So sorry to learn of the home going of Briggs and I pray God will comfort you, Kim, and your family. In Psalm 116;15 Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.
His loved ones are very precious to him and he does not lightly let them die. My heart goes out to you,because like so many others, I have suffered the lost of a child. Maybe Psalm 27:14 might help you, Wait on the Lord, be of good courage, and he shall strenthen thine heart:wait I say on the Lord. God Bless and comfort you!

Dear Chuck, Kim and Family,
I was so sad to hear of your son's early departure. No one expects such things but when they occur as they did for you and for us we are being prepared by the Lord to move from the sight realm into the unseen realm of the Spirit where the abundance of truth that we have taken in brings great reality and reliance upon our Great God and Savior Jesus Christ.
These things are difficult but not impossible because with God all things are possible. You will be in our prayers this evening as we meet to receive God's Word. This evenings service is in memory of your precious boy Briggs Robert Buck... saved, safe and eternally secure in the everlasting arms of the Good Shepherd.
All of us from Grace & Truth Church salute you and send our love and condolence in your time of loss and grief.
Please don't hesitate to call upon me if I can help in any way.

Love,
Scott & Suzie Warne
