My name is Janie. I've been looking for a place to share my pain and happiness with people who understand the loss of a child. My sons name was Richard, I called him Rich. He was 32 yr. old.
He died Jan. 9, 2008, I thank the Lord everyday because He let me be at Richard's bedside at the
hospice that early morning, He died at 12:11 AM. I hope thru this site some peacefullness can
come with the sharing of our losses. Also on October 25, 2008, my sister's youngest son, 43 died.
My oldest son, found him. Then November 18, 2008, we lost our mother. She was 93. The worst pain that I can't express is losing Richard.

Dearest Janie;
First i would like say thank you for encouraging me on my journey, this journey that we are on is one that no parents wants to travel, and i am very sorry for your lose, no one would ever choose to be here. Jared and I both loved the Lord Our God, and the peace that comes when i seek Him is more then enough not that the emotions don't come like now! I thank you and others from the bottom of my heart for the hugs and the sharing. I miss my Jared so much sometimes i sleep with his clothes just to have him near, i have not slept in my own room. I have been here now for 6 months some have just gotten here. Janie, again thank you and it is hard to read all of the lose sometimes but i suppose if it were not God's will for our lives we would not be here! i don't know if this makes sense to you or not, and sometimes i feel like i am rambling. Janie i can't hug you enough for you are strong and i can't imagine losing my mom and my son. God Bless you and thank you once again, God always knows what we need and when we need.

Love daphne

Janie know that you are not alone. I used to think I was the only one in the world that had a mother past . I felt so alone confused angry hurt and lost When my mom first past I thought I was the only one facing such tragic but I relized from this website i was not. You have endured 3 wonderful people in your life leaving you. it has to be hard to try to heal when it s coming again You are strong person to still be fighting for life Take it one day at a time you must continue that cuz eac day is another challenge this part of life is a process that we wont know when it will get better

Dear Janie, i do hope this gets to you. Yes of course i'd love to share and listen. I have expressed much here. Seems im going through many stages in my grief steps. I dont care much for technical labels on our losses.... I am very sorry for your loss of your son and mom, and nephew! We can talk about our true feelings here, many others do the same, or in reading their posts, we can relate. I sure am comforted in knowing im not the only one that has felt as if i was going crazy. My mom passed on 3-30-09 at home on hospice and we are still in the angry stage because of a "mistake" that was typed into a computer regarding her care... how are you? I have to tell you also, i don't know your grief, in losing your dear son, possibly we may find similiar feelings along the way. I know this doesnt come close, but i came very close to losing my daughter 27 yrs ago. Thankfully she is still here. Please feel totally free to write any time if you wish.
