[38] For I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor might, [39] Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8: 38-39

  1. My sincere condolences Don. It’s hard to believe it’s been 5 years. A blink of an eye from Larry’s vantage point, but much longer from our dusty world. My father passed five years ago as well. I like to imagine them busy helping to guide and protect those whom God assigns. Peace of Christ be yours and your bride.

  2. This is beautiful Donald. You and your wife and children must all miss him more and more as the years go on. Find comfort in knowing he is praying for you all until you all unite again in Heaven. Pray for us all Larry. ????????

  3. Can’t believe it’s been 5 years. IIRC Larry was nonverbal or pretty much nonverbal, but what you have shared with us about Larry’s life and his passing speak louder than any words. Blessings and condolences to you and your family.

  4. You cn be sure, Don & Cath, that your beloved son is with his and our God, with the angels and saints, praising & worshiping Him, and adding his voice to that of Jesus, and Mary, interceding for you both. God bless.

  5. Thank you my friends. It is hard to comprehend that my boy has been gone now these past five years. An old maxim is that time heals all wounds. It does not, but time usually does apply scar tissue on them. I comfort myself with the thought that my son now has perfect joy and peace, but even such consolation does not make me miss him the less, nor should it I suppose.

  6. Our hearts too share in your wounds. Wishing to say something to help is never enough. The feeling of helplessness enters in as your profound loss reaches my soul…so please know that even if these following sentiments don’t heal, that at the very least they are sent with love; Grief never ends..but it changes.
    It’s a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness nor a lack of faith….It is the price of love. (Author unknown.)


  7. Oh gosh Donald. Your words just brought tears to my eyes. The bittersweetness of life. Such a beautiful boy Larry was and is and how much he is loved. He is so blessed to be so loved! It’s the same love, I imagine, which as our Heavenly Father has for us. We need more of this sustaining love.
