Sad News...

Daniel, Brito and me.

Dear Blog readers,
Please, prepare yourself for a sad and 
shocking message.

Our son, Daniel Kim Christian, has suddenly left us, after being involved in a boat accident here in the archipelago outside of Vasa, on
Wednesday the 10th of July, 2013.
He should have been celebrating his 28th birthday in September this year. 
Born; 26th of Sept 1985

He had a happy positive personality, always laughing, and knew how to live the life without worrying about any unnecessary problems. He took the day as it was and was always willing to liberally share what he had with his friends. And there were friends in multitude! Many told us after the funeral that they have never seen such a crowded ceremony in this church before, nor as many flower bouquets and condolences. 

Daniel has been living down on Tenerife the last 2 years and we have had such a nice time together. 
He was working on one of the ice breaker boats of Sweden, Ale. 
. Every time he had to leave for work we started missing him so much and we started counting days till he would return. He was such a happy person and it felt like our home, including ourselves, came more alive as soon as he was present.

Now we only have got the nice memories left, but Gods word keep us going. We know we´ll meet Daniel again in heaven one day. Daniel believed in Jesus Christ as his saviour, and when you do so there will be a place waiting for you in heaven. That´s a promise from God!

To loose your son is for sure one of the most difficult experiences you can have.
 To make it we every now and then must remind ourselves that he in reality is up in heaven, probably having a lot of fun going on with the angles and the people who have left us before. He is having a great time! In heaven is no sorrow or problems or tears, like we have to face in this world, and it´s only us who are suffering here when we miss him so much. This is a truth that gives us comfort and every now and then we remind ourselves about it. I just like to tell you to give you comfort too.

The last weeks have been very tough. The shock we got when the message about his death reached us  made us paralysed and there are no words to explain how much we miss him. Our home and life on Tenerife will never again be the same without him, and we are having  a hard time going back home this coming week.

Please, remember us in your prayers,
Susanne and Brito.
