  • On Mothers Day May 9th 2010 the Lord took my son Zachary Lee Miller home. Zachary had just celebrated his 21st Birthday. I was blessed as everyone that knew him to have had him in our lives. There was no such thing as a stranger to Zach, he made friends with all. Zach had the biggest heart and kind soul. Words can't express how deep that precious boy touched all of us. April 30th 1989-May 9th 2010

  • As I read these poems I realize I am not the only one who hurts everyday. People tell me it gets easier with time but I still hurt I miss my sons giggles his smiles and his beautiful eyes. You see I had my son for 3 months and 5 days he was born 8/22/91 and died the morning before Thanksgiving on 11/27/91 It really makes it hard to celebrate the holidays. but I push myself and at times I hide away from everyone and cry, my son Andy would have been 20 this year and all I can do is put something on his grave instead of giving him car keys I have to give him flowers or toys to me he is still my baby. I really feel for those who have lost a child my son passed to SID'S but now we find I have a genetic heart condition that could have been the cause and it hurts so much more to think my health has took my baby boy. I keep everyone in my prayers that has lost a child and that you never forget their smile, there voice or their smell.

  • Five weeks ago my beloved son Jamie my first born was killed in an accident. My world was turned upside down an the grief was at times nearly too much to bare. I didn't believe someone could hurt so much. I take each day as it comes, some days are worse than others. My heart is broken my Jamie was only 23 years old and the father of a wee beautiful girl Layla she is the image of her dad. What keeps me going is the thought that my boy is up in heaven with the angels. He was such a loving boy and would have helped anyone. I know he is still with me in my heart and I know I will see him again. He leaves behind his two sisters an wee brother. God rest his soul and keep him safe. And to everyone out there who has lost a child may god comfort you in his prayers as he does me and remember your child is always with you in your heart x

  • My son passed away Jan 9 2012. He had just turned 26 on Christmas. The emptiness I feel is over whelming .I try to be strong but it is only a front. I never thought a heart could hurt this much and yet keep beating. I just need to know he is safe in Gods hands and someday we will be together again. I pray for all parents who have lost a child .

  • I feel the same for the parents that have lost there loved ones. Because just 5 months ago I lost my son he was only 3 years old. My son passed away on October 28, 2011 I know that I still have 3 girls but it's not the same without my son because he my only son that I had. It's hard for me to let go of him because he was always with me and I fell to pieces because I can't see him anymore. It's hard for me because I was holding him in my arms when he died. It just broke my heart I miss him so much that nothing can be the same with my son. My prayers go out to others parents I know how it feels I thought I was going to go through this.

  • My son Kion Taylor passed away October 15, 2011 a day I will never forget, he was 16 years old. I keep playing the conversation over in my head that we had that morning, and in his own way he told me goodbye but I just didn't understand at the time until he was gone. God let me knew that Kion was all right and he was HIS child by placing a picture on my cell phone of Kion going to the light with Jesus. This is my testimony I know that through it all God is good and HE cares about our every situation. Just continue to praise HIM through your storm.

  • I lost my son on Nov. 15, 2012 through suicide, he was only 18 years old. No words can describe of how much we miss him. Everyday I see him around me. I pray someday the Lord will take this pain and replace it for joy. I know he's in a better place and I know his pain is over now, but his still my baby boy and I still miss him everyday.

  • I lost my son Chad on July 13th 2012 at the age of 33. His room mate came home from work and found him on the living room floor. That day was when my heart broke in many pieces and I still can't forget that day seeing him with his arms crossed and gone. I didn't get to say good bye or that I loved him. He left me my one and only grandson that is a beautiful memory of him. But I hurt everyday and feel so empty. But I know he wouldn't want me to be sad everyday so I do my best to smile and cope each and everyday that comes.
