When a child dies…
What do you say to the parents?
Do you say..”I’m so sorry for your loss”? Do you say..”I know how you must feel”? Do you say…”I can’t imagine how you are dealing with this”?…Is there anything you can say that can really help them? Can you REALLY imagine their pain?
I have been crying all day for this little boy, Drake Holder, the son of a past friend of mine. A boy I have never met. But still, I cry. I thank God my two boys are still breathing, still living, still here for me to hug and watch grow up.
This is what I did say.
God must have really loved you to have shared his angel with you these past years.
God must have really needed Drake to come home for something really special. God must have had something special, really special, only Drake could do. Be ok. Be ok…because he is in God’s hands.
He is home.
