The sweetest kisses you'll ever see.

I've been meaning to post this video.  
It was the very last video that I took of my sweet man. 
It was taken maybe 3 or 4 days before he left my arms...
It was the first time in weeks that he did anything like this.
Warning: if you have a heart, it will surely melt

I love you baby... I miss you every single day.


Love,

  21. Awwww....melted for sure. He is so adorable, and so are the both of you.

    Our daughter can't do almost anything, so any little attempt she makes means the world to us. I always think of how much energy these little things must take for her, and as I watched the video, I think the very same thing of Tripp. He loves you so incredibly that he mustered up every little bit of energy to respond to you, and respond in the sweetest way, too : )

    He is such a beautiful child.

  22. I was driving home about a week ago and I was thinking of Trip, A truck pulled in front of me and slowed down, I was just staring at the back end and a little sticker witha reflective back caught my eye........On the sticker it read "John 3:16" I knew it was from the bible and wanted to know what it meant. I pulled over and looked it up on my Black Berry......."For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life". With tears in my eyes I knew he was doing just fine.....Rest in Peace Little man.......God Bless You Trip and your family, you touched this soul, and I thank you for it! God Bless! From CT

  66. Courtney that is just the sweetest video! Thank you for sharing! You have been on my mind so much lately and in reading some scripture the other day I thought of you as soon as I read this passage in James. Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don't try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way. If you don't know what you're doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You'll get his help, and won't be condescended to when you ask for it. Ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought. People who "worry their prayers" are like wind-whipped waves. Don't think you're going to get anything from the Master that way, adrift at sea, keeping all your options open. (James 1:2-8 MSG)

  67. What a sweet video of your sweet boy. Thank you for sharing.

  68. Courtney-I am absolutely in love with this video...That sweet baby loved you so much. As hard as he fought, as much suffering as he went through, you brought him peace. You showed him what it meant to be loved and you were his reason for fighting. Thank you for posting this! Thank you for blogging through your journey. Still praying for you and sending all my love.

  70. What a sweet video and precious memory of your angel. I am so blessed to have known Tripp's story! You and Tripp have truly changed my life. I am a funeral director and I see grief all the time and I am always very thankful and blessed to come home to my family everyday, but you and Tripp have given me faith and hope that get me through "tough times". I can't imagine the wave of emotions you are going through right now and I wish there was some way to take some of the pain away from you for just a moment. So many people have been touched by Tripp and his short little life that I have no doubt each and everyone of them (me included) would be honored to take a moment, an hour, even a day(s) of your pain so you wouldn't have to feel it. Courtney, you are truly an amazing person. You are God's angel here on earth, and he gave you the biggest and hardest task of being Tripp's mommy because he knew no one could love and cherish him like you could. I keep you and your family in my prayers everyday. As difficult as it is right now please remember to smile because I know Tripp LOVED his mommy's smile :)

    1. I have been a nurse for 18yrs, so I have seen a lot of grief, as well. I have almost NEVER seen the love and selfless dedication to another human being as you so easily express for Tripp. As much as a medical nerd I am(always reading up on Medicine) I had never heard of EB! Much to my dismay. I have a new mission ...to spread EB awareness. My 8yr old dtr wants to be a Dr & said "mommy, wouldn't that be cool if I get o be a Dr & find the cure, make it go ALL AWAY medicine for EB? Very cool, but I hope we don't have to wait that long! Courtney & Grandma & grandpa& fmly: thank you all for sharing your beautiful, awesomely talented musical genius & angel of a soul with all of us. Hope all our love brings you some comfort amidst your grief.

  71. This is so precious. My heart aches for you and your family! I love all of the photos and videos you have posted of your little solider! Such a smart, loving, strong little soul! He has touched so many lives during his short time on earth, and his fight has brought awareness and hopefully one day a cure so that others will never suffer from this horrible disease again! God Bless you and your family. Our family will continue our prayers for healing and peace during this difficult time.

  83. Courtney - I just received a link to an audio recording of a friend of mine giving her testimony at a church in Chicago. It is awesome and so powerful. She lost a child in 2008 and the Lord has done amazing things in her life. She talks about how he prepared her for that tragedy all her life, brought her through it, and what he is leading her to do now. I hope you will take a listen. I think it will speak to you and your pain. It's about 50 minutes. Her name is Hope Atchison.

I cant begin to imagine how badly you are missing your baby because I know how much I miss him and all your your stories and those sweet videos. I can't tell you enough how Tripp, you and your family have made an impression in my life. I pray for you all the time and for all those sweet memories to give you strength every day! You all are amazing and although I don't know you, Tripp or your family...I love you all. I pray for all those brave children with EB and I thank you for making the world aware of this horrible disease. I wish I lived closer to give °c ok more support but I will tell you that Debra is my new friend to donate to in Tripp's memory. I pray for a cure. God Bless you!

  95. God Bless you Courtney, he is your very special angel now, watching over you and making sure that you are safe and comfortable, just like you had taken care of him for all the days of his short but special life!

    ReplyDelete
  96. Awe! That melts my heart. Courtney you are one awesome mom I have followed your blog for at least a lil over a year now. I know I did not come across your blog by accident or by Facebook. My son was born with several rare conditions we are actually awaiting date for surgery in Cincinnati right now. I was having a really hard time understanding what God's purpose was/is with my child having all this. So I know he put your blog in my path for a reason. You have taught me so much as to not ask why but to ask how can I help other children like my son the only thing is is I haven't heard of many with his condition. I would love to speak to you further maybe through email mine is brittanybusby32006@yahoo.com. My thoughts and prayers have gone out to you and your family since the first blog of yours I have read. It would be an honor to speak to you even through email because this surgery he has coming up is really scary for me and I would love to ask you some questions.

    With love,
    Brittany

  98. I am in tears as I watch this video. Your son has taught me to appreciate life beyond anything I have ever experienced before. I love my son dearly and Tripp has made me truly appreciate everything I have in life and in my beautiful boy. He has taught me to let go of petty things and try to be a better person everyday. I truly hope I will get to meet him someday up there and thank him for he truly is an angel. Sending lots of love from Denver Co

  120. Courtney, I'm saddened of your lose of baby Tripp but I know with all the wonderful memories that you and he have created he will forever fulfill your heart. God has a plan for you, cause you just have the kind of love that the world needs plenty of. You were most definetly right, this video could make your heart melt. You said your little man hasn't done this before but I believe little Tripp knew this is what his mommy needed at that very moment, SMILE. I couldn't have never imagined being in your shoes cause it would take a unique type of person to fulfill your shoes. God gave Tripp the RIGHT kind of mommy to walk him through a little piece of this world. Watching your little man throw kisses back at you is something I will always remember when I read or see something pertaining to EB. May god bless you and help you find comfort in your time of need. Never doubt god cause he gave you a special piece of heaven when he gave you your little man. The world loves you Courtney and I wish I could be as couragious as you at this moment.

  123. I am at a loss for words. You were right my heart is in a puddle on the floor. I can't believe how much I love this baby that I have never met. I can't believe how much I miss this baby I have never met. I can't believe how much he has impacted my life. You were right Courtney when you said his job on this earth was done well. I have become closer to God myself after following your blog. I have vowed to cherish every moment with my children. I have learned so much about love, devotion and selflessness. Not a day goes by that I dont think about all of you. I pray that you find peace. Your post on the 22nd was probably one of the most beautiful things I have ever read. An amazing tribute to an amazing little man. When I listen to that most perfect butterfly song and then look at that angel face I feel like my heart is literally being twisted and torn apart. you are the greatest mother a child could ask for. I Hope you continue to blog and advocate for these children and adults suffering from eb. They will have a powerful ally in you. Eb research is now on my donation list and I didnt even know about it until I found your blog a month ago. Thank you Courtney and thank you Tripp. you have no idea how important you are to all of us. Remember that God did not promise happiness in this life but in the next. Tripp is definitely rolling in the joy and pain free happiness of the Lord in heaven. May God bless you and keep you. Then again he already has.

  124. Courtney, so precious that you could catch those kisses on camera to cherish forever. I continue to pray for you each day. I will never forget Tripp. He has changed my perspective on life forever. I can't wait to meet him in heaven someday and thank him for inspiring me to be a better person. Speaking of inspiration, Courtney YOU inspire me to be a better mother. There are days i get frustrated with my toddler and then I think of how you gave it your all in the toughest of situations. You have helped me be a stronger and more patient mother - THANK YOU! I will miss your blog if you stop blogging but I will never forget you. You and Tripp had such a perfect bond of love - the bond will never be broken. He is in the spirit dimension now but still with you. You were the strongest mama for him and now he is going to be the strongest son for you. You held him faithfully in your arms and prayed so hard for his comfort. I know he is doing the same for you now. Now you have the strongest boy ever, a hero, holding you in his arms. You both can't wait to be in the same place again - spirits hugging and playing for eternity. Until then be patient with yourself, love yourself, and be lifted by the love and prayers of others and the solace of knowing that everything you wanted for Tripp, he wants for you. He will comfort you in sad times and your joy will be his joy. I cried watching the elmo butterfly video as i noticed in the end how elmo was holding the butterfly in his left hand - the same hand Tripp held Elmo in all the time. Thank you again for sharing your journey with Tripp (which will never be over..just changes over time and across dimensions). Thank You for all you and Tripp have done to help me in my life and to help me be a better person. Love and Hugs to you - Amy

  157. He is just too precious! And those kisses must be treasures. He's left us with such beautiful memories. Thank you for sharing this intimate moment with us. My 21 month old asked me about Tripp today and motioned "crying" and I told her that he's not crying anymore. God must be enjoying Tripp up above.

  158. courtney, this surely melts my heart! Thank you so much for sharing your story. Tripp has changed my life. I think about him every day, most of the day. He was truly an angel, sent here on earth to bring us close to God. I cannot thank you enought for letting me get to know this wonderful, strong little boy. Tripp has changed peoples lives, not only nationwide, but worldwide! I am from Cyprus, a small island all the way across from the Atlantic! Your little angel, has touched more lives than you can think of! I also send you an email thanking you, I hope you can read it when feel better. I pray for you every night. Thank you, thank you. I wish I could meet you and give you a huge hug. You are an inspiration. I hope I can be one tenth of the mom you are. thank you.

  179. Dearest Courtney,

    Watching this video has once again brought a HUGE lump in my throat, and tears! I came to know about Tripp only after his passing away, and ever since that day (14th Jan), I been been reading your blog almost every day, and everytime I do, I cry. The first two days, I just cried and cried, reading his story and your story.
    I just want you to know that you are the bravest mother in the world, and Tripp, like you said, the strongest boy and yes, an Angel.
    Before I read about TRipp, I had never even heard of EB. But the Lord has now put a burden in my heart to give and support people who have EB and towards research on finding a cure, even if its in a small way.
    I live in a little corner of the world in the Northeastern part of India, near Myanmar, in a place called Nagaland. Courtney, you and your little one have touched our lives even out here- more than you ever know. Your faith in God is truly inspirational.You and your little one are true heroes of our faith!
    Keep going strong Courtney. My prayers are with you. God bless you, as He takes you to a new chapter of your life. I know He is going to use you mightily!

    ReplyDelete
  180. Thank you so much for sharing that adorable and unforgettable video! I just witnessed LOVE in its purest form. What a fighter Tripp was! I wish he knew how much he was loved not only by your family but also by the readers of your blog.
    I find myself praying for you and your family every day. Tripp's story left a permanent mark on my heart and his bravery guides me to enjoy this life more fully.
    I know God will be taking good care of your precious little angel. He also most certainly has great things waiting for you, too. I'll keep reading your blog to see that you'll be okay one day. I also dream of reading that EB could be treated and no baby would have to suffer the kind of pain Tripp went through.
    Tripp was and is my hero!

  184. What a great video! Bless his little heart. He was so sweet. I just put a little package in the mail for you. And I have a funny story to share: The lady at the post office said "Ponchatoula? I have heard of that before. Recently. Why have I heard of that word before?" and I reply "it MUST have been because you saw the story of Tripp Roth, the amazing little boy who recently passed away from EB..." Flash forward twenty minutes later after I had told her all about the package I was sending and why and everything I could possibly think of about you and Tripp...we are both crying...people in line behind me have gathered around to listen (I guess I get pretty animated when talking about something I am passionate about)and when I FINALLY finish my story she replies "That is such an amazing story! What an amazing little boy and his mommy! I am going to read her blog tonight! But now I remember why that name was so familar. My friend just got a dog called a Ponchatoula Pointer! So now because of you sharing your story, and a little ponchatoula pointer, five more people from the St. Louis, MO post office know about you and Tripp and EB! Look for a little something in your PO box coming from St. Louis, MO. Thinking of you always! Alison
