My sincere condolences to the families of the victims. Absolutely heartbreaking.
There are 20+ parents who should soon watch their children open Christmas presents, instead they will have to attend a funeral. I am beyond words.

My sincere condolences to the families of the victims as well, I suffer with them as much as is possible....

They were babies. Babies!! I am sick to my stomach. My heart hurts.

My condolences to the family and friends, may the love they feel for those they've lost help them to heal. May those who were lost Rest In Peace.

There are no words adequate to deal with this atrocity - no adjectives severe enough or sad enough - anyone who is human has a broken heart today ....

There are no words. I just don't know what to say.

In the light of this far more serious tragedy, I feel strange posting this, but I thought you all might be interested in the follow-up of what I posted earlier on a different topic.

...We have a cat that's 20 years old now and whose health has been declining for the past year, but especially rapidly in the last couple of months. Each time I wake up, the first thing I do is check to see if he's still with us. He hasn't been eating, only nibbling on anything I offer him. For 19 years, all Christian got was dry cat food. Now I offer him in addition a variety of anything from the small "gourmet" canned foods to tuna fish in order to encourage him. And the weaker he gets, the more dependent upon me he becomes. I used to scold him because when I walked in the house, the dogs were all over me, but he would always go straight to the kitchen and begin demanding to be fed before showing any affection. Now he just wants to stay in my lap all the time. He's lost so much weight that petting him is like petting a skeleton. Poor old guy. They really can get under your skin, despite your best intentions....
Two nights ago, I saw Christian get up off the bed and into a clothes basket. That's where I found him yesterday morning. He was a good cat. Here's a Christmas picture of him and his best friend Cain, whom he out-lived by several years.

Oh Tom, I'm sorry. (((Hugs)))) He was your family, there is nothing to feel weird about. This was a personal loss for you.

So sorry Tom - I share your hurt - our four legged family members are loved as much as the two legged variety. Hugs too!

My sympathy too, Tom. At least he slipped away quietly in his sleep and you didn't have to make a decision to have him euthanased. That was a good way for him to go, but the sadness of losing him will be with you for a while.

I'd like to light a virtual candle for the 5 year old girl struck and killed by a garbage truck yesterday while walking home after school in Toronto. I don't know her but as a parent it's very hard to hear stories like this. Especially when I have 2 sons walking to and from school every day. My deepest condolences to her family. Her mother is expecting another baby any day now.
