Although we will never meet, I pray that God comforts you in this time of sorrow. Your son will always be with you until the day you see him again. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. Good luck with the marathon and remember that Jack loves you.

Parenting starts at conception, a baby knows your warmth, your voice, your heartbeats. Little Jack went to heaven cherishing his parents' love within his heart. One day you'll be singing the itsy bitsy spider song.

There are so many good people around us - because of Jack you're meeting many of them. His purpose on Earth. My sympathies.

It's amazing how one little life can touch so many. Children are amazing people.

My sympathies and prayers. This was such a special story.

It was such a sad story and I feel for the couple. Is that all you can worry about is Mr. Koonz's writing style? Oh yeah and I'm sure you are just a genius!

My heart aches for you. I am so very sorry for your loss. Please know that you are NOT alone, we too lost our son in the later stages of my 3rd trimester. His heart stopped beating as well. I completely know the pain you are both feeling, it is immeasurable.

Remember that it takes "a little darkness for us to see the stars, and a whole lifetime to reach them". Don't give up.

Ali & Mike -

Your story made me cry. We lost a niece to SIDS 4 years ago. The loss effects the whole family but we are also pleased with the special time we had with her. It's true that these little precious babies that leave us too quickly can leave quite a legacy behind with the rest of us. We have never forgotten her and never will.

Last year we ran our first half-marathon at Hartford and ran for the CJ Sids alliance. I remember crying at mile 11 but also feeling like I had done something in a positive direction. This year, hubbie is doing the marathon and I will again run the half. Please let us know if you are participating in any charity for your run.

Run Strong.

God Bless.

Good luck to you both, I have been there as well as some of my friends. THe feeling of loss is overwhelming at best at times and will gradually get better.I was fortunate to get pregnant shortly after and have the most awesome son now, He does not replace the loss of my daughter, but it sure helped. EVery year I celebrate her birthday privately as for me it is still very real. I too was able to spend a short time with my daughter after having her in the hospital and I treasure that. SOmetimes there are no answers, it just happens.

Thank you so very much to all of you who have expressed your condolences, thoughts, and prayers. To those who have experienced this type of loss or to those who have friends and family members who have lost children, our heart goes out to you. We appreciate you sharing your experiences and we really wanted to reply to all of you individually to express just how much we value your comments, however, to do that would kind of monopolize the site! Please know, however, that we read every post and your kind words are so important to our family right now. Thank you a million times. There are such wonderful people in this world! Wish you all the best,
Ali and Mike Scherer
