Candice May

I just lost my husband Monday Sept. 26. It feels like I'm in a bad dream. We just celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary on Sept. 11th. We have one daughter Jasmine who is 16. We are praying and trying to make sense of our loss.  I miss him so much and feel such pain right now.  I guess it will get better. I just trusting God will help me get through this.

Michael Walsh 8.10.86~5.20.11

I lost my older brother May 20, 2011 to a Malpractice during surgery. He was only 25 years old and the death was very sudden because the surgery was very minor, we all expected him home for dinner as usual.  He was such a huge part of our daily lives. He made me laugh everyday, he taught me something new everyday, and he worried me everyday.  He was a hypochondriac and that may have been why we didnt expect anything to go wrong with the surgery.  We believed the doctors who cleared him for…

Wear blue in memory of Sarah

The Rex Allen Days Committee is dedicating the Rex Allen Days Parade to my little sister, Sarah Broeder. Sarah's favorite color was blue. So, I had this idea that on the day of the parade, people could wear blue to show her that they're thinking about her. It could be something as simple as a blue shirt. But I understand that some people who are in the parade have very strict dress codes, so I have in my possession, beautiful blue ribbons that people marching in the parade can wear on their…

Now that it's been 8 months I get the look, (your still crying)?

People look at you as if they can't believe that you still want to talk about it. I lost time between January and now and I can't believe 8months have passed. I still find myself saying he needs to just stop this and come home. I can not tell you the fear inside of me about the Holidays coming. And I will admit, I knew nothing would be there for my birthday But I went into the kitchen like I've done for 27 years and looked on the table and cried like a baby because nothing was there. They…

My stepson killed himself yesterday

I don't know how to help my husband with his grief.  His daughter blames herself.  He just had enough and shot himself.

He is only 22 years old and was to nicest boy, no drugs or and problems.  He just did it.  I don't understand but maybe it is not for me to understand.  He is in a better place.  I got up this morning to the most beautiful clouds and I became at peace with the whole thing.  I wish I could give this to my husband.

I am posting this on behalf of Elizabeth Broeder.

I HAVE AN IDEA!!!!!! (it's a little late notice) but I thought maybe, because this year's Rex Allen Days is dedicated to Sarah Rose Catherine Broeder, her friends could wear BLUE to the parade...for the ones that won't be in the parade, just wear a blue shirt or sumthin.. but if some of her friends are in the parade, it would look so cool if were little splashes of blue through out the parade lines ... but I understand if some people have really strict dress codes for the parade ... so… Continue

A Working Mom’s Dilemma

Every mother wants to be the best kind of mother for her children. Almost anyone who is a mother desires nothing but the best kind of life for her children and family. However, in the world today, it isn’t a new sight to see mothers having to desire these good things alone. Oftentimes, you will find mothers raising their children alone, struggling to balance from one to three jobs, to spending enough time with the children. And one of the reasons for such situations is the death of a…

My Mom

My beloved mom have been 11 years that I saw her last and I do love her more than anything else in this world. We had too many dreams that will never come through that is to hug each other and I would tell her how much I miss her during all this time we were away from each other. The things she though me have been changed my life. She was the most kind and sweet person I ever know.

Can't get used to this

I'm surprised at how devastating the loss of my parents this year has been to me.  I'd been mentally preparing for this for a long time, especially regarding my father, who'd been declining for years. Both had reached a ripe old age.  The biggest shock was my mom, though she was 89.  She was always, and continued to be, lively and involved in many activities at the assisted living place where they lived.  But she was wasting away, and I hadn't realized how badly, because she's always been…

Unable to let go...

Hello, my name is Eleanor. I joined because after being a widow for over 2 years....I am still grieving the loss of my husband of 38 years. We shared a wonderful life with my 2 sons. I experienced the most life-changing events in the past two years that traumatized my whole being. I did not have the skills to cope with Bob's death which happened after he had a successful kidney transplant. He died of heart failure about 20 minutes after being discharged from the hospital. I am…

May 21, 2011: My Personal Day of Rapture

In January, 2010, Harold Camping, an eighty-eight year-old self professed Biblical scholar and radio Evangelist announced that the end of the world would occur on May 21, 2011.  By Spring, 2011, billboards were seen on roadways across the United States.  Philadelphia was no exception to the proclamation that the righteous would be taken in whole body and soul into Heaven in…
