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 my sweet friends....not doing good today....the storms we've been getting adding to the misery and dread I've been feeling for awhile...I'm in a 40 hour refresher class this week.....today we had CPR and First Aid...I cried all through the CPR film...thinking how CPR would of maybe saved my Matthew's life if anybody would of know how to administer it...I even asked Seneca's dad why he did'nt do CPR on Matt....his response was." Well....Eva,You know after 6-8 minutes the brain does get damaged" .I was like "WHAT?" dammitt....I would of least been able to kiss my son''s sweet face gooodbye while he was still warm!!! and not cold!!! I was real angry with him...him being one of the first to show up at the scene....I'm still having nightmares about that...Tomarrow will mark 11 months since my Jesus called Matthew home...Selfish as I feel right now....I want him with me!!!God help me I need my Matthew....I love you all

Donna, my sister, I did not get into the circle until now, but do you know what, while I was watching the news, I was wondering if any of my sister from the Circle were in the path of that horrible tornado, so I pray anyway for all of you, I'm so glad to know your family is OK, I'm sorry my sister I was not there for you but I did pray for all the families involved in this tragedy, I came back from the Dr. late and I am feeling so bad that I just went straight to bed, but believe me I prayed for all those families, what a horror, we have hurricanes here and I know how bad it feels. Again my sister I'm happy that all your family are fine. God Bless them. Love. Selva

Hi my sister Eva, I understand so much what you are going through, I do go through the CPR classes every year when my license expire, due in august, and I do understand your pain and anger, when Solange had the accident I blamed poor Juny, her best friend for leaving her alone, and she was in so much pain and guilt that I broke down I asked her forgiveness, you see, God has a plan for everybody, and no matter CPR or the fact that Solange was driving alone that night (8 and a half months) it did had to happened, when God calls, things undone must stay that way, they have to answer to God's call, try not to blame anybody and try to forgive, its no one's fault, it was their time to go back , God wanted it that way. We can not understand, neither accept it, so we must aske God for relief, understanding,help, and forgivenes, we have no toher choice. Matthew and Solange and all our Angel Kids are in a better place right now, they completed their work here and that makes them better than we are, we are still in this ugly earth which is full of hate, war, politics, money, they do not need that right now, I always keep you all in my prayers (whenever I can pray) and so does all the Angel Moms from the Circle. Keep on posting and let your feelings out, this is a rough week and a very ugly weekend for us, I'm starting to feel it deep, I just will realy on Jesus so He can help me go through with it. I have no other children, so its going to be a very empty and painful Mother's day to me. But keep on hanging on to God my dear sister, He is all we have. Love you Selva

HI all you Angel Moms, well I went to the gastroenterologist (?) yesterday, he gave me some nasty test, you will laugh if I tell you, without anesthesia, so he said the bacteria is gone but I have a parasite, he will let me know on friday after the tests are complete what kind is it, (at least that is what he thinks), I'm only supposed to eat white, bread,pasta (without any sauce), bananad, green aples , rice. saltine crackers etc. He prescribe some powder that its supposed to stop the diahrreas until he would know what to do, anyway the powder taste awful, but I'm willing to take whatever if it will help to stop it, I'm feeling very weak, but he said because I was drinking so much Gatorade and Pedialite I'm not dehydrated, so that is all its new, I did not get into the circle yesterday because I went straight to bed after coming back from the Dr's. I read all your e mails and I thank you so much for it, you are really special. I'm very deep in the valley, you know mother's day will be my first, I get chills down my spine just thinking about it, I'm planning to stay in my house , don't want to see or talk to anybody that day, just God and my daughter. I hope everybody is fine, I'm glad Donna's family are fine. Love you all. Selva

Dearest Selva, I know your prayers are always with us as sick as you are I'm glad the specialist had some possible answers and some medicine. I thought the same thing you did are there others going through these storms and nightmares I've lived through them too but never a F5orF4 I wish I had an answer for Mothers Day especially for you the Carmelite Sisters are praying for you especially and the Eva and Lisa and all the other Angel Moms. Something that helped me a little was focusing on Mikeys Grandma and his Aunt who was also his GodMother and never had children of her own or my Sister some how it helped but your right it is a day we search out with God's help, Mikeys pumpkins are coming up so that will help. Selva please please take care of you and know we are sending Love and wish we could be with you , I hope you will feel that Love that day I do plan to go alone to a place that Mikey and I went its near our old house its a park that we went to as often as we could, I just want that time alone with him and than I can go on, I think we all will find a way to cope diverse but hopefully comforting, my heart goes out to you and Eva and Lisa do what is best follow your heart it will guide you Selva Rest as much as you can and please don't worry we will all get through with God's Grace there will be a morning after. If posting helps all day POST don't be alone unless thats the best and your heart needs to follow its own path. Thank you Dearest Sister and rest.

Dearest Angel Moms, I wrote this poem thinking of the value of a tear, I hope it helps some how Sending with Love.
One Tear
Washes away the soot
Joins one to another
Speaks louder than the loudest horn
Begins a seedling on its way
Bids Farewell to a life passed away
Begins the healing so long stored away
One tear does a snowflake make
One drop contains the life giving process
Too many tears unshed does hatred make
One drop passing does forgiveness take
All for the Human Sake
Does one Tear Drop Make
Bunches of Love of Hope and Tender BearHugsssssssssssss Donna

Oh dear Eva, today is Matthew's 11 month passing, and I know it must be a very difficult day for you. It's not 'selfish' to want him back, it's your pain of missing him so that makes you feel that way. I agree with Selva, when you have completed what God wants of you in this life, He calls you back home, I know that isn't very much consolation to you right now hurting so badly, our Shane died here at home, but nevertheless the Paramedics brought him to Emergency, and when the Dr. came to talk to us to tell us he was gone, I remember screaming at her, "Don't you come in here telling me my son is dead, you keep working on him". I was angry with that Dr. for a while, but now of course I realize that there was NOTHING she could have done, he was already dead before he got to the hospital.
And of course in time I came to realize that the Dr. was not at fault, and in my heart I asked God for forgiveness, and now know, as Selva says, when God calls you back home, there is nothing anyone can do to stop it, as painful as it is for us. Keep pressing on in His care as you say, hold tightly to His Hand, and know that we love you and are praying for peace for you, our sister, especially through this difficult time for you. Always in our love, always in our prayers,
Much love,
Sandy

Hello my dear sister Selva, I believe I know what nasty test you're speaking of, but no, I won't laugh, I'm just happy that finally they have an answer and a remedy, suggestions, to overcome this illness you've had for so long now!
I pray that the results tomorrow will let your Dr. and you know what kind of parasite it is, and then rid you of it completely!
Sweetie, I know the hardest day, Mother's Day, is coming up on Sunday, and this one is your first as well as Eva's and Lisa's. Yes, you lost your only child, but always remember that you are still a mother and always will be! Like so many other special days, sometimes the anticipation of the day is worse than the actual day itself, and as painful as it is, you will get through it. Try to do something to mark the day, lighting a candle, buying a special flower, sometimes these little things help. You and the other newly bereaved Moms mark the day that is most comfortable for you, whatever way you and Lisa, Eva, decide upon, and as Donna says, if you want, post as many times as you want to on Sunday, one of us will be around. I remember my 1st Mother's Day without Shane, and all I did was cry. Thankfully my Chris wasn't here, so I didn't have to hold anything back for his sake, God love him. To this day, I can't even look at the Mother Day Cards in the stores, but it is more of a bittersweet day, and I handle it better, but still with sadness in my heart. There are no 'right' or 'wrong' ways to handle the day, whatever way your heart leads you is the best way. Our dear Donna is having the good Sisters light a candle for us all, God bless you Donna, that's so nice of you to do dear one, especially for Selva, Lisa and Eva, their 1st. I will have all of you in my heart and prayers that day, and will light Candles for you all also after Mass. Leaning on Our Lord, holding onto Him for His support and love, as well as the love and support of all the Angel Moms here will help to make a very difficult day a little easier, I pray. God love you sweetie, and let us know about your Dr.'s results tomorrow, love you my sister,
Lots of love,
Sandy

DEAR ANGEL MOMS,

I WANT TO THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR PRAYERS FOR MY DAD AND FAMILY. I FOUND OUT YESTURDAY THAT MY DAD CAME HOME FROM THE HOSPITAL LATE TUESDAY NIGHT AND THAT HE IS ON THREE DIFFERENT MACHINES AND ONE OF THEM EVERY DAY AT 11 AM HE GETS ON AND THE READINGS ARE SENT RIGHT TO THE HOSPITAL AND IF THINGS ARE OK THEY WON'T SEND AND AMBULANCE TO HIM. HE ALSO NEEDS TO LET THE FIRE DEPARTMENT KNOW WHEN THE ELECTRICITY GOES OUT BECAUSE THEY WILL COME AND SIT WITH HIM IF IT'S TOO LONG OR TAKE HIM INTO THE HOSPITAL AND ALSO NOW HE HAS A VISITING NURSE WHO COMES OUT TO CHECK ON HIM ONCE A WEEK . THANK GOD OUR PRAYERS WHERE ANSWERED.
I HOPE THINGS ARE GOING WELL FOR YOU ALL. I HAVE BEEN A LITTL EIN THE VALLEYS THESE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS AND I KNOW IT'S BECAUSE OF SUNDAY. I PRAY THAT GOD LIFTS ARE SPIRITS UP AND SHINES SO BRIGHT THAT IT HURTS ARE EYES JUST SO WE CAN FEEL OUR CHILD NEAR US. AMEN. LOVE AND PRAYERS TO YOU ALL.

Dear Angel Moms, yes, Mother's Day on Sunday will be difficult, and very painful for newly bereaved Moms. But you know that we are linked arm-in-arm with you in this Circle, and our love, our sense of family here, and our prayers for each other hopefully will help all to ease the day a little for you. Please let your emotions out, cry, rant, if you want to, post here if you want, we all will mark the day in our own way, and understand with love that some of you are going to be in great pain. We all walk beside each other, not behind, not in front, but alongside, and this Circle of Love will be here for you on Sunday.

And to we Angel Moms who have lost their own Mother, may we remember her with the love she left us, the fond and loving memories we have of our Mothers, and thank God for giving them to us.
Much love and hearfelt prayers to all,
Love Sandy

Oh dear Donna, what a touching poem! You've made the single tear very valuable! It's very beautiful, and now I'll think of one tear with a new insight, and recognize the beauty within it. Thank you for sharing your talent with us! Lots of love & Bear Hugsssss,

Hello my dear Deb! Gosh, we've all been so worried about you, and your Dad, family!! I'm so happy that you finally wrote! Oh gosh Deb, thank goodness that your Dad's alright. At least now, hooked up to Monitors, etc., he'll be watched more closely and your Mom won't have to trick him into going to the hospital, the machine that sends the info. to the hospital will do that for all of you. And a visiting nurse once a week, that's terrific too, they're taking very good care of him! Your Mom and all must be so relieved. Yes, Praise Our Lord for answered prayers! Ah, sweetie, you're having valley days too, no, Mother's Day on Sunday wouldn't be helping either, it's the only Holiday throughout the year that is designed for Mothers, and unfortunately for those of us who've lost a child, the day takes on a very new meaning. With God's graces He'll see us through, and I pray that you'll feel your Michael around you, feeling his love, on Sunday. Thanks again Deb for writing, as I said, we were very worried about you and your Dad. Much love to you our dear Deb,
Love Sandy

Hi all you Angel moms. Well I'm sure you know how I'm feeling, deeeeeeeeep valley day. I called my Dr. today, all the test turned out negative, so I do not have a parasite or a bacteria, ????, now I'm supposed to have a colonoctopy (?) I think I don't know how to spell it, on thursday, to tell you the true I think what I have its gastritis (?) don't know how to spell it , I have that done before, but what I don't like its the day before, he is worry because I have lost a lot of pounds, but since Solange went to Heaven I have no desire to eat. If it is cancer, it is more that welcome, BUT my sister and I are ready to start construction and I think it will not be fair to her, so I'm letting God do His job.On top of everything my pshyco dropped me, ??? I don't know why, I am a professional and when my clients don't call I will call them to find out what its wrong, but she did not, imagine on Mother's day weekend, qwell after I left a message whishing her a Happy Mother's day then they began to call me and give me appnmts for next monday, but I lost my trust, my sister said I'm not doing the right thing, but I'm sure you understand, she lost a son 9 years ago, how can she forget about me?, I will look for another pshyco or maybe I wont. You Angel Moms are the best help I can get. I'm planning to go to my house tomorrow night and spend Mother's day alone with my daughter, no calls no visitors, I pray to God that I will make it through. I will be posting and PLEASE, enjoy the day with your children, don't be on the computer, you SHOULD be with your kids, I will just post and I know for sure your prayers will be with me. I love you Angel Moms. Selva

Hello dear sister, Selva,
I'm happy for you that the diarrhea has stopped, etc., and the tests came back alright, and you make sure to go for the test on your Colon, to find out exactly if it is gastritis or not. We all understand that you don't care, and would rather be with Solange, but trust me my sister, that feeling is going to pass, I think most moms feel that way in the 1st year, I did, but now I'm thankful that God didn't listen to me and I'm still here. So please, for your sister's sake, brother's sake, our's, and your own - take good care of yourself! We love you and need you! I know how hard it is right now, this weekend of all weekends, and if spending it at your own home with Solange makes it easier, then you do just that! No, it's not selfish to ask us to be there for you on Sunday, that's what we're here for, and I will be here, other than going out for Dinner with our Chris, but I'll get back to you when I can, I promise!
You'll probably get more mail on Sunday than any other time, :) It's a hard day for all, and all of us will spend it in our own way, so if you want to be alone, that's OK, and we will be here for you! Love you my sister, and please take care of yourself!
Lots of love,
Sandy
