I didn't have a question, but instead wanted to share how one of your Ask Calvary responses has touched me. A short history, if you already know my name, you probably know that I am a bereaved parent. My first child, a daughter was stillborn just over a year ago. Through my grief progress, I have met many people who have suffered similar tragedies. One of the challenges that we face as bereaved parents is that people don't understand our grief, especially if our child died prior to or shortly after birth. Yesterday, a friend of mine, who is a relatively new believer (attends a different church) asked me the question about honoring the dead that you now have posted under "recent questions". Because most of society doesn't understand our behavior, we are constantly looking for justification in our actions, and what better source than the Bible support our actions. I didn't have much of answer for my friend, so I sent her here to Ask Calvary. I thank you greatly for your answer. We don't feel that we HAVE to explain our actions, but it is nice to have a little "back up" to show people that we're not crazy, we're just heartbroken. The part about your response that touched me the most is that my friend named her son Aaron. Only the Lord could have given you that perfect example for my friend. Thank you for serving in this ministry. God Bless.
