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.

Hi my Angel sisters. Eva, please know that you are in my prayers juts like all our Angel Sisters, I know of your pain, today its 14 months since my Solange was called to Heaven, just think my sister, you have other children i have no one else, Solange was all I had, so I have nothing to live for, but I will not take my life, even if I want to do that 24/7, because I think that if I do that , then I will not be reunited with Solange again, our lifes belong to God, my belief is that He gave us a choice before we come to this Earth, we chosed our life here for some reason than now while we are here we don't understand, but maybe we had lessons to learn, or God knows, so we have to keep on waiting until our time comes, until the time we chose for us to be reunited again in Heaven, so keep on Pressing on my sister, we all have to do that, no choice. My sister Verna, I am so glad your sister is getting better, please tell her she is part of our family now. Vicky please print the prayers for your mom and dad, they need you right now so forget about past feelings and start all over again, it is never too late, and be sure we will all pray for them. My sisters, please say a prayer for our dear sister Sandy, she lost one of her best friend, well like a sister, and she is going through a lot of pain, lets storm Heaven for her and her friend's family and children. I love you all my sisters. Selva

Hello to all the Angel Moms, I have not been doing very well for the last few weeks, I have been trying to get back to working, but Iam not staying very busy. I sell Real Estate so there isn't to much going on right now. My friend just found out that a very good friend of hers daughter was killed in a car accident age 19. My friend lost her son on July 5, 2003 same day my Nick went to heaven. So she is having a difficult time right now. I ask that everyone pray for her. Her name is Juanita. I haven't been able to reach her so I believe she is in Georgia with her friend helping her deal with her loss of her daughter. I miss my dear Nicholas so much. Michael and I was laying in bed and Michael asked me will Nick get presents for X-MAS. I told him no, he said they don't have X-MAS where Nick is, I said yes they just celebrate it differently then we do. It is so hard for me to try to explain to Michael he is only 6.
Lots of prayers & hugs to everyone.

Dear Billie, ~ I am sorry to read of your friend's loss of her son, and of her friend's loss of her daughter. They and their families will be in our prayers as you and your family are. Right now, it may seen that no one could live with such pain; I know for a fact that no one knows that our kind of pain exists, other than God and those who have experienced the pain of losing a child. A few post back, our dear Sandy mentioned the name of a book which I know would be of help and comfort to your son, and you, too! The name of the book is Freddie the Leaf, and I recommend it highly. I bought it just last week for my grandson, who is dealing with the loss of James' dad. James is my grandson's stepfather, but father in every sense of the word. Steven, my grandson, is only nine years old, but very sensitive, and will talk to us about his inner most feelings. He told his mom that he felt very sad about losing his grandfather, and that sometimes when he is alone, he cries. So, I bought the book Freddie the Leaf, autographed it with my own special words, and taped a fallen autumn leaf from an oak tree in our yard. So maybe if you get the book for him, it will somehow help him better understand and deal with his pain and loss on his level.
God's peace and blessings,
Verna

My dear sister, Selva, ~ Thank you for letting us know about Sandy's loss. My heart is heavy with sadness for her, and her friend's family. I know this friend was very close to her heart, so she is in deep valley time. I join you and our other angel mom and dads in prayer for our dear Sandy, and we will ask God to wrap His loving arms around all of them and comfort them as only He can, at this painful, and difficult time. Yvonne, if you are reading this, I ask that you post one of your beautiful prayers for our Sandy and her friends family. The one you posted the other day I made copies of to share with my nephew, my sister's son, who is also pastor of our church. I often give him things to share with our church family. Your faith is so very strong, I just know a prayer from you will help our Sandy to deal with yet another loss. Thanks Yvonne.
Selva, my sister, I am feeling Sandy's pain right now, but I don't mind, because it is my fondest wish that it will lighten the pain that she and her friend's family are going through right now! Love to all... And I will try to get back on later today or tonight. Sister is still impoving, thanks to all for your prayers!
Love & Hugs,
Verna

Hi my dear Angel sisters, yes Sandy needs our prayers, she is such a brave lady, imagine her friend was in the same funeral home and in the same room than Shane, she really had to be so strong to go there, I really admire her, and yes please let us all pray for our sister, she is in valley days, and we have to ask God to hold her in His arms and give them comfort and hope. Love you Selva

Hi Billie, I am so sorry about your friends loss, yes we understand and so do you, please keep coming back here and cry and get angry and curse if you must, we all understand those feelings, I have a punching bag in the backyard and at least 3 times a week I go on and punch it like crazy, it is a way to relieve my anger. Michael will understand in his own time, children always adapt, Thank God, and he will start to adapt and understand in his own little way. Hang on my dear sister, that is what we are all doing, and be thankful you still have Michael, see there are some of us who have no one else, Solange was my only daughter, so I could never be a grandma, or a mother in law, or a mother, well I will always be a mother to my Solange, and when God decides that it is my turn, I will be with Solange again, OH what a reunion, that its whats keeps me going, so hang in there Billie, and for sure we will pray for you and your friends. Love Selva

Dear Angel Moms, ~ I need a favor! :) As you know my computer skills are very limited when I am using my own computer at home in Louisiana. Now that I am out here, I am at a loss on finding out how to send and receive mail. I have sent emails to all but am not sure they got through. Nor am I sure that mail is getting through to me. So if you will, try sending me an email at cpbootsy@earthlink.com. In the subject area, write: attention LOVE2U. That way, I will know it is from one of you. I really miss sending and receiving the fwd pages that are always so uplifting! :) Hope everyone is accepting God's blessings & feeling a measure of peace as only He can give.

My dear Sandy, ~ I held off posting to you directly because I knew you would be taking some time off. I only learned about your friend accidently by reading one of Selva's post. I was so very sorry to read about your loss. My heartfelt prayers are with you and family, and with your friend's family also. Please know that I am here for you, and will help hold the fort until you return. I pray that God will be with all of you during this sad time.

Hello to all my Angel Moms and dear friends, thank you to all for your kind words, thoughts and most of all prayers during the recent passing of my dear friend Dawn. I know that everyone's prayers helped me during a very difficult time yet again, my love to you all! Whatever would I do without you all, and Selva my sister and my dear Miss V, thank you SO much again for looking after the Circle as you both lovingly do, big *kisses* and *Hugs* to you both! It was hard enough losing Dawn, but then when I found out she was going to be waked at the same Funeral Home that we had Shane waked at, I didn't know how I was going to do it. And then when Palmer and I went for the visitation, we discovered that she was in Suite 1, as they call it, the same room that Shane had been in, well, I can only say that Our dear Lord as well as the prayers said for me, enabled me to be strong enough to go through with it, otherwise I know I couldn't have. I will miss her so much in my life, but now the emphasis is on her dear children. Her daughter Tanya brought the 2 youngest boys over for a visit this morning, it was so terrific to see them, they seem alright, they are surrounded by love, and I know that Dawn is still looking after them. May God bless you all, love you all dearly, and my prayers are always with each and everyone of you,
Lots of love & Angel Hugs,
Sandy

My dear Miss V, I received a short e-mail from you and now I know WHY it came from another address! I thought perhaps your comp. was broken, or AOL was giving you problems again, but you're visiting your sister, hurray, I sent you a short e-mail, but in the subject line I put "Miss V" - hopefully your sister will know it's for you, :).
Have a terrific time, and say hello to your sister for me, I pray her health is much better, and you behave yourself out there now, :)
Much love & HUGS,
Sandy

Hi my dear sister, you know I didn't forget you and sweet Solange on the 15th, while I was praying for my Shane on that day I said extra prayers for you and Solange too, I know what a hard day it still is for you, but you have all of us and our love and support on the days you're especially feeling down.
Thanks again my dear sister for helping to hold down the 'fort', your loving posts to all and Miss V's are full of wisdom and your own special brand of love and support. How are you doing lately?
Lots of love & Angel Hugs,

Hi dear Billie, I'm sorry to read about your friends and their losses, you know without a doubt they will be prayed for, and you too, sweetie, we know you're in a lot of pain and grief right now over Nick. Hope you buy the book, or perhaps borrow it from the Library, it's helped to explain death to a lot of young children, and I know it'll help your precious Michael, much love and prayers to you dear Billie,

Hi my dear sister Sandy. It is so great to see you are posting again, I'm so glad they brought the children to your house, I am sure they will be OK, and Thank God that their sister is giving them so much love, Bless her for that, I am also Dawn will be always with them.Hi miss V, I pray that your sister is getting much better by now, were you able to convince her to go to Louisiana?, please take care of yourself also, remember all of your sisters need you too. My brother just left and my sister went out, I am taping the cassettes I bought at Omega about the Soul Encounters workshop for my co worker whose husband was diagnosed (and operated on) for brain cancer. Dr. Brian Weiss is such a terrific human being, he also lost a child just like Dr. Raymond Moody so they know of our pain, but they have such a tremendous knowledge about Life after Life that when you try to deal with it the same way they do, it makes you more knowlegable about Death, and I am convinced that it is just going to another place, you just don't die, the spirit and the soul are eternal, and I am sure we will meet our children again, I asked him during the workshop that if he tought that I could find some help during "regression" that is what he does, and he explained, that yes, if I went back and found out that Solange was part of my family many years ago, I will find some relief thinking that we will be together again, and he explained that Solange did not die, it is like she just went to another place like Iowa (his words) and yes we will be together again, and yes she can see me even if I can not see her, but she is not gone from my life, then he went on explaining about Life after Life just like Dr. Moody and it really makes you feel much better. I will be watching to World Series tonight, the Fla Marlins won last night to the mighty NY Yankees, so Miami is rocking, you should see the crowds, the city is really happy., there is Marlins Mania all over, and it is nice, we needed that. love you my sisters.

Yes, my sister, after being away all week, I thought I'd better check in, but you and Verna helped out so much, I didn't have to worry!
Oh, it was wonderful to see the boys, they didn't mention their Mom and we didn't bring it up, they were excited over some new games that Tanya their sister had bought them, and of course had to tell us all about them, :-), I don't think the reality of their Mom's death has set in yet, and yes, Praise God they are surrounded by love and we're all praying that Tanya gets to keep them. Ah, I hope your co-worker's husband is doing better, and they were able to remove all the cancer.
Yes, death is only of the physical body, we don't die, our souls, spirits, are Eternal, and I believe also that our children can see us, see what's going on, and one day we will be reunited with them, oh Glorious Day!
Oh yes, I bet you're happy the Marlins made it to the play-offs, should be a good series, and I can just imagine how happy the fans are in Miami! Enjoy the game, hope the hometown team wins for you, :-)
Lots of love & Angel Hugs,
Sandy

My heart goes out to you, and all who have lost their children. My brothers daughter was murdered at the age of 13 a year ago, and I feel devastated for them, I cannot imagine losing a child, my heart and prayers are with all who have had to endure this horrible loss. May God Bless every one,

Dear Safenest ~ My heart goes out to your neice's parents, to you, and your entire family. I am so sorry to read of the tragic loss of your precious neice. I lost my daughter tragically 7 years ago, and I can tell you, there is no greater pain. Make no mistake about it, parents feel their loss every day. In time, they will learn how to live with the grief as it begins to settle in, and is not so intense; but it will always be a quiet sadness in their hearts. It helps to know that others care, even though they themselves have not lost a child, but have compassion for those of us who have. You may be sure we will include your brother and his family in our heartfelt prayers. It may also help to tell the parents of our prayer circle and have them visit and read some of the many post, even if they don't feel up to sharing their story yet. It may help them to know that they are not alone, and that many angel moms & dads are praying for them now. Thanks again for your post & May God richly bless you in whatever way that you need.
LOVE2U,
Verna

Dear SAFENEST, thank you for your prayers, yes it is the most difficult pain there is, and it is a ver hard thing to overcome, but with the help of God and the understanding of all these Angel sister, we manage to go on, a day at a time, I am so sorry about your niece, and also your brother and his wife, I know what they are going through, if you tell them about this Circle it will help them, believe me, it has helped me so much, they will find a lot of understanding which is so important, and most of all they will find Love. Thank you for your post. Love Selva

Hi my dear Angel sisters. Well I have one bad news and 2 good news. The bad news is that the Marlins lost last night, the other good news, one is that we will win tomorrow, and the other one is that: remember when I was going nuts trying to get in touch with Solange's recipient (Don) and his mother Evelyn and that we finally did with the help of that Angel who was at the Library?, well I sent e mails to Fort Myers's realtors (she is a realtor), and their local newspaper, and of course I had to explain why I was trying to located them, otherwise they will not pay attention, well, I received a phone call today from one of the columnist of the newspaper in Fort Myers, she said she received one of my e mails and she was waiting for (?) the right time to call me etc etc, and she asked me if she would write a story maybe she could help me find them, so I explained that they already found me etc etc, so she asked me how and I explained, well she was in tears after hearing the whole story, so she decided to publish the story, she got in touch with them (I gave her his name) because I asked her that only if they will agree to publish their name etc, to make a long story short, she will publish it this weekend, I am sending Solange's picture, they will take a picture of Don and Evelyn and even if I told her I don't have any picture of myself, she will send a photographer to take mine, anyway, a lot of people will know what a beautiful Angel my daughter is, and also make them aware of how important is to talk to the family about donating organs etc. I feel so glad for it. Love you my sisters. Selva

My dear sister, ~ My eyes are filled with tears of joy! I cannot wait to tell my sister and everyone about what has happened because of your efforts and your beautiful Solange's generosity! You see, this is a prime example of how God helps us to turn a tragic situation into triumph. Now, your Solange will begin to receive the rewards that are due, because of her desire to help others. All because you did not give up! I can imagine how very happy this makes both you and her recipients. This may also open the door for others to come forward and show their appreciation for the gift of life she has given to them, and also, other recipients may realize how important it is that they do so to the family of their donors. How wonderful, my dear sister, and you know all of us angel moms will be waiting for our copy of the article when it is finished. This really makes my day! You see, God knows! And, you better believe He cares! Keep holding on my sister. Remember my post to you ... Don't you dare give up! Cause, God "Ain't" through with you, yet! :) And, get this ... You may make it to Oprah before I do! :) I will try to get the word to her, I promise, because this is for a very important cause that affects so many, many lives! Then to, it will bring an awareness to others of how important it is to become a donor. In our state, it is very easy. Residents can sign up when they receive or renew their driver's license. I am sure there are many other ways, but I know of that way because that is what I did. I wish you well, my dear sister, and God bless you and your big giving and loving heart! You do your beautiful Solange PROUD! Keep holding on, my dear sister!!! Remember the dream I told you about? :)
Much love & Angel Hugs from Solange and all our guardian angels! I am sure they will throw her a big party & celebrate big time because she is so proud of her mom!

Verna

My dear sister, ... ~ No, it won't stop the pain, and you will always miss your beautiful Solange. And, if given a choice, you would choose to have your Solange back with you in the physical. I, too, would give anything to have my Diane back. And, so would any angel mom or dad. But, unfortunately, we were not given a choice in the matter. But, even as we grieve, we can make a difference in the lives of others, and in our own lives. This way, not only do we help others, we pay tribute to our beloved angel kids by making sure the world know just how much they will always mean to us. As our dear Sandy reminds us, when a mom loses a beloved child, a part of her goes with that child. We who have lost a child/children, know just how true that statement is. That part of us that remains, can find a measure of peace, and many, many reasons to go on ... In spite of the neverending grief, sadness that is a part of our lives now! As you have just proven, ... We can still find a measure of joy in life, as we continue on our grief journey! Again, my dear sister, we all are Soooo proud of you and your beautiful Solange! I will continue to pray that God will continue to use you to do His work, and that He will give you those precious moments of peace for which we all pray!
Love & TenderBearHugs & AngelHugs,
Verna
