A Dying Orphan Alive Forevermore

Orphaned at nine in a hospital while battling Ewing's Sarcoma. Adopted by a family whose daughter was often on the same unit battling a similar cancer. Adopted by God through the loving witness of his adoptive parents. Brought Home to His Father on Sept. 7, 2011. Prepare to weep for sorrow, and joy, and the beauty of God's grace that is stronger than our sin and stronger than death.

You can also read or listen to the message John Piper preached at Victor's funeral service. It's very powerful and very instructive for learning how to deal with the fear of death by the power of the cross.
