When words are not enough .....

What can you say to friends who have just had the awful news that their beautiful daughter has collapsed and died suddenly.
She was only 30 years old.
She had her life before her.
They were looking forward to sharing that life with her - perhaps her marriage and grandchildren and all the happiness and fulfilment that brings to all the family.
To have that life so brutally taken from them is appalling and we are all in shock.
How do you deal with it? Your child should not die before you!!
We and all their friends are thinking of them and sending out our love.

One of my freinds died very suddenly aged just 32, leaving 3 little boys behind. Her Mother threw herself into raising those boys and we all helped, as our tribute to "our girl", as we call her.
That was 4 years ago and I still can't fully accept we will never see her again.
So I can imagine only too well what this family is going through and I will pray for them xx

Gosh that is terrible new... it is shocking and a bit worrying as I lately I am hearing about a lot of cases of young, supposedly healthy people dying suddenly. It happened to a parent I knew a few years ago, she had three young boys and just collapsed one day and never recovered. she was 31.

Do you know what the cause of death was? It is awful to lose someone in any case, but so sudden and so young... there are no words!

It is too terrible for words, my hubby has recently lost a work colleague who collapsed and died of a brain haemmorhage at work, he was 36. It is shocking and you are right there are no words...Thinking of you all at this terrible time.
