Celebrating the Life of Little Christian "Dozer" Drews

A Sweet Little Man of God!

Let's face it - Marsha and David have some handsome little boys and Dozer is no exception. That bright eyed "Korean with blonde hair" sure knew how to make his mama's heart melt whether he was talking about his "two foreheads" or outgrowing his lost blanky. Marsha is such a good mama and boy did she ever dote over this little one. And who could blame her? The little cutie was so musically inclined that he could play a guitar AND an egg slicer. I guarantee that he is making some sweet music up in heaven tonight!

Yes, Jesus has one more sweet little angel to bounce on his knee. Christian, whom Marsha lovingly referred to as Dozer, passed away on Tuesday evening. He was a three year old boy wonder who was so excited to begin school in the coming weeks. He had only been a spectator to his brother's lessons so far but he was a quick learner...

"one, two, fwee, foh, fiiive, sixteen, benineteen, fowteen, nineteen. I count fo you mommy!!!"

I know his mama, daddy, and his two brothers miss him deeply. They know he is in God's loving arms but that doesn't stop the pain they are feeling. I ask that you please, please pray for our friends. Marsha and David are amazing people and my heart is simply broken because this happened to them. Your prayers are coveted.

Cards or Correspondence can be mailed to:
David and Marsha Drews
c/o Rachel Harris
12830 N. Cypress Lane
Tomball, TX 77377

She will be sure to get them all to Marsha and David.

I pray that you would bless my dear sweet friend and comfort her and her husband and those little boys as they go through what is certainly the worst time of their lives. God I ask that you would keep your eyes fixed on them and your arms around them. I ask that you send thousands of angels to be there with them in their grief and comfort them. God, give them peace, the kind that surpasses all understanding. Give them joy. I know that only you know why these things happen but it just feels so unfair. Still we trust you. Please help us when we fail. And Father, give Christian a big hug and a kiss from each and every one of us. Thank you, Father. In Jesus' name. Amen.
And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.1 Corinthians 12:26
Marsha and David we love you and will be here praying with you through this. We can't even begin to fathom your thoughts or emotions right now but please know that we are here, whatever you may need. We love you.

Dozer, we'll see you soon, sweetheart!

Oh my! My heart aches for them this morning. I can't even imagine their pain and sorrow. I have a sweet 3 year old boy as well and can't imagine life without him. My prayers will certainly be going out to them right now.

When I began reading this post, I kept thinking what a beautiful child. I can't begin to imagine the pain the parents are going through. I will be praying for them as they go through this very difficult time. Praise God that they WILL see their child again and that he is in the loving arms of the Father...but in the meantime I will pray for their comfort.

My heart breaks for what they must be feeling. I will be praying for them---God can use the encouragement of others---with prayers, cards, a shoulder or listening ear to carry them through these next months of grief.

I can't even fathom the depths of grief David and Marsha are experiencing right now. I will hold them close to the Savior. I've added them to my sustaining prayer list.

My name is Bruce Heckendorn Jr, I am one of the Firefighters who was out there with Christian. There is not a day that goes by that I do not think about Christian, Before that night Christian and the Drews were Total Stranger and I was a Father of TWO boys Ayden 4 yrs old and Braden 2 yrs old and before that night would end I would leave being a Father of THREE boys Christian now being my THIRD, he went from being a little boy I have never knew to a little boy who I will always love as my own. Marsha and David from the momment I walked onto your property I knew that he was VERY Loved and I knew I had to do what I could to bring him back to you. He is Very Loved and missed by his new adopted Mothers and Fathers who were by his side that night. I will never nor want to forget Christian or you, you are now apart of mine and the Firefighter family and if you ever need anything we will be there.
