Our heart's are breaking for out friends, the Bacas who said goodby to their 18 year old son, Derek, yesterday. Knowing their pain personally from our loss of our precious Ryan reminds us of how blessed we are that our son loved the Lord. Picturing him welcoming Derek up their around the throne makes me smile. Ryan and Derek had so many common interests as well as struggles. Losing a son to suicide is so painful. But remembering the joy they each brought into our lives in the too short years we had them with us helps. I believe that Ry will be around the throne with the other angels welcoming Lorri and Allen's son into the kingdom. But boy are we all jealous of the angels spending time with our sons.
