GRAMMY-winning CCM recording artist TobyMac took to social media a few days ago to share photos and a faith-filled message following a memorial service honoring his late son Truett Foster McKeehan. Truett was an aspiring independent rapper who released content online as Truett Foster, truDog, TRU and Shiloh. The 21-year-old tragically passed away unexpectedly on October 23, just days after his first live-show. See TobyMac’s full statement below:
As we enter this week of Thanksgiving we have something we’d like to share…
Such overwhelming love has surrounded us this last month. We still don’t quite know which end is up but we do KNOW, we are loved. As we mourn our firstborn son, God has poured out His love on us through people. He has loved us through you….your kind acts and words and prayers and thoughts and songs and poems and teachings and gifts and meals and time and expertise and travel have made death bearable.
You have been God’s light to us in our darkest days – A comfort to our broken hearts. We have experienced family at every layer and every turn. From the closest to those who have loved from a distance, thank you, thank you a thousand times over. We are grateful for your gentle and compassionate hearts. It is something we will never forget. Community as it should be…the body at its best. How God must be pleased!
