I have very few words tonight…
My oldest brother died yesterday….
Killed in a car crash….
My heart feels shattered….
Marcia has lost her husband, a man she fought for, adored, laughed with and loved….
Olivia (16), Noah (14), Sonta (13) and Jean Marc (9) have lost their adored Daddy…
My parents have lost their son, Aunt Dot has lost her nephew, we have lost a brother, the kids have lost an uncle who loved to tease them and make them laugh…

Amen to all your words. Never again will Len tease Johanna and she learn to laugh with him. Oh, the sadness of it all.
Janet and Peter, How our hearts ache for you in this terrible loss of your beloved son, Len. We are praying that you will receive grace to endure your sorrow. We love you and are wrapping our arms around you tightly.
Our hearts break with you and for you. You are in our prayers.
There are no words.
Prayers for you all…..
I’m very sorry to read this…. a father to 4, a husband … such a loss. Prayers for all of you….
Trish, I can’t even imagine what you and your family is going through right now. My heart aches for you.
Dear Trish, Betsy and I are praying for you. Grace and peace to you and your loved ones.
Your Dad Peter serves on the Executive Committee of the World Communion of Reformed Churches and in particular he is a member of the Communications Core Group that I moderate.So often Peter would introduce himself as being a proud father and grandfather as he so dearly loved all his children and grandchildren.
My prayers and thoughts are with the entire family as you grieve for and remember Leonard Hugh on the Christmas day. May the blessing and peace of the Christ Child be with you all and may Leonard’s soul rest in peace.

We fee so for your entire family. You will all be forever changed. I pray for you in the days, and even years ahead and all that you will have to process within yourselves. May God walk beside you on this journey.
With all those who love and treasure your family, we are carrying your grief in our hearts, and placing you before the throne of grace that God’s mercy and kindness may soothe your broken hearts. The loss of your brother and Peter and Janet’s son is terrible beyond words. May God hold each of you tenderly.
