At least in this way, he lives still, and may his memory carry you through some difficult days.

I know you only from running with you and would like to offer to run with you when you are ready. It has helped me through losing several close family members, as you might remember.

Be Still

Be still like the grass on a melancholy summer day
Be still like desert shrub.

Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds.

If you are still this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.

Robert was my classmate for one year a year ago. Whenever I saw him again this past year, I couldn't help but think, what a pleasant person Robert is. This will be how we all remember him, as a pleasant friendly young man.

My heart goes out to your family. The loss of a child is unbearable. I was hoping to help out by my phone call about Skunk Hollow but it was too late. Please know that my family cares about all of you and what you are going through and that Robert, your son, in his short life here on earth, made a difference to this world.

I want to express my deepest condolences for your loss. Robert was a brilliant, beautiful young man. He was a classmate and a friend of mine at UofT and he will be missed each and every day. Some of us met on Tuesday to remember Robert: whether it was meeting in the dinning hall for dinner or chatting with him before class, he was always kind, polite and funny. May you cherish all the fond memories as I know I will.

I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your wonderful son. I didn't know Robert, although he sounded like an exceptional person. I prayed for you and Robert during the last few weeks and cried when he was found both for him and his family. May god help you through this tragic time in your lives.

I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your son. He sounded like a fine young man. I prayed for you all week, as you searched for him - knowing the anguish of the 'not knowing'. We lost our 23 yr old son hiking up a mountain in Kananaskis, in July '03. Some rock crumbled under him and he was gone. We are forever changed. Not a day goes by without missing him. Cherish your photos and memories. My prayers for you will continue.
