I dont know you or your family but have some words that may help you in your loss. Susan St James lost her son in a plane crash and she said that when she came to realize that we are not human beings having a spiritual experience but spiritual beings having a human experience and some human experiences are shorter than others. you will be reunited someday and you will ALWAYS be their parents, no one can take that away from you. God Bless you in your loss and help you through this process.

If words could only say, but they cannot. If acts could only provide, but they cannot. If thoughts could only tell, but they cannot. I read of your loss and sat and thought of my children for an hour - lost in thought. No more words.

John and Terri,
I am so, so sorry to hear of your losses. I don't have any children, but I still tear up thinking about when I had to have my childhood cat put to sleep 14 years ago. I simply cannot imagine the magnitude of your feelings. I just know that I am so sorry and will be praying for you both to find comfort.

John & Terri - You have been ever present in my thoughts and prayers. I was deeply moved by the service yesterday Celebrating the lives of Karl & Laura. I was amazed by the Love and Peace that filled the sanctuary as we gathered together to grieve the loss of your two beautiful children - these two incredibly bright young people - who had already contributed so much to this world. Thank you so much for opening this Celebration to us and for teaching us through your acts of amazing wisdom.

My Partner, Carrie & I are heart broken for You. The past few days, we found ourselves sheltering our children - trying to protect them from everything - thinking we can somehow limit their exposure to danger. We have been acting out of Fear. Your message on the back of the program and then again to me in person yesterday was so powerful and freeing - "Parents please, continue to allow your children to live their lives to the fullest - we have no regrets." Thank you for this message.

John – I have always had deep respect for you. You have been a Leader in the Assistive Technology Community for over 20 years & taught many of us to dream Big about how technology can change people's lives for the better. Over the past few days, You & Terri have taught me even Bigger life lessons by the grace, kindness and love you have shown in this time of deep sorrow – especially giving life to other children.

I am here for you –
Sending You Peace, Light, and Love!

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

Laura was our patient at Dr. Evans' office. We are going to miss Laura and her brother terribly. Laura's last visit was very memorable. She was talkative and gave us an update on her progress with the Davis Middle School band and science fair projects. She always brightened our office with her bubbly personality. I know she is in heaven talking with everyone and playing her saxaphone. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Anschutz family.

I'm sorry of your loss. I used to be best friends with Laura when we went to Shoal Creek together in Kindergarten and first grade. I remember thinking when she would come over to my house or I would go over to play with her how smart she was. I just want you to know that your family is in our prayers.
Sunday, March 28, 2010
Karl was our patient at Dr Evans' office. We are going to miss him very much. Karl's last visit was memorable. I told him how much I enjoyed the Heritage Jazz Band concert and he was pleased that I attended and enjoyed it. Karl had just returned from one of his hiking trips, roughing it in the woods. He said it "awesome" and very strenuous. He told me how excited he was about attending Georgia Tech and majoring in mechanical engineering. I know Karl is in heaven playing his trumpet and entertaining all the angels and saints. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Anschutz family.

I first met Karl and Laura when I attended Shoal Creek Elementary school. I was a year older than Karl and Laura was five years younger than me. My brother was in the same grade as Laura so I saw them often even after I moved on to middle school and high school.
Karl and Laura were loved by everyone. They were smart, caring young adults. My thoughts and prayers are with their friends and family. They will be truly missed.

I went to Heritage and I was in the band. Karl always seemed like he really enjoyed everything he did.

I know that they will be missed and you are in my prayers.

If I can in any small way help you to relieve the grief you are experiencing, do not hesitate to contact me. There has never been a time that I did not enjoy spending time with you. May God bless you and your family and send you the strength you need in this time of sorrow. "To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under Heaven ... A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance." Within your time of mourning may you be able to celebrate the lives of your loved ones.

Dearest Anschutz family:
My happiest memories in recent years stem from your beautiful gardens where we all gathered together to partake of your good food and loving laughter. I am devastated by the loss of sweet granddaughter, Laura, and stalwart Karl, proud grandson, to Oma and Gommie! No words can adequately express such a loss, so I offer you this prayer on their behalf:

“O Thou kind Lord! Grant that these trees may become the adornment of the Abha Kingdom. Cause them to grow through Thy celestial bounty. Make them fresh and verdant and besprinkle them with heavenly dewdrops. Attire them with robes of radiant beauty and crown their heads with gorgeous blossoms. Adorn them with goodly fruit and waft over them Thy sweet savors. Thou art the Bestower, the All-Loving, the Most Radiant the Most Resplendent.”

May my tears water this resplendent garden.
Deepest love
Saturday, March 27, 2010
John & Terri, and all of the family,

To The Anschutz Family,
I read the article in the newspaper and immediately said a prayer for your family. I do not know you personally, but we are all members of God's Loving Family.Your children were blessed with many talents and a loving family. If you were to ask them today if they would like to come back home, they would say no because of being surrounded by God's Love.I pray that God will wrap His loving arms around each of you and give you love and strength as each day passes. May God Bless Each of You.
Saturday, March 27, 2010
Dear John and Terri,
Since hearing about your children, as a parent, I cannot think of anything more difficult to bear. I had never met Karl and Laura, but it is very apparant that they both lived a legacy of kindness, honor, dedication and sense of adventure and fun that will continue on in the hearts and lives of your family and the students at Heritage High and Davis Middle School. I pray for God to give you the strength you will need for the days, weeks and years ahead.
John 16:22 "Therefore, you have grief now; but I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you."

Love, Clare Hartigan, Shepherd Center
Saturday, March 27, 2010
I feel your pain and loss. Look to God,for He alone knows what you are going through. Your two angels are with Him. You are both in my prayers. God bless you!
Saturday, March 27, 2010
Mr. and Mrs. Anschutz,
I do not know you, but my heart is broken for you on the loss of your wonderful, beautiful, gifted children. Please know that many people are praying for you and sending you love in hopes that we can bear some small portion of your pain. With love from former St. Pius parishoners.
Saturday, March 27, 2010
I am a sophomore at Heritage High School and I've known of the Anschutz family since I was in kindergarten at Shoal Creek Elementary. I was a study hall student in Karl's AP lit class, and since i have known him I've always remembered him as such a bright kid and a hard wokring student. Also, Laura followed the same footsteps of her brother. They were both very determined, sweet kids and it's such a tradgedy they were not able to live the life they had ahead of them. I don't understand why these things happen, but all I can figure is that God had a better plan. I speak for all of Heritage High when I say that Karl definately left his mark. Deepest empathy for the family and friends of both these angels.

Saturday, March 27, 2010
Words cannot express my sadness for the loss you have suffered. I am so sorry for what has happened to your family and hope you will find some comfort in all of your memories.
Saturday, March 27, 2010
To our dearest family, some things we would like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that we arrived okay.
We are writing this from heaven. Here we dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because we are out of sight.
Remember that we are with you every morning, noon and night.
That day we had to leave you when our life on earth was through,
God picked us up and hugged us and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave us a list of things, that he wished for us to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and we are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of our life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

We wish that we could tell you all that God has planned.
But if we were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though our life on earth is over.
We are closer to you now, than we ever were before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always our philosophy and we would like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now we are contented....that our life has been worthwhile,
knowing as we passed along the way, we made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got us on your mind;
We are walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to we.

I am certain they will watch over your entire family from Heaven.

Your Shepherd family is here for you. God Bless.

Because we lost our grand daughters (ages 15 and 17, sisters) in a car wreck, Christmas 2008, I know the black dark hole in which you find yourselves.

John and Terri,
I have been constantly thinking of you since I got the horrible news yesterday morning. I can not seem to find any words that approach the gravity of your sorrow. The only thing I knew to do last night was to walk in the front door and immediately hug my son and daughter until they forced me to let them go. The notion that I might not be able to do that tomorrow is inconceivable and hence my loss for words. Know that the entire Shepherd Center, your work family, is in shock and is grieving with you. Know that all you need to do is give a hint, and we will individually and collectively come running. My family is praying for yours.
Friday, March 26, 2010

Laura was an incredibly nice person. We went to Program Challenge with her all throughout elementary school, and we honestly never doubted just how sincere she was about everything that she did. She was completely real and always willing to help people out. She didn't let people get her down; she always kept trying, regardless of what everyone else thought. We're sorry for your loss, Mr. and Mrs. Anschutz.

This is of little consolation, however, God has 2 more wonderful angels to carry out his wonderful work.

I didn't know Laura very well, but you didn't have to know her good to know she was a good person. She had something about her that told you she knew where she was going and she was going to be someone good. If anyone could be president I think it would have been her. She was one of the smartest and most talented girls I know and I'm dearly sorry she has left this world. Even though she has left she stiil lives on and we know she's in a better place. I send my prayers to the family of Karl and Laura and all of our prayers will get you through this. We will always remember Laura and Karl, we love you.
Thursday, March 25, 2010
I knew Karl very well i worked with him at Bert Adams Scout Reservation. We basically lived together for 3 months out of the year. At camp we consider everyone there a member of one big family. Karl was like a brother to me and i will never forget all the fun times we had a camp.

Mr. and Mrs. Anschutz,

My entire family is deeply, deeply sorry for your loss and our hearts go out to the both of you. I didn't know Karl but we all recognized Laura as the standard of excellence at Shoal Creek as well as DMS. My son Caleb was really shaken by the news because he and Laura have been classmates since Ms. Celestine's 3rd grade class. We were all crushed because in addition to being an excellent student, she was such a kind person, as I'm sure your son was as well. May God comfort you both in this most difficult time.

Sincerely,

The Horton Family

I am so,so,so sorry for your loss. I lost my little girl Nikki this past Thanksgiving and everyday is tough but the thing that keeps me going is that I told her many times daily that I loved her and I know in my heart that she knew how special she was. My point is that kids don't just end up like yours without a great life and without having so much love that makes them so positive and sucessful. May GOD bless your family and I am so sorry for you guys. Always remember that there in heaven together and with a great baby sitter. My prayers are with the entire famiy. JJ

My son is 12, he's my only child. I can't express to your family the sadness I felt when I read this story. I'm still very upset as I write this.

My heart goes out to all of you as a parent and as a caring person.

I am so sorry about the loss of Laura and Karl Anschutz. They will be dearly missed, though I never knew Laura that well, nor Karl, I'm still very sorry about this incident. It's ashame that it had to happen. The school is being very helpful with helping others and helping with peoples grief. They're having counselors come in. Laura and Karl will be missed, but at least they're together still, and in a very happy place.

Dear family of Karl and Laura,
I can't even begin to imagine the grief you are experiencing at this time. Although you are technically strangers to me, we are both mothers and fathers, and for that reason connected for the most tragic reason. I don't know a thing about you - whether you are persons of faith or not. Either way, I hope that you will find peace in whatever way you are able, certainly through the support of family and friends and in the memories you hold of your precious children. It sounded from the article like you have reason to be so proud of what they accomplished in their young lives. Please know that our prayers go out to you and I pray so fervently for your strength and eventual healing. You will not be forgotten in our hearts.
Thursday, March 25, 2010
May GOD Bless these children and give their parents the strength they need right now.
