Dec 4, 2009 worst day of my life!

Posted on December 25, 2009 at 7:30pm 6 Comments

The picture with me is my beautiful grandaughter Skylie, she would of been 1 on January 15th. Skylie was in my bedroom taking a nap before her mom took her to pick up my son from work. Skylie had flu-like symptoms for 2 weeks prior. When her mom went upstairs to get her she started screaming, I saw her coming down stairs carrying her like a rag-doll, I laid her on the floor and tried doing CPR which I now call Mom Mom kisses. I couldn't find a pulse, 911 arrived, they worked on her and finally… Continue

I'm so sorry to hear about your nephew, Teresa.  My son died by suicide as well, this May.  Were you two very close?

I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful grand baby.  It's just so hard to wrap your mind around why they are taken so young. 

It will be one year on December 6 that I lost my oldest child and only daughter.  I bought a candle to light on that day. 

As a grandmother, I know my mom struggles a lot with losing my daughter.  My mom lost my brother in 1982 and she has said losing my brother was the worst thing imaginable, until we lost Autumn.  I'm assuming not wanting me to feel the pain she had felt when she lost my brother, plus she and Autumn were very close.

I think sometimes people focus so much on the parents of the child and the child's siblings, that they forget the grandparents. 

I feel for you and the whole situation surrounding losing your little

I'm sending hugs your way and I will be thinking of you on Sunday.

Look for the song FACE OF HEAVEN. Yes it's hard I am currently writing a book of my son. And yes I am selfish too 1 more day 1 more hug 1 more......you must live on and share her story. People want to hear ESP how we all repaired our fractured lives. Did we become big brothers or sisters. Did we foster did we adopt.did we help at schools sit down and figure out you r new path

Hello Teresa,  I am so sorry for your loss.  My son passed away Dec. 7, 2010.  He was 43.  I feel like someone pulled my heart out of my chest.  You're right, I wish I had more memories.  And yours, being so little, so innocent, so precious, my heart goes out to you.  We all feel your pain.  Hugs to you.  Paula

I want to repeat to you... You did not cause this..nor could you have prevented this.   I know that does not help your pain, but we have to forgive ourselves for what happened  Skyle loves you still and you will see that one day.  We do not know why we lost them, one day maybe we will... I so know your pain..  God Bless.

teresa, i hope that you will not harm yourself.  please as tami says talk to someone about this.  the pain is so unbearable at times.  its a day to day hour to hour struggle which i think we all understand.  i lost my only child  6 weeks ago and i struggle everyday that i am no longer a mother and that was my life.  i have such guilt about his death.  but i hope that you know that you are valued and need to live.  there is people you may not even know that you are somehow having a positive impact on their life.  and we somehow have to learn how to live with how stupid people are with how they act and what they say sometimes.  people do not think before they speak and sometimes they speak ignorance.  ive been told your young enough have another child.  like my son was a dam puppy and i could just make another baby and it would be better.  which is even more painful as my son didnt have a brother or sister because we tried to have other children and we couldnt that would be why my son was 18 without a sibling.  please let us all know you are ok.  we do care about you.
