gracious last words

I listened to the memorial service for Ben Larson online today. There were many stories told of a life lived fully and well. They said that when the building collapsed, Renee and Ben's cousin were on the other side of a theatre room from Ben on the forth floor. They were able to kick a wall out to escape, and then could hear Ben singing hymns for a while with his final words spoken, "God's peace to us, we pray."

I found an article that gives more details from his Uncle. It's just hard to comprehend. This one story has me so heartbroken, and unable to fathom that this is just one of over 100,000 stories of lives lost in that earthquake.
