What dreadful news. Love from way out west to you and to reap’s people.

We’re a little out of the way but If we can be of service in any way whatsoever, please holler up.

Kath ... I saw the title of this thread and felt a chill .. I read your post and wanted to SCREAM at the unfairness of it all. I am so sorry for your loss and wish to express sincere condolences. I know that Reap lives on in your heart and for all who knew and loved him as well as the lives that he's saved with his untimely death ... can't say any more than to send love and hugs. I'll light a candle for him as soon as I finish this post.

If love could've saved you, you would've lived forever.

Jesus God, kath...I'm so sorry. Dammit, that's just not fair. You guys were lucky to have each other.

To have a life cut short like that, deeply tragic. My heartfelt condolences, Kath, I know that Reap will live on in you and everyone else touched by his kindness.

Oh no, kath.

You know - there’s been a little corner of my heart that’s been with you every day since Erin, the Beezle passed. I think that’s true of everyone here. Watching someone (even someone you know only from these electronic environs) go through a grief unimaginable to most, has a way of placing that person deep in your heart and your concern.

So my first thoughts are - ‘this just isn’t fair’ and ‘pick on literally ANYONE else.’ As if I had any say or any sway. So all I’m left with is to tell you that this human being 2000 miles away from you is sending out his love - as is everyone here. We’re here, and we’re willing to listen and walk with you through this in whatever way this strange online paradigm allows.

As I think you know, I started working in hospice about eight years ago. You may not have known it, but you were one of my teachers as I was getting a footing in my new work. It seems unfair that you should have to teach any of us again. But I guess that’s not ours to decide.

Much love to you, and to the memory of reap. Based on what I knew of him here, he struck me as a lovely guy. You were lucky to have had him, and I know he was lucky to have had you. Now you’ll carry him with you. When you’re ready, tell us stories and we’ll carry him too.

Oh dear, I'm in total shock here. It was only a few weeks ago that I read Reap's posts during a sync listen. He seemed a perfect partner for you and your post confirms it. I am so sorry for your tragic and unexpected loss. Stay strong or whatever you need to do to get through the coming days. XOXO

I'm heartbroken to learn this, kath.

You won't be surprised to hear it, but - even from afar - what I saw of your relationship online filled me with the very best type of envy, and I suspect I'm not the only person who has that feeling.

All of my love and support,

Dear Kath,

I’m shocked and saddened at this terrible news. I remember reading how you got together and saw on the sync listens how in tune and happy you were together. That he has been taken from you at such a young age is heartbreaking.

RIP Reap.
