Jackie, On April 9, I start me my FIFTH year without my only child. It's so uncomprehensable! My Dad is doing well. He'll be 86 on 2/23! I'm SO happy he quit drinking and smoking! My Mom passed from C of the throat due to smoking.I haven't been doing anything to help me. I feel like I'm wallowing in self pity and waiting for Candace to take me Home. I know she's in good hands with others who've passed. Her Spitit visited me the day b/4 her funeral. I KNOW there's Life after death!  The Bible's word IS comforting! I like the story about Jesus' friend Lazarus and his sister. He was stinkin' by the time Jesus got back.

Hello Melinda, I am sorry to read about your daughter Candace. It is helpful to know that the mourning process is tailored to each individual. The old saying: "Take as much time as you need" is applicable in this instance when someone we love dies. There is no set time or limit for those who are mourning over their deep loss. It is a personal and individual thing, between God and themselves. I am happy to read that you are hopeful and still coping. What have you been doing that has assisted you in coping with the loss of your baby girl?

Also, I definitely believe there "IS" a God as you do Melinda. It is especially during the loss of child, a good friend, a mate, or a close relative, that we realize the strength and endurance that God gives us. I have felt God's peace during those times that were the hardest. The Bible has been my best friend because of the comforting message that it holds out for dear loved ones who have died.

I think about the miracles in the Bible that Jesus performed when he brought back to life someone's daughter, a widow's son, and a dear friend of his named Lazarus. These scriptural accounts reassure me that one day I will see my relatives who have died.

Candace passed 4/09/10. Yes I'm still mourning but hopeful because her Spirit came to me the day b/4 her funeral. Freaked me out at first, but I knew it was my just turned 30 yr old Baby-girl saying, "see ya". She always said that. I KNOW the Spirit LIVES. She'll be waiting for me when I take my last breath. Please believe, there IS a higher power I call God.
