Ezra Joseph David Strait

Newborn son of Benjamin and Ashley Strait, Ezra Joe was born prematurely at 35 weeks on May 2, 2023 at 9:44 pm. He weighed 3 pounds 3.1 ounces and was 17.84 inches long.  He gave us the gift of his life for four days, 14 hours, and 34 minutes. In his brief life, he heard his mommy and daddy sing to him, the sound of his big sister’s voice, passages from the Bible, and experienced the unconditional love of his family. He was baptized and confirmed on May 4, 2023.

He passed from his mother’s arms and into the arms of Jesus, while being sung to by his parents on May 7, 2023 at 12:18 pm at Mott Children’s Hospital. He fought so hard, and now his battle is won. He is healed and whole, with no more pain or suffering.
