My Mother's Day without my son:

I was thinking of you my son today,

And how painful this mother's day is without you,

To have lived through the death of my child my son YOU

my son.

On this Special day when children honor their mother…

How Death of my son has changed me. 07-24-2009

I thought my son was always going to be here. And I rarely face the fact that we are all

not given today or tomorrow no one is; But when a mother outlives her child, the world, our relationships, our dreams, our feelings, our goals & our life changes forever. I didn’t need to do nothing to change things from then. It happens all by itself….day after day.

The way I get up every morning…and start a new day….not with the… Continue

What is normal?

What is normal?

Normal is having tears waiting behind every smile because my son is missing from all the important events in our family’s life.

Normal is trying to decide what to take to put on his grave that he would have loved.

Normal is feeling like you can’t sit another minute without getting up and screaming, because you just don’t like to sit through anything anymore.

Normal is not sleeping very well because a thousand what if’s & why didn’t I’s go through your… Continue

Hi Twila
I read about your son, and I was moved to write you to express my condolences.
When death separates family members, such great loss can result in deep sorrow. No doubt you are feeling overwhelmed with great sadness. You need endurance and comfort at this time. You may even find that it is especially difficult for you each year about the time your son passed.
The Bible assures us at Psalms 34:18: " Jehovah is near to those that are broken at heart, and those who are crushed in spirit he saves." While Jesus was on earth he raised the dead, and he will also do that for our dead loved one. God has promised according to Matthew 6:9,10 that he will make the earth into a paradise. When the earth is made into a paradise, we will have the prospect of enjoying life without end, free from all sickness and tragedy. At John 5:21,28,29 Jesus Christ promised that millions now dead will live again on this earth and have the prospect of remaining on it forever under peaceful, paradisaic conditions. It will be into such a cleansed earth that Jehovah will resurrect the dead.

I hope that these scriptures have brought you some comfort.

My Son:
I Miss you

It's been a short time,since you've been gone. I pray every day to be strong and carry on, but I miss you
I think of you every day, I never knew the pain of losing you my son could hurt like this and my tears start to flow. Your memories will always remain, inside my heart even when my heart is torn apart.
the emptiness is so lonely, it seems I won't make it another day and I remember your smile and
I remember you told me secrets, I hold so dear to my heart
and we talked about so many things, I could not say
And now you've gone, so far away.
I only wish, you could've stayed.
I miss and love you, my heart is so empty and broke.
I wish I could've held you my son for one last time before you had to go. But I know God only calls the best home. You taught me one last thing before you left, and that was to be strong and carry on.
You said you would always take care of me. So take my hand and guide me there. And save me a place, for one day for us to share. I love you my son Mom
