Mick, I feel for you so much, and I know nothing can take away your pain. I understand, too, your feelings for your daughter's friend - we have an 'adopted' daughter too who we care for as much as our own.

It may not help now, but perhaps in the future, a slightly adapted version of a song which has helped us through in the past:

        THE LEAF

As I was a-walking one morning at ease,
A-viewing the leaves as they fell from the trees,
All in full motion appearing to be:
Those that had withered, they fell from the tree.

        What's the life of a man any more than a leaf?
        A man has his seasons so why should he grieve?
        Although through this life we appear fine and gay,
        Like a leaf we must wither and soon fade away.

If you had seen the leaves just a few days ago,
How beautiful and bright they did all seem to grow;
A frost came upon them and withered them all;
A storm came along them and down they did fall.

When age or affliction upon us do call,
Like a leaf we must wither and down we must fall;
Some taken early, so soon to depart,
But as we remember, they live in our hearts.

You're very much in my thoughts.

Love,
Barbara

Oh, Mick, I'm so sorry. At this very moment our son Chris, his wife, Kat and our 2 granddaughters and our very NEW grandson, 2 weeks old-- Byron Sky Thieme, are driving here from the Chicago area. I'm in tears reading of your anguish, and your daughters pain and the grief of all of you. If empathy is at all a part of our being at this stage of evolution, you have all the sincere feelings of sorrow and grief I am capable of. And love, too, to hold you all!

One of the worst unavoidable facts of life is when horrible things happen to good people, and these sudden, shocking tragedies are the worst. The best that anyone can do in these circumstances is to try, somehow, to muster up the strength from within that will be so sorely needed by those around you. I echo what everyone else has posted here and only hope our mere words can in some small way help you to find that strength.

Take care of your daughter....and when you can bear it, go play that low whistle in a quiet place.

There are no words that any of us can say, or advice that any of us can give, adequate for the situation. With all you were already going through, this new horror must be almost impossible to bear. I am incredibly thankful that it happened at a time when you were home and available to be with Ciara and give her the love and support she needs, while getting the love and support you need.

Rapaire is right - this is a time when counseling is absolutely called for, for everyone concerned. And others are right, too - we, your friends, are thinking about you and sending you our care. We are not grieving like you are grieving, but nevertheless we do grieve with you.

Call me anytime, friend. You know that you can.

Warmly,
Dan

Mick ~

I grieve with you. Twenty-one years ago my 21-year-old son was a passenger in a vehicle driven by his uncle. The car failed a curve and went over a cliff along California's coast highway. They say he lived all night, but was so badly injured that he had no way of living or knowing that his uncle had already died in the plunge. I still feel the agony of that phone call.

Four years ago, my granddaughter was thrown from a pickup truck in which her boy friend was killed. She suffered major head trauma and will never be the same. Today she sits in a federal penitentiary for parole violations she may never comprehend.

Your post has brought these tragic memories vividly back to me. Be strong for your daughter. Make sure she gets sound post-traumatic stress counseling. She will need your love and counseling more than you or anyone else will ever know. Make sure she knows you will do all that it takes to help her into the future. Do not let her fall prey to misguided concepts from her peers. Let her know you are her friend and best ally.

May you and your daughter both find peace through love and kindness.

GEST

As someone who has lost a stepdaughter and an "adopted family member", who we actually took in for a while, at various times, while I can say I'll never be able to fully understand the effects of your grief and that of your family and that of the girl who died, I have felt high-magnitude grief and have seen its effects on myself those around me.

Be strong, finding strength within yourselves and reach out and find it from what other human and spiritual sources are available as needed. Keep a knowledge of what the others are going through in order to get through it on a family as well as an individual level. My thoughts are with you as well.

What a terrible shock for all concerned. I sincerely hope that the family of that youngster may be able to take some modicum of comfort also from this thread which will, I am certain, continue to grow.
I've been on to Mudcat (and off) for a few years without ever feeling part of it's "inner core" but the strange thing is that I almost feel that I am acquainted with you Mick, having read your many, knowledgable posts on so many topics over that time.

Caring thoughts from British Columbia to Ciara and all of you in both families. Language can't express much, can it?

What to offer Ciara as she adjusts to this changed world? My mom told me once, "You do have the strength. You're descended from survivors." It stuck with me, and helped.

Might-have-beens, not the actual loss, hurt the worst. Good, life-giving memories break the if-only... cycle.

Young leaves wind-torn, old leaves care-worn
Tumbling, crumbling into memory, form
Soil to feed next season's growth again

We can only guess how much of our road we will share with a fellow traveller. Thank you, Mick, for sharing both gifts with us: grieving and warning.

Mick I know what a lovely warm person you are, and how you share it with those around you, so let me return some of that love and affection. I was sorry I am to hear of this accident, and what a scare it must have given you and Mary Lou. Give Ciara a hug from me when she isn't too sore to be hugged. She will heal physically, but mentally it will stay with her for a long time, so keep taking care of her even after the bruises go away.

Ciara's Friend

Lord of the heavens and of Earth
Let the lovelight of this youngling,
This dear child, friend, joy-bringer,
Shine
Lighting the dark around us
Like stars, fireflies,
Shimmering Northern Lights.

May the thought of her in years to come
Bring comfort more than grief
To those who remain behind, let it bring
Light;
That the darkest hours be brightened
Lightened, gentled, turned from sorrow
Into wonder of wonders, joy

That she was here and alive,
A song once begun, sung now in a different
Lovely mode, by a multitude of voices;
Celebrated
In a hundred harmonies of hallelujah
That those who love her here can tell
Of her bright life, shining still in their hearts.
