  4. Mrs. Congedo says:

    Dear Malory,
    I’m so very sorry to hear about the death of your sister. Life is sometimes not fair. You and your family are in my thoughts.

  5. V.Bergerson says:

    God, bring comfort and peace. Peace is your essence. Peace is your name. Bring peace to this family who has lost their precious child in death.

    We come to you, God because we know that you sorrow, and are acquainted with grief. You too have endured the loss of a child. You empathize.

    We can’t help but ask, “Why?” Forgive our insistence, our confusion, even our anger. We believe that you are just, and we ache to understand how this tragic death is an expression of that justice, how it expresses your love. We also know – in our minds at least – that you seldom answer the “why?” question. We press you, but on these matters you are mostly silent.

    What we ask instead is “how?” How can we move forward? How can this bring us together and not tear us apart? How can we now live under the shadow of this untimely death? Answer this prayer with your comfort and guidance.

    There is no way to remove the pain. The grief is real. The only sanity is to know, to believe, in a life beyond with you, when all the scales are righted and the sufferings are made good. We trust you and your promise that while this child’s life on earth is done, her life beyond has just begun. With that release we lose her and let her go into your arms, then by faith receive in return the boundless comfort of your presence. That is all, that is enough. In Jesus.”

    I will never forget holding you when you came into this world. God Bless, with love your God Father.
