"Death is stronger than John and it's stronger than me, but it's not stronger than Jesus, who's the champion of heaven, who rose from the dead and defeated death" ... these are powerful words from Hal Barge, father of John, who battled mental illness for nine years, ultimately culminating in his death by suicide.   Today's episode picks up where we left off last week, with an honest discussion of mental illness and its impacts on a family, dealing with grief after the loss of a child to suicide, and a reminder of the hope we have in Jesus Christ, even after the unimaginable has happened.
