i have lost several

by ann

well my story begins with the lost my father he just turned 48 yrs. I had just turned 18 and had got married in march of the same yr . both our birthdays are in DEC. his 25th mine is 22nd. my mother was left with two teen age daughters. she had bad back and had not worked for yrs. she didn't even have her driving license. this was in 1970.she had no money or any insurance to pay the cost of the burial not counting to even pay the living exp. my father worked mostly self employed. did not pay any taxes hardly or pay in social security . she did not even know his social security number. bad situation. in 1972 she loses my precious little sister at the age of 15. she got killed in a car wreck . she was in her boy friends car. the car did not have any damage hardly at all. a drunk driver hit them on a small dirt road. then in 1992 I lost my 64 yr. old mother. oh yes I forgot to mention my mothers mother passed the same time that she lost Mary my sister.then we had the funerals back to back.we had just lost my fathers mother prior to his death in 1970.then in 1998 we lost my sister Wanda in a car wreck. she had her 3 yr old daughter in the car with her.she lived but her mother passed. away. I thought that these deaths would all kill me. but the worst was yet to come. we lost our grandson in Nov.of last yr 2013. he has a twin. 11 yrs old.with a asthma attack. my daughter is dieing inside herself.so are her daddy and sister and brother. her two boys that are left and her husband,only through knowing god as we do will we be able to move own. let them talk as much about the lost as they want to. this will help to move on.you let them talk and you listen to them,don't rush the grieving part, for god has a time set for the grieving and a time to mourn for them will be forever.

I have lost several
by: Doreen UK

Ann I am sorry for all your loss's. When a child dies it does feel more like our world has ended. Grief is so very painful. Your daughter may benefit from seeing a grief counsellor to help support her in a specialised way like family are not able to do. Most people who lose a child need to use this service. I have witnessed many people unable to go on in life when they have lost a child. My sister needed a counsellor to come to her home and pick up the pieces of a shattered life after losing her son under a train. WE hurt so bad for a long time. 8yrs. on Healing has taken place in all of us but we won't forget this death ever. Believing in God is a very present Help in grief. Jesus Wept. when Lazarus died. God must have wept when His Son died. Even if Jesus was on a mission and took back his life. This is for a reason. Taking back his life so that we can have eternal life. You will all see your loved one's again according to promise. Jesus says. " I will come back again and receive you unto myself, that where I am, there you may be also. God wants us to be with him forever. This is when we will see our loved ones again. Comfort one another with these promises, is what Jesus asks of us. SORROW. But not as those who have no HOPE. Hold onto this promise. May God reach down and comfort all of you and give you His Peace.
