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 Everyone, ~ I just wanted to check in to say I love you and I hope you and family will have a very blessed Easter! My niece, Felecia, had her treatment today and we are still trusting that it is God's will to heal her. We know it's all in His hands, and we are prepared to accept His will for her. I thank God for each of my family members and friends each and everyday, because we never know when our work here will be done, according to God's divine plan. Sometimes, we leave this old world suddenly and without warning, with many tasks left undone. Having said that, ... I would like to ask for prayers for a family here in Shreveport who lost their loved one, ... A beautiful young lady, whom I did not know, but I can certainly relate to their pain. So much so, until I have been deeply saddened by the whole ordeal. The young lady was killed Saturday in a tragic accident as she turned out of a neighborhood and was hit by an oncoming car. She was only 17 years old. She was said to be talking with her mother on her cell phone when the wreck happened, God love her. The driver of the other vehicle was taken to the hospital. According to the news article, after his release, he will face charges of DWI, and vehicular homicide and improper lane usage. The area where the wreck happened is not very far from where Diane was killed. All day today, I couldn't help but morn for this precious child, her family and many friends. I have DUI meeting Tuesday, so with this being fresh on my mind, I'm asking that you keep me in your prayers also. I will be sharing this tragic story along with my own personal story. I am just so tired of the fact that so many grownups still take a chance and drive while under the influence. It also breaks my heart that our youngsters don't realize that it CAN happen to them! Forgive me, angel moms, but I just had to get some of this off my chest; or at least try too! :( Then too, having lost a brother to a hit and run driver the night before Easter, it's always a little sad for me during this time. But, with prayer, and God's help, this too shall pass!

Cin, ... I'm glad you liked the card and letter I sent to your beloved Krissy. My thoughts and love and prayers were with you all day today, and I even asked God to give me some of your sadness to help you make it through your Krissy's birthday!
Love & Angel Hugs to all. I promise to post again soon when I am not feeling so emotional.
Love & Angel Hugs,

I don't go there often, ... But, I think I'm missing MaDear & my brother Charles a whole lot, too! It really makes a difference when you have someone to talk to who understands how these valley days can come at you out of left field! :) Thanks, for allowing me to unload,angel moms!

4/7/2004 14:35

Our dear Miss V, you can unload here anytime, you know that! I'm sorry to hear about that young girl, God bless her family, they're going to need a lot of support and love as we know all too well. We had our own accident in the City a week ago, 4 teen's in a car, accident, three died, and unfortunately alcohol was involved. The stats here in Canada are very hopeful though, DUI is down, so the message is getting through. Not totally, but there's always going to be some people who think they're sober enough to drive, unfortuantely.
Glad to get your up-date on Felicia Kaye, our prayers are with her still.
You're having your own bout with Valley Days, Easter naturally bringing up sad memories for you with your brother, and missing your MaDear, yes, it will pass, but shed those tears that need to be let out! Our love and prayers are always with you, and you post again if you're having a hard time with it all, we're always here to support, love each other, aren't we!
Much love & Angel Hugs,

Hi my dear sister Verna. Thanks for the update on Felecia, yes we know that he is in His Hands, lets pray that she will get better soon if He decides it. I'm so sorry you are going through valley days, and you don't have to thank anybody (well me) for allowing you to onload, that is why we are all here for. Toy have been through so much my dear sister, of course you need Ma Dear and Charles, but remember they are there with you, and they understand your pain. I feel so bad for the little girl and her parents, unfortunately this is an ongoing thing here in Miami, just this morning there was a terrbile accident near where the accident that took my little girl, there were 3 girls in the car, one of them died and the other 2 are critical. I decided it not to watch the news anymore, it is so sad. We will pray for you my dear sister, and for Felecia and for the poor family of the girl. Please come back whenever you can we will be here praying and listening. Love you my dear sister and give a big kiss to our grandson. Selva

4/7/2004 15:31

Dear sister Donna. I know that you might be offline, but just to let you know our prayers are with you specially today. I am sure Mikey is with all our Angel kids, looking down at you and giving you strenght. I can't wait until you get in line again my dear sister, we miss you. Love and may God Bless you. Selva

Good Morning my dear sisters! ~ I had good nights sleep and woke up feeling my old self again. I told hubby I couldn't believe how much better I felt. He smiled and said, "Yea, I know, ... And, just think, you could feel like that everyday, 'IF' you would go to bed at night!" :) I just looked the other way and smiled, 'cause he KNOWS that will never be! Ha-ha! Well, ... Maybe every now and then. I've always been a night owl since college days; especially when I lived on campus. And, I believe all dedicated teachers do overtime. But, after losing Diane, I always wake up around the same time that he woke me up to tell me the sad news. A grief counselor once told me that a lot of moms have experienced the same thing. I have talked with other angel moms in a support group that I used to attend, and many of them said that they went through the same thing. Fortunately, now that I am retired, I do get to make up the loss during the day, but naturally it is not the same. But, I find lately I am doing much better; that is, ... When I remember to take the med. early enough, that helps me to sleep. I think I just dislike taking the meds! :)

4/9/2004 10:08

Yea, ... I know, I don't have to thank you, my sisters, for being there for me; but there are times when I feel Soooo very grateful for having all of you in my life, I just can't help letting you know. :) When I think of the many days and nights following my loss, when I had no one to talk to that truly understood, I am amazed that I made it through those most difficult times! I know every angel mom has gone through or will eventually go through those times when it seems that everyone else has moved on, and assumes that you have too. That was a most difficult time for me. And, sometimes, even now, after more than seven years, I find myself feeling the pain of those difficult days. When I do, thankfully, I can come here and as the old saying goes, "Let it all out." :) And, oh what a relief it is! I think that's the wonderful thing about prayer/support groups; We always know that it's OK to express exactly how we are feeling at any given time. I've read and I fully agree that grief has no timetable. And, as Rabbi Kushner points out in his book: When Bad Things Happen To Good People; People are God's language. :) That is; God send us the help and support we need through others who can relate to what we are going through. Praise God! So, when I say thank you, I am also saying, "Thank You, God, for bringing us together to support each other with love and compassion; especially on those valley days!"

4/9/2004 10:09

We are still thanking God for Felecia having another good day. Unfortunately, she had a fall while using the restroom at the clinic, Tuesday. The nurse's aids were not aware of how weak she still is. Plus, the meds the doctor has her on to prevent seizures was making her so drossy. She was not hurt seriously, but her left arm was swollen above the elbow. Her doctor has reduced the amount of meds she takes for seizures, and yesterday, she was smiling and much more alert when her mom and brother went back to pick her up from the clinic. So we are thanking God for the continued answering of our prayers. I went with them to take her to the clinic, and stayed with her yesterday afternoon while my sister took little Ashley to the beauty shop. She took her meds without coaching, and even told me it was OK for me to go back home to get my Wendy's Cheese Burger that I forgot and left on the counter while rushing to get around there! Ha-ha! Yea, I know, ... Not on my diabetic menu! But, it sure was delicious! Maybe that's why I slept so good last night! :) Anyway, thanking God for another good day. Felecia has a bell on her serving tray that she rings for service. Like me, her dad is also hard of hearing. So, before leaving her room, to go eat my cheeseburger, ... I told her that if she needed anything, to just throw the bell across the room and one of us would surely hear it hit the wall. Ha-ha! She laughed so, she was in tears! :)
Helloooooo, my dear sister! Your grandson sends his love, and says he will write to you soon. They are out of school today, [Good Friday] so he may do so today. He and his mom, Cheryl, have invited me over to play games with them today.
Of course you both know that I will be praying for the victims and their families that were involved in the tragic accidents. Yes, sad indeed, and we always grieve the losses because we understand and can relate to the family's grief and pain. And, it always good news when we can see an improvement in DUI data. I haven't checked our ratings for our state lately, but will do so this weekend for sure. Unfortunately, at our last MADD-VIP meeting, we had a full house. But, the forms they fill out indicate that hearing our stories have made a difference and opened their eyes to what could happen. So, we continue to pray and hope for the best.
Well, I've enjoyed my visit, and here's wishing everyone a very happy and blessed Easter!
Love & Angel Hugs,

4/9/2004 10:28

Hello my dear fellow AngelMoms, Sisters,

I wish all of you a very Blessed, Joyful Easter, filled with peace, a peace that will soothe all aching hearts here at this Circle of Love. It's another Holiday without our child present with us, and I know the day will be very difficult for some. Mark the day in whatever way is most comfortable for you, to help ease the pain.

There is also a Global Candle Lighting Service tomorrow at 5pm your time, light a Candle for your child, another loved one who has passed, a pet you may have lost, and may we all join together to pray for World peace which is sorely needed at this time.

This little light of mine,
I'm going to let it shine,
This little light of mine,
I'm going to let it shine,
Let it shine, Let it shine!

God's blessing's to you all, my heart, love and prayers for all,
Love & Angel Hugs,

My son, Trinity J. was hit and killed by a passing vehicle and he was walking home from a bar last year. All the evidence is now being put together and they are not coming up with the witnesses they need to prove the driver was at fault. I need all your prayers that witnesses come forth and this is not left open. My son left behind two beautiful children that need to be raised with all the help possible. All I ask is for the truth to come out. The attorney's will be getting together this coming week, and I believe only GOD and prayer will bring out the truth. Thank-you!

4/12/2004 16:28

Yes, of course we'll pray for the Light to penetrate the darkness and the truth will prevail,

Our hearts, prayers and support are with you, please post here anytime, this is a Circle of Love, with each of us supporting and loving each other through the worst pain a Parent will ever experience, so please feel free to post here anytime, there is so much loving support here!

4/13/2004 13:52

Hi dear AngelMoms, Dads, how did your Easter go, was it a very hard day or a little easier for you? We spent it quietly at home, just Palmer and myself, Chris had to work over the weekend, his Company has outgrown their office space so they used this opportunity to move to a larger space in the same bldg. I cooked a small Ham, just enough for us and a sandwich the next day, :-) and yum, fresh asparagus. I love veggies, except Lima Beans, aahh, just don't enjoy them, :-)
We were mindful once again that there was an empty chair, Holiday's just aren't what they used to be. His peace and Blessing to you all,
Lots of love & Angel Hugs,

My prayers are with you doing this time of sadness..I recently lost my 18 yr old son Jesse..someone shot him..

4/14/2004 22:58

Oh dreamshadow, I am so, so, sorry, your heart has to be broken in two right now, losing your precious Jesse, and by the hand's of another. Losing a child is THE worst pain a Mom, Dad, will ever go through. And it's just happened recently for you, I know you must be in so much pain, confusion, and shock, God bless you dear one. How long ago was it that you lost your dear Jesse? My heart goes out to you, I know you must be in 24/7 pain right now. It's a nightmare come true when you lose one of your precious children, all of us here know firsthand of that nightmare. We share in your pain and all consuming grief here, the best advice any of us can give you is to let it out, cry, scream, vent, this Circle of Love is a very safe place to do just that. Your loss of your son Jesse is uniquely your own, but we all seem to share the same emotions, feelings, thoughts, anger, etc., so please post back here, there's never any judging, you can safely say exactly how you feel and you'll be honored for your feeling's, we're all here to support and love each other through this pain of pain's. So please feel free to post back and tell us about your Jesse, and how you're feeling, we all care, and want to hear your story. God bless you dear Mother of Jesse, and know our heart, love and prayers are always with you, we're all in this as one,
Much love, prayers, & Angel Hugs,

4/15/2004 23:43

Dear God in heaven, ~ Please hear my humble prayer. I pray that You would wrap Your loving arms around Sharon Lee and her entire family and bring them through another of life's many storms. Father, we know that with You, all things are possible. Please, God, keep this entire family in Your loving care! In Jesus' name I pray, Amen

4/16/2004 00:12

Dear Father, ~ Please hear my humble prayer. I pray that You will ease the grief and pain that angel mom cu2fond1956 is experiencing over the tragic loss of her beloved son, Trinity J. Lord, only You can know the depth of her pain. I pray than You will give her the strength to endure all that she is faced with concerning the death of her son. Lord, bless the precious children he left behind. Let them know that they are loved and cherished, and that their dad is now their guardian angel and that he is watching over them each and every day. I pray that You will send them signs to let them know that their dad is always close by and that they will live forever with him when their work here is done. Lord, I ask that You will let the truth come out concerning the circumstances surrounding Trinity J.'s untimely death. Lay it on the heart of any witness to come forth, so that this precious family can try to find a measure of closure. In Jesus' name, I pray, Amen
