This is so true I lost my son Brandan six yrs ago this May and I love hearing the stories of his life and how he touched someone. He was only 16 and we were very close he was my baby child. Brandan was very loving and giving and I very much want to keep alive his memory. Things will never be the same again, and a part of me died too. To know he died tragicly by drowning when someone threw him in the lake and he couldn't swim and was terrified of water it hurts me to know how frightened he must have been.
Very sad story. I am so very sorry for your tragic loss. I also lost my son 6 years ago this May. It was very sudden and unexpected. People don't like to mention his name. Like he never existed for 26 years.
I can so relate. I lost my son a year and two months ago, also totally unexpectedly. I love hearing new stories of him and seeing photo's I've never seen before, because that is all there will ever be of his 25 years on earth now. May we all remember our children with love and pride.
I to lost my son 3 years ago to a massive heart attack. He was only 36. Life is hard without him, but I know one day we will be together again. I hear a lot of stories about him that makes me smile. I see his face in his kids. Some days are very hard without him but I feel his presence when I need a hug from him. It is hard to go on, but I also know that he would not want me to give up on life, but to live it.
I lost my son on Christmas Eve. I found him dead in his duplex. He had been not feeling well. I will never forgive myself for not getting him to a md sooner!!!! He had a dr. Appt the day after Christmas. We decided to wait. When I left him he was going to bed.We talked every night. He never called that night. Only 33 years old. My firstborn son. So full of life and love:( how am I suppose to live without him??? His 33 birthday is next week. It will be the hardest day other than the day he died. Please pray for me and my family.
WILL PRAY FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. GOD BLESS

We lost my nephew three years ago. He was 24. He was killed. He is my oldest sisters son. He left behind one son he knew and one he never got to meet. He was a great daddy his son was his world and vise versa. He was our world too. He was our only boy in our family for many years until my two sons came along. He was my nephew, little brother and son all combined in one because he was the one I had that special bond with. I am so proud of my sister and brother in law they are both being so strong, he was their only son. People often tell us we should have gotten over it by now, but when you know in your heart you loved ne was killed and the people responsible are walking the street free, there's no healing period. Even though he was grown he will always be one of my babies and one day the people who took him away from us will be caught because I have no intentions of stopping until that happens. I don't talk about him in past tense because he still walks with me everyday. I talk to him daily. Yes I still cry, but when I CRY I remember the good times we had the silly things he does. He loved to go shirtless and he would rub his chest and say "SEXY" I would say boy you aint right(lol) he would just laugh. What is even harder than just the fact of losing my nephew is losing him on my oldest sons birthday. My son looks at god in a total different light now. He's autistic and he don't understand why god took his cousin away from him on his birthday. The fact that we are a close family with strong family ties has helped us pull through this together.
I lost my son Joshua Feb. 17th 2012, not a day goes by that I don't think of him and cry. Some days I wish I wouldn't wake up and have to live another day without him. He flipped his Jeep in a ice/water filled ditch and drowned. He was 22. He was my baby. His son who is 5 now (his birthday was 3 days after the death of his Dad) lives with me. Everyone thinks that should make it easier but to see him cry for his daddy day after day adds to the pain. No child should have to go through so much pain and such a young age.My son was strong and I know he fought to get out of that Jeep and couldn't and that's all I see in my head day after day. When you lose a child there is no healing and there is no "getting over it" life just goes on weather we want it to or not. I am just looking forward to the day when I will see him again.
I LOST MY MOM MARCH 16th OF 2010! I FOUND HER DEAD ALSO 1 EVENING. I LOVE TO HEAR PEOPLE TALK ABOUT SOME OF THINGS SHE HAD DONE OR SAID. SORRY FOR EVERY ONES LOSS'S CAUSE I KNOW HOW YOU FEEL.
I wish you all would write the name of the person who died. It is easier to think of them with a name attached. My Momma and Daddy, Marie and Milton died 29 years ago six weeks apart. I miss them so much still to this day. I will say prayers for God to comfort you all in your sorrow and grief.
What a very sad story and terrible loss! Try not to think of how frightened he must have been, but try to think of the beautiful years you have enjoyed having him as your dearest Son. Loving memories!!
Ilost my son ASHLEY 15 YEARS AGO, AND THE STORIES OF HIM IS WHAT GIVES ME STRENGTH TO GO ON 1 DAY AT A TIME
I lost my daughter six years ago in April and I know how you feel. Its nice to hear someone talk about her and the relief knowing she isn't forgotten. I still grieve for her and I think I always will till my last breath. Such a great loss her life was only starting and she will never see her son graduate, go to college or get married I miss you so much Bobbi and I hate cancer it took you before your twenty-sixth birthday and your anniversary!
I am so sorry for your loss but remember the tears of sorrow will eventually turn into the tears of memory. I lost a son 23 years ago due to Leukemia and although he was only eight and we knew it was going to happen it doesn't make it any easier, a Loss of a child is just that! So my Prayers go out to all on this site who have lost a Child but I do believe that we will meet again . Love to you ALL
I Completely understand...My Husband & I just Lost Our Only Child & Son on April 5th, 2013 after an 18 month battle with Cancer at the age of 29...He contracted this in Iraq while serving in the US ARMY...He leaves behind a wife...2 Daughters...age 6 y/o & 2 y/o...& we are not able to see them for now...The Devastation...Heartache...are unmeasureable...I spoke for Matthew's Celebration of Life Service & stressed the importance to us of everyone's sharing of their memories & times with Matthew...For there will Never be new ones made...We are of Great Christian Faith...but we are still Human & in pain...At least we are somewhat consoled Matthew is with Our Lord & suffers no more...Until we meet again...So...my Thoughts & Prayers are with you as I have the same loss...Trust in the Lord & Lean on Him & Not our Own Understanding...which we will know God's Plan when it is time...It was a Privilege & Honor to be his parents...We were also so very close... God Bless You with His Peace & Love as I ask for everyday...Ted & Charlotte <3...And may I add...My Love...Heart...& Prayers to all those of us that have had to bury a Child...It is Not the Normal coarse of life events we expect to happen...Peace be upon you <3
We lost our only son, Colin and his 4 yr old daughter in a fire Sept 18, 2011. He died a hero, he managed to get his 6 yr old son out and went back in the find Sadie, they never made it out. We should never have to bury a child let alone a grandchild the very same day. We LOVE them dearly and miss them like you can't imagine. Some days I feel I can't go on another day, but we are raising Little Colin , his son. I also believe that we will meet again, prayers really do help us all.
It will be 5 years in November that my son Zachery died. This poem is so true that I love to hear people talk about him. Some people may feel uncomfortable when I talk about him, and I may cry a little, but my biggest fear is that he will be forgotten. My memories are bitter sweet of him. It still hurts to think about him, and I am hoping I will be able to think of him without it hurting soon. I miss him terribly and still can't believe that God allowed him to get sick and die. I never thought that I would outlive any of my children.
so sad xx
Someone I lost last year someone very special to me, today would have been his birthday, things just aren't the same their laughter their smile their lips and the things that was send what a person that they were, they were adorned by all my family and friend especially when went to the islands to see my nephew get married they were good people life gone much to soon, if I could whisper in your ear to tell you the things that I use to say to them I hope that they can hear them now, I remember he use to love to put baby oil on his head, when they visited they would always use that baby oil like I use to call him hey sweetie here's the baby oil oh how I miss those days just the presence of him made you felt like you were special to him which you knew that you were so today is his day, this is his celebration even though he did not smoke, drink, or do any drugs,which I'm glad that he didn't. Love of my life a day doesn't go by that I don't think about you I remember that first kiss and it just seems like yesterday. I know that we will meet again. Your friend your lover your everything. I miss you dearly no one will ever take your place. I use to always tell him that, and I don't care what anyone thinks about this. What happened between us is a special bond, we use to always say to one another it seems like we've been knowing one another much longer than we were together HAPPY BIRTHDAY BIG A ON BASS as he would say
It seems someone else shares the closeness that I also had with my best friend. Miss him dearly. I feel your pain.
Wow.. stories I've been reading and expecially yours means the world to me.. I lost my best friend my lover my everything done something wrong in life and he knows it but in my eyes my heart he never said anything wrong I forgave him for everything I own well and I still do as if you were still here. thank you for sharing your story
I need to correct myself.. I lost my best friend my lover my everything three months ago . he has been wrong many times and I always forgive him and he knows in my eyes he never did anything wrong. I talk to him everyday I miss him so much along with the rest of us and all the stories I have. I cry ever day . so much to say speak of him as an amazing man I was blessed to have him in my life for years.. I can't wait until the day we meet again until that day comes I still have a lot to do here on earth. and I feel for each and everyone story I have heard god bless you all
Always always let a person know how you feel while their here, never take anything for granted because you just don't know
I hate it
It seems like an eternity since my Son was killed in a car accident in Atlanta, Ga. I miss him so, he was my baby. Although he was 22. Life is short, and a parent is not supposed to out live their children. But God has the almighty hand in life and death. Love you Ronnie
My heart was breaking when the Dr.'s told us he would not live. He had to many massive heart attacks. God wanted him home, and it was so hard to understand. Love my Husband.
I allso lost my husband 3 month's ago he left a 12 year son it was sudden, not a day goes by that we don't speak his name thing's will never be the same again
I lost my friend and my husband four years ago and I still cry everyday. I love to hear stories about him and talk about him. I fear the kids won't remember him since they were only three and six at the time. Pete you will always be my one true live.
My son has been gone for 21 years on March 21st, it really hurts that nobody even mentions his name to me anymore. His father passed 1 year ago on April 17, and all of his grandparents are gone as well. Now I feel I am the only person who mourns. He was my only child and he was only 5 months old, somehow this year seemed worse knowing I was mourning ALONE. I'm sure he hasnt been forgotten, but it just really hurts thinking that nobody even mentions him anymore, when the pain is just as bad today as it was 21 years ago.
So sorry for your loss. My son died three months ago and people tell me to get over it! He died suddenly at 33 years old. I cry for him every day:(. I care about you and pray you can get over mean and uncaring people.xoxo
I AM VERY SORRY FOR ALL OF THESE PRECIOUS LIFES LOST. I ALSO LOST MY 33 YEAR OLD SON UNEXPECTEDLY, AND SUDDENLY A LITTLE OVER 3 MONTHS AGO. I FEEL AS IF IM GRIEVING MY SELF TO DEATH. HE WAS MY ONLY CHILD, I RAISED HIM AS A SINGLE PARENT. AND WE WERE SO CLOSE, IVE LOST NOT ONLY MY SON, BUT HE WAS MY BEST FRIEND AS WELL. ..ITS VERY HARD. MY THOUGHTS ARE WITH YOU AT THIS DIFFICULT TIME. (((((HUGS))))

I FEEL EVERYONES PAIN BECAUSE I LOST MY BEST FRIEND LOVER MY HUSBAND ON SEPT 2012 AND PPL ASK ME WHY DO YOU STILL CRY WHY? CAUSE I STILL HURT I ACHE FOR HIS HUGS HIS KISSES HIS KINDNESS FOR OTHERS AND HIS LOVE FOR ME EVERYONE KEEPS SAYING HE IS IN A BETTER PLACE I KNOW HE IS IN NO MORE PAIN AS HE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH STAGE 4 CANCER AND LIVED ONE MONTH..I WOULDNT WANT HIM BACK WITH THE TREMENDOUS PAIN HE WAS IN BUT IT DONT STOP THE FACT A PIECE OF MY HEART WAS BURIED WITH HIM THAT DAY..
I totally understand how you feel. I lost my baby sister to Breast Cancer July 2010, but it seems just like yesterday that I got that phone call. I still cry for her and this month is a hard month as her birthday is April 25th. She would have been 48. One of her sons doesn't like to come around me because I like to talk about my sister. I told him that is the way that I grieve for her. She was my best friend, she helped me take care of our mother and now my mother is lonely cuz she is not there. I would not want her back the way she was, but I miss her so much. We talked over alot of things. I know she watches over our mom and she will be there for her when my mom leaves this world. We know she is around. I know that she is also taking care of my little pug, that I had to put to sleep on March 29, 2013, til I join them. I still cry for my sister and now my puppy, so if you need to cry, you cry. There is nothing wrong with that. Until they loose someone, they can't understand. A piece of my heart died the day my sister died and I have a void in my life that can't be repaired. I will pray for you that the pain gets alittle softer and the memories alot more. You grieve your husband the way YOU need to.
this to my man I lost I miss you and I think of you and speak your name every day.. you are an amazing man not only to me but to everyone across your path in life now I know you're an amazing angel everyone is adoring you in heaven..you were full of life and energy never forget the last Christmas 2012 and New Year 2013 thank you for the past 4 years we spend together .. I'll always love you and I'll never forget about you and you were the one for me. I can't wait until we meet again .. Until that day comes I will take care and love everyone I need to do here on earth thank you lord and all the angels. Baby Love ill see you again
I found these post by accident but am so glad I did. I also lost my 32 year old son three days before Christmas in 2007. I found him gone in my vehicle and I will never get over that. He was my youngest out of two sons. I had lost my husband..my soulmate a year and half before that. My son who passed away had moved to Fl to be with me after my husband died. He was my support system though that. My other son could not be with me as he was serving in Iraq. So my George took over and made it easier to face each new day. When he died, I truly thought I would lose my mind. It was too much grief. I have lost so many dear ones...best mother, best mother in law anyone could have. Now I worry I will lose my other son too. I pray for all who posted and ask that I be included in their prayers also.
So sorry for everyone it helps to share the pain with someone else.We all grieve in different ways I will pray for all of you. A good cry helps for everyone grieving. Thanks for sharing and we will all see them again someday. God Bless everyone.
My sweet and precious Hubby lost his battle with Cancer on April 25, 2012. I sure do love and miss him alot. My thoughts and prayers are with all who has lost a love one or a friend.
i to have lost a lot of my family the past 3 and 4 years. everyone tells me it will get better. but i dont when. i lost my mother in 2009 and my stepfather 2010 my frist cousin my brother in law and a good friend of my mothers all to cancer.this february i lost a good friend i found her in her bed she had died the night before. her her husband died 10 days latter with cancer. sometime it is very hard to face. eyou very thing i do try to think they are not here. but i do know this i hope some day when i leave this world i will be able to see them again. i try to think of what we had together. to make it day by day. i will say a prayer for all of you to night.god bless of you just look up and you know where they are at.
No one day can finish without think to our dears. My auntie died two years ago.. Two days after her birthday... She got lot of pain due to a cancer...10 months.. She was always happy, full of life... She is still the best for me.. I don't know why it happened.. She always said.. We must accept all that life reserved for us.. And go ahead! I miss her
j'ai perdu mon père il y a deux ans et demi et seul la naissance de ma deuxième petite fille et la joie de vivre de son aînée ont pu me réconforter de cette perte incommensurable. les souvenirs sont nombreux et la vie dans le lieux où nous avons vécu pendant de si longues années est simplement insupportable.So I can understand what every one of you can feel for the lost of a beloved one is horrible. We cannot ask why for God is the only who knows and he cannot tell. We just have to accept and live on.
I lost my brother a few years ago, the loss I still haven't accepted although I was tought all things happen for a reason. I say screw that this hurts the pain remains. For those who have losed some there love one I send my prayer and regards.
I just lost my daughter on Jan 10, 2013. I NEED to hear stories about how she touched so many people. She was disabled from birth and I knew that I would outlive her. She died once before she was born and fought to come back. The doctors told me that she wouldn't survive the night, then the week, then the year. When my Dallas passed she was just 9 weeks away from her 17th birthday. Everyone who met her loved her. She made me a stronger person but I feel so weak without her right now! This has helped me and I have shared it on my facebook page so that people know that is more than ok to say my daughters name, even if it makes me cry
I found out my 33 year old son has brain cancer december 14- 2012 No cure he had 15 treatments of radiatin and was put on an FDA Test Drug called Zelboraf to prolong his life ,he has went off the Zelboraf3 times since being put on it because of being allrgic,His cancer doctor wants him to go back on it again but my son looked me in the eyes and said mom whats the point of taking this drug and beig so sick all the time to where I wish it would end and knowig the end result is death..my son stoped taking the Zel drug 3 weeks ago,now hes gettin severe head pain again throwing up days at a time.Im so afraid for him and im afraid for myself' I dont want to lose him ,the thought of never hearing or seeing him kills me.He is such a gentle soul kind hearted young man,but when I look at him all I see is my little boy my son my Baby!How does a mother go on after losing their child? Its not like when he was little and got a boo boo or a cold I could always make him feel better take it away,I cant do that this time and I feel helpless,,,,I feel like im letting my child down..I dont sleep at night and when I do I wake up all through the night with ice cold tears covering my face.Sometimes I cry so long and hard i cant breath..I pray this is all a nightmare and I wake up to everythng being normal again..
I found out my daughter had brain cancer July 21,2010. She was only 5 years old. I felt like we were having a terrible nightmare. There is no cure for this horrible disease. She had 30 treatments of radiation and put on steriods to keep the tumor from swelling. I felt so helpless as a mother seeing my baby going through this. But she was a real trooper, strong and never complained. Over time I gain my strength from her. She touch everyone that she came in contact with. Always smiling and laughing and still being my little princess that she was. Long story short, she passed away Feb. 3,2011. The youngest of 7 children, my life did a drastic change. I never thought that I would lose a child at the age of 6. I cry every night, can't sleep. Can't eat. I feel my life will never be normal again.
remembering my lovely daughter DONNA MARIE
I wish I could hug each and every one of you. Don't get over it! How cruel that someone would say such a thing to a grieving person. You will learn to survive but never get over it. Always keep their memory alive. Share them everywhere you go. God has them now but you have their memory, their name, written on your heart. If I can pray specifically for any one of you and your phamilies please come visit me. My co worker Jessica lost her little cousin. Richie was two. He was going to the store to get a new ball and ran from the car into the parking lot. Someone obeying the law driving very slowly hit him and he died instantly. His parents and two older siblings witnessed the accident. Prayer is all I can offer his phamily but they will tell his story as long as they are alive. Never forget and don't let anyone tell you to stop mourning. I wish I were a wealthy woman and I could find a way to honor each one of your precious losses. When my own niece passed away so unexpectedly at 18, she had everything to live for but became very ill very quickly and died. She was a superb athlete and a park near her former high school is named in her memory. Memories are what weave our lives together and make us stronger. Trust God, He will always hold you in His hands and know your precious loved ones are sharing in His eternal joy. Love, Blessings and Peace to each one of you! Anne
I lost my son last year..He was my best friend. we did everything together..We had just finished walking the dog....We came in the house and he was ordering a part for his lawnmower...I was folding laundry two feet away from him...Something burst in his brain...I didnt even realize it until I turned around because the dogs wouldnt stop barking...He was gone..I got my husband in the living room and he started cpr right away..He was in a medical induced coma for ten days...I at least got to hold him for ten more days..He had just turned nineteen. Every day is a struggle..I just keep thnking how he wanted me to be happy..Life will never be the same though.
I was saddened to hear of all the sons daughters mothers and father that everybody has lost but it is so true whst thevpoem says, i lost my mom 17 years ago on the 19 th of july 1996 she died 13 days after i git married i was the only person who was with her when she passed as my dad went out for some fresh air and not a day goes bybwere i dont miss her, she never got to meet her 2 grandsons but i tell them all the time about what a speical grandmother they had and i will always keep her memory alive untill i take my last breath and then i hope my children will do the same.
I have read all of the above stories. As tears are rolling down my face, my heart goes out to each and every single one of you. I can't imagine the pain of losing a child or my husband. We lost my mother suddenly on March 29, 2011. She went peacefully in her sleep. She never complained, so no one knew just how sick she was. She had just got out of the hospital after contracting E. Coli poisoning. She was so pale and weak, but she refused to show any weakness. She was a fighter. She said that she was feeling much better that morning and was gone by 6:00 P.M.. My then,10 yr old, niece was there with her and thought that my mother was simply taking a nap as she laid dying. My father came in and found that she wasn't responding to his voice, so he shook her only to find her no longer breathing. He immediately began CPR until the paramedics got there. They said that she'd been gone too long and couldn't be revived. She was only 59. My father struggles daily with her passing. They had been a couple since she was 15 and he was 16 and he is so lost without her. She was the love of his life. He still sprays her perfume on her pillow and keeps her urn where he can always see her. He refuses to move into a new home and he still sleeps in the same bed that they shared. My mother and I were very close. Her death has been the hardest thing that I have ever had to deal with. I miss her so much every single day. I still catch myself thinking of calling her to see what she's up to and then I will remember she's not there anymore. My father has tried to carry on his life, but I think that he's just trying to be strong for our family... but his struggles show. After my mother passed away, my aunt, my dad's baby sister, and I got really close as she helped me through the hardest part(s) of my mourning process. Well, Feb.28, 2013,at 3:00 A.M., she had a massive stroke that ultimately took her life at age 51! It makes me so scared to be close to anyone again. I have tried to mourn her death alone and its so hard. I just want to call her all the time. Recently,I have been diagnosed with severe RA and 2nd stage liver disease (due to the medications that I have been put on since I was 27 for my pain) and even though I am in a lot of pain emotionally and physically, I am trying to be an example to my children as to moving on with life as best as you can. I break down mostly at night and pray and cry in private that God gives me the strength that I need to keep this up as long as he needs me to. It has been 2 years since the begining of my nightmare(s)and its not any easier today, but I try to keep my chin up and I'm looking forward to the day that we all meet again. I just know how hard it has been for me and I can't imagine the pain of losing a child. My thoughts and prayers are with you and everyone that has experienced the same type of tragedy as yourselves. God has a plan for us all... It doesn't always make sense to us, but in time it may. I try to remember that everything happens for a reason, but its hard when you're in so much emotional pain and have so many questions. I know that you understand where I am coming from. Please know that you are not alone in your struggles. We are all there with you in some form or another. Its our duty to keep our loved ones alive in memories and celebration(s) of their lives. God bless you all.
I gave birth n lost my little girl all within 24 hours im the only one that ever really speaks her name even if its just a whisper to myself i long for my husband to speak her name so i can talk about her n that day so i can cry my heart out n relieve some of this pain, its unbearable and at times i feel like im the only one whi cares enough to keep her memory alive...
I'm so sorry for your loss, and Happy Mother's Day to you <3
My husband was killed at 8:53 am on March 24, 2013 ~ Palm Sunday. He was just around the corner of the property where he was going to begin spring clean-up for one of his customers, as he did independent landscape maintenance. He stopped at the stop sign and went to take a left when a car doing approx. 80-100+ mph T-boned the drivers side of our car: the impact demolished that side of the car, killing my husband. The man driving the 2001 BMW convertible that killed my husband got out of his car with a scratch on his arm, was aware of what he had done, yet ran when the police showed up.After he broke into 2 homes in the area and took evasive action of being caught, he was finally apprehended after a bit over 4 hours.This past Friday morning, 5/10/13, he was released from jail at 9:10 a.m., as the judge had reduced his bail from $500,000 to $50,000.My husband was such a kind, loving, caring man ~ just a little more than 50 years old and so full of life. We were looking forward to things getting better for us, and we had lots of plans for the future. We have a 4 year old grandson who loved his Grandpa so very much.Our 13 years together were some of the best of my life. It's hard to grasp how such a good man could be reduced to just ashes in a box, while the man who killed him is now out of jail and able to enjoy Mother's Day with his mother, while my mother and I grieve for the loss of my husband, who did as much as he could to help my mother and always showed her the utmost of love and respect.He spent more than half his life in the U.S., and had never traveled back to his homeland to see his family. We were planning to do so, and were even talking about possibly living there, as Papa had designated some of his land to my husband. Now those dreams are shattered. My husband's family is devastated about his death.At least my husband is at peace, now. Life had been such a struggle for him, and I did as much as I could to make him happy: we were opposites in a lot of ways, but we always did what we could to make the other happy. He smiled a lot more as the years of us being together progressed.He was such an amazing man in so many ways: small in stature, but he could out do a man twice his size when it came to strength related tasks. And I've never known a man who loved to work like he did, yes, he actually loved to work, especially outdoors. Being of Mayan descent, he had a natural mechanical logic that was amazing. He loved tools and carpentry: he finished a beautiful round table just days before he was killed ~ I will stain it and put his box of ashes on it. Oh my how I miss him, his sweet face and soft lips and his hands, which were always so warm. The night before he was killed, holding his hand and talking with him a little before I fell asleep was the last thing I did, as he arose early while I still slept and went on his way to work. It's hard to think about going on without him. It is only because of my son and grandson that I do.Te amo mucho para siempre, mi amor, te amo mucho.
I have lost so many loved ones in my life, and yes it still breaks my heart every second of everyday, my children, my parents and close firends.but for my other children and grandchildren life must go on, because of them new memories are made and I hope they will remember me with love and laughter when my time comes.
Ilost my wife Charlotte last SEPTEMBER after 48yrsof married life it was and still is hard comming to terms without her not seeing her beautiful smile hearing her sweet voice or her laughter but when people say her name I think of the good times we spent together I eill never forget her god bless you my love till we meet again ..xxxxxxx
I lost my husband of 22 years november 16, 2012 he was 44 years old. exactly 1 week from the birth of our first grandchild. I walked in from work that night after working late as usual to find him dead. My life has not been the same since I miss him so much and keep trying to tell myself to stop the what ifs and I wish I could have done this or that knowing that this was God's will and not mine. It was his time. I feel that he passed away right after I left for work that morning and have thought that if I waited just a little longer he would still be here today, but I know that there is nothing I could have done since it was God's will. Sometimes that is so hard to remember!!! and it does not make me missing him any better. I Love You Jeff!!!
I lost my son to suicide 5 years ago! People do not like to talk about it, but I need to! He lived for 29 years and not a day goes by that I don't yearn to hold him once again and say good -bye!
My son took his life a couple of months ago and its so hard trying to carry on. he woul have been 23 today we can't make any more memories with him so hearing someone share one helps put atrue smile on my face!

I lost my Daughter Lindsay 2011 & it has been the hardest thing I've ever gone through I am moving on, but I have set backs every now & then. I love when i hear someone talk about her she was so funny and took no crap off of anyone...she was my baby Girl & will always be.
I lost my son in a car accident on Dec 22 2012. my son and I were very close and this has been the hardest thing in my life I have dealt with when he was 2 months old we had an accident that left him in a chair but he did not let that get him down so full of life and such a great person. he was always there for his friends and family. he could light up a room with his smile and God knows I miss him every day. my heart goes out to all of you cause I know the pain that comes with losing a child may God bring us all thought this. he was twenty three when he passed.
Today is 4 years since our son left us. I never got to caddle or kiss him good-bye the way a parent should. So I yearn for that hug and kiss from my son MIKIE. This has been the hardest thing I have gone through. I try to move on but sometimes setbacks happen and that is when I wish I could hear someone talk about you and make me laugh. Sometimes all I want is for someone or me yell Mikie!!!! I miss your smile, your voice saying and laughing "DANG MAMMA", I miss your brother and you goofing around and me yelling quit you're going to knock him off the couch or whenever you stop to visit and would tell us I can one stay an hour, how I wish I had that hour with you now. I love you Son
I lost my son a year and a half ago at such a young age he was only six in a tragic drowning his birthday is may 10th and the worst is that he passed away 4 days before my birthday and I harried him two days after tragicly my 4 yr old daughter 2yrs old at the time was also in the drowning shis alive but suffered servire brain damage due to back of oxygen to her brain but thru the year and months has proven to me that I can never give up on life and as much as it my hurt to continue we must move forward till we met again with our loved ones who have gone before us :( r.I.p Juanito Rodriquez jr 5/10/05 10/16/2011
In Memory of Gary Cummings by Dana. Gary and I had 12 years together, although we weren't married in the eyes of the legal system we shared everything as if we were. He supported me through going back to school for a degree in Healthcare Administration and was there when I received my degree. I was there when he had surgery for colon cancer. I would have been there whether he had asked or not because I loved him very much and still do today. July 2nd of this year will be the anniversary of his death. It was not something we expected as he was fine earlier in the evening. I have been told I need to move on and find someone else but that is not possible when he took part of my heart and soul with him that day. I do know he is with me in spirit and lives in my heart.

Lost my son, killed at work when 3000 lb. steel sheets slid off forktruck and crushed him. Losing ones children is so different than losing parents, so much worse. Cody- 01/30/89-07/27/12
I lost my mum, Shirley, on 7th July 2013, I expected to cry, to feel sad, but the pain and aches are the worst part. I was her carer for 10 years, so am now out of work which leaves me little else to think of, I know I will always miss her and our chats, we loved doing so many things together, each will be difficult to continue, but I know she wants me to carry on, and have fun and adventures.
