    Looks like life hit Sylvester Stallone pretty hard. My condolences. Losing a child, even an adult child, must be the worst feeling ever.

    My "child" turned 29 yesterday. He's an adult, runs a business, yada yada. He's still my child, my only son. His death would devastate me beyond description. I guess what I'm trying to say is adding "even an adult child" is not needed. Losing a child must be the worst feeling ever. Condolences to the Stallone family.

    I disagree.

    If I knew I allowed my child to go on a trip with Jerry Sandusky might be worse.

    I watched my aunt and uncle lose their daughter (22 at the time) about 15 years ago and they've never even come close to getting over it.

    Sly and his family are in my prayers.

    I had a friend who lost her son, then her husband and on the day prior to her husband's funeral, got a call from the doctor who said her tests results were in.....the spot on her brain was a tumor. All of this within a year.

    My apologies. I didn't mean "even an adult child" as something that would lessen the sting. Of course it doesn't.

    Jesus. My pity party just came crashing to a halt.

    I'm so sorry for your friend.

    No apology needed, I know you didn't mean it like that. I just wanted to be clear. A child is a child even when they aren't.

    I never thought I would spend a moment thinking about "Sage Stallone" but I certainly have today.

    This day is my son's birthday. A milestone birthday at that. The cool, eager-to-please kid is fading with each passing day... slowly replaced by a curious young man who doesn't accept everything I say without question anymore.

    I try not to think about what it would be like to bury a child -- but, in our business, we see it all the time. Doesn't make it any easier and those are the only stories (the death of a child) that plague my dreams.

    Prayers to anyone on this board who has experienced this.

    The latest is he had been dead for three or four days when he was found by a housekeeper. Eek.
