Wow Chris,

Reminds me of 2 Cor 1:3-4:

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God." (2 Cor 1:3-4: NASB)

And while my situation pales in comparison to the experience you and that family are going through, I have been through (read: put myself into) some painful stuff. And God has used me to come alongside others going through what I went through -- living out the idea of PARACLETOS from 1 John 2:1-2 (my stupidity and sin wreaked havoc in my life -- but God brought healing and restoration, and has used me to help others in the same stupidity and sin).

May the Prince of Peace hold you all in the hollow of His hand.

~ Keith
