I have to say my heart breaks for each of you. My own daughter is expecting her first baby this Dec. and I have told her she will soon experience an
entirely new and higher level of love than she has ever imagined. I know this, my love for my children is such that if I were in your place they would
be preparing for my departure as soon as she leaves because I cannot comprehend the loss or will to go on.
I recently attended a funeral service for a very close friend's child who passed suddenly at the age of 14. My friend somehow had the unbelievable
courage and fortitude to deliver the most beautiful eulogy himself. I am not ashamed to admit that I was a leader for the "no dry eye in the house"
that day, especially when he made his last statement. After all the grief, all the suffering, and everything horrible that had fallen on that family
he looked us all in the eye, smiled sincerely, and in a calm voice said this: "don't cry because it's over. Be happy it happened at all". He was
able to hold his head high as he walked the steps down to the floor and took his seat while the minister closed the service.
He has lived that example without fail for the entire time since that day, and I have gained a respect and strength I didn't know existed. I hope it
somehow allows you and yours a degree of peace, and that if you know the Lord as your Savior it will only be temporary. I and my family will pray for
you all daily and I'm sure others will be doing the same.
May God bless you in the most unexpected and incredible ways as time comes and goes.
