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 our dear Miss V, what a beautiful poem as well on the previous page!
That's too bad about little Asia, we know so well how her Parents are feeling right now.
Did everyone hear about the horrific crash that killed 7 siblings? I can't even imagine what their Parents are going through - and then on top of that, when they told the Grandfather, he died of a massive heart attack, the shock was too much for him - how very, very sad. We'll have to remember to pray for them too, they surely need God's great comfort and love at this most painful of times for them! I think it happened in Florida?
Always love reading your ramblers Miss V, don't ever stop posting them!
Lots of love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

THANKS EVERYONE!!!! I'll keep reading and posting because this is my strength and salvation. Suangels2

Shaner: I hadn't heard of the 7 siblings and then the grandfather. We think our losses are so unbearable, then we get that kick of reality. I sure hope that family is able to find us. Their grief will be so massive that they would benefit to know so much love is headed their way. That sure will be a test of faith for them. We all know our feelings, but to even try to fathum what it's doing to them. I am sending up prayers as I post for them. If anyone in the circle finds out more, or even the area for sure, let us know so we can send our momentum that way. My heart goes out to that family. God & Jesus, PLEASE HELP US HELP THEM. I pray for them. Suangels2

Hello Everyone, It's been awhile, but I made it through the trial. Carlos Ford-Vigil looked the devil incarnate in court and the judge found enough evidence to charge him with Capitol First Degree Murder. Small victory in this big battle. I have been keepin myself busy with updating Joshua's new home I will be a web master soon ;-) I read all that I have missed since my absence and it is truly overwhelming. My blood pressure is being treated and wish I could do something about these sleepless nights. I have drugs I could take, but choose not to as I don't like to be too dependent on anything. Just wanted to let you all know I appreciate any and all who have stopped by my sons website and my prayers are continually going out to ALL who have to suffer in this nightmare of losing a child in whatever fashion. Here's a bible verse I found profound:
Love to U all

1/27/2006 11:38

Hi dear suangels,
You're so right, we can't even fathom what they're going through, losing ALL their children and then their Grandfather when he heard the tragic news. a very heavy Cross to carry, their Pastor said all he could really do for them right now is pray and cry with them. So very sad. Here's a link to the Story, you can read about it for yourself, News Report
We add our own prayers for the Parents, God love them, and know with confidence that Our Lord is there in their midst, helping them,
Much love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

Hello our dear Phyllis,
That was short and sweet, but it's nice to see a Post from you, :-). I think having your Grandson home with you is helping you a bit with your pain and grief although we all know that nobody can ever replace the child we've lost
God's love & mine to you
Angel Hugs too,

1/27/2006 13:31

Hi dear Kay,
It must have been diffcult, thankfully God brought you through along with all prayers said for you. I can definitely see how that Scripture piece give's you comfort, during this oh so hard time.
We always post at each other's Memorial sites, it's our way of honoring each other's losses. Good to hear your blood pressure is being taken care of, you have to look after yourself too even though some day's we just don't care or have the energy.
Hm, our dear sister Selva sent me a Cassette Tape that you play when it's time to get some sleep, I found it very helpful and an alternative to taking med.'s, that may be something for you to look into.
Don't be a stranger around here now that you have your own website, we still very much want to hear from you!
Much love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

1/27/2006 15:52

Hi my dear Ms. V. so nice to read your ramblers, I just love it, and it is great that you are feeling better , I hope that you are taking care of yourself remember we are watching you. Love my dear sister
Our dear Suangels2, of course we are still praying for little Asia and her family, yes it will take a long time for them but in the meantime we will pray for them and for you our dear sister.
Kay that is good news that the terrible man got his day in court and found guilty, I know that your pain remains but now you know that justice took care of that horrible man and that he will not hurt anybody else, please post anytime you need and remember our love and prayers are with you and Joshua.
Hi dear Phyllis, welcome back to our Circle of love, so glad your grandson is there with you, please take care of yourself and know that our love and prayers are with you all.
Hi my dear sister. Sorry I have not posted in a little while, I have been in the valley, missing Solange so very much. I heard about the little ones killed in the accident, it has been in our news 24/7 (which does not make it easier) it ocurred in Fla, and yes the grandfather (only 62) died from a heart attack, the poor thing could not bear with all that pain, I watched the mother speak this morning, my heart went out to her, she is devastated, the girl that was driving was only 16 (she was the oldest) but it was not their fault, they got hit from behind by a big truck, the driver was distracted or drunk, they still don't know, how horrible. Lets pray for them,I wish there was something else we could do, it is so very very sad. Love you my dear sisters. Selva

1/27/2006 19:37

Hi all my dear Angel sister. OK , here I go, I am known for being very honest, so tonight I have to say (and I'm sorry if I get you down) I MISS SOLANGE SO VERY VERY MUCH! I just want to be with my daughter again. Please pray for me and all of us. Love Selva

1/28/2006 08:27

Hi my dear sister, yes, that was one awful accident, God love them all, I don't know how I would handle all that pain and grief, so sad.
Hey, you never have to say you're 'sorry' here, you know that! You miss your beloved Solange and are in the valley over it - that's OK, we all understand, and you also know that our love and prayers are with you during this rough time for you, hang on my dear sister, we'll storm Heaven for you, love you my dear sister,
Hugs & Prayers too,

I come today, not for myself, but for my friend Melanie. She came home from work Thursday, the 26th, to find her yard full of policemen and her 12 year old daughter, fondly known as "Becca", who had accidently hung herself. Due to the officers waiting on detectives to process the scene, they had not cut her down, so my beloved Melanie had to see that. Obviously, as we all know, she is still in shock, so we are giving her plenty of time with her fiance to comfort her. Everyone here knows, we would do anything to take this pain from her, we would never wish this on anyone. With my own son's angel day coming on February 20, this hit a little too close to home, and brought back some hard memories. But I really just want everyones prayers to go out to Melanie right now, she is going to need them to get through this, again, as we all know. Becca was such a giggle box, and she so looked forward to the future. Melanie and Belden were getting a place together, and they were going to be married soon, and Belden planned to adopt Becca. She was so excited about life!!
Sadly though, Becca is Melanie's only daughter, only child. Becca was her life. Please, pray for her, as she goes today to make funeral arrangements.
Love and Angel Hugs and Kisses!!!!

Our Dear Selva: You have the love & prayers of so many who understand your "LOW VALLEY" There is always so much pain and hurt that we all try to cosole, yet our losses continue to. There are so many things we're missing and we have the right to. God gives us strength to help others, but then the lovely Solange He gave you is such a blessed memory that you can't not hurt at times. That's why we're here, to help you knoe Solange is looking down and giving you all the power of love to help you climb out of the valley of the shadow of her death. She is walking with you and Christ, to give you the love and strength you need. We love you for the special lady you are and know your pain of hurt . I'll be saying extra prayers for you to find your way. Go buy a balloon of mylar,short ribbon, with a note, and send Solange and God a message. Watcth it flicker and dance as it soars upward to them. It always helps me find a little special connection with them that helps me. Love & Prayers Suangels2 Hi Donna: I'll be praying for your friend Melanie, who lost her only child "Becca" I too lost my Dalin at 16, also an only child and best friend, to a sudden car accident. It happened in 1994 and I still live with it daily as I went to the scene and tried CPR, but it didn't work like on T.V. She bled to death internally. I still ache for Dalin daily and have so many emotions and questions. All I can say is the time I found my way here, I have been able to have some better days. My faith has kept me alive all this time knowing I'd see Dalin again, but these angel parents and family has been my blessing. I can speak freely and not be looked at or thought of as crazy for my feelings, because we all know the unbearable pain we bear, but WE SHARE. Believe me, some nights I can even sleep from the love and prayers. It's so good to hear Melanie has someone in her life, but she needs to communicate with him. It's so easy to run and hide in ourselves, but to have a support of love is much needed. I hope and pray we can send her (and you) the love,prayers and strength she needs and maybe someday she'll come on our post to. Until then please let her know we're doing our best to send her the strength of prayers. She's lucky to have a friend like you also. Bless you to and cotinue to post so we know you're all doing as well as you can and if we can help. Love & Prayers Suangels2 Hi to Eveveryone: It seems like this has been a hard holiday season for all of us. I know my heart gets real heavy too. Maybe part of it is also knowing so many soilders have been killed so far from home, and so many families will never be the same. Somtimes I feel like our prayers aren't being answered, but then I believe in God and know He answers in His Time-His Way. We just have to keep our faith and it's so much stronger in numbers. THE POWER OF PRAYERS BY THE MASSES IS MIGHTY!! TOGETHER WE ARE MIGHTY!!! Love & Prayers to all Suangels2

Hi our dear Donna. OMG what a terrible tragedy for your friend Melody, having to see her daughter that way, it is very shocking and awful. Of course we will storm Heaven for her, I know what it means to loose your only child also, Solange was all I had in this life, we all can relate to the pain of loosing a child, we understand that so well, you can be sure that we will pray for Melanie,I also pray that God will give her the strenght she is going to need to go through all that. My love and prayers are also with you, I know how dificult it must be for you also. God Bless you. Love Selva

1/29/2006 08:25

Hi my dear sister Suangels2. I thank God for leading you to this Circle of Love, you are an Angel my dear sister, I can feel your understanding, love and prayers. My doctor changed my meds to a stronger antidepressant, I am really getting into the black hole again, but I know that with all the prayers and love that I find here, I will be feeling stronger to go on, until God decides is my time to be reunited with Solange again and this time forever. That is the only thing I am looking forward to, and sometimes I get a little impatient, but knowing the love, prayers and understanding that I find in this Circle of Love, will help me as it has helped me for the last 41 months. I Thank God for our dear Sister in Chief, Sandy, every day, for creating such a Heaven of rest for all of us, and for having so many wonderful Angel sisters. My love to all. Selva

1/30/2006 09:28

Oh Donna, how terrible for your friend Melanie to see her Becca hanging from that tree - that image will be etched into her mind forever! So, so sad, the little angel playing and that happening to her, God love her. Melanie has to be in shock, thank goodness she has her fiance there to lean on. I know of two other Parents who found their child hung (from suicide) regardless, that's nothing that a Parent ever want's to see.
Our hearts and prayers are with them during this tragic time,
Much love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

Selva: I'm comforted knowing you're still under your Docs care and got better meds. I've had mine changed quite a few times, and, they work for awhile, then a change is needed. I know you're ready to be with Solange, but God isn't done with you here yet. I know it hurts daily(secondly), but our time is Gods. Thank and bless Him for Sandy having the love left to open this circle. I know she never thought it would be so huge, but its a tribute to her SHANE and so much LOVE!!! We're all here for our own pain, but it's also united into one large condolance circle that seems to have the right person saying the right thoughts that's needed. I know so many of you have helped me already and God knows you're all appreciated daily. I can't even imagine a day now without checking how everyone is, knowing our pain, but knowing our strength. THANK YOU!!!!Love&Prayers Suangels2

Hello all my angel mom sisters!!! As more information came about, we found out that there was a dog leash, thrown loosely over a rafter on the porch, she was playing around like any 12 year old, and somehow, she slipped and the chain did not fall off the rafter like you would expect, it hung on something.
This little angel was too excited about her new life she was about to embark on. I am at work so I don't have much time. If I can get this right, her email is
Love to All!!!

1/31/2006 14:18

2/1/2006 15:43

Oh Donna, what a gawdaful way for the poor little angel to die from, one of those terrible freak accidents that nobody is ever prepared for, let alone ever dream's it could happen. Thanks for posting Melanie's e-mail address and know that she's in our love and prayers,
Much love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

The loss of my son, Jeff Boyd, age 45, om May 1, 2005 has been the most devastating thing I have ever indured. There in no comfort for the grief I feel. He as a precious gem in my life and I know he is with His Heavenly Father now. I never knew there could be so many tears in one persons soul. There are days that I just know I cannot go on without him but somehow my Heavenlly Father gets me through one more day. Life will never be the same with out my Jeff. Please pray that God will continue to help me keep going. I miss him so much and just wish I had the chance to sayI love you one more time. I ask God every day to let him know how much he is missed and how much he is loved. I pray that the Lord will guide me through this day and help me to cope. That is all I know to do. It is hard to pray any more. I just ask that God will hold him close and give him the love we send his way. Life will vever be the same. Jef, I love you and miss you more every day. Mom

2/7/2006 08:35

Hello dear patpruitt and welcome to the Circle! I'm just very sorry for the reason you're here, losing your precious Jeff. We all belong to a club we never wanted membership in, but hopefully by sharing your pain and grief here it will help you.
Your loss is so recent, you're still in that 24/7 pain, God love you, it feel's as though someone is squeezing what's left of your heart. Yes, losing a beloved child is the worst pain a parent will ever go through and only other's such as ourselves really understand how that pain feel's, how it permeate's every part of your being.
Just take it one hour, one day at a time right now and let your grief out. Talking about it help's a great deal. Your Jeff is in God's loving arms and one day you'll be reunited with him again.
Please post here anytime, you'll only find support, understanding, love, prayers and never any judging, this is a Circle of Love and a safe haven to let your feeling's out.
Love, prayers & Angel Hugs,
