Broken Hearts, Shattered Lives

Love Doesn't Die, People Do.
~Laure Janus

Beth, my beautiful, talented, wildly creative, and loved beyond measure 17 year old niece, took her life on March 16.  There are no words, only questions that will never be answered.  My head knows we will somehow survive and eventually move forward but my heart can't begin to believe it.  Right now we are just trying to breathe.  Please send kindness and prayers toward my family and all survivors of suicide.  When the world no longer makes sense, loving kindness helps people survive a living nightmare.  


  1. My mind is with you and your family...

  2. there are no words that express the hurt - saddest and disbelief in what has happened
    I pray God will guide you and hold you near his
    heart - if there is anything I can do - please
    don't hesitate to ask
    God bless you and the family


  3. Hugs, prayers, love and peace.

  4. Oh, Laure - my heart hurts for you and your family. My prayers are with you.


  5. oh how very very heart goes out to you and your family...there are no words...but hoping many hugs and memories get you thru this terrrible time....god speed...sending up some very special prayers for you and yours right now. feel the love.

  6. Laure, I'm so sorry and sad for you and your family. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. Sue T.

  7. Oh Laure, I am so very sorry. My heart goes out to you and your family. You are all in my prayers and thoughts. Bless all of you. Peace.

  8. Laure,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Lots of love to you.


  9. Laure, I don't even know what to say. I 'm reading mail so late today, and my heart just fell to my stomach. I can't even begin to know how you all feel, but please know I'm with you in spirit. I will pray for all of you.

  10. Laure, my prayers are with you and your family - it is so sad and you are right about no answers, somehow that makes it worse because everyone wonders why they didn't notice anything. It is beyond sad, there aren't enough words to expresss the sorrow.
