Thank you, feeling like you are not alone does help. I wish there was a way we could make it all not be real but I know that isn't possible. We have to go on until it's our time to leave this world. I want to be happy again I wonder if I ever will be

I also needed an antidepressant when my son died. I couldn't get out of bed. I was sleeping all the time. Not really sleeping just laying there and crying. I have tried two different antidepessants and I am now on wellbutrin. It seems to help. At least I don't sleep all day anymore. I am getting out of the house and talking to people. My son died January 16,09. It still doesn't seem real to me.

Thank you so much for the much needed hugs, wishes and prayers. I know those feelings don't go away, they just surface long enough to bring us a smile or a tear. My heart goes out to you and your family for your loss. I too lost my brother in law a year ago and we were very close. I just keep remembering how lucky my Sister and our family was to have ever known him and his kindness at all, he was a gift to all that knew him. Many hugs right back to you...

Thank you for your kind words. My emotions are still so raw as I lost my son only 8 weeks ago and since then have had to deal with my first Mother's Day without him as well as his 21st birthday. I look forward to the on-line support of others that are also dealing with a loss.

I came back after 2 weeks visiting my dad in rehab. They were not properly taking care of him, so he developed a vicious cough that was neglected. We put him back in hospital and just yesterday, he was released home. I think his illness is drug induced but doctors won't say anything. He is not our dad anymore. He has mentally changed, and he is even weaker. my sister has the burden of taking care of him.
he will either continue to deteriorate, or stay the same. i am going to see him again. it is very hard, because we do not know what to do. there is nobody to help us.

Dear Katherine,

I am so very sorry about the physical loss of your dear daughter Irene. What I have learned in life as that our loved ones who are residing with God continue to see and hear us and will try to let us know this by the many ADC signs that they give us. They want us to know that they are still a huge part of our lives and that we can continue to talk to them (or write them letters) and they will hear us!

Your daughter loves it when you talk to her.

Katherine, I see that you are continuing to relive the moment in time where she passed over in front of you, Hon. This must be so painful and sorrowful for you. I would like to suggest a wonderful book that will help to change that moment in time for you. The book is Embraced by the Light by Betty Eadie, who had a near-death experience.

When you read this book, it will actually help you to follow Irene's spirit popping out of her physical body, going through the tunnel of Light and ending up in Heaven with God and the most incredible feeling of love one can possibly experience.

You will also be able to see some of the things that Irene gets to do in Heaven and will be able to rejoice with her that she is in a place of such wonder and love!

When you find your mind returning the place in time when your daughter passed over, you will be reminded that this place in time no longer exists for her. She is not suffering and she loves it where she is at!!! She would love for you to be happy for her and to reinvest in life again, knowing this fact.

Also, please be on the lookout for ADC signs from your daughter, so that you will understand she is still a huge part of your life. You can read a list of 20 common ADC signs by going to my webpage at:

Also, your daughter may visit you in very comforting dreams where you can talk to her and hug her!

Please know that your daughter is still your best friend and is very actively involved in your life. Love never ends.

God bless you,
In Christ's Love,
Christine Duminiak
