what a beautiful son. My son Bobby was 24 when he passed away Nov. 9, 2009 He was hit by a car while working in Florida he lived 4 days but never woke up. I live in Utah. I with Bobby's wife and his little sister, and youngest brother flew there and were with him when he died. I am now pretty much raising his son James age 3 I would not know what to do without him. I struggle everyday. It never seems to get easier does it? How long has it been for you? Bobby's mom (Michelle)
The worst thing to feel is, losing your child. When i lost my daughter Misty, I didnt know how to feel, but i certainly felt pain, loss, desperation to change it , I even felt an instantness to do anything to bring her back, cloaning , anything. I didnt want to lose her. I couldnt believe I was even thinking of such things that were against my religion, my God to gain my daughter back. But more than anything i felt I had the reassurance that even though we wouldnt have her in our life anymore, I had the reassurance that she was okay now, safe now. I didnt have to worry for the rest of my life about her well being or safety in this world. She was where she wanted to be with her Lord and savior and that was comforting. My story might not bring you comfort but I pray that God instills in you the grace and mercy he provided me with during my loss that was the only way I made it through. God works all things for the good, how can he after such horrible loss??? Trust me, he does. You cannot blame yourself or anyone, things just happen, and we never know to know or when. Life is very precious and we realize that especially when we lose someone we love especially our own child. God is helping you through this, it might seem as though he's being silent, but he is there with you. Healing from this pain takes time. Im here if you need to talk to someone. God bless you & your family.
First I am very sorry for the loss of your young son.
Second, I cannot imagine anyone saying such a thing to a person who has lost a family member. Pretty insentitive comment.
All of in this "group" of Loss of a Child, feels your deep painful loss, no matter how old our children were when they left us. We will always be thinking of them year after year and they will forever be in our hearts.
Hopefully with the size of your family they will continue to give you the emotional support you need and friends like the one that made that comment are far and few between. Hopefully that person will never suffer the loss that we have, because only then will they realize what a ridiculous statement that is.
May you find some peace today and also in the posts on this site. I find it very comforting to view comments and know we are all feeling the same
Triny I'm sorry to read your hearts still ache with sadness I am praying for you. The Bible assures us: “God is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.” (Psalm 34:18)
GABRIEL MALONE, 19, our always smilling son, brother, and friend of Houston, Texas passed on to be with the Lord on Tuesday, August 5th 2008. Gabriel is survived by his parents Ray and Triny Malone, his brothers who loved him dearly; Johnnie Ray, Jacob, Abel, and Bennie Salvidar, Benny's wife Lisa and their son little Benny. Gabriel will be greatly missed by his family and friends. Gabriel loved to write poems, box and throw those famous karate kicks. He was also known to be very dramatic, that he never said "no" when asked to participate in a drama for Church. No one will miss Gabriel more than his mother Triny. "I can't express with words how much I love you but I know God loves you so much more than me, there is nothing compared to God's love. I cannot say Goodbye to you my Baby; I'm only saying I will see you in a little while. I love you so much Gabriel, your Mom." The family will receive family and friends @ 11:00am at Apostolic Bible Center, 14615 Aldine Westfield, Houston, TX 77039 on August 8, 2008. A vigil service will follow at 7pm. A memorial service will be held Saturday morning August 9, 2008 @ 10am @ Apostolic Bible Center. Interment to follow @ Forest Park Lawndale Cemetery, 6900 Lawndale, Houston, TX. Thank You and God Bless you all for your love and support, The Malone Family. Funeral arranged by Trevino & Sons Funeral Home 3911 Fulton St. Houston, Texas.
