Peace

My nephew Colton, as many of you knew, has been in the ICU at the hospital. Today he left us and returned to his Father in Heaven. We know he is in a better place, and we know that he can now be at peace and without any pain. We know that he is happy where he is. It has been hard for us, but knowing that there is life after death has been a great comfort. Thank you for all of your prayers and good wishes. They have helped us tremendously to get through this trying time and have helped us keep our faith strong. Although we are very sad at this time, we are at peace knowing that Colton is in a better place.

Oh my that is hard. So sad for you and your family. Of course without faith it would be unbearable. But such a hole will be left in everyone's heart until they are reunited with him. I'm so very sorry.

I am saddened to read of this. I am happy to read of your faith. I wouldn't know how to go through any tragedy without my faith and am always encouraged by others. Prayers are going your way.
