Hello Everyone,
All of you are in my prayers for strength. I just survived the two year mark of my son's death. That was Jan. 9th. The day before was really hard for me. All I did was cry and pray that God was with Rich and both of them would help me get through the next 24 hours. God heard me, and answered my prayers. He does hear our cries for help and He will answer us. Saturday, 1/09 our Lord was with
me the whole day. I felt the most peacefulness and thankfulness knowing Rich was in heaven and not suffering anymore. Finally in my mind I don't have to worry about the terrible things going on in this life we live, my Rich is safe from everything. I'm feeling a little guilty at times because of this peacefulness, but I do know that God gave me that gift so I can move on and hopefully help others.
I don't know how I can help, I ask the Lord what my purpose in this life is. However I have not yet
gotten an answer. May the Lord be with all of you and continue to pray and ask for anything, He does hear you so do your children. The kids want us to be at peace and not question the Lord, as to why this terrible thing has happened to them. God be with you

Hi Janie, I think we have similar stories. My son Joey died January 4, 2008 at the age of 32. He had Lou Gehrig's disease for 4 years and we cared for him his last two years. Next week, February 4, 2004, is the six year anniversary of his diagnosis. In July of 2005 the year after his diagnosis, my mom was diagnosed with cancer and came to my house to die. She died August 25. Six months later Joey could not longer manage on his own and he moved back home. He fought every day to live life to the fullest ... the day he died he went swimming but knew it would be his last time... I have so much guilt and sorrow over the fact that we couldn't help him more. I don't know how to stand this pain. I know he's with God but I just want to touch his face and tell him I love him. From Thanksgiving to now has been a downhill spiral... I keep thinking of how much he suffered. He was such a good, kind, loving person. I know he is free now and feel his loving spirit. He's been gone two years but we have been grieving for 6, ever since his diagnosis... I pray for all of us who have lost a child... I pray we find peace. God Bless you Janie.
