So very sorry.  I hope you have someone to support you.

Tekwriter, I cannot imagine the pain you feel right now. You and your family are in my prayers.

Oh Tekwriter, I am so sorry.  There just are no words.  I hope you have family and/or friends there with you.  Sending you big hugs and prayers.

Tekwriter, No words. Hugs hugs.

I hope you have support near by, a shoulder, someone to bring you what you need (without asking you what you need), someone to see you through the worst of this now. So very sorry.

Tekwriter, I am so very sorry for your loss.  My heart hurts for you.  

Comment by Tess on November 4, 2019 at 10:46am

Tekwriter, I have no words that would be remotely adequate. Cry as long as you need to in your grief. I am sending hugs your way. I wish there was something more I could offer you.

My heart is bleeding for you! Do you have anyone who can be with you? 

If you need to talk, if you need to scream until you're hoarse, if I can do anything, please call me. 951-544-1176.

@Tekwriter....such horrific news!  I don't even know what to say.  "Sorry" doesn't even cover it.  It's more like a wish that I could turn back the clock and change what has happened.  Do you have a real-life support system? I am in NC too...where are you located?  I'm in Durham.  Please send me a PM if you are relatively nearby.

@ Tekwriter    OH NO, OH NO, OH NO!!!    I have no words.  Sending hugs.
