I am truly sorry for the loss of your baby boy.  Many feel that death is a problem that
has no solution. But there is a solution namely, the resurrection that God will carry
out by means of his Son. God wants you to see that solution. He wants you to be
there to embrace your loved little boy again. Imagine planning together for an
everlasting future, never again to say good-bye!  May the promises found in God's
word and the love and support of family and friends continue to be with you during
this difficult time. (John 11:25, Revelation 21:4)
