Blessed are those who mourn: for they shall be comforted.
~ Matthew 5:4

God is love, so many of us love you all, therefore God is with you as we love on you.

This is my prayer for each member of Michael's family. I pray for your comfort during this journey of grief. We can't make it better, We can't fast forward you to a better place and time, but we can stand beside you in prayer and strength in these times when you have neither.

I can remember the day we were invited to Michael's Baptism at Grace, what excitement there was and comfort knowing Michael was starting a new life and would always be with God as he accepted Jesus Christ as His Lord and Savior, ready to walk a new life and looking forward to life with Christ. Now the reunion has taken place and Michael is where all of us look forward to. I know each of your hearts are broken, God
