Please visit and leave any thoughts and prayers for our beloved kids who passed on 12.29.01 in Siberia. They were coming back from a snowboarding trip when they met with a terrible accident on a rural road. Their hearts and lives are remembered on the website (and in our hearts). Anyone who knew them are asked to stop by and leave a word or two. Thanks.

Thanks Sarafina: I was on all day today. Read some of your posts and comments too. I only do that once in a while but I wanted to get the vibes from people Piper's age, who are in the same place he was in before the accident. Also to bolster my own mind as I have a wife and 4 kids still in the family.

There is an old chinese story: The sorrowful man went to a soothsayer to find a way to relieve his sorrow at the loss of his child. The wise man told him if he would obtain a cup of rice from a household which knew no sorrow, then he would be cured of his grief. So on his journey he went knocking on door after door, only to discover everyone has encounter sorrow in their lives.

I don't know why but the great loss of life this Christmas week touches me that there are so many out there right now grieving over untimely deaths caused by the Tsunami. I am not alone. I read about your brother too and I am sorry. I wish you well too and thanks for your kind words. Say hi to your dad if you speak with him. I never met him but spoke with him a few times on the phone.

I love Piper, Ro and Seany so so much. I will never forget them for as long as I live! Thank you for the website. I feel grief when I look at their pictures (many of which I remember taking), but I also feel privileged to have known them and to have shared important milestones in our lives, most notably leaving TF. I owe them so much of my success.

Although I never met Piper, Rosita, and Sean, I had looked through the entire website before and was awed by their story and pictures and had frequently thought of their beautiful family. Then, just last night I was watching Dateline NBC's, "Sudden Impact: Drunk Driving - Revealing look at how far-reaching and devastating these crashes are for everyone involved", which was the story about a group of young people, out for a night of fun, that had been involved in a tragic accident when a drunk driver hit their vehicle and the focus of the story was a young woman named Lillie.

Throughout the program she had mentioned a sister several times as having helped in her prolonged and difficult recovery from the severe accident she had been in. Toward the end of the program, Lillie described a significant setback in her recovery that she had experienced when she heard the devastating news that her sister Rosita had been killed in an accident in Russia along with her huband and son. When I heard that part of the program, I logged back on to the website and my suspiscions were confirmed. Lillie was talking about Rosita, Piper, and Sean.

Today I took the time to go through the website again. I realize the family probably already knows about the story that aired last night but I just want them to know that all their families are in my thoughts. I wish them peace and strength as they continue to overcome any difficulties ahead. They will never be forgotten.

Thanks for sharing about Lillie and the Dateline thing. I didn't know they were running it again. I appreciate your thoughts and sharing your kind words and sentiments. (reply to this comment

I can't believe it's already been 2 years. I still find it hard to believe at times that they are really gone and I cannot imagine what it must be like for you as their parents, brothers, sisters, family.

Please know that we all fondly remember them and we'll keep their memory alive. Piper and Ro were wonderful people and I'm glad I had the honor of living, working and getting to know them during their short life.

I don't even know them and it made me cry.

As for man, his days are but as grass; as the flower of the field he flourisheth. And the wind passes over and is gone, and the place thereof shall never see it again.

Ain't that the truth. Blessings to all who grieve for them at this time and forever.

Thanks Sunny. Appreciate your words and sentiments. Today's the big day. The planets are in alignment, and somehow I feel at peace even though there's pain and still some pangs of loneliness.(reply to this comment

Although I never knew Rosita, I've heard wonderful things of her;Piper I had known since I was a little girl. Both are missed terribly, and I pray for their family and friends on this day. (reply to this comment
