From DH and me *JULY2007*

Thank you so much for the support and the candles. It has touched us both. Skyler is handling things quite well.

Reed was such a light in everyone's life and we are blessed to have been able to share his life even for a short time.

We've been swamped by media on and off today, but there is actually one particularly tastefully done. CBC also did a nice job though I don't have the link.

Sarah, I'm from the Apr 07 board, but I briefly shared the May 09 board with you and that's where I read Diane's post. I'm so terribly, terribly sorry for your loss. I live in Calgary and did not know you lived in Edmonton, but I saw Reed's story on Global news tonight and I just couldn't believe it. I saw the picture of your beautiful baby that your DH put up, along with his teddy bear. I just, I don't know what to say. No words come into my mind right now. I'm so sorry.

As others have said, we all love you all very much and if there is anything we can do let us know! I really can't seem to find the words for what I want to say, but please take care of yourselves. Reed was such a beautiful, smart, vibrant boy. I love the ways you and your family speak of him, it radiates the love you have for him.

:bigarmhug:

ETA: The memorial is beautiful. Such a wonderful idea.

There still aren't words to describe how much I feel for you and your loss. I am just glad we were able to come by and offer some support in person. More hugs!!

It does also make me feel better to know you have so much support helping out at home right now, too.

Thank you Sarah for taking the time to touch base with us. We are praying for you and are here for you. I will miss Reed, but I will always remember the beautiful pictures that you and gardenbug shared with us. I will especially remember one that stood out, of Reed in overalls sitting on the front of a car/truck with the hood open and I think he had tools. *love and hugs to you all*

That was my favorite picture of Reed too. Thank you Sarah, for sharing your family with us. And for stopping in your pain and grief to post here, letting us know that you are doing ok. You are such a strong woman and I am so sorry that you are having to go through this. I wish that there was something that I could do for you, but being so far away I feel all I can do is pray, which I have been doing almost nonstop for all of you. You all have such tough days ahead of you, please feel free to come here and allow all of us to help you through. Even if all you need is a place to come and cry or vent or whatever.

We will always remember Reed - and if you need to remember special times aloud (as aloud as you can get here), please know that we would love to share those times with you.

Big hugs and prayers to you!!

Jill

I have also been thinking about all of the beautiful pictures that you and your mom would post of Reed. My favorite and the one I keep seeing in my mind is the one of him digging into the bag of marshmallows on your camping trip!
I still cannot find the right words to express how truly saddened I am by your loss and just want you to know that I will keep all of you in my prayers.
