Bereaved Parents

Post by Casey »

    • 1hairdoc@comcast.net Hello everyone, I am a bereaved parent. My son Richie was murdered, he was 23 yrs. old. He was beaten, and choked to death. I am looking for other parents that have lost a child. There is no greater loss than that of your child. It is a life sentence of horrible pain, When my son died a large part of me died with him. I feel like I'm just existing. How do we go on living, when our reason for living was our child? I have a wonderful family, husband, son, sisters, etc. They just can't understand how I feel. Unfortunately, the only person that understands, is another bereaved parent. Let me say, that I am so very sorry for your loss. If you need someone who understands what you're going thru, Please feel free to contact me at my e-mail address, feeling your heartbreak, KAREN

My thoughts are with you. My brother passed way in 1988 and I still think my mother mourns his death so very deep....Find the right people to talk to you - becuase I think too - no one knws what you feel unless they have been there too......My thoughts- again are with you....:-4

I am so sorry to hear of your loss and your saddness. As a mother, my heart is breaking for you. I lost my second born who died from premature birth which is not the same as the 23 yrs you spent with your son. I can't imagine your pain. But I truly believe your son is with you each day in spirit. Each and every day let him in.....don't brush certain things off as "coincidence". He REALLY IS THERE!!

I am so sorry to hear of your loss,

I also recently lost a nefiew, 24 year old, he was sick and hung himself.

I know it is hard to loose someone, i lost both my parents and my sister.

My way of looking at things has made it much easier for me.

I beleive that we are all part of the Universal Conscience, and that our journey on this heart is to fulfill a task, once this is done, we go back to it, and when our conscience is ready, we do come back to experience something else.

Our kids are only lown to us, so they can achieve what they need to do.

I know it is hard to loose someone, but we should also be happy, because we have help them acheive their goal.

I will leave it at that for now.

I hope this helps a litte.

Claude.

I am french speaking by the way.

I lost my son on April 11, 2005 at the age of 26 to a car accident. I never knew the pain of losing a child would be so excruciating. I am just now able to read about understanding grief. As I write this my eyes are filled with tears. I have the most heartfealt sympathy for you! I think at times that my thoughts and emotions will never be right again. There is a group called Compassionate Friends for bereaved parents and siblings, and I think that is national. I have not been able to attend any of the myself, because I have not had the courage to go. I was online tonight looking for answers for my other children's grief. I have been so self absorbed with my grief that I have not made the efforts to help them as I feel I should have, I have asked them questions about their feelings, and how I can help, but they are reluctant to offer up any suggestions or even talk about their brother. I have had good friends that have listened to me over and over again, and I hope that you have the same. I will be glad to listen to you, for I do understand your pain, your guilt, your anger, your sadness, and your loss.
