Wayne and Maryann,
Words can't come close to expressing the sorrow in my heart for this horrible loss you have to endure. There is no greater loss than that of a child. I hope all the wonderful memories of your son stay deep in your heart. Remember all of the good times and good things of your precious son. May God give you the strength, peace and comfort in the days ahead. Know you are dearly loved.
Therefore you now have sorrow; but I will see you again and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you. John 16:22
