Dear Larry,

The loss of a child
Leaves a question we never found the answer to

With all my heart I wish you and your family the strength to move forward
Please know that we are here when you need a shoulder to lean on

Warm hugs to you

Titia

I'm so glad that you posted this thread, Larry...
The poets on this website are the kindest and most caring people I have ever met.

I just don't know what to tell you...but I will be here if you need to talk about it.

As you, know....I have been through a similar tragedy and sometimes talking to someone who has been there, helps...as does having a shoulder to cry on.

I know that you can't do it right now because you are faced with the ugliest task in the world...making funeral arrangements for your own child...
but, dearest Larry, I do hope that you will come back to us soon...there is a lot of comfort waiting for you here.

How generous of you to donate her organs, and to think of others at such an awful time.

My prayers will always be with you.

~special big and sad hugs

Dear Larry - my sister Enchantress told me of your great loss when she telephoned me to-day. Words can never express how sorry I am for you and yours. Prayers are on wing.  Sincerely, Chris

To all of you collectively:
My heart can't write individually to you for it hurts too much. Thank you to each of you it means more than you can ever imagine.

Larry,

Words cannot begin to express the aching in my heart for you and your loved ones. I can't think of a greater agony in life than the loss of a child. Such tragedy is beyond comprehension. May it be some comfort to know that many are with you in your time of grief, my friend. I wish that I could take your pain away. My thoughts and prayers will be with you through these dark days.

Love,
Denise

Hello Larry

For once words fail me after hearing of this tragedy.  You are often in my thoughts and will continue to be more than ever now.  How wonderful that the memory of your daughter will live on and her priceless organs will give a new lease of life to others.  Her death was certainly not in vain and you must feel so proud that she has given these precious gifts to others.  I dediced many years ago to donate my organs and it makes me more determined than ever after reading of the selflessness of your daughter.  I am sure she will live on in your heart for more than one reason.

Take care my friend, I'll be thinking of you.

Love Sue

it would be false if i were to tell you i know how you feel. i don't. no-one can. but i know how i felt when my daughter died, and i cannot imagine a deeper pain. i empathize as far as i am able, my friend, and i wish you strength in this time of sorrow. may the Lord bless your efforts; may he lighten your load, ease your way, and guard your path.
be strong; remember the words of Marcus Aurelius:
quote:
Nothing happens to any man that he is not formed by nature to bear.

you will make it through this, and we will all be here for you. let us lift you up, even if only in spirit.

Larry, there are no words I can offer that will help take away the pain you and your family are feeling. I have a daughter this age and I cannot image what you must endure. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. By His grace and all of our prayers, I hope it will bring you strength. God bless you, Hugs, Marti

Thank you more than I am able to express at this time. It is unimagineable to me that I could gain so much strength and courage from this site.

This is a shock....you'll be in my prayers, Larry.

You look inside my wild mind
never knowing what you'll find
still I want you all the time
yeah I do
'cause you get me
