Dear Friends and Families of Saint Patrick School,
This morning we learned of the tragic death of Barrington Brinson, a member of our 7th grade class.
Speaking on behalf of the St. Patrick School community, I want to express our deep sadness over Barry’s death. Our Christian faith teaches us that our life on earth merely prepares us for an everlasting life with God who sent His son, Jesus, to obtain this for us. Of course, we are deeply troubled when a young man leaves our company far earlier than any of us expected.
Furthermore, we grieve for Barry’s parents and brother who must bear this loss and the suffering that comes from his departure. I ask you to pray for Barry and for his family, that they may receive the consolation that will come from trust in God our Father and his everlasting love for us all.
As we obtain additional information, we will make it available to the St Patrick School family.
