Music to Comfort the Grieving

Great is Thy Faithfulness is my favorite hymn of all time! We sang it at my son’s funeral and it continues to bless and comfort me.

Hold Me Jesus is my favorite of all of these because Rich Mullins died in a car crash just weeks before my son, Bart, died in a tragic car accident. Even before Bart’s death, his music inspired and comforted me…

“On September 19, 1997, Mullins and his friend Mitch McVicker were traveling southbound on I-39 north of Bloomington, Illinois, to a benefit concert at Wichita State University in Kansas, when they lost control of the Jeep. They were not wearing seat belts and were both ejected from the vehicle.[36] When a passing Semi-trailer truck swerved to miss the overturned Jeep, Mullins, who was too injured to move out of the path of the oncoming truck, was hit by the truck and instantly died at the scene.[37]McVicker was seriously injured but survived.”
