My Daughter, Candace Rae Watson. Just turned 30 years old. (put 39 accidentally!)THIRTY YEARS OLD

Candace turned 30 years old on February 11, 2010. Her and her husband were having a b-b-q- w/friends and enjoying some beers. They got into an arguement so he took their 3 little girls and left. When he didn't come back for a while she took some of his pills the dr had given him for his shoulder. When he came back the next morning she was sitting in front of the tv with the game control in her hands. she was gone. Neither the beer nor the pills would've killed her alone, together it was FATAL!! This happened on April 9th, 2010. PLEASE PRAY FOR HER SOUL THAT JESUS AND GOD TAKE HER,PLEASE! I'm begging you, please!

Cathy, Amelia, Jennifer and Sonya: Thanks for your comments. I lived for Candace. I hear her voice in my head. I just don't know.

You are not bad luck.
You don't know for sure about the pills, if she wanted them bad enough she could of found another way to get something.
Its not your fault.
You are not bad luck.
I know its hard.
This is heart wrenching.
Its like you are walking around , or floating around.
As if you are in a nightmare, and this is not real.
That is how I feel.
Wish I had the answers to why things like this happen, but I don't
Just know you are not alone we are here for you.
Email me if you need too ok.

Hello Melinda. I am so sorry for your pain. I truly believe that our children (mine was about to turn 30 on Christmas Eve when he died of an overdose) are with God and are healed, or at the very least, learning to heal with help from all the family and friends who have gone before. It's who they were in their soul, not the affliction that made them ill, that God knows and loves. I hope you, and all of us here, find solace in knowing how lucky we are to have been blessed with the task of being the parent to our very beautiful, special children. What a miracle it is being a parent. What a dreary existence it would have been if we hadn't experienced the ultimate joy which that precious soul gave us. They enriched our lives in countless ways and showed us a love we otherwise could never have remotely comprehended.

Yes, we all hurt. Many, if not most, of us would prefer to join them ... can't bear the thought of not seeing them, touching them, holding them or hearing them call us mom or dad ... anything. Yet, we're here and we have each other. I have days when I pray to God to let me go be with him. But, God knows better. If we leave, the ripple of grief grows and we put that ugly burden onto those we leave behind. I have to keep reminding myself this because my father committed suicide years ago and my family was never the same. Now my worst nightmare ever conceived has come true ... how do I deal with this?

Our children want us to go on ... to do the best we can ... to make meaning out of their lives in some fashion. That's what we need to focus on. Our grief will NEVER go away. I am certain of that. But, we can make their lives full of purpose and carry on in their stead.

God Bless us All.

Melinda when my son passed 14 months ago I asked myself the same question and after reading lots of books and go to different churches to find my answer because i was not satisfied with just my church I can tell you that she is in heaven.This is a mothers worst nightmare and it will take us a very long time to heal,I am still having a hard time excepting it that my son is really gone.You hang in there and we all here for you take care.

Thanks Cathy and for clarifying that about the pix. I'm so sorry for your loss. I tell myself, time is the only healer. I just can't wait to be with her and my Granma. My Granma died in '75 and it still hurts, not even like the first few years though. I pray Jesus gives u strength to endure. We have to go on.

Melinda, I will pray for her soul. I am sure she is with her grandma...I have no doubts. Haha on the gotee....:-) this was my wonderful son Jacob just one day before he died.

Thanks for acknowledging my continuous grief. I know she's in a better place w/o all these earthly temptations. She was just a kid. Albiet, a just turned 30 kid, but still a child none the less. Could u pray for her soul, that she goes w/my Granma? I would really,really appreciate it. By the way Cathy, why do u have a gotee? lol

So sorry for your loss. I am sure that she is in heaven looking over you and her 3 beautiful daughters.
