Abijah Lorena-Jade Ritchie
10/07/2015 – 10/14/2015
Between those two dates is not just a dash, but rather a life full of love, happiness and joy.
A life, although short, that deeply touched many people, leaving a permanent impression on all our hearts.
We extend not just words of thanks, but deep appreciation and gratitude for the loving, compassionate and kind care that the doctors, anesthesiologists, nurses and all the supporting staff at Albany Medical Center who assisted in the birth and care of our daughter extended to both us and her.
We also express our deep love to our family & friends who have been tirelessly supporting us both physically, emotionally and spiritually over the last several months and who continue to do so.
It comforts us to know that Lorena is not suffering, but that she is "sleeping" in death until our heavenly Father Jehovah awakens her to life once again here on earth in a restored earthly paradise together with countless others who also "sleep" in death. Our tears will turn to tears of joy.
We long for that day, when Isaiah 65:20 will be fulfilled: "No more will there be an infant from that place who lives but a few days". When we will say "Death, where is your sting" - 1 Corinthians 15:55.
Lorena’s parents Ray Jason & Leticia Ritchie extend a warm invitation to all of Lorena's friends and family as well as anyone who has lost a child or loved one to death to please accompany us for the funeral talk to both comfort and be comforted.
The funeral talk is scheduled for Sunday November 1st at 4:00 PM at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses located at 400 Albany Shaker Road, Loudonville NY. Doors will be opened at 3:30 PM; all are encouraged to arrive early. No collections will be taken.
