Basketball is such a fun game and Zeke lived his love. May the family find comfort in knowing that. And know that his future life now rests in the hands our loving heavenly Father who yearns to return that jubilant life to him. Job 33:25

To the family of Zeke, I am sorry for the death of your son. Try to remember that there is no correct way to grieve. Some are able to move on with relative ease. Other cannot. In such cases, the process cannot be rushed, so do not feel compelled to meet some deadline at which point you think you should feel better. Realize though, that no matter how much we love another person, we cannot control their life nor can we prevent time and unforeseen occurrence , from befalling those we love. Mourn and grieve as you must but don't forget that you still have to make the best of the life that is ahead of you. Pray for help to do things to soothe your pain. 1 Corinthians 1:3,4.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not're coming here to me.

Our deepest sympathy and condolences. We all hurt and feel sorrow because of your loss. It's so shocking when someone is so young and full of life. A parent never expects to bury their child and so we all sympathize with you. May God give you calm and uplift your heavy hearts.
