The night before Jubilee went home, as her body was shutting down, she was struggling to breathe, clinging to Seth. Seth told me that that was a very hard, very dark night for them, and they called a very good friend to come and pray with them. When he arrived they prayed together and prayed Scripture over Jubie and she calmed down, let go of Seth’s neck and reached up, with her eyes clear and bright, towards heaven. After that point she was calm, peaceful and her breath was shallow, but steady. Seth and Chelsea and Isaac spent the next hours holding her, kissing her sweet face, and thanking God for her.
As they held her outside in their yard, watching the sun set, Jubilee breathed her last breath as the sky ignited with glorious color. They all gave a cheer at her entry to heaven and praised God, knowing that Jubilee is whole, perfect and at complete peace in the arms of Christ.
Jubilee’s body will be cremated, and there will be a celebration of her wonderful life in Paonia Park. I will post the details once I know them.
Seth wanted to also thank all of you for your amazing prayers and support during the months since Jubilee’s diagnosis. Your prayers helped, and will continue to help, carry them through. Please keep them in your prayers as they face life with a Jubilee Grace shaped hole in their hearts.
