Dear Marilyn

I just happen to live in Fairbanks, Alaska as well. I read your blog and how your family keeps telling you that you are punishing yourself by crying over the loss of your son.I think grief is a very personal thing, you carried that child 9 months and lived in anticipation of his impending birth. You had alot of look forward to with him and his death has caused all of those hopes and dreams you had for him to vanish and to crash down, how tragic. Do you go to church? If you do,i would like to suggest that you go to your pastor and get some counsel from him.Even if you dont belong to a church,i would encourage you to just call or drop into a Baptist Church or non- denominational church and speak with a pastor, you may be more comfortable doing it on the phone, if you arent involved in a church.You are a mother, you and i both have that in common and your poor heart must be broken.How did your son pass, was he sick, in a accident or what?I pray that you ask God to help you to release your sons spirit into Gods hands and replace all of that horrible pain you have inside of you with Gods peace.You are in my prayers. Joyce
