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 sister, I join you in prayer over this troubled world, with the escalation of more violence in the Middle East. It's going to take nothing less than Divine Intervention with all of us praying for it, so that the hatred and killing will end. Our Blessed Mother Mary, please pray for us, may we finally wake up and realize that we are all God's beloved children
Much love & prayers,

Our dear Marci, we haven't heard much from you lately, I know you're busy with swimming, etc., but I also know where your heart is today of all day's. Your Sean Michael is a beautiful boy, lighting up Heaven in his own special way, yet I know you'd give anything to have him back.
My Candle is lit for you and he today, along with my love, support and prayers, and for your beloved Dad as well, such a difficult day for you dear one,
Lots of love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

I'm so sorry my dear sister Marci, it's not your Dad's Birthday today, my memory let me down again,
Love you, Sandy

Marci, dear sister you are in my thoughts and prayers today. I've asked the Good Lord to watch over you and to fill your heart with good memories and peace today and the upcoming weeks. Were all in this together dear sister and were all here for you. Love you sis. Anita

7/15/2006 14:48

My dear hermana Marci. Just to let you know that you are in my prayers and thoughts specially today. I know that Sean Michael is happy along with all of our Angel kids, but I also know how we miss our children, and the pain of not having them with us is just unbearable, we all understand, my prayers and love my dear hermana. Selva

My dearest sisters,
Thank you so much for remembering me. As you all well know what a struggle it is to get through those ďspecial daysĒ after a loss of your child. Your kind words and loving prayers were so appreciated.

Sandy, you are right about the 15th being very significant to me (and Selva too!) My son Sean-Michael was born July 15, 1985 and laid to rest August 15th, 2003. My father passed away July 15, 2005 on Seanís birthday. A guess you could call it a double whammy of pain!

My youngest son Evan graduated High School in June and is going to leave for college at the end of August. We are very proud of him. In less than three years our family has endured the tragic loss of 5 family members. The High School awarded Evan the ďCharacter CountsĒ scholarship. An award presented to those who have endured great hardship in their lives while continuing to display good citizenship, character and community service.

Evan is our baby...our youngest and the last of our children to leave home. I think that Evan going away to school has really snuck up on us. When you loose a child the schedule and order of things are all messed up. Sean-Michael was next to leave home for college. I am not ready for Evan or an empty nest!

I have been trying to cope with so much lately. My cup has been more than full with daily living. My father estate is still in probate and there is no end in sight!

The only light that I see is that with each day we seem to cry a little less. I donít think that a grieving parentís heart ever stops crying.

My heart and prayers are always with you,

With much love,

Hi our dear Marci, you made it through another special day, yes, a double whammy for you, Sean Michael's Birthday and your Dad's Anniversary of his passing. Gosh yes, the 15th day of the month has so much significance for you, Sean Michael's Birthday, his passing into Heaven and your Dad's as well. Yes, my precious Shane on the 15th and then our dear sister's Solange on the 15th.
We dealt with Probate Court after my Mom passed away and I know what you mean, it took over a year for it to be finally settled.
What a terrific Award, Scholarship for Ewan! gosh yes, that's something to be very proud of, I don't blame you, Mom, :-). And now you're going to join the 'empty nester's club' that's something else that's difficult to deal with especially when we've lost one of our precious children, more changes, adaptation's for us to deal with, they get so tiring after a while, don't they. It's a blessing in disguise I suppose that your day to day life is very full, it will help to take some of the edge off of Ewan's leaving the nest.
You're making some progress on your Journey if some light is peeking through, but you're so right, a grieving Parent's heart never stop's crying.
Can you see a 'dent' in that elephant yet?
Much love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

Dear God, ~ Thank you for your many blessings and especially for giving all bereaved parents/grandparents and others who have lost dear loved ones those divine peaceful moments for which we all pray. Thank you Father, for Charlene, and the wonderful job she is doing with our special day list. Thank you, Father, for all my angel sisters and their contributions to our wonderful circle of love. Thank you for giving us this safe place to come and express all that we might be feeling on any given day. Lord, we need you everyday to help us on our endless journey. Father, I pray for all my angel sisters daily. I thank you for the prayers that are prayed, and for helping all angel moms make it through those special days. Lord, we know you understand and will always be there for us in times of pain and sorrow. Please continue to give us the strength and courage we need to make it through those moments when we feel like giving up or giving in to the pain. Thank you so much for the times you give us a break by replacing our sad moments with fond memories; even if it means smiling through tears. In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; I pray, Amen.

Hello Dear Angel Moms, ~ Forgive me for being so long getting here. So much is going on here; I have not been online for several days. I am doing ok, but still have a long way to go. My blood pressure has been a little high for several days now, so I have been trying to take it easy and not get all stressed out over a lot of sad things that are going on in our area. Sue, I know you are glad you are on the other side of the river right now; especially with all the senseless homicides that are in the news. A lot are in our area and that can be so stressful.:( Angel moms, a prayer for protection is definitely in order. My blood pressure has been a little high for several days, so I am making an appointment today to see if I might need a change in medication. The good news is I managed to do my mile on the treadmill yesterday, even though I really didnít feel up to it after being up all night. Like a baby, I still have my days and nights mixed up.:( You are right, Sandy; rehab really is important; especially since I canít seem to give up my peanut butter cups! :)

Also please say a prayer for a family who lives across the street from us who suffered a loss. We are not a visiting community; therefore we only got the news a couple of days ago. We sent over food and a sympathy card today [yesterday now] as is customary in our tiny little neighborhood. The family [understandably] is in shock, and has been trying to make funeral arrangements, etc. so I have not been over yet; due to the fact that I am not very good at holding in my emotions. I still avoid funerals whenever possible. I donít know the cause of death, but hubby was told by the grandson [a 16 year old] that his grandfather was running a high fever, and complained of feeling very sick. They rushed him to the ER; but he died before they could run any test. He said his grandmother and mom are devastated and of course waiting to find out what caused his sudden death. All this, while trying to make funeral arrangements. Please pray for the Stevensonís family. As always, my heartfelt prayers are with you all. I am typing this offline and right now Iím having chest pain [not too bad]:)so I will sign on and post, then, God willing, sign on later to catch up on reading back post. I tried earlier, but the site was not responding.

Love and prayers,

7/19/2006 09:52

Hi Miss V; it's good to hear from you. The Stevenson family is in my prayers; that might be why you were having the chest pain. Mine hurts when my blood pressure gets high.
Yes, God is our Rock, our ever present help in time of trouble. I know I wouldn't be alive today without His grace and mercy.
You take care and continue with the rehab!
Love and prayers,

7/19/2006 10:36

Hi our dear Miss V, a beautiful prayer for all and yes, Bless our dear Charlene for taking the time and effort to make up our special list!
Hm, not good to get your blood pressure up like that, as Charlene say's, that could be the reason for your chest pain, so please have it looked at. Very glad to hear you're back at rehab, you're doing so well at it, so please keep going, otherwise I might be tempted to 'tattle' on you, :-). Ah, that's too bad, of course I'll say a prayer for your neighbors, God bless them,
Much love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

7/19/2006 20:36

AMEN, my dear sister Ms.V so great to hear from you, I have not catched you in AOL lately, I have been working until late, like right now , but you know that I always keep an eye for you. Of course we will pray for your neighbors my dear sister, and don't feel bad about not going to funerals, we all understand and I hope they will too, my aunt passed about 4 months ago and I told everybody, sorry, but I can not go, I do my prayers at home and my good byes, but the next funeral that I will go will be my own, I just can't go there since my Solange left, can not find the strenght and I am soryy if they (people) don't understand, as a matter of fact I have assigned a very dear friend of mine to take care of my funeral arrangements, I want no tears, just a very very happy party with booze and all, for I will be so happy that I just don't want anybody to cry for me, and he promised that he will do just that, lots of Salsa music, lots of booze and lots of jokes about me, ha ha I can't wait for that. Anyway my dear sister, please take care of youself, do you know my biggest fear? it is to have a stroke (family history) then I will curse even if I can't talk, that is the only reason I take care of myself, so we must, do you understand? I know you do. Please count on my prayers for the Stevenson's, and also count on my prayers for you and the family. Please take care my dear sister, give it up, and you know what I mean, we have enjoyed it for so many years, so enough is enough. My sister is still the same way, so I know that I will count on your prayers. Love Selva

7/19/2006 20:43

Hi my dear sister Charlene, yes I second what Ms V and our dear Sister in Chief said, you have done a wonderful work with your prayers,understanding and love in this Circle, and yes, for keeping our list for us, OMG what will I do without it. I work long hours for a while, sometimes even for more than a while, and even though I pray daily for all of you and my family other friends, special days are really important and it is so great of you to remind us all, because those special days are so important, we need a little extra prayers for those days, and thanks to you I am able to say those extra extra prayers, because I know that prayers works. Thank you my dear sister. Love Selva

7/19/2006 20:48

My dear Angel in Chief, I know that there is a heat wave going on North, ha ha, you should be in Miami in the summer, but I also know that we are OK wih the heat, air conditioning everywhere, that it is not an option when there is winter here, ha ha you should see the people here when it goes down to the 40's (rarely) then everybody wears coats and we turn on the heat, ha ha, I know, just go and swim in the Lake that should keep all of you cool. Love you my dear sister. Selva

7/19/2006 21:47

Hey dear Selva! How did the people years ago survive the heat without air conditioning? I guess because we're so used to it, we can't live without it. I had to get out today but I didn't want to; it was 90 degrees at 8:30 this morning. And that's not dry heat, that's humid heat when you lose your breath when you step outside. I've been in Arizona heat before and it is HOT at 110 degrees; but this Missouri HUMID heat is worse. It was 113 today and 107 yesterday. The electric bill will be high for this month! I hope you all are taking care of yourselves health-wise and enjoying your cool houses. Take care of the animals too that have to live outside; our oldest daughter's dogs have a small swimming pool that they keep filled with cool water for days like this. :o)
Love and prayers,

7/20/2006 07:59

Hi my dear sisters,
YES, it's hot here and very humid as well, so I know how you're feeling dear Charlene! My daily walk's are over at the Mall these days, where it's Air Conditioned, :-). Yes, thank God, we have the Lake right here on our doorstep, so it's a great way to cool off!
You're so right about our pets dear Charlene, some people tend to forget they feel the heat as much as we do, that's a terrific idea, having a swimming pool for the dogs - I put our little PJ outside early in the morning, and then bring him in around noon, when the sun and heat are the strongest. Anyway, enough complaining, it's summer and I'm going to enjoy it, :-).
Lots of love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

7/20/2006 08:11

Hello our dear Barb, (eudora)I hope you're still reading here, I know today is your precious Carol's Anniversary sweetie, and I wanted to post for you today, on a special day for you. We all know how hard these special day's are, time doesn't mean very much when you've lost your precious child, the memories come rushing back as if it was yesterday.
Our dear Barb, my love, support and prayers are with you today, and my special Candle is lit for Carol and you, please let us know how you're doing these days,
Lots of love, prayers & Tender Hugs,

7/20/2006 11:36

Dear sister Barb, my prayers are with you today. May the Good Lord wrap his arms around you and give you the comfort of cherished memories on this special day. Know that we love you and are thinkikng about you. Love Anita

7/20/2006 11:57

Hi dear sister Barb.
I'm thinking about you today and praying that God would give you peace and strength. Remember the good times with Carol Ann and know that you will see her again.
(Sorry I didn't post earlier, but I went to town early this morning and just got home. I was still praying for you, though!)
Love and prayers,

7/20/2006 19:55

Hi my dear sister Barb. I also hope that you are still reading in our Circle. Just wanted you to know that you are in my prayers today, I know how hard it gets in the special dates, everyday it is hard, but special days will trigger all kinds of pain, please know that my (our) prayers are with you my dear sister, may God grant you strenght and peace. Love Selva

7/22/2006 10:25

Our dear Charlene,
I just read that Missouri had some terrible storms, with loss of life and much property damage, along with power outages.
I pray you're alright and safe, please post and let us know, if you're able to,
Much love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

7/22/2006 15:03

Hi all! I'm fine; as far as I know we didn't even get a drop of rain last night. I hadn't even had the radio or tv on today so I didn't know about the storms or where they were. The temperature has cooled down considerably, though. Now I know what Texas calls a cold wave. HaHa! After having been in the 100-114 range last week, today it is just in the low 80's. YEA!!
Thanks, Sandy, for checking on me.
Love to you all!

7/22/2006 20:04

Hello our dear Charlene, Praise God you're OK!! Apparently it was terrible, hurricane force winds in Missouri, although I don't know exactly where. I guess New York City was also hit with a bad thunderstorm and 800,000 are still without power, yikes!
Yes, I know what you mean, ha, ha, it's not as humid here either, HURRAY! and I can once again breathe and have some energy back!
Anyway, so good to hear from you!
Much love, prayers & Angel Hugs,

7/22/2006 21:20

I did finally hear on the news that St. Louis had bad storms last night; that's about 5 hours northeast of us. I wish we could have had some of the rain, though. It's very dry here, but I guess that's just part of summer. At least the mosquitos aren't as bad as they usually are; that's a blessing in itself!
You all take care and have a good weekend.
Love and prayers,

7/24/2006 21:14

Heavenly Father Bless all of the parents that lost their child. I know Father we all are an elite group because you also lost your child. Lord I now know what it is to give up your child, you did it for us to wash away all of our sins. Thank you Lord. Bless You and Bless Your Son. All of this I am asking in your son's name Amen.
Hello to all. I am new to this. I lost my only son in January of this year. He was on his way to work and the police found him two blocks away in a neighbor's yard. He had an asthma attack and ended his Earthly Life right then and there. You all can view his Memorial site. It is listed under Riales, Derrick. Please pray for me because it has been very hard for us. He was one of a kind. I am planning on having a memorial service for him at my house on his birthday 9/2. My family and friends have tried to be supporter but they don't know what to say or do for me. I have always been a strong person but it is eating me up inside. God carried me through thus far and I know he will not leave me or forsake me. I need others who are going through what I am going through.
Your sister in Christ.
