My heart was sadden over the loss of your precious son, Jake and wanted to give my warmest condolences to the family. To lose a child, can bring such overwhelming grief but the God of all comfort tells us at 2 Kings 20:5 He hears our prayers, he sees our tears and he feels our pain. At jw.org we can read in the Bible John 5:28,29 that not only does God care but He will remove all the suffering he sees and gives assurance that you will hold your precious son in your arms once again. May all the sweet memories you have give you calm and peace to help you through the dark moments until God’s promises come true. Again so very sorry for your heartache.
