    Dear Hallee and Gregg,

    I met Hallee once at a coffee shop in Clarksville. I remember her speaking of her family and of your beloved Jeb. I am so grieved by his passing … so grieved by the pain you must bear. I am amazed by the number of people who showed up for his funeral. I am so grateful that you felt community despite your recent move. I will continue to pray for your family. This phrase from the hymn *How Firm a Foundation* comes to mind each time I think of you : “…and sanctify to you your deepest distress.” May you unmistakably feel the comfort of the One who comforts us in all our sorrow.

    I am friends with you on Facebook via my good friend Erin Nonaka. I am weeping as I read this. I am so very sorry for your breaking hearts. I know God is with you. Your faith and your community of support is inspiring. Things to be thankful for for sure. Yet, could never replace your son. I am not sure there could be “closure” but I hope in time some healing that only Jesus can bring. I will continue to pray for you and your family. I will also check out Goodreads.
    May God continue to hold you and bless you.

  1. I’m truly sorry to hear about the devastating loss of your son, Jeb. It’s heart-wrenching to read about the pain and sorrow you and your family are experiencing. Your blog post beautifully captures the depth of your emotions and the journey of grief you’re going through. I admire your strength and faith in such challenging times. May you find solace in the love and support of your community and the cherished memories of Jeb. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Shalom.

    Halle and Gregg,

    We met several times at Navigator bible study at Fort Knox and I attended one of your book signing parties on post. My deepest condolences on the loss of your son Jeb. Was so shocked and saddened to hear the news from the Murphys . Deepest prayers and sympathies for y’all and your other kids. Would like to follow up. Don’t post personal information online so disregard email address below. But if you are good with it, let the Murphys know and they will provide me your contact information in a more private manner. Deepest condolences again.

    I don’t even have words. I didn’t know Jeb, but I am a mom and a grandma and I have tears in my eyes and heart as I write this. I am praying for you and for your family and for all those who also mourn his loss. Our God is good and I am praying His loving arms hold you tightly. Sending love, Andi

    I am so sorry for your loss. Jeb sounds like he was a wonderful young man. He is being missed by so many people. As you walk through this pain, hold tight to Jesus. He is with you each step of the way. God Bless

    I just learned that your Son passed and in wanting to know what happened I found out how so very close to the LORD he was and while I’m laying in bed at work crying so hard at your loss, at my job away from my kids, 12,14,16 I just can’t believe it.

    I also had just read through Job prior to being led to learn of your store, read of your faith, garner your hope and live with new conviction.

    I just wanted to write you here to acknowledge your precious Son Jeb and share of another life he’s touched of someone and a family he wouldn’t even have ever known.

    May the LORD continue to comfort, bless and keep you in His unfailing love and unfathomable peace.

    I’m new to your books and newsletters. I am so sorry you have experienced a mother’s worst nightmare. I’m praying for you and your family and that many will join God’s family after hearing of your loss and testimony. I was in tears even though i don’t know you and was blessed by your sweet testimony. Dear Lord, we ask you to bless and comfort this wonderful family. In Jesus name, Amen.

  2. Hallee, my heart just hurts with you as I read of your loss. I am so very very sorry for the loss of this precious young life, committed to Christ and loving his family. I know our God was not surprised by this death, and yet we are. Shocked, saddened, grieving. I will pray for you and your family as you work to heal. Thank you for your continuing trust in our God. And please be gentle with yourself and with each other. May God’s comfort give you peace. Your writing will return. For now, take care of yourselves.

    Hallee, I did not know about this until Gregg emailed me a couple days ago. He just sent me this link. As a mother who lost her son last year, I mourn with you. My overriding joy is to know where Ryan is, and that he’s having the best days of his life. I know your sweet son is also. Still, it’s so hard for those of us who are left.

    Blessings on you and your entire family. I know God holds you all in His hand.

    I’m always so far behind with my emails that I hadn’t even been aware of what was going on until just now.

    I’m so sorry this happened to you. Your son appears to have been a real blessing. I cried as I read this post. Even though it has been a few months, I know you still need prayer and I WILL be praying for you. I don’t know how I would have gotten through it if it had been me. Only God can give the comfort that is so desperately needed. And that is what I will be praying for…..continued comfort as you go through life with your loss.

    May God richly bless you and your family with His presence.

    I looked for a place where I could leave a review on the excellent customer service Hallee gives. I wanted to tell how she bent over backwards to make my order work while she was in the midst of dealing with her husbands surgeries and a move. I couldn’t find a “review” place. But I found this post.

    Hallee, what you have experienced is a nightmare no parent want to live. Our hearts morn with you for the earthly loss of your son. I pray you are soon able to say, “it is well with my soul”.
