Re: CF Member has Suffered Great Loss

Words totally fail at a time like this.
We're with you as much as we can be.
The pain will ease.

Re: CF Member has Suffered Great Loss

Too chocked for words reading that, Steve. Stay strong. Your boys will need that.

Sorry for your loss. Always cherish that last sail with your wife. We all will never know when one will be our last.

Very sad for a dad and children, so very sorry man. Sounds like she knew she was loved. Hang tough, grieve, be patient, and the sun will rise again on your heavy heart.

I too am at a loss for words. Just give those two precious boys big hugs and hang on tight. I am so sorry for your loss, you are in my prayers.

Re: CF Member has Suffered Great Loss

Steve, the words in your blog 'stay the course we set' resonated with me. My twins were 12 when I lost Linda. Cancer, slow, you see it coming, but still hard. You always have the memories - they gave us all strength.

Now my girls are 20, and I often think they reason they turned out great is the work Linda did while I was away at work so much. I'm sure your friends and family will be there to help - often they just need a hint as to how they can help the most. I'm sure you will do well - you already made a great start by posting. Go well, give your boys the opportunities the both of you had planned - you need do no more than that.
Brian

Sh*t. In the blink of an eye there is a huge hole in your life. And no words can fill it. You are in our thoughts. We share your sorrow.
