Through my tears
by: Kate

Through my tears I thank each of you for your loving words while you bearing your own sorrow. Now I am facing the two year mark. I do not know how.
Death is the enemy not God. He wanted us to live forever.
Read Genesis and see how death came to be. It's harder than we ever imagined. May our strength be filled to go on daily.
Love to each of you.

Grieving mom
by: Leticia

I feel your pain 6 months mom. I too lost my son a yrs ago last sept.14,20012. My jimmy was a single father of five that adored and loved his children so much. He was so active in every aveue with his kids unless he was working. There were insperable. He came to live with me and I would drop his kids off to school on my way to work. He went in to work much earlier then we did and always got off in time to pick up his kids when they got off of school. That morning on his way to work he had a heart attack. He was 37 yrs shy from being 38 yrs. I felt so much pain and kept saying not my baby!!! The pain is unbearable. I just wanted to die. He was my first born and his brother and sister were so close. It really is true, you'll never be the same again part of me left with my son. There is a void in my heart. Prayers go out to all mothers that have to indure this pain. I still have my bad days where I cry so much I feel weak. I started to attend a support group and with prayers to help me cope and be strong for his babies. It has help me . It just going to take a long time to ease the pain.

Missing Travis
by: Joyce

I too lost my son, Travis, 6 mos. ago June 29. He had lived with me for the past 7 yrs due to chronic pain and addiction issues. The pain is unbearable. I am reading a book called when God doesn't answer prayer by Jerry Sittser which talks about being angry at God and I find it is helpful. I have two adult grandchildren from my oldest son and they never even acknowledged their uncles death. I was devasted by that. I am just doing A Day at a Time right now. His loss has made my life a little less sweet and death a little less bitter. My heart goes out to all of you who have felt this horrible anguish.

I feel the same agony...
by: Margi

Your words are what I feel it will be 6 months on the 13th of June...I want my son Dominic as you want Louie- sadly we are not alone. I am hugging your heart from afar. If your able I'd love to hear who Louie was as a person?
Dominic is our best friend he fished,boated, loved the beach, his family and friends .Man oh man when he smiled he lit up the room and your heart! I am lucky in that all his friends and our familes posted every picture they had of him on his face book account in the days after.. along with their memory of what they were doing. Me and his dad got to read and see all the good times he had even when we wasn't there! To this day I still recieve a random photo or a few kind words that they are thinking of him. I know this will lessening as time goes by but it helps for now to know he is loved by so many others. But in the end my last day of happiness in life ended on 01/13/2013. I wish this horror to end for us both and am honored to know that a man named Louie existed and is so very very loved and missed

My feelings exactly
by: Anonymous


I feel for you so losing your beloved son Louie. My beloved son Luke was knocked down and killed by 2 cars just before Christmas 2012. It just doesn't get any easier, I still regularly scream and cry for my son who was 34 years and still lived with us. At times it's till hard to believe we just have to take one day at a time our love will never die and we will never get over it. Thinking of you,best wishes from England.

I am so sorry for your loss of your son Louie. This is the most difficult pain to endure. The loss of a child/adult child. When we lose someone so close and precious we wonder how we can go on in life another day. We don't know what another day will bring. Will we be so overcome with grief that we can't function that day? It is all the things we see around us that remind us of the one we have lost that triggers off our grief again. There will always be reminders around us. But crying is good for the soul. It flushes out our pain and allows us a day closer to healing from our loss. Those initial days are the worst. I am 1yr. into losing my husband of 44yrs. and I don't know when life will get better. We just have to live with HOPE. My sister lost her son at 30yrs. and it matters not how old a child is. The loss is unbearable. You are not alone. May each day find you closer to healing from your loss of your son and that you find Peace and Comfort.

Sorry for your loss !
by: Rebekah

I have never lost a child but lost my identical twin sister almost two years ago, the pain you feel I still feel everyday. My mother says I need to give it to The Lord and he will help with the pain, are you religious ? I can't say it helps with the pain because as for myself , I don't like him at this moment , have you felt like that? Everyone says I shouldn't feel like that but I can't help it I do . I really am sorry about your loss and some days will be easier than others , there are days I forget and try to call her , wonder if that's normal? Good luck and hope your pain eases even slightly at least once in a while.
