Condolance Gift

I was only 24 when our two-year old son died suddenly; my husband and I were left with a baby daughter and each other.  The loneliness and grief that became our reality in just an instant is beyond my ability to express. It was worse in a way for those around us that longed to help but couldn’t reach us or didn’t know how to try.  It has been 29 years now and I have seen others around me that have endured the loss of a loved friend or family member.  We grieve the loss of a child, or a beloved parent, a friend or a spouse.  No one is exempt from this experience and this little book is my attempt to bring peace and understanding to those who are suffering now.  I cannot tell you that the pain of grief will be gone, but I attempt to hold out the reality of reunion and the never-ending love that binds us to those we have lost for a season.  May God bless you at this time.

This little book is dedicated to Spencer Dale Farnsworth, Stephan Taylor Farnsworth, Philip Thomas Farnsworth, David Michael Farnsworth and Luke Sherman Farnsworth who taught me so much about life and what is really important.  And to Grace who could light up a room with happiness, til’ we meet again…
