19 years ago my 3 year old Brenton, died in my arms, I was 22 then. He was born prematurely, only 1# 5 oz. His first nibe months of his life was in the hospital. But he finally came home, with oxygen, and a feeding tube. He ended up getting the flu in 1997, where he was on life support, but even then, his heart was slowing down. I held him, in my arms as his heart slowly stopped. Then again March 2012, my third child Jessica Rae, age 7, took her last breath in my arms. She had a… Read more »

My Stephen was 16 years old when he died in a car accident on his way from school. He was an energetic, joyful, ornery, stubborn teenage boy. On April 1 it will be 8 years he has been gone. I miss him so much

Our daughter was also 16 when she passed away unexpectedly from a stomach virus three years and eight months ago. I understand how you miss your son so very much. We miss our daughter every day. We are grateful for Gods carrying grace since our Savannah went to glory. I pray you will continue to know Gods carrying grace my friend.

I’m sorry for your loss! Losing a child is so difficult. I also lost my daughter Allie due to a car wreck 18 months ago. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about her. This has left me feeling lost and empty inside. I understand your pain because I miss her too.

I am so sorry for your loss. Stephen sounds as though he was a joy! My family and I often heard the words, “He’s in a better place” when my grandson, Cameron, suddenly passed away on November 8, 2008…. I hate those words to this day! I eventually answered, “no, I disagree because the better place is in the loving arms of his parents and family”. I still believe he should be here. My thoughts and love are being sent to you and yours. Stay strong, Stephanni!

Rebekah was my third child (of five) and my only daughter. She was a surprise. We were planning more children but were going to wait. Of course, we got excited and had fun getting ready for her arrival. The boys were happy about a new baby–especially my oldest. I don’t know what happened. They didn’t find anything wrong with our precious little girl. Her heart just stopped beating. She was born a week later. I still wonder what she would be like. Would she be married, have children? What would she look like? My husband was my rock. I don’t… Read more »

My son Carter was such a blessing. We had tried for almost 2 years and we weren’t able to conceive. I remember taking a test at work in the bathroom, and the joy I felt knowing that I was finally going to get what I wanted so badly. He was so adorable when he was born, looked just like his dad. For the 5 months he was with us, he played, laughed, cried, got hugged on by his older brother. He never liked to sleep much though. He had such a personality to be so young. I miss him so… Read more »

I lost my son Adam, age 19, in a tragic house fire while he was at a friend’s house. His friend’s 23 year old brother fell asleep with a lit candle on his bed and woke some time later to smoke and flames. There was no battery in the only smoke detector in the house, located 15 feet from where my son was sleeping. Adam became entrapped in an upstairs bedroom. By the time the fire fighters arrived on scene the smoke and heat were so intense that rescue became impossible. My son’s body wasn’t recovered until after the fire… Read more »

My son was devastated over a failed relationship. There was no one else for him, he said. No options except to get her back. It didn’t happen and he couldn’t handle it with everything else he was going through. He was depressed for a year before he died by suicide in November 2014. He was exactly 24 1/2.

I lost my brother Zachry in a drowning in 1983. He was 5 years old. I said I was naming my first son after him. And I did. My Zachary was born on December 20, 1986. The love of my life!!! Fast forward…. My son Zac was on his way to pick up his paycheck. It was January 19, 2015. Five miles away from home he just went off the road on a curve. I’ll never know what caused him to leave the road but he held on to his precious Harley until the end. At some point, the Harley… Read more »

February 25th, 2007, Lawson Miles Walz made his way into this world. He was our unplanned surprise, but what joy he brought to our family in his 6 short years. His sister was 10 years old and liked to mother him. His brother was 5 &1/2 years older and Lawson wanted to do ANYTHING his older brother was doing. Lawson was a cuddler, (which I miss the most) and a smiler, therefore his nickname became Lawson Smiles (instead of Miles). Ask anyone that knew him, and the first thing they would tell you about him was his constant and contagious… Read more »

She was out Halloween night and made the wrong choice. She got in her car w/o wearing her seatbelt. Passed out flipped her car, she broke her neck and severe left head trauma. I got the “Call” at 5:30 am from her dad and step mom. All I could do is scream “No, not my baby”. I miss her so much.

I lost my precious “baby girl” Ashley 2 yrs ago. She was 24yrs young. She aspirated on some food causing her to go into respiratory arrest leading into cardiac arrest. She was revived 2 times with both of them being long periods of time her brain being oxygen deprived. Her father and I had to make the HARDEST decision of our lives! We had to make the choice whether she continue to live on life support with no chance that she would ever walk, talk or smile again or to remove her off life support and allow God to take… Read more »

My daughter Skyler passed away at 1 1/2 days old on January 6, 2015. She has a fatal type of dwarfism known as thanatophoric dwarfism. It is rare but fatal. There has been not much research and sadly no cure. I have already won a necklace but if I was chosen id love to give it to my friend Jessica who lost her daughter Emmalee in late 2015 due to CHF. She is still having a very hard time currently and I think this would bring her some comfort as my necklace is the most precious gift I received and… Read more »

My only girl.
My daughter, Torry, passed away last year February 9,2015 after her brothers birthday’s ( my oldest on 2-7 and the youngest 2-8).
She was hit by a train in our small town. She touched so many lives in her short time on earth. She volunteer for everything. She definitely kept me on the run. I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful daughter. I miss her so much.

My son Tyler was 17 when he left us on Sept 23,2015. He battled a life long illness but was doing very well. I was extremely blessed to be able to spend Tuesday with him, laughing and joking around as usual. Then I went to wake him up Wednesday for school and my nightmare began. I didn’t get to say goodbye. I wasnt there holding his hand when he left us. He was just gone in his sleep suddenly and not knowing why. His outgoing personality, laughter, caring person is missed beyond words. We’re left with a heartache so unimaginable.… Read more »

My Mom had end stage COPD and even though we knew the end was sooner than later, it was such a shock, then a little over two yrs later, we find my Father passed unexpectedly. He grieved so badly for her until he joined her. Now, as crazy as it seems, I feel almost like an orphen. I realize it is the natural order to lose our parents but it hurts so badly and I am so sad! I know they are in a better place than we are, but it’s just missing the little daily rituals that I miss!

My beautiful Amanda passed to Heaven due to a fatal car accident on May 18th just six days before her 31st birthday, As we approach the 11th month of missing her, I find I am really struggling. I often am filled with anxiety for my two living children. Our oldest daughter Nicole has Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia and our son Joshua lives three hours away. I pray for peace and a sense of calm each day but some days are hard. I worry about who will care for my daughter if biopsies I am having done show cancer. Our family has… Read more »

My husband passed away October 7,2014 and it happened so quickly. I feel like I still don’t know why he had to leave me. We were together over 30 years and married 28 years at the time of his death. While reading your individual post my heart is broken for those of you that have lost their child. I lost 2 babies due to miscarriage some years ago and went into a dark depression. I kept telling myself that God knows best and with his help I made it through that journey. Now is different for me. My husband was… Read more »

My son, Andrew had just turned 16 on 12/10/94. He had no known health problems, other than ADHD. I dropped him off at school on Wednesday, 2/2/11 and he went into sudden cardiac arrest at around 11:18 that morning. The nurse did not use an AED and by the time the paramedics arrived at the school, it was too late to make any attempts to save his life, although they tried! The medical examiner determined that Andrew passed away from Sinoatrial Nodal Artery Dysplasia. a rare heart defect that unfortunately they know not too much about. It may be genetic.… Read more »

My son Mitchel just turned 21 when he drowned after celebrating our daughter’s wedding. We were all together prior, the last time I saw him was running toward the woods. We were informed two days later that his body had been found, after two days or searching with family and friends.
It has almost been two years and I have times when I feel like I cannot breathe and my chest is so tight.
I miss him so much and this is a nightmare. We were celebrating with him one moment the next he is gone forever.

I lost five children with my first wife. First, we lost twins during a troubled pregnancy that ended in a still birth while I was away in basic military training. That seemed overwhelming at the time, especially since we tried so hard with strict bed rest, etc, to get them through to their delivery date. The world never knew Miranda Lynn or William Edward. Later, I lost our three children to parental alienation. Our story is included in Amy Baker’s 2014 book, “Surviving Parental Alienation; A Journey of Hope and Healing.” I have come to the conclusion that I finally… Read more »

July 15,2013 my precious 6 yr old son passed away from aggressive brain cancer…. My heart is so broken, then 10 days ago, just 10 days after the angelversary of our beautiful boy, 2 weeks before his birthday…. My 42 yr old husband died suddenly of a heart attack.

My son is living. At 14 he was in a horrific atv accident. The results are a traumatic brain injury and multiple strokes. He is left with a g tube. Quadriplegic. Blind in at least one eye. He can’t speak. The only emotion he is capable of is fear and pain that can’t be consoled. I grieve for the son I lost that day. I grieve for this child that I’m unfamiliar with that is trapped inside a broken body. I struggle with unbelievable guilt. I allowed the surgeons to do horrific things to keep him here with me.

I lost my 24 year old son on December 11,2015. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of him & shed a tear. He has a daughter who will be 2 on December 17,2016.

My oldest son Will was born with congenital heart defects, he endured 5 heart surgeries before the age of 5. He did well for about 6 years and started retaining fluid. It was discovered that his liver could not keep up with the increased demand on it. It was decided that they would allow him to finish high school and then do a heart transplant to aleviate the demand on his liver. And to try to control the symptoms with medication. In his junior year of high school he became sick, I took him to the Dr and they said… Read more »

A year ago last June, my best friend of 31 years died suddenly and unexpectedly of a brain aneurysm. She was the other half of me, and I’ve never had another friend so close or who knew me, understood me and loved me so much.

I lost my 22 year old daughter on January 11, 2011. It will be 6 six years next week, and I am still, in certain respects, just like it happened yesterday. She was going to the doctor and called me to see if I could take her because it was a very bad snowy, icy day. I said no because our 4 year old was napping. So I told her to either go to the doctor now & study or come home, which I have much guilt for telling her that. She decided to come home and cancel her appointment.… Read more »
