(The Christian Post) Kay Warren recently took to social media to send a happy birthday message to her youngest son Matthew, who committed suicide back in 2013 following a lifelong battle with mental illness.
Warren posted the message to her Facebook page on July 18, which would have been his 35th birthday, wishing him a “Happy Birthday in Heaven” and adding that “I’ll see you in a little while.”
“Not all of those days were good; many were filled with pain and suffering – yours and ours. Yet your birthday reminds me of the goodness of God in this life,” she wrote.
“It was good that I was chosen to conceive you, carry you, birth you, nourish you, and nurture you. It was good that you had a daddy, sister and brother who embraced you and were willing to be fierce and loving bulwarks against the darkness of mental illness.”
