  1. Ian, knowing them a little as I do it makes my heart ache. Such a tragic and untimely death for someone with so much to live for.

  2. It is impossible for anyone who has not been in her place to imagine what it is like.

    Four and a half months is too short. I had the privelidge of 9 years so my heart goes out to her. The kids will be OK. I have living proof. Mine were 2 and 4 years old. She on the other hand . . .

    Keep the faith Ian, she’s going to need it.

  3. I remember, when I was a curate, going into a house where the family was facing tragic grief and catching the end of a visit by the family doctor who was saying to them, “Remember, it all depends on having a right view of Jesus”.

    I felt like questioning the ethical standards of a doctor who used such a situation to push his own religious views, but let it go. It would be a malignant God who grabbed people at a whim.

  4. News like that certainly stops you in your tracks. There are no words to make it easier. Being there to listen in the days and months ahead will help.
