Heather - What a tragic loss! It really stops you in your tracks and makes you realize how short this life is. My thought and prayers are with all of you.

Jo Hall

My prayers are with all those who knew and loved Dave, especially his wife and child.

Two years ago we lost my husband's brother when his Army helicopter crashed. He was 30. It was devastating to lose a young, vibrant man but our faith is the one thing that sustained us. I pray Dave's family will feel that comfort and peace at this very challenging time.

Much love,


Oh Heather! Words seem so inadequate at a time like this! One of my dear friends lost her husband unexpectedly at Easter. She's now a 32 year old widow with a 2 year old daughter and twin 6 year old boys. So your situation is very close to home and touches my heart. I will remember Dave's family in my prayers. It's so hard to know what to do for the best, but I'm sure the Lord will guide you in knowing how to help your sister and her husband right now. How blessed we are to have the gospel in our lives and the knowledge that families are eternal. Once again, I'm so sorry for your loss.


Heather, I'm so sorry for your family's loss. I can't even begin to imagine. I'm in tears for his wife and child he left behind. It literally makes me sick to think about NOT having an understanding or faith in the Plan of Salvation and that we can be with our loved ones again. The comfort and peace and SECURITY it brings me is priceless and this is a gentle reminder not to take it for granted. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.

P.S. I'm SOOO like you, when something wrong or sad or whatever happens to someone I know, I immediately start working on a small gift or card just so they know I'm thinking of's how I work too!

I am so sorry to hear about your family's loss. He sounds like he was an incredible man. Thank heaven for the gospel and the sealing power of the temple. I will be praying for the comfort of their family.

My thoughts and prayers are with your family during this trial. It's so much harder to deal with when the person was still so young, and seemingly had so much life left to live. My heart goes out to his wife and daughter, and to all of you. We've all lost someone close to us, and can emapthize with how your family is feeling right now. What a comfor the plan of salvation can be during times like these. I know your thoughtful gifts will be greatly appreciated, and your thoughts and prayers will be felt. I tend to feel so useless when things like this happen, but I have a testimony that praying is doing something useful, and is very beneficial. I hope the Lord blesses all of you with some sense of peace and comfort. We love you!


You're in my prayers. I am so sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you and your extended family. Love You!

Heather, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your extended family. May the comfort of the Lord be with all of you!!


I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. My husband and I just lost a dear friend 3 weeks ago who was the best man in our wedding. I know what you mean about the crying yet there are still many tears left. I know your friends family will appreciate the gifts you are making. You will all be in our thoughts and prayers.


Both your family and extended family are in our prayers. I don't know exactly how the family feels but having experienced the same sudden loss of my own brother just two months ago, I empathize with them. I do know how incredible the power of the Comforter is during tragic times, such as this one. I pray they may be lifted up and comforted by the Spirit and they may be at peace.


I'm so sorry for everyone's loss. Hang in there and remember that you are loved and that Heavenly Father is aware of this man's family.

Debbie Webster

Oh, that is sad.
I too was crying yesterday all day because my husbands longtime grade school friend committed suicied on Tuesday.
So I am in the same boat feeling just awful and so sad for his 4 kids.
(((HUGS))) Debbie


oh heather sorry for your families loss. My prayers are with you all. How horrible and tragic. Its so much worse when its so unexpected and when they are so young. The lord must need these valiant men that is the third newly married young men that I've heard about in the past few months of sudden unexpected deaths. Good thing we are blessed with the knowledge of seeing our loved ones again. But I totally understand the tears that won't stop. hang in there love ya.


I was reading the paper just a few minutes ago and saw his obituary. I'm so sorry for his family and others affected by his death (including you!) Sympathy pains can be so strong! You will all be in my prayers!

Sandie McCarthy-Roberts

Heather... My sincere condolences at this horrific loss. May God, in His infinite Mercy... bless all of those who loved him, with His gentle peace and guiding strength, to get them thru this terrible terrible time. Words fail me. So much pain to bear. I can only imagine how his wife feels. His Mom... Just awful.

God Bless

Theresa Marie

I am SOOOO sorry to hear this. big hugs.

Lynn C.

Heather my on-line *Hug* to you. I wish I could do something for you. Just know that you are in my thoughts. I am just on my way out the door, to take my parents to the airport to fly to England. We just received word recently that my brother is in acoma with brain infection or clots. He is not doing well. I can't imagine what my dear sweet sister in law and their children must be going through right now. I am SO grateful for the plan of salvation and the peace and comfort that comes with that. "Till we meet again....." comes to my mind. I have been singing it all day. More hugs to you *hugs*.

Nikki Peck

Oh how sad. I can only imagine how hard that would be. A friend in my ward also lost a young brother-in-law last year and they still don't know exactly why. So sad. My heart goes out to your sister and her family. I'm sure your gifts will be greatly appreciated. You are always so thoughtful that way.


I'm so sorry to hear this. What a sad loss for his/your family.

Amy Sorensen

Heather, I am so sorry your family is experiencing this. It is such a strange feeling...the person is there and then just not there. It's hard, so hard. Having gone through something similar (my BIL died when he was 33), I can say that the only thing you can do to help is offer your love and compasion and understanding. Many hugs.


My heart is aching for you and your family as well as his sweet wife and daughter. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Steph S.

Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry to hear about this. I wish I was there to give you and your family great big bear hugs! Like so many others before me said, thank goodness for the Gospel! It is such a comfort during tragic times like these. I will keep you all in my prayers.


I am crying while just reading your wonderful tribute. I am sending hugs & prayers your way as you & your family forge ahead & expereice the week that lies ahead of you! We are SO LUCKY to have gospel & those blessings that are ours. My thoughts are with your entire family(extended family). May you feel our Saviors love, peace,& comfort.

Ann Snider


What a sweet tribute on your blog. So sorry that this has hit so close to home. What a neat family! I just can't imagine the pain that the young woman is going through.

Thanks for sharing.

We will continue to keep them in our prayers.


Amy N.

Oh Heather, that is so sad! It just seems so much harder when it's so unexpected, and sudden, and when it happens to someone so young. I'll keep the entire family in my prayers. ((HUGS))
