Our deepest sympathies to your family on the loss of Jonathan. We are members at Faith Pres on Bost Road and Richard and Beth, his uncle and aunt are so dear to us. When they hurt, we all hurt and do hurt for his family. May the Lord God comfort you as you grieve. Jesus knew loss too and cried when his friend died. He knows our pain so he is a perfect comfort. Our prayer is that you’ll take all you’re feeling to Him. He can help you bear it AND walk you through pain and suffering. He experienced pain and suffering on our behalf. May he bring you peace and supply all your needs as you look to him. He is near!
