I am not a mother but On April 6 this year my 18 year old brother was stabbed out side our cousins house. His name is shawn. The person that killed him was the mother of his child's boyfriend. He was arrested and is going to be facing trail soon. The person that killed him amitted it in his statement that he did it for street credit and did not want to be consider as a pu***. Right now he is trying to get his statement supressed from the trail because he said he didnt no my brother was dead untill the end of the statment his mug shot that they keep putting in the paper has him with a big smile! and he is trying to do everything he can to get off.. My brother shawn has a daughter who turned one years old a week after he was killed. It has been so hard for me and my mom but we been getting by day by day..

You must be talking about Bette's poem. It's a beautiful poem I kept a copy it just gives me goose bumps. I don't think she knows what an impact her writing has on people.
I'm so sorry to hear about your brother. I'm on here because My nephew was murdered. Although I have lost a son and niece. It's so hard when they are murdered.
One day at a time is about the only thing you can do. The pain for myself has not eased yet. They say it takes a long time.
I am sorry sorry to hear about the loss of your brother. Our daughter was also stabbed to death. This senseless tragedy (he lived in her building and should have been in jail or a mental hospital) has devasted our family. I have two other girls whose worlds are totally empty now because of this loss. This website and Lisa's memory of life page keep us going. I don't know where we would be without them and all the moms here. You have come to a good place to vent, rant, rave, share stories or whatever you need to do to get through this. Take care.
I am so sorry for your loss we all know the pain you are feeling you can share as much or as little as you like with us. We will all listen and share with you too.
My son Jim was murdered on Dec. 16, 2007 he was shot in the chest the POS who murdered him is now serving 40 to life + 8 years. I pray you and all the moms get justice for your brother and their sons and daughters.
Hugs to you
Jimmy's Mom Shirley
Beth I am so sorry for your loss. It does affect the whole family. The sibling relationship is very important too and hard to lose. My son misses his sister a lot and will be beginning therapy with a grief specialist who specializes in kids this week. He thought he was holding up but he is slipping in ways too. I just wanted to say I am so sorry and I hope that you and your mom find some comfort here.
Hello Beth, I'm sorry for your loss. I know it is so hard on the family as a whole, my son was only 15 y/o when he was shot in the back of the head walking home from the store with his oldest brothers friend. he died at the scene and the other boy died 2 days later. My oldest son had to ID his baby brother laying on the pavement, so I know it is devestating I see what my 2 sons go thru over the loss of their baby brother, the life they had is now completely different and not having him in our lives leaves a huge hole in all our hearts and souls. I pray you find comfort in coming here everyone is so kind and helpful, and it is so good to know that what I feel is normal and am never judged for anything I say, feel or do. Our lives will never be the same. I pray God gives you and your family some peace and comfort. My son's trial is coming up in December right before the holidays so it is so hard right now for us all.
