Happy Memories of Loved Ones


Happy Memories of Loved Ones

I lost my son May 9, 2008 at age 18. I have shared my story of grief and healing with many, I thought it would be a great idea if we all shared a story of a happy time with our child or loved one, something that will make us smile.

I lost my husband Larry August 9, 2009. This sounds really dumb and juvenile but here goes. Larry's pride and joy was his big black Dodge truck, leather interior and Bose stereo. We both love rock music and one day we were sitting at a stop light and Black Sabbath was playing, turned up loud because that is the only way to listen to it. Anyway, we looked at each other and started head banging to the tunes. We both burst out laughing and got some really strange looks from the cars around us which only made us laugh more. Just a cute little story and thank you, sharing it does make me smile and feel better.
Take care Yvonne

I lost my eight year old daughter this past September. I have been working very hard at getting some traffic laws changed. About a week ago "Abbagails Law" was givin a bill number and introduced to legislation. This new law makes it illegal for the responsible licensed driver in the car to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol. My daughter was killed in an accident where the driver was underaged and with only a permit and the only licensed driver in the car was over double the legal limit blood alcohol level. As of right now that is not against the law. Hopefully my Abbagail will make the world a little safer for other little kids.

I lost my 19 year old brother October 5, 2009, to an accidental electrocution at his job. The Friday before my brother passed away, we were celebrating our mother's birthday. Robby (my brother) and Alec (my 2 year old nephew) were playing and running through the house. Alec decided that to get away from the "Monster" he would crawl into his Thomas the train tunnel. Much to all of our surprise, Robby got a running start and penguin slid into the tunnel behind him. The whole thing went tumbling, Robby and Alec squealing the whole time. Then, loud as a bell we hear Alec, "Again, Roddy! Again!" I will always cherish that memory of Robby and his wonderful personality.

Spending two weeks with my father during Christmas and New Year felt like a dream come true. We spoke every day while I was deployed. We had so much fun when I returned. Remember driving on Christmas Eve to see a member of the family who was sick, told my dad that it was funny driving him around now, when I was a child he would be the one always driving me around. He didn't sit quite in the front seat but he made me laugh telling me how to drive, move with the speed of traffic, don't follow the cars to close, these are all special memories that will stay with me forever. Told my father on January 2, I would be back soon don't get up, my flight was early, would see him in 19 days we would have 30 days together before my next duty station. We were both excited about that. Just wasn't to be I came home 17 days only to
walk into my father empty den. My world has not been the same. Those sweet memories I shared with dad before his massive hearth attack will live in my heart forever. Whisper in dad ear at the funeral I would love him, until the last breath left my body.

that is a very funny story. i remember when my husband and i was returning from pittsburg pa it was a long drive from where we live he was getting agated because he thought we did not get into new jersey yet. i told him we just hit a county that is in nj he did not beleive me so he pulled into a gas station and asked the attendent which way to nj the attendent stated sir you are in nj well he felt stupid but to this day when i think about it it crackes me up when ever we went for any rides we would both think of that story.

Ilost both of my parents when I was 17 and 18 and my little brother when I was 37. One of the greatest memories of my little brother when he was standing on the living room table in his underwear,singing a favorite song of ours playing air guitar.
I laughed so hard,and that night I will never forget

My Carleigh Gracelee was only here for 1 month and 1 day but she touched the life of many. For about 6 months after she passed I received calls,letters,cards,visitors,ect. that could not explain why but felt that Carleigh had touched there life and they just needed to tell me that. Some of these people had only spent 10 mins with her. It would be amazing to know what she would have accomplished on Earth having this great power to put such a positive influence on peoples' lives, but she got a better job in Heaven. I miss and love her so much, as do my other 5 children, so Carleigh just lives on in them. Thanks to all this really helps

What a great idea! My Dad passed away in Feb. 2006 of lung cancer. I remember when I was young, every year on the Saturday before my birthday, he and I would go shopping. He'd take me to the local department store and tell me "You pick out anything you want, and that will be my special birthday gift from me to you." One year it was a big pink stuffed bunny. Another time it was a little AM radio that I listened to all the time. We grew up on the lake and once we convinced him to try ice skating. We all laughed so hard at him. He actually fell UP before he fell down. Believe me, he never tried that again! I only hope that my kids can have as many happy memories of me when I'm gone.

My fiance, Junior, died on June 20, 2009. He was always so much fun and I am blessed with so many happy memories of our times together! We had known each other for over 40 years . . we each had been married, mine ending in divorce in 2002 and his ending with his wife's death in 2007. I am only a little over 5 feet tall. Junior always had fun telling people that I had "sued the city". When he would say that, the reply would be "why - what happened"? He would then say "they built the sidewalk too close to her rear". He would always just laugh when he said that; I could see the sparkle in his gorgeous blue eyes-you could see his eyes laughing!! Junior and I were friends for years, only had two years together . . but they were the best two years of my life, and I hope of his! We had such a great time together and enjoyed each other so much. Thank God for the blessings and the short, but my greatest love ever!! Not a day goes by without me remembering him and his beautiful blue eyes!

My oldest son, Jon died June 29,09. Jon had Cerebral Palsy from birth and was determined to talk. It was difficult for even me to understand what he was saying sometimes. My fond memories are the times when he would repeat what he was saying so I'd understand and if I was having a hard time figuring it out, I'd repeat back something silly like I really thought he was saying it. He would start laughing and his laughter was really deep. I so miss that laugh. Jon loved his siblings but he adored his niece Maddy. She was so special to him. Seeing them together was so fun. She was 2 1/2 when he died but I talk to her about him because I want her to know how much Uncle Jon loved her.
