Re: Smackdaddy Update

Steve, I cannot imagine what you are going through, nor anything I could possibly say help, or make it better... but know this, from my family to yours... our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Re: Smackdaddy Update

Don't know what to say other than I'm very sorry to hear about your loss.

Hang tough, Smack, you got this.

"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..."

I like that.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

My prayers and my tears to you and your boys. May God watch over you all. Perhaps there is some small consolation to know that so many here share in your grief.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

My deepest sympathies, Steve. Hang in there; I'm sure it will be tough, but hang in there. Let us all know if we can help somehow.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

Steve,

The future rarely turns out the way our mind's eye envisions it. Most of the time, the differences are inconsequential and we deal with them easily, without thinking about it. Sometimes though, those differences involve horrible, life altering events that remind us that we are not in complete control.

I believe strongly that all we really are as human beings is but a collection of all those who we have loved and who have loved us. Those souls are part of us forever and we part of them. Alicia will always be a huge part of the lives of your boys and you, and indeed all those she loved. And you and the boys will continue to be a huge part of her legacy. Through her love, your children will continue to be molded by her and the vision you and she share for their character will carry on.

Like everyone else here, I share a deep sorrow for you and your family for the unimaginable pain you are going through. I hope you won't mind when I give my loved ones a little extra hug in your honor.

Good luck and godspeed,
Doug

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

“When his wife was at his side, she was also in front of him, marking out the horizon of his life. Now the horizon is empty: the view has changed.”
― Milan Kundera, Encounter

A tragic loss for Steve and the boys.

Hopefully Steve you have the strength and support of family close by. It sounds lame but time WILL eventually help this scar heal a bit and the view ahead will change again. The view of the memories will always be cherished. Your co-skipper will always be in your heart.

Re: Smackdaddy Update

Smack... true love works miracles and is stronger than steel or time...
She is still your angel... have no doubt about it... she is there in this great sea of life and space, watching over you and your boys. She is in the wind, she is in the waves, she is in the light, and she is in the shadows. And above all, she is in your heart.
When you get a new boat, name it after her, place on it some personal things she loved, and she will be there always.
Salute to all my relations, good friend...

I am ever so sorry Steve.
