Too Soon Gone

On Saturday, a cousin passed away. His death was fairly sudden and unexpected. Life is so short sometimes.

Yesterday was Jared Beckstrom's funeral. He would have been 33 this April. I remember him quiet and kind from family reunions.

I am glad to know that this life is only temporary and that separations are not permanent. We mourn his void. Jared will be missed.
Parents should not have to bury children. Brent and Debbie, you are in my thoughts and prayers. (As they are with Jeff, Jamie, Justin, Jana, and your families.) May your hearts be comforted with your memories of Jared and your knowledge of the Gospel. May this separation seem like a blink of the eye.
