Beyond the door there's peace I'm sure, and I know there'll be no more tears in heaven

Today we heard that one of the Chrissy's extended group died last night in an accident.
He was an only child and truly beloved of his family.
When we went to our last church, I often used to see his mum
and it was clear he was the apple of her eye.

He was an inspiration to others, a youth leader
a boy full of promise and kindness.

Tonight many many hearts in this city are broken
and many tears being shed.

It's amazing how one lad lived a life so full in such a short time
that touches so many.

Judah you will be truly missed.
Thank you for inspiring your generation.

Beyond the door there's peace I'm sure 
 And I know there'll be no more tears in heaven
