Profile Information

About Me:
I'm a wife, mother, and grandmother. I am also a therapist, but that isn't my reason for being here. Mostly, I'm a deeply grieving mother.
About my Loss:
My 41 year old son passed away suddenly while on a Caribbean cruise on March 21, 2013. He and his wife were celebrating their 9th wedding anniversary. Chris died in international waters and his body was taken to a funeral home in St. Maarten, where he was cremated before being flown back to the USA. I never got to see him one last time to say goodbye.

Thank you Michelle. I am sorry for your loss as well. I appreciate the support from you and all who are here. I lost my son Tim on 9/5/17. He was 20 years old. I wake up each morning, not knowing how I am going to get through each day.

Thank you, Michelle.  My condolences to you as well.  Hard to post right now.  It makes it more real.

Thank you, Michelle.  I am sorry for your loss as well.  After 6 years it has not gotten easier.  I grieve hard every day.  Now the holidays are coming.  Ugh.

Thank you Michelle. I have had a really hard time of it.... I'm sure like all parents of deceased children. It's such a sad and lonely road to travel and I hate it!  It's like so many country roads ROUGH!!!!

dear Michelle, I hope you're well. I know the holidays are very hard to deal with. Everyone has their way of dealing with a loved ones passing. mine. Is talking to my son Scott as though he is here with me. I don't want to sound like a crazy lady but it helps me. I don't have long drawn out conversations but I do include him in some things I do from time to time. although it has only been eleven months since his passing I have come to realize he is gone and I must deal with it for my own sanity. I do believe in the hear after so I do think Scott can see and hear me. Of. Purse there are no guarantees but it helps me from falling apart all the time. Maybe you feel as I do. we have to hold ourselves together some how. Please take care of yourself.
A friend, Charlotte Finklea

Thank you, Michelle.  I am preparing to have a meeting with the San Diego Lifeguards and the press.  One channel was very kind and called me to ask me about my son, then reported what a great kid he was, that he was loved and cherished by his family, that he worked 2 jobs and went to school in a sincere effort to provide for his 7 month old daughter, and that he is survived by four little brothers.  Every other local channel couldn't have cared less, and the San Diego Lifeguard spokesman is definitely on my radar.  My best friend was at the beach when they found Brian, and she made it very clear to him that what he was doing was wrong and painful, but he is just so excited to have the cameras on him, he didn't care.  I have every intention of having a meeting with him and his boss to let them know exactly how much they hurt my family with their lies and lack of compassion.  I'm so sorry that any of us have to belong to this club -- I read elsewhere that the Bereaved Mother's Club is one that all women avoid because the dues are much too high.  I'd give everything I have (that is not living), even give my own life, if I could bring him back.  I'm old, I lived my life and had the opportunity to raise my children, while his life was just beginning.  It is just so incredibly wrong.
