Today a dear friend and teammate of my son and daughter was laid to rest.

A young man.
He died serving his country.

There are few expressions of condolences that can be shared with the family that could begin to ease the heart wrenching pain and loss.

It may be that it can best be shown,
By honoring our country,
Respecting our United States of America flag,
Thanking our servicemen,                                                                                 
(Past and present)
Reverencing the National Anthem,
Including our soldiers in our prayers,
And praying for peace.
Praying for a blessing upon his family.

Faith is one of the only things that can bring solace at these times.
And a knowledge that our Creator knows each and everyone one of his children.

"..That even a sparrow shall not fall on the ground without your Father.
But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows."(Matt. 10: 29-31)

That His is not a world of chance.
That His love transcends all understanding.

That He will hold an aching heart until it heals.
However long that takes....

"The Savior's loving warmth and healing touch lift us and give us strength to endure."~The New Era
