Thank you Garry. I appreciate your comment. Forgive me, but I couldn't find any information about your loss but I would like to extend my sympathy to you and your family.

Sometimes we just need to share a memory of our child. Something written in the universe that affirms his soul was here and it was here for a purpose. And his existence meant something. I've given up trying to reason out the loss or determine a purpose. I just trust that if I make a conscious decision to live that somehow my life will bear out the reason for this loss. I believe making the decision to live a life is the best I can do. Layers of pain come and I can always feel them blowing in and I try to avoid them at times because I know the pain is waiting. Once I accept the feelings and go thru yet another layer of grief, I feel stronger and hopefully wiser. I am here if you ever want to share.

Thanks Garry for befriending me. I know that no one that has not lost a child understands us as WE the ones that grieving, or not grieving have something in common. Yes, our young ones left before we did. None the less, there is hope. Hope that we are not going to feel as bad as the beginning. We can not, because our loved ones would not want us to suffer and continue to hammer ourselves with grief and sorrow. Yet, we all know that with a Higher Power than ourselves we can and we will continue on. There is a reason. There is a purpose for our loss. We might not understand it now, but we will understand it some day. God does know the end from the beginning. May we continue to trust that HE will be with us and guide us until the end, when we will see and embrace our loved ones again. Blessings to all of us. Lift up our faces because redemption draweth night.

Hi Garry. I am sorry to hear about your daughter. My Sophia died of positional asphixiation. She was swaddled and put to sleep propped up on a pillow. and a pillow put by her feet. During her nap she rolled off the pillow and onto her face on the pillow by her feet. I was there when my Mom found her. I had just gotten off work and was there to pick up my girls. I tried to resusitate her. Oh the horror. There was chaos, screaming, but in the end, she died. I am having a hard time forgiving my Mother, her care taker that day. Knowing that her death was completely preventable is what is killing me inside.

I would like to know more about your baby girl. I am so sad that this happens. Why did it have to happen?

hi garry. Sorry it has taken so long to get back. Yes I would like to tell you the story of jessica and mandy. It takes a lot of courage to talk about the greatest losses of my life and any one elses lives that have lost children or loved ones. The story is very long. Sometime you may want to look up the articles written on mandy and jessica porter from muwonago wisc. It was all over the news and I have written some articles to the mukwonago chief news paper. Mandy porter is also on utube. My story is long and a constant battle as to what to do as jessicas death was ruled as a suicide but things just don't add up. Do I let it go or do I fight something that I have already been in jail for. I will tell you more in the future. Thank you

Hi Garry not sure how you knew I needed your help, maybe your an angel reaching out to me. My husband passed away on 12.08.10 and I'm finding life extremly difficult, especially being a good mother. Finances are bad too so I may lose my house. I just want to go away and hide and Christmas I cant face at all....dreading it. I cant sleep in our bed.....I cant sit in his chair. I cant throw anything away of his......even his last cigarette. Life's so sad and I know it's only going to get worse!

Hi Garry,
My name Sandy. I lost my husband of 33 years in April 2010 after a 4 year battle with conjestive heart disease. For the last 1 and 1/2 I cared for him at home. He as bedridden as well as having Alzeimers Disease. When he came home for the hospital the Doctors said to put him in a long term facitily. I could not do it. I had to cut my hours at work hire a sitter when I did work and run up the charges. I had to work for the benefits (life insurance he was 80 at the time). After he past away I had guilt feelings about

the grief is something I will never get over. The guilt. The shame. The shoul have would have and could have haves really would control me if I let them. I miss my girls beyond any measures of trying to put the pieces together. I haven't even dealt with my thirteen year olds suicide yet. I just can't go there. I find myself hinding in men and every day life not being able to deal with the fact that my 16 and 13 year old daughters are gone. I keep hoping they will walk through the door and the flash backs are un controllable at times. I feel like this is all a dream and I will never have satisfaction again.
