Thank you for sharing this with us. We are all on different sides of the world, but we all share the same passion that makes us as a family: Aviation. Those not inside this industry, real or simulated, will never understand how simple the sound of an engine can bring us together and at our best.

Wow - I don't visit these forums as often I used to due to real life time constraints, but I am glad I came across this tonight.   All the best and God bless my friend.   This is a very different take on how realistic our PMDG simulations are.   Take care and all the best for the future!

All I can say is.....wow! This was not at all what I expected seeing the 747-8 thread. Like most of the others, I was in shock at reading your touching story about your daughter. And seeing her picture has left me sitting here at the computer, thinking about my own daughter (who I haven't seen or heard from in years...my ex's fault here). I can understand the feelings of loss, but could never grasp those of losing a child. My heart, thoughts, and prayers go out to you and your family. Take care of your family and get well. We have reserved a gate for ya, when your ready to return to the virtual skies! And with that, I leave you with this little prayer i came across:

"Lord, We come to you now for our fellow aviator. We come to you to ask that you provide them strength and comfort in this time of deep need. Their hurt and grief run so deep. We feel so much pain for them, but we can only imagine how hard this time must be for them. We pray that you help them maintain their faith in you during this difficult time.

We know you can be our greatest shoulder, but we also ask that you remain their biggest provider. It is a time when daily life can be so burdensome. Please provide patience from others as they work through their grief. Surround them with understanding so that they can work through all the emotions this loss brought up. In this time when so many things get lost - bills need to be paid, homework needs to be done - allow those around them to help keep regular life on track.

And Lord, allow us to be a comfort to our friend. Help us be what they need during this time. Provide us with the comforting words, the kindness in our hearts, the patience to allow the grief to take it’s course. Let us be part of your light and comfort during this time.

We pray these things in your holy name. Amen."

This is stunningly beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing it, and thank you for your kind words.

I am just truly moved by all the thoughtful replies I have gotten in this topic, and it has filled me with a huge admiration for the time and consideration that all of you have brought to your replies.

I am sorry to hear about the sad separation that your ex has caused between you and daughter. I can only truly wish that she will change her mind about that, because that is a most unnecessary cruel thing for her to do.
