[n pain.

I know I haven't been around for a long tme and there are many of you who do not know me.
I am in great pain and I need friends to talk to.

On Friday, 12 13 14 my son died.

Needless to say, I am devastated. Michael was my only child.

I heard him die and those sounds will haunt me for a long time, He was dead by the time the paramedics got here.

Thankyou for listening.

There will be beauty in the person.
If there is beauty in the person,
There will be harmony in the house.
If there is harmony in the house,
There will be order in the nation.
If there is order in the nation,
There will be peace in the world."

Kate, words fail when presented with life's biggest tragedies. I am truly sorry for your loss. I will pray for peace for you and your son.

You are among friends here. Vent as needed.
I'm Dan.

Kathleen, I'm very sorry. I can't imagine the pain. I don't even know what to say.

Words simply aren't sufficient. There can be no greater pain than to outlive your child....

Kathleen, words are never enough to express condolences over the loss of a loved one, especially a child. I cannot know exactly what you are going through, but I can sympathize in a way that, thankfully, not many can. Two years ago this time of year, my son was dying from cancer. Nancy and I were with him right up til the time he went. I'm soooo sorry. Nancy and I will be praying for you.
The name's Greg

I'm devastated to hear that, Kathleen. You and I have both lost spouses, but losing a child is another thing. I'll be thinking of you.

My wife and I lost our first son 9 days after he was born. That was 15 years ago, and we still aren't the same. I'm sure you won't ever be able to accept what's happened, but I hope you can let those around you know that you love them.

You have my sincerest condolences, Kathleen.

Tile Your World,
cause' painting sucks!
