    Our Lauren

    It's been almost two weeks since our Lauren was killed by a truck driver in Illinois. She was a 24 year old RN in Neurosurgical ICU. She spent most of her life brightening peoples days. How does a parent deal with this?

    It's impossible to advise nannyhammer , My heart goes out to brother . Rely on GOD , depend on him . Talk to him often , pray with your wife and family , request council with your pastor/priest . Don't let it lay and smolder , talk to those you trust and love . Give it time brother , please give it time . Lauren is home now , take care of yourself and family .

    GOD knows your pain . Many here will pray for you and yours . PM me if I can help and there are others that will respond also . I am praying for you .

    Words cannot express simpathy in your loss. God and Church is the answer, pastor, friends and the congreation as a whole will help you. God is the Great Physician.

    David, I searched the news articles and read the obituary. Lauren seems to have been a bright, wonderful & well accomplished person. A tragic loss at such a young age.. I've been involved in many tragedies, you never get over them completely. As I was writing this I was notified of another tragedy, family friends high school son took his life last night. Unfortunately we must continue on and support our family and friends, never forgetting the loved ones we've lost. Our hearts are heavy for Lauren and your family, The Knaus Family

    I am so sorry. A parent should never have to outlive their child. I have no words that can help in a time like this but we will pray for your family.

    Prayers are sent.
    Jesus in telling his disciples that he would soon be crucified,told them that he would be sending The Comforter. "The" tells me there is only one, so comfort must come from the Holy Spirit that came on the day of Penecost.
    The Bible also says that death has a sting. Time will help but the sting never leaves completely. When things are unbearable,pray and read God's Word and ask for comfort.

    nannyhammer there is nothing that we can say will make you feel any better brother but you can be assured that we are there for you and your family brother. The question is always why but there are no human answers. With time you and your family will heal but my prayers do go out for you all.

    Father, Please bring comfort and understanding to nannyhammer and his family. No parent wants to lose a child but for some reason You have called her home. Please walk with them and help them to dwell on the good times they shared together and not fixate over what has happened. Father, only time and You can heal the chasm that was left with their daughter's passing and I pray that You walk with them and show them the grace and healing that they desperately need at this time in their lives. AMEN

    There are no magic words to say or things to do that will make it better. In time all of your thoughts of Lauren will be of her bright, loving sunny side. I'll pray for you that the time between now and then passes quickly.

    I can't imagine losing a child. My youngest son was in a wreck in S.C. last week, I had to make a whielwind trip there to pick him up. Totaled the car and very easily could have killed him, made my wife and I think.

    Prayers sent, the world is a poorer place without her.

    I can only imagine the unspeakable pain and loss you are experiencing, I'm so sorry for your loss. The answer to your question is, minute by minute, day by day, never in isolation and surrounded by those who love you.
