((((((Barbara))))))

I'm so sorry. I know how badly you are missing your beautiful PATRICK. And it 'does' at many times, especially on the 'dates', feel like yesterday.

I am holding you close in Love and Understanding and you are in my thoughts and prayers for strength to see you through this very difficult time.

Love...Terry

There is no escaping these anniversaries that bring such sadness and longing. Reminding us of the enormity of loss we experienced in those most fragile days, weeks, months.  That intensity is not sustainable throughout our everyday lives but comes full force when we are facing angel days, birthdays, Christmas, etc.  As though it were yesterday.

Keeping Patrick in my thoughts today and wishing you strength as you pick up and carry on as best you can.

Your Hoosier friends have thought about you and talked about you and Patrick all day.   We send you hugs and lots of love, prayers for strength and God' presence, and support today and always.  

We wish we could bring Patrick back for you,  would never ever wish harm to him, and at the same time are so thankful for the gift that you and Patrick gave my bosses husband...a new liver and new chance at life.   

And I am so thankful for the gift of bringing us together here on webhealing. What were the odds that you, grieving for your son,  would come here for comfort a year ago, and I would come here as I had for 6 yrs,  to thank God for my friends new chance at life.   I dont  know about you but I dont believe in chance encounters.  We are proof that there is someone bigger our there aligning the stars and placing people along our path to get us through this journey we call life,  and grief. 

Can't wait to meet you this weekend, my new friend.

Lauren

Barbara, I think getting through the first anniversary is so difficult, second only to finding out your child has died. For me it was like having to live the experience all over again only this time knowing how it would turn out. My heart is with you at this time. May the days lighten even though you miss your boy so much.
with love, Kay (Jill and Lizzie's mom)

I think jillsmom said it exactly right - It's like living it over only this time you know the ending.

I know I'm a day late but I want you to know that I'm holding you and your family close.

Sending Peace....
