"thank u Karen R. It is so nice to hear someone else say they KNOW my pain and mean it!!! I dont think we ever get used to the loss , i think we just get used to living with that part of our heart gone. The embedded pain, i doubt will evr go away…"
Marti, we all grieve a little different, but I can relate to some of the things you said. I know how you feel, but I want you to know that little by little it will ease up. It doesn't go away, but it won't be there constantly. In the beginning (91/2 months ago) I thought I would not survive myself and I really didn't want to, but now when I don't have such an awful day I am able to thank God for giving me a break. My son had a little girl 21 months old when he died and we are so grateful to have her, but it also breaks our hearts to know that she will not have her daddy. Feel your pain, cry, scream, pray. You have a right to feel whatever you are feeling. Blessings, Ann

"It's tough when you lose several immediate family members at once...sometimes you wonder if it's some sort of endurance test. This happened to my cousin many years back. It took time and support from other family members for…"
I have been befuddled over the passing of the 10 year old boy that was hit by a car last week. My grandchildren were in my care all last week so there wasn't much time for deep thought. Npw that I am alone now I'm having lots of thoughts about it, so I went to the farm for a little distraction, plus the grass out there really needed cutting. I brought my dog Zero with me. Zero's getting old and I want him to have a good summer. Anyway Zero and I took a trip to the farm. I buzzed around cutting…See More

This is for anyone who has lost somone to cancer. I lost my adopted Mom to breast cancer some years ago. She was everything I could have asked for. She loved me because I was just me. She also loved my family and children as if they were her own.See More
