May 18 at 4:45 p.m. my precious daughter Ginger Michelle died at the age of 28. She suffered massive bleeding in her brain from an aneurysm and then had a heart attack. It was too much. I flew to Seattle and spent over an hour with her last night in the hospital room where she died. The staff generously broke policy and did this in anticipation of my arrival.

I donated her corneas, heart valves and tissue for burn victims. Now I have the heart breaking task of arranging her funeral. I wrote six poems on the flight here and don't know when I'll get them posted.

Please pray for me and my family. I need your love and support in this devastating time.

one kiss of his mouth,
one touch of his hand
than an eternity without it.

Larry, I am so deeply sorry for yours and Nancy Lee's loss.  You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers at this very sad time.

Warm southern wind, blow softly here;

Good night, dear heart, good night, good night.

I wish to send you my sincerest condolences in the loss of your daughter.  There can be no greater tradegy than loosing your child and I hope you will lean on all of us here to give you strength through this sadness.  I know if she was anything like her wonderful Father, she will be a constant source of inspiration to you and also in your poetry Larry, and this will keep her memory alive.  I send all of you in the family my love, and should there be anything, anything at all that I may do to help, please let me know.

Larry, I have tears right now for this devastating tragedy. There are really no words to comfort for this kind of pain. My mother died of a brain aneurysm nearly 6 years ago and I still feel the loss greatly. I too, donated all possible organs, and they kept her on life support until I could get there. But, the loss of a mother, doesnt even compare to the loss of a child. Ill have to send you an e-mail a little later, as the tears are coming a little to strongly right now, for your loss and recalling my own. My deepest, deepest sympathies and prayers are with you and you family right now. This should never have to happen a parent should never have to say goodbye to a child like this. If there ever was the biggest cyber hugIm sending it to you right now.

Larry, a loss as devastating as this.... I cannot imagine. I am sooo sorry.  You and your family will be in our prayers.  May God comfort you and hold you in His loving arms and know that your daugher is right now with her Creator and at peace.


With our deepest sympathy,

Sherry and Wilfred Gardner

Cherish the good memories past and look forward to the adventure called Tomorrow.
But above all... be kind to yourself today.

Larry, I have no words....
My thoughts and prayers are with you and those you love,
if you need anything at all....even if just a ear to listen....
I am here dear sweet man.  
With warmest regard,
