I always try to put myself in the family's shoes in these situations and honestly it is so beyond comprehension what his wife and son must be going through. It makes me appreciate every single happy moment I have because I know that his family is going to feel nothing but pain for a really long time. It just doesn't feel fair. I'm a very spiritual person and I know that Shad is fine and in a good place, but my goodness I can't even fathom what his family is going through.
Truly awful news. I'm sure his son will carry with him the rest of his life the fact that his father died to save him. I mourn with Shad Gaspard's family and loved ones today. My heart goes out to you and my prayers.
After hearing that he went missing at sea, I can't say I'm shocked by the outcome. Nonetheless, I wouldn't wish it upon anyone. Obviously I never knew the guy personally, neither was I a particular fan of Cryme Tyme, but these things don't matter in situations like this. The guy evidently made a life of self-less deeds and has a track record of heroic feats. To die a hero is a telling sign of the man's character. RIP Shad, you went too young but succeeded in saving your son's life.
