Regina, I still pray for your family often. Your experience with Joshua touched me on a very personal level.

You are in my prayers as the anniversary of Joshua's death approaches.

Regina, you don't know me, and it feels wierd to say that I remember reading of the loss of your dear Joshua and was very affected by it. I will be praying for you all.

Thank you, all of you, so much for your thoughts, kind words, and prayer. We are getting through it.

I continue to pray for you and your family. I have asked Joshua on many occassions to intercede for my family... and he is a powerful warrior!

I think of you all and Joshua very, very often. I still feel so sad for you all.

Jen said...

I remember following your familys story when it happened. There were days when all I could do was stare at your beautiful son. He has touched me so deeply, and I never even met him. I still think of him often.... Please be assured of our prayers for you and your family on that day.

Praying for you and your family, esp. this week, Regina. We don't know each other but like others here your story and Joshua's continue to stay with me -- I think of and pray for you often.

Ouiz said...

You have no idea how often I have prayed for you, and cried for your loss, and begged God to hold you and your family close.

May you be given extra grace and comfort this week... and always...

We will continue to keep your family in our prayers, especially on this first anniversary. I will offer up Mass tomorrow, the 8th, for your intentions. May God continue to bless your family.

I asked Joshua for his intercession just last evening, along with that of my own little Francis (lost this past January).

May God bless and strengthen us all, today and always.

With prayers & love in the unity of Jesus & Mary,

Margaret B. & family

qualcosa di bello said...

you and your family are in my prayers, especially today.

Eternal rest grant to them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

My parish choir sang a short concert before Mass this morning, and as we prepared to sing our final song, our choir director asked the audience to remember those who had died in the last year, and to pray for them and their families as we sang.

I thought of your family, and of your Joshua. The piece we sang was "When David Heard that Absalom Was Slain," written in 1622 by Thomas Tomkins. The music is very sad, very dissonant, sounding like sobbing and sighing, but the final chord is calm and serene, as though King David has finally come to terms with his grief over the death of his son.

I pray that you and your family have found or will find a similar peace.

Ria said...

I have been and will be praying for you and your family.
I wish I could have met him.

Mary Ellen Barrett said...

Prayers offered for you and your family.

Joselyn said...

I remember him, too. It seems so much longer than a year ago, and though I never met any of you, your loss touched me deeply. I saw how it could have happened to any of us, and I remember it often as I hug my little boys. Children are a great blessing, and we are but their stewards.

You are still in my prayers.
