Beyond the Stereo: Stuck in My Head

« A Prayer | Main | No regrets. »

July 14, 2008



Awful, awful news... God how I wish I could help you... may God's comfort and presence be made known to you, sustain you, and keep you...

I am so sorry.

Louis (Duce)


Your strength through this is absolutely amazing. I can't even begin to comprehend what it must have been like going through this. As I've said previously, don't hesitate to ask if there is anything I can do. Love you lots.


Rick at Brutally Honest posted a link to your personal tragedy. My heart felt condolences and prayers to you and your family.

Your well written articulation of how tragic this was and is, touched my heart. Love transcends all and your love will sustain you. That and God's love.

My prayers are that the joy and love that you shared can with time overcome the pain of the immediate present.

God loves you. Seek his love and comfort. And wrap yourself in the love of a husband that has not been diminished by death and will always be with you.

Rodney Olsen

I have no words to express my feelings right now. Thank you for having the strength to share this dark time with us. I hope that the prayers and support of fellow bloggers will be of some comfort.


Words cannot express how sorry we are to hear this tragic news! Our hearts go out to you and hold you up in prayer.

Deb & Tom Henderson


I am so sorry this horrible thing happened to you.

It's what we all fear happening.

I wish it hadn't happened to you guys.


Although words are truly insufficient to express a loss so great, the following lyrics have comforted me in the loss of Nicholas, my son:

May the angels welcome you to Paradise, may the martyrs greet you on
your way, may you see the face of the Lord this day, Alleluia, Alleluia.

Saints of God, come and lead you, to the Holy City, the new and eternal
Jerusalem, Alleluia, Alleluia.

They will all come out to meet you, in the kingdom of God, where Lazarus
is no longer poor, Alleluia, Alleluia.

I am the resurrection and life, they who put faith in me will have
eternal light and peace, Alleluia, Alleluia.

-- "This Day in New Jerusalem", by James Bessert

May Christ come and lead your beloved husband to the new and eternal Jerusalem.


Oh, songstress. I am so so sorry. You are in my prayers.

Shane Vander Hart

I'm so sorry for your loss, and will be in prayer for you.


Words are so inadequate right now. My heart goes out to you, and you are in my prayers. May God surround you with His love and comfort.

(I'm here from Rodney Olsen's blog.)


I'm over from Rodney Olsen's blog...I'm so sorry. Words are never enough, I know, but my thoughts are with you and your family.


I am so sorry for your loss.


My deepest and most sincere condolences on your loss. May God provide comfort to you and your families.


I am so sorry about the loss of your love. I can't imagine how you must feel. May God bless you and your family.


I am so sorry to hear this for you.


Rick at Brutally Honest linked me here.

Words. Fail.

My prayers for strength and comfort at this horrible time.


SarahK linked... I'm sorry for your loss. He sounds like a great guy. I hope my Dad gets to show him around up there.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord...


I am so sorry for your loss. I was a member of his mom's church for years. I will be praying continuously for you and your family. He was a wonderful musician and you could tell what a huge heart he had when he sang.


SarahK linked ... my condolences.


Saw SarahK's link and came over. I'm so sorry for your loss and will keep you in prayers.


I came over from Rick's place (Brutally Honest.)

I hope my broken heart at hearing your story will somehow lighten the burden you and your loved ones are carrying.

May the all-sufficient grace of God and the Peace that passes understanding be yours through our Lord Jesus Christ.



Anything I try to say here just sounds really trite. You and your family are in my prayers, and if there's anything that I can do, just ask me.


I came over from Rodney Olsen's blog. I am so sorry to hear about your husband. I've never been through anything like this and hardly know what to say. But I do want you to know you have our heartfelt prayers that God will sustain you through all this. I pray he will give you peace that passeth all understanding.

LS from PA

Dear Songstress, May God comfort you and surround you with love and the blessed assurance that your beloved is in the arms of the Beloved Lord. Your writing painted the details from your heart to ours. I weep with you. And pray for you. from my soul's deepest love, linda in PA

Denni, none of my words would ever be able to express my heart felt sorrow...I pray with each passing day God will continue to give you strength to make it through this, may God cover you with his love and peace during this time. Amen. Jason was seriously one of my best guy friends and I will miss him dearly. I will ALWAYS be here for you babe! Whatever you need I'm a phone call away. I love you so much!!

Paul & Angela Sanmarco

We were so sorry to hear of your loss. You and your family are in our prayers.

Chris Gonzalez

I am sorry to hear what happened. Jason was first rate, an all-around good-guy. He was the perfect match for you. And a good friend to me.

We will keep you in our prayers.

Doug in L.A.

I was lucky enough to have worked with Jason at GoldMine, years ago, and shared a cubicle with him (see linked photo) for a time.
He was one of the most genuinely nice guys I've ever met. Despite distances, I've enjoyed his friendship, insight and sense of humor all these years via instant messenger and on my infrequent trips to Phoenix.
I can't believe he's gone like this. He was one of the good ones.


I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you and your family.


I love you so much, Denni. And I loved Jason. You are family to me, and I am so sorry that I can't be there with you in this time. Please know that we are praying for you and crying with you and rejoicing with you for the love you shared with your "Hunny-Bunny". Love you and miss you....

Cindy Hayes

Hello, I wanted to tell you how truly sad I am for your loss. I went to HS with your hubby. I am greatful to have known him as my friend. I hope God grants you peace and comforts you in your time of sorrow and pain. He will be missed by many.


I came from Rodney Olsen's blog as well.
I admire your strength, I hope you can keep it. I wish you all the very, very best. Hope your broken heart can heal a bit.

Deane - Friend of George

George Grund told me about what happened and gave me the link to what you wrote. I am sooo sorry. I went through something lioke this when I was 13 with my father and I can't tell you how sorry I am for your loss.

I wish you all the peace and love in the world and just know that your friends and family are there for you.


I am so so sorry for your loss. Keep God close, he will carry you through this. Jason will be waiting for you with open arms.

Daniel (Syracuse, NY)

Wow. I heard about this from Warren Kelly's blog (View from the Pew) and I am so, so sorry. Anything I say will sound trite. Wow, I'm so sorry.

My wife and I will be praying for you, that God gives you strength for today and hope for tomorrow. Again, I'm so sorry.

Kathie M. Thomas

I saw comment about this blog at Rodney Olsen's site and I'm reading this waiting for my husband to come home. He's late and he doesn't answer my SMS message to him. Naturally I'm worried. But I keep thinking someone would call me if something's happened and perhaps he's left his phone at work. I hope so. So sorry to hear of your loss and I pray you have lots of family and friends to stay around you - even as the weeks past. I do know what it's like to lose someone close to you. Bless you.

Shaun McGough

I worked with Jason and Josh at GoldMine, right before he moved out to AZ. I feel almost too awful to type this note, but let me assure you that Jason will not be forgotten in the GoldMine community.

Aunt Wanda

I am Sarah's (from Mountaineer Musings) Aunt Wanda. I am so very sorry for your loss. I will keep you in my prayers, along with the rest of your family through this very difficult time. I sounds like you and your husband have a great faith. May that keep you strong, and lift you up in the days and weeks to come. May God bless you and keep you strong in the faith.


I followed a link from SarahK's blog. I am so very sorry for your loss. This song really helped me in a trying time in my life. I offer it to you.

May the Peace of Christ remain with you during this time. You are in our prayers.

-- Tim


I am so, so sorry to hear of your loss. Thank you for having the strength to share your story with us.

I am thankful you are surrounded such warm and loving family & friends. I hope their presence is some comfort to you.


The last words My Love said to me were "I can't believe this".
We fought cancer for the better part of a year.

I'm sorry for your loss.

George Grund IV

D. In my life I have been blessed by wonderful friends and a loving family. J has always had a place in my heart as both. Whether we were singing, gaming, working or goofing around; he always brightened the area with his cheerful smile and loving heart. I grieve with you, your family and his, as well as your church while being comforted that he has been carried across the Jordon into the open arms of our Lord and Savior. I am sure Jesus has already told him, "Well done my good and faithful servant".


Dear Denni,

I worked with Jason at GoldMine and didn't know him very well, but I want to express my sympathy and thoughts are with you and your family.
May you find comfort in the memories and peace knowing he is always with you. Take good care.

Brian in Fresno

Songstress7, you are in my prayers. The only connection we have is that we are both long time friends of the Thinklings but that is a great connection.

May the Lord be with you.



I am here from Thinklings. I am so sorry. I am thankful that you were with him.

Jenny in Los Angeles

I came here through the Thinklings blog.

I am so sorry -- that you have to experience this loss, that so many of your hubby's loved ones will also have to experience this loss, and that sin and death ever came into this world to begin with. But I rejoice in his homecoming and reunion with his savior, and look forward to meeting both of you in the presence of God someday.

You are in my prayers.


I came over from the Thinklings sight. I am sitting at work, trying not to cry -- thinking how I would have felt or reacted if that had been my wife. Anything else would sound ridiculous and we Christians love to say ridiculous things at a time like this. I won't do that.

Troy Robinson

I am deeply sorry for your loss. I knew and worked with Jason back at Goldmine. A great man he was, I know he was loved and will be missed by all.

This is the first time I read this. I had no idea. I am so sorry. I can't even begin to imagine. Two years later, you've had a blink of time to begin healing--praying for God to keep soothing your heart and strengthen you for the life ahead.
