Just wanted you to know that I believe there's a lot of us out here that are thinking about you & your "better" half and hoping you both brighter days ahead !

I second that.
Jay, I know it's been a tough deal for you and your family. Words can't express my feelings adequately. Just want you to know that Carol and I continue to think about you guys and hope and wish for peace for all of you.
Take good care.
Jay - Steve said it very well, I think. Many of us are thinking of you and your family and hoping for the best possible outcome from all of this. I can't imagine what it must be like to lose a child. I hope I never have to go through that.
Thanks! All the thoughts and prayers from this fine group of people have been very much appreciated by me and my wife. Its going to take us a while to wrap our minds around the fact that our son is with us now in spirit only.
You may be further along in the grieving process than you suspect, Jay. You said,
" Its going to take us a while to wrap our minds around the fact that our son is with us now in spirit only."
When I lost my Dad my initial sensation was that he was simply "gone" and I'd never see him again. It was a terrible, empty feeling.
It took years after losing him to realize that I am the embodiment of my father. His spirit lives on through me. If I have any skills at all it's because I inherited them from him, or was taught him. When I work on the T (it was his car first), I'm doing just what he would be doing if he were still with us. He truly does guide my hands. When I work on the T I feel a kinship, knowing that he once stood right where I'm standing, leaned over just as I'm doing, his back probably hurt just like mine does, and maybe he even uttered the same words out of the same frustrations.
After 30+ years I still miss him, but I feel a very real warmth and kinship in the realization that I'm the embodiment of his spirit and his aspirations.
We're all pulling for you, Jay.
You and your wife are in my thoughts and prayers, Jay.
Jay - Just letting you know that I think of your and your family often!
