I am genuinely and deeply sorry for the couple but can we keep in mind that ,sadly, scores of ordinary people are going through the agony of losing a child every day in this country and nobody knows nor cares about them.
They deserve the same sympathy and support that any celebrity couple get so keep them in your thoughts as well.

Oh how terribly, terribly sad.
There is no pain worse than the pain of losing a child.
My prayers are with you and your family, may God comfort you.

My thoughts and love go to Mr Barlow and his family at this sad time. Nothing anyone says will take away the pain, and time will never heal your wounds but I hope the love you and your wife share will be a help and comfort.
