Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

Deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences. I always loved this poem and this may be the time to post it here.


Sympathy by Emily Bronte

There should be no despair for you
While nightly stars are burning;
While evening pours its silent dew,
And sunshine gilds the morning.
There should be no despair--though tears
May flow down like a river:
Are not the best beloved of years
Around your heart for ever?

They weep, you weep, it must be so;
Winds sigh as you are sighing,
And winter sheds its grief in snow
Where Autumn's leaves are lying:
Yet, these revive, and from their fate
Your fate cannot be parted:
Then, journey on, if not elate,
Still, NEVER broken-hearted.

Steve,

So sorry to hear of your loss. Take care of the boys and keep her memories alive. I can't even fathom how tough this is. My sincere condolences.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

My deepest, deepest condolences. I can't even imagine, nor do I want to, what you and your boys and family are going through. May your lovely wife rest in peace. And may you all soon find some peace in this horrible tragedy.

I can't imagine what you are going through. I have no real words that will mean much, so I will leave it to these words:

Unable are the loved to die. For love is immortality. ~Emily Dickinson

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

Smack, the thought of what you are going through has occupied the thoughts of many, and is truly heartbreaking. This is a wonderful community here, and they hold you and your sons, in their thoughts and prayers.
If there is anything we or anyone can do, do not hesitate to reach out and ask

Take care of you.
Hugs and caring thoughts

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

The story of your loss has occupied me all day; looking at the photo of your family on your boat, I can't even begin to imagine the depth of your sorrow. I am at a loss for words.

My sincere condolences to you and your family.
