Elyse, just saw your note. Sorry for the delay.

'Words to Our Loved Ones' is immediately above the main Comment Wall where we all write. Hope you can find it. For me it is strange when other Members reply to something I am saying to Bernie. Hope you have a safe, unanswered trip!

Hi Elyse, I was just reading your last comment addressed to me and it just made me feel uplifted to know that with the interchange of encouragement we can continue to live a life full of joy and peace. Elyse, I continue to turn to the bible for strength; it has helped me through so much of life unpredictable events. Proverbs 3:5,6. Hoping all continue to be well with you. Take care...hope to hear from you soon!

Glad it served some useful purpose, Elyse. And hopefully people do not reply to those private messages. Sometimes I talk with Bernie as if he is around, and pray for his soul every night. Thanks.

Elyse I don't know to create a group. I never tried it nor have I ever thought of doing it. I'm certain it can be done. I'll see if I can check it out with someone. In the mean time read what you can. I don't know if you can get on loss of a child. There may be a clue there. 

At 10:56pm on April 16, 2018, Barbara Rieger said…

Words to Our Loved Ones is for parents who have lost a child. Under the Discussion Forum. Each group can start this if there is none already started.

So sorry for your losses too. The photos and sayings help explain our hearts  when we aren't quite sure how to put words to our feelings. I buried my mother on February 6, 2018 then my partner tragically and suddenly a few weeks later on February 26, 2018.  I've never experienced such a nightmare of grief and horror all at once for two people that meant the world to me.  I've been reading the comments here and know we all share an unending pain and sorrow.

Hello. The question why will be one you always ask. We all do.  Be gentle and kind and allow yourself anything and everything that feeds your soul right now.  Grief is tricky and hard. I am so sorry for your loss.  Know that all of us understand your pain and this is a place you can always come for support.

Elyse, thank-you for reaching out, so much sadness for you. Your only sibling.  Words don't come easy, only tears.   Amy died Sept 30 2014.

Thank you so much for your support!  Forgive the late reply - I have been taking a few steps back to just see where I am headed and to try to take better care of my health and my emotional well being.  This group is so supportive and it gives insight as to how to help others during their time of loss.  We learn the power of love as we move forward in our lives.  It is amazing how we come full circle with the teaching of the Bible - "love cures all thing."  Again, Thank you.

Forgive me. I can not clearly see the message when I type it because it does not come out in dark print until it's sent for some reason do when I re read it I can't clearly see but I'll try to be more careful. I wish the typo is take could be erased. I'm sorry. Please I hope you understand else
