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 Jenifer, I will be prying that all goes well for you today. :) Thank you, dear one, for your kind words. I'm just so grateful to God for bringing all of us together to pray for each other, and help each other on our endless journey. The praying, the sharing, the crying; no matter what, we are here for each other. Oh how I thank God for all of you. :) To God be the glory! Amen

Well moms, thanks for all your prayers.They really helped out because they were going to set his child support payments at 17.77 a week but after speaking with the judge he set it at 45.oo a week. It should of been more but I will not complain. I will just give thanks unto the Lord.

Hey Miss V, glad to see you posting again. I know you have been posting for awhile but I think I speak for eveyone when I say we miss your ramblers. I will keep praying for you to get stronger everyday and don't you stop your PT. That is very important and it really can work. I see it with my residents all the time at work. We love you sis!

Love to all,
Amiee's mom

Jennifer--I'm glad things went well for you this morning. Thank God for judges who see that dads need to SUPPORT their children! Casey's dad had problems in this area, and now he still has to pay but doesn't get the privilege of seeing Casey again. He is eaten up with guilt because his mom says he realizes that he could have been a much better dad when Casey was alive but instead, was just trying to cause trouble for our daughter by not paying. I'm just glad that Casey doesn't have to go through the visitation, crummy living conditions when visiting with her dad, and bad talk about her mom when she was with him. We can pray until we are blue in the face (?) but unless they (dads) are willing to change, there's not much we can do. What a hard lesson for him to learn!! I kind of feel sorry for him, but you know what, maybe he will treat his other kids (by another marriage) better now. Oh well....I've got to get off of that subject because it always gets me heated up. I pray for you, Jennifer, and Elizabeth, that God would protect you both from any negative comments or criticism; and that God would protect Elizabeth when she sees her dad.
Miss V--glad to see you back a little more. Yes, I love flowers; they are so colorful and it gives me a feeling of accomplishment when I see them come back every year bigger and better than ever. We are getting some much needed rain so that will make them bloom all the better.
I don't know if I'll be back here today or tomorrow; I've got to reinstall my computer (UGH!!) and that may take a while.
Love and prayers to all!!

Good Morning dear Angel mom's,

I would like to Share with all of you the memorial I had made for my daugher. Our dear Angela here at our circle worked so hard on it to get it just perfect. My heart is just pounding bc I am so grateful for her love for us parents in our grief and knowing how hard it is for us. She has carried her own grief and pain in loseing dear family. My heart goes out to her in her own grief but she choses to take her pain and turn it into something wounderful for others.


Here is the URL for Amiee's memorial.
All you have to do is click on it and it will take you to her memorial page.

God bless you all and have a wonderful day.

I'm sorry everyone I was thinking this was the link to her memorial page and not her memorial here at Beliefnet. I will try to find it and post it.

Hi dear Jen, I was fortunate enough to have a 'sneak preview' of Aimee's page and you know how beautiful I think it is - she look's every bit the Angel doll that she is, :-). Yes, our dear Ang is very gifted and generous, she certainly has a wonderful God-given talent for always making the 'right' page!
It is very beautiful Jen, I love it,
Much love & Angel Hugs,

there is no feeling in the world like losing a child. my son matthew took his life at age 22 three years ago and it still feels like it "just happened". it gives me honor to offer prayers and comfort for your son who i hope has found a friend in my son in the hereafter. blessings to you and yours...may we find peace of heart, mind and spirit someday. willow

Welcome moomeer to our circle of love. This is a place you can come and let it all out and all will understand and give a shoulder to cry on without being judged. I am very sorry we have to meet this way. I lost one of my twin daughters in 1993 and the pain is still very real but over the years the pain has grown less intense.
Your pain is still so new andwe have all been there. I pray the Lor puts his healing hands on you and comforts you.

Amiee's mom

Hello all!!! Sorry I haven't posted in a LONG time. Guess I've been wrapped up in my own depression and just haven't had the energy. I needed to come today to let everyone know that Phyllis (prayerbunny) has been having computer problems and hasn't been able to get into the circle. She wants everyone to know she is still with us in spirit, and still praying for everyone. She said to tell everyone hello!!! You can still email her right now. She hopes to be back in the circle soon.
Angel Hugs and Butterfly Kisses!!!!

Dear Jenn, the dates for our beautiful angels are so close, it almost scared me when I looked at Aimee's memorial. She was such a beautiful little angel. My angel, Marcus, died from S.I.D.S. at the tender age of ten weeks. But he leaves dimes everywhere now to let me know he is still with me! :-) I haven't been very active lately, but I wanted to drop you a note.

With God's Love

Dear (((Moomeer)))

My name is Angela and I have endured triple suicides in my family...

Dad died at 36 from a heart attack when I was 11, mom took her life March 7, 1972, when I was 14, my sis took her life at 43 March 7, 1999 and my bro took his life at 40 July 10, 2000.

There are some answers but mostly questions....why didn't they call me for help....

I won't go on b/c I do not want to trigger myself...

I have a website called My Lovely Garden and there are several Memorial Pages for young adults who took their lives there....

You will see a section on my sitemap where I offer Webpages for your dear loved ones and I am happy to make them for anyone who needs/wants one...including you for your dear son

All I ask is that if you are able to, make a small donation so I can keep the site going...

Kids these days are taking their lives when they are depressed and sometimes a bad event happened like getting told your partner does not want you anymore leads to a suicide...

It seems like they don't know how to cope with distress like 30 years ago...

My deepest condolences to you as I have not lost a child...

Please visit my site and write me at as I have some options for webgroups for Parents of a Suicide if you are interested...

Thank you and know that this is one of the most insidious diseases around...

I cannot imagine your pain at loosing your dear son at such a young age...

Please keep posting as you will get a lot of support on this Circle of Love...

I'm glad you found it...I await to hear from you...

Angela xoxo

Hi all!! I'm back (finally) after getting my computer reinstalled and I had to get a new email address so here it is: It's just slightly different than before but what a difference! I'm logged in here with a slightly different name, too, so just to let you know it's still me. I was looking back at all my posts and I can't believe that I never mentioned that my daughter (who lost the two girls in the car wreck) is expecting a baby in May. She's having some complications so they may have to do a C-section the end of this month; she's fighting that because she wants to go to all the end of school activities the first two weeks of May. (Her son's kindergarten graduation, Casey's class' 8th grade graduation, end of school programs and playdays.) Please pray for her; this is her 6th pregnancy and the baby is getting just too big for her to carry full term (so the dr. says), and her amniotic fluid level is low.
It's good to be back among the 'caring' again; I've missed you all!
Love and prayers,
Grandma Charlene

Angela, I can't get onto your site today; even when I start from scratch and type in the address on my internet search site. HELP!! :o)
I wanted to see Aimee's site but it wouldn't let me in. I also wanted to put your site in my favorites and the girls' too.

4/10/2006 13:26

moomeer I lost my 23 year old son on 11/5/05.Some days it feels like he will be home from work and others ( like the past few days)days I can't get him out of my head and then the tears start flowing.

4/10/2006 14:29

Hello Willow (Moomeer), yes, it's the ultimate of loss for a parent and it rip's you in half. Love is Eternal and the Bond that can never be broken and that Bond is still very real between you and your precious Matthew.
That's so sweet of you to pray for Shane and I and it's my honor to do the same for you both.
Now that we've connected, I know that Shane and Matthew have too.
Be gentle with yourself and take it one hour, one day, at a time.
And you're always warmly welcome here, God ove you,
Love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

4/10/2006 14:38

Donna, I am so sorry for your lose and thank you visiting Amiess memorial. Yes, she is a beautiful angel as I'm sure your little angel is also. Amiee did not die of SIDS and I am unsure of how she did die but I know one day God will reunite us together and we will be one big happy family again. Until then I will let my grandparents and her Aunt Sandy as well as all of our Angels kids from here take care of her. I know she is in good hands.

Love and Butterfly hugs,
Amiee's mom

Hi dear Charlene, it's so good to have you back, you've been missed! Yes, I had to do a double-take when I saw your new Username, :-). Thankfuly your computer problems have been fixed.
No, you never told us your daughter was expecting again, Congratulations to you all! Yes, of course I'll say a prayer for her.
Father, you know that Charlene's daughter is pregnant and soon to deliver. Please let her delivery be an easy one with no complications, I humbly ask through Your Son, Our Lord & Saviour Jesus, Amen. Thank You Father.

Yes, I couldn't access Angela's site yesterday either, it just wouldn't load properly.
Much love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

Dearest Lask, my heart goes out to you, you've only recently experienced your loss and the pain and grief are so raw and biting right now. I know exactly what you mean, I was the same way during the early days and in the shock phase of grief. I kept expecting Shane to come through the door yelling "Mom" or pick up the phone and hear his voice. It just doesn't feel real to you yet and that's OK, its perfectly natural to feel that way. Hang in there, you always have us and our love and support.
Much love, prayers & Angel Hugs,
