Oh I am so sorry. I am just new here so I don't know you properly but my heart goes out to you.

May God help you, Judy and your family though this time as I am sure your friends here will.

Nicolle and Mark

That's some terrible news. This board is so boat-centric that I forget sometimes that even for all of us crusty sailors the reality is true that families are way more important than a floating piece of fiberglass.

We'll put your family in our prayers tonight.

Gunner and Judy... a parent's worst nightmare...there are no words. If the empathy of yet another faceless forum member offers any comfort, please accept it.

Warm thoughts,
Geoff Safron

I offer my deepest sympathies and thoughts for you, Gunner and Judy.

I read your post about your boat and when you stated that your daughter was gone my heart sank. I then hoped you meant she had moved away...

I'm so so sorry for your loss....

Thank you. Please pray for us. It is now about 24 hours sense the crash. In 1 hour we will be making funeral arangments. Our hearts are breaking and it is hard to find anything to hold on to.

Gunner,

My heart just sank and my eyes are tearing as I write this. I am so sorry that this tragic accident has taken someone so dear to you. I just can't imagine losing a child and how I would deal with it. My thoughts are with both of you Gunner and Judy.

May the "Amanda Faye" sail on forever.
