It is with deep sadness that we must share that two of our students, Nate (8th) and Gabe (6th) Beckett’s mother, Melissa, has gone home to be with the Lord on Friday, June 9. Melissa Beckett died in her home of natural causes at a young age and leaves behind the two boys. Sadly, Nate and Gabe’s father, Danny, went home to be with the Lord not more than a year ago. Melissa and Danny both had a strong testimony for the Lord and the work that He had done in their lives and hearts. We are thankful that we know that they are with our Savior, enjoying the promises that He has made to those who have been reconciled to Him.
What can we do as a MCS family? The bible is clear that we, as the body of Christ, are designed to ease the burden of the individual members of the body (Gal. 6:2). MCS will be accepting donations on behalf of Nate and Gabe Beckett to give as one donation to the church/family who is caring for them. The family is asking for financial donations to help with the burden of the funeral expenses for Melissa. Funeral expenses were not planned, and at this time, there are no funds for the service. If you would like to contribute financially, please feel free to make a cash or check donation at the MCS main office. (All checks payable to the boys’ church: Stratford Heights) Also, the family is requesting food gift cards and gift cards for purchasing needed items for the boys’ and their new residence. Also, simple cards and expressions of support for the boys are welcome.
The MCS school office summer hours are Monday through Thursday 9am to Noon, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact MCS at (513) 423-4542.
Our deepest condolences go to the Beckett boys and their extended family.
