View Full Version : We lost our daughter 4/1/13

04-03-2013, 03:36 AM
Smijen48 & I lost our daughter on the first. She will always be 17 and was beautiful, smart and a child of God. She lost control and hit another man head on in a bad curve. Both were dead on scene. Please pray for those left behind in both families.

Jenny (smijen48) and I are holding on and trying to be there for the rest of the kids and have faith we will make it out the other side thru this.

Your prayers are appreciated.

Sorry for your loss. I can not even imagine this.

Good morning Brother God is the only one I know who will heal that gap . Our joy is knowing this is not the end and we will all be together again one day before Him. I will pray God uses this so the many who know your daughter and your family will come to saving faith in the Lord Jesus.

Sorry for your loss.

We will pray for you. We lost our beautiful 21 year granddaughter in similar circumstance several years ago, also on April first. It was a very dark time. It does get better but there will always be a hole in your hearts and lives. We are able to fondly remember her and reminisce most days without the overwhelming sorrow, but April first and major holidays can be tough still.

prayers going up,

There have been many times in my life that I did not understand God's will in my life or the lives of others. We will only know when we see clearly, not now when we see dimly. Praying for both of you and the entire family.

04-03-2013, 12:44 PM
I cannot imagine your sorrow at this time. Embrace the the time you had together and know that God loves you all.

This is heart breaking, just don't know what to say except to take comfort in knowing she is home with God now.

I am a father, so that post takes my breath away with horror. Be certain, my prayers will be with you all in the coming days, weeks and months.

I know how it hurts. I lost my daughter 2 years ago suddenly also.

Someone once told me that the lord gets tired of seeing us old folks and SELECTS a SPECIAL young one to share his home with.

I miss my daughter all ways but particularly on VETERANS DAY. "Dad when we were growing up you always said your birthdays and holidays did not count. I do not want or need any presents just you".

So on vets day she would always come by and say HAPPY VETS day.

Just try to remember her smile and the little things that made both of you smile.

04-03-2013, 07:34 PM
May you find comfort in the creator in who's arms she now shelters. No words from man can ease your pain and for this I am sorry. May you find the strength to carry on and to share with those who feel they can't. Help is only a few words away, do not be afraid to seek it. You and yours are in our thoughts.

I am so very sorry for your loss,I cannot imagine

04-03-2013, 07:49 PM
It is said that, while "Joy shared is joy MULTIPLIED", so also is said that "Sorrow shared is sorrow DIVIDED".

We all grieve over your loss, and pray for God's healing and comforting hand to be on you and your family in this trying time. Your daughter is in the very best of all possible hands (the song "Safe in the Arms of Jesus" comes to mind), and is almost certainly grieving herself for having been (temporarily) deprived of your company.

God Bless You All,

I cannot fathom loosing a dear child...but, as has been said, she's in God's care now. May she forever be in your memories. Prayers go out for you, your family and the other one killed. May the good Lord shine his countenance down upon you and keep you. You will be in my daily prayers. BC

I can't imagine the pain your family must be in, but it is good to hear that she had a personal relationship with her Creator. May God bless and keep your family.

My heart aches for you, dear brother. We rejoice that your precious one is safe in the Savior's arms. We mourn her loss with you and will be in prayer.

We want to thank you for the thoughts and prayers. I have been stopping in every once in a while to read the comments above. They bring some comfort knowing that people we do not know are praying for us. We are muddling thru this as best we can. My sister summed it up well, "Katy still matters."

"Katy still matters"

And will always matter.

A loss to one of our family is a loss to all of the family.

08-13-2013, 11:01 AM
I do feel your pain. My wife and I lost our 4th child, 28 years young, in October 2008. Almost 5 years. The hurt doesn't go away. We also have 4 other children and 4 grandkids to help with easing the loss. I am heartily sorry for you and your wife.

08-14-2013, 12:26 AM
dantoweed64, I am very sorry for your loss also.
My sincere condolences.

08-17-2013, 10:39 AM
I'm so sorry for your loss, I will be praying.

08-21-2013, 08:18 PM
My granddaughter who has always been with us turns 16 next month. She has been practicing with her learner's permit fo a while now, but I can't help but worry every time she drives. So precious our children, so tragic when something like this happens. I hope that you have been blessed by all those here who have suffered alongside you and your family. Count me in on the prayers.


09-07-2013, 09:22 AM
In 4 years our oldest can start driving with a permit. I'm starting to realize how our parents must have felt when they saw us drive away those first times. To have to see those fears come true, please take a moment knowing our prayers for healing and peace.

11-20-2013, 08:07 PM
Father bless this family,touch their hearts an give them unity within the family. Holy Ghost move in their homes an fill them with joy,peace,an love. Let your grace an mercy from Jesus Christ find them on them days that just don't make sense anymore, we ask these things in the name of Jesus Amen

11-21-2013, 07:12 AM
Really sorry about your loss. God be with you and your Wife and take care of yourselves.


12-10-2013, 08:10 PM
Yall have no idea how much you words and prayers have helped me. Knowing there are people that care is a great comfort. We have CHRISTmas,new years, valentines day and Easter. Thenthe FIRST holidays will be done.

12-12-2013, 06:17 AM
Good morning

Reading this post again and thinking of what to say, God Bless !!! Hope he son the Comforter is helping you cope, Just ask Jesus , if you must cry in privet to help you, he will help. Wish I could do or say more !!! Theodore

12-18-2013, 09:21 PM

Having read this late I can not fathom the death of a child, but the salvation of one to the Lord. CHRISTmas time, and it being the first without her, will seem like a hollowness where there was once love in your heart. I am speaking this only due to my prodigal child and the hollowness I feel this year. I pray the Lord's peace and grace to you and your family. I hope that healing provides the peace and comfort that you and yours are needing. God bless you all and Merry CHRISTmas.

12-21-2013, 10:01 AM
The Lord works his ways at His pace. A young man in our unit just lost his daughter at thanksgiving. The Lord has equipped me to help him. To those here that have lost a child or have prodigal children. Keep the faith that God is on His throne. Mwrry CHRISTmas.
