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 our dear Marci, I agree, much better for these tears to come out than to keep them inside, either it because Shane's Anniversary is coming up next month, or I have 'residual' pain that my subconcious is releasing in the dream state. Or is could be as simple as just plain missing my son, :-).
Good Lord yes, you, me, and every other Mom on these pages and then some! Everytime I hear of another child dying, my heart aches for the Parents, knowing what a painful Road they have ahead for themselves.
That's so sweet of you, Marci, if we ever do plan on visiting Calif., I can get some good tourist tip's from you on what to see and where to go, :-). The furthest we've been in the States are one summer where we travelled through the New England one's, beautiful, just beautiful, definitely out of a Norman Rockwell painting.
I've been using fins all along, but will now incorporate the board, thanks for the tips dear one and your love and support,
Much love & Angel Hugs,

Hello dear AngelMoms and Dads,

Our dear Miss V's niece is critically ill, she's looking after her daughter right now, and request's prayers for her niece, her name is Felicia Kay, for a healing,
Much love & Hugs to all,

Hi Angelo,
It is good to hear from you and I am glad the trial is coming to an end. I know these past 4 weeks must have been unbearable for you and your family. I imagine it is like reliving the tragedy all over again. Maybe this time though you can be at peace when it is all over. It won't bring back your Angela but maybe some comfort in knowing you've done all you can do to try and see some sort of justice. My prayers are with you today and always.

2/26/2004 10:33

Oh Miss V,
What an awful situation with your neice. I am storming heaven with prayers for her as I type. Oh, hang in there Verna....

Today is the 17 month anniversary of Aaron's passing. It is a very sad day. Tuesday is his birthday and I cannot get him off of my mind. I didn't sleep much last night at all, kept waking up every hour or so. I kept having weird dreams, that I can only remember bits and pieces of. They were not about Aaron exactly. I remember once I was standing in my old office with my boss and we heard this really loud noise. I couldn't go over to the window to look out, I just froze. Then I woke up and I couldn't determine if I dreamed it or if the noise was real. Then I just kept thinking maybe that was the sound it made when Aaron's car hit the pole??? Then in another dream, Randy and I were standing somehwere (can't remember where) and all these beautiful butterflies were swarming all around my head. I was reaching up and touching them and they were so soft and fluttery. The were so beautiful!
There were thousands of them all around me and they werent scared of me, they let me touch them. It was an awsome feeling.
Anyway, I can't believe it has been 17 months. It's weird I feel that I don't want it to be that long ago, but at the same time I want it be easier and further along. I don't know if that makes sense or not. I am scared I am going to forget things and I don't want to forget one little detail.
Love to all,

Hi my dear sister Lisa.My heart and prayers are with you, I know ecxatly how you are feeling, our ann. are only one month apart. Hang in there my sister, there is little we can do, let your pain out, that is the best way to deal with this, like Dr. Brian Weiss once told me, just think your child moved to Iowa, it is the same, she just moved to another place, so did Aaron, we will be all together again, but remember, our children are not dead, we are still their mothers, they are still our children, see love is Eternal, it can not die, they are just in a better and safer place right now, and in God's time we will see them again. I will storm Heaven for you my dear sister. Love Selva

2/27/2004 15:17

Hi my dear borther Angelo. I am glad that it is almost over, like Lisa said, it won't bring back your little girl, but you did all you can, now God will take care of the rest. Be sure our prayers are with you and your family. Good luck, my brother. Love Selva

2/27/2004 15:20

My dear dear sister Verna.Please be sure that all of us will be stroming Heaven for your neice, hang in there my dear sister, you know it is all in God's Hand, I know you must be so very busy right now, but whenever you get a chance, please keep us posted. Love and prayers for you my dear sister. Selva

Dear Angela, ~ Thanks for informing us about the outcome of the trial. I am trying to get things straight with sending email. For the last couple of days, I've been getting an error message when I try to send. Hopefully it is all straighten out. Don't know if you got my response to your email or not. If not, I will try sending again. I also received the lovely card via snail mail. Thanks so much for everything.
Love & Hugs,

Dear Angelo, ~ I am so glad that you and your precious little angel Angela, & the rest of your dear family and friends can finally find a measure of closure. I will continue to pray that God will bless you all and give you precious moments of peace. May our Lord and Savior continue to watch over you and yours.
Love & Angel Hugs,

Dear All, ~ Thank you so much for praying for my niece. She is out of intensive care, and has undergone two dialysis treatments. Also, her blood pressure is down! The past few days have been very stressful, but thank God things are looking better so far. Again, family and I thank you all for remembering us all in your prayers.
Love & Hugs,

My dear Sandy, Selva, and Cindy, ~ You all are the best! Thanks once again for all the emails and for being patient with me during this time. I will try to keep you updated on how Felecia is doing. Thanks to all for praying for my husband's condition. When he went to his doctor's appointment, test revealed that the blood clots were no longer present, praise God! If all continues to go well, he does not have to go back to the doctor to be checked again until sometime in May. So, again, I thank you for your prayers! I still have the infection in my chest, but I am taking my meds faithfully, and hope to be rid of it soon. Also, everyone, I have all but finished with my final reading and editing of my manuscript [hopefully]! I turn it in to my book project manager sometime next week. She will then read through and get back to me to let me know if we can say, "It is finished!" If all goes well, the next step is copyright, then we begin to look for a sponsor and check out grants locally to fund the publishing cost. So, keep praying, my sisters & brother, and maybe it will come to past. Oh, by the way, my sister, Selva ... If I do get published, I am going to let you and my Cheryl go to the Oprah show, because Yo Miss V. is afraid to fly! Ha-ha! One bad flight, and that was it for me! The year was 1975: MaDear and I were returning from attending my oldest brother's funeral which was held in Los Angeles. We were on one of those big 747 Delta flights and they ran into some turbulence; a very frightening experience for me. I remember praying and promising God that if He allowed the plane to land safely, He would not have to worry about me being caught up in the air again until He calls me home! Ha-ha! So unless Oprah plans on coming to Shreveport, you or Cheryl or Sandy or somebody will have to go and represent me. Ha-ha! And, as one of our former local news commentator, Sharon Frame, use say after doing a live interview ... "And, that's a rap!" :) On that joyful note, I'll say ...
Love & Hugs to All,
[Yo Miss V.]

Dear Marci, ~ Thank you for your kind words. I brings joy to my heart just to know that I have said something to help encourage a bereaved parent who is just beginning to learn how to cope with such indescribable grief as that of losing a child. We never get over it, but with lots of love, compassion, support and prayers, we do learn very slowly ... one hour, one day at a time to press on. The one thing that continues to help me on my journey is the sharing and caring and support that we know we can always depend on here in our circle of love. Actually, I feel a closer connection here among other angel moms and angel dad, Angelo, than I do with friend and family I have known most of my life. I guess it's the knowing that everyone here can relate to what it's really like to have lost a child. I feel so blessed that God has given me a safe place to express whatever I am feeling on any given day or night. As I have stated many, many times in previous posts, I know it was God who saw to me finding this circle of love. When I knew anything, I was here! Other moms have had that same experience. :) As Sandy reminds us, our God is good to us angel moms and dads too. :) My constant prayer is that you and the other angel moms will continue to come here often, even on days when you don't feel up to posting your feelings. Sometimes, when I revisit my deep pain, I will come here and read for hours, and let the tears flow! I find that sharing another moms pain, somehow helps me to let go of some of my own pain that I still need to release. I think is the open sharing of how we are feeling on any given day that keeps me going during the times when I can't post for whatever the reason. So, again, I thank God for giving me the opportunity to post whenever I can, and for each and everyone who visit, and read these pages in our circle of love.
Love & Angel Hugs,

2/29/2004 10:21

I am so relieved for you that justice is finally being served. Many prayers for you and your family to find some sort of peace with the judgement. Post when you get back home and let us know how you are doing. Peace be with you!

2/29/2004 10:22

Thanks so much for keeping us updated on Angelo's trial. You are a blessing in disguise!

2/29/2004 10:24

You haven't posted in a couple of days and that is not like you....are you ok? Maybe you are on a short vacation and can't get to a computer? My thoughts are with you wherever you can't hide! lol No, really I truly hope you are ok and just taking a well deserved break.

2/29/2004 15:52

Hi my dear dear sister Verna, how great to see you posting and knowing that your neice its doing better, we will keep Storming Heaven for her full recovery, it really works, did you see Angelo's e mail, our prayers did work, please keep us posted and PLEASE take care of yourself, now your hubby is doing better so it is your turn, don't overdo it remember I am keeping an eye on you. Guess what when that book is finished I PROMISE, I will get Oprah to go to your house, even if I have to go and speak to her personally (when I want something I really work on it)I am sure you know that, after getting in contact with Solange's recipients, everybody told me it could not be, and I did it, everything is posible when you really get your mind and body to it. Love you dearly my sister. Selva

2/29/2004 16:00

Hi my dear sister Marci. I am sorry I have not been able to post more often, my sister uses the computer where we have the net, to do the taxes, we are accountants and this is our busiest time.Please my sister, you know our prayers are with you and yours, but besides prayers, what can we do to help you? please be honest, we are all a family here and we are all (I am sure) be willing to help in any situation, let your pain and fears out. I have not been able to go back to read the posts, I will try, but now, how can we help? please my dear sister, remember you have an extra family here who are willing to help, not only in prayers, even though that is the strongest way we can do. You are not alone my dear sister, you have our Circle of Love family here to help. God Bless you. Love Selva

2/29/2004 17:19

Hello all my dear AngelMoms, my sisters, I've had a very busy weekend, and am now just able to post! First I had to go through all my e-mail, and then of course here, I've missed you all, and yep dear Lisa, you found me, ha, ha!
Our dear Pretty Bird, AngelMom Sharon, it's wonderful to see a post from you, my heart aches so much for you dear one, you've not only lost your precious Benji but so much else at once, and then Sean's accident, and now your daughter's illness, my love and prayers are always with you and please post, you know we're here for you on good days or bad one's. You ALWAYS have our unconditional love!

AngelDad Angelo, well, I wrote you, you know how happy I am for you and your family that this trial is finally over, it's finally a Chapter closed for you and now you can grieve for your sweet Angela in a better way, my love and prayers to you too, dear AngelDad!

Yes Ang, thank's so much for the e-mail about our dear Angelo, what a beautiful webpage you've made for him, God bless you, love and prayers to you too dear one!

Our dear Miss V, what great news! I'm thrilled to know that your dear niece is coming along, and that your dear hubby doesn't have any blood clots, thank You Lord for hearing all prayers said for our dear Miss V's family - what an awesome God that we love and serve! It'd have to be Rue and Selva going on the Oprah show, :-) I'd be frozen in fright just at the mere thought of being on tv! Seriously though, your 'labour of love' is now done, and I wish you all the best from my heart to your's with your book!

My dear sister, haven't heard from you, hope your feeling a little better physically and your valley days are a little lighter, my love and prayers are always with you too!

Lisa, Palmer and I went to see THE MOVIE last night, profound, deeply profound, I very seldom if ever watch a movie twice, but I'm definitely going back to see this one, there is just SO much to take in, it's still in my heart today, hope you got a chance to see it, if you didn't over the weekend, I would strongly urge anyone of any Belief system to see it, just for the fact that we can all strongly identify with Our Blessed Mother (I'm RC) - Mary, and her intense pain over losing her Son.

My stomach is yelling 'feed me', :-) but I wanted to touch base with you all, all of you are so special and all are always in my love and prayers,
Much love & lots of {{Hugs}},
