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.

Dearest Selva, my sister, you know you have us all! What did I tell you a while ago? - that we'd always be here for you and we always will! I'm glad you finally got your computers working, and I sent out a fwd. to all at your e-mail address so I hope you received it.
I had trouble today logging on too, I guess Beliefnet is experiencing some temporary problems. I'd say good for you taking the week off, but you have to spend it working anyway, April 15th is creeping up fast and you must be very busy! I missed you too, and I'm happy to be posting again. Oh no, Selva, :) yes, I've heard of Murphy's Law, and here I am laughing again, it sure applies to you this week, doesn't it!! Don't forget to take some time just for yourself while you're so busy, it's just as important too! Take care dear one and talk to you later, prayers and much love,

Hello our dear sister Eva, as I said, I'm so happy that you posted, everybody's been worrying about you, and now finally we hear from you! Oh Eva, I can feel your intense pain in your posting, God love you sweetie, it's so painful, isn't it. But you have to remember it hasn't even been a year for you yet, so you're still experiencing that raw pain and all that goes with it, you have to give yourself as much time as you need to grieve. Let the pain out, please post when you're feeling so badly, you know we understand, care and want to help you. I think it's only natural that you'd want to be with your mom right now, she can comfort you better than anyone with her love for you. It's also understandable that you also go there because Matthew is buried there, so you do that if it helps you. Your husband is probably concerned about your travelling because of your safety, and also, men grieve differently than women, we let our feelings out, but they've been conditioned to be the 'strong' ones, even though they're grieving themselves. Anyway dear Eva, we're all here for you, we all care, and please post when you're feeling so badly, we want you here! May Our Lord wrap you in His loving arms and give you some peace in your heart, He loves you so! Many prayers and lots of love,

Hi our dear Lisa, glad to see a post from you too! Yes, our dear Selva has, with her big heart, given us the gift of laughter this week, and it was good to read that she had a laugh too. Thank you for your forward, as I said, it's hilarious, but I just looked at your e-mail address, and it's different from the one you gave me? Use this one instead? Anyway, it was nice of you to post your e-mail address, now everyone can write to you! Oh, isn't that wonderful of your step-daughter to do, I'll definitely visit the site! A beautiful way to honour Aaron. And thanks for posting Aaron's days, now we'll all be able to write each other's down to remember all. My Shane:

Born May 28, 1974, returned back home on April 15, 1999.

Love & Hugs,

Dearest Verna, I'm sorry you didn't see your Dr and that it went badly. I was thinking that there is a device that can be attached to the computer like a microphone so you won't need to write it does it by saying whatyou want and writing it for you. Thank you for visiting Mikey and leaving such a beautiful poem, I hope the delay is not long for you to see the Dr and get the answers you need. Praying you will soon start recovering, Thank you for your kind words and for visiting Mikey and Christina with all your going through your Love reaches out for all of us. my address Love & Hope BearHugs Donna

Dearest Eva, follow your heart it will lead you as it has to a place of peace or comfort I'm sure it helps your Mom too. Please don't stop posting and don't second guess your posting we are all here for you and want to hear whatever you need to let out, its ok you know we've all been where you are but don't go it alone, don't isolate ok, I know its hard to receive Love when the pain is so raw and overwhelming but it won't always be as intense, not like know don't judge yourself so hard You are a precious child of God and he would never judge you as you are yourself. Please know you are in our prayers everday and I don't know if this will help but Jesus has the tender heart of a mother, one day one hour one moment. Love&BearHugs Donna.

Dearest Angel Sisters, I was so busy catching up yesterday I forgot to give you some wonderful news the tumors that they took from my head are firbromas and weren not Malignant God Thank You with all my Heart the one on my face if not just a mole would be taken care of just by having it removed. My foot has a big one and they can only use chemicals and will be done by the end of June and I will be able to walk again I feel like a kid just thinking about it. My head is fuzzy which feels great and soon I'll be able to wear rabbit Ears for Easter. How do I tell you All Thankyou for your Love and for storming Heaven with your prayers my heart is so full. Your e-mails poems visits to Mikey have made this journey so much easier because through all your own pain your bore mine and God didn't give us words deep enough for Love that goes that deep.

Hi Angel Moms. Quiet today in the Circle, I just finished working and I'm going to "try" to relax for a while, tommorrow I have to go to my office and God knows the piles I'm going to have on my desk. I've been in the valley today, no matter how much I worked, I miss my daughter sooo very much, it was a very nice day here in Miami and I'm sure she would have gone to the beach, you know I wish I knew if they have beaches in Heaven, Solange will love it. Well my Angel moms, today ins Palm's sunday but I did not go to church, but I will be praying for all of us. I love you . May God Bless you all. Selva

4/14/2003 01:09

Hello dear Angel Moms,:) ~ Just a note to let you all know that I am following doctors orders! It may not seem like it, but I really am. The problem is, I sleep during the day and then, I am wide awake late at night. I talked to my new doctor about my sleep disorder and will be getting help with that problem just as soon as all the other problems have been taken care of. Also, I will be fwd an update on the results of my last doctor's appointment.
I want each of you to know how very much I appreciate your prayers, and also the fond reminders to make sure I take good care of myself and follow doctor's orders. I told my daughter Cheryl that she now has a lot of angel moms on her side! :) She was very happy about that! Ha-ha!
Donna, thanks for your prayers and kind and encouraging words also. You have a lot on your plate, but still, you find time to reach out to others. I think that is our mission in life now. No matter what else God has for us to do, this is by far one of the most important. I believe this with all my heart. :) Also, I thank God that all turned out well for you and that you are well on your way to a full recovery! :)
Selva, your post to me made me laugh out loud! Ha-ha! :) I shared it with Cheryl and she said, "Mama, you have got to start taking better care of your health because a lot of Moms are depending on you. So, you and the other Angel Moms have my word that I am doing that from now on! Also, Selva, when I read what you said about wishing you knew if they have beaches in Heaven, I said out loud, "They do." :) Now, I know a lot of people will find it hard to believe, but I believe that was God's Holy Spirit speaking through me. The words given to me to speak were spoken with such assurance, you would think that I knew that there were beaches in Heaven! And, of course, there is no way I could know this. I did not plan to say this... Still, the words I spoke said, "They do!" :) I think that is God's way of assuring you that your Solange it happy and having more fun than she could ever have down here! Isn't God wonderful!!! It doesn't stop the pain in our hearts, but it sure does help to know in our hearts that our children are with Our Father, and though we will long for them until we see them again ... Since they can't be with us in the physical ... There is no better place that we would want them to be, than with our Lord and Savior! Take my word for it ... Your Solange, Diane, and the other Mom's guardian angels are having a Heavenly Beach Party unlike any this world has ever known! And just think, ... When we finish our work here on earth, we will be there with them! :)

4/14/2003 01:23

To all angel moms, ~ Thank you sooo much for sharing your email address and the special dates. You will be hearing from me and I look forward to hearing from you! :) Always remember ... You are in my thoughts and prayers!

4/14/2003 01:35

Selva, I forgot to say thank you for your kind words about the books I have within me! :) I, too, look forward to sharing with the world about MaDear. :) I just received an email from my book project manager requesting our first meeting since she returned to the states. She has been so very busy with a local project. I will keep you all posted on the outcome of our meeting. So, say a prayer that she likes what she has read thus far! :)

4/14/2003 05:50

Dearest Angel Moms, Selva we are all thinking about you and know you must be tired from all the work you have done and know this is a difficult week for you, you are in our hearts and prayers and sure hope your computer is working, through all youv'e done you have made time to reach out to me and others and hope that Love will return to you, Solange gave you such a beautiful gift of laughter and for us as well, Thank you for your thoughtfulness and kindness that helped me through my time of need. I got a beautiful mixture of sunflower seeds a new one called vanilla lace its pale yellow and black in the center and some one told me where to get the deep red petal and black seeds in the middle, my hubby was glad that God had left you a sunflower through the awful loss of your beautiful garden. As soon as we find the bricks to build we will start and hope to plant May 1st. I'm hoping to borrow a digital camera so I can make a web page and borrow a scanner. Here's Hoping Love&BearHugs Donna Ps I got a forward from you but my server blocked it these machines are so tempormental Thank You for sending I just wish I could have read it. I'm going Tuesday to get the red sunflowers so Solange will know they are special for her. Rest in God's gentle Arms Dear Selva. Sending more Love Me

4/14/2003 06:15

Dearest Verna, I'm so glad you posted and soon you will have news about your draft of MaDear how wonderful and I'm hoping you will get good news from your Dr. let us know ok, I hate it too when my sleep cycle gets screwy but I'm glad you come here, it sure helps and I agree with you we may be down phyiscally but not out and we can reach out. I'm glad your taking Good Care like Selva said we need you too, and you have so much work ahead of you working with an editor, just think how many copies you will have to sign! The Love here is such a healing Love and I Thank God everyday for giving Sandy such a mission and she said Yes, she is our Guardian Angel we have all learned a beautiful gift that we can help bear one anothers pain and be there I know how my life was before and now there are Our Angels and each other, my heart is not heavy anymore and I keep meeting Moms just like us and get to share about this Haven of Love, even my sister prays for all of you and ask how everyone is, she loves the closeness here and the hope and the stories like MaDear and when Solange made us all laugh and prays when someone is in the valley. She ask when I speak to her "How are the Angel Moms who needs prayer and what are our Angels up to" she knows the difference you have all made in my Life. Soon the birds will be singing, Love to All & BearHugs Eva we miss you and hope your with your Mom. Donna

4/14/2003 12:42

THANK YOU ALL for your supportive emails and posts!!!! sorry it took so long to get back here and tell you that. I feel better, after reading everyones advise, knowing we are doing things right.The first couple days after it happened I was afraid to mention his name or to ask questions because i didnt want to hurt them. But I did anyways. Sometimes we cried but most times we just started telling stories about him. Thanks again and GOD BLESS ALL YOU ANGEL MOMS!!!!

4/14/2003 16:33

Hello dear Angel Moms! Selva, you're working too hard, I guess you have to, but take care of yourself too! Yes sweetie, tomorrow is the 15th of the month, and you know that my prayers and love are with you as we each remember that date that is special to us. Yes, I agree, you have made us laugh, or maybe it was Solange doing it, but it felt good, so thank you my dear sister!
It's so beautiful when I come here and see moms in pain themselves, reaching out to each other in love!
Deb, you know I love ya, and my prayers are always with you too, have a good trip, but make sure and come back here!
Verna, I'm so happy that you're posting, and following Dr.'s orders - at least I hope you are - there's that little matter of quitting, remember?, :)
Should I tattle on you? Nope, but I expect you to say "I'm trying!!" That will do you more good re your lungs than anything else!! YES, we all want to read about MaDear, so I pray that you're able to get it published soon! Thanks for resending the pictures of Cheryl and Diane, two beautiful young ladies, I still have their other picture in my files, so when I get a printer, scanner, I can print them out!
Take care of yourself dear Verna, we do need you here!

My dear Donna, you know how happy I am about your health, as well as the other Angel Moms! Keep that bottle of Champagne chilled! :) I'm overjoyed over the tumors being benign, and I know that your foot will be healed too!
Yes, this Circle is filled with love, and it's because of all you amazing moms that it's become that way! I have my little talk with God and with Shane before I come here, so there's plenty of Divine help! And I know all your precious Angels, are hard at work here too!! My heart is full, and I thank you all for the amazing women you are.
My love and prayers are always with you, much love to all,
Love Sandy

4/14/2003 16:41

Hello Stacilee, oh sweetie, I'm so happy that our letters/advice have helped you and your family out, and just look, as you say, you were doing the right things anyway! Yes, mentioning your little nephew's name is music to their ears, so I'm glad that you're bringing it up. You're very welcome, and God bless you too, please post here whenever you want to and maybe your sister will want to sometime in the future when she's up to it. Our love and prayers are with you all,
Love Sandy
