Brian, I am so sorry to hear of this sad news and your loss (again). It's a parent's most heartbreaking sorrow to outlive a child - unthinkable to lose another three years later.

No words could sufficiently comfort you and your wife, but let me offer the words of the Apostle Paul as he was staring at his own imminent mortality:
7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8 Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.

The Lord comfort you in this difficult time, my friend, and know that all of us at TDIClub stand by you.

Thank you all so very much for your kind words. This place and all the friends I have made along the way help make this very painful experience much better. I knew the day would come when both my boys were gone, but there is no amount of preparation that can soften the blow. Our house feels so empty right now. My wife was pregnant with Noah when we moved in our house in September of '98, and he came along in May of '99. So we've really barely known the place without him.

Hopefully somewhere he is playing with his little brother again.

Brian and Lisa, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your other son. As you said, hopefully the boys are running and playing together in a way that neither could while on this earth.

My prayers are with you, Kent

SO, SO sorry to hear this!

The tragedy of your family having to deal with this multiple times is heartwrenching.

I haven't met Brian in person but almost feel I know him from all the wonderful help and knowledge he has shared with us over the years.

Thoughts and prayers with your family during this time.

Sorry to hear about this Brian and Lisa. Makes all this car stuff seem insignificant compared to family and friends. Peace be with you.

Brian, so sorry to learn of the loss(es) you and Lisa have had. Our prayers and heart go out to you and your family.
This is the TDI Club, a place to share experiences & ideas, ask for help, etc. Welcome Newbies! Sarcastic and condescending posts shouldn't be welcome.

Exact same sentiment from me. I'm sorry for the delay, I just found out. It crushes my heart to learn this. Brian is such a selfless individual to start with, so generous and kind (under that funny sarcastic exterior)

So sorry for your loss. Love you man.
