    May you find the courage to face tomorrow in the love that surrounds you today. At this time of sorrow may these truths sustain you.....your loved one will always be as close as a memory and the God of all comfort is always as close as a prayer. It will be the little things that you will remember the quiet moments, the smiles, the laughter. And although it may seem hard right now, it will be the memory of these little things that help to push away the pain and bring the smiles back again. The day is near when Christ will call little Sylas to wake and he will awake and be reunited with his family-John 5:28,29. Those of our people who have died will live again! Their bodies will come back to life. All those sleeping in their graves will wake up and sing for joy. As the sparkling dew refreshes the earth, so the Lord will revive those who have long been dead."-Isa. 26:19. ìI am the resurrection and the life. He that exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life; and everyone that is living and exercises faith in me will never die at allîñJohn 11:25, 26.

    We are so very sorry to hear about your loss. We just wanted you to know that our prayers are with you. We also lost an infant son years ago and we know that is the worse possible heartache one can possibly have to endure but just know that God can and will bring you through and that your son is in a great place and one day you will be reunited with him. I know words does very little for the great pain you are suffering but our prayers will be for God to please send you and your family some comfort in this time of great need.
