I have a son that was born on July 25th and died August 25th.I am looking for ways to remember him
November 05, 2001
I read some of the comments made and would like to add mine. We lost our only son to Cancer when he was 19. But we lived with the knowledge he had cancer for 8 years. He had surgury at the age of 11 1/2 to remove cancerious tumor to his spine and ended up in a wheel chair. But our son, Jesse was one of the strongest, lovingest people I have ever known.. Even in his last few days his only worry was for his family and how sad we were going to be. It has been 9 years since we lost Jesse but he is in our hearts and thoughts each day. Yes the pain gets easier to bear and yes you can go on and laugh but don't ever stop talking about your child. For they were and ARE part of you always...

My youngest son, Justin Lynn Tharp, left us with so many fun and good memories. He would have been 20 on October 23. Even though he was 18 when he passed, he will always be "my angel baby". There is not a day that goes by that my heart doesn't hurt and I feel so empty inside. I have to keep reminding myself that he would not want me to be unhappy, that he would want me to go on with my life. I have to keep reminding myself that God has truly blessed my life with another son that is 23,a husband that is the greatest, a very supportive family, and the best of friends. I know that I am not to blame for the way Justin ended his life, with an accidental drug overdose. I get so tired of being strong but I know that is what Justin would have wanted. Justin and I had a really special bond and I will always miss his hugs and kisses. I know that he will always be with us and I can feel him but, it's not the same. Nor will it ever be. I know that we will be together again some! day and i am looking forward to that day.

I think you have done a beautiful job on this websight. I too have lost a child just 2 weeks ago, Aug. 25. My 14 year old son Shane in an auto accident. I'm so lost and don't understand. I'm in so much pain its hard to go on. My 16 year old son was driving and I know he will need me. I'm just in so much dispair.
September 07, 2001
I want to commend you on your web site for your daughter. we recently started one for our son Stephen. it's a way of keeping your child's memories alive and sharing his life with others. We lost our Stephen nine days before his seventeenth birthday (he and I share the same birthday, Feb. 7}, so that was the first milestone we had to face in the midst of all the pain we were suffering. We also lit a candle to celebrate his birthday. After that we decided to light a candle for all the holidays and special occasions. We also keep a candle in the window, that lights at night, in his memory. I think I can honestly say that I understand how your heart feels. Any communication is welcomed.

This is a nice web-site. I too have lost a child. He was 9 yrs old, he was killed on June 28,2001, when he was swinging on a hammock that was tied to two trees. One of the trees gave out, falling on and crushing him. I am still heartbroken, and hope to regain my life again, soon!

I was introduced to this web site while searching for more info on Lethal Multiple Pterygium Syndrome. My best friends baby passed away from complications of this disease. It opened a new door of reality in my life. Jessalynn opened my eyes and inspired me eventhough she was only physically with us for one day. She is always with me and is continually inspiring my life. Thank you for this web site...I will be sure to tell my friend about this and encourage her to tell her story.

I was very moved by this site. I lost my first child almost nine years ago. Parents of stillborns suffer also a great loss. Thank you for this chance to express my love and sorrow. It makes me want to celebrate the 15 hours Jose ANdres lived. He was real, he was here and took a piece of my heart. Thanks for this chance.

July 15, 2001
thank you for having this nice web site. I think of my murdered son as an angel. I am sorry for your loss. Angels are a nice thought!! Someone told me one time that our children are setting on clouds watching us survive. I find that thought comforting. I hope it helps someone else. Sincerely with love Judy Dodd

Just wanted to let you know that my prayers are with you during this time of year for you.
July 08, 2001
I believe when you lose a child, sometimes talking or writing about them helps. My oldest son, Justin passed away on April 29,2001. I was actually on the net searching for grief share program for his girlfriend that now lives in Colorado Springs Co. I was honored by God with 2 sons. My youngest son is Cody. http://nfdownes.homestead.com/nodow.html

Is there any way to help you ... continue the job your doing?
June 20, 2001
I had the pleasure of spending time with Meica Bristol at one point in my life. She was the most special person to ever come into my life and will remain in my heart forever. She taught me so much for such a young person and I thank her and the Bristol family for letting me get to know her.

This site is absolutely beautiful! I am so sorry for your loss and so touched by your determination to keep your daughters memory alive. I lost my 4-year-old brother to cancer in 1994 after a courageous 2 year battle. Since Kevin's death my family has worked hard to form an organization dedicated to the fight against childhood cancer. It is not for profit and run completely by volunteers. It began at my kitchen table in 1994 with six family members and has now grown to incorporate three other families who have also lost a child to cancer. We help families in need of emotional and financial support while fighting this tretcherous disease. I am very proud of my mom and dad for being able to keep Kevins memory alive and in doing so helping others. I would also like to thank you for helping others through their hard times and allowing me to know a little about your special angel.

I loved reading about the amazing hug you received after your daughter died. I wish I could have felt something like that, but all I felt was the finality of it. I know I will see my precious daughter again, but for now it is a long wait. (((HUGS))) http://heavenlylights1.homestead.com/meagan.html

This is a beautiful and moving web site. It is so reassuring to know that I am not the only parent out there who has ever experienced losing a child. My daughter, Allison, who was only 20 months old, passed away of Meningococcal Meningitis. She fought for eleven days after she was diagnosed with this. I at the time was only 19 years old. I still feel numb. I know now that no matter how many years go by, I never will forget that beautiful red hair, or that gorgeous smile , or those bright blue eyes. Allison made a lasting impression on everyone who's lives she graced. She was the center of my world, and when The Lord called her Home I never thought I would live to see the next day. My world fell completely apart. I truly believe that the only reason I am alive still today is due to the miraculous birth of my son Andrew, whom I was pregnant with when Allison died. He saved me from myself. Andrew is now 7 1/2 years old and my third little miracle,Christian, just had h! is third birthday. I truly have been blessed. I know I will one day take my seat next to my beautiful baby girl, but until then her life will continue to be glorified through myself and my two wonderful sons. For those of you who feel like life can't go on, it can and will, you just need to learn to convert your pain and hurt into love and compassion. I thank God every day for the time I had with Allison, and even more for blessing me with Andrew and Christian. Children are truly the most beautiful gifts from God that anyone could ever receive. Thank you so much for this beautiful website. God Bless

The loss of a child is immense. We understand we have lost.

Hi Annette. I was just checking out your site again to read the new wrtings and comments, and to build up the courage to submit Jacob's story. As you may remember, I am in the process of working on my dissertation research, which will be studying the grief process and search for meaning that parents go through following the loss of a baby through stillbirth or neonatal death. Reading the stories on your site and your 'Writings' has given me the renewed inspiration I needed to continue with my own writing. I hope that my research will prove to be worthy enough to be one of Jacob's legacies, just as your site so beautifully demonstrates one of Meica's many legacies. Thank you for this site - your courage and willingness to share your experiences with others is truly inspirational.

I was online for the first time tonight. I found your web site it is a wonderful thing you are doing to help parents like me THANK YOU and GOD BLESS , janelle My son died at the age of 2and a half 7yrs ago. I hope that you continue this wonderful web site.

I am truly sorry for your loss of your beautiful daughter Meica. That is a truly a name of a gift from heaven. I also have lost a daughter. Her name is Ciara she was only 3 years old. She was murdered by my brother in law. Her life was cut so short. I thank god everyday for the 3 years he blessed me with her. I just wish she was here now with me. I will never forgive him for taking the most important thing away from me. I know that our children are up in heaven with God right now and that they are free of any problems that could cause them pain. One day I know we will see our beautiful daughters again. Until then I get all my daily strength from her and I go on living for her. I love you Ciara. Mommy misses you so much.........
February 03, 2001
I'm so very sorry about the loss of your daughter, Meica. I don't know the pain of losing a child, but I understand the pain of losing a sibling all too well. I lost my 12 year old younger sister, Ashleigh in Oct., 1996. There will always be an empty space in my life and heart where her memory lives on. I will always miss her, everyday for the rest of my life. I believe that when we connect with someone here on Earth, that our loved ones in Heaven connect with each other also. (or the other way around, which could be why we meet certain people in the first place.) So I'm sure that Ashleigh and Meica are smiling down on both of our families from Heaven together. Take Care and Hugs, Sarah

My sister called me to let me know about this site. Here I thought I was the only one going through such pain. See, I too lost a child. On Jan. 10, 2001, I lost my daughter, Lauren(11), to respiratory failure. I feel as though my life as I knew it has ended; like I'm walking around in a fog or a very bad dream. If you know how I'm feeling and would like to talk, drop me a line. Lynn

I found this site kinda by accident.What a beautiful site. My little boy Ryan was born into heaven September 1,2000. There is not a day that goes by that he is not with my thoughts. He was so courageous and special. At the age of three he went through so much more than I have ever been. Ryan taught me so much about what really matters. He touched so many and he was always an angel. We miss him and we wonder how to go on without him. I know we will be togeather again.I have a special angel who watches over me. Love mommy.

On January 5, 2001 I gave birth to a precious baby girl. Her birth was a stillbirth. We named her Angel, and I truly believe that she was a messenger from our Heavenly Father. It's been two weeks and our family is trying to find ways to gain strength.If anyone would like to correspond, my address is 2463 Jasmine St.; New Orleans, Louisiana;70122. To anyone who's child is no longer alive on earth always remember that they will never pass away, in the heart! God bless you and God keep you! Love, Naima

I am a child/teen grief counselor with Mothers Against Drunk Driving and just stumbled across your site. I will definitely share this page with all the families that I am blessed to meet in such a time of sorrrow. Thank you so much for giving families an outlet to share their most precious loss.

Hi I am a mother from New Zealand who lost a most precious son to death on Valentines Day 2000. I just love what you have done here as I know that keeping our children alive through sites like this is to honor their memory. Maybe you would like to visit my sons site. http://www.geocities.com/kizmc I am so very sorry for your loss as I know the pain and hate the fact that others know it too. God bless.

I didn't even know this site existed until I met Edie the other night. I'm truely touched by what a wonderful relationship you had with your grandson. He is a very special person and so are all of you. Know that he is with you during the holidays and feels your pain. He is with you always but especially during the hard times. My prayers are with you. God needed a special angel and chose Justin. He is now watching over all of you. You are blessed.
December 13, 2000
Annette, this is a wonderful tribute to Meica and a safe, loving place for others to share their losses and feelings. God definitely put people (or I should say angels) on this earth to help and teach others and Meica was one of them. I am going to pass this site address on to someone I know who lost a 14 month old daughter a few years ago. You are a determined, thoughtful, creative and caring individual Annette, and I am proud to call you my cousin. Love and hugs to you, Bill, and Logan

What a beautiful tribute to all the "little" angels. I met a woman a few years ago that shared with me the loss of her teenage son to an accident. Her pain was so overwhelming that I cried all the way home. Later I wrote her a poem. I would like to share that here. May others take comfort from all our prayers. ... Jackie
Awash in Your Tears......
Our hearts they are with you
this you do know...
where that pain it stays
down deep in your soul
You speak of a hurt so foreign and hard
life as you knew it, can it ever go on?
Your beautiful son is an angel
a bit of joy that does give....
There’s a place in your heart
where your little boy lives
You must carry on...
God made you that way,
and with your special child
he’ll unite you someday
Your grief it stays with you
this we do know...
with our prayers we will help
mend the ache in your soul
December 06, 2000
Oh Annette! This is a beautiful site. I just cried when I read about your daughter and the others. I pray that I never have to experience that loss; although we have been very close to it. I am not sure I could bare it. This site must be a comfort to so many people. God Bless you.
November 28, 2000
I just happened to come across this site and so glad that I did. I too, have a very special angel, Noah, who left us the same day he was born on April 27, 2000. Not a day goes by that I do not think about him or talk or sing to him. I know he is in a special place and is being my guardian angel. I will never forget him and I am amazed to see that there are others out there who are in the same boat. At a time like this, you cannot help but to think that u are the only ones!! God Bless!!!
November 26, 2000
I had to stop out and sign your guestbook and thank you for this wonderful site. This is such a great way to remember the precious angels who went to Heaven so soon. My heart goes out to you on the loss of your daughter. Her story deeply touched my heart! She is so beautiful! My site is a memorial dedicated to children who have lost their battles here on earth and the need for better cures. I would be honored if you would like a star added in memory of your daughter. Each star on my site is linked to the childs website..so then everyone would come here and read her story...and be able to see you wonderful site. Some of the other families may want to post their childs legacy also. I just think this is such a wonderful idea. I am so glad I surfed in. If you would like to view my memorial it is at... http://heavenlylights.homestead.com/
November 26, 2000
I am just here checking the posting program. In the process I find myself reading what others have said. It is so moving to read others comments and I suspect even moreso for those of us who have been touched in a similar manner. The loss of our unborn grandson a year ago continues to be in our minds and we will wonder forever what could have been.

I just found your site and I find the tributes beautiful and compelling. I lost my wonderful 11-year-old son, Nichlas, 7 years ago to complications from a bone marrow transplant. Not a day goes by that I don't think about him and miss him. Today would have been his 19th birthday and I wonder what his life would be like if he had lived. Thanks you.

My little angel left us on March 27.200. He had an asthma attack and could not be saved.His name was Patrick, he was 11 years and 7 months old.He was a beautiful, talented boy, he loved sports, especially skateboarding, he left some fantastic drawings in this world. My hart is going out to the mother on this site who also lost her child to asthma, and I would like to get in touch with her and share our pain. Our children shouldn't have died of asthma in this century!
July 20, 2000
Annette, I had to come and re-read Meica's story on this the third anniversary of her death. Such a beautiful girl. And so loved. Her legacies have forever changed our world - making her corner of it a better place. What more can anyone do in their lifetime? Peace to you, Bill and Logan on this day and always. Yvonne, Mommy of Joey (14/4/97-31/12/98)
January 25, 2000
I too have a special angel. My son Bob died on Dec. l, 1999 at the age of 18. The ache in my heart is almost unbearable, but sites like yours help in just knowing that others have been down this dark road and have found light in their memories of their angel. God Bless You.
January 17, 2000
My brother died and left me the oldest of the family. I often wonder what he would be doing now or what he would have become.Grief is a very personal and private thing, which has to be worked through by our own decisions.Time does not lessen the pain to the point that I forget him, but it enables me to have a basis for memories.I share in everyone's pain and wish you all peace of mind. God bless you!
January 04, 2000
This is a wonderful tribute. I too lost a child, he was 7 years old, my son, Donnie. I miss him dearly, there is not a day that goes by that I don't think of him. I think of the things we used to do. Holidays are especially hard. The only ones who seem to understand this are the people that have been there. My son was killed at school, the last day of school, in the playground. He went into cardiac arrest, laid to long, they couldn't revive him. Imagine sending your child off to school only to not have him return..God Bless you all.
