Child Loss / Re: Remembering Our Children ~ Video
« on: August 02, 2012, 09:57:53 AM »
First I would like to thank "Grainofsand" for all her hard work on this video as I remember it well when it was first posted and it meant alot to see alot of children remembered so beautifully.

That being said, I would like to say that I think a "personal private" message sent to Grainofsand to request it to be removed from Youtube would've been a much better way to handle this, rather than post a public message pretty much humiliating someone who was only trying to brighten our day.  I have not been on this site in quite sometime and will have to say that this is much of the reason why.  The knee-jerk reactions and posts are not necessary and  we ALL have to understand that we all have feelings that are easily hurt.  I understand some of us not wanting their child's picture posted on Youtube but this could've been handled in a much more understanding way.

This site is nothing what is was when I first found it 4 years ago.  For this reason, I will not be back but I wish you all the best.

Child Loss / Re: Child Loss - board info

Hi Terry!! Long time no see!

Well I for one would've REALLY hoped a private board was available at the time I first joined. After my ex hacked into my posts, I rarely posted anymore just knowing that everything I said was being read by him. But after being on Facebook and seeing what's going on some other grief groups, if someone really wants to get in, they'll manipulate their way in one way or another.  Well just my two cents!!

Child Loss / Re: Question for parents who have lost a child....
« on: September 03, 2011, 08:59:21 PM »
Hello BluegrassBelle,

I can pretty much only re-state what others have said on this post...what has helped me the most after losing my 11 y/o son Landon is having others that will openly talk to me about him.  I want others to remember him, tell me stories about him, happy or sad...I want to remember & cherish each & every moment! This is from a mother's perspective, a father grieves differently...more inward & to themselves but you can possibly bring him out a bit by sharing your stories, your love for your brother, as well as the love he cherished for all of you.  Yes, it is indeed different for mother & father...but we're both grieving the loss of someone we cherished so deeply, for so many years.  I hope that this site and the posts given to you will help you & your family...it has been my saving grace.  Take care & God bless...

Thanks for remembering our Landon Terry!

The boys & I spent the evening doing something Landon always loved doing....bowling!  Along w/ some pizza, we were able to spend an evening doing something that Landon enjoyed so much.  Much love.....Shelly

((((Hello Dear Friends))))

It's been ahile since I've checked in...I just won't post anymore due to continual issues with my ex.  Thank you so much for remembering my Landon's angel date...so hard to believe it's been four years...so damn unfair.  My daughter wasn't able to make it up this year so it was just my two son's and two of Landon's friends to help us let off balloons for Landon.  Here's a pic...miss you so Lan-Man.... xoxox  Mom

Child Loss / HELLO EVERYONE...IT'S LANDON'S MOM ASKING FOR PRAYERS
« on: February 27, 2011, 09:49:55 PM »
Hello my friends....I know it's been some time since I've posted but a family of mine has suffered a terrible loss I'm asking for your prayers.  I work for the State which handles the county wildland & all risk response (fire department).  A wonderful friend of mine that I've had for almost 20 years (he was only 39 y/o) passed away last night totallay unexpectedly!!  PLEASE SEND YOUR PRAYERS OUT TO HE, HIS FAMILY, AND HIS LITTLE 8 Y/O GIRL.  He was the best man you could've ever known and I just don't understand why things happen to such amazing, caring people...   Shelly

Child Loss / Re: Leaving the Board
« on: August 09, 2010, 10:04:15 PM »
Wow....what is going on here???  I am so sad to see that Judy was leaving, couldn't really understand the reasons behind (since I never knew there were problems to begin with).  I will have to agree to a point that this board has changed in a way, since I first found it back in Sept '07, just a few months after losing losing my Landon.  The amount of responses I received after my first post (which took me a lot of courage to post) was overwhelming and it literally felt like 100 of my closest friends surrounding me with hugs, comfort, and a shoulder to cry on, for you were the ones who knew what I was feeling.  I admit that my contributions and posts in this wonderful group have dwindled and for that, I am truly sorry ...my situation much different than most since my ex took my security blanket away by hacking in to these posts and using them against me in a very cruel way.

I hate to see anyone leave...you are all like my family, grieving and trying to grow together.  I hope Judy changes her mind....she has been a wonderful mentor to me throughout these terrible years.  Tom, I thank you for all you've done to keep this site on-going....a difficult task I am sure and for all the moderators...without your support, this group would not exist.


God bless all our lost loved ones, until we see them again....

Thank you so much to all of you, my friends for all your thoughts and prayers for all of us on Landon's 15th birthday.  It is still so hard to believe that he was only 2months away from turning 12 when we lost him, and now he would be 15!  I feel so robbed that none of us will ever get to see what Landon would've grown up to be....what would he look like now?  This is so unfair, especially for my Landon 

We were able to go to one of Landon's favorite places, camping in Lamoille Canyon up in the Ruby Mountains for the weekend, and hiked all the way up to Lamoille Lake on his birthday.  I really didn't think I was going to be able to make it...the altitude and being out of shape really made it a hard hike for me.  But my sons Bryan & Christian (and I'm sure Landon) kept pushing me on until we finally made it...and it was well worth all the effort.

We had some wonderful friends go camping with us and they went hiking on a different trail and took some amazing pictures along the way where they honored Landon.  It made my heart smile.  I've attached them for you all to see.....


The first picture was the trail they were hiking....at the end of the trail, they made an etching for Landon, and the 3rd was a flower they found for him as well.  I couldn't have asked for a better tribute...

((((Judy))))

I tried sending this and when I checked today, it didn't go through so it must've logged me off when I had hit the submit button.

First let me say, with all the others, I'm sorry I missed Dougies Heavenly Birthday and hope you were able to spend the day doing something that you both loved doing together.

I can so relate when you say that it's so hard to "wrap your brain" around their ages now....how does the time go by so fast when it seems they were just here with us yesterday?  My Landon was just 2 months shy of turning 12 before we lost him on June 1, 2007..... in just 8 days, he would be turning 15 !!!  I can't imagine how much he would've grown in that time.....I see all his friends and most of them tower over me, what would he look like now?  What would his voice sound like now?  Just so damn unfair for all of us.

Again, I hope your precious Dougie gave you a sign and you were able to feel him near you (always would be the best!!).

Take care Judy & Happy Heavenly Birthday Dougie....

(((((Terry)))).

I haven't checked in here in awhile and I was so shocked to read your post.  I wish all of us could be with you there, to give you a great big hug, you've given so much comfort to all of us, I just wish there was more we could do for you right now.

It must've been terrible, of all rooms, why did they have pick that same room where you last saw your precious Jeff....I can only imagine your complete panic.  I'm glad you Dad is home for now, but it must break your heart the condition he is in.  My Dad is 84 this year and is bedridden, has had several strokes, has emphysemia, and it breaks my heart to see him how he is.....not the Daddy that raised me or cared for our family.  My sister works so hard to care for him, she deserves a gold medal for all the work she's done to keep him comfortable.

Please keep us posted dear friend and know that we're all here keeping you in our thoughts & prayers.  Take care of yourself and know that Jeff is watching over you too!!


Love,

Thanks for all the compliments guys...but 7 months of winter sure grinds on a person after awhile!!  Sounds like we're all pretty spread out & would have to make a central meeting ground to make this happen, but I should would love to meet all my wonderful friends here!!

Yes.....June sure "sucks" and I wish I could rip the month completely out of the calendar, wishful thinking I know.

I just wanted to thank you so much for remembering Landon, and all of our lost loved ones.  You are such an inspiration to all of us, especially the new members here who need so much support in the first months/years trying to cope.  You have lost more than anyone could ever imagine but yet, you continue to support everyone else....thank you dear friend from the bottom of my heart.

Landon's Mom forever, Shelly
