Hector is alive in Heaven
"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it." (NIV luk 18:16)
"The baby is in Heaven", says big brother Lucas, four years old, and his little sister Victoria two years old repeats "Baby eaven!"
Hector was only alive here on earth for 16 weeks. He spent those weeks inside the womb of his mother and died a couple of weeks before he was born a rainy day June 12 of 2009.
He was perfect and had inherited his fathers hands and his mothers feet and legs. He had a dimpled chin just like his big brother Lucas.
He was named Hector Martin Emmanuel Winther by the reverend of the hospital. Hector means steadfast. Hector was the great and most noble fighter of the Trojan War in which he died a heroes death. Martin means warrior and Hector's grand-grand-father is bearer of the name. Emmanuel means "God with us" and he got the name after his uncle Tord.
The Reverend blessed Hector and read Psalm 23. There were many tears.
"Now Hectors is with God. He has a great time there and one day we will meat him."
A psalm of David.1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness
for his name's sake.
4 Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6 Surely goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
