I don't know how to tell you guys this but here goes. Our boy Ryan (Outcast) had a son that was 12 at the time Ryan passed away and you guys raised a bunch of money for Sage to go to school.
Well Last night Sages mom called us and give us some really bad new. Yesterday Sage took his own life. I thought I would let you guys know about it. Linda and myself don't know how to take this.
I would really like you to tell the people that behind all the work they did to make us feel at home.

I am so sorry, I can not imagine the hurt this brings your family. In your own time could you tell us more about Sage? Who he became, what he was like. Thoughts and prayers you and yours.

I can't adequately describe how shocked and saddened I am to hear this.
My most sincere condolences, prayers being lifted up for peace in a time of pain and confusion.

I just returned from watching an amazing sunrise over Mosquito Lagoon from the dock. The news of Sage's passing is a shock to the conscious. I'll surely hug my own son tighter this morning.
Rather than focus on the profound sadness of the news, I choose to see it as the end of what must have been a deep pain Sage was carrying for so many years. I hope that he and Ryan are together again, laughing and smiling as they wander through eternity together.
Our family sends heartfelt condolences to yours, hang in there; tough times indeed.

Ollie and Linda....
My heart breaks for you and all of Sage's family and friends. If there is any way I can be of service please let me know. If I may offer this prayer
God of us all, we thank you for Christ's grace,
through which we pray to you in this dark hour.
A life we love has been torn from us.
Expectations the years once held have vanished.
The mystery of death has stricken us.
O God, you know the lives we live and the deaths we die—
woven so strangely of purpose and of chance,
of reason and of the irrational,
of strength and of frailty, of happiness and of pain.
Into your hands we commend the soul of Sage.
No mortal life you have made is without eternal meaning.
No earthly fate is beyond your redeeming.
Through your grace that can do far more than we can think or imagine,
Fulfill in this young man your purpose that reaches beyond time and death.
Lead him from strength to strength,
and fit him for love and service in your kingdom.
Almighty God, in your keeping there is shelter from the storm,
and in your mercy there is comfort for the sorrows of life.
Hear now our prayer for those who mourn and are heavy laden.
Give to them strength to bear this grief with grace and peace.
Lighten their darkness with your love.
Enable them to see beyond the things of this mortal world
the promise of the eternal.
Help them to know that your care enfolds all your people,
that you are our refuge and strength,
For all that Sage has given us to make us what we are,
for that of him which lives and grows in each of us,
and for his life that in your love will never end,
we give you thanks.
As now we offer him back into your arms,
comfort us in our loneliness,
strengthen us in our weakness,
and give us courage to face the future unafraid.
Draw those of us who remain in this life closer to one another,
make us faithful to serve one another,
and give us to know that peace and joy which is eternal life;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Grace and tears
