Heart Broken for Will Reeves



Why do I feel so sad? Especially for her son who lost 2 parents in less than 18 months. When I heard the shocking news of Dana Reeves death it took the happiness out of my heart. I feel so bad like she was a close friend of mines. I guess because I really admired her. She was an amazing woman.

I wanted her to experience a new rebirth, plenty of joy and much happiness as she started her new life without her husband the late Christopher Reeves. Who am I to say, maybe she did? There are not many women who would have stood so faithfully with their husband at his time of need. Or at least I don't know any. I had one friend whose husband took ill and he pushed his wife away because he did not want her to see him living in a nursing home in thirties, slowly deteriorating. He broke her heart. She tried to hold on but it's hard when you are rejected, and cursed out every time you went to see him. So that's why I admire this love story.

Who was Dana? She was a singer-actress who married Christopher, the tall handsome star of the "Superman" movies. After being married for three years he suffered a spine injury when he was tossed off a horse. Dana devoted herself to his care and his cause after he was paralyzed. She was 44.





That was too young when she had sacrificed so much. I wanted God to continue to bless her but I guess he did. I didn't know her. It just hurt to see her die only 18 months after her husband. Christopher died in October 2004.What a blow! What a heartbreaker for their young son. I read somewhere that she planned for his future and left him with loving relatives and friends. She was such an inspiration.This love is to you Dana for being a strong beautiful woman. You did what God wanted you to do. Then he came back to get you. Rest in peace..........

Oh yes this is terribly sad. I still haven't gotten over Christopher's death. I loooooved him! I loved him since the Superman movies. I used to have a big crush on him. I had no idea he'd gotten so bad before his death. I didn't know he was having additional health problems besides what he was already going through but he was. I thought they were able to help his wife but I see it was too late. I am sure Will is strong. I don't underestimate his strength. Kids deal with the death of parents all the time and I admire how they seem to hold their heads up despite this. Look at Princess Di's kids. I mean, the boy is strong. I could tell that when Christopher died. He will be okay and he has family around that's there for him. I am sure he probably knew that his mother wasn't going to make it when she got to her final days. He will of course be in pain but I have a feeling he was prepared for it. I know he'll be okay. It will make him even stronger in life if anything. I always wondered if he would follow his father's footsteps into acting. I would support him big time if he did. Great post, Rose!

When she announced that she had lung cancer, in my naivete I thought that she would be okay. I feel so bad for her son. I believe that he inherited his mother's strength and will be able to persevere.

This was a great and powerful post. When I learned of her death, I took it personally and very hard as well. Like you, afterall she had been through, I was hoping for her a renewed life full of joy and happiness. Their's was an amazing love story. I heard someone say this about their love: 'they were two lights of love that just HAD to be together.' That's how I look at it. There is no doubt in my mind that they will be reunited. And I do feel for their son. What a loss to lose such amazing parents -- but their blood runs through his veins, so I'm sure his amazing light will one day shine as theirs did!

It is a sadness that many of us are experiencing. I recall when I was a teenager, my neighbor took in her neice and newphew because their father died of cancer and then a year later their mother died of cancer. I couldn't phathom what it was like for them, but made myself a constant in their lives. I just cannot imagine what this young boy is experiencing....and in the not-so-private world of the limelight.

Yes, that is indeed tragic news. My heart goes out to that young boy. Being an orphan so young must be so difficult. I think this really reminds the rest of us not to take our living parents for granted.

It is weird that her death has affected a lot of folks. But for me it was her dedication to her husband that endeared her to me. She never seemed like she was trying to take advantage of being in the spotlight.

I do feel for their son. I know he must be hurting. Hopefully he'll be able to heal from the tragedies in time.

I also feel very sad for this young man. He has to deal with living the rest of his life without the two people that matter the most.
