Just saw that Reg, such sad news. 

Can't imagine what they are going through.

I’m crying my eyes out mate. So desperately sad.

I can't comprehend what they must be going through. It's up there as one of the worst possible life events. I just hope they go on and build a big happy family in the future.

Absolutely devastating. No parent would ever want to go through that. Heartfelt condolences. I hope the club find a way to support Benik and show the City family are behind him.

Awful, awful news. My thoughts are with the Afobe family. I'm sure all City fans and all your other friends and supporters are likewise.

Horrendous news,, would be nice to think some gesture could be made to benik and his family?

Just wondering whether we held a collection for flowers or for a charity of Benik's choice in Amora's name

Haven been a parent who has had to bury a child, I can only say the pain is still raw 30 years on. 
 

Thoughts are with Benik and rest of the family throughout these times. 

Red, I wanted to leave an acknowledgement to your post. However, I didn't think any of the icons/emoticons or whatever they are called were appropriate enough.

"Thanks" and "like" are too vague so please accept this response instead. We only have one child who's about to turn 19. I have no idea what the pain you both must have felt 30 years ago and ever since. Thank you for posting your very eloquent and succinct message and that whilst the pain may never disappear it will be outweighed by the great memories and love.

Thank you Red for posting and please have a great day today.

This is so true, I lost my first son age 3 back in 1988......he's buried in the churchyard at Warmley.....the pain never goes and my family's thoughts are with Benik and his family and hopefully he gets all the support he will need

Wondered why Williams pointed to the sky when he scored, now we know why 

I did wonder what LJ ment when he said it had been a challenging week or words to that effect.

Absolutely terrible news and my thoughts are with the family at this horrible time.

Writing with tears in my eyes..................Just devastating news.

I always think words like "................puts everything into perspective" are over used and a bit trite, but this truly does.

Peace and love to Benik and family .

Lovely messages from Stoke, Wolves and Jack Wilshere too. Clearly a very likable bloke as well. This news has really upset me today.

This world can be so unfair at times .

Happy to organise a card as I’ve done previously with other similar things if people would like that. 

Yes please .

So sad to hear. Whatever happens at the end of the season, he will always be part of the Bristol City family.
