Re: This is my worst Thanksgiving..

{{{{{{{MANT}}}}}}} I am so sorry.
I know this is very little comfort but at least he didn't have to suffer. Who knows what bad things might have crossed his path later in life? He might have gotten cancer or been abducted or tortured in a war. At least he was spared those possibilities.

Does he leave family besides yourself? GF/wife, children? Is there anything we can do to help them? And - most importantly - is there anything we can do to give you a little comfort?

Re: This is my worst Thanksgiving..

My family had something similar happen about 10 years ago. It turned the holiday bittersweet. We set aside time to remember them (the good times) and still are thankful for what we have. I'm not saying that it will be easy or that you will have the same experience, but it has happened before to other people.

I'm sorry, MANT! Your family was in my thoughts for this Thanksgiving day. I hope you can find some comfort and peace eventually. My thoughts and well wishes are with you today and into the future. I hope you have people around you that can help keep his memory alive.

I have no words. As a parent of 22 and 20 year old boys this really hits home with me. Keep him in your mind and he will always be with you.

Oh no, that's awful. When I clicked on the thread I was not expecting the subject matter to be anything as bad as this. There are no words to adequately express how sorry I am for the loss you and your family and your son's friends have suffered. You have my sincerest condolences. Hopefully, given some time to process this, you'll be able to remember all the good times you have shared with your son around the holidays and will think of them in that light again. Best wishes to you and your family, and once again, I am deeply sorry for your loss.

My prayers are with you, MANT! As someone above said, please let us know what we can do to help you. Some of my closest friends are here on TrekBBS. They have stood by me through the loss of my dad and caring for Mom.

I had a sinking feeling when I opened this thread. Then it turned out to be even more horrible than I thought. MANT!, this is just horrible. You and your family will be in my thoughts.

Re: This is my worst Thanksgiving..

Oh geez. So sorry to hear about this. We are all here for you, Mant, you know that.

If it's OK with you let me quote a few verses (John 14:1-3):

Do not let your heart be troubled; trust in God, trust also in Me. In My Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and take you to be with Me, that you may also be where I am.
