Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same. ~Flavia Weedn

"There is not a day that goes by that you are not on my mind, Thaddaeus James. Happy Birthday son..."

"My condolences go out to the family and friends of Thaddaeus.  From reading about him I know he will be missed and was loved by many.  No matter what, it can truly be said that death is an enemy and soon it will be brought to nothing (1Cor. 15:26).  I have found much comfort in the Bibles promise of a resurrection hope of our loved ones at John 5:28, 29 and hope you will too.  Death was never a part of Gods original purpose, in fact he yearns to soon bring an end to it and the suffering it causes your family and friends.  Revelation 21:4 states: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."  I did not know Thaddaeus, but I read his obituary and I hope these scriptures will help to bring some comfort knowing that others care.  If you would like to learn more about the Bibles promises and the hope it brings, please feel free to contact me."

"My heart is aching for you, Michael, and Thad’s entire family. Although I never had the honor of meeting Thaddaeus, I feel like I knew him well because of you, and the stories you so often shared about him. You spoke of his kind, gentle, sensitive nature. At the memorial on Saturday we could feel the love, and loss, of such a special soul. We take comfort in knowing Thaddaeus will live on in you, in Cassie, in his aunties and uncles, his cousins, in every one who was blessed to know him. We will honor Thad's memory and keep him in our hearts forever. May his soul rest in peace.

Much love to you all, Andrea"
