Strength and Hope...

My heart and thoughts go out to Montreal Canadiens General Manager Bob Gainey as he awaits to learn of the fate of his daughter Laura, 25. She was swept at sea off the deck of the 180 ft Picton Castle, a training vessel, on Friday during a storm off Cape Cod as it was on it's way to Grenada.

Rescue efforts are still underway. Both Canadian and US search and rescue teams have been deployed. Although she was not wearing a life jacket, she was dressed in foul weather gear, and is said to be an excellent swimmer. There is hope she may still survive the ordeal.

Mr Gainey and his family have been through their share of heartache when his wife Cathy died of brain cancer in 1995 at the age of 39. He has stepped down from his duties as GM indefinitely. Assistant general manager Pierre Gauthier has taken over his duties for the time being. Mr. Gainey has been joined by his other 3 children at his home in Montreal as they await news of Laura.

Updated Tuesday December 12th...

I am saddened to say, the search has been called off. My deepest heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Laura Gainey.

''No one's death comes to pass without making some impression, and those close to the deceased inherit part of the liberated soul and become richer in their humanness.'' - Hermann Broch

Love you all more than my luggage.

Hugs, smooches and gropes.

That is so sad and what a horrible time of year for it to happen. It would never be a good thing, but this time of year is hard enough.

Tears and many prayers for Bob Gainey and his family for their terrible loss.
