Smack, or now as I have learned, Steve.
I'm so sorry for your loss. It's amazing to see how many people, like me, you have touched with your energy and zest for life.
I bought my sailboat last summer and I've been trying to have a day on the water that would be worthy of a BFS posting. I still have the thread bookmarked.

Even though we never met I will be thinking of you when I am out challenging myself on the water in some BFS gear.

So sorry that you now have much bigger challenges than burying the rails.

Mark

BTW - if you are ever in Halifax Nova Scotia I'd love to have you out for a sail.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

Smackdaddy,

I am very sorry to hear of your loss. I know it may feel overwhelming at this point but let me offer two things.

One, that time being an artificial illusion (see Einstein and the Bible) your wife is just as alive as she ever was. She is now in a new reality. You were allowed to share some experiences with her that changed your life. When you see her again, there will be no marriage. The incredible love and bond you shared will be universal. Thatís why Jesus declared there is no marriage in Heaven.

Second, my great-grandfather came from a very successful family. He was trained at the University and his brother was the first Dean of a wonderful highly regarded college. My great-grandfatherís wife died. My grandfather dropped out of school in the eighth grade and worked as a house painter. A far different life than might have been expected. But his father reacted rather poorly to his wifeís premature death.

I have enjoyed your posts and will pray that your reaction to this change of tides might make life richer.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

Steve, over the past years I have enjoyed your posting here and was shocked and saddened with your tragic news. While it can be hard to even breathe,I hope over time you will find more strength than you ever knew you could muster. It is what sustains us when we have crushing loss and helps us to function or at least exist until we can find a new level of existence.

Focus on your boys and please don't ignore yourself. Your Sailnet friends are sincere in their prayers, condolences and good wishes. Should you find any reason to visit the Chesapeake Bay, we would be honored to take you and your family out for a sail.

Sending prayers for you and your boys.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

Smack,
I just can't say anything. It is just too ghastly.
The photo you put up on BFS says it all. You have the tiller hard up with the rail close to burried and there she is, beautiful smiling, truly enjoying your life together.
Hold that vision and give it to your sons.
John

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

There are certainly no words that can make things "ok" - but FWIW, I really feel your loss. Life is precious, fragile, and every moment counts. I hope you can take solace in the good time you had together. May you and your children hold on to good memories.
