I've been trying to write but when I hit "Send", nothing happens! I wonder if you've received any of the messages I sent. If not, I'll have to try a different way to reply. Sorry it's been taking so long. Hope you're as well as can be expected today.
Paula, My heart goes out to you on this first anniversary of losing your son, Dec. 7th. He looks like a very kind person. Why is it that the best ones are taken from us so young? I lost my 38-yr. old son to pneumonia on 6/8/09 and am still having trouble dealing with the pain of not having him in our lives. He had gone to his doctor but she dismissed him as being "not that sick". He died 10 days later. He was kind, smart, funny, loved animals, especially cats, and was the family peacemaker. He seemed so much younger than his 38 years, which is what made him so much fun to be around.
Thanks Paula and I hope your Mother's Day was nice, My youngest daughter came and spent the Mother's Day weekend with me and my youngest Son was here the week before, my oldest daughter and her boys were here in Feb. they have been trying really hard to keep my mind occupied do you have other children, If so keep them around you it makes things and time go by smoother........................
Thank you so much for thinking of me on Mother's Day.
I hope the day brought you good memories of your precious son.
I'm fortunate to have three sons that were extra sweet on my first Mother's Day without my daughter, Autumn. So that did make things better, as well as spending the day with my mom and sister fishing and then having friends over for dinner later. I was busy all day and didn't have time to "think" much, so that was good.
Thank you and I hope your day was filled with warm memories of Jimmy. My Brett was 35 and he was killed in a head on collision last July. My world stopped that day and half my heart has died. I am one of the fortunate moms to have been blessed with another child and she keeps me going. I don't know what I would d without her.Did your son have children?
I know that God never gives us a cross we cannot bear but this time I just can't seem to budge mine. I am so sorry for loss Paula......
I'm not very familiar w/p.c.'s so I don't know. Someone from this site put it on here for me. I suffer from a TBI I received in a car wreck in '97. I'm disabled for life. I was 40 when it happened. I was working full time as a Credit Manager for a wholesale window mfg co. in Ontario, CA. I can't remember the name of the lady who helped me. (that's from my TBI-Traumatic Brain Injury) My friend jokingly calls it CRS-Can't Remember Shit! Anyway, here's the poem: When tomorrow starts without me and I'm not here to see...If the sun should rise and find your eyes filled with tears for me. I wish so much you wouldn't cry the way you did today...While thinking of the many things we didn't get to say. I know how much you love me, as much as I love you...And each time you think of me, I know you'll miss me too. When tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart...For every time you think of me, I'm right here in your heart.
Hope you had a good mothers day thank you for writing me mine was pretty good my kids were wonderful and got me a locket with a poem on one side and their names on the other, we all ate together but even though my youngest daughter sat in his seat thanking I wouldn't notice a pieice of the family was missing and will until we all are together again in heaven.
How are YOU doing Paula? I'm so streesed out about Candace, I've lost my manners. I love what you wrote on this site, "I'm thankful he holds my child and i'm glad there will be room for me."I love this sight! So many of us contribute meaningful poems or sayings that we can relate to, because they're where we are!
Hi. I'm hangin' in there. This'll be the 2nd Mother's Day w/o Candace. And she's only been gone 1 yr and 1 month! She passed April 9th, '10! Thank you for your prayers. They're working. I had to take pills from my dr when I first found out. (only one refill because they're addicting) My Dad lives in Utah. (Mormon) His congregation has been praying for me also. I wrote notes to write back to you,but I'm sorry. I can't even decipher my own writing! PS I'm Christian,no biggy, as long as we believe in a Higher power. Candace went into another dimension or spirit world. I felt her 2 days after she oased. I KNOW it was her!! There IS an afterlife!
Hi Paula, we lost our sons so close together one month apart and their birthdays were also a month apart my son would have turned 18 feb 9th and graduated in May, I see all his friends this week talking about what they did on spring break, we were arguing for the lsat year about him going to south padra island for his senior trip i kept saying no its to dangerous but he kept saying yes and bunch of his friends were going and he would be 18, God how I wish I was worried about him being there instead of knowing i will never see him again, never see him get married or have children, they say God carries us through these times, but sometimes I feel like he drops me and I have to carry this burden alone and that is something I just can't do.
Today is a day that used to bring celebration and happiness. Try to remember all of those past birthdays and all the happiness his "birth" had brought you. I will be keeping you in peaceful thoughts today. Be patient with yourself. We just celebrated my daughters (33) year old birthday last week, Mar 1. It was the second birthday without her. Broken hearts dont even touch our feelings on birthdays and as a matter of fact, all the other days.
thank you for your letter, and Happy Borthday wishes to Jimmy. We still celebrate Tim's birthdays, with a blue cake. I suppose I always will. Do a little something for you today and celebrate all the wonderful years you had with Jimmy. *hugs* Take care of you.
Dear Paula - I lost my only child, Tyler, at age 24 on 01/26/10. You are right - it doesn't matter what age they are. I will never see him marry, have a family, be there for me when I am old. Some days I think I might make it, other days I can't imagine how I could possibly go on another day. This site is here for each and every one of us.
