Grateful11,

Words can never express the rending in our heart that occurs when someone so loved is taken from us.

Wishing you strength and peace in the days ahead.

So sorry. Now that I have a son of my own I feel your pain a thousand-fold more than I would have before. My thoughts and prayers go to you and your family. I'm happy that there are people in this world like your son and saddened that he has left us before I could meet him. Your descriptions make him sound like a truly beautiful person.

I don't do real well at times like this, I don't think that I ever choose the right words or say the right thing...

I'm sitting here with tears in my eyes. Even though I've never actually met him, or actually known him I'm feeling sadness and sorrow over the loss of Jesse. If I was there with you and the family I would give all of you a big hug (because that's what I do) so, please accept a virtual hug in it's stead along with my deepest condolences.

I'm reminded of an exchange from the episode "The Black Sun" from the sci-fi series "Space: 1999":

Commander Koenig: "To everything that might have been."
Professor Bergman: "To everything that was."

...hopefully some of those words will be the right ones...

Peace

I can't even imagine how painful this must be for you and your family. Take comfort in knowing that you did everything possible for Jesse, and that he always could feel your love.

They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

More thoughts and prayers from here, too, as words alone are incomplete and can't compete in matters of such heartbreak.

Jesse's powerful story has touched, and inspired galaxies.

Grateful, I am so terribly sorry for your loss.

And this is the Comfort of the Good,
that the Grave cannot hold them,
and that they live as soon as they die.

For Death is no more than a Turning of us over
from Time to Eternity.

Nor can there be a Revolution without it;
for it supposes the Dissolution of one form,
in order to the Succession of another.

Death then, being the Way and Condition of Life,
we cannot love to live,
if we cannot bear to die.

They that love beyond the World,
cannot be separated by it.

Death cannot kill, what never dies.


-- William Penn

I'm speechless - what you went through in literally hours is beyond my capacity to comprehend.

I hope that in the years that you were part of Jesse's life, and he part of yours, that he helped you
discover a strength you never knew you had, that you can impart to the rest of the family - that
began with Jesse and his hurdles.

You're all in my thoughts.

Nuts. I'm sorry that this had to happen and in this way. The helpless feeling is so very frustrating. It sounds like Jesse spread a lot of joy the short time he was with you. I wish we all could have met him as I think we would have been better people for knowing him. As it is, I am grateful to you for showing us a glimpse of the wonderful person that he was.

Ahh..... Nuts.

Your family's example of love and grace through these times shows us all how much Jesse is loved and valued. We would all be better people to even have a sliver of that touch our hearts and help us improve.

You helped him fly and someday, you will all fly together in the fullness of joy without any earthly restrictions.

When the time is appropriate, let us know what we can do.

We all have fathers. Many have fathers who support them, and most have fathers who love them. Very few have fathers as good as you were to Jesse.

You have oft described your struggle to cope with what has come these last horrible days, sharing your uncertainties and fears and pain. I have seen in this time a man so strong and steadfast that it has brought me to tears to witness it. Jesse was a good man, a young man, a challenged man; he was his father's man. He left this world too early, but departed as a man who knew his place in it and was finding his way. Many fathers have tried and failed to raise simpler sons with easier paths to become true men. Jesse became that, and much of my sorrow now is that the world has been robbed of that success.

I cannot do anything to ease your pain except to love you and all those who grieve Jesse. Along with all these sweet condolences, i wanted to let you know that amongst this wretchedness i saw something beautiful - a powerfully good and loving father who gave his son a life worth living. Thank you for that, and on behalf of all who were with you in flesh and spirit these last days, thank you for fighting so hard for Jesse. You did not fail, though we all have lost.
