It really hits home to hear this sad message from someone I have never met, but consider a friend. We may have to wait a long time to find answers to some of the "why's" of life. I can tell that you are a man of faith and since I also have faith ...and many "why's," I need to remind myself that in all things God works for the good of those who love him. (Romans 8:28). Prayers are on the way. Feel free to contact me if you need support.

Joe,

i'm truly sorry for your loss. I know full well the pain of losing someone close to you so young. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and yours. Find strength in your family and friends; Know that we are all looking out for you and sending our love.

Hi Joe,

I'm mostly a lurker here and other places on GW, but this notice of your family's sudden loss of this young family member brought tears to my eyes. I feel so very sad for what you all are going through.

I hope and pray that your family will get an answer to the cause of Amanda's passing and that it will give you some peace. My thoughts are especially strong for your mom. Sometimes the weight of being the one who discovered this takes some time to come to grips with. My mom made a similar discovery many years ago.

I Pray for gentle healing, and the retention of all the sweet memories you and your extended family have of Amanda, so you can pass them on to her young daughter.

May Peace soon find its way to you and yours.

RE: a time of great losss for ajijoe

Joe, there are no words that I know of to ease the pain you and your family are experiencing. Just hold on to the warm memories as you move forward. No one is truly gone if they live in your heart.

RE: a time of great losss for ajijoe

Dear Joe,

I do not know you, but your note here touched me. It's such a struggle to find peace when we lose someone so young- the unfairness of it can make us want to shake our fist at the sky, asking "Why?!"

I know sometime when we are struggling with the pain of loss, it can be difficult to see any positive. But I try to take that time to be grateful that I had this person in my life, even for a short while. Because the pain we feel at the passing of a beautiful soul is the price we must pay for having our lives enriched by them.

I hope you and your family find peace with this tragedy. Know you are being kept close in the hearts of those who share your love of nurturing another kind of life.

RE: a time of great losss for ajijoe

thank you so much Jenn

i did thank God for the 21 years he gave me with her,and i did ask why, he is slowly revealing the why maybe not the whole why but im getting some explanation, she did not like to burden others with her pain and make people upset, that was her way of showing her love to people, she may have been able to hide her pain from people but not from God, he is truly merciful.

im still struggling but i will heal

no one is ever gone if the live on in your heart

thanks so much your friend Joe

RE: a time of great losss for ajijoe

My deepest and most profound condolences Joe, to you and all that are survived by her. Our prayers are with you and her. I wish all of you that have been affected by this tragedy a speedy healing and recovery.
Sometimes it takes a great loss to make us realize things we never saw or wanted to see before and re evaluate our priorities. So perhaps even in her passing she will continue to bring goodness and light into your worlds.

Hey Joe

I hope your hangin in there during these times. I just was just thinking about ya and decided to snap a picture of something that might cheer ya up.

Here is a pic of one of the plants that grew from some seeds ya sent me a couple months back.
Photobucket

I know its only a pepper plant. And that plant dont meen much in the grand scheme of things. But to me it meens that you are a great person that is willing to help out another human being without asking anything in return. And to me, that DOES matter in the grand scheme of things.

Yer Friend

RE: a time of great losss for ajijoe

thanks so much again for this outpouring of love the Lord has lifted me up some, and i feel the tender embrace of his spirit

Kosher >> you are right i have the child to think about now and even though she is not Amanda she has become a great comfort to me as well as her new life has given my life new meaning

Geno >> yes the rain falls on the righteous and the wicked and even though we dont always understand why this is, as i said in my speech at Amanda viewing God wastes no life or opportunity to bring about his will and purpose, and in doing so brings much good as a result, im slowly seeing the good shine through he sorrow of this great loss in my life, what gives me the most solace is IN knowing that she is in heaven and that its a far greater reward that she has gone onto than i, i will see her again and this time we will never be parted, death's days are numbered and soon Jesus will step out from his clouds of glory and death will be no more, he will wipe away every tear from every eye!!!

Shoon >> thanks so much that plant is beautiful, it reminds me that what i do for others is not in vein, we dont always see the outcome of the kindness we sow in this world, but THANKS YOU THAT PLANT IS GOING TO PRODUCE ABUNDANTLY

again to all thank you so much for taking the time to console me, your reward is great

JESUS SAID THAT "IF WE GIVE JUST A CUP OF COLD WATER IN HIS NAME WE SHALL NOT LOSS OUR REWARD

THANKS YOUR FRIEND JOE
