Hi Mary!

I have lost 3 children and when someone asks me how many children I have, I tell them 3. But, they are now in heaven.

I will never deny their existence.  Most people do not know what to say and that's Ok, too but I have to speak from my heart.

Good question as we've all been faced with this!

Much love,
Terry

Hi Mary ~ good to see you post.

I say, I have two brothers, but one passed away. 

Hope you are well....

Lately I have been seeing Mark when people drive by in their cars.  They seem to look like him and then I think it can't be him because he is gone.  Does anyone else see people who remind them of there lost love one

Ditto --  I had only one brother, David, and a step-brother whom I don't acknowledge.  When people ask me, I say I have two sisters and my baby brother who was killed.  You should never not acknowledge a sibling that you loved so much.   Take care, I know some of what you are going through.  Love and prayers.
