Weve all grown a
little older over the past several days.
Grief has gnawed at us like some unrelenting ache.
Sorrow has pierced our souls.
For one so young to have
left us has caught us off guard.
For we were not ready for Williams departure from mortality.
We were not ready for death to take him by the hand and
Lead him into the Great Beyond.
For we are all too human.
And we are at a loss for words at time such as this.
For the questions of why? Linger in all of our hearts.
What did he do? What did his
And silently we know he
did nothing. They did nothing
A medical condition beyond anyones control has caused this
Untimely death of such a beautiful child.
And yet we would be
remiss, if we didnt find the words of
Grace to offer Jacque and D.K. Words that say that we love them.
And we know in our hearts that God loves them too.
That the God we
know and love-grieves also for baby Will.
For it is not Gods nature to revel in death.
But to weep along with us.
And yet it is in the
tears of God that we begin to feel again the love of God
Has for each of us. Young and old.
Rich or poor, common or uncommon.
Red, yellow, black or white-we are
all precious in Gods sight.
so we ask you special mercies upon Williams family.
For they have endured and suffered greatly.
May your grace
Clothe them and undergird them in this time of their bereavement.
May our prayers and
presence speak to them, nurture them,
Encourage them in the time ahead to know that our love and faith in
Your Son will see them through.
So, God bless little
Will, and help his mom and dad to sleep at night
And know that your grace will wipe away their tears and
Joy will lift them on eagles wings to touch the morrow
With a new found hope. Amen.
Mark H. Young.
