Stop The Search

Its almost 4AM, and my parents called me about an hour ago.

My Uncle Lloyd has passed away. They knew no details yet to tell me except that his body had been found.

Thank you all for your recent support, and anyone who may have helped, kept their eyes peeled, etc. My family at least now has some closure and we can properly mourn my Uncle's passing. He was a good Husband, a good Father, a good Uncle, a wonderful, loving, caring Person. He will be greatly missed. Although I'm sure now he's with my grandparents, his parents-in-law who loved him dearly, in as he put it when my Grandma Annette passed away "The Great Diner in the Sky."

Right now I am saddened and shocked and somewhat sleepy having been woken at 3AM, but all I want to say is this. In the Jewish mourners custom...

Yit gadal ve-vitkadash sh'mei raba b'alma di v'ra khir'utei v'yamlikh malklhutei be-hayekhon u-ve'yomeikohn u-ve-hayei d'khol beit Yisrael,
ba-agala u-vi-z'man kariv, v'imru amen.
Y'hei sh'mei raba m'varakh l'alam u-l'amei almaya.
Yitbarakh v'yistabah v'yitpa'ar v'yitromam v'yitnasei, v'yit-hadar v'yit'aleh v'yit-halal sh'mei d'kudsha b'rikh hu l'ela min kol birkhata v'shirata, tushb'hata v'nehmata da'amiran b'alma v'imru amen.
Y'hei sh'lama raba min sh'maya aleinu v'al kol yisrael, v'imru amen.
Oseh Shalom bi-m'romav, hu ya'aseh shalom alenu v'al kol yisrael, v'imru amen.

Hallowed and enhanced may He be throughout the world of His own creation. May He cause His sovereingnty to be accepted, during our life and the life of all Israel. And let us say, Amen.
May He be praised throughout all time.
Glorified and celebrated, lauded and worshiped, acclaimed and horored, extolled and exhaulted may the Holy One be, praised beyondall sond and psalm, beyond all tributeswhich mortals can utter. And let us say, Amen.
Let there be abundant peace from Heaven, with lifes goodness for us, and for all the people Israel. And let us say, Amen.
He who makes peace to his Universe will bring peace to us and to all the people Israel. And let us say, Amen.

Dear Carie:

I am saddened to hear the news about your Uncle. I knew your Uncle Lloyd and he was a GREAT guy as is his brother Al and his mother is a wonderful woman. This is a tragic day indeed.

My heart breaks for all of you and I have shed more than a tear over this. May God bless you and all your loved ones. I will be attending the Shiva and maybe I will see you there.

I went to high school with Lloyd and just found this post. Someone had just told me he tragically passed away. Does anyone know what happened?
