Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear

I'm so sorry,Jessica. I can't even begin to imagine what you are experiencing right now. I wish there were words enough to express my sympathy. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Sweet sweet boy. Our hearts are so broken. Some things will never make sense to us this side of Heaven, but we can look forward to the day we get to love on you again.
What a blessing you are to so many. We love and miss you.

My prayers are with you at this time of tragedy. Michael was a joy to have in class and a light to anyone's day. He loved big and smiled often which made him a great kid. I can't begin to imagine what you are facing right now but I do offer my prayers and love. I wish I could be there in person on Monday but I will be out of town. I will miss my little student. My students always take a part of my heart with them.
