PITTSYLVANIA COUNTY, Va. (WDBJ7) - Blake Bivens says his pain is “unbearable” and that he “can’t breathe” after his wife, son and mother-in-law were murdered in Pittsylvania County Tuesday.

"The pain my family and I feel is unbearable and cannot be put into words," Bivens wrote in an Instagram post. "I shake and tremble at the thought of our future without them."

Bivens is a minor league baseball player for the Montgomery Biscuits.

Emily Bivens was his wife. She was murdered Tuesday, along with their 14-month-old son, Cullen.

“Emily, my sweetheart, you are the best wife and mother this world has ever seen,” Bivens wrote. “My sweet little boy, dada loves you so much! I can’t breathe without you here.”

Joan Bernard, Emily's mother, was also murdered.

“Joan you were the best mother-in-law anyone could ask for. You loved your family more than anyone I’ve ever seen. You raised the most wonderful girl in the world. I’m so glad y’all are still together. You were the best Nana this world has ever seen and I will never forget you,” Bivens wrote.

Matthew Bernard is accused of murdering the three victims, his mother, sister and nephew.

Two days ago my heart was turned to ash. My life as I knew it is destroyed. The pain my family and I feel is unbearable and cannot be put into words. I shake and tremble at the thought of our future without them. Emily, my sweetheart, you are the best wife and mother this world has ever seen. You made me into the man I am today and you loved me with all of my flaws. You brought our precious baby boy into this world and made our family complete. Your love and kindness changed countless lives, including mine. My sweet little boy, dada loves you so much! I can’t breathe without you here. I finally understood what love was when you were born and I would have done anything for you. You have changed my life forever, you are my reason why. I long to hold the both of you again in heaven. I’m so glad you are with all your Great-grandmothers now, I know they are eating you up. This earth did not deserve either of you; you were just too wonderful to comprehend. Joan you were the best mother-in-law anyone could ask for. You loved your family more than anyone I’ve ever seen. You raised the most wonderful girl in the world. I’m so glad y’all are still together. You were the best Nana this world has ever seen and I will never forget you. Skip you are a wonderful father and grandfather. We will get through this together as a family. We will not let the devil win! Thank you God for giving me the most wonderful family in the world! I’ve been blessed beyond belief. Thank you to all my family and friends who have reached out to me during this time of sorrow. Thank you @raysbaseball @biscuitbaseball for your support through everything. I am comforted by all the messages and well wishes. I’m not sure what is next for me, but I do know God has a plan even though I can’t see it.
