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.

We're ever so grateful that this Hurricane is over with now, continued prayers for all those who have to clean up over the destruction. A friend of mine told me about this African prayer, it's simple and beautiful: One group say's "God is good" the second group replies "All the time" and so on, it's a beautiful way of giving Gratitude to God!


Hello forrest4955,
A very beautiful poem, one we can all relate to, thank you so much for posting it!

Much love, prayers & Hugs,
Sandy

Selva, mi hermana,
I have not been able to post my prayers and concerns for you (and all others)as of late. Please know that you have been constant in my prayers. My hubby and I have been quite "attached" to CNN and their around the clock coverage of the hurricanes.
Selva, I knew that Solange and Sean would both be looking out for you and your family...I have never shared with you that Sean's friends had given him the pet name of the "Hurricane"...They said because he came in, took care of business, and left. In swimming, it was a good thing! So please feel comforted in knowing that not only do you have Solange and all other angelmom's babies looking out for you, but you also have your own Hurricane Angel!

Living in CA we have lived through earthquakes. I understand the destruction and upheaveal a natural disaster can bring. My niece Jenny and her family lived in Homestead and had their home destroyed by Hurr. Andrew.

We will continue to pray for you and all others. Please continue to take care of yourself. We all need you, mi Hermana. Vaya con Dios.

With much love and Prayers,
Marci~.~

Angelmoms,
It has been a real struggle for us the past few months. So much has gone on that I don't know where to begin. I feel as if we've gone through many trials and my entire family has been set on emotional overload!

My daughter has accepted a water polo scholarship from a University in Northern CA. We all were surprised because she has great talent in swimming (all-American) and only played water polo a season because her friends played. She really doesn't have much experience, her swimming skills and the fact that two of her team-mates received full rides, they made it a package! We are thrilled for her and look forwarded to seeing her continue to follow her dreams. There has been a few set backs and she has had many struggles that she has not quite made it through yet. She broke her hand just before she moved. She wasnít sure if they would still let her have the scholarship if she was unable to play. The doctors at first told her she needed to have surgery and needed to see an orthopedic surgeon. After reviewing her records her coach set her up with a Sports Specialist who cleared her to play without surgery. They removed her cast and put on a removable cast with the requirement that she wear it for 3 months. She is now living in a college apartment with 5 girls, no longer a beautiful condo with one roomate on the beach! She is still near the beach but itís not the same!

Our daughter Kristi is now about 5/12 to 6 hour drive away from us, whereas before it was a 3 hour drive (3 Ĺ with traffic). Her cell phone has poor reception there so we have been unable to get in touch with her to make sure sheís okay. She goes to school and water polo practice and doesnít get home till late evenings by the time she eats it 9:30 pm and sheís ready for bed. No time to come home! There have been a couple times that when I did talk to her I was more than ready to hop on a plane to go see her and offer my motherly support! She is doing a little better now but she still has a few struggles. Imagine swimming with a broken hand! The doctor gave her pain medication for when she practices but it puts her to sleep and she doesnít like the way it makes her feel, so she takes Tylenol only!

The accident with my sonís friend Matt Meyer is still under investigation. My son Matthew has been contacted by several investigators. Every time they call to speak to him, afterwards it puts him a very quite mood, very unlike him. The district attorney still wants to prosecute Reed for vehicle manslaughter. Reedís attorneys have asked that the charges be dropped or plea bargain to a misdemeanor. Jeff, (other accident victim) is doing very well and is trying to adjust to everything that has happened. He still has no memory of the accident and didnít understand how Matt Meyer passed away.

Personally my hubby and I have gone through many emotional decisions in regards to our beloved Sean-Michael. Many involved the accident and the insurance company and some were personal. We had to decide on what to do with his car. It has been in storage and now was released. When the tow trucked pulled it out of the ditch it destroyed the frame making it unable to repair, when we thought it had minimal damage. Our friend has offered to have the car crushed so it could never hurt anyone again (his words). We agreed.
There have been many painful battles and reminders. I keep holding on to the words of Sandy and Verna reminding us all that someday we will experience joy in out lives again and to Godís promise and hope that someday we will be reunited with our son. No tears or pain in Heaven!

With much love and prayers to all,
Marci~.~

Good morning Angel Moms! :)

This morning when I awaken
and saw the sun above,
I softly said, "Good morning, Lord!
Bless everyone I love!"

Right away I thought of you,
and said a little prayer,
that God would bless you specially,
And keep you in His care!

I thought of all the good things,
That life can have in store ...
I wished them all for you, because ...
No one deserves them more!

Just to let you know I am thinking of you, and keeping you in my heartfelt prayers!
[Sorry, (Senior Moment), I forgot the author of this beautiful poem.] :) MaDear gave me a greeting card that had this poem on it back in 1983! :) I miss her so! She had such a kind and tender spirit; and words of wisdom to share with all she came in contact with! And, such a beautiful smile! :)
Love & Angel Hugs,
Yo Miss V. :)

Hello Memaw817, ~ Welcome to our prayer/support circle of love. I am so sorry to read about the loss of your beloved Little Ray and Karen. I lost my daughter, Diane, on Aug. 31, 1996. It's been 8 years now, but I will always miss her. You, having lost two precious children has to be so difficult. I, too, have another child, my daughter Cheryl, whom I love with all my heart. I cannot imagine the pain you have known having lost two precious children. I will keep you in my prayers! It is so very kind of you to reach out to others, even as you continue to grieve your own loss. Please know that this is a safe place to share your feelings and talk about your loss. Our chief angel mom Sandy assures all of us that we will never be judged. Only love, support, compassion, and prayers for one another.
Love & Angel Hugs,
Verna

Hi Ms V. Are you taking care of yourself? NOT. I am so sorry about the family in Bowden, I am an expert on hurricanes (ha ha but yes yes) Do you know that must of the fatalities are after the hurricane? Yes people venture out when you are not supposed to, people don't understand the incredible strenght of the hurricane, I think that only in FLA and the Carolines knows what a hurricane is. We are holding up for Ivan, I think (and I hope) that we will be spare of the eye, but maybe you guys or the Panhadled of Fla is going to get it full, we will know saturday, we still have the shutters up, just in case, so please my dear sisters keeep on praying, this is another killer even bigger than Frances, it is the price you pay for living in a tropical Paradise. I know I can count on all your prayers and also Angela's prayers Warriors, Wow, it is really a lesson for us to know that PRAYERS WORKS. Give a kiss to my grandson. Love Selva

Hi our dear sister Marci! I know, I'm late replying to you, but I did read your Post earlier and was touched by what you shared.
I know you and your daughter are very close, so her moving that far away must have bothered you (and still does!). It's so hard when they leave the nest that far away, as my Chris did too, when you've already lost a precious child.
Thank goodness the two boys are doing well, hm, I was hoping they wouldn't still be interested in pursuing Manslaughter charges, but of course I don't know all the facts of the case. It has to be tough on your Matthew, constantly reliving it telling it over and over again to Investigators, as well as dealing with the whole sad situation.
There are so many emotional, painful decisions to be made, painful battles and reminders, they permeate every aspect of your life and in some cases there's not much relief to be found in making them. The decision though to get rid of Sean Michael's vehicle is a wise one I think, and one you won't regret making. Keep hanging in there sweetie, one day at a time, or one hour, depending on the day.
In my love, prayers and lots of Hugs,
Sandy

Hello Memaw, I'm so sorry also to read you've lost 2 precious children, losing one is heartwrenching enough, I just can't imagine what it's like to lose two, God love you! That's so sweet of you to remember all of us in your prayers, and you can be assured you'll be in our's too, for your own grief and pain. Please post back here anytime, we all have much to learn from each other and give our support, understanding, love to all who have lost a precious child as we have, so please make yourself at home here at the Circle,
Love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

Ay my dear sisters. Once again I am bothering you with my request for prayers, I know there are so many out there who needs prayers and of course you can count on me, but we have another hurricane coming our way,(my brother Angelo I hope you still have your shutters up) this one is a real killer, bigger than Andrew that almost destroyed Miami 10 years ago,for the last 10 years we did not have any problems with hurricane, but I guess this year we were due, 3 in the last month, supplies are low, meaning water, batteries, plywood , gasoline etc, due to Frances and now we have this one coming monday morning, so Please pray for us in Fla, we really can not take it anymore. I believe in prayers, and I know if all of us pray hard enough, God will spare us and everybody else of this hurricane, it already wiped off Grenada, the Fla Keys are evacuating (very close to Miami, we are the mainland) I know most of you don't know what a hurricane is, but it can get ugly, I am not affraid for my life, God knows I am ready, but the others. OMG I don't want to even think about it. Thanks my dear sister, I know I can count with your prayers and Prayers Works. Thank you all. Love Selva

Hi,

I'm Mildred and I need your prayers for every area of my life, and I want forget to pray over all 261 pages of prayer request's. I to lost a grandson and a son within seven months, and two brothers, and grandmother in 1997, uncle and cousin in 1998, a cousin in 1999.

My mother and a cousin in 2002, two uncles and a cousin in 2001, a uncle, brother-in law my oldest granson was killed in a car accident6-27-2003, and my baby, my youngest son was murdered on 2-2-04 along with his best friend and his mother by her grandson.

I feel as if my pain and Grief will never go away, my bills are growing day by day and my income is not enough to cover them all. At times I feel that I just can't take it no more and I want to end my own life.

God of Love and Grace, open our eyes that we may see to walk out the door that you opened for us. (M.W. 9-10-04)
