Supporting the bereaved after a suicide

A member of my community took his life. It was a sudden and traumatic loss and while some people treated his widow with kindness, she shared that she was unprepared for the hurtful actions of others. For example, she saw a friend walking towards her one morning in our small town. The friend saw her too and she quickly crossed the street to avoid her. A colleague also shared a hurtful experience following the suicide of her physician brother. Though she was a child, she vividly…

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

Family Rifts and Funerals

Q. My father died recently, but I did not learn of his death until weeks after the funeral. He lived with his second wife, who caused a family rift after their marriage, and kept me out of the loop. (I live halfway across the country.) I feel angry and bereft at the same time. Are there any words of comfort you can offer? Also there is no head stone at the grave. Can I put one up?

A. I can’t imagine how painful your situation is. You’ve been denied closure and the…

Lessons from my dad

I see my mother everywhere. Though I never looked like her, I can now see a physical resemblance and so many of my qualities remind me of her. Not so for my dad. Everyone said I looked like him but I no longer can see the resemblance. I never had the good fortune to get to know him and he wasn’t part of my life long enough for me to emulate him in any way.

My father died when I was eleven. While his death was devastating, my mother dedicated herself to raising four…

Messages to Those Who Remain after A Loved Dies

Pictures 09 08 & 10 08-06.jpgDeath speaks to the living as we gather to celebrate a life which is temporarily cessated. The "good news" is that the dead in "Christ" shall be reunited in heaven one day with Jesus.

Ifind this hope most comforting. My sister suffered greatly with colon cancer and a life time of abuse/neglect. I was very sad when I came to the… Continue

My Grandsons

I just wanted to post my thoughts on the loss of my twin grandsons, Daniel James and Jordin Alexzander.

They were taken before their time in April, and I still can't get over it. From the moment I saw their first ultrasound, I had so much love in my heart for them. Words can't describe. Watching them grow, watching their little arms and legs kicking and waving. Precious little ones who I couldn't wait to see.

My daughter lost them after spending nearly 2 weeks in the… Continue

my brother committed suicide

My younger brother committed suicide in November. I found him. He had shot himself in the head. it is still hard to believe and I sometimes wonder if it will ever sink in. I don't understand what happened. He was living and telling lies. I depended on him to take care of my parents & now he's not here. I am doing the best I can to help my parents, but it is hard to deal with. I just don't know how to accept it and go on with my life. How do you ever understand?

If we had only known...

On March 5, 2009 my husband and a friend went snowmobiling...one of Tom's favorite past times. There was nothing unusual about this except the phone call at 5:15 that afternoon. It was Jason saying Tom had somehow flipped his sled and they were airlifting him to the hospital. I really thought they were kidding around trying to play a joke on me.. BAD JOKE!! But, as he talked I realized he wasn't joking...my comment to him was "You aren't freaking kidding me are you?" What a comment. Jason kept… Continue

I am missing my sister so much. She died 2/24/09 of lung cancer and no she did not smoke but my dad died of lung cancer 6/3/1977 and that is a risk factor. He did smoke. I find it hurtful when people ask if she smoked like then she would have deserved it because no one does! Julie was my best friend and in many ways was my link to the world. Julie was the ultimate extrovert and lit a room up the minute she went in, never met a stranger and had many many friends. I on the other hand am the… Continue
