    What can my family say that will help you people in any way? You have lost your heart, how can you go on? You have been injured and are now in horrible pain . What can we say to help you???

    When I lost a loved one friends did not want to say anything. They thought if they did not bring it up. It would be better for me… Well it did not! I wanted people to talk to me about my sorry. I wanted to know people cared. I wanted to know they felt just a small amount of my pain.
    MY FAMILY WANTS YOU TO KNOW, WE CARE! WE FEEL SOME OF YOUR PAIN! ARE HEARTS ARE DAMAGED! OUR BELIEFS ARE SIDELINED! WE LOVE YOU…WE WILL NOT FORGET YOU.. LOVE, Bill, Cherie, Erica, Kelly, Kyler
