My brother was only 27....my other brother shot him and now wants to commit suicide. Please help. Im slipping away.

I'm so glad I found this blog/support site. Maybe for the first time I will feel like someone knows the pain. About a month ago my two older brothers got into an argument, which then escalated into a wresting match, and ultimately the death of my oldest brother. My brother was my best friend and the only family member that I could really talk to. My father passed about 3 years ago within a month of being diagnosed with cancer. My father was abusive to everyone in my family including myself. Now… Continue

My story

 

I lost my husband of 10 years to an accidental drowning.  This was my second marriage and it brought back my faith in love and marriage since my first one of 21 years ended in divorce.  Bruce was a devoted husband to me and made me feel cherished and loved, the way we all should.  I was devestated when he died but I can certainly attest to the power of friends and family,…

McDonald's, Hot Wheels, Mars and a Cat

When Timmy was one year old, I started buying him Hot Wheels.  At first it started with the Happy Meals at McDonald’s.  I would stop at the McDonald’s near Girard Avenue and buy the Happy Meal, eat the burger, fries, and slurp down the soda just to get the toy car for my son.  Timmy enjoyed playing with the Hot Wheels and Matchbox.  I started going to Toys R Us just to find…

My tribute to my husband Dave written on his birthday and Father's Day June 19th, 2011.

Dave,

I wish I could be with you today, to thank you again for the gift of your love.

You are the friend that captured my heart and I never dreamed today we’d be apart.

Thank you so much for helping me to be strong; you lifted my spirits and gave me a song.

You brought joy to my life in so many ways; your love was a gift I treasure in my heart today.

Thank you for so many memories of love and laughter and for those three little boys we both had to chase…

An inspiration to all who have lost young family members

Last week, Canada lost a national heroine. Betty Fox began her time in the spotlight simply as the mother of one of Canada's best-remembered heroes, Terry Fox, who, after being diagnosed with cancer in his late teens, attempted to run across Canada to raise money and awareness for cancer research. An amazing story made all the more…

Today marks the 3rd anniversary of my son's death.  Doesn't seem like it has been that long ago.  There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about him, or see something that reminds me of him on a daily basis.  I knew I loved him the minute I found out I was pregnant with him.  When he was born, I fell in love with him.  He grew up to be a fine young man, he had some set back, but he always seemed to bounce back from those set backs. But June 21st, 2008, he decided that suicide was the… Continue

Still There?

My great-grandparents died three weeks apart to the day.  I knew it would happen, after all they were getting older, but I never expected it when I got the phone call from my Mom. I remember it rained the day of both of their memorial services and it seemed to suit the moods of everyone there. They both had touched so many lives through their generosity, kindness, and their big hearts.  They were very loved. 

About three months or so after they passed away I was walking through Dollar…

Summer 2000, Meeting the Red Ranger

Like most kids, the Power Rangers were a part of my Timmy’s television favorites. It started with the repeats of the original series and the subsequent series. Tim’s toy chest was filled with Power Ranger action figures and Zords, the separate vehicles of each Power Ranger that would combine to giant robot…

Remembering Daisy

This week my thoughts will be devoted to the upcoming birthday of my German Shepherd dog Daisy who died a year and a half ago. Daisy came to me as a puppy at a 5K-road race. It was the last one I attended, realizing that entrance fees would get expensive if I kept bringing stray dogs home.

 

Although I didn’t realize it at the time, she was a very special dog, the kind of dog that we feel lucky to have in our lives. She didn’t ask for much. She wasn’t a fan of being…

Dad ups the ante on Father’s Day

For several weeks, I’ve been finding a coin a day. On Wednesday and Friday, I found a quarter each morning, unusual because I usually find dimes and pennies. On Friday night it was two pennies. Then Saturday morning it was another penny. While most of these were out on my walks or my run, a few of them were as I walked into a store.

 

After the coin Saturday morning, I realized that they were about Father’s Day. And it made me wonder, would I find a coin on Father’s Day…
