James, there are no words at a time like this that can provide the comfort that you need for the loss of your son but you can draw your comfort from the Holy Spirit who is the only one that can bring the supernatural comfort that we need. The Bible says that Jesus Christ bore our grieve and He bore our sorrow. Cast your care over onto Him. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Terris Deas
