my heart is broken for you, and that each year on December 11th, my family will honor Josephine's memory and pray for you.
December 19, 2012
Our heart broke as a nation when hearing about this tragedy and then again when we heard it hit one of our own from Centennial high School Community. Words cannot express how sorry we are for your loss.
December 19, 2012
My deepest sympathy and prayers are with you and your family. I am so sorry for your loss.

I am deeply saddened by the Sandy Hook incident and I want to send my condolences to Josephine Gay's family. I am seventeen years old and live in California. I don't have kids of my own but I can't only imagine how hard it must be. When I heard it was possible to put something into the guest book i wanted to send my support. My love and prayers go out to all the families who lost a loved one and if you need anything at all I am here for you. I have been doing my best to give support to the families in anyway I can. For Christmas I plan to make a ornament for each of the children and staff involved to honor them and celebrate their life, I know it's not much but if there is any other way I can help please let me know.

I know in a time like this that there just aren't any adequate words. We had recently lost both parents in a fire and then heard news of this too. It is so sad. But I know God is very real and I know He is taking beautiful care of your daughter and will do the same for you and your family. I am so sorry you have to walk through something like this. We will be praying big, heartfelt prayers for all of you.

No words come to my mind when trying to express my sadness and condolences to you for your immense loss. Out of all the innocent ones who went to Heaven on the 14th, your little angel stands out to me the most. I don't know if it is because she shares the same first name as my mother Josephine, or if it is because her beautiful smile touched my heart through her photo. It's probably a combination of the two. I cannot imagine the pain you are feeling and if I could take your pain away and make this tragedy never happen in the first place I would. I know there are no words that can make any of this better. I just want yall to know that the nation mourns for your sweet baby girl and you are in our thoughts and in our prayers. Josephine Grace Gay's memory and light will live on forever and she will never, ever be forgotten!

Words cannot express my sympathy for the family and friends during this very sad and difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with you for the loss of your beautiful child. I would like to share the following:
NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

I give you this one thought to keep –
I am with you still – I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone –
I am with you still – in each new dawn.
December 18, 2012
Parents everywhere cried with you that day, just know she will be watching over you! God Bless this young lady and her family!!
