Sorry to hear of your son - how sad for you.

There are no right words to say. I am very sorry and I offer my sincere condolences.

Yes, celebrate his life and try to remember the good things. I have no words, this is so sad. But I don't want to dwell on the sadness and I just hope you will be at peace with what has happened too.

I like the many others here am deeply sorry for your loss. It is a comfort that he will finally find some peace. It is saddest to those of us left behind and I pray you can celebrate his life and remember those moments that are the most happy and cherished.

BJW: It is always a shock to find out that someone has lost a child. I am so sorry that you and your family have gone through this. And I also am grateful your son is at peace. I hope your day is filled with memories of the positive and happy moments you shared with your son.

I simply can't imagine what losing a child is like and don't want to find out.

BJW I wish you and yours peace and comfort.
