"my goodness brother, my heart breaks for you and your wife. My first child, a daughter is two weeks old tomorrow, and I'm choked up to even imagine. Three years ago my best friend lost a son this exact way. I know I don't have his…"
"Wounds take time to heal, whether or the body or of the heart. If not cared for they can become septic and even more dangerous than the original wound. You and your wife have been dealt a very serious wound. Take time to…"
"I just wanted to take a moment to let all of you know that I have read all of the words, thoughts, advice and condolences you've shared with me over this post. I greatly appreciate each of you who took the time to read and to add your own…"
"Thank you, Tyler, for such a heartfelt and well stated posting. I felt very touched by how you related your experience, and I hope that you have been able to find something of what you need from this site. -- Jay"
"I do not believe I can compose any words better than those that were written before mine. You have been offered some good advice and thoughtful words. As I read your post I am truly saddened by your family’s loss…

"Well said, Larry. While I truly believe God has a plan, there are times like this when people don't want to be encouraged or told about His plan. They just want you to listen and offer comfort, not advice or cute anecdotes. People are…"

"Don't flatter yourself, Johnny boy. The only people you can corner are the teenagers on the forum. You have proven to be nothing but a stalking parasite and heckler, just as Will once described, although I certainly will respect his…"
