Sorry for your lost

Dear Family, You have my deepest sympathy for your loss. God will provide you with comfort during this grievous time and he promises a better future. Revelation 21:3,4 God will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.

God is our strength and peace and understanding will follow, you have a victory story not being a victim. We all miss loved ones. Just knowing this earthly place is not our home but a place to share for gods glory. Touching others is what Malachi's book of stories will do.

Dear Jay: There are no words to express how deeply saddened we are by your loss..our loss of this precious little boy. I met him while walking in the mall with you and Leonard Poteat. He was so full of life and such a joy. I pray for you and your family that God's love and peace will surround you. I understand the loss of a mate, but not of a child. I can only imagine. May God bless you in the coming days with the assurance that someday you will see him and Kelly again. Isaiah 40:31 comes to my mind for you. Heartfelt blessings and prayers to you and your family.

What an endearing young man. My sympathies to you and your mother. May the Heavenly Father wrap you in his arms and give you peace, Grace, and love. I am so sorry for your loss.

 

The Rivers Family posted on 9/5/16

We are saddened by the loss of your dear loved one. The pain that death of a loved one brings can sometimes overwhelm us. Our loving God Jehovah knows how we feel and he provides comfort from his word the Bible. Psalm 34:18 says: Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit. Comfort also can be found in the words at Revelation 21:4; And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. May these scriptures bring comfort and calmness of heart to you at this time. Please accept our deepest sympathy.

My thoughts are with you Jay at this difficult time. What a wonderful boy he was and will live on through his book and helping other children fighting cancer. I was diagnosed last month with non-hodgkins lymphoma and just starting chemo injections. We all need to stand up to cancer on September 9th. I'm praying for all of us going through this illness and the survivors like you. God bless you

 

Sharon L Pace posted on 9/4/16

Jay, I along with most of WNC have followed you and your family via WLOS and Facebook. We have laughed with you, cried with you, shared your joys triumphs and heartbreaks, Now it is with deep sadness we have to say good-bye to one of God's little Angels. He says in his word, "Suffer me not but come unto me". Little Malachi has been thru enough and God has called him home to be with his Momma. Although we here are sad to see him go, it is just his little body that is gone. His spirit, the memories he left behind, the lives he touched will always be here for you to draw strength from in the coming days. God Bless you Jay. YOU YOURSELF have touched more lives than you will ever know and have given strength and encouragement to thousands.My condolences to you.

M J Jarmon posted on 9/3/16

Although I did not know Malachi personally, I was devastated to read of the untimely death of little Malachi, way too soon. Life seems so unfair to lose someone so young. I know the memories you made together in his 8 short years will get you through many lonely days ahead. May the Siltzer family look back with fondness and find comfort in your precious memories of Malachi and find a measure of peace in God's Word. Rev. 21: 4; tells us: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore."(Isaiah 25:8, Isaiah 33:24, Job 14: 14, 15) For more comforting scriptures please visit: http://bit.ly/1K38EFt. It has given me hope, strengthened my faith and helped me find the answer to Why? I know it will do the same for you. Again, I offer my sincere condolences to the family. Feel free to contact me at my email address: [email protected] I have a beautiful children's video that I feel you would appreciate during this time of grief. Please watch this beautiful children's video entitled "Keep Your Eyes on the Prize" https://tv.jw.org/#en/video/VODChildren/pub-pksn_24_VIDEO

I stood watching as the little ship sailed out to sea. The setting sun tinted its white sails with a golden light, and as it disappeared from view a voice at my side whispered, He is gone. But the sea was a narrow one and on the further shore a little band of friends had gathered to watch in happy expectation. Suddenly they caught sight of the tiny sail and at that very moment when my companion had whispered he is gone a glad shout went up in joyous welcome with the words Yeah! Here he comes!

 

Shelly, Andrew and Owen Smith posted on 9/1/16

Jay, I'm so sorry for your loss. Those words just don't seem to be enough. I keep thinking why did this have to happen? I know it had to be part of God's plan. You were destined to be Malachi's father. Through your personal experience you were the only one who could have given your son the strength and the courage to face this awful disease. Because you shared your life with Malachi, we will remember him. Each time, someone reads a story from, "The Book of Malachi", they will smile and remember a loving, precocious, wickedly funny little boy. You are in our thoughts and prayers. May God give you peace and comfort.

You are an example of a strong faith in the Lord and may your strength be renewed in the days ahead.

I can see the difference Malachi made in your life and also the gift he received to be adopted to such an incredible family as yours . I don't have the right words to share how I hurt for your hurt or how much you and Malachi and your wife's lives have meant to me, actually all of us. All I can say is my life is better for having been able to read your posts, hear your funny stories and get a glimpse of the love you have shared. You have given much and suffered much. I pray God's peace and healing for you in this time of loss and the days ahead.

I am so very sorry for your loss Jay and for the family as well. I did not know your son, or you much for that matter, but can relate to the loss of a child. There are no words, there is nothing anyone can do to make it better, and you will never get over it. However, your faith and your God will wrap you in His arms and carry you through out this new journey that you are embarking on. I am so very sorry and will include you in my prayers.....My son, Donnie, is welcoming your son into Heaven.....

Jay, My heart is heavy with your recent loss of your young son. You do not bear this burden alone. Your friends, family and friends that you have never met all share in your grief. Have peace in knowing that you were a great Dad for this fine young man. I have recently adopted a fine young man from foster care. I only hope that we can be as loving and devoted as you and your wife were with Malachi. The world was robbed of this boy's future but heaven indeed has received a good man in your son. --a viewer, Gina

To Jay, My heart broke this morning when I heard about Malachi's death. Prayers began immediately as I thought about our Heavenly Father, who also experienced the death of his Son, understanding your sorrow and pain. Please know that Richard and I care deeply for you and will continue to pray for His strength and guidance to you on a daily basis. We will miss the brightness of Malachi. We loved him, and we love you, Lorraine and Richard Jernigan, Woodstock, Ga.

What a wonderful and powerful God we serve. He used a little baby, born in an impoverished country to come here and be loved and cherished by loving parents and touch thousands of hearts. His book has inspired many to give and share for the betterment of others. Many of us live a long life without accomplishing what Malachi did in eight short years. I praise God for blessing us with the presence of Malachi..

"When a child is apart, even for a little while, a parent says a prayer. We ask the Lord to protect...to be where we cannot be...to go where we cannot go. In Him we place our trust, for He sees, He knows... Though how your heart must break, parted for now from your little one, know the Lord keeps Malachi safe, with Him, where we all belong. He will keep Malachi in a loving embrace, just as He keeps you. That is His answer to a parents prayer, that is His love- forever, everywhere. He's going home to see mommy.

I only learned about this...45 seconds ago...on News 13 @ 11. I was absolutely stunned!! Felt a shock go all the way back though me. Jay , I am so sorry!! There is no greater loss than the loss of a child. But Malachi did what God had put him on Earth to do. And that little guy was such an inspiration to others. Now, God needs his bright smile and awesome heart upstairs. Malachi closed his eyes here on Earth, then opened his eyes in a wondrous new home to begin his new life.

Jay, I am so sorry for your loss. Cancer is such a horrible disease that effects so many. Nothing can be more heart breaking than a sick child that we as parents are helpless to do anything about. My only child had five open-heart surgeries from age nine month to age eighteen. In 2002 she had a heart and double lung transplant at Cleveland Clinic. Thank God she is doing well now. My heart goes out to you Jay and I will be praying for you and your family.

Jay, I never met him, but always enjoyed every post that you put on FaceBook. He was obviously a very smart young man that left this world far too early. He was blessed to have two great parents during his short journey on this earth, and you should be a proud dad. I'm sure your heart is broken over this loss, but hopefully it helps for you to remember that he is no longer sick or in pain and with his mom in heaven! What a tragic life your family has endured with all of the illnesses, but you will see them again one day in heaven. RIP son!

The world lost a beautiful soul today. My deepest condolences to you and your family. Your posts about Malachi's antics put a many smiles on my face over the years. His Journey's Just Begun - Ellen Brenneman Don't think of him as gone away his journey's just begun, life holds so many facets this earth is only one. Just think of him as resting from the sorrows and the tears in a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days and years. Think how he must be wishing that we could know today how nothing but our sadness can really pass away. And think of him as living in the hearts of those he touched... for nothing loved is ever lost and he was loved so much.

I pray that your strong faith and God's grace will sustain you at this difficult time. My heart breaks for you, but at the same time, I rejoice that this precious little guy now has a healed body and is rejoicing in Heaven tonight. I will never forget a Saturday morning, maybe last year sometime, that I was in SteinMart in Hendersonville, and you and Malachi came in. You didn't stay long because Malachi was all over the place and I just got so much pleasure watching him and his super wonderful zest for life and a smile that could brighten the darkest day! Please take care of yourself and know that you will remain in my prayers and thoughts now and always. With my Heartfelt thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathy ~ Alton
