Subject: Obit: My heart is broken - Mick
From: Big Mick
Date: 05 Jul 08 - 06:52 PM

The most precious thing on this earth is our children. My daughter and one of her closest friends were on the way to my brother's today and were involved in an auto accident. The other little girl, whom I loved, did not make it. My daughter, who was driving, is going to be OK. She has a lacerated spleen, and is very sore, but will recover physically. We will have much work to do with her to help her through this, but her big heart is going to be hurt. All prayers, thoughts, whatever you do at this time, will be gratefully accepted.

I am beyond grief for this girls family. I have always told these kids that they are all my kids. That has been made real by this loss beyond what I can describe. I am not sure how I will come out of this. I ache for this wonderful girl's family, and I cannot stop my tears for them. I don't know how I will face them, but I must. We must. We must honor her life, and what a special friend she was to my Ciara.

Hold your children. Tell them today, right this damn minute, how very precious they are to you. Live and love with them like they might be gone tomorrow.

I am sorry for the ramble, but my world is upside down. I just thought my friends here ...... hell, I don't know what I thought. I can deal with problems that I can grab hold of and wrestle to the ground. I have no idea what to do with this.

Just give us some thoughts and prayers ...... please.

Mick

This is just absolutely awful.

Mick, you're right that we have to let those we love know it because we never know when it might be the last time we see them in this life.

Count me among those here who are sending lots of positive vibrations to the girl's family, and your daughter Ciara, and to you also.


Your daughter may want to look into groups in your area that can help her work through her grief at the loss of her very good friend. Those groups can also help her with the feelings of guilt that she may be feeling even though she shouldn't be guilty. I hope that she connects with these groups or connects with a counselor for the same reasons if she feels that she needs one.

As to how you face the girl's family, you face them being real.

Maybe you all need to cry together and talk about how much life really sucks and how you feel that you have also lost a member of your family. I trust your instincts. Just be yourself.

And please give your daughter a BIG hug from us.

You know my best thoughts are all yours and to all of your friends so deeply affected by this tragedy. Ciara has strong genes and a strong family but let her know how much we all here who have watched her grow are sending our best to her as well.

Tough times dear friend and words are never enough, just all that we have.........One of those many times here that I wish the'Cat were also geographical so we could all be together in times like these. You know that we are all with you in the ways we can be.......You, me, all of us I am sure wish we could hop in our cars, drive across town, and be together.

I am so sorry Mick............Much Love

Oh Mickdarlin'...I can hardly see for the tears. So, so sorry this happened. Please know there is a lot of love coming your way from all of us, esp. to Ciara and her friend's family. May we please have her friend's first name to include a more personal prayer?

The job of being a parent is full of joy and sorrow. Sometimes one seems to outweigh the other. May you and your family, as well as that of Ciara's friend, find some small comfort in sharing the grief and in knowing there are many, many of us who love you and send our best thoughts.

Much love,

Mick

Your appalling tragedy immediately made me think guiltily of my own loved ones, from whom I am separated by thousands of miles, and of two recent life-threatening incidents on the road on the same day but which - in the random way of these things - ended with no more than relief and shaking heads.

I offer a stranger's sympathy and solidarity, and the hope that all of you can somehow triumph over the grief, physical and emotional scars and feelings of helplessness.

Bon courage.

I don't know if this speaks to you in your circumstances, but I learned this "Sailor's Prayer" of Rod MacDonald on mudcat, and printed out this excerpt to hang on my wall when circumstances warranted it:

Though my sails be torn and tattered and my mast be turned about
Let the night wind chill me to my very soul
Though the spray might sting my eyes and the stars no light provide
Give me just another morning light to hold

For I will not lie me down, this rain a raging
I will not lie me down in such a storm
And if this night be unblessed I shall not take my rest
Until I reach another shore

You will take your daughter there. There is no doubt. It's just that you have to do it.

Mick, it's Buddhist and if you follow the link and read what it says, it might not seem just the right mantra to help, but this Medicine Buddha Mantra on youtube has been very helpful for a number of folks. Maybe not today, or tomorrow, but at some point, perhaps it will help to quiet broken hearts and bring some peace.

Next time Morgan and I chant it together we will keep you in our hearts and thoughts.

God Mick All I feel right now is deep sympathy for the children and all the parents.   IF there is something we all can do together to make this memory a more merciful and caring moment for everyone involved, please be bold enough to let it happen. It may be the customary rituals of bereavment or a door that suddenly opens to a more meaningful world. All that is certain is that this will one day be a powerful memory.

Please allow everyone who feels the need to help or grieve to do so in the ways they know best.
