  4. I am deeply sorry for your loss. The loss if a child is unimaginable. May you find comfort in Gods promise to “swallow up death forever” and to “wipe away the tears from all faces” in the future. (Revelation 21:3,4) At Isaiah 41:10 He says “I really will hold on to you with my right hand.” May the God of all comfort be with you in the days ahead.

  5. Nigel,

    Grief is exhausting. Rest and remember to feed your soul. Losing someone is never easy especially your awesome son at such a young age. I am really sorry for your loss and can not understand your pain. At times like these you have to lean on your faith and try to accept that God has a bigger purpose for us. May all the love that envelops you give you strength and may you take comfort in knowing there is one more spectacular angel above us.

    With my sincere sympathy,

    I have no words to express the sorrow I feel for the loss of your beautiful and gifted son. God often answers our prayers in a different way, but always His perfect way. Jonathan is no longer bound by his illness and in the presence of the Lord Jesus– and now in perfect peace.

  11. I still can’t beleive such a bright person got took from us too early.
