My son Daniel was murdered on July 10,2009. This is the worst pain I have ever dealt with. I miss my son so much . I feel like I'm in some sort daze or fog and keep waiting to wake up and it all be a dream. Daniel will be forever in my heart and I will always love him. I just need a little help here . I feel like I'm going crazy. thanks, Melinda
Hi Melinda, My name is Sharon. You will see my posts as Aunt Sharon. Jimmy my nephew was murdered in 2007. I want to welcome you too MOM's. I hate having to welcome new people here, because it means another persons child has been lost to murder. I am so sorry for your loss of Daniel. To lose a loved one to murder is devastating. There are no words to describe the pain and sadness. You have come to the right place. The Mom's on here are great and they know exactly what you are going through. My sister Shirley is Jim's mom and I am sure you will hear from her as well as many others. They can help you through this crappy rollercoaster ride you life has now become. Hang in there. Go down to the bottom of the Mom's page click on chat. Around 6 pm pacific time you will find the Mom's in there talking. God Bless
I am so sorry for your loss, this is the worst pain any of us have ever had to deal with. I can tell you it does lighten up but it doesn't go away. My son Jimmy was murdered 19 months ago. My sister Sharon is right you have come to the right place we all know exactly how you feel and what you are going through. Loosing a child is a very hard thing to deal with but loosing a child to murder takes on a whole different meaning and not everyone can understand that. Just to let you know you are not alone on this journey we are all here for you.

This is a nightmare, a parents worst fear..hearing those words and then knowing your childs life was taken by another. Some of us still feel like we are in a fog somedays but we all know what you mean. We are so sorry for Daniel but you have found us very quickly and that is good because we all will understand what you are going through when you need someone to talk to whether it is email, chat room, message board, etc. All of us our in different stages and have different circumstances but all share the same thing...Our hearts are forever broken, part of us died with our child and they will always be in our hearts and we will never let their memory fade. Just wanted to let you know how sorry we are for Daniel and if you ever need anything we are here for you...Laura & AV
I'm so sorry for your loss. The pain is excrutiating I don't know if it ever gets better I'm trying my best for my other boys.
My son Timmy was killed in July, 7/13/07. Just had 2 year angelversary he was only 15 years old. I miss my baby so much sometimes the tears come out of no where. You have found a great place, to help you thru, we all are in different stages, but we are all here for you no matter what. It helps to know you are not alone, not going crazy and what we all go thru is what they call so called "normal". I don't think I'll ever be normal again.
God Bless and I'm so sorry, please know you are in my prayers.
I am so sorry to hear about your son. July 1 was the one year anniversary for Kaylin's murder and it still hurts everyday, but with MOMS I am able to keep surviving. I am sorry you had to find us but glad that you did. This place is a life saver. All of the MOMS are loving compassionate people and we will be there for you. We are here for you to vent, rage, share your stories and we will be here to cry with you and support you. Once again I am so sorry for your loss.
I too am so sorry for the pain and heartache you are going through.The word nightmare doesn't describe what you are going through as I have always woken up from a nightmare and found things normal again.Nothing will ever be "normal" again.You will always have a need to memorialize your Daniel.We here all understnad this,as keeping their memory alive is the number one concern.There are many,many moms here that help to do this for me,and bring a smile as well as a tear through their video's and candles etc.I hope and pray for you and your family that the love you have for Daniel and he for you will remain in your hearts forevermore.This is a great site,the people here care so deeply for one another and our children.I am glad you found us.Your pain is still so raw yet.May God our Father help you through this most difficult time.Love Always and God Bless

But, what has to be done, has to be done. Welcome to MOMs...My thoughts and prayers go out to you and to your family...Love and hugs, Julie
From one MOM to another I am so very sorry that your beautiful child was taken from you. It has been 6 years since I lost my daughter and one thing you discover is that you do not get over it you learn to live with the pain. This website is a Godsent for us as the grief process within a family is different but within the MOMS family it is the same every mother knows your pain and each MOM will help you in any way they can. Please know you are much in our thoughts and prayers. You now have many sisters please call upon them whenever you want to and you will be lead and sometimes carried through this painful painful journey. Again I am so very sorry about Daniel.
