Remembering Colin…rest in peace

Colin Stone

And He will raise you up on eagles’ wings,
bear you on the breath of dawn,
make you to shine like the sun,
and hold you in the palm of His hand.

I was shocked to hear about Colin’s death in a car accident this week.  He was an amazing young man.  This world has lost a beloved and compassionate child of God.

My thoughts and prayers are with his mom and dad and his sisters.  May God’s peace that passes all understanding blanket them in the coming days as they celebrate Colin’s life and begin to live life with an empty seat at the table.

Colin’s joy was infectious.  I pray that this is the way we remember Colin.

With a broken heart today,

    Thank you so very much for this article. What you have done is a true act of compassion and is sensitive in the way that Colin was sensitive to others. This article provides me with some joy and a considerable measure of peace. I might add, that Colin had an extreme faith in other people and most certainly died with a genuine and unshakable peace with those he loved. I apologize for using past tense, Colin still lives and that is plain to see. I thank you and wish peace upon you.
