Celebration of Life

We are going to celebrate sweet Jules’ life Sunday night from 4-7 with a visitation and her funeral Monday at 3, both at Cornerstone church in Litchfield.

I never thought I’d have to write an obituary for one of my kiddos, so today I had to google how to write an infant obituary.  Such fun stuff for this mom (sarcasm)  But, here’s our tribute to our little lady and more information for the coming days.  Thanks for the prayers!  It truly is amazing the peace the Lord has given us at this time….

Juliet Faith Lundeen, age 38 days, passed away peacefully November 14th, 2012, at home in the loving arms of her parents after fighting hard of a genetic disorder, Edwards Syndrome.  Juliet, deemed “incompatible with life,” was a miracle and served a mighty purpose in her short life, spreading the love of Jesus and proving that every life matters.  “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart.”  Jeremiah 1:5

Juliet was the daughter of Ryan and Allison Lundeen (Dassel).

Juliet is survived by her big brother Tate (4) and big sister Kynlee (3), who loved her dearly.

Her paternal grandparents are Tim and Ronelle Lundeen of Cokato, and maternal grandparents are Tom and Sue Young of Mosinee, WI.

Juliet was preceded in death by her Uncle Eric Lundeen.

Jules won the hearts of all who knew her, and her life will be greatly missed.  There is such peace for her family in knowing she has been made perfect, free of pain, and dancing for her Jesus in heaven.  “The Lord gives, the Lord takes away, may the name of the Lord be praised.”  Job 1:21

A celebration of life will take place on Monday, November 19, 2012, 3pm at Cornerstone Church in Litchfield, MN.

Visitation will be held Sunday, November 18, 4-7pm and 1 hour prior to the service all at the church.

  1. I didn’t know your story before today. However, your story has blessed my soul. I think I’ve read your entire blog today! I have cried at the passing of Juliet, but have been blessed by her story of beating the odds! May God bless you and keep you and the entire family to comfort you all. Thank you for being strong enough to share your story.
    Blessings to you all!

  2. As a recent retired nurse, I am new to the world of blogging, and the Lord sent me to yours for a reason. I have been following it since you found out you were pregnant with dear Jules. My husband and I have been praying for your family and will continue to lift you up in the days to come. You have been such an inspiration to me in my spiritual walk….you will never know, Allie. May the Lord continue to provide the comfort and peace that only He can in the days to come. What a blessing to know that Jules is with Him and that you will be with her again one day. With love and prayers……

  3. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Thank you for sharing the life of your daughter and sister, Juliet Faith. Such a special girl and such a special family. God bless you!

  4. Since I began following your story, each night at bed time, as I would rock my little girl I would say a prayer for your sweet baby Jules. Tonight though, it was the sweetest thing…although my daughter is only 19 months old and doesn’t understand death and heaven (or maybe she does…one will never know), I prayed again for your family and told about Jules going to heaven and being an angel to watch us. She then pointed up and said “Jss” (Jesus) and blew a bit kiss up and waved. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your story and your faith with me. I pray for continued strength and peace for you.

God bless.
