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.

Hi my dear sisters, ~ I am finally back online. My new email address is

I have not figured out how to export my aol address book, so I am asking that you send me your email and snail mail addresses so that I can update my address book. I am sorry to say that I have not been able to send one holiday greeting via snail mail since I lost all of my AOL stuff. :( Needless to say, this has put an added damper on the holidays for me. I pray that all of you are taking these holidays one minute, one hour, and one day at a time. We will do it for our guardian angels kids. I am sure it will put a smile on their faces ... just to see us make the effort! Even though the miles separate us, we are spiritually connected in our love, understanding and concern for each other. My love and prayers to all!
PS: Y'all be patient with me until I get use to this new home page and email address. I feel as though I have moved to another city or state![Ha-ha!]

Hi everyone, It has been awhile since I've been here. There is so much to say but not sure really how to or where to start. Sorry it's been so long but everyone of you have been in my prayers.

My dearest Sandy, I want to tell you what a dear special Angel you are to me. I don't have to say a word but you know what you've done for me and I can't thank you enough. You helped tp pick me up when I thought I couldnt go on anymore. You were right there to help me as though thats where God wanted you to be at the time. Again, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

I am really sorry I havent kept in touch with all of you like I should of but ya'll know what it's like to get depressed. Well I just let mine go to far. I know that I can always come here and vent how I feel but for me when I'm depressed I dont want to be around anyone or talk to anyone. I just sorta shut down. I wont linger on and talk about it because I dont want to bring anyone else down.

Sandy or Miss V, can eaither one of you tell me why I can't find the memorial I made for Amiee. I looked and looked and can't find it. I can't even find the one I made for my sister-in-law SANDY. Tommorow is Amiee and Elizabeths birthday and I was going to post at her memorial but it's not there anymore. Can't figure out why it would'nt be there.

Selva, Honey I havent forgotten about you and Solanges birthday. Just didnt have the words in me to post at her memorial. I will soon I promise.

Love to you all,
Love and Butterfly Hugs'

Hi our dear sister Jenn. It is great to hear from you, we were worried about the snow storm that hit up north, we thoughed you had no electricity, but it is OK my dear sister, sometimes we don't find the energy to post here, but we all understand.This is the place to come when you feel like it, sometimes when we have no strenght and we ask for help. so don't worry about it, our prayers will be always with you. The easiest way to find your memorials it is, just click on your own name after you posted, this will show a little window, and click in memorials, then just click on their names and it will take you there, just relax and always be sure that we will be here for you and also our prayers, whenever you don't post, we understand, and we will keep on praying. Try what I told you, and if you still can't find it, let us know we will guide you to it. God Bless you my dear sister, and Amiee and Elizabeth will have our prayers too. Love Selva

12/19/2005 20:22

Jenn. Click on your name when you posted here now, then click on my pages, then you will see your Memorials and just click on it. Love Selva

12/19/2005 21:11

Hey ther my dear friend Selva, Thank you so much. I was begining to get really worried. Could'nt figure out what happened to it. I'm going to try it right now. THANKS AGAIN.

All my Love and Butterfly Hugs,

Hi kay, I just wanted to say THANK YOU for posting at Amiees memorial site. I am so sorry for the lose of your beloved son Joshua. He was a handsome young man and I am very happy he came and comforted you on Thanksgiving. I did make it through Thanksgiving but am now trying really hard to make it through Christmas. Tommorow is Amiee and Elizabeths birthday and this is always a hard day for me. Celebrating for Elizabeth and thinking of Amiee and woundering how it would be with the both of them here. I'm sur eI would be going crazy with two teenage daughters.
I kinda have to laugh at myself when I say that because I can remember when I was a teen and I know I would have my hands full.

Love and Butterfly Hugs,

By the way wanted to tell you that I have an 8 year old son and his name is Joshua Isaiah Dallas Danner. We call him Josh. I think Joshua is a strong name and is in the bible also. Thats why we named him Joshua. Just wanted to let you know. Jenn

12/19/2005 21:53

Hi Selva, Thanks again. You were right, it was there and I did get to post at Amiees memorial site. Before you helped me, I was really getting worried. MUCH LOVE TO YOU MY DEAR SISTER.

All my love and Butterfly Hugs,

Hello dear Jennifer,

When I read your post to your Aimee at her memorial site, I felt both your love and your pain.
Please know in your heart that your words of love,
the outpouring of what you will always feel for your
beloved Aimee is not, nor will it ever be in vain.
You see, the thoughts that you've shared here with your Aimee
Helps others to deal with their sadness their longing
And their own personal pain. When you
Express the deep feelings you have in your heart, it
Helps other angel moms to realize that the pain and
Loss they feel so deeply over the loss of their beloved children
Has been felt by you as well as by others who have
walked in your shoes. It helps others to know that
It’s really OK and that no matter how much it hurts ...
With God at our side and with the prayers, compassion,
Understanding, and support of others; especially those who have walked
In our shoes … We can and will weather our major life
Storms together and forever. Your tendeer and loving words to your Aimee reinforces and magnifies
An important truth to all angel moms: We will never walk alone!

I join all angel moms here as I light a "Special Days" candle as a tribute to Aimee, & for the celebration of the birthday of your "Twin Angels" Elizabeth and Aimee. :) One, here in the physical, the other; Forever in our hearts! :)

Much love & tender hugs from heaven and here on earth! :)

Special Days

Special days are always hard
But even though we are far apart
We always know within our hearts
We share each others pain

No matter whether night or day
We never will forget to pray
That God will help us bear our grief
Throughout our special days

Though special days will come and go
There is always one thing that we know
Our Lord provides the help we need
As we go along our way

We know that God is on our side
Our special day needs he will provide
Within his grace we shall abide …
Until our work is through

We therefore hold on to his hand
As we travel through this troubled land
With our children someday
Before his throne we will stand
Oh … What a Special Day that will be!

Hey Verna, Thank you for the kind words and Thank you for posting at Amiees memorial. The poem is beautiful as all your poems are always beautiful.

Just teenage little stuff. Thanks

Dear Shaner, I am feel blessed to have the opportunity to pray for those Loving Children that were lost so young... I would like to offer my prayers to each person who has posted a prayer in your circle. Children are a blessed gift from God & loosing a child, as we all know, is the most painful thing to have to endure. I was blessed with two children, one in 1995 & my second in 1997. I never had the chance to meet twins I lost at 13 weeks in 2001, as i miscarried, but I feel God blessed me with another beautiful 3yr old, born in 2002. I pray for each & everyone who has had to deal with such a devasting blow. God's peace & Love to all, amdillon

Dear Pure30, ~ Welcome to our circle of love, prayer, support, compassion, and understanding. I am so very sorry to read of your loss. Every mom here will pray heartfelt prayers for you; asking God to please ease your heartfelt pain and give you precious moments of peace for which we all pray. You will find much support here and no judgement whatsoever for expressing the pain we know you can't help but feel. Your loss is so recent, it has to be so very hard to deal with your loss. I know in my heart that your beloved son, Carlito Ray, is watching over you 24/7; praying that God will comfort you and give you the kind of peace that only he can provide. I've been on my journey a little over 9 years now; so I can assure you that the pain will become easier to bear; but it does take time. It is my prayer the the love and support you receive here will lessen your pain with each passing day, and that you will feel your child's spirit throughout the days ahead.
God's peace and blessings,

12/21/2005 05:28

Hello dear sister angel moms, :) I've been up baking most of the night, and thought I'd come here to check on everyone. I am so drained, I think I will go get some rest and check back tomorrow, God willing, and catch up on reading and posting to everyone. Always know that my heartfelt prayers are ongoing for all.
Love and Prayers,

Please don't forget to pamper yourselves throughout the holidays. Always know that the sad moments are only natural and that it is really ok to express exactly how you feel; especially here, where you know we all understand how difficult it is to make it through the holidays. Just know that our prayers are always ongoing and that you will never have to walk this road alone. Even if you are not up to posting, just come and read as time permits. I believe it will prove to be helpful just knowing someone will always be here to walk with you through your pain 24/7.

12/21/2005 05:42

Lord, ~ Thank you for family and friends. I thank you for all the love and support you provide for us daily. Thank you for giving us this safe haven where we can come together and pray for each other, and grieve for our beloved children openly. Thank you for understanding and for allowing us to express our grief and pain. We know that you have our beloved children in your loving arms and that you will take care of them until for us until we join them when our work here is finished. Until then, Lord, we will strive to do your will and love each other as you love us. In Jesus' name, Amen

Dear Angel Moms, ~ The following poem I wrote some time ago. It was inspired by Angel Mom Selva’s beautiful and beloved daughter, Solange. With just a little bit of editing, Selva and I decided to share this poem with all Angel Moms. There is no doubt in our minds that your dearly beloved Guardian Angel child is praying a heartfelt prayer for you too. May the words of this poem give you a measure of peace today and throughout the holidays and New Year!

An Angel’s Prayer

~A Prayer for my Mom ~
Dear God,

You know how much I love You Lord ~
I know you love me too.
But Lord I have a favor that I must ask of you.
You see My Mom is
Hurting, Oh God she's
Hurting bad. She misses
My physical presence,
which makes her oh so sad.
And though I'm forever near her,
she can't feel me by her side.
I've tried so hard to reach her,
and it hurts to see her cry!
So God I come before your throne,
to plead my mama's case.
I ask that you would ease her pain,
and wipe her tears away!
Oh God please give her courage,
don’t let her spirit die!
Please let her know that someday,
she’ll know the reason why.
She'll know that it was just my time;
my work on earth was through.
But there is still so very much,
you have left for her to do!
Please let her know she's needed there,
to share some mother's pain.
For there are many longing,
to see their child again.
Please help her through her valley days,
please lift her spirits high!
And if you will, please let her know,
When you sent for me ... I did not die!
My guardian angels surrounded me,
and shielded me with powerful wings.
They lifted me up, I felt no pain!
As I viewed that final scene.
The next thing I knew I was in heaven,
being fitted for my angel wings!
With a heavenly body in a long white robe ...
I was presented to our Lord, the King!
Let my Mom know I'm her guardian angel now,
And that I'll forever be.
In Jesus' name I beg of you ... God,
Please set my Mom's spirit free!
In Jesus' name, Amen!

~I love you Mom ~
~ Always & Forever ~

What a beautiful poem. I know God sent me here for a reason. He always knows what you need and when you are so down you don't think you can make it.Sandy, Verna, Selva and all the angel moms I wanted to come here and say that I love you all and always pray for you even though I don't come here like I should you are always in my heart. I miss my Carol everyday of the year but it seems like the holidays are the worse. I just remember all the fun and joy we always shared and I know you all remember also. I keep thinking about our children celebrating with our Lord and how happy they must be. The poem touched me because I also know our children want us to be happy. We will never stop missing them or hurting from it. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and the best of a new year and I welcome all the new angel moms. Like I said above I don't come here like I used but you will surely be blessed each time you do come here. I love you all, Barb
Oh Verna I emailed you many times but I guess they never made it to you. I see you have a new address. I will try again.

12/22/2005 19:13

Thanks my dear dear Ms V. for sharing that poem with all our Angel moms, like I always told you I has helped me so very much, and yes our dear Angel sisters, our Angel kids want us to go on until our mission here on Earth is done, they did their mission, now we have to accomplish ours in their name, we are all surrounded by their love and prayers, they are still very much alive in another dimension, we can't see them . but they can see us, we still can feel their love, and they can feel ours, they also understand that we can not feel so very happy, but they also know that we still have to go on, until God decides that our work here on Earth is done, and then we can be reunited with our Angels and this time FOREVER, so just lets hang in there with the help of God, we will make it and we will finish our mission here. Love Selva
