As parents of three sons who played hockey in their younger days, our heartfelt sympathy goes to all in Humboldt, especially parents and families connected to those involved in the tragic accident. We cannot imagine how anyone feels, as everyone tries to understand why. Our middle son wrote a poem a few years ago after losing a young friend. We hope it can bring some comfort to some at this very sad time. We feel it fits, no matter what age one loses a loved one.
Always the good die young
Life is never what it seems
Control is far beyond our means
Often those who do great good
Pass away before they should
But on this earth their spirits live
It’s up to us their love to give.
Again, our most sincere sympathy to all. Remember “Big boys don’t cry ---- Men do!” Never be ashamed of tears or showing emotion. It just shows you care. Our prayers are with you.
Sincerely, with aching hearts
