This might be a rough time for many of you. Do what you feel you need to do to get through it. Remember, someone is here almost all the time to talk to you.

OMG!!! It is hard enough dealing with the loss of the LOYL let alone children. I admire your strength and fortitude. Be well. You truly know how to LIVE and I am jealous and in awe. Good for you my friend, you give me inspiration.
It's 5 months since I lost my wife, almost 5 years since I lost my youngest boy (age 26) 6 years since I lost my grand daughter ( age 8 ) and 14 years since I lost my second youngest boy ( age 19 ). I learned that not a day goes by that I don't think of them and I will love them all until I join them in the afterlife . But each day that passes I remember a happy time that I shared with them rather than the pain of losing them. Never let anyone tell you how to feel but try to focus on the joy you shared and how lucky you are to have shared those happy times. Eventually you will catch yourself laughing at something and may feel a sense of guilt. You need not feel guilty because a wise man once said without intent to hurt there can be no guilt. That same wise man said that the amount of time we grieve doesn't have to equal the amount of time we loved. Your heart will tell you when to feel and it's OK to feel sad and happy when the feelings arise. I hope these words give you hope and a sense of peace because lord knows I felt like the world fell out from under me more than once. I know now that they are always with me and always will be. I need only close my eyes to see them all.
I'll finish with the lyrics from a song by "Alter Bridge"which inspires me, and always remember we are here when you need us...Pete
"In Loving Memory" Thanks for all you've done I've missed you for so long I can't believe you're gone You still live in me I feel you in the wind You guide me constantly I've never knew what it was to be alone, no Cause you were always there for me You were always there waiting And ill come home and I miss your face so Smiling down on me I close my eyes to see And I know, you're a part of me And it's your song that sets me free I sing it while I feel I can't hold on I sing tonight cause it comforts me
I carry the things that remind me of you
