Rhonda Aylesworth
My son Sean's Death Anniversary May 6th

On May 6th, 2004 my son, Sean, died in a car accident. He was 21 years old, and my only child.

As May 6th approaches I find that I am going deeper into depression. Sean is on my mind constantly, to the point that I sometimes stop in the middle of a sentence because a memory just pops in. Then I struggle to remember what I was saying. Each year I go through this! Each year I think I am stronger and moving forward. I even had my book published about Sean (Shattered Soul; A Grieving Mother's Journey Back To God) and I thought, "Ok, now I have purged all the pain and can face this day remembering the joy he gave me. But, again, the day is approaching and I hurt so much I wonder if I will survive it. Please pray for me, that God will give me a lasting peace.

Dear Rhonda:

I hope you managed to get through the anniversary alright, and that you're feeling better now that it is over. You'll be in my prayers. :-) Around the anniversaries, it is totally normal to feel this kind of sadness; I would be a bit worried, though, if you were depressed all year, however.

God bless. :-)

Lord Jesus Christ, move close to Rhonda and share your warmth. Whisper to her your will, and let her know her son is safe, that his purpose had been fullfilled, and that he is now with you.
Place your hand upon her heart, and ease her pain.
Place your lips upon her cheek and share your peace.
In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.

Hello Rhonda, First of all I want to tell you how sorry I am that your precious son died. God knows the pain in your heart on that awful date. My sister's Mother-in-law had a son who was almost 3 y/o die from pneumonia years ago. She called the Dr. on a Sat. and he told her to give the child 2 aspirins and come in Monday. By Monday he was too far gone and had developed pneumonia and died. Years later she remarried and had another son born on the very same day. She said she did not know whether to be sad or happy on that day. So she takes half the day and grieves and the last half and rejoices with the son that has a birthday. If you could possible do something pleasant on that day that is planned. Like go out of town to a new place and form new memories. He is in God's hands now. No hurt can come to him anymore. The devil cannot put him through troubles anymore. One day we all will be with our loved ones. I pray God will comfort you and know that the Lord cares for you and your feelings. He has something special for you in life. One young man was killed in our town who worked and managed at a restaurant about 10 years ago. He was a young college student a strong Christian. He was the only son of his parents. It was very sad but somehow God brought his parents through. A lot of people have lost only children. It is sadder than if you had other children to comfort you. Thank the Lord you had him for the years you had him. There is a care for you from people in the earth about this trial you are in. With Prayers...........Lee
