Very sorry to hear.

Lou, this is terrible news.  As a cyclist, I'm always aware of the possibility that a car might hit me.  But it never is tangible until it either happens to you or to someone you know.  And then it is tragic, like this.  I'm deeply sorry for your loss.

They mentioned this tragedy on our local Durham, NC news last night.  I didn't realize that Lou's family had local connections in this area.   She actually went to high school in Chapel Hill.  Anyway, folks out this way have been notified of the situation.  More people down this way are praying for your family Lou.

Below is a link to the local News and Observer story..

There isn't a parent around who doesn't weep when they imagine for even the instant the loss of a child. There is nothing that can be said that will ever adequately assuage your grief. May peace, love, and grace find their way to you and your family, Lou.

Lou, My heartfelt condolences to you and your family - I know I can't imagine what this must feel like.  I only know you through these forums, but you've always seemed like a mensch.  Please accept my best wishes.  May  peace come to your family when you're ready for that.

Lou,

 

There is no way that I can ever imagine the width, depth, and intensity of your grief and your family's grief.  I only hope that these messages will give you a bit of comfort and light in these dark hours.

I'll add this here, since the system won't allow me to add it to my original thread post due to the time lapsed.  Since Lou will probably not see this thread for at least another six to eight weeks, I'm posting the body of an email I just received from him as I am certain he would want to thank everyone here for their condolences.

 

To everyone who called, sent notes or flowers, or came to visit on Sunday, thank you, you can't know how much your friendship and concern means to us. If I didn't get to visit with you on Sunday, please accept my apologies, friends just kept coming.

 

Sandy and I will be leaving Friday and will return around August 8th. She will then be leaving immediately for a one-week tour of the Oregon coast and I may accompany her. I won't have time, or even internet, for the next 6 weeks to thank everyone who wrote, called and came out for us, so I have to do it briefly here.

 

Many of you have asked about places to make a donation in Becca's name. We thank you and ask for your patience, something will be in place shortly, most probably to help para athletes directly or for para sport research at the University of Calgary Human Performance Lab.

 

Finally, sometime in September we will be having a party in Okotoks in her honour, and everyone will be invited.
