Dearest Shannon, You are an Angel on earth and today, the three months anniversary of my beloved son Howard's  passing....the worst time for me...you did save me and I will always be eternally grateful to you for your show of friendship! Speaking with you and listening to your story and your thoughts and reflections on your beloved son Tommy did inspire me and you show a wisdom so profound that you can count me as one that deeply appreciates the gift of your friendship! God Bless You for being there for me! I Love You, Shari

Dear Shannon,  Please don't think of "dropping out" and not writing for awhile.  Your posts are so very helpful to me and I love to see the pictures of your son.  He looks so fun loving and happy.  My son Todd was fun loving and happy too, with so much enthusiasm for life.  We have to try and be here for each other, don't you think?  I plan to read a book about NDE that I found out about on the website.  Can't remember the exact title but it has the word "light" in it.

Love and hugs,

Janet

i would not trade any memories either for the world,  i can only imagine how hard it must be for you driving and looking into ditches.  i have the pictures of my sons car after the accident i try to invision what he went through, although i know some of it, my other son cant stand to even see a car that was like my sons, i guess i am lucky there because i dont know a car from a hole in the wall.  it does make me mad that my son had just bought this car brand new in the cash for clunker promo brought on by obama i believe he probably would have been safer in an old clunker that had the old solid frame. his car crumbled on impact because of these new uniframes.  will it ever get easier???

i used to have my stereo on at all times in the kitchen, for as long as i can remember i have not been a tv person, the tv would be on in one room for the kids and i had my music, the stereo went on every morning with the coffee pot.  i think i have told you i am a recovering alcholic, well since i quit drinking 19 years ago, i have never really danced any where, it was easier drunk, than about 2 months before the wedding i was dancing around the house picking music for jacob to burn for me for our backyard wedding reception. i dont think i truely enjoyed music more than at that time.  well since his death over 6 months ago i can count on two hands how many times i have turned my stereo on,  music was always a part of my life and  now!!  it is like it died with my son,  hang in there, please continue to write i enjoy our chats.

Dear Shannon,

I'm so sorry today is a rough one for you! Please dry your tears and just feel

that your baby is safe and sound! I still wait for your call and would really like to speak with you! Things I can't say in print. I treasure your friendship as

I do all of us broken hearted parents!  You are in my prayers. Please rest assured you will reunite and what a glorious day that will be for you and Tommy! Love, Shari

Dear Shannon, I know today is very hard for you, and I am so sorry you have to go through this horrible time! The three month anniversary of the loss of your beloved son Tommy.

My three month day is this Monday the 28TH.

So you see, Shannon, just three days, yours the 25th, mine the 28th!

No mere words can ease the sad burdon of loss that we both feel for our sons!  Think of me, Shannon, I now have no one left!

 

Shari

Wow!  What a wonderful experience.   A month or so after my son Todd died, my daughter had a dream that she was in a swimming pool, crying.  Then Todd was there and asked her why she was crying and she told him, "because you died".  He smiled and said not to worry, he was okay and that he would see her again when it was her time.  She's only 11 months older than him and this dream made her feel better because it felt so real, not like a dream at all.

Love the photos of Tommy.  Hope you are having a peaceful day.  Hugs, Janet

Shannon, I had to go clean my son's apartment and it was very emotional. I have all my son's stuff in storage and when it warms, I'll go through some of it. I'm not looking forward to it but it must be done. Good luck with  your son's belongings.

Hi Shannon just wanted to see how you are doing. I am as good as can be expected.  my daughter in law is having a real tough time right now and her parents are being jerks!!  they think she should be better now and it has not even been 7 months, I told her today that I wasnt supposed to loose my son and she sure shouldnt have been made a widow before 30 years of age, and left with a 7 year old boy.  It is making her question her faith, and I have to admit I have questioned mine.  I hope god has a very good reason for taking all of our children, I cant believe how fast the number keeps going up and to think this group is a drop in the bucket of parents who have lost their children.  But thank god for it, at least he guided us here to people who can relate

Hi Shannon.  I look forward to your posts.  You lift me up at times when I am down.  Thank you.  For some reason it seems that we are all down these days?  Is it the weather?  The moon? What ever it is, I wish it would go away. This Thursday-24th, will be 6 months since my beautiful son was taken from me.  My heart hurts so bad that sometimes I think I am not going to make it.  I get this horrible pain in the pit of my stomach. I ask God everyday to help us all through this journey that we did not sign up for nor did we plan.

I believe it WAS! My daughter, Candace came to me 2 days after she died, I didn't see her, I felt her rub my arms up and down. Then on Valentines day she touched my shoulder. both times she was standing behind me. I can not wait until I'm w/my just turned 30 yr old Baby. She didn't mean to die! She wanted to raise her 3 little girls. I got some pictures put on a CD and I'll post them. I feel my life is over w/her gone. It's all in God's time so I assume He has something else for me to do. I feel better reading other's posts. I too, think telepathically we'll know  each other on the other side.

Hi, Shannon:  I am so sorry for your loss.  My daughter has been gone just over 4 years.  I wish I could see her again.  When I dream of her, she is always a little girl and she was 44 when she died.  In one dream, she was about 7 and we were at the mall.  She was sitting on a bench and I said, "Come on, Kitty, we have to go home".  She just looked at me and said, "But, Mama, you know I can't go home with you."  It was so real and it is one of the few dreams I remember.  Usually I don't remember any dreams.  If you were dreaming of Tommy or not, it was real.  He was there to comfort you.  I have heard Kitty's voice when I am awake and in the middle of the day so I know that was not a dream.  It always startles me but it also comforts me because I know she is with me.  Thank you for asking me to be your friend.  I have never figured out how to get a picture on my page.  If I ever do, I will post one.
