Rory, its Tammy, Ashleigh's Mom, its been quite awhile since I have been on here, I am brought myself back from the brink of it all. I am checking up on you, I know better to ask if you are ok, when people ask me that, I say no I will never be ok, but I am here and I guess thats something. They are still searching for my Ashleigh;'s killers over a year and they have not caught the monsters yet, oh I am here and thats about all I can say.....

I'm just existing in this world. What ever I think will help me through this I do or say I have a care anymore. My family has fell apart my husband secretly cries sometimes he talk to me about Brandon, one son refused to talk to us because of the hurt and guilt due to the fact his girlfriend refused to let him talk to his brother the same day because she wanted all his attention, the oldest just won't say anything if the conversation comes up, I've been accused by them saying that I think Brandon was the only child I ad lots of hurtful stuff and I know it was due to the pain in their heart for their brother so I took it without getting into to heated discussion, it as and still is hell/hurt (if that's a word) I stopped going to church due to dumb statements and when I see them out whenever I go out I don't stop or have any conversation I wave and keep moving. The one that gets me is they tell me not to be angry God will take care of those who hurt us yea right I say well did not God get angry and threw them out of the church because they had turned it into a den of thieves misusing the place so why can't i be angry, I get no answer I walk away.
I just can't bring myself to go to the grave site that's the last thing on how I want to remember my son. I hate this.

I totally agree with you, If their in a better place why does the Word (bible) says honor thy mother and father and you will live a long life, If you confess my Word and believe in your heart you will have everlasting life,all that stuff in the bible has not showed my it is true, why give me a children to raise in the word then take it form me before they reach adulthood, how can they be in a better place when they were is the best place,placed with their parents.It's a Spiritual thing we're to believe in what we can't see but suffer for what we could see now we can't it is crazy mixed up and I don't want any part of no one sayings. Sorry to vent but I go off when I'm told that too, how the hell do you know it's a better place for my child (that's what I say) to the dumb statements.

I did go back to the doctor last Wednesday and they are saying that he had a 2 vessel umbilical cord. He showed me the ultrasounds I had during my pregnancy, and it looks like 3, which is normal and either way, that should have been caught, and had it been, there were things that could have been done to prevent my son from being stillborn.

I thought I was holding it together pretty well on Mother's Day until we got to church. My husband meant well but he ordered me a corsage and signed the card "from Baby Logan". I lost it big time. I ran into the ladies room and sobbed for 15 minutes. I had to pull together and get back to Mass but I was in a fog the rest of the day. And I'm grandma. I don't know how moms can do this.

tell your daughter to just try to remember the good times..it's not easy..my 1st mothers day with out caden was 2 weeks later and my older sons bday was only a few days after cadens death..it is so hard b/c there is nothing anybody can say or do to make it better,what gets me through is knowing that god is taking care of our kids

This has really been a tough day. Spent Easter at my daughter's with my other grandchildren but the absence of Logan was so hard. Went to his grave to lay flowers and it really hit hard that I will never see him again or look into those gorgeous blue eyes or hear him laugh. Miss him sooooo much!!

Rory, I haven't any grandchildren yet, it sounds so special a relationship between you and yours. My deepest ach goes out to you with hope and faith you will find the balance you need,,well,,,we all need. As we couldn't see forward to 5 months but we're here. I guess we'll find that balance somewhere in the future we can't see right now. I hate looking to the future, I know we'll never see it as we always did,,,that's where we need to find that balance and continue to remember their spirits are with us always and everywhere. God Bless You Rory xxxxx ooooooo bwj

Thank you so much. You said exactly what I have been feeling. And my daughter says exactly the same thing. The what ifs and if onlys. And the most important one, I should have known something was wrong. She has a grief therapist, so he helps her, which I'm happy for that. What you said hit it on the head. Thank you for your message.

You are an awesome grandfather. I am so sorry. Whatever this "new normal" is I feel I cannot breathe some days. The person I knew myself to be doesn't exist anymore. I get through work just to hold it in until I leave. I love my three other children and my husband but not one of us has any happiness in us. We miss our son/brother. We miss the Holbrook 6 together. We miss our life. We grieve that he did not get to live his life here.

I love that boy; for almost 19 years he lit up my life and my world everyday.

I don't know what the future brings, but this is emotional devastation for my family. I need to see my son again. I will see him again.

My priest said to me: if there is no God, than this is all a joke. And, if there is a God, Chad is with him and you will be reunited again.

I'm counting on that.

Lisa (Chad's Mom)

I miss Logan so much. It's been 5 months - it seems an eternity since I held him and yet the pain is a sharp as ever. I love you, pony boy!

Hi Rory, I dont remember where I got it, but here it is, just click the right button on your mouse and click on SAVE PICTURE AS, look where it is saving it because you will have to find it, I usually try to save it to my desk top so It is easier to find. Hugs to you and if you cant do this, you can send me your email address and I will send it that way

Thank you Rory, justice will be served for Ashleigh. These monsters will be caught, if its the last thing I do on the Earth. Some people just don't think what pain we are in. They think because we are functioning that we are "all better" well newsflash, we will never, ever be "all better". and that is the truth. Praying for you and us all. Tammy

This is so hard when people do dumb things - like forward emails about my grandson's death because it was the easiest way to invite people over for a party. Huh? Or the teacher who wants "proof" that Logan died since my daughter was absent from school for the funeral. May they never know the pain I'm in that they caused.

I lost my precious grandson, Logan, last month. He was born with a heart defect, had open heart surgery at 2 months of age and seemed to be getting stronger and better. He left us when he was 14 months old. I am relieved to find this site where I can read and understand that grieving is okay and I don't have to smile and put up with useless comments and stupid questions.
