Online Funerals

Q. My husband is hospitalized and won’t be able to attend his father’s funeral. His sister has suggested broadcasting the services on the Internet, which would allow him to watch the funeral on a laptop. Is this possible?

 

It is indeed possible to “attend” a funeral or memorial service on the Web today. Many funeral homes offer the service. The audience can be limited to relatives and friends for privacy—or include the general public. For…

The feeling of Bitterness

Sometimes I find myself feeling bitter, bitter because "why me?" "why my son", what did I do wrong? what could I have done differently? when will the hurting stop? bitter because things go well for others.

I don't like what I feel and I ask God to help me thru this. I just have to take it day by day, it's not easy.

I find comfort reading and knowing that others are going threw some of the same feelings,

Some of the comments people make are hurtful.

Tim's Song

Tim wrote this song a little more than a year before he passed.  He knew his friends were heavy into heroin, and I'm guessing this was meant for them. 

 

Failed







All this time we didn’t know what you were doing



You had a Good life gone the day you left us



Good night close those eyes forever



Close those eyes forever



Never to wake up!







Now you’re gone it’s not the same



We don’t know who is to…

Experiencing Grief after Loss

 

“Although the experience of grief in some form or another is universal, our reactions within the overall process vary widely. Newer research and my own experience tell me that, really, there are not stages of grief but an array of feelings that arise,” says Dr. Phil in his new book Real Life: Preparing for the 7 Most Challenging Days of Your Life. These emotions don't pop up in a specific order, and it’s rare that one set ends…

Larry, October 25, 2009

We spent an awesome weekend in North Georgia visiting pumpkin farms, hiking the falls, visited a kangeroo ranch, went through a craft fair, cruised through an antique car show, shopped the outlets (that was his thing -really!) and we ate some yummy food!

This was taken at the Dream House. We were planning to purchase our "forever home" within the next couple of years & were looking for ideas.

Happy Birthday Mom

Today would have been my mom's 94th birthday.  My heart aches because I miss her so much.  She passed away two months ago on January 8.  I think of all her past birthdays, and how she just loved being with her family.  She was happy with just cake and ice cream.  We didn't have to have a big celebration, just being together was enough.  She was the heart of our family.  I cry to her every day just like I am again a child.  I will always be her child, and she will always be in my memory as a  … Continue

One day at a time

Every morning when I wake up I ask the Lord to just help me make it through the day. Some days are better than others. What helps is when I read what others have to say and know I'm not the only one suffering out there. I just can't quite qrip the fact that both my parents are gone and they're never coming back. Snap at friends who tell me- you're doing great, it'll get better, stay strong for everyone else. When my dad died 2 yrs ago, I felt I had to be strong for my mom and my kids and… Continue

death is like a wound,

it just keep piecing your wound deeper and deeper

hoping for it to stop,

but it never will,

but sometimes only time can heal,

then that wound becomes a scar

sure you won't feel the hurting much more,

but from time to time you hurt thinking back to them

thinking on how much you miss them

trying to fight back that tear,

but you never can because to me a tear is just like a tear from your deceased loves ones trying to… Continue

Why we call it comfort food

Upon hearing difficult news, we instinctively want to comfort. It’s a logical response since the word comfort means a relief from sorrow and pain. Our family experience and cultural heritage shape the ways in which we comfort. Often the women in our families, our mothers, grandmothers, and aunts, used some form of food for consolation.

 

It seems only natural that when we look to extend comfort, we most often think in terms of food. And the foods we choose…

How do you start to heal?

My 19-year old nephew shot himself last week. He and I were always very close, and he came to visit me the Saturday before he died.

 

I feel so lost. Of course I'm worried about his mom and am trying to comfort her. It just feels like I have no where to turn for comfort. I don't know that comfort exists. I keep wanting time to go back.

 

It didn't seem real at first. Then I started reading all the tributes from his friends on facebook. How could they be talking…

Prepaying a Funeral

Q. Why do some people prepay funerals—and how is it done?

  

There can be advantages to prepaying a funeral—your own or the funeral of a loved one, such as an elderly parent. For example, my siblings and I prepaid our mother’s funeral a few years ago, after her nursing home notified us that her condition (dementia, along with severe heart disease) had suddenly deteriorated. She would die soon. At my suggestion, we decided to use the time we…
