Sibling Loss / Mother's Day thoughts of my sister
« on: May 08, 2009, 06:05:16 AM »
Several years ago my sister lost a lengthy battle with cancer and left behind two young sons :'( :'( :'(.  In the short time they had with their Mom she taught them so many things.  I see evidence of this in the men that they have become.  My sister would be so pround of them :).  I'm proud of her for making the most of the short time she had with her sons and I'm proud of my nephews for they way they honor their Mom's memory.

Hope everyone has an enjoyable Mother's day weekend

Main / Memories of Mom
« on: May 08, 2009, 05:47:07 AM »
I was thinking about Mother's Day and how much I miss my Mom.  I just wanted to share one of my best memories about her.  I hope others of you will share memories of your Moms too.

When I was small I was really into Barbie.  Thanks to my Mom I had the best and most unique Barbie wardrobe around.  My Mom was a talented sewer and she made everything for my dolls.  I had a white satin wedding dress with a detachable train complete with two lace veils to choose from. She even fashioned a small bouquet.  She made two matching bridesmaids dresses in red velvet for my other dolls.  What fun my friends and I had playing with those outfits!!!  My dolls even had bras and panties that my Mom crocheted.  My Mom would often make an outfit for me and then the same one for Barbie. My Barbie also had pierced ears, actually they were colored stick pins cut to size and pushed into Barbies head, OUCH!!!  I still have my Barbies and all the things that my Mom made for them over the years.  I wouldn't part with these items for any amount of money.

My list of wonderful memories of my Mom could go on and on forever, but I will stop with this one.  Hope everyone has a nice Mother's Day. For those of you who have lost your Mother I hope this post will help you recall some of your own special times with your Mother.  God Bless and take care.

Main / Need some opinions....please
« on: April 18, 2009, 07:55:46 AM »
Yesterday while reading my local paper I can across an ad promoting a murder/mystery dinner theater function at our local high school.  Having had my brother murdered a few years ago I find this type of entertainment a very poor choice for anyone let alone a high school fundraiser.   On Monday I plan to contact the unit superintendent, the high school principal, and several board members about this poor choice of entertainment.  What makes this even sadder is that, somewhere around 1968 the town cop/school bus driver was murdered on the school grounds.  I know that I am very sensitive to anything involving murder.  I posted about this yesterday on a murder support board and of course most people found it very offensive.  Am I being overly sensitive about this or is it as inappropriate as I feel it is?  I would like a few opinions before I contact the school.

Child Loss / To all who have lost....
« on: June 26, 2007, 06:53:11 AM »
To all of you who have lost a child, my heart goes out to you.  I watched as my parents mourned the loss of my sister who passed away from cancer.  I felt very helpless as they suffered through their grief.  Six months after my mom passed away, my brother was murdered and I saw the anguish that my dad had to suffer through again.  No parent should ever have to loose one child let alone two children.  My thought and prayers all with all of you and your families as you cope with the loss of you loved ones.

Sibling Loss / Is this strange???
« on: May 15, 2007, 06:59:49 AM »
Is this strange or is this just me being paranoid?  I recently went to my local Walmart to get groceries, this is a Walmart that isn't close to where my brother's murderer (who is now free after serving only 6 of his 15 year sentence) and his family live.  I won't go anywhere near that town by myself.  I am in Walmart getting the things that I need and look up to see the murderer's mother, needless to say I am shocked to see her and do a double take to make sure it's her.  It is and of couse I get a nervous and shakey, but I've got stuff to do and I'm sick and tired of the negative effect they have on my daily routine, so I decide to suck it up and finish my shopping. Eaiser said than done.  I try to go about my usual routine, going up and down each aisle.  I find it rather strange that the killers mom stayed at my pace at the outside row of every aisle, but never actually goes down any of the aisles.  Finally I got very upset and felt like I could have a panic attack right in the frozen food section, so I called my best friend on my cell phone.  The killers mom stopped and watched while I was in the frozen food section.  I finally just gave up and went to the check out and got out of the store.  While I was loading everything in my vehicle, she walked  by in the next parking row.  She really didn't do anything wrong, so why did this shake me up so badly? 
Thanks for listening, I just needed to grumble about this to someone, without being told that it was nothing and that I shouldn't get upset about these things.

Sibling Loss / My brother's murder
« on: February 19, 2007, 03:19:13 PM »
Seven years ago was the worst day of my life.  My brother was murdered.  I have so many emotions rolling around in my head, I feel like I may just explode.  Every anniversary of his death is hard, but this one is harder than most.  His killer only got a 15 year sentence and he was released early from prison, he only served 6  of his 15 years.  It is so UNFAIR that he gets to go on with his life, when he has taken a life.  Not to mention what he has put our family through and what we continue to go through.  Thanks for letting me vent..........needless to say I'm not having a good day.
