Hi Ruby,the years do fly by as I know they are sometimes hard to go through as it has been four years for me the tears still fall as if it were yesterday,I know the love you & Laurie shared keeps you grounded but the heart stills longs for the touch and that's the painful thing at times,for the first three years time had stopped I could not remember anything I was stuck in 2006 when Kisha complained of a headache and less than 30 minutes she had collasped never to awake again on this side but she did awake on the other side in the bosom of the Lord as Laurie is as they were only loaned to us for a time and we now know that time is very short because they didn't stay long but what a impression they made while they were here,Kisha loved life and lived it with a smile on her face as she wrote poems of the love and how much she loved all of us,so Ruby this is a great day as we continue on we love on as I hope to share the love that my child had to others as I pray that our love brightens your day as Laurie would have it for you ,may you & your family be blessed each day you live and the love of God bless your soul as you look up .
Hi Ruby,I have not spoken with you for a while I would love to know how you're doing,as I know this can be a tough road to travel so jot me a line and I pray I can lift your spirit and bring a sigh of joy into your day for God has not left you and the days may seem gloomy at times but the narrow road we travel has a lot of gloomy faces so don;t be in despair for your day has many joys if you'll take the key and open the door.Many Blessings to you & your family!Amen
Rev James Duran, you and Kisha will forever be in my Heart.....My daughter really, really, really, loved me too. her last words to me were " Mom hold my hand" right before Dr V, gave her that fatal injection of Ativan....thoes words are forever be in my heart and in my mind....I have recovered somewhat from the horrific loss, only because I know that she would want me to be Happy...Knowing that each precious day on this earth brings me one day closer to seeing Jesus Christ , her and my mom and dad ...My Hope is in Jesus...Something tells me your Hope is too...Love and Blessings....Ruby Stone Ellard
Hi Ruby,yes I lost my daughter KIsha in 2006 she was 23 yrs.old and the love of my life we were very close as the last words she said to me were daddy I love you and I said I know Kisha and she said but daddy I really really love you and I said I know you do Kiisha and she said but no daddy I really,really, really love you.those word resonate through my spirit every day and I think of them at least once a day.Taht alone keeps my heart at peace.Be Blessed Ruby!!!
Hi Ruby, My son's Grandmother's name is Ruby. She raised Jon from the time he was 7 1/2. She did what I knew I would be unable to do being newly divorced at the time and having to enter the work force. He never could have handled all the moves and instability that my life has been in the past 31yrs. I checked in to the Compassionate Friends but the only groups here that I saw were in Payson on a weeknight which is too far away and one for sibblings. I tried once to enter the chat room but it was too overwhelming trying to answer people and keep typing while I read. I'm glad the poem touched you. I knew it would touch someone here. Blessings,Kathy
Thanks for being so kind Ruby as it has been 4 yrs. for me and that's why I try to share a glimmer of hope to any & all who crosses this path for I preached my daughter's funeral and that was a great experience as I know just how much she loved her daddy,I'll always cherish the Night that she asked me to go to her Senior Prom with her at that time I did not know that I would lose my child and I kow how hard it is for you to have to stand and watch your child be buried,even though I have other kids she was my heart.All of the kids love each other so they loved her dearly too.So my heart goes out too you and I hope you continue to reach out to any you can & let them know that the Road is Rough but when you're traveling with Almighty God its easy when you hit a Bump for he'll cushion your fall.God Bless and may you receivve all that God has for you.
Yes I have,I lost my daughter Kisha who was 23 yrs old, a blood vessel burst in her head and killed her,she lay brain dead for 3 days and it was the hardest thing to turn the machine off,but because my trust was in the Lord we let her go.3 days before she had told me how much she loved me and that rides with me day by day.So whatever the case if you really trust God and don't allow the anger and hard feelings get the best of you the days will get better.
I am sorry for your loss also. Yes I think that the doctors that worked with Lee, diagnosed him right the first time, but the 2nd Dr. let him go and said he did not have bi-polar. That was a mistake. I am in touch with people that may be able to help. It's sad to think that he could of been helped by these doctors and were not. Thank you for your love and concern. Again I am sorry for your loss. Love always Kim
I just came home from my support group, Have you heard of Angles across the usa, its another one I want to say a branch off compansionate friends, anyway they have a web site angles across the usa 2010 tour, I sponsored my son so his picture is there also, but Denise Howard is the one who contacted me and sent me into the right direction, without compansonate friends and everything else, I would still be in my bed crying. I joined a new club and I hate it. My son was my drive he was best friend and now he still is in my heart but as you know it hurts, and I feel bad for Pat, just need to find her..Sorry my spelling is bad, I am so used to spell check... I have given everything to god, I put myself in his hands, this is a big step for me, he has been there for me, but now he really has me...

How have you been ? I hope your Aunt is better. Great story about the misletoe and you asking her to accompany you. I am still trying to pick up these signals but, I am happy that you had one. I never made it to the meeting but, I would like to check out the newsletter and I still plan to go next month. I have also been looking in what to involved in that will help others. Just checking on you, Roberto.
It's late so i can only share my most recent story. On snow day, which was a day or two before Valentines Day, I got up at 7:30 and went for a 2 hr. walk in my neighborhood, I ask Laurie to go with me, as I always do with each snow that we have. I began taking pictures with my cell phone, while the snow hit me in the face. I thought i was in Heaven. After about an hour into our walk suddenly a large branch of Mistletoe fell in front of me.....A Kiss From Laurie!!!! iI set it on top of the edge of a bridge a was about to cross, and took a picture of it. It is now sitting in a beautiful frame in my den. I also shared it with my compassionate Friends on Monday. These communications happen...you just have to be open to them... there are many more stories I can share at a later time . I hope your meeting went well..I will be glad to send you one our " News Letters" for last month if I had an address. They have a lot of self-help in them. my aunt is improving..they have been letting her breath on her own for a few hours at a time... Thank you Jesus!!! Until next story...I wish you Quiet nights,and Peaceful days..".My Hope is in the Lord."....... Ruby Ellard.
