My sad story about Amy
This is a discussion on My sad story about Amy within the Bob & Terry's Place forums, part of the The Back Porch category; I am sure others have read this and not replied because they can't find the right words. I don't know how to express such sorrow ...

I am sure others have read this and not replied because they can't find the right words. I don't know how to express such sorrow over the loss of someone so young and full of promise. My wife and I will pray for the family. The good Lord is watching over Amy and I pray he watches over and assists her family and friends get through such loss.

I'll be praying for you and the family. The loss of any loved one is a difficult thing and the difficulty of losing a child so young has to be multiplied exponentially. May God's peace surround you and Amy's family and may God bless you and your wife for exemplifying the true definition of friend.

May the Lord strengthen the family and give them peace. May He strengthen you and your wife as you minister to the family and bless you for your concern.

I have been there. It is the hardest, most draining thing one can do.
In seminary, they impressed upon us that every funeral you do reminds you of your own mortality, and will tear a little piece of you away. I find that to be true.
So, take care of yourself and your wife. Get some away time. Talk if you need to. Cry when you need to. Laugh when you need to.
Above all, thank you for blessing these peoples' lives by caring about them and for them, and making a difference. They may not know it now, or be able to express it now, but sensitive, caring actions like yours really do help.
Bless you and your wife.

I've had to perform that job way tooooo many times .. and understand how difficult it is. "Compassion" is the key word. Sounds like you were a good choice to do the notifications.

Another sleepless night.........here I am. We're doing okay, I think the family is doing a bit better, they had a lot of company this evening, though they still have a lot of hurdles. We're committed to help them cope with their grief as much as we can, and we'll be there for them after all the company has left too.
After reading all of these responses, I can only say that collectively it is about the nicest thing I've ever read from a bunch of "gun guys" (well not all guys, but mostly).
Thanks for all of your responses, it's nice to get a boost while enduring difficult times.
God bless ya'll

Bless you for being with them, for transporting the grandparents, for being a quiet foundation for them to rest on in this most difficult time.
