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.

Dear Shane,
My what a wonderful young man you are and how your parents and brother miss you, I am quite sure you have met my daddy, John H. Berry and are friends. Your mother has a cold and now I need you to go down and tap her on the shoulder so she will call the doc. Your parents and I have become great friends, we have laughed and cried, worried and rejoiced over the past four years. Your mom is the sister I never had, she is a sweetie and I love her dearly. Your dad is much like my daddy, he likes to "embellish" the stories he tells, it's hard to know just whether he is kidding me or serious. Isn't it strange that people who met or somehow come together as the result of loosing someone so special find another person that is a comfort and help to fill the void left. When I think of you I think of a gentle, soft young man much like a gentle wind or a butterfly, when I am out walking often I feel as if we speak. I do need your help, so once again I ask you to tap mom on the shoulder and whisper in her ear, "call the doc, cause you know that pesky person from Philly will be calling tonight and I love you"...Thanks, Shane From, Ann

Love ya bunches,

Hello my dear sisters, AngelDad's,

Our dear sister Selva need's our help today, her 'second mother', is close to death, and she's probably at the hospital right now with her, her name is Mercedes, I knew you would all want to know, so we can pray for Mercedes and especially our dear sister, as well as Nancy and their brother,
Much love & lots of Angel Hugs,

Hi Ann, welcome to our Circle of Love, indeed that is just a beautiful post for our dear Angel Shane. I also want to thank you for letting us know that Sandy is sick. I knew something was wrong when she does not post and send e mails as often, OH yes, now we are going to nagg her along with Shane, Sandy you HAVE TO GO TO THE DOCTOR, you HAVE to take care of yourself, no excuses, my dear sister, why you did not mentioned it, you are sick and asking for prayers for me. Please please my sister, you take care of that cold. My second mother, Mercedes, is still in intensive care, but she is a fighter, I am so proud of her, she does not looks her age, she always took good care of herself, always with makeup and all, but now she is so weak, still smiling, see , Antonio (her husband) and her have been married for 58 years, he used to be so handsome, well he still is, he is from Spain and came to Cuba when he was 19, saw Mercedes and fell in love, they got married and only after Castro, they left Cuba to NY there is when I met them, I was 15 at the time and so alone, Tony their son was 14, we became brother and sister, we used to rent a "room" each in this apartment, their room was next to mine, so they took care of me like a daughter. I pray that she will get over this, I am affraid Antonio will not survive the loss. But like I said, she is hanging on, and has improved since yesterday. Thank you my sisters for your prayers, God is so good to us. Now I have to request another prayer, my good friend Ingrid needs our prayers, Larry her hudband passed on today, he was only 54, they have 2 boys, 24 and 21 still living at home, see all of our kids have grown up together, we have been working together for the last 23 years, so it is like a family.. Thank you for your prayers. Love Selva

4/22/2004 22:31

Hello my sister, ~ I am so very sorry to read about your friend, Ingrid, losing her dear beloved husband, Larry today. Her grief has to be so very great right now. You, my sister, are an earth angel for being there and supporting them both, through it all, with your love, compassion, and understanding. We know, all too well, that God sometimes decides to give our loved ones the ultimate healing and bring them back home to heaven. Knowing this it does not stop the pain and loss that we feel, in our torn and shattered hearts, when they cross over. :( Though each crossing over is, in itself, unique ... Just as grief is, we can still relate to each others pain and loss. So, we offer our love and support in any way that we can. Prayer, is such a powerful resource. Even though we don't always recognize or feel its effects, we eventually realize its power. I will definitely continue to pray to our Father, God, to give your friend, Ingrid, all the love and support that she needs during her loss. As the Rabbi shares in his book; ... People are God's language. May God receive her loved one into the kingdom, and at the same time, wrap His loving arms around Ingrid, her family & friends, and comfort all in every way. God bless you, my sister, for being there for her.

Also, my sister, I will keep your dear and beloved second mother, Mercedes, and her devoted husband, Antonio, in my heartfelt prayers. May God continue to bless you, too, my sister with the big caring and loving heart! Your beautiful Solange must be so very proud of you! I know all angel moms/dads are! :) What a prayer warrior and grief counselor you have become! :) Still reaching out to others, even as you grieve. As I have said many times, ... Don't you dare give up! Because "God [ain't] through with you, yet! :)
Love & Angel Hugs,

4/22/2004 22:37

Angel moms, I'll be back on later tonight to copy/paste a post that I've been working on as time permits. I have an errand to run right now. Sandy, ... "I'm telling Cindy on you! :) Just kidding, but you had better take care of that cold, or I'm telling! Ha-ha!
Love & Angel Hugs,
Miss V.

4/23/2004 01:43

Selva & Sandy: I'm praying for you both, and for Mercedes. Sandy, please do as you're told and go to the doctor. Much love to both of you.
Krissy's Mom

4/23/2004 03:24

Dear Sandy, ~ I'm sitting here smiling, and thinking, ... Do I dare risk posting tonight after telling Cindy on you??? Ha-ha! I hope you've checked your email to see how much fun we had ganging up on you! :) Thanks, Ann, for letting us know, because you know our Sandy; She would have tried to handle this without our specific prayers for healing! :( So, thanks again for letting all of us know. I bet Shane and the other angel kids, your beloved Daddy, ... AND our Lord and Savior all had a good laugh, and are smiling down on our dear Sandy, and with the doctor's help, our Chief Angel Mom is going to get better in no time! So, Sandy, get some much needed rest, follow doctor's orders, and don't worry about posting until you are feeling better. OK? ... OK!
Much love, & Angel Hugs, and of course, we are storming heaven with prayers for healing.
Love Ya,
Miss V. & Yo extended online family! :)

PS: May you feel your Shane's presence and unconditional love!

Good morning Angelmoms!

Just a short post today to let you know that I am praying for Mercedes to heal quickly and regain her strength, and I am also praying for Ingrid who lost her beloved husband at such a young age. I pray that God the Almighty will easen her and her kids journey to acceptance and give them much needed peace of heart.
Also dear Sandy, I hope you will overcome this cold soon, it's good to have a spy here with us, who tells us how you are feeling :o)

I'll be running around most of the day with my parents today, so I hope I can check back with you soon again.

God bless you all!

4/23/2004 16:16

My son Kory left this world at age 24. I did not loose him becuause for something to be lost there is often the thought that it will not be found. My son is with my lord and savior and I to will join him when I leave this world. I had a whole in my heart when my son left this world. I was not sure it would mend and I was not sure I wanted it to. I know now that this hole was a window to see into Gods home where I long to be some day. I am glad he allowed me to look into this window. My mother has died just 8 months after my son and with her death I was able to smile and tell her I will see you in paradise. No tears or sorrow in heaven and with the lords prayer by my side I can go on in this world with no tears or sorrow and await our great reuniun. I praise God everyday for the hole I have in my heart. I praise him in Jesus name for giving his life for us.

4/24/2004 09:29

Hello our dear Sharon Lee! Oh gosh, that is wonderful news! It was really touch and go for a while, and now he's released from the hospital, and hopefully no surgery. Melissa and all of you must be so happy, not to mention him himself! That's also terrific news about your sister-in-law, Michelle, there must be a lot of rejoicing in your family! Oh yes inded, the great power of prayer and the love that know's no bound's from God, thank You Lord for all prayers answered for Sharon Lee's family. Yep, I'm sure He say's Uh-oh, here come's those AngelMom's again, :-) Just kidding, and I'm sure He's laughing with us, :-)
Thank you too for all your prayers for us, it's wonderful to know that other's are praying for each other, and that we can count on them, :-)
Much love & Angel Hugs,

Hello ozark, and welcome to the Circle!
I'm so sorry about your beloved Kory, it sound's as though you're doing very well in your grief, God bless you. That's a beautiful way of looking at it, the hole in your heart is the window for you to connect with your son, and your Mother also, and to catch a glimpse of Heaven, where they are now, and where you'll be reunited with them one day! Hold fast to that knowing, and to God, our heart and prayers are with you, post back whenever you fell like it, we're always here for each other,
Love & Angel Hugs,

Like many of you I have lost a child. I lost my first daughter she was stillborn. The thing about it is I was nine months pregnant and I was in labor and she was delivered but she was born dead. and it devated me. the doctors told me that the reason it happened is because I have an ovarian cyst and it caused it which will also cause me to never be able to have children. To God be the glory for the things he have done. I was hurt and I cried and cried for weeks I thought I was going to lose my mind. My mom always told me that a mom worse pain is to have to bury a child and I have been through that pain. I had to sit at my child furneal. I had to watch her be buried I really thought I was going to go crazy and there is nothing any one could say to make me fell better but I am saying to God be the glory for the things he have done. for he has done great things. I did not know how i was going to go on and I felt like giving up on god I questioned Lord why me why did I have to go through this no answer. I got pregnant with Darian through a rape and when I found out I was pregnant I told myself God will never put more on you than you can bare I decided to keep the baby because despite how I got pregnant she was still god gift to me.So when I lost her I really start questioning God but I got to a point where i had to remind myself that he will never put more on you than you can bare. I was 19 years old going through this but when i got tired i asked god "Lord please help me not to give up please remind me that you are still in control" and he did and he gave me peace and at the time I did not understand why I had to go through it but now i know god had to create a testimony for me. he had to show doctors that he is in control. For now I have a 6 month old baby girl name Carleigh she has ten toe ten fingers she is healthly she is my testimony then when i found out I was pregnant i went to the doctor who told me i would never have children and told him and he told me i would not make it to the 3rd trimester when i did I went back to him he told me i would not be able to deliver vaginaly i went into labor and because of me pass they talked about a c-section but i told them i wanted to try for a vaginal deliver I tried and Carleigh was born on October 27, 2003 at 7:36p.m weighting 6lbs6oun and she was a vaginal birth (hallejuah) no complications at all. CAN GOD? GOD CAN A few months after I had Carleigh I went back to the first doctor and told himshe was born vaginaly and he said "It must have been GOD" And it was . I know it hurts but god is the mender of a broken heart if you let him be. I did! Darian would be 4 years old July 21, 2004 and I still go to see her often but I go with a healed heart.

Thank God my dear sister, and remember we will keep on praying. Thanks for the update. Love Selva

4/24/2004 17:56

Hi Ozarkdays. Welcome to our Circle of Love. Yes when our child goes to Heaven, we have a very big hole in our heart, that will be there until we will meet again, your son Kory is with Our Lord and all the other Angel childs, and yes we will meet again in Heaven and this time forever. Please come back and post as often as you need, you will find all the understanding that we bereaved mother need, we all understand this pain. God Bless you. Love Selva

4/24/2004 18:02

Hi Carleighmommie. Welcome to our Circle of Love. First of all . Contratulations for Carleigh, what a joy and a blessing, yes God is always there for us. I am sure that Darian is rejoycing in Heaven for her baby sister. I am so sorry you have to go through all this pain, but finally God gave you a reward for the pain, and is your little Carleigh, and yes I am sure that Darian is well taking care of. Our Angels love little babys, she is now a little Angel of God, looking after her mom and her little sister. God Bless you, and please feel free to come back here and share how Carleigh is doing. Love Selva

4/24/2004 23:34

Hi carleighsmommie, welcome also to the Circle! Our dear sister Selva has said it best for you, I can only imagine how you felt knowing your precious Darien was stillborn, but we all know that pain, God bless you. Now you have your precious miracle baby, Carleigh, as we sometime's say, God has the final work, not the Dr.'s, and she is a loving proof of that. I'm so happy that your heart is healed of all that terrible pain, and yes, your sweet Darien is locked forever in your heart, but she is looking after her sweet Mom and little sister.
Much love & Angel Hugs,

Dear Ozarkdays, ~ Welcome to our circle of love. What a wonderful way to view your beloved son's return to heaven, and your mom's home going also. And you are right; there are no tears or sorrow in heaven and we will see all our loved ones again someday. And what a wonderful heavenly reunion that will be for all God's children. Thank you for sharing and may our Lord and Savior bless you and keep you in His care.
Love & Angel Hugs,

Dear Carleighsmommie, ~ Welcome to our circle of love and compassion. Your testimony has touched me deeply. It reminded me of how devastated I was and how deeply I grieved, and how I no longer wanted to live after losing the oldest of my two daughters. I, too, thought I was going to lose my mind. Until I lost my precious Diane, I didn't know that kind of pain even existed. Sometimes, even after all this time, (almost 8 years), there are times when it seems like I am caught up in a bad dream, and that I will wake up, and my Diane will suddenly appear. In one sense, that is how it has been for me. I still have my difficult moments of missing her physical presence. Nevertheless, God has been my source of strength through it all. I know that now, but in the early stages, I had so many questions, and feelings of guilt as to why it happened, and my faith was severely shaken. I know now, that had it not been for someone praying for me, I would not have made it through those very difficult days, months, and years. It has taken a long time to reach the level of faith I have today. Now, when I hear of someone losing a precious child, I find myself wishing that I could wrap my arms around them, and assure them that the day will come when they will begin to learn how to deal with the indescribable grief and pain, ... Even though I know they would not, could not believe it. I think when those of us who are a little farther along pray for our newly bereaved moms, as well as continue to pray for each other, we are, in a sense, giving each other spiritual hugs from heaven. And, I am humbled that God has seen fit to use me, as well as so may others, like yourself, to reveal His compassion, His power, and His unconditional love for all who have lost a precious child. Yes, ... To God be the glory, indeed! May He continue to work through us, to use each of us to help heal our wounded hearts!
Much love & Angel Hugs,

Dear Angela, ~ Oh how happy I am that our prayers are being answered and that you are out of the hospital and that you have taken the time and made the effort to communicate with us to let us know how you are coming along. I know this is a very difficult time for you and that your pain seems too much to bear. But, please know that our prayers continue to go up 24/7, asking God to bring healing, and take away both your physical and mental pain. How I wish all of us lived in one community where we could take turns looking out for each other during difficult times! Still, it is such a comfort to know that God is always on call, and that no one has the power to do what He can do. So, we continue to pray for you, dear Angela, and as you know all too well, God hears our prayers! I pray that you will begin to feel the peace and freedom from pain, for which we all pray!
Much love & God's peace & blessings,

4/25/2004 17:42

Dear Ang. You are in my prayers 24/7, like I told you before , you are an Angel here on Earth, and we all need you. Love you my sister. Selva
