The Day After...my dearest friends in grief
« on: December 26, 2008, 11:50:57 AM »
We have now "survived" another family holiday without our precious child or children.

For those who have faced this "first" Christmas holiday or Hanukah season without your son or daughter, I know how difficult this was for you; it is a great and difficult hurdle you have overcome. I hope you found support and comfort to help you through. The endless tears, and questions of why and even the anger that you may be feeling are all part of this now “normal” part of being a grieving parent.

For those of my dear friends who have been on this board since I joined in 2006 and have been such a wonderful source of support and compassion for me, I want to thank you so very truly and deeply. As this holiday season approached, I just found myself reading and wanting to respond, but just did not know what to say. Funny, how some days, we can help everyone with just a kind phrase or simple word and some days, we can’t come out of our shell in order to help ourselves, never mind those who also need support.

Your precious children were all in my prayers this holiday season, I hope you were all surrounded with the love and support that you need and that you received wonderful signs from your precious sons and daughters, nieces and nephews or grandchildren who have died. Each and every one of you are always in my heart and prayers for continuous comfort and healing as we face the day to day challenges of the  toughest “journey” we are on.

With deepest compassion,
John-Daddy of Angel

Thinking of you and each and every one of us here...wishing it was all so different, knowing it never will be and hoping we can somehow, someway survive another year.Sending strength and peace to each of you.
