    I don't know how she's going to be able to compete. Right now she must still be in shock. When my mother died unexpectedly, I could barely function for 2 days. Seeing her wipe her eyes while on the ice brought tears to my eyes.

    It is almost incomprehensible how she could possibly be out there moving forward. "Strong" is an underestimation. The world will be rooting for her every step this week.

    Yes, the whole skating world will be behind her no matter what. It's terrible. I don't know even what to say except my heart goes out to her.

    This is so unbearably sad. I hope she skates well. She looked so sad at practice yesterday.

    NBC said last night that Joannie was rooming with Tessa Virtue. After hearing the news, Tessa gave the room to Joannie and Joannie's dad is with her. It sounds like people are being as supportive as possible. Go compete, girl, and knock it out of the park!

    I am very sorry for what happened. It is really hard to believe and I can not imagine how hard it is for Joannie to be there. I admire her couragious decision to stay competing and I am sure her mom is watching her all the way.
    whole skating community's sincere thoughs and prayers are with you.

    Thanks! This is good to know. I'm so very sad for this girl. I'll be thinking about her the whole time when the competition starts tomorrow. Good luck, Joannie.

    Very sad! Probably the greatest moment of her life has turned into one of the worst. Sure hope she goes out and skates the heck out of her programs and wins a medal!!

    I'm speechless. May the Rochettes' courage and love, and God's grace, strengthen Joannie to meet this terrible challenge.

    it's called "Canada's condolences..." so does that mean I can't participate?
