    I'm sorry for you and your wife.

    I went through the same experience a number of years ago and it was a very difficult time.

    Better days are ahead for you and your family.

    Dammit. Dammit. I saw something on FB last night and I was afraid for the worst. As hard as it is on you, it is really tough on your wife. Be there every step of the way for her.

    Chris I have never met you, and I read this news last night. I wanted to sleep on it to try and come up with something intelligent to say, and I have nothing, because cruel events like that make no sense. I'm sorry for your loss, and I prayed for you and your family in my prayers last night.

    very sorry for your loss. my wife and i lost a baby at 20 weeks about 4 years ago. the toughest part for me was seeing how much it affected my wife. after a while, though, the wounds heel and you move forward. prayers to you and your family.

    to bring this back full circle, we were able get pregnant again about a year later with a due date of June 24th (figured i was safe for race day). Well, the little one came a month early and was born on May 24th, race day Sunday. first race i had missed in 30 years. i will always have memories of watching the race on TV while my wife was in labor. it was a true balancing act. Juan Montoya won his second and a baby girl was born a few hours later.

    My parents lost what would have been my middle brother years ago so I can understand your pain. Thinking good thoughts for you and your family.

    I always have trouble with condolences because everyone else has said it better than I could.

    But, assuredly, my condolences to you and your family as well.

    I'm very sorry for your loss. My wife and I went through this a couple times between our two daughters, and each time it was wrenching. As Spike said, better days are ahead.

    So Sorry to hear the news. The loss of any child is unimaginable. I lost an unborn child many, many years ago and there's not a day I don't think about what the world missed. Time will heal.

    Chris,

    I am sorry for your loss. Many of us have been in your same position and I can only say that it sucks; it really, really sucks! My only advice would be to focus on your wife and the future.
