To the family of sweet baby Liam, please accept our deepest sympathy. Losing someone in death is never easy, especially someone a precious baby. But our loving Heavenly Father has promised to do away with death forever and resurrect your son back into your arms again. Remember children are an inheritance from God and a blessing from him, so it hurts him to see your grief. (Isaiah 25:8 & Psalms 127:3) May the God of all comfort continue to wipe the tears from your eyes as we await the time when sickness, death, and pain will be a thing of the past. (Revelation 21:3, 4)
