I too am thinking of and praying for Lucas's wonderful parents. They came into the shop at least twice when I was working and I told them what a wonderful son they had and how much I enjoyed working with him. (I don't think I was telling them anything they had not realized for quite some time.)

Their loss is (for many) beyond comprehension. The pain and grief sharp, at times severe and enervating. I hope they have close family and friends that can help them in all the ways they will need during this time. If I can be of any help, please let me know. Lynne

Edit: Thanks Baja Andy.

it's very true that this could have happened to any of us--it's just an unfortunate part of the game. Still, I'm very saddened to hear about this accident and making any sense of it may well be impossible. My condolences.

Don't quite know what to say. As Long and Rick have said, this could have happened to all of us at some point or another. Peace and condolences to family and friends.

Greg, Some of us here don't know you personally, only know you through your posts here, but even without that personal bond, I hope you can feel the love and support going your way.

Your friend's death is tragic, compounded by his so very young age. I am so sorry for the deep grief you are feeling. My deepest condolences to all his friends and family.

Take care of yourself,
Phyl

Sorry to hear about your loss. Sounds like he was tight with many great people here, and that you two had a deep partnership.

This embodies our greatest fears. I tremble to think of it happening with my good partners.

As others have said, I only know you and "the kid" from your posts, but I really enjoy them.
