That is terrible. I have no words. My thoughts will be with them.


I saw that on the news. Our sympathies to you and Alex's family.


Stunned, I can not imagine the hurt and pain. My thoughts are with you


I can't even imagine the torturous pain. I am so sorry.


Oh, I am so sad. My heart just aches for all of you. This is a terrible, terrible thing in your lives. I'm so sorry. Hug Chloe really hard.

My thoughts are with you guys and the parents of Alex.


I'm so sorry. My thoughts and prayers are with the aggrieved.




We were in tears last night hearing this story. It's the most awful thing we've ever heard. I'm so sorry. Big hugs to Chloe. It's going to be hard for all of you.


Good grief. We should not have to hear such tragedy to make us hug our kids a little bit harder each day. My heart aches. While words cannot suffice, your actions and friendship will mean the world to your friends.

What do you say? Words turn back.

Rest in Peace, Alex.

Life is so fragile. I'm so sorry for your loss and for her family. You are in my thoughts.

That is tragic man. I grew up boating, and we definitely try to take extra precautions with small kids around but it's hard. Prayers go out to the family and to you guys.


As a parent, you see your kid's face in the faces of all of the kids that are taken from their families and loved ones. Hugs to you guys and deepest condolences to Alex's family.

Sending positive energy your way...


How tragic. I'm sorry.


My deepest sympathies to your family and Alex's. So terribly sorry for their loss.


Truly heartbreaking. My heart goes out to you and Alex's family.


My prayers and warmest thoughts to you, your family, and friends.


Here via BlogHer ads. My very best to you and your friends.

OMG. I am so very sorry for your friend's loss as well as yours. How utterly heartbreaking!

You're all in my thoughts.


I am so sorry... Sending warm thoughts your way and to Alex's family.


There are no words that can ever make this right. I will pray for Alex, her family, and for you, as we tuck our brood in tonight.

You're right: no father should ever have to bury a daughter. It's just not the way it's supposed to be.

maggie, dammit

When I first saw this, I x'd it out right away.

I have a three year old daughter. I just couldn't read your words, nor look at that picture.

I forced myself to come back here and reopen this post.

I wish I could think of something to say.

I'm horrified.

And I'm so very, very, very, very, very sorry.

Sweet Jesus.


Sad, crying...there really aren't any words that matter for this kind of thing.

I am so utterly sorry.
