Matthew Warren, youngest child of Pastor Rick Warren, suffered from several aspects of mental illness his entire life of 27 years. In a moment of deep depression, he took his own life Friday.
We were not created to die (thanks, Adam) and we certainly were not created to outlive our children. Not being a parent, I can only begin to sympathize with what Rick and Kay must be going through.
Please be in prayer for the family in this time of profound grief.
