Hi Diane thanks for writing. It is very sad. But they were very special people too and they were here. The one grief poem ended they existed. they did. we created them and that is why we loved them so much. i had so many make ups to him. and he was mad. he was right I was wrong. so very wrong. I can't stand it really but it comes and goes. Carrie L
Hi Phils mamma I am morgans momma but he is gone. and I cannot take him to the movies or skiing anymore. I remember his cuteness when he was small and how he loved puzzles He was such a great kid never bored. But I guess when he became ateen ager he tried to avoid work. then of course like all the boys he played those games. I remember that one he got at 5 or so mortal combat. what a nasty game but they loved them all through the years. I wish i had taken them more on family trips and had more lessons. even now.... it is so sad i am so sorry no hope just going on. carrie L

Diane, you can definitely share Morgan's song with someone. And your husband too. I am so very honored that you would share her song. Thank you. Please tell the mother who lost her daughter, that I am so sorry. Let me know the daughters name so I can tell Morgan. Take care, Larry
Ohhh...so the loss of your Philip is recent, too. And your Philip was also way too young. I am SO sorry. Do you have any other children? I am just wondering. I also have a 19-year old son named Tim (Timothy). If you ever want to talk...about how you feel, what happened - anything! - please feel free to personally email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your personal note, Diane. I don't even remember what I have on my profile (and I'm new to this site, so I can't figure out how to look it up!), but my son's name is Philip also. He is the young man in the striped shirt in my profile photo. He passed away on 9-25-09 at the way-too-young age of 21. Blessings to you.
Diane, I told my wife what you said. She was honored to meet you also. Just trying to survive. It's so hard to move forward. I also go on The Compassionate Friends site and chat room. I have met many parents and some grandparents who are on the same journey. What a beautiful group of people. The chats are usually in the evening, 9 to 10 and sometimes 10 to 11. I don't know how or why, but I feel a little peace when I'm talking and listening to these wonderful people. I'm very glad you like to listen to Morgan's song. I love to hear it too, even though it makes me cry everytime. Please take care and I hope your husband takes care too. Thinking of you, Philip and Morgan all the time.
HELLO MS PHIL MOM THK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR WORDS OF SUPPORT IM VERY MUCH GRATEFUL THAT YOU WOULD TAKE TIME OUT TO RESPOND TO MY POST AND IT IS TRUELY A BLESSING TO HAVE KIND PEOPLE LIKE YOURSELF TO HURT INSIDE BUT STILL BE KIND ENOUGH TO UPLIFT SOMEONE ELSE IN THEIR TIME OF SORROW GOD BLESS YOU AND YOU TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF AS WELL THKS AGAIN GOODNIGHT FOR NOW.
You are truely one of the few who really know what I feel and what I am going through daily just to remember to breath. I wonder what would happen if I decided not to. It hurts today sooooooooooo bad I guess because I'm alone again today and I have all the time in the world to just sit and miss him.
Appreciate your note so much. I really think my sadness just grows. . .I cannot stop crying and thinking about Philip. I miss him so much. I listen to Morgans Song and just cry and cry because so much of it speaks to him. He was such a sweet, simple, kind person. I thank you for thinking of us when your grief is so huge. I really think, Larry, that I just cannot stand this. How many years without him? Please tell your wife I send her all my love and the two of you take care as much as you can.
Diane, just wanted to say hi. Thinking of you and Philip. Just so sad all the time. even though it makes me cry so much I still love listening to Morgan's music. It helps me to know I will see her again some day soon. Maybe I will meet your precious Philip too, I hope. Please take care, Larry
Diane, I am glad you and your husband liked the music and Morgan's Song. Remember, even though some of the words don't match, this is also in honor of Philip. Morgan would not want it any other way. I cry so hard when I listen to Morgan's Song, but I still have to listen to it often. I do think of Philip and all the children when I listen. I hope that through this music and tears and outpouring of love, it can help us find just a little peace in our new lives. As we go on Loving and Missing Morgan and Philip, we can also make sure that they will live on in our hearts, and many other peoples hearts. Take care and stay in touch. Larry
Diane, i think we are all special people, coping with our deepest pain, and deep heartache...i will never feel normal again, and i am definately not the same person i used to be, i have too much anger right now.. i hope you are doing as well as can be expected which isn't well at all is it????thank you for your thoughts, and i also am truly sorry for the loss of your precious son Phil...our boys know we love them, and will see them again someday... take care, tammy
Thank you for the note. it will be a hard day again. I have been in really really bad shape the last few weeks. Sorry I lost contact. I have the cd of Morgan's concert. I am very disappointed with it. The guy that did the audio recording didn't do a very good job. There are parts missing. After I got the edited version, and heard it I asked for the original so maybe I can edit it better myself. I would like to send you a copy, so let me know your address. If you don't want to post your address here I don't blame you. We can figure out a better way. Also a very talented singer song writer named Ken Medema, wrote a song for her. It is beautiful. If you would like I can send you a copy of that too. I think of you and Philip all the time. I told my wife you are thinking of her too. She thanks you and prays for Philip. Please take care, Larry
Diane, I received the check from the church. I cashed it and put it into the fund for the charity. Thank you very much. To have you and Ronald donate to this charity in the name of my daughter Morgan, is such a great act of compassion. I could not help myself, when they showed me the check I cried. We only meet here, and don't even know each other. Except that we are all on the worst journey ever imaginable. It was my honor, to have Philips name read with the others. The total raised was $1,900. If by some miracle, it saves the life of at least one child, it is worth every penny. Like everyday, I will be thinking of you and Philip. I always tell Morgan to say hi to Philip for me. Please take care, your friend Larry
