My daughter Angel was taken home to be with our Lord Jesus Christ on August 4, 2009. She was 22 years old

my only daughter and my oldest child. She was well loved by so many. She left behind her 1 1/2 year old son who is now 3 years old, her high school sweet heart she was engaged to be married to and the father of her son, her 17 year old brother who is now 19 and myself her Mother and her Dad.

She was a beautiful young lady who loved life. She loved her family and friends. She loved the Lord and loved Education. She had LUPUS and this particular active stage of her illness the doctor could not get her condition under control. I went home to take care of her believing that she would be alright.

It was 3 months into her care that she passed away in my arms at home one morning. I have had a very rough time dealing with her passing. I have many ideas of how to honor her memory. I feel that I am strong enough to be able to follow through on some or at least one of my ideas to honor her memory.

Thank you for sharing your stories with me. Reading the stories on this site have helped me to rekindle my desire to do something to honor my daughter's memory, and to focus on the positive aspects of her life instead of on myself and my Grief.

God Bless All of you. My you continue to receive comfort during your time of Grief.

Angel's Mother

Finding Emotions Inside of Me
by: Anonymous

Thank you for your story. Reading it helped me to realize that I have never dealt with the death of my brother on mOct. 8, 2012 and now my husband died last week on April 10, 2013. I feel I have direction to allow me to feel the emotions of both of these losses. I can stop trying to be stoic about facing each day. I do not know how to find my feelings. I have hope to begin now. Thank you.
