Maybe this essay will help you a little:

That is an incredible and beautiful piece, thank you for sharing it.

I am sorry for you loss. Dear friends of my parents had the same experience over 20 years - and it didn't seem to get better it was still there. Not nearly as sharp but the pain was still there.

DragonflyBlue I made it through the day. Went to bed early as I was exhausted.

Thank you for all your kind words and support. I kept checking the thread throughout the day and it helped so much.

You all helped make a difficult day a bit easier to bare.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

punkrockmommy I am very sorry for you loss, i had a friend who commit suicide and i understand a little bit. I could never imagine lossing a child. I am very sorry and i cried while reading your post.
Maybe make a picture collage of her that you can look at and remember her.

lauradbg I am so sorry. I can only imagine what you feel and it is unthinkable.

My sister lost her son after he was born prematurely and lived for one week. She's plagued by a lot of should have beens as well. I'm seeing how she's going through that thinking too. My sister read somewhere, "He is everywhere he will never be." It gives her some comfort to think that, and is a reminder of her unbelievable loss.

I am so sorry for your loss.

DarkHorseMama Oh, DB. I understand a bit more now when you said this morning that you couldn't sleep, and needed something to keep your mind occupied.

Because of you, and sharing your thoughts and memories of Marrissa here, she has become a part of my circle. Someone I think of, even though I never met her. Isn't that a powerful thing? The memories you shared of her are so special, and the things that made her a unique individual. You won't forget her. Those memories are your treasure from her.

Wishing you peace and solace today.

purplegirl Your memories of her are so touching. I am glad you found a safe place to share them and people who really care about your hurt and loss.

Himom I'm so very sorry for your loss...

goodcents I am so very sorry.

Have you though of writing down things, even on index cards, as they go past your mind? You will never forget, but it is a real and actual concern which might make the grief sharper. If you take some time to write about her, and your memories, could that help?

ColoradoMama I feel very honored that you shared the story of her with us. I am so sorry she is gone. Please, share stories of her any time you feel like it.
