    A million words won’t help you heal.
    Our deepest condolences to those families and friends who have lost a loved one.
    We will light a candle each and every year to carry their memories on.

  62. “Don’t worry about the future. Or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubble gum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind, the kind that blindside you at 4 p.m. on some idle Tuesday.”

    I hope your tragic loss can at least be a light to those that worry to much to realise how lucky they are to simply “be”. Smile more, laugh more, love more and remember those that can no longer.

    Rest in peace

  75. My thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by the airshow crash: the families who have lost someone special, the pilot and his family, the emergency services working so hard in the rain to find answers, everyone who witnessed it happen from hillsides, roadside, and the showground, and even those of us who were waiting at home have been deeply affected by this event. May friendships and the community look after each of us as we find a new normal.

From witnesses of this awful tragedy to those who have lost a loved one and not forgetting those who helped with the wounded on the day and those who are providing ongoing help.

  82. My love and condolences stretch afar (from Michigan, USA), from one little Kiwi to a kindred friend who has, along with her family, lost a very important Man in her life. Words can not even measure you and your families loss. Our thoughts are with you always, may love and support from your family and friends strengthen you for the days that are to come and may you cherish and recall the happy memories to lift you up at times of need. xoxo

  83. Thoughts are with the families of the deceased and the missing, just hope as one family member stated “he is out of signal on his mobile” there is always hope. Stay strong!!!

  84. As indicated by several before, words are meaningless to those bereaved or affected in any way but perhaps the knowledge of shared feeling of tragedy is of some little support.

  85. My thoughts are with everyone who is suffering at this very difficult time. xxxx

  86. My thought are with all the families of those who tragically lost their lives.

  87. Complete and utter sadness at the loss of so many loved ones after this terrible accident. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to you all. May you all RIP..
    Not forgetting the brave survivors who will have to live with this terrible tragedy.

  88. My thoughts go out to all affected by this tragedy. I witnessed this horrific accident from the spectator’s area and as a pilot myself felt physically sick at what happened. I will always have to answer the upsetting questions about it raised by my innocent 4 year old son who like everyone else wanted to have a happy time watching the aeroplanes. No one should ever have to witness that first-hand and my thoughts are with the families of those dead and those emotionally affected.

    Stewart.

  89. Thoughts & prayers go out to all the families affected by this tragic accident.xx

  93. Truly saddened by this horrible accident that clearly proves how fragile we all are when it comes to death and how our lives depend on some unconscious decisions we make and tiny little coincidences.

    Nil from Ankara, Turkey

  94. My thoughts are with all those involved, including the work of the emergency services.

  95. RIP to all those who lost their lives in this tragic accident. Thoughts and prayers to all those bereaved and especially those who still do not know what has happened to their missing loved one. Thoughts are also with the family of the pilot and with all those members of the emergency services who have been traumatised by the things they have seen.

  96. Sending condolences from across the ocean on the loss of these beautiful men, young and old, together with hope for the healing of the pilot, all of you who have lost loved ones and all whose spirit has been diminished by this sad tragedy.

  97. Rest in peace. My thoughts are with all involved x

  98. My thoughts and sympathy to all those affected by this terrible tragedy.
