Hello Everyone!



I have been riding the "emotional" roller coaster of grief since May 25, 2009 when my daughter, Angela, was killed in a tragic 4 wheeler accident. She was only 33 years old. The accident occured in North Pole, AK. where she lived with her husband. I live in San Antonio, TX which is our home town.



We were so close as far as mother/daughter relationships go. We called, texted, or emailed each other daily, sometimes several times a day. She was so happy...she… Continue

I just don't know what to say, that's a lot to deal with only 2 days apart. I showed my boyfriend the photos of your beautiful daughter. I told him you help me so much just by knowing you are there. I'm new at this so i don't know if I can help you, but I would love to hear more about your daughter also. sandy

HI Laura,
My son died last month and I am struggling to live without him. Do you have any advice for someone like me who has lost their only child? I had another son acually but he was still born.. My other son Jesse would have been 20 next month... he was my best friend. I would appreciate your thoughts.

Hi Laura,
Thank you for the comment you left for me. You have a beautiful daughter, I am sorry for your loss. I love the painting of her, it's really beautiful.

Hi Laura,
Thankyou for the advice. My mom and I werent exactly on the best terms when she passed, so sometimes it's hard not to feel guilty. But, I know that it's just how girls are with their moms when their in their teens. I just didnt get the after part, the part where I realize how much she did for me and I get to reconnect with her and have an adult relationship with my mom. I had the realization, just didnt get the comfort part.
I am really sorry about your loss. A friend of mine, his 15 year old brother died 4 years ago. I remember his mom always talking about it with me. We connected because of it. From what I have been told, loosing a child is the greatest loss, I couldnt ever imagine. I am so sorry.
I am here as well, If you ever need to talk!

Laura Thank you for your response. I am still trying to come to terms with the fact that this is real, and she won't be here anylonger. My heart aches for her, we had a very special relationship also. We lost her Dad in 2002 and she and I have had to grieve for him the last 7 years. We were so happy at Christmas and then this. I'm not very computer literate, but I'll try to stay in contact. Thank you again Pat

Thank you for the beautiful comment you left for me. I am so sorry for your loss and I seen what my Mom and Dad are going through. It is terrible! I have a daughter and I can not imagine the pain. I know how it hurts for my Sister, but my Daughter...wow! God Bless you and know I am thinking of you. Thank you for sharing your story with me.

Laura...it is hard to explain but i know exactly what you mean. maybe he is doing the very best he can right now too. sometimes that has to be enough. i know at the time i wanted my husband to share in my depth of grief. of course he couldn't. he will only understand if he ever loses one of his children. i pray for his sake he never has to come to that understanding. take care, find something beautiful today because there is still lots of beauty in this world...

Laura, I'm so sorry for your loss and we are in agreement...we get better but we nver get over. I am also sorry that your husband can not give the support you are so badly needing at this time. My ex husband was the same. I think he just didn't know how. Men think they have to be so strong. Maybe he thinks by trying to get back to the norm of everyday life will help you do the same. Yes, he has suffered a loss too but he really doesn't understand. Not his fault. I can sort of step back and understand this now about John...at the time it was much harder to see. Stay in touch...connie

Thank you, Laura. My heart goes out to you; words sometimes just don't express the enormity of feeling in a situation. You must miss her terribly. Susan

Homicide Survivors Group

I'm starting this group in hopes that people who come to oninegriefsupport in the U.S.  can share in their experiences and grief for homicide related deaths. There are tons of support grief services for cancer, alzheimers, loss of children, suicide, ..I could go on. But there are not many support groups for homicide related issues. With the growing gun-related deaths, I thought it would be prudent to create this small sub-group here.I know that grief is very unique and it shouldn't be compared…See More

"Pavika,  Regrets... I have them too. I met a man in 2011. We were friends for years. I was in love with him. Yet, I never took the chance to further it. I thought I had all kind of time. I thought I was being patient. Then... He committed…"
