Matthew and Kelly, I know there are no words to express the loss you have experienced. Please know you are in my thoughts and Aiden is in my heart. Jacob is heartbroken over your loss as well. He asked me to pass his sincere concern and love to you. He is so happy that he was able to see Aiden when he came home for Christmas break. I feel so honored to have been his Miss May May.

I could not help but to stop and take time to share my condolences with little Aiden's parents, family and friends. I don't know the pain of losing a child in death, but I am saddened by it. The scriptures, though, give us a hope unlike any other. There is a passage where it focuses on a youth who died, but was then resurrected soon after. 1Kings 17:1724. This is just a glimpse of what will soon occur as promised in scripture. May that passage give you hope as you deal with such a loss.
