Katie, there are so many eloquent posters on this forum, who very beautifully express the feelings of many of us who are not as good with words in times like this.

I'm sure that you have even more people than you see here supporting you, even if we don't always know how to say it very well in a post.

Lee

Thanks everyone.

That was a beautiful and sensitive gesture on the part of the nurse. Something of such significance can be an enormous support.
Words For It by Julia Cameron
I wish I could take language

And fold it like cool, moist rags.

I would lay words on your forehead.
I would wrap words on your wrists.
"There, there," my words would say–
Or something better.
I would ask them to murmur,
"Hush" and "Shh, shhh, it's all right."
I would ask them to hold you all night.
I wish I could take language
And daub and soothe and cool
Where fever blisters and burns,
Where fever turns yourself against you.
I wish I could take language
And heal the words that were the wounds
You have no names for.

Katie,

I am so very sorry about Buck. He's a gem of a man, as you are of a woman.

My love to you both and your whole family. I will keep praying for you!

Jenny

Katie..... I'm speechless with wet eyes..
haven't been around here much last time, but I never never ever expected something like this..
I alway enjoy bucks character..
I still will not believe it, will turn out well.
Buck must be strong enough...

this morning as I awaken I'm feeling numb.
the sadness I feel is welling up in the form of tears.
but there is a future and that's as I'll pray now.
a true and beautiful future devoid of pain anguish or sorrow.
bless these dear ones Lord.
fill their body will comfort as deep as any ocean and as pure as a first rain.
God give them hope and courage, in Your name...

Oh no. Nonono. I'm heartsick and can hardly get this down here. I'm still going to pray for a miracle. Katie, all my love to you. And please hug Buck for me.

Katie,

Right before I woke up this morning I had a very long dream. In my dream I was with you and Buck. I really can't remember much about the dream, except that we were all just kind of hanging out at your house and workshop. I have no idea what your house looks like, and other than a wedding photo you posted, I have no idea what you and Buck look like, but in my dream I could see you both as clear as day. Nothing much happened in my dream, but it made me feel good to be hanging out with both of you and I didn't want the dream to end.

I'm still praying.

Barbara

I feel a bit awkward posting here because I'm new & you all really don't know me... it almost seems like I am intruding on your circle - but, for whatever it's worth, coming from a stranger... I first want to send my sincere heartfelt condolences to Katie & Buck and their family... and second, I would like to say that the warmth I've witnessed here on this board has renewed my faith in humanity. Blessings, Love & Light to All...

No need to feel awkward. When we say "Welcome" we mean it. Thank you for expressing your feelings.
