Anna... I remember you from college, although we were not close friends (we were in different sororities but graduated the same year.) I had lost touch with you, and a mutual friend shared the sad news. I've spent some time reading thru your blog, and your love for your family shows in every anecdote, word, and photo. Your kids are blessed to have you for a mother, and I wish beyond measure that Jack's time on earth was longer. Thinking of you and praying for your family.

Kara said...

Although we have never met I have cried and prayed for you and your family since Friday. You beautiful boy will never be forgotten...there are just no words for your loss and the pain inside. Please know you are not alone. Praying for you always...

Lori @ In Pursuit of It All said...

Much love - as much as I have - to you and your family.

I can't, for one minute, imagine your pain. All I can offer are prayers and good thoughts. I'm sure that's not enough. I am so very sorry.

Sarah said...

Anna, I am so sorry. I have been praying for you and your family nonstop since I heard the tragic news. I have been reading your blog for a year now, admiring you and your family online, never having any idea that I live in your community, your town and attend the same church as you. You were just a blogger who I thought was hilarious and now you are someone I think about nonstop. Your entire community mourns for your loss, blue ribbons stretching across town in remembrance of your sweet perfect son. I am so sorry Anna, I know you have a long impossible road ahead of you and I hope you find some comfort in your friends and community, we are praying for you.

Anna,
My heart is broken for you. I read your Blog and feel like I know you and your beautiful family. I have stared at your son's photo and wept. I am in shock for you--with you. I don't know how but I know you will get through this. You are surrounded by love and support..including us online moms. I know we haven't met but if you need anything; if I can do anything for you..just write.
God Bless You,
Annie P.

Lisa said...

God the Father sent His only, beloved Son out of heaven to live the life of a man and die the excruciating death of a criminal. He knows your earth-shattering pain in the loss of your beloved son, and will send you the peace that passes all human understanding. Praise be to God that Jack is with his Lord, ready to reunite with you all "any minute now." I am so sorry that Jack's time with you was so short. You gave him the best gift any parents could give...life with Jesus (and you) forever.

Jenn A said...

I will send love and strength and healing thoughts that will not ease the pain but may help lighten the load. Know that this stranger is joining other strangers as well as friends in surrounding you with our love and heartfelt wishes that you may find some peace in the midst of this madness.

Wanda said...

Anna
Words seem so pathetic and meaningless. Nothing I can say feels good enough for what you're going through. As a mother, my heart physically hurts for you. I ache thinking that you're suffering because a part of you has been snatched away. As a follower of Christ, I trust that God our Father knows....He knows just how your heart is broken and will never be the same. I'm so very thankful that HE made a way for you and I to see our loved ones again. I'm praying for you and your family.....and I love your son's sweet verse. How right was he in
having the faith to know NOTHING is impossible! I pray that for you in your healing now...
BIG HUG!

Anna,

I'm so sorry for your loss. I have not lost a kid, so I can't say that I can understand what you are going through one bit. I can't.

I have, however, lost many pregnancies, and I found support in talking with other mothers going through similar things. That and allowing myself to grieve. That's the best I've got -- our situations are so different, I know, but that's the best I've got.

I hope you can find a support group who will love you with open arms and help you through life. I will be thinking of you.

Jen

Rebecca said...

We'll always be thinking and praying for you and your family, Anna. I'll always remember Jack's sweet spirit and smiling face. Love to you all.

Jen said...

In the faith i was raised in, we believe that if we loose a child before they are raised, that someday after this life we will be able to raise that child still, we will still be able to teach them to drive, watch them go on there first date and eventually git married. I truly believe this, and i hope it brings you some form of comfort in your lose.

CeCe said...

Anna,
I am a parent... although my only child is dead. She died 13 months ago..unlike your son, she was much older.... it doesn't matter...children are children and parents are parents. My heart aches for you. My heart aches for you. My heart aches for you. I have been where you are...every day after...I don't know if you have seen the movie, The Rabbit Hole...there is a line in the movie that describes exactly how I have found it to be..... It never goes ends but at some point it becomes bearable. It is like carrying around a brick in your pocket. You just get used to the weight but every now and then you reach in your pocket and you touch the brick and it comes out again. I paraprased the saying, but I have found it to be so true. My brick was heavy today and now I have just found out about your loss through Miss Mustard Seed's blog. I ... I KNOW...as ONLY a mother who has lost a child can KNOW. Love to you, CeCe

Michelle said...

So truly and deeply saddened for all of you. I am so sorry for your loss. Your family will be in my prayers. Your son was so handsome and so happy and full of life. May he rest in peace.

For Myself said...

May you find some comfort, somehow, in his memory. I'm so very, very sorry for your loss.

Leeann said...

I don't know you or your son. But I have a son who is 12, who is in 7th grade, and just like you, I was taking his picture just a few days ago. He also goes to a Christian school and we also had a lot of flooding during the same time period.

He is my heart, just as your son is for you.
And I am so terribly, terribly saddened for you and your family and all who loved Jack.
My heart, my prayers and my love go out to you and your family.

With tears,
Leeann

There are no words to express my deepest, deepest sympathies...I do not know you, but learned of your loss from a blog I follow (Momastery). Then I realized that you live only about a mile from where I grew up (off Lawyer's Road), and I also grew up in VPC....I am a mother of two, and I cannnot even imagine what you are going through. May God help you and your family find peace and comfort....

Mary said...

Dear Precious family,

I think of you as I sing the lyrics of a song that is near to my heart.

"Does Jesus care when I've said 'goodbye',
To the dearest on earth to me,
And my sad heart aches till it nearly breaks,
Is it aught to Him? Does He see?


Oh yes, He cares, I know He cares,
His heart is touched with my grief;
When the days are weary, the long nights dreary,
I know my Savior cares."

Praying continually for your strength, peace and healing.

Because HE cares,
Mary

Anna: just wanted you to know I've thought about you, Mollie and Tom and the surreal unfathomable tragedy that took your beautiful Jack from you for days now. I know your faith assures you of meeting up with him in heaven, but I hope his memory reminds you that he's still and will always be with you. I hope you find support groups when you need them and can, in time, treasure every moment you shared with Jack. He is already reminding the rest of us to love our children and savor all the good of them because this could have happened to any of us. Hug Molly from us all; I'm sure she needs them.

I am so deeply sorry for your loss. The loss of a child is something a parent should never have to endure. Lots of prayers for strength and peace to come your way.

I know you from afar: high school, VPC and the blog. I have always admired you. My heart aches for you and I have not stopped crying since the news. No words can provide the comfort you are looking for, yet I know you are in good hands with your family, friends, the church and God. Praying for you.

Oh Anna,

I am a daily ready and have been off the web for the past three days due to being violently ill. I saw this post and knew i missed something huge. I started freaking out because I couldn't believe it. Couldnt fathom it. I can't imagine how you feel.

I hope that Jesus wraps his loving arms around you and your family during this terrible time. With his strength, you will breathe again.

Sending all my prayers,

Megan

I saw your sons big smile from the picture posted all day and night and my heart wept for you. God Bless you, your son and your family...I will continue to pray for all of you.

My thoughts are with you and your family.

I wish that I had magic words that would take away your pain. The only thing that I can say is how very sorry I am for your loss and that I will hold your family up in prayer.

Hello Anna. I began reading your blog a week or two ago, starting from the very beginning. I am still in the first year and the news of your son has shocked me to my core. Here I was, reading of this lovely boy in posts from years prior, and I'm... I'm so very sorry for your great loss. I want you to know that my heart goes out to you and your family. I pray you find moments of comfort, even if brief.

My heart and eyes swell with emotion as I struggle to write anything to you that may do good. Just know that you are in the hearts and prayers of many. May our strength help bouy you in times when you do not have enough for yourself. much love.

Anna:

I am unable to think of anything else today, but what your family is enduring right now.

I think, hard, what can I say, that can help you in any way:

I think this: I've gone through all of your posts, with Jack: I can't think of a child who's had a better life.

You truly, you and your husband, truly, gave him everything that a child could hope for:

Love, guidance, faith, family time: you did.
I read it all: You did.

I am so sorry.
