"And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away."
Yesterday my sister Jean and her family had to bid farewell to their son Kevin who came into their lives over 17 years ago. While Jean was expecting Kevin, she was told that he would never make it to birth. But, live he did for over 17 years! He survived many illnesses and incidences through those years but for the past four years he enjoyed relatively good health. This time, he was not strong enough to fight off the pneumonia. His body was wracked with cerebral palsy-- he was never able to walk or talk. Though not strong in body, he was strong in spirit. He loved his family and had a smile as wide as Texas and loved to give "kisses." People from all walks of life felt Christ-like love radiating from him. Kevin was a huge blessing to their family.
They derive comfort that because the Savior died for us, we shall all live again. They will see and live with Kevin again -- they are an Eternal Family!
May peace and comfort be with their family as they grieve and mourn the loss of their son Kevin.
