Childhood Cancer Awareness one lemonade stand at a time

September is Childhood (Pediatric) Cancer Awareness Month. To commemorate it, we're spotlighting an amazing young girl who, before she succumbed to the childhood cancer neuroblastoma at age 8, founded a major effort to fund childhood cancer research.

What’s the protocol for belated notifications of death?

It can happen. You pay for a death notice in the newspaper, but some friends and loved ones live out of town. Maybe you couldn’t find the deceased’s address book and old friends weren’t notified of the death. Or, while reeling from the death of your loved one, no one called a second cousin. So what do you do when you realize, months or even a year later, some folks still don’t know your loved one died?

You can do one of two things; you can…

My grandfather & my brother come to me

Even though I've had premonitional dreams since I was a child (that came true), after my grandfather passed, he came to me the night before he passed, to tell me that he was dying, and had asked for me several times. The following day, my mother called me, and I confronted her about my dream. She denied it, but the day of his funeral, my aunt told me that he HAD asked for me several times. My grandfather still comes to me, and he comforts me, even though it's been 36 years. My brother came to… Continue

Moving on?

December 27th,2008 will be a day that I will never forget, and all I want to do is forget it. I replay that day in my head over and over, and there was nothing more I could have done. That was the day my husband made the choice to take himself out of this world, and out of my and my three boys life.

My cousin was(and did) get married that day, and I had running around to do in the morning. Billy was upset when I got home, because I was gone longer then he…

I will never understand

I always knew how my father would die; he always told us. I expected it. What I didn't expect was for him to do it in front of my little sister. It was more than she could handle. She allowed it to totally consume her. When she decided to eat the bottle of muscle relaxers and stop her heart, she was 35 and had two beautiful babies. They were 8 and 10 at the time. I will never understand how she could leave her kids with the feelings she has left them with. I will never be the same. The two… Continue

I can't think or move and I feel so alone

I am trying to raise funds for my Husbands cremation. and I'm so tired of telling my story and asking for help.

Private Funerals

Q. My neighbor just died, and I’d like to go to the funeral. I’ve been told, however, that the funeral is private. What exactly is a private funeral and why does a family make this choice? It bars people like me who wish to pay their respects.

 

A. My dictionary defines the word “private” in this context as “confined to or intended only for the person or persons immediately concerned.” Unless you are specifically invited, you should not…

Lost my Dad

My father just passed away on Sept. 6, 2010, with his wife, children and grandchildren present. He was the BEST!! He was our rock and not sure how we will get along without him. He was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis about 18 months ago and quickly deteriorated. It was heart wrenching to watch the decline. The one comment he always made and which was part of his funeral was "I've had a Wonderful Life!" If it can be said that the funeral was beautiful it was. What a tribute to a… Continue

Glad to meet you all. It is like a ray of sunshine for me.

I lost my son 4/9/10 suddenly to septic bowel. He had suffered chemically inbalance depression for many years and was just tired of living. One hour after arriving at the hospital emergency room the doctor told us he would not live more than a few hours. That there was nothing to be done. My son being retired from the medical field knew what was happening and requested no C.P.R. or any form of life support. The doctor asked me if I would go along with this and I had to honor my son's wishes.… Continue

Daddy

When I was a little girl, a mear 4 or 5, my daddy used to pick me up, and

dance me across the kitchen floor. I would always sit on daddys lap as

he sat on his rocking chair. He would share his peanuts, and I'd sneak

some of his… Continue

My Sheep

April 6, 2010

This morning, my alarm clock went off, and I said,"Ok Dad, I'm up."

I went to work today for the first time, since you have Crossed Over.

I had a lot of "my sheep" ask, "where have you been, we missed you?"

I replied,"my daddy passed away." they said "We're sorry, are you ok?"

I then said, "I'm hanging in there, just like spider."

Then I explained to them, what I meant.



I sat out front, tonight,…
