  16. Dearest Emma and Joe, This message comes with a great deal of sympathy, sadness, and sorrow for the two of you. Life is never easy, but when losing a young son, in the prime of his life, it is a terrible shock; one that hurts to the very core. Parents should never have to bury their child; it goes against nature and what we believe. If I had the words to comfort you, I would share them now, but you know and I know nothing can be said that takes away the heaviness in your heart. It helps to know that friends are grieving with you, but you alone are faced with this deep tragedy and I pray that The Lord will strengthen you with his love. Your faith is abounding; that I know from Facebook. Your close personal relationship with God will strengthen you; He knows your grief and He grieves with you. My prayers are with you both. My apologies for not being able to attend the services; I am there in thought and prayer. Loving you, Charlotte Mericle Maxcy

  17. Our thoughts and prayers for you and your Family. It is so difficult losing a Child. We have walked this path. We lift you in prayer and ask for the comfort of God to surround you and peace to fill your hearts. Know that your Child walks the streets of gold and knows peace so sweet, he is with you each day in your heart and will remain there each day. Cherish your sweet memories until you walk with him again.

  18. Emma and Joe, Our deepest sympathy goes out to you'll. You will be in our hearts and prayers. Very sorry we were unable to make it tonight.
