Words in a blogpost don’t come anywhere close to approaching the pain the Chapman family will likely be experiencing for some time as a result of their tragedy. Mathematically and logically they just don’t compare when considering the recent devastation in Myanmar and China in relation to the Chapman’s situation. But, because of the personal connection that I have to Chapman’s music over time (e.g., ”I Will Be Here” was our wedding song and “Cinderella” a song that is now eternally linked to my daughter), it weighs heavily. My family will continue to pray for them.
“Just hours before this close knit family was celebrating the engagement of the oldest daughter Emily Chapman, and were just hours away from a graduation party marking Caleb Chapman’s completion of high school. Now, they are preparing to bury a child who blew out 5 candles on a birthday cake less than 10 days ago…” [Jim Houser, Chapman’s Manager]
