As Memorial Day nears, we're remembering men and women who served in the armed forces. We also remember the families left to grieve.
Honor the memory of a loved one who served. Share a photo of your beloved veteran…

I had not yet come to terms with the loss of my baby girl, and I am hit with the death of my mother. I am barely managing to keep my head above water, and I feel as though I am drowning. I know Mom is not suffering anymore,and I know she is with Pop, but damn it, now I am alone. I feel like they both abandoned me. And right now with the loss of my daughter I really need them. What in the hell am I supposed to do with out them? Lord, - I pray for strength just to get through the…Continue

Because I want nothing more than to wake up to my sons beautiful face and to able to kiss him good night. WHY WHY WHY.. I don't…Continue
I often ask myself - what is wrong with being "truly spiritual." I hear so often how everyone is a "Christian" but when you truly start demonstrating the knowledge and courage to speak those things that Jesus Christ spoke - it is often ensue with a negative reaction. I have deep emotions and compassion for everyone that experience some kind of pain or suffering and I also respect and acknowledge we all respond differently.
It is so refreshing to be able to have a truly spiritual…Continue

As we know, the time to appreciate life or someone's life should not be at death. While we are alive we need to celebrate "our life" which means to be thankful that we are here and to love all those around us who will one day pass away to death. Let's love them now and tell them all of the loving thoughts we have of them (1 John 4:8).
Truly celebrating life is to treasure it now...for the dead is conscious of "nothing." So while we are here and in the now - love as you never loved…Continue

Death is not the original purpose for mankind. God's purpose was to have mankind to live under perfect conditions in Paradise. The pain and suffering we experience with the lost of our love one does not originate with God's plan in the beginning.
However, due to mankind disobedience we now sin, grow old and die. These conditions will also change - as there will be a resurrection of all those in the memorial tomb (John 5:28, 29). We all have the opportunity to gain knowledge and…Continue

Death to some is the finality of one's life. However, the Bible holds firm a hope of restoring earth and mankind back to God's original purpose. The Dead, are not suffering but is as in a deep-sleep. (Eccl. 9:5). No harm comes to the dead. We do have fond memories of our love ones. The memories are with us to cherish.
That is why it is so important to let the "living" know how you feel about them - do not let death come upon them - and then you remember all of the…Continue

I feel angry!! I'm angry he's gone..angry at people who say, "You need to get up and out of bed, go somewhere." "Why sit there and add to your pain." WHAT??? I don't get it that THEY don't get it~if that makes sense.
How CAN I act normal..go shopping, for a walk, to a movie, out to eat.. or anything else at this point. It's been less than two weeks!!! "Nothing" and I mean nothing is normal for me. I want my son, and that's ALL I want. I do lay in bed, yes, I do…Continue
I go to visit my husband's grave site often. It has been 17 months and his family members are expressing concern as to why I haven't put a stone on him. I don't know if I am ready to visit and see his name on it. That just seems that it will make it even more final. Am I being selfish ? I know his mom is hurting to. I just don't know what to do. If I decide to do it what is the process ?

I’ve been noticing more pets being mentioned among the survivors in recent obituaries and have also become aware that some papers (most of them in small towns) are running pet obituaries among their paid obituary notices. In their how-to templates they offer guidelines for what to include in an obituary for an animal friend: cause of death, favorite memories, where to send condolences, who to list among survivors (including blood relatives).
There are also many…Continue

This is my first blog ever. let me start out by telling you a little bit about me. My name is Maggie (Mags) My writing stinks so please don't hold that against me. I am a single mom of 2 amazing boys Brayden 10 and Rylan 4. 15 days ago my life was ripped from me. And I still can't seem to understand why. I lost half of my heart, my soul. my son Rylan who is only 4 was not feeling good over the weekend. Never thought a cough could lead to this. all weekend he just lounged around but was still…Continue
I checked out a blog here that offers counseling and books for sale to help us all deal with our loss and stress, I guess. One post said something to the fact that some people will always cling to their grief, while others are willing to "do the work" to move on. Ok, there is a part of me that can see the trace of a valid point there. We all must decide to whether we want to keep on living, or continue existing. It took me 5 years to reach the conclusion that I could still continue to live…Continue

Chad left that morning..after giving me my early Mothers' Day presents. He said, "I'm going for a walk, and I'll be back in ten minutes...kissed my cheek, said I love you." After that we counted the hours..went outside, we yelled, we cried, and a part of me (I guess as a Mom) knew my baby wasn't coming home.
Two and a half days later, they found my baby in the water face down. He had a gash above his right eye, and was caught under some brush, or he would have been washed…Continue
Working with so many people who are grieving, I have come to a conclusion. There are people willing to do the work that it takes to adjust to a life without their loved one and there are people who aren’t. There are people who will remain bitter and angry always. There are people who will cling to the pain of grief and those who will forever identify themselves as “bereaved.” Queen Victoria did. Following the death of her beloved husband, Prince Albert, she wore black every day for…Continue
I felt compelled to come here today, not realizing that I had been here as recently as a few weeks ago. I feel much the same way today as I did then. I miss him and my heart aches. I hate not having him here to cheer me on, provide advice, feel the warmth of his touch & smile, .... My house has gone from being full with 6 full time occupants to 2 and it's rough. My stepson has called me on all important days like his father's birthday, Easter, & Mother's Day, which felt so good! He…Continue

Every day i just think about my brother and why this happened. Life just seems to be so cruel. I cant take time off work and i…Continue
