Not sure what to say?

So very saddened by your loss. No parent should have to bury their child. Please let this verse be of encouragement to you. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.

I never met this courageous little boy or his family, but ran across his obituary by accident. I am touched by his story, his faithful family, and the amazing town that gave Christian an early Christmas. May God be with you with His comfort.

My heart is so saddened because your adorable little boy has died. He is one of God's angels now and he is well without pain or suffering. You will see him again. It isn't good bye, it's see you later son.
My condolences go out to you his family with tight hugs and prayers. He was just on loan from God and God wanted him back. Hard to believe but it's true.

Having lost a young child myself I can appreciate the pain of heart the family is experiencing.Young children have always been special to Jesus he knows your pain. I wait for the fulfillment of Isaiah 11:6. You have my sympathy.

Sorry for your loss. May you find peace and hope in the difficult days ahead by trusting in God. Romans 15:13.

Rest in peace,little angel. Condolences to the family.
