Thinking of you  / Melissa Smith

Here on earth we are put together in families. Our loved ones become inexpressibly precious to us. We live in intimate associations. One gets so close to mother and father, wife or husband, sons and daughters, that they literally become a part of one's very life. Then comes a day when a strange change comes over one that we love. He is transformed before our very eyes. The light of life goes out for him. He cannot speak to us nor we to him. He is gone and we are left stunned and heartbroken. An emptiness and loneliness comes into our hearts. We brokenheartedly say "That the one whom I loved is dead." It is such a cold, hopeless thing to realize. Then, out of the very depths of our despair, comes that marvelous declaration of our Lord: I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. John 11: 25,26

Then we know! We know we have not lost our loved ones who have died. We have just been separated, and as long as we live there will be an empty place left in our hearts. To some extent, the loneliness will always be there. But when we really know that one is not forever lost, it does seem to take away, a little bit, of the sorrow. There is a vast difference between precious memories, loneliness, the pain of separation, on the one hand, and a sorrow that ruins and blights our lives, on the other hand.

Hope these words are of comfort to you my friends. Please, please know that you are always on my mind and in my heart and prayers. My hands are not better yet, in fact the left one is very numb right now, so it is hard to type. But even though I can't write every day as I did before, I think of you every day. In Christian Love, Melissa

Not now, but in the coming years, it may be in the better land: we'll read the meaning of our tears, and there, some time, we'll understand.

Dear Friends In Grief...  / Melissa Smith

The spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,

Because the Lord has anointed me to

Preach good news to the poor.

He has sent me to bind up the broken-

hearted,… to comfort all who mourn,…

to bestow on them a crown of beauty

Instead of ashes, the oil of gladness

instead of mourning, and a garment of

Praise instead of a spirit of despair.

Isaiah 61: 1-3

God will heal our pain. He will heal you.

He will guide you as you reaffirm yourself

without your loved one in the new life

he has given you in Christ Jesus.

Dear friends, I am sorry for not visiting

Daily, as I have in the past. Please know

that I have not forgotten you or your loved

Ones. I am still having a lot of pain in my hands,

arms, and neck. I am to have surgery on my

Wrist March 13th. Maybe then I can type

again without my hands going numb.(wish it

was my heart that was numb) Again, please

know that you are always in my thoughts,

heart, and prayers. In Christian Love, Melissa.

Seeing Past Today  / Melissa Smith Blakemoore.memory-of-.com
If we could see beyond today
As God can see,
If all the clouds should roll away,
The shadows flee;
Over present grief's we would not fret,
Each sorrow we would soon forget,
For many joys are waiting yet
For you and me.
If we could know beyond today
As God doth know,
Why dearest treasures pass away,
And tears must flow;
And why the darkness leads to light,
Why dreary days will soon grow bright,
Some day life's wrong will be made right,
Faith tells us so.
If we could see, if we could know
We often say,
But God in love a veil doth throw
Across our way.
We cannot see what lies before,
And so we cling to Him the more,
He leads us till this life is over,
Trust and obey.

Bereaved Parents Wish List


 
I wish my child hadn't died. I wish  I had her/him back
.
              

                     Y

I wish you wouldn't be afraid to speak my child's name. My child
lived and was very important to me. I need to hear that she was
important to you also.


                  Y

If I cry and get emotional when you talk about my child, I wish you
knew that it isn't because you have hurt me. My child's death is the
cause of my tears. You have talked about my child and you have
allowed me to share my grief. I thank you for both.


                  Y

Being a bereaved parent is not contagious, so I wish you wouldn't
shy away from me. I need you now more than ever.


                  Y

I need diversions, so I do want to hear about you, but I also want
you to hear about me. I might be sad and I might cry, but I wish you
would let me talk about my child; my favorite topic of the day.


                  Y

I know that you think of and pray for me often. I also know that my
child's death pains you too. I wish you would let me know these
things through a phone call, a card or note, or a real big hug.


                  Y

I wish you wouldn't expect my grief to be over. These first years
are traumatic for me, but I wish you could understand that my grief
will never be over. I will suffer the death of my child until the day
I die.


                  Y

I am working hard in my recovery, but I wish you could understand
that I will never fully recover. I will always miss my child and I
will always grieve that she is gone.


                  Y

I wish you wouldn't expect me "not to think about it" or "be
happy". Neither will happen for a very long time, so don't frustrate
yourself. 
                  Y


I don't want to have a "Pity party", but I do wish you would let me
grieve. I must hurt before I can heal.


                  Y

I wish you understood how my life has shattered. I know it is
miserable for you to be around me when I'm feeling miserable. Please
be as patient with me as I am with you.


                  Y

When I say, "I'm doing okay", I wish you could understand that I
don't "feel" okay and that I struggle daily.


                  Y

I wish you knew that all of the grief reactions I'm having are very
normal. Depression, anger, hopelessness and overwhelming sadness are all to be expected. So please excuse me when I'm quiet and withdrawn or irritable and cranky.


                  Y

Your advice to "take it one day at a time" is excellent advice.
However, a day is too much and too fast for me right now. I wish you
could understand that I'm doing good to handle an hour at a time.


                  Y

Please excuse me if I seem rude, certainly not my intent. Sometimes
the world around me goes too fast and I need to get off. When I walk
away, I wish you would let me find a quiet place to spend time alone.
I wish you understood that grief changes people. When my child died,
a big part of me died with her. I am not the same person I was
before my child died and I will never be that person again. 
       
                  Y
I wish very much that you could understand ~ understand my loss and
my grief.
But....
I pray daily that you will never understand.

Always with you...  / Melissa Smith (none)

Heaven knows what you've been through
So much pain
Even though you can't see
I'm not far away
Since you went away
I light candles and say prayers
Know that love still remains

Close your eyes, go to sleep
Know my love is all around you
Dream in peace, when you wake
You will know I'm still with you

Live your life from this day on
And love again
I know you'd do the same for me
That's the way that loves is supposed to be

When you feel those lonely teardrops
Rolling down your face
Just know my love watches over you
Always

Close your eyes, go to sleep
Know my love is all around you
Dream in peace, when you wake
You will know I'm still with you
I'm still with you

You are in my daily prayers, Melissa

If You Could See Me Now...  / Melissa Smith Blakemoore.memory-of-.com (none)

If you could see me now you wouldn't
shed a tear. Though you may not understand why
I'm no longer there. Remember my spirit that is the real me because I'm still very much alive,
I've just been set free, Oh, if you could only see!
I have beheld our Father's face and I have
touched my Savior's hand. All of Heaven's
angels rejoiced as I entered the promised land.
Beyond the gates of pearl I've walked on the golden streets. I've touched the walls of jasper and dipped my foot in the crystal sea. The beauty
is beyond words and nothing could compare,
I've seen your mansion and someday
I'll meet you there. Let Jesus be your
guide because His word will show you the way!
So please don't cry because we will meet again someday.

2006 / Melissa Smith (grieving Mom)

WISHING YOU & YOUR FAMILY

A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR
We've seen the passing of another year.
For many it's been filled with pain and tears.
We've seen our loved ones in their decline.
We've had to accept that they won't be fine.
Some of us had to say good bye,
To a CHILD, and we've all cried.
But there have been times in this past year,
That certain events have brought us cheer.

(even if it was a thought of our child)
There are so many friends that are on the list,
And I know there's names I will have missed.
But better friends I could not have bought.

(than those at memory-of)
And here is just a New Year's thought.
If it were possible that a wish could come true,
Then this is my New Year's wish for you.
May the coming year be full of hope,
And may we be given the strength to cope.
Let courage, faith and patience abound.
And let us pray that a cure will be found.

( for our broken hearts)
And now at the close of another year,
My friends, I wish you a Happy New Year.

Christmas Is Over  / Melissa Smith (grieving Mom)   Read >>
Christmas Is Over  / Melissa Smith (grieving Mom)

Christmas is over...

The New Year's almost here.

The tree lights are darkened...

I sure do miss you, dear.

The stockings are empty,

And so is my aching heart;

Yet, I need to tell you

Before the New Year's start.

I'll always love you.

You're always in my prayers.

If ever you need me,

My thoughts will be right there.

Although there is distance

Between us, I can smile;

Because I can hold you

In my heart, for just awhile.

I realize God gave me

This gift... I know it's true.

The gift that He gave me

Is all my love for you.

I don't know the reason

God gives and takes away.

I just know, this season

I turn to Him and pray.

"Bless all my loved ones...

The ones for whom I care.

Keep them in safety,

Until I can be there."

I know that God loves me,

And, so, He loves you too.

And, so, in His season,

I send my faith to you.

"Many of us, between the start of this holy season,

and the end, find ourselves filled with sadness,

missing the ones who cannot be with us.

We all have our list of bittersweet memories,

and the hardest day is the day after all the festivities,

when we realize how much we missed the missing.

To them, I dedicate this poem."

Remembering You...  / Melissa Smith (grieving Mom) (none)

Holidays are fast approaching
where tinsel and lights shine bright,
It’s the time for family and friends
to sing out carols like 'Silent Night'.
~~^~~
Perhaps a joyous time for many
celebrating the birthday of our Lord,
Which is the true meaning of Christmas
so why do many go out, and buy presents they can't afford?
~~^~~
Christmas parties at work and home
enjoying the food and being merry,
As decorations are hung
with mistletoe, holly and berry.
~~^~~
For some of us it's a blue time
when tears cascade so often,
No matter how hard we try
nothing seems to soften.
~~^~~
Whether you are alone
or surrounded by loved ones,
Loneliness is apparent
especially missing a child.
~~^~~
No matter what religion you are
and celebrate your way,
Just remember this one thing
for many of us it's just another day.

Remembering each of you in my prayers & in my heart. May God guide you through this holiday season. Love Melissa

THANK YOU FRIEND  / SELMA FLYNN BOBBO.MEMORY-OF.COM (friend)
It's the time of year when we're reminded to give thanks. Instead of waiting until next year to be reminded, Let's make every day one of thanksgiving; After all, each day is a unique gift. So, give a hug for no reason; Say I love you, just because; Share a smile with a stranger; Take the time to count your blessings; Don't take anything or anyone for granted; And end each day with no regrets. Thank you, my friends and family, For sharing, caring, laughing and crying with me. I'm truly blessed to have each and every one of you in my life And I am thankful you have allowed me To be a part of yours. May you and yours have a safe and memorable Thanksgiving. Close

MY CHILD  / SELMA FLYNN BOBBO.MEMORY-OF.COM (friend)
"MY child On the day God took you I thought that I would die I wondered where the time went? I asked alot of whys?? With people all around me I felt alone inside From all their words of comfort, I couldn't seem to hide, I thought I might be dreaming That I'd wake and find you here, I thought "This can't be happening." As I wiped another tear. On the day that you were laid to rest My heart broke yet again, I wondered if the pain would end, But mostly, I wondered when?? It's hard to be without you, At times the days seem long, Sometimes I just sit crying, When there's really nothing wrong. I wish we'd had more time, Before your life was done. I hope your resting peacefully, My precious child, Close

Karen,

I am so sorry for your loss. I just found out.  It's been so long, I didn't even know you had another daughter, but I knew you.  I don't know what to say.  There is nothing I can say.  This sadness is beyond words.

Love always, Dan Close

Remembering You  / Fredy Celis (Friend)

Everyday i think about you. Its hard to only hear you in my thoughts. You were the most honest and kind hearted friend i ever had. I could have never imagined that a terrible accident would take you away from all of your friends and family. You were too young, too innocent, and loved by more than you know. Even now i keep asking god why it had to happen to you. I'll never her you call me brother bear like you always would do, and ill never let one day go by in my life where i dont think about you. I love you brianna, very much and i always will...we all will. You'll always be in my heart with unconditional love, i love you sister bear...
