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.

I'm doing alot better this week, thanks to all your prayers. My husband and I are leaving this evening to go to the cape until sunday. I think it will do us both good just to get away. I still go to curves and sandy you said that we recieve signs from a child/children and that some times we don't know we do well at curves we do wacky wednesdays and last week i had to have something hawaiian and you put your name in for wacky wed. drawing well my name was pulled and i thought it was touching for me exspecially for winning the drawing. Knowing Michaelfor being so proud of me he helped to bring me up from such a down week.
Selva, I have the web page but for some reason it wouldn't let me in this morning but I'll give it to you any ways. it's pretty long.

Hi dear Deb, thank goodness you were able to save things, and had back-ups on CD's! It just goes to show how important it is to back-up important things on a CD in case your comp. crashes! Happy you're doing better this week, and a trip to the Cape with your hubby sounds like a fantastic getaway!! Before you know it, school will be starting again.
Gosh, yes, how true Deb, and congratulations for winning, Michael was helping you to lift your spirits, and it worked! How wonderful for you!!
I'll try the link you provided and see if I can view the webpage, thanks so much for providing it for us all,
Much love & Hugs,

Hi my Angel sisters, I'm sorry to come in line while in valley days, but I just wanted to let you know that all of you are in my prayers, Donna Thanks so much for the garden, the one I have for Solange and all of our Angel kids, had been kind of ugly, because we has had so much rain lately that its incredible, and the wind does not help, for the last 3 days Miami looks like London in the winter except for the cold,please let us know how is Shar and you doing, you know I love you both, Deb, that is so nice that you are taking some days to go to the Cape, when I used to live in NY I will go to the Cape, it is so nice up there, I tried to web site but could not get through, but I promise I will keep on trying, all I had after many trys was Yahoo and another weird site, Verna, you are keeping very quiet and everythime that happens I (we) worry about you my dear sister, Lisa, you are in my mind and prayers, when Solange's birthday came after she was called to Heaven, I had a mass on her name, her friends came and we let out 21 balloons up into the air after mass, everybody sign some message (including myself) in the balloons, Dec 7 she would have been 21 years old, and it was so nice to see all those balloons disapeared into the sky that even the priest cried, that's a sugestion, maybe next Dec 7, I will go to a park or to the beach and do the samething, just let your heart decide. Sandy my dear sister, I'm still not crying and it is getting to be toooooo much to handle, I have an apptn with my pshycho on friday, maybe she will help me on this, in the meantime I am praying hard, and on top of it I am feeling guilty about not crying, am I going nuts? I hope so, maybe this way if I can go out of reality, this might help, well in the meantime I will keep on praying and remember everything I do and try I will do it in the name of God, He put me through this and I know He will help me go through it. I love you all my sisters, and I really mean that. Selva

Dearest Angel Moms, I have something to say to each of you and its a little heavy Your Prayrers we Believe saved Shars life this morning, Shar got wheezy two days ago and saw her Dr yesterday had xrays and thought it was just the virus this morning Jan her roomate who she takes care of but it goes both ways called and told me they were rushing Shar to ER I got there and it was bad I have had bad asthma attacks but never this she couldn't breathe and her levels were low and dropping fast and the Dr asked about putting a breathing tube down they were working like gangbusters and then asked if I knew her instructions for life support and I knew the xrays show a little pneumonia in one side but the lungs look very wrong and no answers Shar is stable and breathing on her own with oxgen no one can explain the turn I was there and neither can I but as I was driving home tonite I knew it has been all your Prayers how do I tell each of you Thankyou Shar will have a rough few days but she's hungry can you believe it she doesn't remember to much Thank God but she knows things were going bad really bad but not the rest and she said to tell you Thankyou from her Heart she believes the same as I had it not been for your Love & Faithfulness I don't think my Shar would be here so from my Heart Thankyou and I Thank God for Hearing the Prayers of your Hearts. All I can say right now is God Bless each and every one of you and Please keep praying they will pushing antibiotics and treatments and cultures till we find out what is wrong and Praise God her Heart is holding on Well too and I Praise God for each of You Love seems like a small word but it encompasses so much more I Love You and God Bless each of You and may you sleep a little better knowing YOU made a difference by Love and Prayers Donna

Dearest Angel Moms, I like to tell you of something that happened to Mikey in 1989 Mikey faced his first life and death crisis and something beautiful came from this awful experience on June 2 he had major surgery it was high risk he weighed 65 lbs and his spleen was so enlarged and liver that they pushed his stomach up they met in the middle he survived after weeks of being in ICU then two months later he got a strep infection in his blood the nite we stood bedside he was dying and we didn't have the answers as to why but when he recovered he told me what happened that night he saw all that was happening though he was unconcious and then saw the light and met an Angel called Michael and I prayed if God was to take him I would be strong but in my heart sometime that nite my heart was saying don't leave me not by words but in my heart Mikey heard those words and his Angel Michael said you have a choice someone is calling you or you can come with me when Mikey chose to return his Angel told him I will carry your pain Mikey you will not shoulder it alone It was my heart who said those words not my mind or mouth but my heart. What I'm trying to say Our children hear our Hearts not our words but our hearts the next time Mikey saw his Angel Michael was three days before he died the Wed before Easter at this point of his journey Mikey spent alot of time in a comatose state His Angel met him and when Mikey saw him Mikey cried out Michael what is wrong and he said I'm so tired the pain you have gone through has tired me but Mikey YOU WILL NOT BE ALONE WHEN YOU DIE I WILL BE WITH YOU. Mikey regained conciousness on Good Friday as though nothing had ever happened smiling and Perky but weak but he told me this to tell others, I know many of you are seaking answers It is OUR Hearts that are heard not our thoughts or words but Our deepest heart speaks to them I know to some it seems to bizare but I hope it reaches You to know Our Children hear Our Hearts I Pray somehow this will bring you comfort, hope the belief that death is not final no matter how awful. Why am I writing this because there is mourning that our children are so far away, they aren't no matter how awful the grief they Hear Our Hearts they know your innermost feelings that can not be expressed out Loud so as you are seeking answers I Pray God will touch your heart and open a door that isn't closed just hidden and they know the grief the longing and most importantly OUR Love I Pray for all seeking answers that God does allow this Beautiful Love to remain that it transcends the door we experience here on earth, God may not grant our answers as we would like but he answers OUR Love for Love is enduring Forever I Pray this will help someone to find a measure of God's Peace and an answer to YOUR HEART. Love&Hope Donna

Thank You for sharing that beautiful story, I was not able to cry for so many days, and today I did when I read your story, Thank you my sister, I needed to know that, specially from you that I believe everyword you said, i have been reading so much about near Death Experiences lately and I needed to believe it, now I do , Thanks to you. God Bless you my sister, and tell Shar that we will be storming Heaven with prayers from our hearts. Love. Selva

8/21/2003 09:53

Dear Angel Moms - just wanted to stop by and let you all know that, even though I don't post her much, you and your angels are ALL in my thoughts & Prayers only. We're putting the leukemia benefit together (for September) and I'm stressing about it. Ms. V. I did get to post at Diane's site for her birthday but I'm sorry it was a few days late.

8/21/2003 14:53

Dear Angel Moms, ~ Thanks for all the love, prayers, fwd pages and posts at Diane's memorial site. It really warms my heart to be surrounded with all the love and support, especially during this month. As we all know, it is this kind of support that helps us to get through the valley days. So, thanks again for being there. A friend of ours whom we have known since he was a child, lost his wife on Diane's birthday. He called to inform us around 10 PM that night. David was not home, therefore, I was the one to hear about it on the phone. I had made it through the day, but the news of his wife dying on Diane's birthday really set me back a bit. Although I did not know her as a close friend, I still could not help morn her passing, and it really brought back some very vivid sad memories of the first anniversary of Diane's passing. As some of you may recall from past posts, it was on the first anniversary of Diane's passing that I woke up to the news of Princess Diana's passing. It was around the same time of night that I learned what happened. So, I have been spending a lot of time keeping busy, and making sure I don't allow this to overshadow the fond memories and fond times I shared with Diane. With school starting, I will be helping with the grand kids and homework again. That always has a way of brightening up my days, so I am sure that, along with your prayers, will help me make it through the remaining days leading up to and including Diane's 7th anniversary, Aug. 31th. Lisa, Diane's birthday was Aug. 16th. I understand how hard it is to keep up with all the special days, so don't feel bad. I am always afraid that I will forget someone's special day. At one time, I had made an effort to try and make a list of all the special days to share with everyone. I am thinking of trying to do that again soon ... Please know that I will always keep all of you in my prayers daily; So, if I miss someone's special day, it will not be intentional and you and your angel will still be covered in my prayers. I will try hard to get back on later tonight to check up on everyone. Much love and bear hugs,

8/21/2003 23:56

Our dear Donna, what another trial for you and dear Shar to go through, Praise God that she's alright!! What a worry for you, with Shar being that ill. If all our collective prayers for her brought her back from the edge, what a wonderful, awesome God we have that hears our hearts and answers our petitions with His great love. Thank you Father for hearing the prayers of all, for Shar and our Donna, who is ever faithful to pray for all of us, we thank You and love You, through Your Son, Our Lord and Saviour Jesus! Amen.
Continued prayers for Shar for answers to continue her on the road to healing, and dear Donna, for you also, during this stressful time. Please let us know how Shar is doing, and tell her our love and prayers are with her.

What a wondrous story you have shared with all about Mikey and his Angel, during his last days, and passing on Mikey's wish to tell all, not only about his Angel, who was helping him with his transformation, but also to let us know that our loved ones, our children, who have slipped around the corner and are never far from us, hear from our HEART, the most inner part of our soul, and that they hear all that we say to them from our heart!! That gives such great comfort to all, especially our newly bereaved Moms who may think they've lost contact with their child, they haven't, because they hear from our heart! Thank you dear Donna for sharing such a beautiful, life-affirming story, it's definitely touched many a heart here, at this Circle of Love, and soothed many a Mom's heart too, that our children were met by someone to help them transition. God bless you dear one!
Lots of love & Angel Hugs,

8/22/2003 00:02

Hello my sister, it made me so happy to read that you finally cried after reading Donna's story, prayers were again answered, and you were able to release some of your pain! Our Lord certainly works through people to bring about an answer, how good He is to us all!!
Lots of love & Hugs,

8/22/2003 00:07

Hi Cin, nice to see a post from you again, and thank you for your thoughts and prayers for all here, it's very much appreciated, and you and Kristina are remembered also!
Love & Hugs,

8/22/2003 00:12

Hello dear Miss V, you're so right, with all the special days for all dear Angel Moms here, (and the way my memory is!), I mark them all down. Nobody here would intentionally forget a special day, it's just there's so many of them now, sadly.
Much love & Hugs,

8/22/2003 15:16

Dearest Sisters, Shar is doing well considering all that is wrong but first let me Thank You for Your Prayers. Shar has been diagnosed with a lung desease called C.O.P.D. as well as pneumonia and it has spread through her system she is getting treatments and oxgen and may go home Mon she will have a breathing machine and antibiotic therapy for the next three months. She sends her Love and thinks of you and ask how you are she is aware this has been an extremely sad month for so many Angel Moms and know you may not here much from me but we take time to pray together for healing for all I will write when I can but will be spending my days as much as I can with Shar and caring for my family. I Praise God that Mikeys story helped and Dear Selva that it unblocked those feeling is a beautiful gift from God and I know its still hard but am grateful God helped you through Mikey. Verna we are thinking of you and I'm so sorry your day of hardship was made even more sad and know you are in our Hearts and Prayers I may not be here as often but will keep you informed of Shars progress when I can but Your Prayers have done wonders and the Love of God that he hears your hearts and saved my Shar. At the same time Justin will be leaving for his new Apt Sept 2 so we will be helping him to set up. We are happy for him and look forward to a life change that should be an adventure. Heavenly Father please lift and comfort Our Sisters as they face there pain and Loss, Please send Our Spirits of Love to them and Comfort them and if you could send a rainbow to ease the storms Amen Lux Bunch Love& Lots of BearHugs Donna

My dear sister Donna, please be sure that I (we) will be storming Heaven for you and Shar, I know that God listens to us , just whenever you can, please keep us posted about you and Shar, tell her for me that she has to get better so she can come to our reunion in Miami, I will cook this cuban Ajiaco for her that will heal all her troubles, promise, she might be a few pounds overweight, but all of you will enjoy it. Yes I am going through my pain, but I can find time to pray for all of you my dear sisters. I love you all. Selva

8/22/2003 19:03

Donna Mikey is an Angel, that I know.

8/23/2003 14:18

Hello dear Angel Moms, Donna, thanks for the update for all on Shar, thank goodness they made the diagnosis, COPD, I have a friend who also has it, so I know what it all entails. Oh, won't it be wonderful if she comes home on Monday, hurray, thank You Lord for all answered prayers!! There is NO place like home to recuperate, and as Selva say's, tell Shar we send our love and prayers!!
Lots of love & Bear Hugs,

8/23/2003 14:29

Whoops! Posted off before I said hello to you my sister, loved your beautiful Cards this morning, and I pray you're doing much better, what a blessing that you were finally able to cry when you read Donna's story!!
WOW! Our humidity went away this morning, and it's actually a little cool, but that's OK with me, I'm a little bit tired of the humidity, anyway, :) - no swimming today! Actually, I'm making a beef stew for supper, can finally cook again without over-heating the kitchen. Praying for those Rainbows to come around for all,
Lots of love & Angel Hugs,

8/23/2003 20:25

Hello Angel Moms, ~ Just checking in briefly to check on everyone. Our friend's wife,[who died on Diane's birthday] funeral was today. Today is also grandson (Steven's) 9th birthday. Sandy, I've been reading about the raging fires in Canada. I pray that your home is not close to any of them. I also pray for all those whose home has been lost. I pulled up a map on map quest, but then couldn't remember the name of your state (?) Give us an update on all that's going on and let us know that you're in no danger. Gotta run and take care of some shopping, but will try to come back on later tonight. Take care everyone.
Love & BearHugs,

8/24/2003 09:39

Hello dear Miss V,
Oh gosh yes, those fires are terrible, they've been burning now for over 2 weeks, THANKFULLY no loss of life, but I watched the News last night, and saw all the devastation, all the homes burnt to the ground, and the homeowners haven't been able to see the damage yet, but a reporter was allowed in to video it. Yes, those fires are occurring in British Columbia, on the West Coast, a heavily forested Province, (we don't have 'States' Miss V, :) and I'm about 3,000 miles away from them, I live in the Province of Ontario, so we'll all safe, and your prayers are so appreciated for those out in B.C.
A Happy belated Birthday to Steven!
Much love & Bear Hugs,

8/24/2003 13:03

Dearest Selva, I'm so sorry we didn't connect it was so sweet of you to call and I left a message at the # on my phone and e-mailed hoping it was your right home address Sandy Thankyou for your Love and concern. The fear I have is Shar is going home but the roomate she has cared for didn't want her to come home while she is still ill well its going to take a long time but Shar is breathing much better and my fear is her roomate smokes continually and the Dr said it may put Shar back in trouble so I'm deeply grateful for all your Prayers and Love during this stressful time I'll be gone for this week to care for Shar she is to be released with nebulizer and oxgen tomorrow, need to go see Shar get Mike ready food clothes and do some cleaning I will miss you all terribly but you will be with me in Spirit and Shar knows you are Praying very hard, Dear Selva I'm so sorry we didn't connect phone needs new battery because it keeps bleeping out when I try to use it and it drove me nuts had to talk to Shar between bleeps Dear Verna I'm glad for Steven and Happy Happy Birthday and a candle is lit for All I Love You and will update when I get back but I know My Shar wouldn't be here if it had not been for your Prayers and I Thank You with all my Heart Signing off Space Cadet Love&BearHugs to All Donna

8/24/2003 16:10

Ah, dear Donna, thanks for the update, no, Shar having COPD and living with Jan who smokes is not good, but it's a tough situation, unless she agrees to smoke outside?? Or perhaps you could purchase one of those Hepa filter machines that cleans the air, just something to think about. Anyway, don't worry about us, our continued prayers for you and Shar, and always in our love.
Love & Bear Hugs,

good morning angel moms,
How relaxing getting away was. I wish we could of stayed a little longer but I'm just as happy to get the time away with my hubbie. I wish he would take more time off for us but he loves to work. he has as much energy in him as i have in me, we never sit still. i just tried to check out the web site and sorry that yahoo comes up but when it does go to the search and type in her web address and then two sites come up and click on the first one and you will get to her web page. i checked it out this morning to make sure it works. then scroll down to the bottom and click on her web page and you will have it.
i also wanted to let you all know that my dad is doing really well. he has lost 43lbs and doesn't have oxygen during the day any more. he just takes his time when he is walking so he doesn't get out of breath and relaxes alot. he can't wait for christmas.
I go back to work on thursday and my next class starts the second so i know next week will be crazy but you all will be in my thoughts and prayers daily. lots of love and hugs to you all. love debby
