Child Loss / Happy 21st Birthday Traci
« on: August 24, 2007, 10:22:56 PM »
Today is Traci's 21st Birthday.  I hate that she is not here to celebrate this milestone in her life.

This afternoon I will be releasing some balloons for her, and I hope they climb as high as they can and reach her in heaven.

We should be celebrating by going out singing karokee.  It's Raining Men was the song we always sang and that's what we would've sang.

I miss you Traci...Happy Heavenly Birthday, Love Mom

Child Loss / I met John and Bernice today!

Today I had the pleasure of meeting Danielle's parents, John and Bernice!  They are visiting AZ for the week and we got to meet and have a little visit.

We both got to talk about missing our precious daughters and all the things that go with being bereaved parents.  They were great and it was so nice to meet John, and I told him how much his postings have helped me.  I will be seeing them again this coming Friday and then they are heading home.

Our daughters both had the quality of loving kids, and I found that comforting when we were talking.

Here is a picture of the 3 of us:

Child Loss / Thank you my Friends...

Wednesday wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it was going to be.  Of course I did so much crying leading up to that day, that is probably why.

My sister Peggy had sent me a box in the mail, and when I opened it, I bawled my eyes out.  Well, not right away, because my son was standing there, and he just doesn't get it when I cry, so I waited until he left.  My sister had made a hardcover book with all these pictures of Traci throughout the years.  It is the most awesome present.  She had it done at    She also used the poem that a girl at my work had wrote for me after Traci passed.  I wish I could show you this awesome book, I just know you would want one of your child too.

I visited the Angel of Hope on Wednesday afternoon with my sister in law who also lost her son Joey in a car accident.  It was very peaceful and a very beautiful day here in Phoenix, and I felt Traci and Joey with us when the breeze was blowing.

Thanks for the nice comments and visiting Traci's website and lighting a candle in her memory, that meant so much to me.

Here is the poem:

A Tribute to a Mother

Have you ever seen the face
of a mother whos heart has
been torn in two?

Laughter sledom can be heard.
Pain embedded in her eyes.
If you listen closely you can
hear her whimpering each night.

Have you ever felt the hands
of a mother longing to hold her child.
Her body numb from all emotion
yet she still tries to smile.

Sorrow has overcome her
yet she fights to survive
her passion keeps her strong
she feels her daughter by her side

I can't help but tell you
that I wish I could take your pain away.
thoughts and prayers surround you
each and every day.

You are loved and respected
by so many people in deed
never will you have to worry
never will you have to need

Hugs, Maureen - Traci's Mom

Child Loss / Missing Traci - 2 years
« on: March 06, 2007, 07:37:12 PM »
Not sure, but the first time I tried to post this it got lost?

Tomorrow will be 2 years since Traci's car accident.  Still finding it very unbelievable that 2 years have gone by since I have talked and laughed with my daughter.  I miss her and wish I could see what she would be doing right now.  She would be 21 this year, which is really hard to believe also.

Please visit Traci's site, I have added many many pictures to it recently.

Hugs, Maureen, Traci's Mom

Child Loss / Grease is the Word
« on: January 24, 2007, 05:54:53 PM »
Hi Everyone,

I just feel like talking tonight.

I have been watching the new show Grease and I find myself wanting to talk to my daughter about it.  Grease was our favorite movie.  I can't tell you how many times I watched it with my daughter.  We would sing so was so fun.  I know she would've loved to watch this new show where the people are trying out for the Grease Broadway show.  She loved theatre and dance and I actually catch myself thinking I can just call her up and talk about this show.

I am missing her more and more, it is so hard sometimes.

The other night I watched a tape that she had made me for Mother's Day when she was in 8th grade.  She took all these pictures of herself and the rest of our immediate family and put to music.  Of course the music she picked were all songs from Grease.  It made me cry, but oh so glad that she had made that for me, and at the end of it, it said "Happy Mother's Day Mommy, I love you".  God, I just miss her and I wonder what she would be doing right now.  I can't believe she would be 21 this year.  I hate this, I hate this.  My son will be turning 18 in June and that will be so weird, since that is the age Traci was when she died.

I don't cry as much as I used to, but for some reason today isn't a good day.

Thanks for listening.

Hugs for all our children,
