My sincere condolences to the family of David. It breaks our hearts when death separates us from the ones we love so much especially when they are as young as David. At times like these, "God is near to those who are broken at heart; And those crushed in spirit he saves." (Psalm 34:18) We look forward with you to the time when we will be able to welcome our loved ones back! (John 5:28, 29) I hope this will bring you a measure of comfort.

I never met David and I do not know the family. I wanted to “thank you” for including in his obituary in the newspaper that he lost his battle with addiction. The drug epidemic in our nation is claiming lives of so many young people—depriving us of seeing all they could have been and achieve had they lived. By mentioning Davie’s loss of life due to drugs, I believe another’s life may be saved. No one “using” ever thinks they could end up losing their life because they think they “are in control” of it and they are too smart for anything like that to happen. Seeing someone’s obituary in the newspaper who lost his battle speaks so much. I am very sorry for your loss. Thank you, again.

June, I am Jackie's friend, Carmene, in Arizona. My heart cries for you as a Mother and please know you are in my thoughts and prayers today and all this weekend of our Lord's resurrection. Maybe it will give some solace to know your son is at peace now and no longer battling his demons, resting in the arms of Jesus. With my love & sympathy.....Carmene
