Losing a Loved One is Never Easy

20 April 2009 12 Comments

My nephew Philip and his wife Beth had two beautiful twin girls almost 3 months ago.  Today, they lost one of their baby girls who died unexpectedly.  Her name was Reagan.  I can not begin to express how I hurt for them... Philip is more than just my nephew, he's like my little brother, heck as far as I'm concerned he is my little brother.  Seeing the hurt on his and his wife's face, as well as the rest of my family... well to be honest I can't even express how it makes me feel.

I'd like to ask any of you that visit this blog to say a prayer and send some thoughts their way.  They definitely have some tough days ahead of them.  They also have a 4 year old son named Luke.  Reagan is on the right in the picture below....

    Prayed for them man, that’s ruff, I don’t know what else to say but pray for them that they get the support, comfort, and love they’ll need to make it through this riff situation now and forever.

    Jake / Jeff –

    I’m very sorry for all the grieving your entire family has ahead, and you are all in my thoughts and prayers, friend.

    I simply cannot stomach the thought of losing a child.

    Hi Jake,

    Sorry to hear that Jake. You surely have my prayers for the Baby and the family. I cannot even imagine the pain, but I am sure with all the prayers God will comfort them.

    Anything you need Jake, let me know.

    As with other commentators, I am terribly sorry to hear about this.

    My heart goes out to Philip and Beth. I have just said a short prayer for them and they will continue to be in my prayers as they go about a terribly difficult time, particularly in the near-term future.

    Two years ago, my neighbors had a stillborn child. I will never forget the shock, horror and disbelief on their faces that day. Losing a child must be just plain awful and I cannot begin to imagine the pain which Philip and Beth must be feeling right now.
