Heartfelt Sympathy JRB

I noticed in another thread JRB mentioned his daughter passed away a couple of weeks ago. I thought a new thread was more appropriate out of respect.

I'm so sorry for your loss John. I know there are no words that could even help, no parent expects their child to go before them. If you need anything please let me know, you and your family are in my thoughts.
My thoughts are with you, very sorry for your loss John.

Heartfelt condolences from Heather and I.


Our deepest condolences on your loss.

I can't even begin to comprehend what this must be like. Know that your extended family, here on the grumble, has your family in their thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.

I'm very sorry for your loss. I lost my wife a year ago and that was hard, but to lose a child, that I think would be the worst. You are in my prayers.

JRB, I'm so incredibly sorry. Really. All I can do is say a prayer for you that your daughter is in heaven and that your pain will fade. Remember that your grief is a testament to the love you have for her. I am logging off right now to pray for you.
Our deepest sympathies go out to you John. Another star shines brightly in the night sky - it is her.

John, your loss is unfathomable to me. I hope there is some comfort in your grief, some sweet in the bitter. Blessings to you and your family.
John, I'm so sorry for your loss.
My thoughts are with you.

You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers during this time of great sorrow. As a father and grandfather, I can't imagine the pain of losing one so close to my heart.

God Bless!!
I felt my heart sink when reading of your loss. As others have said, I know I can't comprehend the depth of the emptiness you must be feeling. You and your family are in my thoughts, and I hope that with time the beauty and joy that she brought into your life will return as a blessed memory to displace the pain of loss.

God bless you and your family.

John, It's been 15 years this last April since I lost my daughter and granddaughter. It's not easy, **** it even civil. And I won't sit here and tell you the ache will ease, I'd be a lier.
My thoughts are with you. May your pain become a livable ache.

I keep coming back to this thread, trying not to cry, and trying to think of something supportive to say that hasn't already been said.

My kids are "smalls", 5 and 7 yrs., so I cannot fathom. I don't know who I would be on the other side of such a tragedy.

Deepest sympathies to you John. And, to the others on the G that we've discovered on this thread that have also been through such grief. So very sorry...
As a mom and grandmother, I can only imagine the pain you feel in your loss. Like the others who've posted before me, my heart goes out to you and your family in your loss and you are in my prayers. May God give you great comfort and strengthen you during the difficult days ahead.
Hi all.

I've been in contact with John, and he wants you all to know how much this means to him. Please be patient with him... He will probably read (the rest of) this thread later on... when he is able to see through the tears.

Thanks for showing what kind of people we REALLY are, here on the Grumble. One big family.

To all come peace and tranquillity>to some sooner than later but rest assured we all shall join them again!
I want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart. Her name was Denice, she was 33 years old.

I went through a divorce when they where toddlers. They where raised by their mother up in Colorado Springs. They really did not get a fair shot at life, the other two are struggling with their own demons, although my son seems to be getting it together, I hope so anyway.

I hardly ever saw them and I was surprised at my own reaction to her death. I guess once you become a parent you are bonded for life with them.

She was very beautiful and intelligent. She was a picture framer for a few years. Her and her husband had a ranch up in Oregon.

Anyway, thank you all for your kind thoughts and for bearing with me on responding to this thread.

God bless all of you,

Each of us feels the loss of a family member in our own personal and unique way. The awareness brings about a different perception on life each day, and a new sensitivity that only we notice within ourselves.

We can only glean a portion of the pain and sorry that each of our fellow human beings encounter when faced with similar situations, but together we can help pull each other back into the mainstream of our daily lives. In that path we recognize our obligation to care for each other.

My prayers are with you also.
