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 dear Mildred,
I responded to your Post, but I see it isn't here?? I'm so sorry, but our dear Selva posted to you, and what she said is oh so true, you're among good company here at the Circle, others who understand completely what some just can't. You've had so many losses in such a short span, then losing your precious son so tragically and not very long ago, you must be in so much pain and grief! I pray you have good, supportive people around you right now, people you can talk to, people who can help, have you joined a Support Group or something similar to that? Sweetie, most of us go through the phase of wanting so desperately to be with our children, but that's not the answer and never will be. If your depression is severe, please go and see your Dr., many of us have had to do just that, it's such a hard road, Journey to go down! Please consider yourself a part of this family now, this Circle, and you'll be surrounded by love, acceptance, support, understanding and prayers, never any judging of what you say or how you feel, your feelings will be honored here. Please post back and let us all know how you're doing, we DO care,
Love, prayers, Hugs,

Hey Sis, ~ I just sent you the rambler I started earlier today! This has really been a FULL DAY! Just wanted to come here and join the other angel moms in prayer for healing for you. I pray that God will take away the pain, and that the healing for which we pray is ongoing & taking place right now! In Jesus' name, Amen!

Hey dear Selva, ~ Just a note to let you know that you & family are covered in our prayers also. I pray that God will provide protection for you and your family, as well as for all that may be in the path of Ivan. In Jesus' name, Amen!

Hey All, ~ Gotta give the hands & body a rest! :) It's been a rough day! Will post soon I hope. :)

God's blessings on Everyone! ~

Good Morning Angel Moms/Dads, ~ I may have shared this link before. [Senior Moment.] :) Nevertheless, ... The following is a link that might prove helpful in increasing your faith that your child is indeed alive and well, and very much a part of your life as you continue your grief journey. Remember it is a uniquely personal as well as painful journey which cannot be rushed. On days/nights when the pain of missing your child's physical presence seems too much to bear, ... You may find it helpful to think about the information shared by this author. As hard as it may be to believe, ... Because of the many signs I have received from my beloved daughter, Diane, I am convinced beyond the shadow of a doubt that my Diane is helping me on my journey 24/7. There is no way on earth I could have survived such indescribable grief and pain or come this far, [8 years] now, on my own! I am not here because I desire to be; I am still here to pay tribute to my beloved daughter, by doing everything in my power to help prevent others from having to experience the kind of pain I and many others have experienced, and to pray for others who have lost a beloved child; no matter what the cause, ... Thereby, fulfilling the ultimate purpose God has for me in this life. I still find it hard to believe that I would volunteer for such a difficult assignment while here on earth. Obviously, I could not have known how difficult this assignment would be. I'm sure God knew I couldn't do it alone! :) I believe the same is true of my Diane, and each of you, and your child/children. :) Angel Moms/Dads, ... Keep the faith, & watch for the signs!
Love & Angel Hugs,
Miss V.

Dear Sis and All:

Here is the link for you to click on
Your Child Lives; Synopsis

Since I began making Memorial Pages and Websites for Bereaved Parents and Families; this is a common theme I have noticed A LOT.

I have also felt the prescense of the "deceased family member or child" and at times, the child has given me a message to tell their parents...

One such message was for a dear friend we call each other sister now, Valerie in Georgia, her dear Lucas was taken in a car accident, at only 18, and he was standing behind me on the left in my closet which the doors were open on and he was standing there with his hands in his pockets and yelling at me (shouting was a symbol that he was trying to reach his mom but she was not "hearing" him, or "perceiving him")

He was mouthing shouting words to me but his voice was not shouting, his spirit was "shouting" to try to get his mom's attention...

that he was okay and he still loved her...His mom wanted to know if he suffered in the car accident in which he was hit on his side and taken instantly, his message was

"No I did not suffer, I went intantaneously and there was NO PAIN..."

and that gave Valerie comfort...

Valerie now feels Lucas around and knows he is with her a lot...

Here is Lucas' Site Lucas

Also, thank you all for your prayers, I have not been in that much pain in years...I slept with the heating pad on my tummy on low and got into the hot tub 3 times during the night to help bring the pain down...

So thanks so much for your prayers...

Love Angela xoxo

9/12/2004 16:23

Oh, I forgot dear Angel Mom's that Lucas gave me a poem to write for his mom...Lucas Our Son And Brother

And when Lucas was standing in my closet with his hands in his pockets, he was also leaning against the wall...which is an important fact, as that was an indication that Lucas is at peace right now...he always had his hands in his pockets as his pictures show, but I did not know this fact yet, because Valerie snail-mailed all the pic's to me to scan and I had not rec'd his pic's yet so it really was Lucas standing in the closet with this hands in his pockets...look how he stands on this page...Hugs Baby Tugs

And Lucas had a premonition of his death 3 days before and he wrote this article 3 days before he was taken...Lucas On Life

And before I had made the site for Valerie, I was told by the Spirit I Hear to make this page and use this certain picture of Lucas and Leah together, they were engaged and I was told to place this song on the page, Josh Groban, "To Where You Are"....and 2 days later Valerie was not aware the page had been made yet and she emailed me and asked me to make THIS page with THIS picture and THIS song...

So angelmom's this is my God-given mission in life...It is not me but God and Jesus Christ who works thru me for all grieving parents and families...

love ang. xo

Mildred,My heart goes out to you. I had a few years like that. It was so hard to handle. By SHARING your pain with us it helps you be able to carry the burden. More people can sure carry more than a single person could.
No Mike has not seet it yet.. I think he's ready now.

We had a tragity here where i live, A 3 yr old drown in the creek near his home. He was found 6 hours after found missing,in the next town after finding his pooh bear in the water. Partly due to the flooding (rising waters).
The mother of this child happen's to be my sons very 1st girlfriend.
I couldn't bear to attend the funeral.

Lucas (what a sweet boy)
It reminded me so much of Stephanie.God sends these angels to us.
I think of you parents (who lost children)
and wonder, you must be very special people because god picked you to bring up these (special children) and take good care of till their ready to go home.
I honor you ! Chris

Hello our dear sister Eva, you've been missed around here so when I clicked on here at the Circle I was surprised and happy to see a Post from you! It's so sad though dear Eva and so filed with pain, God love you. I'm happy to read that you're going back and getting some help, you are not crazy or insane, dear one, how many others of us have had to get help as you are, this is the toughest and most painful thing to ever go through! And on top of your grief over Matthew, you're dealing with other pressing and stressful events in your life right now. You're NOT being rude at all, you need to vent and get it out of your system and you always know you can safely do it here, among those who understand and love and support you.

cheri, Stephanie is the one of the most beautiful children i have ever seen.
You all have got to check out this site.
welcome, and god bless you, Chris

9/15/2004 14:32

Hi Cheri, a big warm welcome back, you probably have forgotten in your grief and pain sweetie, you posted here once before and I signed your beautiful Stephanie's website back then. What a sweet little Angel she is, a bright star shining in Heaven, but always close to you too. Cheri, it hasn't been very long since Stephanie passed, so you're still very much in pain and grief, God love you. You also have other problems piling on top of you that are increasing your stress and depression. Of course we'll pray for you, precious little Steph and your family, we'll hold you all in our hearts and prayers, love and support. Please post back here again, we do care and if you want to vent, this is a safe sanctuary for you.
Love, prayers, & Angel Hugs,

9/15/2004 20:30

Hi my dear sister Eva, welcome back, Ay my dear sister we all know what you are going through, see, the second year is worse than the first, please my dear sister, forget about what family and friends are thinking, but I am still going through therapy once a week, taking my antidepressant pills ,adn doing everything in this Earth that could help me with this awful pain, see, our kids don't want to see us like that, so the only way out is to seek professional help, well that is they way I think, we can not handle this in our own because we are only humans, if your hubby is drinking, let him, that is the way he can cope with it, men are different and they think they don't need any outside help, but we do, remember God put us through this so He will help us, but He also understands that after all we are (poor human beings) we need all the help we can get. so please my dear sister, remember we are all going through the same pain and complications that you are going through, there is no judgement here, only understanding, and we all do, so please post anytime, we are all here for one another. My prayers and ours are with you my dear sister, we know THE PAIN. Love you . Selva

9/15/2004 20:34

Hi our dear Ang. I'm praying that you are feeling a lot better my dear sister Angel, I know about that illness because I have a friend who also suffers from it, but I also know there will be times when you can feel better again and that is why I (we) are Storming Heaven for you to feel better. Love you Selva

9/15/2004 20:36

Hi dear Cherri, yes I also visited your dear Stephanie's site, she is a beautiful Angel right now, free from all sufferings and pain, she is FREE, and now she is happy, we will storm prayers for you and hubby and family. Love Selva

9/15/2004 20:41

Hi Chris. We are still praying for you , the family and Steven. Please keep us updated it. Love Selva

9/16/2004 00:42

Hello Dearest AngelMoms,
Please keep my oldest son Chris in your prayers. He is in the Air Force, stationed in Germany and has been in Biloxi, Mississippi since 11 Sept for some upgrade training. As you know, Hurricane Ivan will shortly land and it is expected to be pretty close to Biloxi. He is sheltered on the base which is ACROSS the street from the Gulf of Mexico. They never gave him the option to evacuate to higher ground, even though we have very good friends that live 10 miles from the base. I am so upset about this. I have been an Air Force wife for over 26 years (2 husbands) and my son has been in for almost 4 years. I am so proud of anyone who chooses to serve; they give up so much to protect us. But to think that they move the planes to a safer place and leave the humans to take a chance...UGH!! I just know that I will be holding my breath until they release him which he says will be Friday at the earliest. Thank you for listening to me whine. This Momma is pretty frustrated right now.
Love and Prayers Always,
Alex's Momma
