This group has been a help to many of us. Not just with our cars but when we've gone through some really tough times. Sometimes it is just nice to know that somebody cares and is thinking about you. And there are a lot those folks on here.
If you aren't familiar with the 5 stages of grief or if you want a quick review, one of the sites I like is:
http://www.way2hope.org/5_stages_of_grief_and_loss.htm a helpful review of the five stages of grief.
And in my own faith walk I’ve found the country song by Brad Paisley – “When I Get Where I’m Going” helped me to process my loss when my Dad and later my Mom passed away. It is located at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yYHT-TF4KO4 . And remember to “turn off the video at the end or at least hit replay” as sometimes the song that follows doesn’t fit in at all.

At times such as this, life seems so unfair. Losing a child is the most difficult thing a parent must go through. As Hap said above we are all family here and offer support, a shoulder to lean on or just to be a listening post. Do not hesitate to call to talk or vent, anyone here would be more than understanding and willing to help lighten your load.
So sad at your loss,
Our condolences to your family. So sorry to hear of your loss. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers
So very sorry.
Bob, We are so sorry to hear of your loss, continued prayers for you and your family.

May you see God’s light on the path ahead
When the road you walk is dark.
May you always hear,
Even in your hour of sorrow,
The gentle singing of the lark.
When times are hard may hardness
Never turn your heart to stone,
May you always remember
when the shadows fall –
You do not walk alone.
Thank you all he was 28 years old, I was told he was admitted to the hospital in Chicago on Friday with pneumonia , he has had some medical issues, asthma, some liver problems but for the most pretty healthy, Saturday I got a call from my ex wife stating they had to put him on a ventilator
and his liver and kidneys were shutting down. he was getting oxygen to his brain but not to his lungs, later that evening he suffered s seizure
and things were not looking good, Sunday he went to having cpr done and he never came through it, he loved old cars, fishing, camping, and a lot more, will post more later and thank you all, Bob & family
Sorry to hear this. I can't imagine how heartbroken you and your family are. Prayers go out to you and your family.
My thoughts are with you and family and friends at this sorrow. Just last week my wife lost her brother to complications ending with pneumonia so your lost now is heartfelt. May you gain strength in coming times of fond memories of his time on earth. All the best.
Thanks for the brief bio. As I get older, and more of my contemporaries
or friends of friends pass on with greater frequency, I find myself wanting
to know more about who they were and what their life was about.
28 is WAY too young to go, and it sounds like this was a real shock. I am
nauseated to think how this must leave you and your family, and words from
some boob like me on how I feel sorry will sound hollow and contrived.
I do hope you can find solace and gratitude for the good things that you
all shared together and not be overwhelmed in the loss. Life (and death)
are pretty random. After sending kids half my age home in boxes from
AFG, I try to never take each day for granted. We never know what the
next moment will bring.
Bob, you do good things for our T hobby. I wish you peace and smooth
sailing through this rocky patch.
Sorry to hear about the passing of your son. Our prayers are with you and your family.
Robert, sorry to hear of your and your family's loss .
As others have mentioned, it's not possible to find words that adequately express how sorry I am to learn of the untimely passing of your son.
I have two boys in their early thirties and can only imagine how heartbreaking this tragedy must be for you and your family.
I hope with the passage of time the pain and anguish will subside.
Please accept my sincere condolences.
Really sorry to hear this. I will pray for you and your family. May God ease your burden.
Am again offering my condolences. I had found a tattered newspaper clipping in my Mother's wallet following her death more than 20 years ago. She was two months short of her 91st birthday, and had endured her own share of medical suffering... Also to lose my oldest sister and brother before I was born. Our thoughts and prayers are the easy part. This is the clipping she had saved:
"Death isn't easy and death isn't fair,
especially when you love some someone.
Everyone who lives must sometime die,
I don't understand, don't ask me why.
You must realize, you're not losing the love,
it will travel from earth to high above.
Sometimes all you can do is reach out your hand,
and try to help others understand.
After awhile, the pain goes away,
but not the love - It's here to stay.
Try to accept that you won't see their face,
but their soul has gone to a much better place.
Facing death gives someone quite a scare,
you don't understand and the pain's more than you can bear.
There is a better place high above,
no one knows what it's like, but it's full of love.
Don't think of it as leaving earth,
it's not really death, it's like a new birth."
Bob, you have a large 'family' out here.
Bob..God bless and comfort you during this terrible loss. Again, my prayers go out to you.
I'm so very sorry. Please know of my prayers for you and your family.
Bob - I really have no words that seem appropriate; just know that your Son and you and your family are in my wife's and my thoughts and prayers. I can only say that we'll never know "why" in this life, and that you must keep in mind how your Son would wish you to feel and carry on,....harold
Nothing I can say that has not been said other than my own son is the same age right now and I am stunned and lost for words.
Thank you all, father died 2000
mother in 2009, lost brother in 2011, have not talked to sister since the fall out on the shop in 3 years, when does it get better, who knows but we will try and pray they are all in a better place now, we will be making arrangements tomorrow, Bob
Bob am very very sorry to hear about your loss my brother died 2 years ago and I had a hard time with that but I cant imagine the pain of loosing a son. May God be with you and your family thru this. Ron
Condolences from all of us. I know not what to say, but wish you kindness and thoughtfulness in this time.
Bob Sorry for your loss you and your family are in my prayers
My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours during this sad time.

Sad news to read.My condolences to the entire family.
Bob, With deepest sympathy on the loss of your son. Such sad news

Bob our condolences to you and your family, Mr. Sand said what we all feel. Jim
Bob I am so sorry to hear this, I can't imagine what your going through.
Called Bob and gave him lots of love and prayers. Bob is a living tribute to his father Bob Sr. who was a great asset to the hobby. Now there is no one to carry on the business. May God bless you, It is a great loss.
We am so sorry for the loss of your dear son.
We will hold you and your family in our prayers.
Our sincere condolences.

So very for you and your family. Will pray for all.
I've been away from the forum for awhile and just saw this. I am so very sorry that this has happened to you Bob. I have no words that can possibly ease your pain other than what has already been said. No one should have to lose a child. Dave
So sorry to hear this, prayers to your family Bob.
Bob, My thoughts are with you and your family. There are no words that can be said. A child should never leave before a parent.
Please accept our deepest condolences as well Bob.
