hello ladies, i hope everyone is doing as well as can be expected.I want to send some extra love to darien and shirley, i know this month is a hard one. i myself am coming up on my james' one year on the 24th. i don't know why but it is really getting to me that after that date, i won't be able to say "oh on this date last year james was doing this, or that"after this one year i can never again say that my baby was alive and doing something on a certain date, it makes it seem so final, and it makes him feel so far away. The little monsters that did this finally have a pretrial date set for may4th.i want justice for my baby, but none of this can give me what i really want, my baby james back.well, i just needed to vent a little:) love to all the MOMS xo
Gretchen, I totally understand How hard the one year anniversary can be. I think these anniversaries are always hard. Even after 6 years I still can't believe Keara is gone. I wish I could say something to comfort you. Please know that I will be thinking of you and your angel James on his angelversary.Also if you want to talk by phone send me your number and I will be glad to call you. Love ya, Darien
Hi gretchen,I know this is a sad and hurtful month not only the 24th but Easter was very hard.I don't even have the words to say how im feeling right now.Can't even talk to anyone with out feel in like im chocking.just not right the evil ones have life and our precious children are dead,dont understand gods purpose were being the ones punished not them.well I will be thinking of you and dariens mom. I miss my daughter so much. love all u moms Shirley
Gretchen. I couldn't hardly believe it when I read your post. I had the same thoughts about my daughter and grandchildren after the first anniversary had passed. I couldn't say 'One month ago was her baby shower' or 'Two months ago we opened Xmas presents,....and she was murdered twenty-six years ago. That is why it is so helpful and good that us MOM's stay connected. I know how hard this month is for you. I am so sorry for your son's death. You are in my prayers. Lovingly, Sherry J. Swafford
I am scared of that same thing. No more "he was doing this... so many months ago..." My heart goes out to all of you and Gretchen, you will be in my thoughts tomorrow as all of you are everyday...
Gretchen I just wanted you to know I am thinking about you on this day. The worst day of your life. I hope that you are able to get through this day with the support of people who love you. I am sending you hugs and love.
