Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

Luanne,,,

I really don't know what to say at a time like this as there are no words that can take this hurt away.

But please know that we all are praying for you and your family.

I can remember when some of you have had a loss, and me not knowing what to say.

I can tell you that my entire family has been holding on to your every word.

Services will be on Wed. I will have an Internet memorial that I can let you know about as soon as I know.

Please pray for us. My sweet Joe is with the Lord, but we are left trying to cope.

All my love,

Luanne

Luanne:
I agree with all the others...I am without any words that could be said at this time.

We here on Cruisemates are with you and your family.

It is so tragic to loose a child, no matter their age.
Please accept my heart felt sorrow at this time.

Peace and prayers are with you and your family.

Dear Luanne,

As so many others have said, my thoughts and prayers are with you. While our messages cannot ever lessen your loss, I hope it helps to bring you some small measure of comfort knowing that so many people care.

My heartfelt sorrow is with you. I have fout boys of my own and cannot imagine your sorrow.
Are you in a state of mind yet to let everyone know what happened?

Please do not feel under any compulsion to answer this question. Just be aware that I for one feel so bad for you.
