To send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of Evvi Skahan, please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
Her life will live on through her parents, Christopher and Miranda (Snellen) Skahan; her siblings, Emri, Boden, and Elsi Skahan; her grandparents, James and Vicki Skahan, Donnelly Snellen, and Christina Baumhoer; her great-grandparents, Keith Smith, and Matt and Marlene Baumhoer; her aunts and uncles; her cousins; and the many others who were ready to welcome her into this world.
You see, the child lives. Instead of the wind she hears the sound of angels singing before My throne. Instead of the beauty that passes she sees everlasting Beauty— she sees My face. She was created and lived a short time so the image of her parents imprinted on her face may stand before Me as their personal intercessor. She knows secrets of heaven unknown to men on earth. She laughs with a special joy that only the innocent possess. My ways are not the ways of man. I create for My Kingdom and each creature fills a place in that Kingdom that could not be filled by another. She was created for My joy and her parents’ merits. She has never seen pain or sin. She has never felt hunger or pain. I breathed a soul into a seed, made it grow and called it forth.
We thank You for the life that began for so short a time to enjoy so long an Eternity.
