Main / Back again....
« on: November 22, 2011, 04:54:36 PM »
Does it ever end? My grandsons wife was killed in Afganistan. I am so sad and can't believe this is happening again. They have a two year old daughter. Please pray for her family and little Zoey. Hugs to all my friends......


Main / Hello to all my friends
« on: February 02, 2010, 09:27:25 AM »
I haven't been on here for a while, but I decided to write and let everyone know that it has been so tough these last couple of months. I joined a grief group. I have gone 3 times. I am still just talking to a counselor. I think it is helping but than I find days that are almost impossible, like today. My heart is broken. But you all have been where I am and some are new here. This site helped so much after my husband died. I thought if I came back after I lost my daughter it would help. Feel like I have let some of you down, because I never post. I hope all of you are getting better. How can you ever I wonder, but as one person(grain of sand) said just 1 step at a time. 1 breath, 1 more day without my Jerri Dawn. I miss her so much!! (((hugs))) to you all.


Child Loss / Happy heavenly birthday Jerri Dawn

Today would have been my daughters 39th birthday. And I am sending her a happy birthday. Thanks to all of you for being there for me. I really appreciate it so much. What a great group of people. I know we are all hurting because to lose a child is so hard as I have found out. I haven't been around much, but wanted you all to know I am thinking of you this holiday season. (((hugs))) to all and may we all find some peace.

Love, Donna

Main / My candle
« on: December 17, 2009, 04:33:40 PM »
Hi to all you great people. Tonight I have put a candle in my window for my sweet Jerri Dawn and my husband Jerry and for everyone on this site. I will let it shine every night. Seems this week is looming in front of me and I just feel like hiding, but know I can not do that. My anniversary on the 20th(42yrs), Jerri Dawns birthday on the 23rd. I know everyone here is having a hard time but if I could I would give each and everyone of you a hug and maybe I could get a hug back. Love, Donna

Child Loss / The Holidays
« on: October 25, 2009, 11:30:27 AM »
Hi all you good people, yesterday was 4 mos. since my daughter died and I find I am dreading the holidays so much. She loved Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Her birthday would have been Dec. 23rd. I am wondering if everyone has the same problem with the holidays. I haven't posted much lately, had the flu. I hope all of you are doing ok and I think of you often. A great bunch of people. Hugs and love to you all.


Child Loss / My daughter's new granddaughter
« on: August 26, 2009, 07:30:46 AM »
Hi to all you great people, I just had to let you know my daughter Jerri's first grandbaby was born on August the 24th. A little girl. Oh how I wish Jerri was here. I would give her such a hard time about being a grandma. She always told me I will never be called grandma. lol Well guess what Jerri you are a grandma now. I on one hand am so happy and thankful the baby is ok and healthy and on the other hand I set and cry and cry because Jerri will never get to meet her new granddaughter. And the baby will never get to know her sweet, wacky, loving, caring grandma (((Jerri))) My thoughts are with each and everyone of you. (((hugs))) Donna

Child Loss / What do you say??
« on: August 21, 2009, 05:54:02 AM »
Hi all you great people, I haven't been posting a lot. I do come on the site and read the post almost everyday. I am having such a hard time. Seems like it is getting harder and now I am thinking it has been almost 2 mos. since Jerri died. I just want each and everyone of you to know my heart goes out to you and your families for you loss. I have now joined you in this painful journey. I just wonder if this won't be my downfall. I was coming to terms with my husbands death and now I feel right back at the beginning.

I just had a question which has been bothering me lately. When people ask me how many kids do you have, I pause and I think I don't want to go through the story of my daughter dying. I have been saying I have two kids and I feel like a liar. I have three. I know this probably seems like a dumb question, but what do you say? I have two and one in heaven. Such a small thing but it really bothers me. The question I mean. I am hanging on though and thanks to all of you. I think of each of you everyday. ((Hugs)) Donna

Child Loss / My beautiful daughter is gone
« on: July 11, 2009, 03:46:27 PM »
Never thought I would be posting on the child loss board, but here I am. I have been posting on the main board as my husband died in 2007, now on June the 24th I lost my 38 year old daughter suddenly. She went into cardiac arrest and was declared brain dead on the 23rd and died on the 24th. My heart is broken and I have so much anger and pain inside. The if onlys are driving me crazy. I really have no one to talk to. No one understands how I  feel. I joined this website last year as my husband died of cancer and I made a lot of friends. I know everyone here is hurting. I just want to know does it ever end. I feel like I am just going quietly crazy. I hope everyone here finds some kind of peace. I just hope I get there. Will I ever?? Thanks it helps to get the feelings out.. Donna

Hi to all the great people on this site, thought I was moving on and took my name off the members list. Found I keep coming back, guess I still need this site. The support is so great. It has been almost 2 years since Jerry died and I still find myself in a bad place at times. So here I am. Don't know what I would do without this site and you great people. Thanks!! Donna
