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 all my dear sisters, AngelMoms, gosh, it's very quiet here, I pray and hope that everyone is alright, enjoying some moment's of peace that can be so fleeting at times. If you're not though, there's nothing more than I would love than to hear from you or to just check in and say Hi!
Charlene, you must be busy with your Grandparents Circle, it's wonderful that you started it!
Remember my dear sisters, AngelMoms, my love and prayers are with you always, as well as those special Angel Hugs,
Sandy

Hi Sandy! Actually, the grandparents prayer circle is very quiet; after you all posted, that's all I've gotten. I'm just waiting and praying that God will send those who need help; I believe He will in His time.
I am enjoying a rest after the 'circus' we went through last week; but I believe that God will bring good out of what was meant for bad for us. He is faithful to sustain us through fire or flood (or evil); Praise His name! I too pray that all of you are well and enjoying the days that the Lord has given to us. Bless you all, dear sisters!
Love,
Grandma Charlene

Hi dear Charlene, happy to see you responding! Gosh yes, 'circus' is right, I pray nobody was traumatized by the stupid hacker, preying on the feelings of bereaved parents, big shame on them, hope Ang is doing alright as well.
What you could do dear sister is Post at the Grief and Loss Board about your Circle for Grandparents, that will give you more exposure - as it is right now, only we know about it, so by telling other's, there just might be some Grandparents who are looking for the support, love you can share with them. Give it a try!
Much love, prayers & Angel Hugs,
Sandy

Thank you Sandy; I posted at the Grief and Loss board like you said. I'm still praying that God will bring those who need help in His time. Today is a tearful day for me; I didn't realize it until I sat down at my computer that today is 18 months since Casey and Carey have been gone. I received an email this morning from Casey's stepmom; she is hurting too, and I cried for her.
May God bless all of you today!

SPECIAL DATES LIST: JUNE
Please remember our sister Kay (kalycec53) this month. Her son's birth date and homegoing date are both this month. Joshua's birthdate is June 12 and his homegoing date is June 15. I visited the memorial website last night that Kay has done but I can't seem to be able to get onto it this morning. Remember Kay and her family in your prayers this month, especially on the 12th and 15th. Thank you.

Hi my dear sisters. Yes the Circle is quiet and I agree with you both, I think that our Angel sisters are taking a break from that awful week "circus" that we went through, there are very bad people out there, if they only knew that our emotions are so very fragile, we can not afford to go through extra grief, but after all I am very glad that our dear sister Ang is fine. Charlene I am sure that after you posted at the Grief and Loss site, there will be grandmothers there, they will post my dear sister, remember? If you build it, they'll come. You have done a great thing and God is smiling at you. Special dates are so hard on us, my prayers will be with you so that our Lord will ease your pain and fill you with beautiful memories from Casey and Carey. Love Selva

Hi my dear dear sister. Today is the first day of hurricane season here in Fl, it is raining and nasty here today, I guess so that we won't forget to get ready for the storms. I pray that I won't be requesting urgent prayers this year. Thanks Charlene for reminding us about Kay's special dates, I won't be on line during those days because I am going out of town, but my prayers will be there for her. Have any of you heard from Angela? I am sure she is also taking a break, I pray that she is doing better and with no pain. Love you my dear sisters. Selva

Good Morning AngelMoms,
First of all I was stunned to hear what happened with Angela. But I got over it and now I'm just grateful and thanking God. The person that did this is evil and sad.
I am having all of the windows in my house replaced today (32) and all I have been hearing since 6 am is the sound of breaking glass, hammering and a really loud vacumm. I'm about to lose my mind!!!
Alex visited me in my dreams last night. I just love seeing him!! It was a strange dream...my husband decided instead of going on vacation, we would just go to the Dollar General store instead. Everyone was griping except for Alex. Exactly how he was; always making the best of a bad situation. I woke up smiling (and thinking to myself; you have some pretty strange dreams!!)
Today will be a good day for me; I pray everyone else has one also.
Prayers and Hugs,
Susan from Louisiana

Hello, my name is Deb and I lost my beautiful 16 yr. old daughter Jessica on 12/12/04. My heart is broken forever and a part of me died inside. While I do believe in God my faith has wavered since I lost my daughter. I've prayed for answers, but nothing makes since anymore. We are not suppose to bury our children. I pray for all those parents who have lost a child for God to bring them strength to survive.

I just received an email from Angela; she says 'hi' and she will start posting again after she rests for a few days. She went to the doctor yesterday and she's improving, just very tired with migraines and needs to rest. She sends her love.

Hello Susan! Good to see a post from you again; we've not officially 'met' but I've been reading past posts and remember your name. Hopefully the workers will be finished today!? The noise would be terrible, plus the 'invasion' of your privacy would be unnerving. The day our daughter had the car wreck (and our granddaughters were killed), I turned off the wrong burner on my stovetop and left 5 or 6 chicken breasts boiling for about 16 hours. We came home to a smoke-filled house; fortunately there was a lid on the pan and nothing else burned. I had a cleaning company in my house for almost 3 months, cleaning closets, drawers, cabinets, everywhere the smoke penetrated. That was very stressful.
I'm glad you had a good dream last night; I've had dreams about my granddaughters that have made me happy too. It's almost like God gives us glimpses of them so we don't have to let go all at once (so to speak). I'm glad you're having a good day; those are very welcome when they come aren't they? Gives us a rest in between sad memories.
Love to you,
Grandma Charlene

Hello ladycove/Deb,
Welcome to our circle of love and healing; as many have said, we're sorry for why you are here but we're glad you've reached out for help. My first step to healing was when I posted here in Sandy's prayer circle; these ladies will encourage you, cry with you, and pray for you. Who knows best (except God) what you're going through than another mother who's been through it too. I've not lost a child but I've lost 4 grandchildren; it's not the same as a mother's loss but it is still very painful. Have patience and the other moms will be posting to you with encouragement and lots of love. I pray for your strength to return, too; God is able to bless you abundantly above all that you could ever hope or ask.
Welcome, sis, and love and prayers to you!

Hi my dear sister Susan. First of all I am so happy for you that you had a dream with Alex, I know that made your day, it is a way for us to see our kids again, I know what you mean, I feel the same way every time I dream with Solange, I wish it could be everyday. OMG, 32 windows at the same time could be very very noisy I hope that they will finish it very soon, by the way it is so nice to see you posting again.Love you my sister and my wish to you is more wonderful dreams with Alex.

Hello dear Deb. Welcome to our Circle of Love, I am sorry we have to meet this way but I am glad you found this Circle. We all understand the pain my dear Deb, I lost my only child Solange, 20 years old, on Aug 15, 2002, like all the moms and grandmas here will tell you, this is a place where you will find understanding, love, prayers, a place where you can let your pain, anger, dispair, frustations and tears, we will all share with you. There is no judgement here, we all know of that horrible pain that rips our hearts out, I have also have gone with the ups and downs with faith, many times I've been so angry at God that I have refused even to talk to Him, but He knows my dear sister, He understand that we are only humans, and that this is the ultimate pain any parent or anybody can go through. Please feel free to posts here anytime you wish, you will find lots of wonderful mothers and grandmothers who will pray for you and listen to you, and once in a while and based on our experience we can offer some advice. God Bless you my sister Deb and be sure that Jessica already has lots of friends with her, all of our Angel kids will be there for her also. Love Selva

Hello our dear Sue, great to see you posting again! Wow, 37 windows, that's quite a bit of glass! Just think how nice it'll look once they're finished though, :-). Aw, yes, I love it so much when I dream and Shane's in it, everything seem's so right, when you wake up, you're still feeling the warmth of the dream. Yes, I hope too that you have more wonderful dreams with Alex in them,
Much love, prayers & Angel Hugs,
Sandy

Hello dear Deb, another warm welcome to this Circle, I'm so happy you found your way here! It hasn't been very long since you lost your precious Jessica, you're still very much newly bereaved, God love you. Losing a child is the ultimate of losses for a Parent, a part of you does go with our child, how could it not. It's very normal to have your faith belief's shaken, or even be angry at God, He's big enough to handle it though and love's you still. The questions, emotions we go through are all so hard to comprehend, our grief and pain bring's up so many, many new emotion's that we never knew we had before, I'm sure you've experienced that by know. Please post here whenever you want to, this is your Circle too. Together we can all walk through this valley of pain and loss and understand how each other feel's.
Love, prayers & Angel Hugs,
Sandy

Hi. I'm new to this board. I am the stepmom that Charlene is talking about. Casey was my step-daughter. I loved her soooo much. I am an EMT and responded to their car accident. The funny thing is that I wasn't even supposed to be working. I had just dropped my own children off at school and heard the call. I didn't plan on going until my work called and asked if I could help. I said I would and got headed out there. In the back of my mind I had a real uneasy feeling. I kept thinking to myself that I knew the intersection where the wreck was but I didn't know why. About halfway out there I screamed to partner to floor it because that was Casey's road. When we pulled up on scene my worst fears were confirmed. Casey was actually still awake when I got there. I looked at her and screamed at her to hold on, but by the time I got to her side of the car she wasn't awake anymore. I walked away from the car. The helicopter crew was on scene then and took over. I couldn't handle it. I got in the back of the ambulance and took care of her younger sister who was, thankfully, not seriously injured. I will never forget that day. Every night when I close my eyes, I can see Casey in the backseat of the car, looking at me with that "help me" look on her face and there was nothing I could do. I pray every day that God will erase that memory from my mind. The hardest part was pulling my girls out of school that morning to tell them what had happened. I feel guilty for being so sad all the time becuase she wasn't my child. But, I love her so much. Please pray for me to have peace. Thank you for this wonderful prayer circle. It is truly wonderful. Thank you.

kimemandjakesmom,
Hi, this is Charlene; I'm so glad you emailed me the other day. Hopefully we can stay in touch. And the ladies here will help and support you, too. That must have been awful for you, seeing Casey like that! I'm so glad that I don't have that vision in my head; it's hard enough just imagining it. My heart aches for you! Bless you! The sisters here will take good care of you!
Love,
Grandma Charlene

Hello my dear sisters!
Yes, I'm working today, but I decided to take a break (short one) and check the Circle. Friday, my hubby was very sick with his Diabetes, his blood sugar reading's were extremely high and his shot of Insulin didn't bring it down much, so I took him to Emerg. They gave him a stronger dose and kept us there for a few hrs., to make sure it came down enough - Praise God it did, but whew, what a scare - he's already had one heart attack, so I worry about him all the time. That took care of Friday and of course yesterday and today I have to work, so that's why I haven't been posting as regularly as I normally do. Please say a prayer for my hubby, appreciate it my dear sisters,
Much love, prayers & Angel Hugs,
Sandy

Hello dear kimemandjakesmom,
A warm welcome to the Circle, happy you posted. I didn't know Casey had a Step-Mom but of course you would go through the same grief and pain as well, God love you.
That's every EMT's nightmare, that they're going to answer a call about their own family, and it happened to you - I just can't imagine how painful and shocking it had to be for you, seeing it was little Casey! I pray too that the disturbing memory fade's with time, but take comfort in the fact that the last person's face that Casey saw was someone who loved her a great deal and she in return, and that was you.
You post here anytime sweetie, we're all one family who offer support, love, compassion, understanding and never any judging to each other, you consider this Circle and family a part of you too,
Love, prayers & Angel Hugs,
Sandy

Yes, dear sister Sandy, I'll definitely keep your hubby in my prayers! It's no fun spending time in an ER, much less worrying about your hubby. I'm also praying that you get some rest. Thanks for keeping us informed about what's going on with you!
Love you, sis!
Charlene

Hi dear sister Charlene, thank's so much for keeping my hubby in your prayers, his level's were high again this morning, but once he gave himself his shot of Insulin, they dropped down dramatically to a good number. Ugh, yes, Emerg., and Hospital's in general, don't like spending any time at them.
It's a beautiful day here, so I transplanted some flowers I had bought into our Balcony Containers and re-potted my aloe vera plant, it was getting root bound. I put my little Buddy out there with me to sing along (our pet Canary, PJ) he just love's the outdoor's and I like fussing with my flowers, plants, and soaking in the sun, :-). Hoping and praying your and everyone else's Monday is a good one too,
Much love, prayers & Angel Hugs,
Sandy

Hello to all! There's an interesting article here at Beliefnet that I read, it's about a woman who lost her husband and daughter, and she write's about her grief and pain. I can identify SO much with the shoes,

Joan Didion: Grief Becomes a Part of You
Author Joan Didion talks about how losing a loved one can make a perfectly rational person feel like she is losing her mind.

Lots of love & Hugs,

Hi Kimemandjakesmom. Welcome to our Circle of Love. I can just imagine the horror that you went through when you realized it was the girls in that accident.I am so sorry about that last scene is still bothering you, but like our sister Sandy said, just think that little Casey knew you were there with her. This pain is very very hard, and even if Casey was not your own daughter, you loved her like she was, so it is very painful for you also.The are no words of comfort, but you will find here, lots of understanding, prayers and love, we all understand the pain and everything associated it with it, like I always say, this is a very complicated pain, it brings all kinds of different feelings that eventually we have to deal with it, but the prayers and love that you will find in this Circle, it will help to cope with it. Just think my dear sister, this separation its just for a while, we all will be together with our Angel kids again, and this time forever. My love and prayers. Selva
