Hello Carol, I so understand how your feeling.....I'm not in any mood to celebrate anything this yr...I didn't even want to celebrate Thanksgiving if it wasn't for my daughter, she still lives with us & she has a new boyfriend 6 months now & he doesn't have Parents they pasted..... So I asked if they wanted to go to dinner somewhere & my daughter wanted to cook, so we cooked dinner together which was very nice but also sad cause Sean loved Thanksgiving food... lol Now here come's Christmas & I am not in anyway wanting to get out all my Christmas decorations & decorate but here I go again.....( My daughter) I talked with her & told her how I felt & she said we didn't have to put up a tree but I feel bad for her, Its her first Christmas w/ her boyfriend & he doesn't have parents to go to on Christmas, So I know I will have a Christmas dinner for them but I'M TORN, PLEASE HELP ME WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Missing my son Christopher big time , Thanksgiving is past, and Christmas ahead <3 I've decorated a small table top tree with just his ornaments on it, I think he'd like that, and it reminds me of all the Christmas's we were blessed to share <3 I know I am bless to have his Grandpa here, my husband, and my 16 yr old lil sin inlaw here , it keeps the day's 'moving' though very slowly some days, still I stay 'actively' involved, as much as at time's i want to hide away for a couple days, I do do that for an hour or two sometimes. Planning on spending the weekend before Christmas with my Daughter Brittany who lives in Alabama, hoping our visit with each other will strengthen us, our relationship, and our faith ,and we know he'll be there with us. We had wonderful Christmas's together <3

Hi Carol. You're right, I think our son's did bring us together. My gosh, they almost look like they could've been brothers! Your son is so handsome! They've probably become good friends (much to God's chagrin!) ... and will help us to be able to help each other. I agree there will always be tears ... and agree the "good" tears will become more frequent as we take one day at a time ... together. I hope you're doing alright. I just posted about how the weekend went and without going into detail (you can read the post), I have to say I'm feeling at peace right now. We were so lucky to have these beautiful souls in our lives ... and we'll forever be enriched because of them. Love to you, Carol ... Jennifer

Hi Carol, thank you for your post. I'm hanging in there. I've been visiting Cameron's grave site daily as this brings me peace. I feel close to him here. It's still so hard and I keep waiting to hear from him. I keep thinking he'll call me and tell me it's all a bad dream.

Hello carol, Just needed someone to talk to..... Its almost 5 months my son has been gone, this 14th and on the 15th its my son's Birthday, Sean would of been 26..... How I miss him so much, I'm so sad all the time, I want him hm so badly, but I need to keep telling myself he is hm & he's just waiting for us now. This pain is so unbearable at times, I feel like a part of me has died, I'm not the same person I was before, I hate this feeling I have & its consistent everyday all day long I think of Sean..... I know he wouldn't want me to be feeling this horrendous pain all the time but I just cant help it, I have a broken heart. Thanks for listening, I hope your days are a little better. take care friend, Ronda

Hi Carol. I'm glad to hear your birthday was okay and not bad. Didn't do anything for Halloween and no one came to the door. Halloween was 2nd only to Christmas for Zach (and his birthday on Christmas Eve). It's all still overwhelming. I'm grateful for this site and for meeting you. I believe our sons guided us here ... at least I hope so. I also believe that your heart knows better than anyone ... and you should go with it ... June 30th, not July 1st. It's the only important thing ... what YOU know.

Talk to you soon. Take care of yourself and keep in touch. I haven't been on for the last couple of days ... been out of sorts more than usual ... this one year mark is becoming more difficult than I imagined. But, I will go on.

God bless us all ... we need it!

Right back at you. It is amazing that I can feel so close to people I've never met - the bond we share is one that only we can understand.

Carol, I too find myself filled with anger at the people who knew my son was struggling, trying to fight the alcohol and drugs, yet always showed up with beer and drugs ... including his younger brother ... who I have no respect for nor want anything to do with. Even after losing his brother and sister he said to a lady ... "why should I have to change my lifestyle just because I lost some people" !!! Word for word that is exactly what he said ... some people!

You are right ... there is no earthly justice but I believe there will be justice and hopefully we'll be there to see it!

I hope you had a decent birthday ... I never say happy birthday anymore because there is no way it can be. It can be nice though ... at least we had those memories of past birthdays with our sons and had those calls and cards.

I guess that's the key - day to day.

My hardest times are later in the afternoon on my way home from work. And sometimes, when I've been dreaming about Tyler, waking up and having to remind myself that he is gone. I know he doesn't want me to suffer the way I am, but I can't help it. I pray to God all the time, sometimes I feel His comfort, many times I do not.

I miss hearing my son's voice, seeing his face, getting his hugs, phone calls, everything.

Hi carol, thank you for your comment on my son Cameron. He was my youngest child and looked the most like me. I lost him in May so it's been 2months longer for me and I just now feel like I'm coming out of the fog. Sonya posted a beautiful poem yesterday. Did you get a chance to read it? How are you doing? It sounds like your son gave you a lot of love, just like my son did. I really miss that.

I lost my 24 year old son, my only child, in January of this year. The only thing that helps is knowing I share my suffering with all the mothers on this site. He was my reason for living. My heart, my soul. I want him back more than anything in the world. I had hoped it would get slightly better with time, but the only thing that has improved is that the fog of the first four months has lifted. The pain has not diminished.
