dearest elaine there are no words of comfort but my heart feels your pain my son was a paramedic was killed in a motorcycle accident. Week before he left me he called and said mom i just delivered a baby was so thrilled, i ran away from here cause i couldent deal with seeing his paramedic truck well i found out you cant run and hide, oh it hurts when i see his truck but i feel they have a silent partner with them. Elaine its been 4 years and its gotten harder but what is helpful is reading the great loss all of us have.Take care elaine iam so sorry nan
Hi Elaine. My name is Thomasine. While I haven't lost a child, I have loss my father, my brother, my mother-in-law, who was my dear friend. I really miss them. Some days when I think of them, I can laugh at something we might have said or enjoyed together. Other days, it's all I can do to keep tears of sadness away because I miss them so much. I read somewhere that time takes away the pain. I beg to differ. Time can teach us to cope and sometimes that's the best we can do. However, I wanted this correspondence to be upbeat, so I'll say good bye for now. But know that I will keep you [all of you] in my prayers and pray that God grant you comfort and peace.
Our stories are very similiar. I lost an infant in 1976-she only lived 4 hours. I lost my 30 years old in 2008 and it was much harder to deal with because we built a relationship in the 30 years and were so much alike. It hurts a million times more for me. I miss her every minute of everyday. It is bad enough we had to experience it the first time but to lose two children is beyond limits we should have to endure. If you ever need to chat, let me know..Connie C.
Elaine, my husband died from aml Leukemia. I miss him very much. I still pray each and evry day for God to give me strength and to have peace of mind just to make it through the day. Talking to God works I know it done.
Oh, my mother died a week before my husband did
she was fight Cancer also. Don't stop talking to God.
This is strange but we have so much in common. I was reading one of your blogs to Kristie and realized you were reading my mind and my feelings. I lost my Chris at 25 to a long battle with leukemia. He was taken on 12-5-09 a day I will never forget. I relive that day so much some of it is just a blurr and other parts of it is so real I relive it everyday. Just wanted to let you know that. Don't know why just wanted to let you know you are not alone. I know you have God in your life and so do I. I know he is carring me right now because I can't walk without him. Pray for me and I'll pray for you.

Hi Elaine I want to Thank you for responding to all of us you are a wonderful person with a big heart I am so glad that when i need someone to talk to you are there. God Bless you I am here for you too my friend.
HI Elaine thank you for your response today I really needed it! I am having one of my missing my son moments.Everyone keeps telling to see a go see my doctor for more medication,there is not enough medication to heal our heartaches.I even went to see a counselor and like i said to my husband i get more relief from others that have gone and are still going through this then seeing a counselor. I am so glad to have all of you as my friends thank you and God Bless all of you!!
It is so good to witness you being a blessing to others as God continue to keep you as only He can,and that is in perfect peace.
We the parents whose children have gone on ahead of us,never get over it but we do get through it. Then God can use us as wounded healers. Our hearts,our person,our lives have been wounded and the wound at times feel raw. God heals us through various stages of his agape love. No two wounds are the same though they appear the same each is different.It is then that God can use us to lead other wounded soldiers to our healer,our Lord and Savior Jeseu Christ. Keep lifting up the name of the Lord and He through you will keep lifting up bow down heads. Remember only what you do for Christ will last. Much Love,
Hi Elaine: I am sorry for you lost of your son. I also lost my son two month ago and no words can take the pain that we are left with, I also find my self crying like otilia was speaking about.He was my first born,I miss him so much!
Hi Elaine: I want to thank you for your story about your son. I feel your pain. It has been two years and 8 months since I lost my son, but the pain never goes away. I find myself crying when I look at his picture when I do things that him and I used to do together. I hear his favorite songs and the tears just start coming. I trying to keep myself occupied so that I can make it one more day, it is not easy to do.I know that there are many mother's out there who have lost children, but one thing I have engraved in my mind is this little which gives me strength to keep going until it is my time, "I'LL NEVER LET YOU PART, FOR YOUR ALAWYS IN MY HEART". Take care and it is good to hear from caring people.
