Jennifer Hudson - Our Thoughts Are With You

Sometimes in looking at the famous people on TV, we forget that they are people just like ourselves dealing with everyday life just as we are. Just early last week, Jennifer was on a show discussing how her life couldn't be better: number one single, cd's, movies, awards and a marriage proposal! She couldn't have wanted anything more. Now suddenly, her life has been forever changed: her mother, brother and possibly her nephew all killed...

What do you say to someone who has had, seems like everything, stripped from them? Do you say "Sorry for your loss" or "Our thoughts and prayers are with you" or "God, be with you and your family during your time of sorrow". All of that looks good and sounds good, but is it enough?

I remember when my cousin was killed a couple of years ago and I didn't know exactly what to say to my Aunt. It seemed like nothing that I would say could take that hurt from her. People say, just being there for someone is enough - they know you care. I agree with that, but is that even enough...

Whether it is enough or not I will not know, but I do want to say "Our Thoughts Are With You!"

I agree. It is a horrible thing to lose someone close, even worse to lose 2, possibly 3 at once. Nothing said will take the pain away. Only time can do that, though never fully. The support expressed will still be appreciated. Hopefully, all the condolences will serve as a reminder that there are still caring people out there. Our thoughts really are with ya!
