Child Loss / How tough are Angel anniversaries for you?
« on: March 18, 2008, 08:53:38 AM »
Hello All -

I am sorry I have not been here in a while.  (You have been in my thoughts and daily prayers however)

Going through a tough time right now.  Dante's angel date is tomorrow and I have been a wreck for weeks.  I had to leave work yesterday - it just got to be too much.

Do you have a tough time with your child's angel date?  Was the first one the hardest?  Any help or advice you could give would be very much appreciated. 

Peace to you all,

Marty - Dante's Dad

Child Loss / Blessed Angel and Birthday days to those I've missed.
« on: February 06, 2008, 07:55:20 AM »
I have not been here in  a while, so I wanted to say I hope those of you who have had birthdays or angel dates recently are doing OK.  I know those days are hard (as we all know) but you were in my thoughts and prayers. 

Been having a rough time of it lately.  Depression is a constant enemy - I fight it nearly every day.  The 1 year anniversary of Dante leaving us is coming up and each day that passes brings a more difficult battle.  I just have to survive - as we all do.

Peace to us all,

Marty - Dante's Dad

Child Loss / Do you dream?
« on: November 14, 2007, 09:25:48 AM »
Hello All -

I experienced my first dream of my son Dante the other night.  I have wanted to see him in a dream for a long time, but now that I have I have mixed emotions. 

In the dream my youngest child said out loud "Dante!" and we all looked to see him standing in the doorway.  As I got up to go to him he walked away - I could not catch him.  He went into our basement and disappeared.

Do you dream of your lost children?  Do they talk to you?  How do the dreams make you feel?

Just looking for some help in figuring out this next phase of my life.  With the holidays approaching (our first without Dante) I am feeling more depressed each day.  I wonder if the dream isn't part of this renewed sorrow.

Peace to us all,

Marty - Dante's Dad

Child Loss / My wish
« on: July 06, 2007, 07:44:20 AM »
I had to attend a funeral last night for a 34 year old.  Her poor parents - this was their second child lost.  The pain and suffering in their eyes - it brought back Dante's funeral and the pain of those days (I doubt I have ever left that pain). 

If I had one wish I would not bring Dante back - I believe he is in a place far better then this world.  I would wish that I could take all of our pain away.  I see so much hurt, sadness and sorrow here.  I see in everyone what I see in the mirror every morning. 

I am so sorry that we all have to go through this. 

Sending hugs to every grieving parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, brother, sister and friend here.

Child Loss / Tips for me?
« on: April 20, 2007, 02:28:57 PM »
Do you have any tips for me?  My grief counselor said I have sorrow all over my face.  I feel like the rest of my life is a prison sentence.  One of my biggest fears is living a very long life - delaying the time until I am reunited with Dante. 

I am embracing my grief but I am having trouble concentrating, sleeping, eating, and everything else.  I am reading anything I can get my hands on, and I am coming here often.  I just don't know what to do.

Any tips would be very much appreciated. 

Thank you all.
