Elvis..oh yes..we just took a trip to Graceland, and I am an Elvis nut!  It's so good to have the memories isn't it?

Great to hear from you again.  You hang in there too okay?  We have to do it for them, and the ones left. I trying!

You are right about the people at Church..they all did look at me rather strangely, which made me uncomfortable, but I dealt with it as best I could. 

They offer their words of kindness..they try..but it still doesn't help me one bit!  Nothing helps me right now.  Except smelling his shirt still...and holding our picture.  GOD..why?  Some say don't ever ask why, but how can we help it?

Love to you,

Oh my many small children, and yes,  that has to be so much harder for all of you to handle.

Did you find a quilt yet?  I am also looking at them. 

 I have wondered why I didn't see you on here for a couple of days, but I guess it may have been we were on at different times.  I AM thinking of you. 


We managed to get up and go to Church this morning.  I mustered up the energy..don't know how, but I did it.  It also helps that my husband is a Minister. 

Of course, there were more tears, and I left with mascara running down my face and feeling worn out again.  Chad would have said the mascara looked like "gravy"  under my eyes.  That was just his sense of humor. :)


Please, lets keep stay in touch.   Really feel a connection with you.

I just read your post about your dear brother.  I'm so sorry for your loss.  I know how it hurts, and I know we are all hurting here.  You are one heck of a sister..I DO know that, and I am here for you. 

Liz, he had children right?  That makes it even sadder.  Again, I'm sorry.  God be with us all.

Your friend,

~PHYLLIS..Chads' Mom~

Hi Liz, I just saw your post about your brother in the Good Memories thread.  I'm so sorry for your loss.  I lost my son a year ago to a suicide.  It's going to be hard for a while.  You sound like you have always been a strong, independent person, from your comment about not thinking you would ever need a support group.  But losing a loved one really knocks you off your feet, and it is okay to need extra supports during tragic life events.  Thank you for sharing about your special times with your big brother... you brought a smile to my face reading about the sweet things you did together.  I hope you will find comfort, strength, and encouragement here to help you during your time of loss and grief.  Take good care.
