Have you ever felt sorrow and grief for the loss of someone you did not even know?  A local couple (who lots of our friends are friends with…although we don’t personally know them yet) lost their son to SIDS in August.  I have cried and grieved and feel hurt right along with them although I don’t even know them.  Maybe it’s because I have a newborn.  Maybe it’s because I have had other friends who have experienced the loss of a child.  Maybe it’s a God thing—maybe it’s because I know they are my brother and sister in Christ.  I don’t know what it is.  But I feel such utter sadness over the loss of sweet baby Ayden.  Please keep his mommy and daddy in your thoughts and prayers, especially during the holidays as I know it will be a rough time for them.

    I understand exactly how you feel. My heart aches for this couple whom I have never met and I cannot imagine the pain they face each day as they struggle with this loss. I have been praying for them fervently and hope that God will give them comfort and peace.
