My daughter Mena would have been 10 years old this year on May 30. On May 29th 2000 I was 37 weeks and 3 days pregnant. I hadn't felt my baby move all day. I had read "What to expect when you're expecting" and read that some babies get very still once their birth gets closer. I had been having contractions but nothing too serious. I called the after hours clinic and spoke to a nurse and gave her my symptons. She told me to drink orange juice and lay down on my side. The sugar should make my… Continue

Grief is the natural, healthy, spontaneous, unlearned, normal, emotional, healing process that occurs after a significant loss.
Grief is experienced uniquely by each of us, and is often experienced in waves, with emotions, thinking, physical, social and spiritual/religious responses coming and going in terms of the intensity, duration and order of our reactions to the loss.
One of the keys to coping is awareness. Awareness is helped if you can learn about yourself. This… Continue

I know I have to let you go.
How I will, I do not know.
I know that it's your time to die.
What I don't know is how to say goodbye.
I'll miss you so much
I don't know what to do.
I guess I'll just end this poem
with a goodbye and an I love you.
I thought of you with love today
but that is nothing new
I thought about you yesterday
and days before that too,
I think of you in silence
I often speak your name
All I… Continue

Today it is 22 weeks. If I could get a chance to talk to you, I would like to ask following questions:
1. Why did you go so suddenly?
2. Did you hurt as bad leaving us as I am hurting since that day being deserted by you?
3. Why did you make those marriage vows of taking care of me in sickness and health if you were going to leave anyways?
4. Do you have even a tiny idea how bad all of us are affected by your sudden departure?
5. Are You Okay?
6. When will my… Continue

03/29/08 My husband left for work, he never got to come home! He worked at a concrete plant and as he walked out of the batch house (trailer in the middle of the plant) he looked to the left and saw an 18 wheeler with a co-worker in it waiving at him so he waived back and as he did a hollister bobcat with NO backup beeper backed over him and killed him instantly! I sure miss him and I too have a hard time leaving my house, once I'm out I feel better but it takes hours to get out....

It is three month now! I feel this nightmare is not ending for me 'just being here' without my Baby Fernando. I am still figuring out what I supposed to do, apart from making everyone aware of Lung Cancer and wanting to fight against the medical establishment. But what about Fernando and me we suppose to be together forever growing old so we can see our children bringing up our grandchildren and then we can fulfill the duty we so looked forward to 'spoiling' our gandkids rotten and smile when… Continue

Well, today would have been 26 years for us..Amazing!! I can't believe that I have been without Tom for over a year. Life just keeps moving forward and I am just along for the ride. I am not sure I can keep up. I am just existing in this life. And as horrible as it sounds I am waiting for the time when we can be together again. Everyday is a countdown. I know that sounds so pathetic. I have our kids, and a new granddaughter, Lilyanna Tommi, to keep me going, but GOD how I miss my love!!!

Over these last few months, I thought I'd finally gotten to a point where I was finding myself again. I haven't cried in months and been able to switch off my thoughts of you when they tried to consume me. I think with the aniversary of your death approaching this Thursday, I am unable to get you out of my mind. It still hurts so bad. You left me, and mom and dad. I just wonder if you knew everything that has happened since you left, would you have made the same decision? Do you still think the… Continue

Do not be afraid of change. Change forces you to grow and, hopefully, become a better, more fully developed person.
It is you who will decide how your grief will affect your life. On one hand, you can sink deep into your grief and never see that there is still life going on around you -- life in which you can participate. On the other hand, you can be proactive in adjusting to your new circumstances and see all the positive things around you.
As I’ve mentioned previously,… Continue

I am a failure. I have always tried not to fail, to get good grades, be a good friend a good wife, a good mother, a good employee. But I am faced with the fact that I have failed. The ultimate failure is my daughter is not alive, she died, of no cause, no one can tell me what happened, why at 28 months my beautiful little girl did not wake up, she does not get to live and I failed her. Every single day I feel that failure in the fact that she is no longer here. I should be slathering her and… Continue

I just saw an ad for a new movie, its called "Despicable me". it is animated and I don't know why but in looking at the commercial I KNOW it would make you laugh, even though it is too old for you, I KNOW you would like it, I know what laugh it would be, the belly laugh that starts out slow and builds. I KNOW exactly what your face would look like as you smiled and what your body would feel like as it shook with the laughter. I know your sisters will want to see it but this… Continue

Noah Leslie Mook 5/20/81-7/7/81
Noah is my 3rd son. Though his life was short, he left a legacy. He was not only my son but David's first chance to be the "big" brother. He was the big brother that Jason and Elizabeth haven't gotten to meet yet. He's Maddy's Uncle Noah and she sees his picture on the shelf. Even though he's been gone almost 29 yrs. There will always be a Noah shaped hole in my heart.
Happy Birthday Noah!… Continue
