My son Shot

Two (2) years today. My (20) year old son shot. I am angry. I just don't enjoy this life without my son. I loss my marriage of 25 years the day our son died. I have no joy. My husband feels the same. I have one promise every night. I'll be in pain for the rest of my life.

1. Life, like a mist, appears for just a day,

Then disappears tomorrow.

All that we are can quickly fade away,

Replaced with tears and sorrow.…

Where do I go?

I have been feeling blah. It's mixed emotions and I need a place to talk about it. I'm 30 and I need to talk about the last decade to help me move on through the next.

I met a guy after high school in 2003, married by 2007 divorced by 2011. Since then I have been "paddling my own canoe." When it comes to maintaining my home, expenses and lifestyle. I have both my parents whom I love and get along really well with.I have two sisters, sadly though we don't have a strong bond. At this… Continue

When Grief and Engagement Intersect

In March, just weeks before my mom died, Greg and I began to discuss a future together. I felt as if we were dancing around the topic a bit, probably because I had been married before and a part of me wanted to make sure it would truly be right, but also knowing that life changes and sometimes you have to go forward into the…

Sing out with joy of heart!…

What not to say to a bereaved parent

When a friend gave birth to a stillborn baby her granny told her, “Now you have your own angel.” This comment upset my friend and yet her granny repeated it every time they spoke. My friend shared, “I love my granny but my baby is dead and what she is saying to me is no comfort.”

It is rare to hear that a baby…

Dress Code Changing for Funeral Services

Q. Do I have to wear a dark suit and tie to my uncle’s funeral?  My significant other says I should, but I want to wear a nice collared shirt and khakis. It seems to me everybody’s more casual these days. What’s your opinion?

I just went to a memorial service held in a church and wore a brown…

The Honey To Do List

The Honey To Do List

By joeys guy

Honey here is your to do list

It was written after that first time we kissed

I know you are that special one

Who would follow the list till it’s done

Follow the list in it’s order

Do not change, do not alter

The first thing you will do

Is to ask me to marry you

You will love me as I love you

With the promise of a love that’s true

You will give me children, maybe…

Solo Vacations for Widows

Q. I’m in my 50s and thinking of taking a vacation by myself so I can meet some new people. But I’m also frightened. I’ve never traveled completely alone before, although my late husband and I saw much of the world together. Do you have any suggestions?

I think you’re brave. Many widows share your anxiety. Yet…

In Quiet Time

In Quiet Time

In quiet time before I sleep,

I pray the Lord my soul to keep.

A little prayer I learned as a tot,

And as I’ve grown older have not forgot.

I have a new prayer in mind,

But, the words are hard to find.

I’ll admit, I’ve been remiss, and

Then I remembered back to…

Wow! That's in an Obituary Notice?!

Most people know what basic information to include in a good obituary: birth and death dates, cause of death, education, career, passions and hobbies, personality traits, unusual skills or interests.

But there is so much more to a person’s full life that will make people remember reading about them. Those are the gems that are unpredictable, quirky, astonishing – the things you might have liked talking about to…

Grief Recovery Is Like Mountains and Valleys

Grief and loss over a loved one is not usually a constant low point but a continually oscillation of highs and lows like mountains and valleys.

There will be bad days, but also days where you actually may have interest or feel normal.  Then as quickly as that day goes by, the night may bring a reminder of the loss.

This is natural.  One should not feel hopeless in the valleys.  One should understand it is natural to grieve something or someone so important.  It is perfectly…

Sharing Stories – One at a Time

My grandmother was born in Austria and when I visited there this summer I felt an immediate connection. When I had my first bite of apple strudel, it triggered a flood of memories. The last time I ate apple strudel was when I was a child and my grandma made it. I posted a photo of the apple strudel on Facebook and my cousin asked, “Is…
