Child Loss / Remembering Our Children ~ Video
« on: July 22, 2012, 03:36:29 PM »
Hello all !
It has been such a long time since I've been here on webhealing, I feel like I am 'coming home'.
You all have always been such a part of my heart, no matter how long I was away.

Some of you parents that were here years ago might remember the video I made of your children.  Today I uploaded it to YouTube if anyone is interested in seeing it again.

It was so good to see these faces again when I viewed the video today, I had to share it again with all of you.  Sweet, sweet faces.  Prayers and love to all...the journey of grief is a hard one, but there is much treasures to be found along the way  To all my 'treasured friends'... I love you all.

Karen (Eric's Mom)
I visited the memorial web site~ so very touching.

You mentioned on a post in the Intro Children area that you wanted a picture of Eric on that thread.
I thought I post your beautiful son here.....for you. 
You may PM me if you would like further assistance to post more pictures.

Child Loss / Every Minute That I Breathe ***Christian Lyrics***
« on: November 20, 2009, 09:46:44 AM »
I found this song yesterday…. Jana wrote this (sings it herself) after she lost her daughter.  I thought those of you who share the same Christian belief might like to hear it.  My prayer is that her words will minister to you during these difficult upcoming holidays.

Click on blue title and it should bring up Media Player with the song.

Every Minute That I Breathe
by Jana Alayra

Photos on the mantle I won’t change
For they still remind me of a day
You filled our hearts with laughter and your smile
How we loved you, for a while
The day came in the blinking of an eye
When suddenly we had to say goodbye
As you were soaring homeward through the blue
Part of me went right along with you

Every time I hear you in my mind
Though my heart weeps, my soul takes flight to the place
Where you are, somewhere far beyond the farthest star
Now every minute that I breathe, you live what I believe

You gave me so much more than joy
In you I saw a reason for each morn
In a world unwinding as it spun,
Holding you would make me still again
Many say your days with us were too few
But they were numbered by the Lord for you
A message of your life remains through time
Jesus gave you everlasting life

Every time I hear you in my mind
Though my heart weeps, my soul takes flight to the place
Where you are, somewhere far beyond the farthest star
Every time I see you dancing through my mind
Though I long to hold you, my soul takes flight to the place
Where you live, to watch you sing and dance what would I give
Now every minute that I breathe, you live what I believe

One day I will see Jesus come for me
No one knows the hour He will come
I will fall at His feet for all He’s done for me
Then straight into your arms I’ll run

Every time I hear you in my mind
Though my heart weeps, my soul takes flight to the place
Where you are, somewhere far beyond the farthest star
Every time I see you dancing through my mind
Though I long to hold you, my soul takes flight to the place
Where you live, to watch you sing and dance what would I give
Now every minute that I breathe
Every minute that I breathe
Every minute that I breathe
You live what I believe
You live what I believe

If anyone attempted to enter chat and was not able to get in....it is broken.
Here is a note I got from Tom:

"Things went haywire yesterday and the board crashed.  The chat was also a casualty.  I will do what I can to resurrect it but it will likely not get done till the weekend.  Sorry for the delay."
Tom


Hang on folks...help is on its way!
If anyone has a urgent need to chat, please PM me so I can make special arrangements for you.

Grief not related to deaths / Re: I want to die
« on: November 01, 2009, 03:28:57 AM »
Kathryn~

When someone is in so much pain, it is impossible to look beyond the pain to see what is on the other side of it.
So don't come down on yourself for not being able to get through this without some help or some time.
The pain tells you that this is how life will be for  you forever, but it is a LIE.
What ever the reason is that lead you to this despair...I want you to know there is Hope.

Just know that the way things might be today....will not be the way they are in your tomorrows.
YOU matter...... you have a purpose and that is why you are here.....and if you leave it....you will short change us all of your presence and your being and what you are here for.
Because of that, I selfishly ask you to talk to me before you give up.

If you want to talk or cry with someone...my shoulders are here for you.

I sent you a PM (personal message)...
Look to the top right of this web page where it says :
     Hey, KatherynAnne, you have 1 messages, 1 are new.
Then just click on your blue word 'messages' and it will bring you to your messages.

Hang on Kathryn...

Child Loss / Dominic - Son of KerryP ~ New member
« on: September 28, 2009, 04:34:49 PM »
I moved this post from the "Introduce our Children" thread as Kerry is a new member and I didn't want her post to be over looked.  She had posted this a few days ago.  I know you all will give her the support and love you are known for.  Kerry, if you go back to where you posted the original, I answered you how to do pictures.  Please check your Private Mail/messages.

I'm so sorry for everyone's loss, and I'm so sorry that I am here.

I lost my 7 year old son Dominic one week ago today.  He had a life-long heart condition that we'd been treating well with medication, and most of his life he was able to be active and fun loving.  Despite health problems he had a very full life.

But after a week in the ICU with a fever of 105 and other symptoms, Dominic's heart suddenly and unexpectedly gave up and he couldn't be revived.  He is my only son, and I'm devastated.  We haven't had his funeral yet, as they had to do an autopsy on him to determine cause of death.  I don't know where to turn.

Kerrie, Dominic's mum.

Can someone help me post a photo of him please?

Grief not related to deaths / Re: Loss of self
« on: September 28, 2009, 04:21:22 PM »
Hi John~
How frustrating that must be for you to struggle with things we take for granted.
Here is a suggestion for you:

When you want to post, type it in WORD or what letter software you might have.  There is NO time limit for that as you will not be logged on to webhealing.  Then you can log on and cut and paste it in to your post...
This way you will not be using up your time.

I  hope this will work for you.  I look forward to reading about you.
Welcome to our board, let us know if you need any other help, just ask us.

Main / Re: Our Kevin has died
« on: September 24, 2009, 07:29:00 AM »
For anyone who would like to read about Kevin's dear wife Betty here is her Obituary:


Betty Sue Kloubec
(December 6, 1942 - February 14, 2008)


Click on blue to read

Many of us had the privileged to walk and cry tears along with Kevin through some of his hardest moments of his journey.  He grieved with dignity for the wife he loved so much.  I would like to honor his memory by remembering his precious Betty as well.  Kevin exchanged his tears of grief for the one he missed so desperately, for tears of joy in a twinkling of an eye when he left this place.

I lift my glass to make a toast to you both:  No more sorrow, no more pain...together always and never to be separated again !  Cheers !!!!

It is odd how somewhere in my mind I came to a place thinking that as long as we are in Webhealing dealing with the death of our loved ones, we were 'safe' here.  You know, since we have to deal with the pain of our loved one being gone, we had our share of pain, so death shouldn't bother us anymore.  So very sad and shocking when death snatches another one from us.  


I met Kevin shortly after he lost his beloved Betty.  He was a regular in the chat room with a hand full of us that recently found this site.  There were many times he would leave the chat room open on his work computer just so no one would have enter a empty room.  In his healthier days, he was "always around" and I think it was easy to take that for granted that Kevin would always be there for us.

May you rest in peace Kevin.  You served mankind well with your love and caring.  

Here is his obituary and a place where you can send condolences to his family and friends.  We might post here what Kevin meant to us, but his family and friends will not see it.  We all should let them know how he impacted our lives here in webhealing.

Hello all~
I miss you guys so much!  You are always in my thoughts and prayers.  I just cant even imagine the daily struggles when your heart becomes as fragile as rice paper after loosing a child.  Death makes the pain become a prisoner within the body.  Trapped, it cant get out....and it is a life sentence.  To read your struggles and how you all go on...is truly and inspiration!

Paula, if you find it difficult to do these things, please PM me and I can take care of it for you.
If you want his dates on a picture, I can make something special for Adam.  What ever you need Paula, just ask.
I went ahead and put Adams dates on the calender for you since you couldn't find the 'post event' button  ;D

Terry...bless your heart for trying so hard to find the 'POST EVENT' button.  It puzzles me why you don't have one.  I guess you are too 'special'  ;D  When you click on on the upper tool bar when logged on, on the bottom of the calendar page where the date is, I have on each side!  Go figure.

Love you all,
grainofsand
