I just read that the search was called off. This story has really affected me (for some reason) since I first read about them early Sunday morning. It just makes me so sad - and I''m not normally that affected by random bad news.

This is so weird. I just said the exact same thing to my fiance about an hour ago- almost word for word.

I normally see some bad news on tv or in the paper and I may feel bad for the people involved, but I move on. But for some reason, I could not stop thinking about this. This whole situation makes me so sad and I can''t stop thinking about how scary the whole situation was for these men. Can you imagine being standed in the ocean...especially in the pitch dark, not knowing if you will ever be found, if anyone even knows you''re missing, if you will be eaten by a shark, etc. Or clinging onto the overtuned boat as you watch you close friends being swept away? I was deeply sad to read that the search had been called of for the other three, and my heart goes out to their families and friends.

My fiance thinks I was so affected because my parents are boaters...but I don''t know

I am incredibly sad for the families of the men still missing. I cannot imagine the heartache not knowing brings...and the fear of wondering what their last moments were like... Just absoutely horrifying.

I told my husband last night that what happened to those men is perhaps one of my greatest fears...I can''t watch movies like Open Water for that reason. I am honestly terrified just thinking about it...and IMHO the only thing worse than it happening to me, would be if it happened to my husband.

It is very sad; I feel the same way.

It''s very sad, and it hits home for me as well being a boater in Fl. My heart does go out to all of them and their families and friends.
I have to wonder what on earth they were doing out there anyway. Our boat is considerably larger than that for a center console and we would never!

Terribly sad. I just heard tonight that two of the guys gave up and just took off their life jackets and drifted away. The other apparently thought he saw help coming and threw away the cushion he was holding and started swimming, probably delusional at that point. It''s really amazing the one guy made it.

Just an awful way to live the last hours of you life. This story really affected me too even though I''m not familar with these men as NFL players. I pray that their families can find peace.

Has anyone else been following the developments?

The sole survior is saying that the men not at the boat more or less all gave up hope, removed their jackets and drifted away. One man did try to swim for it but without a lifevest.

It''s so tragically sad. What an awful feeling.

It''s so sad. I feel terrible for their families. I also feel horrible for the sole survivor. He will be affected by the loss of his friends for the rest of his life. It''s so hard to imagine.
