    Default Sad news...

    I noticed the following obituary in the paper today. Maybe someone can confirm that it is the daughter of EGSG. Our hearts go out to them.

    JENNIFER GEISSLER

    AUSTIN, Texas - Jennifer Geissler, 25, passed away April 28, 2007, in Austin, Texas. She was born in Bangor, to Edward Geissler and Laura McElroy.

    I saw that too. I assumed that it was Ed's daughter as he moved to TX. I hope they are getting through this very tough time OK.

    Sad news indeed. EGSG does stand for Ed and Sharon and they did move to Texas, so it must be them.

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to them.

    That is truly sad. She was my sons age. She was a beautiful girl. It brings tears to my eyes.

    I hope the family is finding comfort from their friends and family at this difficult time....

    Ed and Sharon will be in our hearts and prayers.
    Why not live life like it is your last day....instead of pretending to be a member of the Peter Pan Club and believing you will be around forever.

    Too many young people dying in the past few days. . .

    Ed and Sharon, you are in my thoughts.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to her entire family.

    There is no emotional pain that can compare to that of having a child die.

    I have this poem that I refer to often as it sometimes helps.

    The Tide

    The tide recedes but leaves behind
    bright seashells on the sand
    The sun goes down but gentle warmth
    still lingers on the land
    The music stops and yet it echoes
    on in sweet refrains...
    For every joy that passes,
    something beautiful remains.

    Sorry to hear. Our thoughts are with the Geissler's.
