I regretfully have to post that Barbara & Dee Cannegieter lost their daughter Erika today. This is really a post for Pat to make since they are all longtime friends but I am guessing it may be too hard for her right now. I am at a loss for words but I know there are many on here that would want to know.

We lost our son 50 weeks ago, and I know first-hand how extremely difficult this is. He was 10 days from turning 40 and left 2 children.

I wish I had some words of advice, but honestly all I can say is "no words".

Barbara has my sincere sympathy.

I am so sorry for your loss because as a mother I just cannot imagine the pain a parent goes through when they lose a child. One can only pray that time will lessen the pain.

That is so very tragic. So sorry for them. Thank you for posting. I am not a parent, but lost my only brother at 62, and the pain never goes away ......

As a parent, I would agree, there are no words except perhaps that we are sorry - we really can not imagine your pain for it is unimaginable both in terms of depth and scope. Again, we are very sorry.

This is an accurate observation. It is unimaginable. In our case I think the only thing that would have been worse would be to die from an accident - I honestly don't understand how parents can deal with their child being killed by a drunk driver.

Barbara - sorry I can't give you a big hug, but I'm sending my hug wishes to you. I sort of wish I could look at this thread with dry eyes, but that is impossible.

Thanks for posting this, Sharon. So much respect for Barbara on this board, always, and to know how much loss her family is feeling right now, I am sure it is overwhelming. My thoughts and prayers go out to Barbara and Dee today. Charlie, I didn't know you had lost a son almost a year ago, a hug for you, too. Hope you live close to the grandkids.

Thanks Patty - we're 4 hours away from them and will see them this Sunday. They'll be in grades 5 & 7 this year.

I am fully aware that this thread is about Barbara's family tough situation, but I relate to it so strongly that I just wanted to say some stuff. I could write a book about the simply unreal stuff we experienced and dealt with, a good bit that could not happen unless you accept life after death.

By the way, my other 2 granddaughters live in Chester County, PA.

I can understand 100% that it might take Barbara a while to get back here online, but honestly I got a good feeling from some online stuff right after my son died from people I had no relationship to.

My heart has been aching for Barbara and Dee since I heard the news earlier. I can't imagine the pain they're enduring. I can only wish for Erika to be at peace and for the good Lord to comfort her parents and family. It's got to be an unimaginable pain......very sad.

Barbara and Dee,

This has been a years long painful struggle for all of you, and I don't know how you've managed to keep going with the strength and dignity you've shown. No parent could have done more or been more supportive while all the while dealing with your own personal pain and heartbreak.

Erika is with the angels now but she will always be a part of you and all the others who so dearly loved her.

We will continue to keep you in our hearts and prayers and beyond this, for once, I have no words.......

We send our love to both of you,

Pat and John Denley

Charlieh, So sorry for your loss. Barbara, Dee and family - HUGE HUGS, we know this time is just mind numbing, we walk through day by day. We lost our son in 2003, right after returning from SXM.4 of 5 young men in the car died - drunk driving accident. It gets easier to deal with, but the loss will always be there. We take him with us on all our adventures and remember the joy he brought.

My sincere condolences to Barbara and Dee, Charlieh and to anyone who has suffered this type of pain. I lost my daughter in 2006 and am now raising the little girl she died giving birth to as well as her three older sisters. The pain doesn't go away but the memories become happier.
