Ah man. Hold your boys tight, as I am sure you are doing. There are resources that can assist all of you. Accept all that is offered and available. Don't be afraid to seek out someone to talk to.

Re: Smackdaddy Update

How utterly horrific.

I am so sorry for you and your children in this tragic circumstance.

There is so little one can say, but also a million words of encouragement. These horrid days for you and the boys can open up again. It's another challenge in life that the rest of us are fortunate not to have to take. But that doesn't mean that it can't be surmounted and life can be great again, albeit in a different way.

That wonderful photo of your wife with the wind in her hair and smile on her face is perhaps something that you can help your two young men once again achieve.

Steve,

There are no words! Time will help. You certainly have a huge, loving family here. We know you will find the strength. Condolences my friend.

Re: Smackdaddy Update

So sorry for your loss. There is no doubt that this is a horrible obstacle to face; but you and your boys will get through it together. Be strong for them, and also take strength from them in that they are an ever-present connection to your wife, and you have many more years to share with them.

Re: Smackdaddy Update

Smack,

I am at a total loss for words... I hope that you find some comfort in the sentiments of support that are recorded here. You have helped many of us, and we would like to be there for you in any way that we can.

Also, if you are in the RI area during the summer, please PM me. It would be an honor to take you and the boys for a BFS.

Thinking of you...

Re: Smackdaddy Update

So sorry for your great loss.

Irish Blessing Author Unknown

May you see God's light on the path ahead
When the road you walk is dark.
May you always hear,
Even in your hour of sorrow,
The gentle singing of the lark.
When times are hard may hardness
Never turn your heart to stone,
May you always remember
When the shadows fall-
You do not walk alone.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

Smack, I only know you from your posts here, and these posts show me a great human being. At times we all go through a period of great turmoil and suffering. That is just life. Eventually the sadness passes and we emerge richer in experience, and deeper in our thoughts.
Life is eternal and we never really part with those we truly love - they are in us, and around us, in so many ways - we just need the eyes to see that. And we will be together again eventually...
Salutations to all my relations... my prayers are with you, my friend...

Re: Smackdaddy Update

I said after reading Smack's blog post on the loss of his boat that it was the saddest blog post I had ever read. But it was nothing, nothing compared to his next post.

The BFS order that I placed shipped today. It was my small effort to help with the loss of his boat and a step toward getting the Ocean Boat Fund started. It feels like a trifling gesture now.

Hold fast, Steve. You have a great bunch of folks out here ready to help you any way they can.
