I have been reading your threads and I can't stop thinking about you : My DH and I send our prayers and love. I know that you will get through this stronger but there is no way for you to see that now. I am sorry about the obituary. Maybe when you feel that you are ready you can write your own for them. I think it would help you heal that much more. My thoughts and prayers are with you, DH, and Connor.

I cannot imagine what you could be going through right now. I don't know that I would even be sane enough to think about a obit. My prayers are with you and your family. Maybe you should wait a little bit and then send a memorial a little later. That way you will have time to think about it.

Again...my prayers are with you mama

i guess i just feel disapointed about everything...even the funeral

today has been hard...seeing the bodies yesterday was awful
i kept begging them to move
it wasn't them... didn't even look like them...
the part that made them who they are is gone....
i want them back

today i feel like if i have to keep moving... cause if i stopped i would never be able to start again

Nina,
Just want to say again that I love you and am here if you need me. I can get a sitter and just come hang out. Whatever you need. I just keep thinking if it is this hard for me...I can not even begin to fathom the pain you are in. There are so many people here that love you, and need you. We really do. Especially Conor though. His face when he sees you just melts my heart. He is an amazing boy and he needs you so much. My life has been made so much better knowing your family in too many ways to count. You are an amazing mom. many, many hugs to you mama.

Oh mama. I am so so so sorry for your losses. Words really can't even express how heavy my heart is for you right now. Dh wrote our son's obit-there's no way I could have done something like that. I like the idea of a memorial, or sometimes I've seen our paper rerun them. (you may have to pay a little bit, but if it makes your heart feel better then it's worth it).

I do a memorial every year for either ds's birthday or his death anniversary. It helps ease the pain somewhat. I remember the pain of wanting that little body to move, and for it all to be just a bad dream.

Please know that you are in my thoughts, and my prayers as well.
