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 all my dear Angel sisters. I am still trying to cope with our dear sister Ang's passing, yes I know that she is really happy now, no more suffering for her, she really had a lot while here on Earth, she really really suffered, but never told me (us) about cancer, I talked to her a few times, when she was going through depression and all and she never mentioned the word cancer, she was a great soul, she is, and I am also very sure that as soon as she can meet our Angel kids, she will tell them all about us, now our kids have a great aunt in Heaven. I will also pray for her dear son Sean, he is a great man and a wonderful son, his mom was very proud of him, she used to tell me all the wonderful things he was doing , helping and teaching all those poor people, teaching them the way of God, I am also sure that Ang knew that they were there with her. God Bless them all. Selva

My dear sister Charlene, you have done so much for us, I Thank God you found this Circle of Love, thanks again for the list, you have done a great job, even though I know that you are going through a rough time now. I just wanted to tell you, that even though people act in a strange way sometimes, they are still grieving, I think that sometimes their belief system needs to heal , it is crushed when something like this happens and we all have ways of fighting it, some people are affraid to cry, they think if they start to cry they will never stop and they hold it in, I know that your daughter is going through a lot of pain, she does not know how to fight it or let it out, one of these days something will trigger it, any little thing, because she is hurting, remember we live in a society that views tears as a weakness, for some crying privately may be OK. and other think that if they see another person crying it will bring their weakness afloat, and they will start crying and never stop. Your daughter will go through her own process, and the longer she will keep it in, the longer she will cry in the long run. Yes it is not healthy to try to ignore the pain (the past) but it will come sooner or later, and my humble advice my dear sister, if it happens in front of you, I only have an advice, like my pshyco tells me, "you grab your own tissue, because if I hand one to you, it could send a message like "hurry and stop crying", so you grab your tissues and cry as much as you need, remember, if any little issue arrives and you see your daughter crying, we all cry for ourselves. My prayers and love will always be with you. Selva

Oh Selva, thank you so much for your 'humble advice'! Yes, I know she's hurting and doesn't know how to express her grief and I feel like I'm partly to blame for that. By my not knowing how to grieve when we gave her first baby up for adoption, I shut her out then and didn't know how to help her grieve either. I need to email her and apologize for that. Maybe that will help her; I don't know. Thank you so much for caring enough to share that with me!
I know what you mean about not knowing about Angela's cancer. I wish I had known, but what could I have done? I feel like I could have helped her, but it sounds like the ca had taken over her body. I'm just sorry that she had to suffer so badly with the pain. I'm sorry that I'll never get to talk to her again, or hear that laugh of hers again. Sean emailed me and said he would be going through all of her things for the next month and then he would shut down her computer and disconnect it. I'm wondering about Ang's website, what will happen to it. It's a shame to lose all of that wonderful work she put into it; it would be nice if someone could take it over and carry on in her memory. If any of you have any ideas on that, share it with someone who could do that for her.
Thank you all for your love and support! I pray today, Heavenly Father, that you would reach out and comfort all of my dear sisters here on this Memorial Day weekend. Father, that you would give them peace and hope, and most of all faith in Jesus our Lord. Father, give them a heart to seek the truth in Your Word, a heart that yearns for You as a deer pants for water. Fill them up, Lord, with your presence and give them joy today. I pray especially for our sister Sandy as she 'celebrates' Shanes birthday tomorrow. Father, give her good memories of his birth as well as happy and joyful memories of all his celebrated birthdays. Father, reach out and wipe her tears from her eyes and give her joy and peace. In Jesus name. Amen.
((((((HUGS)))))) to you all!

Dearest AngelMoms
It has been so long since I have posted, but something led me to sign on today. What a shock to read about Angela's passing. Her "Lovely Garden" was a beautiful place to spend a quiet, reflective moment. She is now in the LOVELIEST garden. I can see her walking through the flowers and getting hugged by all of our Angels.
A lot has happened; some ups, some downs. But the Blessing is that I was never alone. God rejoiced in my moments of triumph and lovingly picked me up when I fell.
Sorry I have been a stranger for so long.
Miss V: We got some catchin' up to do neighbor. I got eggs coming out my U KNOW WHAT!!! Need some??
Sandy: Thank you for never forgeting about me. I asked Alex to bring Shane an insane amount of balloons for his birthday tomorrow...
Selva: Hola mi hermana...
Marci: I'm terrible about answering emails; but I make up for that in prayers for you and your family...always...
Looking forward to sharing with everyone else.

Oh, Susan, your post is an answer to my prayer. I'm Charlene and I've been 'appointed' to do a Special Dates List (mom's name, child's name, child's birth date, child's homegoing/heaven date) so I can post or email when a special date is coming up. Sandy gave me your name but didn't have all the details. Now you've provided most of what I need. I've been trying to email you but your 'mailbox is full'. My em is mct1@ckt.net if you want to email me instead of posting your em address on the prayer circle. Thank you Father God for bringing Susan here today!

(((Special Day Prayer)))

For:

Angel Mom: Sandy
Angel: Shane
Shane’s Birthday: May 28th

Dear God in heaven,

There’s an angel mom who needs you today
I ask that you help her along life’s way
Give her peace of mind and also a smile
As she treasures fond memories of her beloved child

Such memories are seldom hard to recall
Because those are the best memories of all
Although her heart aches to see her child
Let fond memories take over and give her a smile

Let her know that other angel moms
Are storming heaven with prayer
Let her know that if we could
We all would be there

Keep reminding her that someday when her work here is through
She will know the awesome joy of greeting both her child and You

A heavenly reunion that will never end! Until then … God,
(((Special day peaceful moments))) … I ask for my friend!

Dear Angel Mom's and Dad's

Angela Christie is alive,

I have been hacked; I was in the hospital for my pancreatitis and I just got home and turn on pc and find all this stuff going on...

I am alive, very much alive....

Someone hacked somehow and wrote to Charlene and unknowingly she gave out my website URL, not that she is responsible in any way, it was a hacker and I am enraged and feel so violated and just furious that anyone would play with Bereaved Parents families. I cannot even BEGIN to imagine how you Bereaved Parents feel!

I have spoken to Charlene on the phone we put 2 and 2 together and realized I had been hacked.

There has been some suspicious activity on my site for some time which has been monitored closely, noting IP#'s and that is why I changed the names of the pages of Charlene's granddaughters and Cheyenne's page and why also, Jennifer, Amiee's page is not listed on the Sitemap.

I have to change the name of Charlene's granddaughter's page again, but I want you to all know that Detective Jones of the internet fraud unit is on the case and she assures me that everything possible will be done to find out who is responsible for this act. My internet provider will also be investigating and cooperating with the police.

I also have to change my email address so please hold all emails as they will be retuned to you.


I deeply apologize for this horrible event and please know the site is fine, I just checked it and changed the password.

Thank you and God Bless.
Angela Christie

Dear Angel Sister- Angela, I'm thrilled to know you are still with us. I'm still praying for you. I hate the trouble you are going through with the hacker. I believe he/she will be caught, that's in my prayers also. Anita

Our dear Ang, nothing make's us happier than knowing you are still with us!!! We were truly of course mourning your passing here, we were in shock when we received the letter and we still were until I found out this morning from Charlene that you were very much alive!! Praise God it was a Hoax!! But a very cruel, heartless one, this person pretending to be your son knew SO much about you, I wish I could get my hand's on this person myself!! You may want to tell Caseygal over at Christian Faith & Life Board, I posted there about your 'passing'. Yes, the Police should be able to track down this person with their ISP number, I'd also call the Calgary Police about it aw well.
Anyway, the main thing is we can all exhale now and relax, thankfully you're still with us!!
Much love & Hugs,
Sandy

Yes my dear Angela, I am also very very happy to know that you are still alive. Like our dear Sandy said it was a very cruel joke, we really don't need any more grieving, but Thank God that you are alive. Welcome back to Earth my dear hermana. Ha ha. Really happy Love Selva

All my dear sisters here, my heart cannot thank you enough for all your loving posts with such kind words, prayers, etc., to help me get through Shane's Birthday yesterday! All you dear, dear sisters are so special to me and I am blessed by each and everyone of you. It certainly made the day much easier, reading all your Posts and your prayers for me, thank you, thank you!
Miss V, that is such a beautiful Poem, it pulled at the heart strings and i will treasure it for all time!
Sue, SO nice to see you posting, dear Marci too, you've both been missed so much around here! Susan, clean out your mailbox, :-).
Our dear Anita, you're such a prayer warrior, in your own pain, reaching out to me in prayer and such kind words, I love you all!! You're all very special to me,

Hi all! I'm so glad to see Angela posting here (posting anywhere!). :o)
And I am very glad that we helped you, Sandy, on your special day. God is good and without Him we couldn't have helped you as much as we did. By lifting you up to Him, He could lift you up too. We couldn't have done that on our own, no matter how many nice words we could have said. Bless you today, too!

I wanted you all to know that I've started my own prayer circle for grieving grandparents. Thank you all for your posts; it's like giving potted plants at the opening of a business. LOL You all are very special to me. If you click on search (under Prayer Circles) then type in my first and last names, the circle should come up.
Love and prayers to you all!

My dear sister, Angela,:) ~ Words cannot express how overjoyed I am to click on here and find out that you are alive and well, and still here with us. Oh, I know how upsetting it had to be to find out some low life *&(%#@# with nothing better to do had done this evil cruel thing. But I have determined that I will not allow it to steal my joy for very long and I hope you do the same! Finding out that you are alive brought a very BIG SMILE to my face … and a huge "THANK YOU, JESUS" from my heart and soul. I told someone in an email recently {I think it was Selva], that I was not ready to let you go; and now, praise God, I/we don't have to. :) I pray that the authorities will find this evil nut and put him/her away, OR OUT OF BUSINESS for a longggg time! Sis, I want you to promise me that you will take a few deep breaths each time your anger surfaces. I know it will be hard to do, but you must not allow this incident to interfere with your health and healing. Let the powers that be do the work and you just keep right on praising God and allow Him to take good care of you! This is one of those occasions when you must remind yourself to say … “Jesus, will you get that please?”
Much love and prayers,
Verna

Hey dear Sandy! :) See, I knew our earth angel was sending us a sign! :) Only thing is, she and God was trying to let us know in a spiritual way that she was still our "EARTH Angel" and still needed here very much! :) Oh, I am so glad you liked the poem. Hubby could tell that I had something heavy on my mind all day yesterday. When I tell him I ain't talking to or seeing anybody today, he knows exactly what that means! Ha-ha! Trying to pray heartfelt prayers and deal with the compassion I was feeling for you on Shane's special day, and also grieving the loss of a very dear friend proved to be a little much for me. It was one of those times I felt I had to just "Steal away to Jesus!" :) I thank God that our prayers were helpful to you on yesterday, and I join you and the other angel moms in thanking God that our dear Earth Angel is still here with us. :) Much love, & God's peace and powerful blessings,
Verna

Dear Charlene, ~ God bless you for starting a prayer circle for bereaved grandparents! I just got around to checking a few emails and discovered the one with the link to the circle. I also submitted a post there last night or early morning. I just know that many grieving grandparents will find it a safe place to express their feelings among others who have walked in their shoes. I know that God will bless your grandparent’s circle of love!
Much love & prayers,

Maybe, you can send me some by my grandson who is now a 7th grader. Oh, I forgot, school is out! Ha-ha! Anyway, we'll try to think of a way in the near future.

Oh yes, dear Miss V, I loved the Poem and have printed it out to keep it preserved (just in the event that my PC crash's, God forbid!) I also see that I posted twice, so as you always say to us, Double the Post, Double the Blessing! You rest those hands of your's, don't over do it and take good care of yourself,
Lots of love, prayers & Angel Hugs,
Sandy
