    Same feeling here. I thought that I'd see my second LP show, this time with my girlfriend, and maybe even have the chance to meet Chester and the rest of the band for the first time.

    This has flipped all of our lives upside down. I can't even imagine what it's like for the rest of the band, Talinda, and their kids.

    You never know what you got until it's gone :(

    Things can change in just one second. Everything could be going perfect and then bam, all hell breaks loose.

    So sad and I still can't believe he's gone. RIP :(

    Perhaps in a credit to Chester, I've been making amends and mending some friendships that had become distant since news broke of his passing. It reminded me that we never know at all when our time is up, and that I can't spend my life being spiteful or holding grudges.

    I feel so bad for her and her kids. That part about their fairytale life turned shakespearean tragedy kills me. I hope they all find the strength to carry on.

    That's so heartbreaking, but beautiful. I'm sobbing again. Can't imagine what his family is going through right now. Also, I hope Sam and Draven are getting the support they need as well.

    As a parent, i cannot phathom the emotional turmoil this has brought to their children. This is something they will probably never recover from. Every day a reminder. Turning on the radio. Going on the internet....running into fans...This is an absolute tragedy.
    My hope, we as fans, do what is necessary to have the understand what the LP Family is all about. It isn't about one person...it's the community as a whole. It isn't about the negativity, tho we won't always agree...we are a nation of people around the world, sharing in out pain and sadness, our happiest memories andtime we share in our joy and laughter.
    Be kind to one another. Smile at a stranger. Say hello. Help someone in need. It doesn't cost a penny to show respect and kindness.

    Heartbreaking.

    Still hurts. Hopefully, in time, they can find peace.

    Each message they've sent today is beautiful, heartbreaking and shows how much each of them is hurting and it's haunting to even try to imagjne how the're feeling. We all know it's impossible and hope never to experience sth like this ourselves. Your whole life shattered in pieces in a second.

    So heartbreaking... We've all been suffering so much, I can't even imagine what it's like for her, the family and the band... They're in our thoughts too.
    I just know that we will remain together through all of this :')

    Beautiful and heartbreaking messages. I hope that all the love and support in and around the band as well as from all the millions of fans around the world can help keep the family strong and to somehow get through this tragedy. I wish them all the best for the future.

    It sucks that there's nothing anyone can do to erase Talinda and her family's pain. What they're going through I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.

    Stay strong, Talinda and kids! You're not alone. We're in this together.

    I'd read Talinda's statement earlier...
    Such a heart breaking statement... it the bit that hit me most was when she said "And I know that all of you will help keep his memory alive. " talking to us fans...

    This emotion and connectivity to the L.P. fan base is one of the huge reasons (apart from the fantastic tunes) why I have continued to follow them...

    Mike & L.P. on snap chat & Instagram.. . Allowing us access to them through these mediums, giving us a glimpse into their actual lives... made us feel closer to them as much as it could be..really gave that sense of closeness.... it's these glimpses I'll miss the larking around in the studio etc..

    I hadn't seen Anna's post... again such heart wrenching words... in both statement you can get a sense of the pain & sorrow withn them...

    Thoughts & love to all 6 families as they are all in pain at this time.. . Xxxxx

    Heartbreaking...
    But it's somewhat comforting that she knows she's not a lone in this and that she feels the support.
    I wish Talinda and the kids all the best and send my love!

    I feel like I've largely gotten through my own sadness and grieving, and, now, things like this are making me tear up purely out of sympathy
