Saying Goodbye

How do you say good-bye when you've never said hello?

On Thursday another dear grandson was born, but already he'd gone Home. His parents, and all his family, are mourning his passing, but receive comfort from the Comforter and from all our dear ones near and far. Named Friedrich William, he was 15 weeks at his passing.

Goodnight, my tiny boy.

Von,
I was so sorry to hear of Friedrich's passing; I know his arrival was greatly anticipated. I will be praying that God's grace and comfort is a very real presence in your family's lives in these upcoming days.

What a blessing to know that we "don't grieve as those without hope..."
