My Son Mikael

My son, Mikael, took his life last night. We found him this morning.

Thank you to those who have written, phoned, visited or showed in some way that you care. Funeral will probably be Saturday early afternoon.

I want you all to know that God is good. God is always good. It doesn't matter what happens, God is good. I say with Job in the Bible: "The Lord gives and the Lord takes away, blessed be the name of the Lord."

Dearest Maggie, words aren't enough but prayers are. I hold you and the family in prayer.

I have no words that will help. Know that I love and prayers come from my heart to you and yours. Yes, God is good; I pray that He surround you and carry you and your family through this sorrowful time.

I am so sorry for your loss. This is such a difficult and impossible time for the family and especially for you as a mother. May God hold you in the palm of His hand through this time and in the months and times to come. My prayers are with you...Shirley

Debbie--

I've never met you, but I love you. The words in your blog have been of help to me as I've made my own journey in the past few years. Your comments on my own blog have encouraged and shown love and support. You've shared glimpses of your family, including this beautiful son.

Know that my tears are mingled with yours as I, too, grieve your loss and pray for our Heavenly Father to bless you with increased comfort, blessings and knowledge of how very much He loves you.

You don't know me, but I am so struck by your candid expression of God's love through your loss. Please accept my concern for you and yours.
