Dear Annette and Jennifer
My prayers are with you. My sister was 10yrs old when she died in my arms due to a tumor. I was 16 and this happened 10yrs ago. I know its different then losing a child. When I gave birth to my son I cried because I felt so bad for my parents having to lose their child. Being a mother I don't know how my parents had the strength to carry on. I lost my faith in god and I was angry as well. It's not fair! An innocent little happy soul had to leave us, while there are so many evil people that get to live. Maybe you can both relate to that?
I was angry with god. I stopped believing.
1month ago I have started believing again. I pray to god and ask him to help me. I don't know if you are both religious? But I would want you both to know...you are not alone! My sister,your daughter,your son...they are in a better place. And I am sure we all think they would want to see us happy. God has a plan for all of us..there are so many things we don't understand but god knows his plans. We should try to trust him.
I hope this post helps in anyway. Even if its just a comfort that you both know I will be praying for your family's.
Before I started praying again I lit a candle every day for my sister. Today I will be lighting 3 candles in memory of our loved ones.
God bless and take care

Hi Jennifer , My prayers are with you. I respect your honesty about feeling angry & I identify with it. Things like this fit into such an unfair category.

I cremated my 22 year old son a few weeks ago. He drowned 15 years ago when he was seven which left him brain dead. I don't know if his passing was a blessing or more pain for me. I haven't felt anything but anger during those 15 years and I feel a different type of anger now.

I am glad to hear that you have a support group. Another thing that helps me when I have lost my loved ones is my religious background. When my husband and I were married we wern't just married for time. We were married for time and throughout eternity. My religous belief and faith is that I will be with all of my family once again. I can't imagine a complete joy in the next life if it didn't include all of those that I love. If you have a religious affiliation I would also rely on any support that is offered there. If not or if you don't feel a support there then you can always rely on God through prayer and meditation and even study of the scriptures. And of course you are welcome to reach out to me if you want. Happy to help or just be around if you need to chat. Your in my prayers, God Bless You!

I am so sorry I cannot even imagined losing a child. My Pastor and his wife lost their son when he was 3. I think that if you have a good home church that they are your best support other than your family. You are in my prayers.. God give you peace and comfort...

Annette, I am so sorry to hear news such as this. It is certainly hard to loose someone especially your own child. I extend my condolences. Do you have a husband or other children living with you? Do you have anyone that you are able to talk to daily? I would suggest saying close to a friend or family memeber for awhile.
