To: Rev. & Mrs. Cox,
Rev. Sharon Grimstead called to inform me of the loss of your precious son. Please accept my heartfelt condolences, sympathy, prayers, and concern.

I know both of you are in Christ, and so was your son-and that is wonderful to know that
Ketih is in the hands of the God who loves him.

E know that Romans 8:28 is a deep, sure truth of God that He can make all things work together for good to those of us who love Him and who are called according to His purpose.
From: Minnie R. Washington, God's faithful servant.

To the family of Ryan, I want to start by saying I never met Ryan.
I wish I had. It sounds like he was an amazing man who cared for all he knew. The world needs a lot more people like he was. He was a hero. Many people owe their lives to him. To his family and friends I offer my deepest sympathy and prayers. Please know people care. God be with all of you in the coming days and weeks.
