I just wanted to say how sorry I am for the loss of you daughter losing a loved one is never easy; I know that from personal experience and I pray that your faith will create inner peace. Until the dark times start to fade draw close to God in prayer, and he will draw close to you.” (James 4:8) I hope, from my heart, that your pain will decrease, and that God will send his blessings to you.
I want to let you know that you did the right thing by joining this group. As hard as it is to cope right now, things will get better. My 30 year old daughter, Melissa, died 19 months ago. I only recently started using the word died. Before that I had to say passed or passed away. I guess it was gentler in my mind and didn't seem so harsh. As time passes, it does get somewhat easier but it will NEVER go away. I still miss her as much as I did the day she died. She was suffering in this life too. She had very bad ulcerative colitis for 8 years before she had a fatal brain aneurysm. Always sick with diarrhea and vomiting too. She taught school to 3rd and 4th graders and would be there everyday that she could but was absent a lot. So we all know what you are going through and are sad you had to join our group...Hugs to you, Connie
Katthleen, I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your daughter. I feel you've earned the right to be considered her Mom. This is a good group. Unfortunately, I've watched it grow in the past 10 months from 46 when I joined to 516 at this post. There are a lot of good folks here that feel your pain and a lot who will hold you in their prayers. Keep coming back. It helps to read and share with people that really understand what it is to lose a child. You'll be in my prayers. Hugs of Hope,Kathy
