Steve and Carolyn,

You are all in my prayers. I will really miss Theodore. He was a wonderful boy. I have already begun to ask his intercession. He was and is such a blessing to our Church!

Oh my, when I read your blog tonight I was shocked. I am so sorry for the loss of your son. Your's is the second blog this week that I've come across where death has touched the person who is the author. On Easter Sunday a young wife lost her husband in a boating accident.
My family will continue to pray for both families.
Peace and consolation,
God bless

Dear Steve, Carolyn and Children,
Our family is so sorry about this news. I was out of town until yesterday and just became of aware of your loss. All day I have thought how sad it will be not to hear (in that very deep voice) "Hello Mrs. Brown" and feel Theodore's firm warm handshake. I will miss that terribly!! Selfish, I know. You are right, he is with God and we should be so full of joy for him. Please know that you have our continual prayers.

With much love,
Rand, Blair & the kids

How can one who has no children possibly comprehend what you and your wife now must endure. I pray for you both and your family, God's grace and consolation to allow some sense of His Peace and Love to sustain you during this most heart wrenching time. My heart truly aches for you both and your family. God bless.

May I offer my sincerest condolences? From a stranger who wandered in during your time of suffering...

Eternal rest grant unto this precious young man, O Lord. May Your perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace.

May our Lord comfort you and your dear family. May your memories comfort you as well.

Oh my goodness! I have not visited your blog in a while and come by to see this! (You may remember me from my Trying to Conceive blog.) I am so truly sorry for the loss of your son! I will pray for the repose of his body. May God keep him in his wonderful comfort and care. God bless.

I've not kept an eye on the blogs for a while, and so only just read your news. It's tragic - sorry for not writing this sooner: prayers for you and your family.
