Sorry to hear this news! Your family will be in all thoughts and prayers! I think Alan (MH81) said the most for you to think about! It's not her fault!

So sorry to hear this. I will be praying for comfort for you & your family. This will be hard but you & your wife are to take no blame but to be there for each other in your time of grief. So many things we don't understand but someday we will. God Bless.

I read this hours ago and had no words.  I came back to try.  I want you to know that you and your family are in my prayers today and I find comfort knowing you have the faith that you have, and you know where your comfort comes from.

God Bless you and yout wife.

Chad, I'm so sorry to hear about your loss.  There are things in life that happen and we, as mortal humans, can't explain.  This is one of those times.  It is hard to express the sorrow in times like this and I feel that women take it especially hard since they form a bond early on so give her that extra hug, embrace,  and love her even more.  You and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers.

There has been a lot of good stuff said already. Wildbill makes are really good point, your wife has been bonding with him for the last 9 months so be there for her first.


Having our third due on November 3rd, this news really hits me hard. Knot in the throat and watery eyes type of stuff. I'm glad to see you finding solace in your faith... as said, it can move mountains.

Thank you EVERYONE!  I cannot express enough how blessed we are to have soooooo many people praying for us and thinking about us.  I don't want to single any one post out as they are ALL meanigful.  For those of you who are not sure of the words to say, just knowing that you are thinking about us is more than enough.  I and my wife have made posts to our Facebook accounts and I made a post on another forum I frequent and the sympathy from people is beyond beilef.  SO many out here in cyberspace that I only know as a screen name have showed such great and vast support for a total stranger that words fail me to thank everyone in the waythey should be. 


We arrived home about an hour ago and have to make arrangements with the funeral director this afternoon.  We live about 300 feet from the town cemetary and we are going to place him to rest there so that we can visit him as we need.


Thank you all for keeping the faith, I have NO DOUBT my little boy is in the arms of The Lord.  I keep that close to remind me that one day, sooner than I think I will meet him again and live with him forever.


Thank you all again

Having been in your shoes my heart goes out to you. Our little boy is also safe in the arms of Jesus. We hope and pray that God gives you strength and your faith and friends will help carry you through this.

Best wishes.

So very sorry for your loss. As others have said, there are so many things in this life that we will never understand, we just have to hold each other close and live through it. Tomorrow does come and we survive and become stronger.
