I'm so sorry for your loss. I know no words can mean anything now, but I hope you can feel the love and strength from all the people who were touched by your wife's beautiful spirit.

Sincere condolences to you, your son and your families, from a faithful (silent) reader of your blog, of Amanda's blog and especially of Pajiba.

I have just made a donation to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in Amanda's memory.

There is really nothing I can say to express how sad I am for Amanda's family and friends. I just want to support them at this time. We are all experiencing incredible loss, but Heaven is so blessed to have this beautiful spirit there with God, Jesus,the Holy Spirit,and the angels. Amanda was a blessing to everyone who met her.

I'm so sorry for you and your son and the rest of your family. I knew Amanda from Pajiba, and was constantly in awe of her strength and her humor. You're all in my prayers today.

Atleast you have a beautiful legacy created from her to love and cherish as you did her.

I lost my mother to cancer in June. There are no words. I am so incredibly sorry.

I've been following her blog for over a year now. I can hardly believe it.

I wish I could think of something to say besides how sorry I am.

She will be missed.

I've been following Amanda's blog for quite awhile now and she, you and little A have been in my prayers. I am so sorry for your loss and will continue to pray for your strength and peace in the days to come.

I am standing upon the seashore.
A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze
and starts for the blue ocean.
She is an object of beauty and strength,
and I stand and watch until at last she hangs
like a speck of white cloud
just where the sea and sky come down to mingle with each other.
Then someone at my side says,
" There she goes! "

Gone where?
Gone from my sight, that is all.
She is just as large in mast and hull and spar
as she was when she left my side
and just as able to bear her load of living freight
to the place of destination.

Her diminished size is in me, not in her.
And just at the moment
when someone at my side says,
"There she goes!"
there are other eyes watching her coming
and other voices ready to take up the glad shout
"Here she comes!"

I'm sure you know how much we love her over on Pajiba. There is nothing adequate to say today. Please copy all of these posts and hers and keep them for your son. When he is older he will want to know what his mother was like as an adult and believe me this will help. He will know her thoughts and the fact that there was a universe of people literally spanning continents who admired and loved her.

I am so upset over your loss! Although I did not know Amanda, I read her blog and so appreciated her strong sense of self, humor and love of life and her family. I pray that you will continue to see her shine through your son. Take care and know that you are in many people's hearts.

Adrian, ich wollte mein herzliches Beileid für Dich und little A. hier hinterlassen. Ich kannte Amanda über Pajiba (wo ich nie kommentiere aber immer mitlese) und habe ihren Kampf verfolgt und bin heute erschrocken.
In so einer Situation klingt ja alles falsch, aber ich wollte nur sagen, wie leid es mir tut.

Maureen said...

I'm so sorry. When I know the arrangements I will be in VA asap.

I know it's not much, not nearly enough, but I am so sorry for your loss. She will be missed.

I'm in shock. I am so very sorry. I'm praying for everyone.

jM said...

I'm so sorry. She was an amazing woman capable of touching people she never even saw.

Olivia said...

Adrian - we are praying for you and Alastair in this dark time. Words can't even begin to express how sad we are - she was an amazing woman. So strong all the way through - an absolute inspiration. My heart is ready to burst when I read all the posts from people here and on Pajiba - I am so proud of you all and so honored to call Amanda my friend. God bless you and your family.
