why does everyday seem like the last. Nothing new nothing to look forward to but going to bed and counting another day finally gone. I love my son and he is the only thing keeping me going since my daughters death. Still can not believe this is my life. My life has been hijacked. i know my daughter is around me i know she wants the best for us and for us to be happy. i just can not wrap my mind around not seeing her for possibly 40 years or so.

for fawnas sweet 16 we had a balloon lift with all of her friends. We had cake and food. We wrote messages and tied them to the balloons. It helped alot to make it through because i felt i was doing something for her. That is what is going on in my profile pic i will probably make it annual. I am sure her friends will stop coming eventually but i will do it as long as i physically can.
compassionate friends has an online support chat and local chapter meeting for those who have lost children or siblings. Just took part in a nationwide candel lighting ceremony to remember the children we miss so much. I hope this info may be helpful to some one
Melissa- I really can't imagine how losing your daughter must feel; I don't know how people even breathe after losing a child. Those who study grief say it takes a year to even get past the worst layer of grief. My thoughts are with you. Susan
Melissa, I have found there are no adequate words to express my condolences to you on the loss of your daughter but I am so sorry for your loss. I have come to believe that grieving is a life long process but it will gradually soften and intertwine with our daily lives. We will never forget our daughters but one day I hope (and pray) the daily, agonizing grief will morph into a joyful and pain free memory. Also, never give up the hope your daughter will communicate with you. My daughter communicated with me for the first time on June 4, 2009 (she was died on May 25, 2009) and her most recent. communication was on December 9, 2009.
LIke you, I also have questions regarding the circumstances surrounding my daughter's death and I have come to realize I may never have the answers.
Be kind to yourself and take care.
