Our son, Scott Amirault, died this weekend
« on: October 20, 2009, 06:31:29 PM »
I want to thank all of you who have lifted up Scott in prayers over the last couple years. He grew greatly in the things of God, especially recently. We found out he died of a heartattack over the weekend. Michelle and I are deeply grieved. This is a deep pain. Please don't call as we are in the process of making arrangements, etc. When we get over this, we plan on putting extra efforts in the new apologetics site we've been planning in recent months. We will dedicate it to Scottie. We miss him so much.

I know he is not missing all the pain he suffered on this planet. He is in a peace that passes all understanding. Go out today and try to deliver someone, somehow of the death thoughts that plaque most of mankind. Introduce them to a Savior who can truly reach into the grave and snatch them out unto victory.

O, Death, where is your sting? O Hades/hell, where is your victory? The sting of death is sin and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Peace, Gary Amirault

Gary and Michelle, I am so deeply sorry and my heart grieves along with yours. I know that you take comfort in knowing that He is in a much better place. But that doesn't stop the hurt of the separation. May God wrap His loving arms around you and your family and comfort you. Again, I am so incredibly sorry.
God bless you, both.

"I knelt to drink,
And knew that I was on the brink
Of endless joy. And everywhere
I turned I saw a wonder there."

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.

Dear Gary Amirault

I am new here, and don't know you, but wish to thank you so much for this site. I have read so many of your articles, and you certainly have had an impact on my life. Your articles are clear and easy to read, nice sober-minded approach you present.

Of course I would also like to offer my condolences.

Kind regards, Esther:)

This is absolutely horrible news and a parent's worst nightmare.  It's also a time when words fail me.  But I do think that Scottie was still very fortunate to have such kind and loving parents.  Please know, Gary and Michelle, that you will be in my thoughts and prayers and that I share your certainty of Scottie's presence with our Heavenly Father. In His Love, John :HeartThrob: :HeartThrob: :HeartThrob:

Someone told me when my daddy left that has gone into the Kingdom "within you."

Yes, what a shock.  There is a blessed hope that I see is comforting you in this time of deep sorrow.  Grieve and miss him, all the while knowing he has stepped over and will be waiting on the other side of the veil.

Blessings, James.

saying sorry does not begin to heal you, but the prayers of many will with time. May God's peace and comfort be with you in this trying time.

Grace and peace,

I'm shocked by this news.   And you said it so very well, though, about the people gripped by death thoughts in this world of pain. 

Though your grief must be so deep, you will get through this difficult time because of the faith that is in you.   

Words fail me.
