Death of a child

Yesterday, on Halloween, a friend of mine became a proud father.

Today, he is a grieving father. His newborn son died of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

I am taking the day off. I don’t feel like blogging today.

May God bless him and his family, and that is that.

Here are a couple previous columns of mine.

Hug your loved ones while you can.

    So very sorry for your friend and the entire family. Our neighbor experienced a similar tragedy several years ago, and because of strong support from family and friends and by the grace of God, they were able to work through the grief. I’ll pray for your friend and his family.
