    Hi Everyone.

    I don't know why I am posting this here but it feels right and Ian said it's OK. This place is kind of like another family to me.

    My wife passed away on Tuesday night in Boston. She was 36. We have 3 kids, 14, 12, and 8 years old.

    We're all very devastated, of course. But we're hanging in there and the kids have been amazing. I'm also lucky to have several sets of supportive relatives, friends, and colleagues. So we're going to work our way through this eventually.

    I just wanted to let you all know.

    Dave

    Desperate news Dave

    No words can describe how sorry I am for you and your family.


    Speechless. I'm so incredibly sorry.

    What he said. (Except for the prayers part; I'm an atheist.)

    Terrible, terrible news.

    How expected was this?

    Deepest condolences for your terrible news, PJ. I know that you have worked very hard to do what it takes to provide as a good father. This includes leaving the country for some time to attend your work responsibilities, which had to have been difficult in itself.

    I agree that this is a more than proper place to share this kind of news, as many of us are a bit of an extended family.

    As many others have mentioned, there are more than enough members to try and help in any situation possible, which includes pretty much everything that you may need.

    May you find peace in the upcoming time ahead, and heal quickly.

    Patjew, with your permission I'd like to change my avatar this year with one that dedicates my Patsfans posts this season to her memory for you. I don't have the skill or software to create one though. Can anyone out there help me?

    Awful news. Had to take time to compose myself before posting.
    Condolences. May your family find the strength in friends and elsewhere in this awful time.
    Lost my little sister at 32 to melanoma. She left a husband and 2 young kids. Long story (husband later remarried well but died a few years later with kids in their teens) but decades later my niece and nephew turned out terrific. Patriots fans too.

    Very sorry for your loss. We lost our 3rd daughter a little of two years ago and one of the things that really helped the kids was going to grief groups where they interacted with their peers and realized they weren't different and that other kids had to go through it. I'm not sure what part of the Boston Area you're from but if you're interested you can PM me and I can either direct you if I know or find out if I don't a good one in your area.

    Peace to you and your family.

    Dave: I am SO very sorry to hear this.......I know you don't know me from "Adam" but words can not express the sorrow I feel for you and your kids. I am saying a prayer for you all as we speak. If there is anything I can do (even tho I live in Florida) to help please let me know. I will PM Ian to see if we can all start a fund or something for your kids to help. Even if you are doing fine financially.....3 kids.....you will need money for something for them and I am sure all the "regulars" on here will help. Again, my heart goes out to you and your family.....I can not imagine the pain you are going through. It is one thing to lose a loved one......it is another to lose your wife, and the kid's mother....at such a young age......Don't know what to say except try to stay strong and god bless......Brian
