Devestating news

I shall be away from the blog world for a while as we have had some devestating news. Our son died suddenly from a massive heart attack last Sunday the 20th July. He leaves a wife, two young children and us.

For now I have no words only emptiness and pain. We are getting through each day as best we can but it is very hard

When I am able to I will write about him as he was a wonderful son but for now I cannot bear it.

So very sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you and your family.

Stray said...

We're thinking of you and yours, and will be here when the words do come.

Big hugs from all of us,

Stray, Ms M and Badger

(and Ruby and Wallaby-cat, who are blissfully unaware of mortality but are intuitively wonderful with me when I am sad).

How awful. What a terrible, terrible shock. And the knowledge that he didn't suffer is such cold consolation. I think the death of a child, whatever their age, is the hardest death of all for people in the developed world to come to terms with. For us, now, it is against the natural order of things, which makes it so much harder to bear, whatever your beliefs about religion, afterlife etc. I hope you can all find comfort in each other, and I hope you will be able to ease a little of your pain through writing when you're ready. As Stray says, we'll be here. (((((hugs)))))

For once, I'm at a loss for words, as I'm sure are all of the Novel Racers and friends. There are none suitable. Words will not heal this terrible wound. Nothing can, except perhaps time and the support of your family.
My sympathies and condolences.

Sheepish, I've not been over here before, but I'm on the novel racers waiting list.

I'm so so sorry to hear of your loss. It's just wrong for a child to die, grown up or not. My thoughts are with you and your family.
