To Ben’s parents…….I also have cheated death 3 times in my life. I had that same feeling as Ben, I was surrounded by a very bright light, and I did not want to leave. I also lost my oldest son many years ago. The day he died I was holding him and I saw Christ standing in front of us. Do I believe in God? How could I not? Do I miss my son? You bet I do. Would I take him back today if God would give him back perfectly healthy? No way! He is with God, in that wonderful place I got a glimpse of. A place that words can’t describe. I could never be that selfish to take him away from there and bring him back to a world that offers so much pain and suffering. I know your grief so well, but I know a day will come when it will be no more. A day when Christ will wipe our tears away and fill our hearts with joy forevermore. God tells us to comfort each other. I hope you can find comfort in these words. Your son did not die on Christmas day, he was born that day. I can’t imagine a better place to be on Christmas day than with Jesus Christ. How fortunate our boys are. May God’s grace surround us here on this earth until that day when we get to all be together.

No more comments necessary.

Later. At the funeral, Ben’s sister shares her talks with Ben before he died.
