So so sorry for your loss. My angel grew her wings at 1 1/2 days old in 2015 and it still feels like yesterday. I couldnt imagine losing two 🙁 big hug and lots of prayers sent your way. Just know your angels are watching down on you and their siblings/family.
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. Do you feel as if the pain is more tolerable now? It will be two years that our son has been gone.
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!
Her name was/is Daisy Emerson Myers. She was born at 28 weeks with a tumor on the inside of her neck. We had her for 2 weeks in the NNICU. This June will be one year. She was our first baby.
So sorry for you’re loss. My son was also 19
We lost our six-year-old Ellie in a terrible accident on January 20, 2012. My story is a bit long to share in a comment, but you can read it at http://www.elliesway.org/living.
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.

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.
Nichole, I remember. I lived in Loveland when that happened. Broke my heart. I hope you are finding some peace. XO
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 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.

Our whole family changed completely. The murderer just got 20 years. It happened three years ago and I still miss her like crazy! Its so damn hard …
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. Although I know without a doubt that she is with our Lord Jesus, and that I’ll see her again, my heart is broken and shattered.
I’m so sorry for your loss. We lost an adult son, and I know that is different. It’s minute by minute, you can’t see it now but the pain does ease. But it’s something that takes time, and will never go away completely. Praying for you.
