It’s evening here in Hawaii as I write this and I can see the lights of the main part of Waikiki from my balcony and hear the surf pounding the shore below me. This is my last night before I head back home to Chicago on a red eye. After several months of change, the trip came at the perfect time, giving me a chance to replenish my soul before I settle into my “new” life. But I didn’t realize that my trip would bring anything special beyond giving me some much-needed…Continue

Christmas, a time of Yule and Noel, a brief moment in childhood believing in a man delivering presents while you’re nestled in your bed; where in retrospect seems like a long history of memories. As a parent, it was for me to make my son, and later his sisters as well, happy and keep alive an age-old myth. It is a time of wondering what Who-pudding consists of, or how to…Continue

Every Christmas, multitudes of parents flock to the malls to stand in line waiting to have their children photographed with Santa. There was no difference with my family when it came to Timmy. I had graduated from the Police Academy in June, 1998 when Timmy was just shy of his third birthday. Since Timmy was born friends had told his mother…Continue

Q. The father of an acquaintance of mine just died at 98 years of age, and I’m uneasy about what to write in a condolence note. Nobody lives forever. The man had dementia for years. Is there something I can say besides “I’m sorry” in this situation?
People are living much longer these days, and obituary pages are filled with notices for people who died in their nineties or even beyond. I just saw a notice for someone who died at 104. In this case, you…Continue
Two weeks ago, I moved halfway across the country, leaving Albuquerque, New Mexico, where I have lived since 1994, and returning to my hometown in the Chicago suburbs.
I have spent almost my entire adult life in Albuquerque, having come here when I was twenty-two. It was eighteen months after my sister’s death and almost a year after my maternal grandmother died. I can’t completely tell you that I understand my reasons for landing in New Mexico other than I was drawn to the…Continue

One of the questions I’m most frequently asked is, “How do I write a sympathy note?” Most of us know how to write a note; after all we’ve been writing thank you notes for many years. But addressing the topic of death is challenging; what can we possibly say to make someone feel better after losing a loved one?
Loss is painful and when someone is hurting, it’s…
Well, hello again Amy. I just want to say that we, gram, gram, me and missy attended a baby shower for your bro Mike and Angel. My sisters didnt make it, but will get a gift when he is born. Diane, had car problems and didnt make it.
Of course they are having a boy to add to her 3 other kids. He is so happy finally. I still cant get it in my head why you are not here to go to these events and I still cant do holidays like we used to. I avoid them if I can. Nadia had a 3rd birthday,…Continue

On November 18th, it will be five long months since I lost my Mom. The guilt and regrets are still there; however, I can tell you that it is not as bad. I live in another state from my Mom and getting back after she died was not an easy task. But I managed to go a few weeks back, and it really did me good. I was able to go the cemetery and have a good talk with her, and my Dad. I felt as though she could hear me and understand; and somehow made me feel better. I did the same things we did…Continue
The sunlight seemed brighter as I walked out of the Emergency Room. The nurse walked beside me, partly holding me up, partly holding me back from doing anything stupid. I pulled out my cell phone and called home. I knew Gi would be possibly still at the hair salon with the girls – Alaina was graduating Pre-K the next day and we wanted her to have her hair cut and styled. I crossed the parking lot and sat on the curb. It was the first time noticing Tim’s blood on my hands, my clothes,…Continue

My mom was an artist, but never called herself that. She worked in mixed media and hand decorated eggs with beads. The quality of her work was unmatched. She did this as a hobby while living in central Fla. She also gardened and raised orchids,raised animals, knitted and watched movies.
I awoke this morning feeling rather beat, sick, but happy to celebrate, at least...the day of my sons birth...for I knew I would be celebrating the second birth day of my son (who would now be 27 years young)....without him...Rather...we would "celebrate"... trying to be in good spirits for the little ones, celebrating his much too short life on this earth...of all places...at the cemetary...where we had to bury my son Conrad, TO BE NO MORE...on January 14, 2010...I had to bury my son…Continue

These days that have run together and formed a jagged rip into what I thought was sanity that are running mercilessly together... The hours glaring hard into my being as they pass me by, knowing that I am growing weaker and loosing sight of any glimmer of what I used to think was hope. My soul, my inner self, the place I never knew I could experience such emotion, has been plunged into a place, if you can call it that, that I never knew existed. A place that, honestly, no human being should…Continue
He was my twin brother and my only sibling. I had no idea that he would take his own life. He did leave a note and his estranged wife, who he was recently separated from, said the police said they would give it back in 4-6 months. Does that sound right and is there any way I can get a copy of the note? My heart is breaking and I'd just like to maybe get some closure and find out what my brother was thinking those last few moments of his life.
