Yes Melinda it would be to your benefit and to many others benefit as well for you to contact Dr.Phil. It will be a new experience for you and all of us here on this site. You would be helping so many people. Because you have so much love, passion and are so caring about the life of your grand daughters. I feel that they will contact you and consider your letter as a show. You will be acknowledged and admired for all the courage that you have. If you go on Dr.Phil's computer site you can probably see where they ask if anyone has anything to contribute and has story for one of their future shows. I haven't been on Dr.Phil's site in awhile but look and check it out. As my father's mother Angelina Gondola once said to me "I wish-a-you-luck!"
Those were the only words in English I ever heard my Sicilian grandmother say.
Melinda, Thank you for the compliments. My mom took the picture of Jaime when he caught his first fish, I beleive it was at Amistad Dam in South Texas, I did not travel with them because i was working. Can you post pics of your granddaughters?
Melinda, I enjoy reading all your posts everyday. You say what we all think. We think about our children everyday, that time that I dont think about Jaime, I feel guilty. Im sure Candace was a beautiful young mother and Im sure she loved you (her mother) very much. Jaime died after battling leukemia for 14 months. Almost everyday I flashback to the hospital visits and the treatments and the nausea and the infections and I cry. I dont know why God chose our children, but he did. I am like you and I believe in the afterlife and I know you will see candace after you see God in the clouds in the air, or maybe you will see candace first and she will lead you (like an angel) to Him. I dont know but I hope we see our children first and they lead us to him in the clouds. Keep reading the scriptures, I know you do becuase of what you post. My heartfelt blessings go out to you and your granddaughters and I know they will look up to you for support when they think about their mom. Jaime did not have a girlfriend or children and how I wish he had, but I have mixed emotions. Take care.

Melinda I purchased Guideposts magazines for many years. That's when I was a magazine junkie. LOL I also purchased a box of birthday cards. On the back of each card it had a nice little story. And a quote inside of the card. They were nice to send.
It's funny but we seem to have a lot of the same things in common.
Take good care of yourself. Live each day as best as you can Melinda. It's not always easy but God wants us to do that while we are on planet earth!
Dear Melinda Quinn, I am so sorry about your lost (daughter Candace). When death claim one of our love ones it hit right into our heart, and we wonder "WHY". But the answer is found right within God's word, and there He gives us comfort while he help us to endure this tragic lost. Having faith in our Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ is the greatest comfort there is. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) When we read God's word, and get an accurate understanding of what it says, we will be assured of seeing and being with our love ones again right here on earth very soon. (Acts 24:15)
Hi Melinda.... I read some of your posts on the chat discussion this evening. I can't tell you how my heart aches for you! Anyway I want to ask you to please look into the Bible and let it comfort you. You may wonder how? Why is there suffering? What happens at death? Is there a real hope for our dead loved ones? If you would be interested in learning more please let me know.
