hi shari, i do a balloon release every month on his anniv date, 28 of every month. he was born on june 28,1984 aND passed on aug 28,2009 worst year ,month and date in my forever life.
i also light candles off and on/ if i am really missing him, then i light a candle/ thank your for all your warm and sweet message. love, valerie
ps. your son, is so handsome.
As I have also lost a precious son, may I suggest writing little messages and placing them inside of balloons, to be released at either the cemetary or in front of the church or somewhere where
there is beautiful scenery! The messages would be for your Beloved Son except for one which would be for God! Then to honor his memory you might consider spending the rest of the day being very good to yourself! Maybe have a nice meal out so you don't have to cook, or a movie, or just buy yourself some little gift. Something to make your heart smile!
Have one of your sons favorite foods and say as you are eating, this is for you son!
My son loved Tacos so I went and had some and as I was eating them I said This is for you son!
All my good wishes,
My Dear Precious New Friends,
This message is for all of you...first I send you all my love and prayers because now we are all a family! That's right, we are a family of bereaved and that makes us one powerful family! We are all in the same boat, so to speak, and the sea is rough and turbulent and I'm sure every single one of us at one time or another just wants to scream! WHY! WHY! WHY! WHY GOD WHY!
There is no answer that would ever make sense to me, not on this earth plain!
I have lost my mother, my father, my Auntie, (she was a second mother to me) my husband and now my son! I have also lost two wonderful girlfriends who were more like the sisters I never had. Even my precious dogs were a big loss to me. I went through seven and I still have one who is almost twenty years old! I tell you good people, if you ask me about life,I get confused, but if you ask me about death, I am an expert!
My beloved husband passed 8-6-07 and now my only child, my beloved son
passed on 12-28-10. I am numb from all of it, I am really just numb! It is as if my mind is protecting me so I don't go insane! That is how bad I feel. I can't go to pieces because it won't help anything and it certainly will Not bring my son back! When I lost my mother and I was only fifteen years old I did go to pieces and to this day I haven't really got over that first loss, not to mention all that came after! It is only human nature to feel like the saying goes;
"Misery likes Company!" Of course we would not wish this misery on any one, we all know that,
but since we are all in the same boat, it is comforting to know that we are not alone!
I, for one, am deeply grateful for this group and all your kind comments and I just want you all to know that. God Bless Us All!
