A Lifetime Journey, do I survive the death of my child.


The Death Of A Child – The Grief Of The Parents:

2 years, 2 months, 19 days he is gone today, that’s 811 days — maybe I should play the pick 3

He was my son, he is my son and always will be my son.
I have been trying to come up with some words of comfort for someone who has just lost her daughter a little over two weeks ago, and I can’t seem to find the words.

I remember the first year – to me it was probably more anger driven as well as so much curiosity I had, the research. The who what where when and why did this happen.

I searched and found this pretty much sums it up – Sucks to loose a child, it really does.

Children are not supposed to die…Parents expect to see their children grow and mature. Ultimately, parents expect to die and leave their children behind…This is the natural course of life events, the life cycle continuing as it should. The loss of a child is the loss of innocence, the death of the most vulnerable and dependent. The death of a child signifies the loss of the future, of hopes and dreams, of new strength, and of perfection. – Arnold and Gemma 1994, iv, 9, 39

When a parent dies, you lose your past; when a child dies, you lose your future. – Anonymous

This space is with me all the time it seems. Sometimes the empty space is so real I can almost touch it. I can almost see it. It gets so big sometimes that I can’t see anything else. – Arnold and Gemma 1983, 56

A wife who loses a husband is called a widow. A husband who loses a wife is called a widower. A child who loses his parents is called an orphan. But…there is no word for a parent who loses a child, that’s how awful the loss is! – Neugeboren 1976, 154
