Very Sad Day

How ironic that this comes the day after I reposted the cancer message in honor of my late father.

Sometime in the night, my sister Gwen passed away in her sleep.  She was far too young to die, and she leaves behind a husband and a 13 year old daughter.  We had known that she had battled breast cancer in the past, and she recently told us of a reoccurance that she was being treated for.  But apparently it was far more serious and dire then she told us.  We are in shock.

I know words are inadequate, but please know that you and your family are in my thoughts. Grief can be overwhelming but I'm sure you know that you have a lot of people around you who love you and are there to support you. And that, I hope will give you the strength to be there for your family, and niece in particular.

Again, my sincerest condolences. And I'm here to listen, anytime you want to unload, ever.

I've been out of town and just saw this entry tonight. I don't even know what to say because there's nothing that I can say that will do any good.
I am sending good thoughts to you and your family. May your sister's memory be for a blessing. *hugs you tight*

I've been behind on my flist and didn't see this until now. I know that you just cut me from your flist, but I still wanted to send my condolences anyway. I can't image how it must be. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I am coming to this message extremely late after having been very lax in checking my flist, so I'm sorry for that.

But far more than that, I'm so very sorry about what has happened. I've lost two relatives to cancer, but I can't presume to know what you're going through with having lost your sister. Please know that my best thoughts and wishes are with you, and I hope it helps you, in at least some small way, to be aware that there are many people thinking of you in the same way. Virtual hugs are crap compared to the real thing at a time like this, but I've got my arms wide open.

My deepest sympathies.

I don't go on LJ very often so I just came across this entry.

I don't know what else to say but that you have my heartfelt condolences on your loss. I can't even begin to imagine what you've been going through with this, but my thoughts are with you.

I wasn't really sure if this would be welcome so late but either way I thought I should say something.

Loosing someone is different for everyone, right? The where, when, how? So I can't say I can fully understand what you're going through, even now. The only thing I can really offer apart from my condolences is a suggestion. Someone might have already put a mention in or you might have already given thought to it yourself. Of course you may also have another way that helps. Writing, however, seems to be helpful to a lot of people.

I lost a friend a few years back and the heartache is still present but every so often when it gets particularly bad I log on to my LJ, put it on private and write him a letter. Stupid things, important things, it just makes it a little easier to handle. A way to tell them everything you never got to say...

You and your family have my deepest condolences. I wish you all the strength and courage I can give.

This is so sad I don't even know what to say other than offer very belated condolences.

I have a daughter who will be twelve this year and can't begin to imagine what it would be like for her to lose one of her parents. I hope your niece and brother-in-law are holding up OK following such a terrible loss.
