After the death of my son Michael, I joined an online support group. One of the mothers sent this site to me. I found this was a way to visit Michael more often. I find some peace in sending him flowers, notes and seeing the love and prayers sent by other caring people. I have added the names of other friends and family. If it is your wish to have their name removed or information added please contact me.
Dear Carol, I've visited your son before, but I guess I just read the cause of his death today. My beloved niece died from the cause which I wrote in her bio, but it was due to the effects of chronic alcoholism, which I did not mention because we all want to remember her in a positive way. We have remembered too that it is a disease which affects certain people. In her case, she had lots of chances to be helped but wasn't strong enough to save herself. Those who have friends and family members who commit suicide are, likewise, in a similar place with the rest of us. I guess it is we who have to make peace with the situation. Anyway, my sincerest sympathy on the loss of your son. I told my sister-in-law and her family that her daughter is whole, and beautiful and at peace and not longer fighting those demons. The same would be true for your son, and I know it doesn't help, because you will always miss him. Nothing can replace a lost child. I hope this expresses what I want it to. Your friend, Rosie Mc.
Shirley Hi Carole Life sure likes to throw hard curves sometimes and test how much strenght we have left in us. My husband is in a nursing home for 2 yrs now. Taking care of him at home as he progressed in his dementia for two yrs was the hardest thing I have ever done. I know now why they say that caretakers suffer so badly. I spent Christmas eve there with hinm but where else would I be. he would have done the same for me. He still knows who I am and is so happy to see me although he remembers little else. I am very tired and its taken a great toll on my health so one day at a time is still the answer I guess. Prayers are still all we have left sometimes. Gets me through the day.. Hugs from south Jersey from my house to yours.. Shirley

Hi Carol Hi Carol, My name's Amanda, I am Briston Murphy's cousin. I write to Briston quite often on find a grave but have never written you to say thank you for creating and sponsoring his memorial. It is greatly appreciated. I love talking to him via find a grave. Briston and I were really close in age and were really good friends too. I remember your Mikey and I know him and Briston were close too. They were alot alike. I can't imagine your pain as mine is so great from losing a cousin! Just wanted to say thank you, I admire your strength, and may we find a little comfort in the fact that Briston and Mikey continue to have a best friend in heaven....Thanks Again!!
