Loss of son
Going thru bad time right now. Thursday morning our 25 year old son Michel Vest was found unresponsive in bed. I received phone call at work from our 20 year old son that I needed to come home asap. It has been a rough 2 days for us. Got funeral services arranged for Tuesday evening. At this time no cause of death has been determined.

I don't know what to say. I hope you can someday make sense of this tragedy.
Life is so precious, there are no guarantees. Cherish the memories.

Sometimes the saying, "everything happens for a reason" just does not apply. There are no words at this time to comfort. I pray that God keeps you in his arms for strength at this very hard time. So very sorry for the loss of your son. You will be in our prayers.

We are so sorry for your loss. Like you, we lost our 21 year old son in 1994. It takes a long time to heal, but you will. Every day is hard, but, take it from me, it will get better. God Bless and our prayers for your comfort and healing will be answered.

We are so sorry for the loss of your son.

There are no words to heal your loss but let sad memories fade and cherish the good times and happiness he had and brought to life.
