My beautiful girl

by Karen

I lost my beautiful 21 year old daughter December 5, 2009. She was on her way to work, the road was slippery. She lost control and was thrown from her vehicle. She was then impaled on a tree. She did live for a few moments but did not survive the trip to the hospital. If she would have had her seat belt on she would have survived.

My heart aches each and every day. She was not my only child but we did have so many hopes and dreams, a wedding some day...and grandbabies. She was the mother hen of her siblings and I always knew she would be a wonderful mother someday. I just continue to go over and over that day. Why? Why my precious baby.

My heart will never heal. The days do get easier. Many of them I pretend that I am fine. But I just can't imagine going through the rest of my life without her in it. Some days it seems like it was yesterday. Today it feels like it's been forever since I've seen her smile. I looked and looked for a sign. The kind they show in movies. I have no sign. The only thing I have right now is pain. No parent should have to endure this. I would give everything I have for my beautiful girl to have the chance to live again.

sending love from my heart to yours. The loss of a loved one is a very sad time the loss of a much loved child is on another level. Dark days followed by darker days become a new normal and life will never be the same....heartbroken forever.

I too lost my beautiful 21yr old daughter on the 8 December 2009 in a head on collision, she died instantly. And so did I.

Sending love, light and hope Karen and may we find the strength to carry on.

I am hearing and feeling the same, every emotion. I can relate to it all. We will never ever be the same people darling, we will always have memories of our precious children with us in our hearts from now until we are with them again. My son Dean was 23 and on his way to work as well. I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful daughter. I send you love and healing. I am thinking of you and your family.

Your beautiful daughter
by: Ms Mack


Your story is so sad, I cried when I read it. You have been strong so far and going along for the rest of your family. That's what a good mom does.

You mentioned you have not had a sign....I'm sure your beautiful daughter is with you somehow, you just haven't recognized the signs. When I lost the love if my life, I too couldn't believe that he wasn't trying to reach me. A friend told me something that made all the sense in the world. Talk to him, let him know how much I love and miss him and ask a question. You may not get an answer immediately. It may come the next day. It could be a thought that pops into your head, a song on the radio, something will happen or be seen that reminds you of her. It happens when you are thinking about something completely different. Maybe you will recognize the signs and I hope you do.

Take comfort in knowing we all here. All of us have different pain and deal with it the best we can. That's all we can do. My prayers and sympathy goes out to you. Write when you need to and take one breath, one step, one day....... We are here for you.
