I've never done this so I hope I'm doing it right I guess I'll start by saying that almost 5 months ago I lost my boyfriend of 18yrs to an abcess tooth and now I have to raise our son alone and he hasn't been listening to me he's been really hard to do deal with, I mean I can't even handle my own pain then to have to try and handle his attitude as well I don't know what to do. Can someone give me some suggestions please?

My life change when...

My life changed when I could no longer hear you walking throughout the house at 6:30 a.m., getting your orange juice from the kitchen or ice from the tray and putting it into your glass for water. You clicking the remote for the television and hearing you call my name, "Gloria, get up it's 6 a.m." My life changed when I could no longer hear you say, "Be careful" as I left to take my daughter to school or anywhere that I maybe going that day, the two words that we often take for granted.

My life changed when...I would come home and looked at your chair, and you weren't there. My life changed....when I could no longer smell your cooking or eat my favorite desserts, sweet potato and chess pies that you were known for cooking. I looked for you in the kitchen one of your favorite places, and you weren't there, the back porch, neither were you there. Wow! Where were you?

My last meal, words, prayer, conversation, laugh, but most of all the look into your eyes and knowing that you were saying, "I love you and I know you love me, but I don't know how to say to you that I must leave you soon".

And...Suddenly, it happened that weekend, that day and time came that you had to say good-bye to us all. Yes, I realize your presence of your spirit, scent, photos, memories is still with us, but most of all your wisdom hasn't and never will leave me.

I know that you live on when I talk with your oldest son, my brother, my sister, my children, but most of all is when I look into the mirror into my eyes and I see you, smiling back at me telling me, "Yes, I love you and always will. I have passed on the torch to you to carry on what we often talked about, love and support the family and staying connected to God, I'm happy, but most of all I'm proud of the woman that you have become."

Your anniversary will soon be here January 14th of one year that we celebrate the new birth of being with The Lord. I love you, miss you, and I can still here you in my ear all the time.

All I can say is...My Life Changed When...

Dear Leonard,

Thank you for being part of the LegacyConnect community, and thank you for bringing this to our attention. We discovered late last week that Norton anti-virus software was incorrectly returning an alert for our site. We worked with Norton to resolve the issue, and you should now be able to access our site in full.

We appreciate your patience and understanding. Please let us know if we may be of further assistance.

Why is this site being listed as a danger to my copmutor by my virus protection programs? Who monitors the site for potential threats to an already grieving group? What and who can answer these concerns? Are we safe coming here for help finding some answers to our losses with-out losing our computors and media of understanding and support? Since it's been almost a year since the last posting on this board, I wonder if I'll get a reply.

On august 10th, 2008 I lost my only son to a tragic hunting accident. He was 35. We expect our children to oulive us, to go further and to be happier than we were. Whatever the cause of an early death of a child NO parent can find it easy to handle. We search every where to find some peace of comfort, and so far I have not found it. Not through my family, my church family, or any friend. I read as much as I can just to tell myself that I am not going crazy. I read somewhere, that when you lose you spouse, you become a widow or widower, when you lose you parents you become an orphan, but when you loss your child there is not a name for it . It is just that bad! In life the beginning is scary, the end is sad, but the middle is what really counts, How true is that. I pray for each of us that God will hold our children in his Loving Arms, until we can be there to join them. God Bless each of you, and thank you too! Dianne Hardy

Approaching Death

Posted on June 21, 2013 at 9:00am 2 Comments

I'm not a mom. I don't have any first-hand experience with the deep bond a parent feels for their child, or of the wrenching anguish that the death of a child brings. But I don't think I'm alone in understanding how horrific the loss of a child must be. And I can't have been the only reader who sobbed like their heart was breaking while reading Kimberly A. Condon's article "Approaching Death."…
