I am so sorry this had to happen to your beautiful daughter and her little sons. I have no words to say that can comfort you other than those little ones are with their mother now wrapped in the arms of Jesus.

To the Coxes and the Graves, Debbie and Kiirsi; we are weeping with you tonight. Susan is with her boys tonight and that should give us all strength. Mitakuye Oyasin.

Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morningís hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft star-shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there; I did not die.

I am physically sick right now over this. He was pure evil. My condolences to all who loved Susan and her beautiful children! But, we know the boys are with her in heaven, Where he cannot hurt them anymore. May God bless those who will now have to continue on without them. Especially her parents, who have to be in so much pain right now. So very sad.:cry::cry::cry:

Cox Family,
There are no words to express how sorry I am for you loss. I wish I could take some of this pain away from you and it's my most sincere prayer that you can find comfort in the Savior and the knowledge that you will one day be reunited with your lovely daughter and grandsons who have touched so many lives. Your family has handled everything with the utmost grace and example and I just want you to know how loved you all are.

My Prayers to you and all who have lost so much,
Julie

To the Cox family -

Words cannot express the sadness I feel for all of you tonight. The only consolation I can find in my heart to express to you is that Susan is now holding her two precious boys in her arms once again, never to be separated.

May your faith in God sustain you through this most difficult time.

Rest in Peace, Susan, Charlie and Braden

To those who loved Susan and her boys:
May the Lord bring comfort and peace to you in the days, weeks, and months ahead as you grieve this unfathomable loss. No one should have to endure such earthly suffering, but we cannot determine what G-d has in mind for each and every one of us. I hope and pray that your faith and fond memories of Susan and her sons will sustain you during this very difficult time. :rose::rose::rose:

I believe that the boys have risen up and are now in the protective hands of God. They are back in the arms of their mother, and never again will be hurt.

My deepest sorrow to the Cox family, to the friends of Susan, to those that tried their hardest to prevent such an event. To the firefighters/rescue and the case worker, the ME and the Sheriff Department, all involved today in this horrible scene, may God watch over and protect you, and ease your pain.

I am so sorry for your loss...words just are not enough. I have cried many tears tonight, as have many others. There are so many unanswered questions here, but what is perfectly clear is that you loved your daughter and grandchildren with all your heart, and did everything you possibly could bring justice to this case. God bless you and your family. You are in my prayers.

My heartfelt condolences to Chuck, Judy, Jennifer, Kirk and all who loved Susan and her precious sons.

My family has suffered four losses within the past year, all from cancer, and two of them just last month. Two were gone within 2-3 months of diagnosis. It has been such a shock because all happened so quickly and one was only 51. Yet, I cannot begin to imagine the depth of the loss you are feeling right now. My heart breaks for you.

To Susan's family and friends - I am still so shocked and sick that I barely have words to offer my most sincere condolences, not only on losing your dear Susan but now your beloved Charlie and Braden. It's just not possible to comprehend the sickness that would cause this to happen. Please know that so, so many people have been thinking of you, praying for you, loving you, wishing they (we) could do ANYTHING to help. I am just so very sorry. My heart is breaking for you all.

My prayers are for you in this time of such intense sorrow. I hope you feel the touch of your higher power, especially at the times when you wonder where He may be.

I also pray that there will be a time when you begin to experience the sweet memories of your three angels more than the sad ones you are experiencing now.

Please know you are in the thoughts and prayers of myself and many, many others across the country. Iím not too good with words at times like these but I found this passage below and hope it may provide you some measure of comfort during this very difficult time in your lives.
"A loved one is a treasure of the heart and to lose a loved one is like losing a piece of yourself. But the love they brought you...did not leave, for the essence of the soul lingers. It cannot escape your heart, for it has been there forever.

Cling to the memories and let them find their way to heal you. The love and laughter, the joy in the togetherness you shared...will make you strong. You'll come to realize that your time together, no matter how long, was meant to be, and that you were blessed to have such a precious gift of love in your life.

Keep your heart beating with the loving memories and trust in your faith to guide you through. Know that though life moves on...the beauty of love stays behind to surround and embrace you. Your loved one has left you that...to hold in your heart forever."

I am so sorry. I am in shock, mad and angry and so so sad, as are a lot of people in the world tonight. Susan and the boys captured many hearts, and sometimes, while we may not understand, He does. God is in control. Susan is with her precious sons tonight. That is a comfort that I will hold onto. Many people are praying for you, your family and friends in this terrible tragedy.

I am so sorry for your terrible loss. I have no words that could take away an ounce of that pain but if I could bear some of it for you I would. I am praying for you and hope you know how much we all appreciate your brave fight for the children's safety and for justice for Susan. I hope you can still have Susan brought home. Please remember the children and Susan at their happiest times.

As a parent, and a survivor of family violence, my heart is absolutely shattered upon hearing about the senseless loss of these two precious boys, compounded by the loss of their beloved mother. The only small comfort is in knowing that at long last Susan holds her babies in her arms again. My most heartfelt condolences to Susan's family and friends and the entire community they left behind. My prayers are with you, and I stand in solidarity with you as you seek answers and action on behalf of Susan and her children.

One glance at Susan's photo and her warm, beautiful smile is all it takes to get a sense of what a great loss you suffered when she was taken from you. Losing Braden and Charlie coupled with the loss of Susan stretches far beyond anything I can imagine. I am so very, very sorry.

I have great admiration for the love and courage you've shown as a family. Please know that you are in the hearts and prayers of many other families across America who have followed your struggle over the past two years. May God bless you with peace and comfort.

My condolences to the Cox Family and Kiirsi.

The one saving grace in this awful incident is that I just know that not only was Susan there holding her boys during this explosion/fire but that I am sure their angels were surrounding them too. Now they are all together in Heaven and what a wonderful procession through those Pearly Gates into the arms of our Lord and his Blessed Mother.

Rest in Peace

I am sorry and ashamed to say that when I first heard about the death of your former son in law, I felt pleased he was gone. Then I learned that your darling angels were with him, and I was devastated.

I am so sorry for your loss, and can only pray that you will find peace and comfort in the future. We can't take away your pain, but please try to draw what strength you can from the love being sent your way.

No words that I can come up with convey my shock, sadness, or sorrow, nor do they seem adequate to convey any measure of comfort; so I'll just rely on these:

"The Lord bless you and keep you--the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious unto you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace."

Numbers 6:24-26

I am so, so sorry for your loss. My heart is so very heavy for you. Please let God wrap his arms around you and know that Susan, Braden and Charlie are with Jesus. Please let this be a comfort to you that the boys are with their mother. I will hold you in my prayers daily. So many people were behind you, the best grandparents, those little boys could have. Thank-you for taking care of them until they were back in the arms of their mom.

No Fear in Heaven

There are so many things in life that we can't understand,
like why a tragedy like this can happen in this land.
One moment life is perfect and the next it falls apart,
leaving us with nothing but an eternally aching heart.

Our souls cry out in agony amidst the suffering and despair.
We feel the pain and tear our clothes and scream "It isn't fair!".
Spirits are now shattered. Hearts will never be the same.
We grasp at straws and seek to find the one who is to blame.

Horrific as our life now seems, one thing remains quite true.
Our little ones have now been freed to do things angels do.
They can't recall the horrors of those last days they were here.
They remember not the terror, the hurt, nor the fear.

There is no fear in Heaven. No more sorrow. Only Joy.
It's filled with joyous laughter from each little girl and boy.
We can only try to imagine, in spite of all earthly wrongs,
our little angels are learning the words to the Angel's songs.

Amidst the children's laughter and their Heavenly play,
there's also more important work going on there today.
Jesus is building mansions, never taking time to sleep,
for Reunions are being planned, yes, even as we weep.

The children gather around Him and listen to Him speak,
for He has all the answers that they curiously seek.
He tells them for a time, in Heaven, they must wait,
and then they can meet us at Heaven's pearly gate.

My heart is breaking for you, thinking of your family and the unbearable, tragic losses you have suffered. No one should ever have to endure the pain of losing three such bright and beautiful angels from their life. I cannot even begin to imagine the depths of your grief.

On this most awful of all mornings, perhaps you can find the tinest bit of comfort in knowing your family is being loved and prayed for, by thousands and thousands of people, all around the world. On this most awful morning, and for many days to come, in every corner of this Earth, in churches, synagogues and mosques, Susan, Charlie and Braden's names are being spoken in prayer. They will never be forgotten, but cherished in sad memory. There are so many who care so much, and who grieve with and for you, and although it is impossible to lighten your grief, there are so many of us who would do anything to ease your pain.

The Good Lord must be all but deafened by the masses of prayers being sent up for your sweet Susan and those precious boys. I am so sorry, so terribly sorry for your losses. No one should ever have to go through all that you have, endure all that you have endured. I stand in awe at your bravery and strength as you suffered such nightmares

May god bless you all, and hold you always close in his love and grace.

My heart is heavy and my eyes are full of tears over a family I have never met, but feel such a deep connection to. My deepest sympathies to all family and friends affected by the acts of pure evil of this coward.

I am so terribly sorry for your loss. As a domestic abuse survivor, and a mama to 2 little boys, Susan is always on my mind. There are no words but please know that we are all so proud of you for fighting for your precious boys. I am sure Susan is so proud of you all. What an amazing family you are.

I'm in Washington state and if there is anything at all that I can do please let me know. Instead of feeling so angry, I'm trying really hard to come up with some things we can do now in honor of Susan and Charlie and Braden.

A reunion happened yesterday. Mama is back home. And two babies will be enveloped with pure love, joy and safety forever....

There are no words that will bring you comfort, provide the answers you so surely need or make sense of this tragedy in any way but hopefully there will come a time when knowing that you, your family, your daughter and her babies were loved and cherished by so many will bring a bit of peace to your heart.

As a community countless hours have been devoted to seeking justice for Susan and I have no doubt that countless more will be devoted to bringing her home to you. Josh will never face a judge here in this world for his crimes but this community will not stop seeking to uncover the truth and seeing that anyone else that may have been involved does pay. Nothing will bring them back to you or make up for the unimaginable pain that your family has suffered but if there is justice to be had we will seek it for you and rejoice with you when that evil can touch you no more.

In even just this one small place, there are so many people deeply saddened and heartbroken for you and the loss of your family members. Multiply that number by thousands and that wouldn't even begin to equal the number of people who are shedding tears because of this horrific loss. I wish for you solace and peace.

I don't know you, and I didn't follow this case, but I am so sorry for your loss. Just know that those boys were happy with you, and that you made a difference in their short lives on this earth. You should be proud of that, and proud of hard you fought for them and their mother. My thoughts, prayers, and condolences are with you and your family as you struggle through this nightmare. May God bless you and finally bring Susan home.

Along with everyone else here, I was horrified last night by the news of the loss of your grandchildren, who I'm sure have gone to join their mother and are being comforted in her arms.

My hope is that all of the family and friends who are in unbearable pain and sorrow now will also be comforted a little knowing there are many here and everywhere who are so very sorry this happened and are sending you thoughts of love, understanding and peace.

May the Father bless and keep you close forever.

Dear Cox Family, and to all of Susan and her beloved boys friends,
I am so very very sorry. I have been moved by Susan's story, and by the fight to save her precious boys. I have no words to properly express the depth of my sorrow at the loss of all three.
I pray that you all have angels in your lives who will be there to support you through the coming days. I will hold you in my thoughts and prayers.
God Bless,
Jenny

Edited to add, always know their lives mattered. To people all around the world. I pray that laws change because of this case to really protect children in this country in situations like this. It could be called Charlie and Braden's Law.

We will share that grief with you forever. I have to believe that those beautiful boys are with their loving mother now. That is some comfort, but I know you are overwhelmed with this loss.

Ecclesiastes 3
A Time for Everything

1 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

God bless those little boys, their mother, and the Cox family. I am so so sorry this happened to you.

To Chuck and Judy Cox and other Family and Friends of Susan, Charlie and Braden...

I send my most heartfelt thoughts and prayers. I am hoping that your belief that Susan is with her boys will sustain you and help give you strength. I am so shattered by what happened to Susan, Charlie and Braden. I cannot begin to understand the grief that you are feeling. The ripple of sadness is felt by many, adults and children alike.

I serve as a Guardian Ad Litem in Florida and I have seem a lot of sad and dysfunctional families and the effects that it has on innocent children. Please take comfort in knowing that Charlie and Braden were able to spend their last few months in your loving and stable home. They were such adorable and precious little boys.

I was a first grade teacher for 33 years and feel so sorry for Charlie's classmates and teachers. I am sure that they will forever be touched by their memories of Charlie. I am also sure that Braden friends will also hold his memories in their hearts.

My final prayer is:


Dear God...Please Bring Susan Home to Those That Love and Miss Her!

To the Cox family and all their friends, including Kiirsi and everyone who truly loved Susan and her darling sons, remember this: The incredible love that millions of people feel for you all, for Susan and Charlie and Braden, the love that is bursting in so many people's hearts from all over the world, that love is more powerful than evil ever can be.

You know your dear ones are together forever, safe and at peace, and that you will see them again one day. But not having them here, day to day, that is an anguish few can imagine. It is not fair, it is not right and it never should have happened.

And, while it can never be the same as having them here, in the flesh, I know that they are here with you, every day, and are surrounding you with their love and their light. Please, when the pain feels unbearable, reach out to them for strength. They will give it to you.

So many in the world are weeping with you, most of us never having met your beautiful family. So many in the world are feeling despair for you. And that is proof that evil did not win. Evil died that day that Charlie and Braden were murdered. But love, it continues on and on and on, in the hearts of so many who have hungered for justice for Susan, who worried about your boys, who felt anguish at the torture you were put through for so long, just because you were searching for the truth about your beautiful Susan and wanted to protect her darling sons. And, it continues on in the love you have for Susan and her babies and in the eternal love they will have for you.

Evil can only extinguish itself. Goodness and innocence cannot be destroyed. Susan, Charlie and Braden, they exist and always will.

God bless you. I hope you can find strength in the words of all of us who mourn with you and in your faith which guarantees your ultimate reunion.

Debbie, I watched an interview on one of the Utah channels where you were speaking. You brought me to tears. I just wanted to say, without your concern for Charlie and Braden and Susan, LE would never have gotten to the house so quickly. They would have never seen the wet spot in the carpet or the fans drying it. Your actions that morning set the tone for the case; you got the help needed at the right time to show LE there was a problem.

I am sorry that you have had to go through this; you are a strong woman, one I have much respect for. You are the meaning of the word sister-friend, thank you for being there for Susan. While you may think it didn't help, it did. The case is being investigated and there will be answers. Take care and hugs to you, Jacie.
