Shane Whalen
This Prayer Circle is Dedicated to my son Shane Whalen Who Passed Away On March 15, 1999 at the Age of 24, & All Other Children


Start a prayer circle for bereaved parents who have lost a child.


There are many of us out there who have lost a child, and it is devastating. It changes the outlook on life, plunges you into a depression, and you think that the feelings and thoughts you have nobody else could possibly relate to. I think a prayer circle for bereaved parents would only benefit us and help us on our journey of grief. This Circle is one of Love, where a Grieving Parent can safely come to for Prayers, and to talk about their feelings.

Hello dear Selva, I'm sure that Solange was having the best Valentine's Day ever, with all the other Angels of ours that are now in Heaven. I know you must be feeling very sad today, 6 mon.'s since you've lost your precious daughter. It's really difficult to believe, isn't it? Six months ago you and Solange were laughing, talking, going places, and now with her gone, your life has changed, painfully. It's alright that you can't accept it right now and it's alright to cry out to God "Why". He does understand your pain! You have to be gentle with yourself and give yourself time, it's been so recent,you're still in the shock and disbelief stage. Today it is 47 months since we've lost Shane. I miss him sooo much! But by now I don't question "Why" and when you are further along, you won't either. You need time and lots of it to accept it as a reality. So let yourself feel all those feelings, as painful as they all are, and don't feel guilty about them, they're all very normal when you lost a child. That must have been so nice that Solange's friends called you last night, and I'm sure that Solange would have wanted Juni to go out and have a good time, God bless her, she's in her own grief. Yes, Selva, I believe all our kids had a good time and it's wonderful to think that they've all met each other! Selva, just let yourself feel however you want to today, and you know our love and prayers are with you always, much love,
Luv Sandy

Ay Sandy, thank you for always been there for me. Today is a very deep valley day, 6 months, I can not believe it, I went to the house and got out some of Solange Teddy bears, she loves stuffed dolls and she has a room full of it, I put a Valentines and a Sun Flower Doll she loved, on her bed. I also bought Sun flowers, that was her favorite, but she is not here. I'm having such a hard time today, I can not believe that she is not with me for 6 months. I pray and pray and pray that she is happy and in peace, and that all of our Angel kids are together having a wonderful time, that it is all I wish from God, if I only can be sure. Maybe my faith its a little weak, I pray to God to give me the same faith as Verna and Sandy. Maybe someday I can be at peace. I love you Angel mom's thanks for your prayers. Love Selva

Hi Eva, nice to see a posting from you again! My Yahoo IM is disabled at the moment, but as soon as it's working, I'll definitely add your name! (I'm waiting on a new computer) That's what we're all here for Eva, to support and try to help each other, and I'm happy that you find this Circle helpful to you! Thank you for the kind words, Eva, but the true glory goes to God for whispering in my ear to start it! This Circle has helped me and blessed me as much as it has you and the other wonderful Moms who post here. I pray you're not doing too badly lately, and you know too that your always in our love and prayers. May Our Lord wrap you in His loving arms and give you some peace, His peace which surpasses all others, love and prayers to you,
Luv Sandy

Hi dear Selva, I know today is a hard day for you, and that it's so hard to believe that Solange isn't here with you. That was a sweet thing to do, putting Solange's Teddy Bears out along with a sunflower doll and a Valentine, doing things like this help to keep us connected with our child and make us feel a little better. I know that Solange saw what you lovingly did for her and is very happy! Oh sweetie, Solange is happy and at peace, and your prayers for her have been heard by Our Lord, your faith isn't weak, it's because of your pain right now that it seems so. Just look at all the praying you're doing right now, that is a sign of faith! As I said, give yourself time, it's still so recent and your pain is so fresh. Keep praying and you know that you're always in our love and prayers too. Someday you'll know that Solange is happy, and then you will experience peace! Much love to you,
Luv Sandy

Hi Sandy. I'm in deep valley day, yes it has been 6 months since I have not seen my daughter, will you believe it? It is the first time in our lifes that we have been apart for so long. I can not take it. I'm angry, sad, and about to go nuts. I know my Solange is with Jesus. But I am going nuts, I just want a little peace, knowing that she is really happy. Love Selva

Keep postin here, We all love you Selva

Dearest Angel Mom's I know these have been some of the dark hours. I wish I could ease your pain, I felt it too on Valentines but something my pastor said has helped me through those dark hours sometimes it was days in the early years. He said God didn't make our children ill, God is only goodness and light darkness doesn't enter his realm of love. Selva and all the angel Mom's I thought my faith was gone or certainly confused but at those Moments I asked God to please send his Angels to protect me it was the longest day but when it passed I knew he had sent his angels because the darkness finally lifted. Selva never doubt Solange is with God he could only save her from her trial to bring her home just like we all hope for someday. She was loving and you gave her love and gave generiosly to others.God is Love only Love. Angel Mom's I hope what I've said will bring you the comfort it did me.Love & Hope Donna

Hi Donna. Thank you for your words and prayers, it certainly helps, I know I'm in dark moments right now, but even when I'm angry I try to reach out to God. I understand He is love, I just don't understand why He allowed for my Solange to have such a tragic accident. She was so full of life and so happy!. I also know that one of these days I will be able to accept it, but right now all I feel is this awful pain 24/7. I will continue to pray. love Selva

Hello dear Selva, I know, it seems so unreal that 6 months have gone by without Solange. It all seems like a bad dream to you right now, and you'll 'wake up' and she'll be there. I know how painful all this is for you, as do all the other wonderful Moms here.
It's alright to feel the way you do, and you're not going crazy, it's the grief that you're experiencing, the terrible pain, that makes you think that. Solange is in Heaven, and I pray that you'll find that peace in your heart that you will come to know it! I pray that Our Lord sends you that peace so you yourself will come to know that Solange is OK, and in God's loving care.
God bless you sweetie, I know how hard it is for you right now, much love and prayers to you dear one,
Luv Sandy

Hello dear Donna, nice to see you posting again! Yes, I guess we all felt a little down on Valentine's Day. The 'special days' and Holidays are so hard on us all, but with God's help we get through them. Your post is filled with love and wisdom, it really helps other Moms when we who are further along share what worked for us and still does! I also call on God to send His Angels to help and protect me, and I always experiece such a wonderful feeling of peace. As I've said before, God is so good to us grieving Moms! I know your post will help many, Donna, thanks for sharing it with all. Much love and prayers to you dear Donna,
Luv Sandy

Hi Angel moms, Me Again!, I'm so sorry to keep bothering you, but is like God is not letting me have a little peace. Remember I told you I have family in Cuba which they have a mass for Solange every 7 of the month, well, this is a cousin who is older than me, and her daughter and husband (32 and 34 years old with a 8 year old boy) had won a visa to the US, so they came to my house, the poor thing is like what my mother went through when she sent me to this country alone, but they came to my house ans stayed for a few months until he got a job etc, he is an engenier, finally he got a good job etc and today her mother called me to tell him that his mother died this morning of a massive heart attack (61 years old). So you know how he is feeling, first of all, he can not go back to Cuba unless the Comunist cuban goverment give him a visa or permission to go back to his country, that takes months, so in another words he can not be there for his mother, and he is such a sweet human beingm he locked himself in a closet and don;t want to come out or talk to anybody, so I respect that, and I will be going to their house tomorrow, it is hard for me .I don't understand why this things happens, and politics are in the middle of all that, just mean people who adores power and they don't care about others. I think this world its coming to an end. Sorry Angel moms but you are all I have to let go. Thank you for your understanding, God Bless You. Love Selva

hello angelmoms...today was not good for me..I was depressed and tried not to show it..I work at a prison...so I try to keep my emotions "in check" so that the convicts won't have anything to " feed on" when I am around...The warden has taken me out of working the Units...I have in the past been subjected to inmates taunting me about the death of my son...saying awful things...I had to go to the Warden with this issue...alot has changed ,but,I still every now and then get a convict who just takes great joy in my sorrow. I have to ask God to please show me the love he has for them and for me to continue to believe that these convicts will one day ,see the hurt that they inflict on innocent people and will turn from their evil ways and words. I have been moved to a different post I am now working in the clinic...where inmate traffic is limited...I have great Officers that I work with who "protect" me from the ones who are the trouble makers. I have prayed aboutit and left it with the Lord to one day use Ron and I full time on the music ministry. we did go to that church and give testimony and sing...instead of the two songs that we thought we were only going to sing... turned out, that the paster of that church called us and asked us if we would give our full program which consist of six songs and testimony.Ron and I were so excited.For this is what we have been praying about..That God will use us.....to open doors for us,,,and for us to have the courage to go forth to spread his word. It has been hard at times with me working full time..and not being able to be off every Sunday..But I have to trust that In God 's own time,he will make a way for us.It helps to take away some of the pain I have and turn it into something good for God, Selva ....honey I have no words to say..Only that i do understand the pain that you are going through, as we all do....Give yourself some time honey...I know it's hard....I have days like that myself...It has been a little over 8 months for me...and I too fall into deep depressions...I have to ask God to please help through these moments in my life..and I am thankful to him that he does ...I fight Satan everyday...at times when I feel like just giving up...I cry literally to God to help me...and to trust Him in knowing that my Matthew is safe in His arms.That alone helps me to deal with Matthew not being here..The spiritual part of me loves the Lord and trusts him ..the pysical part of me is selfish and wants my Matthew here with me...Just as you want your Solange with you..Yes we want our children with us...But I have to trust that God knows what he's doing...It tears me apart at times not knowing WHY!? I don't understand why....and I have to trust that one I will...but in the mean time....as Sandy says.....in time we learn how to live with the pain..it will never go away....but we will learn how to live it.I was able to share my testimony with the woman who lost her 8 year old son, Brandon . just a few short weeks ago.Her name is Cindy.please be in prayer for her as well..Her daughter who was driving the car that awful day when her brother was killed still has no recollection of the wreck..so please be in prayer for this family...I have to go now...for 6 am comes mighty early..Goodnight...and may God continue to love you and keep you....In His Care I Press On....Eva

Hi Angel Moms Today I'm crying tears that won't stop because Sandy Eva Selva visited Mikey. Thankyou so much with all my heart. These tears are of a deep joy because you came. Help me to find your angels my profile has my e-mail address so your name can remain private but it would give me such joy to visit with them and comfort. I have not known such profound love for my son for along time nor have I cried because of such Love! BearHugs Donna

Hi, I finally figured it out. I think our Angels had a hand in this, I've tried for a long time and couldn't figure out how to visit our Angels. I no sooner wrote and all of a sudden there was the answer. ThankYou Our Precious Angels and Thanks to you Verna your visit warmed my heart and Soul. BearHugs Donna

My heart goes out to everyone who a void in their lives. My son, Clarence Johnson Jr., left this earth March 17, 2001 at the age of 28. He was my first born and the first grandchild. He grew up to be a good person and my friend. Even though he is not here physically, he will always be with me.

Hello dear Selva, you are NEVER bothering us, you post as much as you want! Yes, I remember you telling us about your family back in Cuba having a Mass said for Solange on the 7th of each month, God bless them. I'm so sorry to hear of his mother's sudden passing, it must be devastating for him that he can't go back home and not be able to be with his family during this trying time, or even be there for the funeral. You would think that the government would make consessions on the Visa when there is a death in the family, that's really so sad. I'm sure you'll be a great help to them today, they need the love and support of family so much right now and with the great love you have in your own heart, the light of Christ will shine through you to them. May Our Lord give you the spiritual strength to deal with this right now, as you grieve yourself. Like Donna, I'll offer up a decade of the Rosary for you too. Much love and prayers,
Luv Sandy

Hello Eva, I pray that today is a better day for you. I'm so sorry to read that you had to endure such hurtful things from some of the men, on top of your own pain. I'm happy for you that you're now working in the Clinic, and have your fellow co-workers supporting and surrounding you. I know that God is so pleased with you, praying for these men, it shows what a big Christian heart that you have, God love you. I can only imagine how hard it must have been. That's wonderful that the Pastor asked you and Ron to do your full program, I know you must have touched many hearts! It sounds as though your prayers are being answered, and Our Lord is opening those doors for you both. That's a wonderful way of giving back, and lessening some of your pain for you. You must have been a big help to Cindy, giving your own testimony, what a terrible tragedy for her and her family also! Yes, we'll certainly pray for them. God bless you Eva, and love and prayers to you, let us know how you're doing,
Luv Sandy

Hi Donna, I'm so happy that our words at Mikey's site gave you so much joy! I'm glad your tears were of joy and not pain, we're all one big family and I feel close to our other Angels, I believe they've all met and are helping us here at this site. I'm overjoyed for you that you found such a sense of love for your Mikey, it was my joy to post at his site. Thank you for the beautiful post that you put on my Shane's site, it put a big smile in my heart, and I know he loved it as well! Bear Hugs and love back to you dear Donna, I'm so happy that our posts brought you joy and love. Much love and prayers to you,
