It is with great sadness that I tshare with you that Frederick Campbell Brooks, son of Nathan and Amelia and brother of Sandre, passed into the arms of God tonight at 9 p.m. I was with them at the time and can tell you that in death he was surrounded by love and peaceful. Nate and Amelia want to convey their tremendous gratitude to the people of Grace who have been so faithful in their prayers and offers of help. At this time, they have asked for some private time to grieve with their family, but will be most grateful to receive cards through the mail. I am sure that there will be many opportunities to care for them in concrete ways in the near future and we will let you know how you can help them. As always, I am immensely grateful to be part of such a loving and generous community of Christ.
