    When our loved ones fall asleep in death, our hearts become heavy with grief and sadness. The Bible offers us words of comfort. Hosea 13:14 says: "From the power of the grave I will redeem them; From death I will recover them." May you also find comfort in the words found at Psalm 147:3 which says: "He heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds." I hope these scriptures can help you cope with the sadness and grief now and in the days ahead.

    I'm so sorry for the loss that you're going through. No parent should ever have to bury they're child. I heard a say that I thought was really appropriate because I also lost my son. When you lose your parents it's called an orphan, when you lose your spouse it's called a widow, but when you lose your child there is no word that has been invented that describes that pain and loss . I cannot say enough how sorry I am for you and the huge loss this is for everyone that knew him because of you were around James he was helping you with something. I spent Over a year getting to know James and Kacie and Jayse and welcoming baby Elliott into the world. When I first met James I thought that he was rude and a little scary. He was this trucker with a big dog. I really enjoyed his fiancé my close friend Kacie and her son Jayse who I fell immediately in love with. He was not around but on weekends at first because he was out driving truck during the week so I would always let him have their time on the weekends so it took me a littler longer to get to really know him. As our friendship developed I wasn't so scared of him anymore because I saw the man he was. Him and my husband became very close and there for I had no choice but to spend more time with him and learn he wasn't so mean after all. He told me so many times he was looking for Kacie his whole life and didn't know until the moment he met her the frist time He said as soon as he saw her he new she would be his. Unfortunately she was so great she was already taken by someone else. And since He would not ruin someone's relationship he just settled in and waited for his chance to snatch her up and snatch her up he did just the first opportunity he got and never let her go. he wanted to spend The rest of his life with her and I'm so glad that his dream came true. Because he did leave this world with a loving spouse at home and beautiful children. James never missed a day of work he was one of the hardest workers I've ever seen when he was done with his work he always went and knocked everybody else with their work and generally in really good spirits. He told me that it was his goal to make sure his family had a home and to make sure that they were taking care of and he might not have gotten as much time as we all wanted but he did succeed in accomplishing that goal. A couple weeks ago they were able to get a house. When I had my last son James of course thought he was cute you know like most babies but didn't really think one way or another it just made him look forward to his and son being born . But when he found out that they were having James Elliott it was the proudest I had seen James in the time that I've known him. When he first introduced me to his new son his smile lit up the room I was sure his cheeks were cramping from smiling so big and for so long. because it was his whole face ear to ear. A little bit ago James got some time off work and was able to spend it at home with his new baby holding his little body and kiss his little face and trying tirelessly to get Jayse to follow directions the first time which as we all know is not Something little boys like to do but no matter how frustrating it was sometimes as it is with most kids you could see the pride on James's face when Jayse says my daddy is James Horner. (And he said it a lot to everybody). I'm glad that I had the pleasure to share in some of his joys. The passing of your baby boy leaves so many with a heavy heart. I hope your faith can help alleviate some of the grieve. I will be praying for all of you.
