    My 18 yr old son Ben was killed in a car accident at 14:42 on 28/11/03. Just wanted to say in cyberspace that his mum and I love him, miss him and know he is here somehow with us in our hearts and souls. He leaves behind a 20 month old sister Merete who I know he is looking out for. watch over her my darling boy.

    Peace on earth and goodwill to all men.

    Dear Chris,

    I feel so very sorry for you about this tragic loss.
    Losing your child is the most terrible and tragic thing that can happen.
    And now here is Christmas, the first Christmas without Ben.
    But Ben is still here, in the hearts and thoughts of you and his mum and little Merete.
    We all share the pain with you Chris.
    We think of Ben.

    May you rest in peace Ben.

    In rememberance of Ben,
    Wishing you, Chris, and your family all the strenght needed,

    Jan (FanJ).

    Dear Chris,

    I am very sorry for your loss. It is terrible to lose someone you love but through the terrible loss we should try to remember that though our time here and the time of those we love is limited and unknown, surely the grace and power and fruitfulness of the love we had been able to share is measureless. If we hold more closely to this, the pain of loss begins to slip away, leaving fond memories and a sense of thanks.

    Our prayers are with you and your family this season.

    Warm regards,

    Dan

    ChrisP, my deep condoleances with this loss.
    Even though you don't see him, he is so close around, in your heart and of all the family, in your memories, in all the good works you see he created in this so short time.
    The forum family is with you.

    The others said it quite well before this, but I must admit that I cannot even imagine what it must be like for you and your family. My prayers will be with you all for the strength you need.

    Chris,

    I've no words to express my condoleances. I do wish you and your wife/family all the strength needed to live through this terrible phase in life. It's by no means a consolation ( what can be?) but my heart goes to you. Personally, I wouldn't know how to cope with this happening to me/my son. Crying and shouting my heart out for sure.

    It's hard to accept life as it goes in this context; a useless loss of a beloved one. My heart bleeds - please take good care.

    regards.

    paul

    Dear Chris (and family),

    May all the strength and courage be with you and your family. Somehow, try to find a way to get yourselves through this terrible tragedy. Be open about it, don't lock yourselves up. Use every method or way that you think might help you guys moving on, to soften the pain, for as far that's possible.

    All the blesses that possible exist go out to you and your family now

    Take care

    regards,

    Sven Moons.

    Life and Death and Loss

    Life is a process.
    So too is death.
    Your son may send a message to you.
    It's not over yet!

    Call to him and ask how it's going?
    Let him know that you love him.
    That you have no regrets.
    He may let you know
    Somehow loss is not theft.

    Time will help heal.
    And know that someday
    You will meet him again
    In the undiscovered country!


    Best wishes to you and your family from Larry
