-Hug Him Once For Me (by Erica McClure)-

By baby Braden's mommy:
"I wrote this song when our 5 1/2 month old son went to sleep for his nap on earth one day and woke up in Glory. A friend of mine who also lost a son, made the video for me. I pray it is a blessing to someone today. If you have any questions please go to
Also this is now available online in MP3 format at the church website. Visit resource browser, show this person, Erica McClure, and it's listed under Braden's Song."
My blog:


-Still (Words and Music by Gerrit Hofsink)-

The audio of Still, by Gerrit Hofsink, is available on iTunes. The piano/vocal sheet music is available to download and print at

The song "Still" is the story of Gerrit Hofsink's grandson who was stillborn, as experienced by his daughter. It was music that helped him heal. He wrote "Still" as much for himself and his family as for other families, as a ray of hope in a dark time.



Here is a link to "Faces Of Loss, Faces Of Hope" where I found many quotes that I love.

  1. I just want to say thank you so much. 3 year's ago i almost took my own life from losing my own son when he was 11 in a half months old and the pain was unbearable, as i was about to take my life and pretty much hand my soul to the devil, i came across your song hug him once for me. Thank you so much for saving my life that night and helping me through the bad days and the hoildays, and i am so sorry your loss, if you ever need anything even just an ear to listen you can always contact me at
