Tonya went to be with Jesus last night. Please continue your prayers, especially for her 9-year old son, my precious nephew.

We are devastated and heartbroken. Please, please pray.

    Sarah, this breaks my heart. I just hurt so much for kids who lose their parents and families who lose their loved ones. Lots of prayers coming!

    Sarah, I am so sorry to read this. My condolences go out to your entire family. May Tonya rest in peace. May our Blessed Mother wrap her mantle around Tonya’s son.

    Sarah, you don’t me personally, but I love reading your blog. Please know I have been praying since last night and am saddened for your family. I will include your sister in law in my Divine Mercy novena. God bless.

    Dear Sarah:
    I follow your blog, but you don’t know me.
    Accept my prayers for your family & a heart felt e-hug to you over the internet from Canada.
    May you find His grace & mercy sufficient…

    I love following your blog and was so, so saddened to read this post today. You, your family and your nephew are in my prayers. We will keep your sis-in-law in our prayers as we pray our Divine Mercy novena.

    Oh Sarah, God bless you, your family, and your dear, sweet, heartbroken nephew. May our tenderest Mother wrap you all closely in her mantle as you suffer. I will be praying, friend.

    Sarah… I was devastated this morning when I read your post. I never got to meet Tonya, but we had “talked” via facebook over the last few years. We shared stories and pictures of our littles. I am so glad for Tiff’s family that they were able to spend (what looked like in pictures) a wonderful vacation with Tonya and D before this tragedy… My heart is broken for D that his mommy can no longer wipe his tears or give him hugs, but we all know she will be watching over him forever. I am so sorry for her family, and ours, that she is no longer with us… All my love!!!

    I’m so sorry for your loss! I can’t even begin to imagine your grief. I didn’t see this until after we returned from Easter Vigil, where I had prayed for your sisterinlaw and your family. You all will continue to be in my prayers.

    Oh Sarah – I am weeping in shock here. I am sorrier than I can say – and here if you need me. I can’t even begin to imagine your pain and grief – my heart is with all of you, and sending love and prayers.

    Hello Sarah,
    Wanted you to know that our family will offer our Rosary and day for the repose of Tonya’s soul and for her little one, and the entire family. Lord Have Mercy!

    I’m so saddened to hear of this devastating loss to your family, Sarah. Praying for all of you during these difficult days. ((((Sarah))))

    Sarah, I’m so very sorry for your family’s loss. I will keep all of you in my prayers. May our Sorrowful Mother keep you close through this most difficult, sad time.

  14. says

    Sarah, I am praying for your family at this time of deep sorrow. I am especially praying through the intercession of John Paul II, who also lost his mother when he was very young, for your dear nephew. I am so, so sorry for this sudden and devastating loss.

    I’m so very sorry for your tragic loss. Your entire family will be in my prayers – especially your nephew.

    Oh, Sarah, I don’t know where I have been, but I am just seeing this. I am so very sorry. I know there are no words to ease your pain, but know that I am praying for you all.
    God bless you.
