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.

I guess I am just that old grandma type.
And that, our dear Lee Ann, is a BIG compliment! Bless you for being that kind of person to children,
Much love & Angel Hugs,

Hello all my angel sisters. It's been awhile since I've been. A really long while. Since I have a new computer and no longer have to go to the libary to post, which I havent done in some time either because of working two jobs, I had tried to come here with no luck. Our dear Sandy finally sent me the link to get here, bless her heart. I am so thankful that she did. I was missing you all. I do have a new email address as well as my yahoo address. They are
It is great to be back and hope to get caught up soon on the posts but I believe that will take some time.

Love and butterfly hugs to you all,

Hi our dear Jen,
Great to see you here, you've been missed! You must be very happy to have a Computer again and not have to go to the library anymore to use one - actually I bet the whole family is happy to have one again! :).
Welcome back,
Much love & Higs,

2/12/2007 10:25

Welcome back Jennifer! It's so nice to have a computer that works isn't it. Yes, there are a lot of posts to catch up on since you were here last. I hope you have been getting the Special Dates list emailed to you; if not, let me know and I'll send it to you again. I don't even want to imagine what working 2 jobs and taking care of a family is like. Your Elizabeth was 15 in Dec. wasn't she?
Love and (((HUGS))),

Hello Sandy and Charlene, oh yes how nice it is and I have this as protected as I can get it. All my spyware and anti virus. Anyway, yes Charlene my daughter had a birthday in December. It was on the 20th and she turned 14, not 15. That is pushing it for me. I dont even want to think about it. Thats just one more day closer to 16 and I'm not looking forward to that.She is a good girl and listens very well but still, my baby girl on the road with all them crazy people. Just scares me thinking about it.

Take care,
Love and Butterfly hugs,

Dear Sisters,
I'm suppose to leave tomorrow for the wedding. We are under a winter storm warning. I would really appreciate it if you would pray I can get out. Thanks, Jane

2/13/2007 10:34

Prayers for good travelling weather and safe travel as well dear Jane.
Have fun!
Much love & Hugs,

Hi my dear sisters. Sorry for not posting as often as I wish, but you all know that this is my busy season and I'm working until late at night. Just wanted to let you know that I still make time for prayers and you are all included in it. I am also praying for all of you that are experiencing this bad weather, I wish I could rent a big hotel and bring you all down to Miami for a few days so you can get away from the snow and ice.
Dear Jennifer it is so great to see you posting again, I'm glad your computer problems are over. My love and prayers to all of you. Selva

Hi everyone, ~ Hope you all had a peaceful day today. I slept most of the early part of today, so Iíll have to take my meds shortly to ensure that I sleep tonight. My 12 year old niece, Antoneí is coming over in a few to use the computer to do some homework, but Iíll try to get back on later after she finishes. She has to find a recipe online and prepare it so it may take a while. :)

I had a meeting in Bossier City last night that lasted almost 3 hours. It was so cold and windy out, I am still feeling the effects. :( It was also cold today but I did not get out today at all. :)Youíre all in my prayers and thank you all for remembering to pray for me. God bless!

Love and prayers,

Hi Sisters,
Thank you for your prayers. My plane did make it out, but much later than expected. The plane that was coming in to take us had to be diverted to Cedar Rapids, IA because it was running out of gas due to the long holding pattern. We were told this 10 minutes before we were to board. However, we did eventually get on and had to be deiced for about an hour. My wonderful family were waiting for me when I arrived around 1:00 AM. The whole trip was awesome! The wedding was fantastic, but cold. It was held outside in a beautiful public garden. The temp was about 45 degrees and we all had dresses designed for warmer weather. During the ceremony we could wear our coats, but for the pictures we couldn't. Last night I heard Orlando was expecting record breaking cold. It was real cold this AM. I almost changed my ticket so I could spend the weekend with everyone else. Glad I didn't. What do you do in Orlando when it's so cold? Anyway I'm home safe and sound and very cold! I also had a surprise waiting for me. Someone unknown to me put tulips, a goodie bag and a card on my front porch. The fellows I live with thought they belonged to the gal upstairs so they didn't take them in. This AM one of the guys looked at the card and discovered it was for me so he brought them in. Right now the tulips are beautiful but don't know how long they'll last. we had 4 below this AM. Can't figure out who they are from, except I think by the writing and fresh baked brownies it's from a female. I love a good mystery! Well, I need to eat, maybe will be back later. Love to all, Jane

2/16/2007 21:18

JANE, I'm so glad that you made it back okay. With all the snow and ice in your area, I was wondering about your flights. Of all times for the weather in FLORIDA to be cold too!! I'm glad you had a good time though! Yes, a mystery is wonderful as long as it is a GOOD surprise. It's been quite a while since someone has done something like that for me; I'm glad you were treated to something special since you do so much for other people.
I've been busy this week; an aunt passed away from cancer this week and her funeral was today. It makes me feel so old to know that my aunts and uncles are getting 'up there' in age. It still seems like they should be like they were when I was a young girl. Some of the relatives I haven't seen since the girls' funeral in 2004 so we had a lot of catching up to do. Now I'm worn out so I think I'll go to bed early.
Love you dear sister!
Love and (((HUGS))) and prayers of thanks for your safe trip,

Good Sunday afternoon to all,

Here is a song we sing often at my church. I think it is so appropriate for this site.


What have I in this life
But the love in Your eyes
This empty world will one dayfade
Only Your truth will remain

Jesus, all I have is You
You're the hope I'm holding to
I might weep but still my faith
Rest in You
As the heavens hold the skies It's Your Hand that holds my life
And Your love will lead me on
When all else is gone

Jesus all I have is You, Jesus all I have is You
Jesus all I have is You, Jesus all I have is You
Is You...all I have, is You
All I have, All I have, All I have is You,

Tim Dobbelmann/Gabriel Brennan/Nate Brennan

It's the chorus that really gets to me, "I might weep but still my faith rest in You."

Pray this helps someone today. Love to all, Jane

2/18/2007 15:59

Sorry for all the bold. Guess I didn't put the slash in the right place after the title.

2/19/2007 09:09

Good morning all my dear sisters! You are each in my prayers today for a safe and peaceful day. May God bless you all!
Love and many (((HUGS))),

Hello Angel Moms, Hope everyone is doing fine today. I have a question for anyone who can help. Today, for the first time in a long time I went to visit Amiee's grave. Her tomb stone is really dirty and I was wondering if any of you have any idea of what I could use to clean it with. It is white marble. I would like to get the chance to go back out there and clean it but I dont want to use just any chemical on it. So, if there's anyone who can help please let me know. Thanks.
All my love,

2/19/2007 18:48

JENNIFER, I'm sorry I'm so late posting back to you, but I just got home from town. What is on the stone--dirt, moss? How about just soapy water and a soft brush? That's not an 'official' cleaner, just my opinion. Of course the soap would have to be rinsed off so it didn't leave spots. I hope that helps.
Love and (((HUGS))),

2/20/2007 08:52

My dear sister Donna. Just wanted to let you know that although all of you are in my prayers everyday I am praying some more for you today. Special days are so hard on us, I ask God to wrap His loving Arms around you today on Marcus special day, may He give you the comfort of knowing that Marcus is very much alive in Heaven surrounded by all our children and happily waiting the "Reunion" with his mom again and this time FOREVER. My love and prayers. Selva

2/20/2007 09:48

Hi our dear Donna,
Today is your beloved Marcus' special day, and these special days can be so hard and very painful to get through. You have the love, support of the Circle surrounding you as well of course God, you always have Him to lean on and please lean heavily on Him today, as the memories flood you.
Our dear sister Selva is right, Marcus is very much alive in Heaven, looking after his much loved Mom and one day you will be re-united with him again!
We're here for you and we do care,
Much love, prayers & Tender Hugs,

2/20/2007 11:38

Dear Donna, Please know I join Selva, Sandy, and all the other angel moms in heartfelt prayers for you today [your beloved Marcus' HD]. I pray that God will give you His peace as only He can; especially on special days. Please know our love and thoughts are with you throughout today and in the days ahead.
Love, hugs, & heartfelt prayers,

2/20/2007 11:55

Hi our dear Jennifer, It's great to see posts from you again. :) Thank you also for the emails and also your prayers. I'm a little behind on reading/responding to emails, but hope to catch up soon. I am so glad you have a new computer! I hope to get one soon; before this one cuts out! It's been hinting for a long time. Ha-ha!

I think Charlene's idea is a good one for cleaning the headstone. You might also contact the business where you bought it, or ask one of the people responsible for keeping up the cemetery. Hope having several suggestions you will find one or more helpful in getting the labor of love done. :)
Love & heavenly hugs,

2/20/2007 11:59

Dear Donna,
My thoughts and prayers are with you always but especially today. I pray that God give you comfort and love and I pray that the light from Heaven and your precious Marcus surrounds you today with warmth. God bless sister.

2/20/2007 16:31

This is one of my favorite songs. It makes me think that our babies our looking down on us saying "don't worry about us".

I wanted to tell you how closely I've kept
The memories of you in my heart
And all of the lifetimes that we had to share
Live even though we're apart
But don't cry for me
'Cause I'm finally free
To run with the angels
On streets made of gold
To listen to stories of saints new and old
To worship our Maker
That's where I'll be
When you finally find me

No don't you be weary cause waiting for you
Are wonders that you've never known
Just hold on to Jesus, reach out for his hands
And one day They'll welcome you home
And that's when you'll be
Finally free
Finally free

I wish you were here, I wish you were here

And all of the dreams that you treasure
Will soon come together
And that's when your sorrow will find tomorrow
And you will rise again


We'll run with the angels on streets made of gold
We'll listen to stories of saints new and old
We'll worship our maker that's where we'll be
When you finally find me

I wish you were here

As recorded by Mark Harris-INO records

It's been a long time since I've been here. Things have just been "hard", since we lost my brother. I've had a hard time-my dad is having a really hard time. He literally cries all the time. He cries on his lunch break, he cries on his way home from work, he cries after he gets home, etc, etc. Anyway, I hope that things will get back to "normal" soon. Thank you all for your prayers and e-mails. I will try to get back on here a little more often than I've been doing. Please know that I am keeping all of you in my prayers(even though I haven't been on much)-I still think about all of you everyday. I'm at work, so I had better get going now.
Love you all!!!

2/20/2007 23:45

Dear Donna,
Sorry for posting so late, but I want you to know you were in my prayers today. I really do understand having an infant taken by SIDS. Special days are so hard because we wonder what our child would have looked like, or it's personality. I pray that God would comfort you and relieve you from what I called "the empty arm syndrome." Please know that Marcus is growing up in a perfect place. That thought has helped me through the years, my Elizabeth didn't have to suffer in this fallen world. love, Jane

2/21/2007 09:11

Dearest DONNA,
I'm sorry I couldn't get on here yesterday! I thought about posting something on the 19th and then I thought I'd wait and post on the 20th. Now I wish I'd gone ahead and posted on the 19th. I prayed for you, that God would surround you with His peace and love and joy as you thought of your Marcus yesterday; that God would give you a sense of wonder, thinking what Marcus is getting to experience right now. And I know that he is looking forward to you coming to be with him and experiencing all that he is experiencing; he'll be able to show you around and teach you (instead of you teaching him). How awesome is that?! I hope that the burden of Marcus' being gone will be lightened today as you thank God for the time that you got to have him in your arms and hold him. The ache will never go away as Jane said, but hopefully it will lessen with time.
Love and prayers and (((HUGS))) to you today Donna,
