Title: Where is everyone from?

Hi All!

From time to time, we post where we are from and some of us have met from the Board by doing this. It's surprising how many of us are a lot closer than we know!

And, remember Annie's bringing the chicken!!! Much Love to you, sweet Annie!!!

I live in Anza, California, which is in the mountains above Palm Desert.

Hey Don,

I am from the Main board and am also from New Jersey (shore area).  I have lived here all my life, and despite all the bad stuff,  I still LOVE New Jersey!!!  We are definitely COOL!!!

Flemington is beautiful.  I remember going to the Stengel factory with my grandmother when I was a kid, and, now, of course, all the wonderful shopping that is there.

Hallo muddeez!

Hi Janka,
     Nice to meet you.  This has been a very hard year on myself and my husband.   I have found a few support grief groups in my area for parents and they have helped me alot.   Most of the people that attend have had children pass years ago.  There are a few of us that have just lost a child in the past year.  I enjoy going to the meetings as everyone there is in the same boat as I am.  We can cry on each others shoulders and understand how we are all feeling.  I too hope you find comfort in this group.

Dear muddeez!

Thank you for a nice message!I had no chance for getting a support in such group youre talking about.I was going to work every day to do not think about myself suffering too much,otherwise dont know how I had been surviving at all,but finally Ive found a site like this where I can be sharing with others understanding what Ive been going through by now.After the sudden painful loss of my beloved man Jan Ive got only 3 best friends and good job without any family that would help me,so I must stay strong because of my beloved man Jan waiting for me in heaven.You can read my story on the site to know better and if youd like too share,Im here for you.

Hug you from the heart!

Janka

Welcome to our Webhealing Family. I'm sorry to read your precious son has died. The days and weeks leading up to their angel date or birthday are very difficult and know that we're here for you. We all understand the pain of child loss. I'm glad you have found support groups as it is very important to be with others who truly understand how life changing losing a child is.

Feel free to share your story on the Child Loss board as we would all like to get to know you and your precious son and the joy he brought into your life. You can also post his dates on the thread Birthdays and Angel Dates and I will post them so he will be honored on his special day. Sharing stories about them is the way we honor them as it keeps them alive - not only in our hearts but in the hearts of others.

Hugs & love,
Terry

Dear muddeez!

Ive been trying to get my feelings out everytime I write a poem to my beloved man Jan dedicated from the bottom of my heart.I found a place here I can say a few words for my beloved deceased,so I created my Memorial book dedicated to my beloved Jan.I can recommend it to you and also everyone who is suffering and wants to do something for his beloved deceased person hes thinking of for keeping the memories of beloved one alive forever.If youd like I can give you some informations about to make you feel better.Some things don't ever go back to where they were and on top of all the pain leaves scars.
Its so difficult to understand why such things happen,especially when all the bad people are staying alive to hurt the others and the good people are dying to be separated from their loved ones.Since my sudden painful loss Ive bought 6 books writing by Raymond Moody and another one from Jeffrey Long which Ive been finding a comfort,hope and proof in to be with my beloved man Jan going on forever till eternity that Ive always known,but its good to read the stories of the people theyve met their loved ones after death.If youd like to read them,I can recommend you for example The evidence of the afterlife by Jeffrey Long and Paul Perry from 2010.Its up to you to decide on your own.

Anyway Im here for you if you only want to find a close person to talk about to find an understanding and a support as well as I need too.

Hugs from Janka

Hi,  My name is Lisa. I am new here too. My beautiful son died unexpectedly December 7, 2014. I am to dreading the one year mark.  Tyler's birthday is Sept 26, he would have been 26. I am not looking forward to that date either. I am so sorry to all of you who have lost a loved one. My heart and prayers go out to you. The heart ache of losing someone you love is more that i can bear at times. It's been good for me to read all your stories, now I know I am not alone, that there are people who feel exactly what I am feeling.  there are no grief support groups here.

I am from Clearfield, Utah. About 30 miles north of Salt Lake City.

Hello,
My name is Donna. I lost my one and only... a son, one day after his 28th birthday to a massive heart attack on May 31st, 2013. He was my best friend. I am lost and having a hard time finding myself without him at my side.

He was a talented musician, playing drums and guitar. He was a magician with a camera and video. His laughter was contagious and his spirit an aura all could see and feel.

I miss him. I weep for me, knowing he is free and me left behind.

I would like to post a picture of my Angel, but I have no idea how?

Hi - I'm Johan and I live in Montreal, Canada.  My tagline is johmac. I don't have any pictures for now but there are a few people who have died that I'd like to mention in order of their sad deaths.  My father aged 46, my niece 10 weeks, my mother 64 and most recently my brother in law aged 63.  I think Terry is a truly wonderful moderator.  I hope to get to know some of you, although it's a sad place to have to come, there are truly kind people.
Blessings

Hi Eagle eyes. Welcome to webhealing and I'm sorry about the loss of your son Tynan. It can take a while to accept the loss of a loved one. It's a life changing event and one of the hardest things is accepting our loss. It's a slow process and it's not like you can just hit a switch or turn a valve and it happen. For most of us we have to learn how to live a new life.

Hi!
I am Donna. I am from Tennessee. I just found this forum and I know I will find it helpful. Later I will post a picture. I lost my 22 year old daughter after she gave birth 26 days later. The baby is doing great. But I am not doing so well. I am moving into another house in the same city. But to tell you the truth I am angry. I ask why and I want to shake my finger at the Drs . Why she was 22 and healthy. But anyway I am happy to be here. I have been looking for a place to share and hopefully help others through my loss. Thank you
