On the death of Ivan Cameron
There can be few griefs so unbearable as that of losing one's child. At whatever age, it feels somehow so profoundly unnatural that the child should pre-decease the parent. It offends against justice, and runs contrary to the moral order.
Cranmer sends his deepest and most sincere sympathies to David and Samantha Cameron on this sad day. It is strangely pertinent to the post below, for there is no doubt all things work together for good to them that love God. And we have a God who knows what it is to lose a son. As grief fills the room up of their absent child, Cranmer prays the Cameron family will reflect on the incomparable joys this brief life brought them; the lessons he taught them; the priorities he reminded them daily to reconsider.
Bless you, Ivan. May you find eternal joy and peace in the place created for you from the foundation of the world.
