Memorial Service

The memorial service for Silas was this afternoon. We just had a few family come visit for it - a small group. Our pastor had a brief but profound worship service for us. I am thankful to reflect on God's purposes, which are higher than mine, for all my children. Silas is busy praising our Lord now, which is a great and high calling. And, he never had to go through all the pain and trouble of this life.

Yet I certainly still grieve at his death. There is a particular kind of pain in burying your own child.

I can't thank our friends and family enough for all the love expressed in various ways. I pray God would reward you because I am not adequate to do so.

Soli Deo Gloria.

Lee and Kristy,
There are no words. But we are praying that God gives you comfort during this difficult time. We wish we could be there to offer some comfort. Prayers are being lifted up by many people and we miss y'all!

I can't even imagine having to bury a child. And I'm so very sorry that you had to. Know we are continuing to pray for you. In the midst of the grief, I am thankful for Silas, and for the purpose and plan his life had.
