I am glad to see this topic on your forum, as I'm sure there are many others like me out there who feel the need to connect with others in like situations. I lost my son 6 years ago at the age of 3. I still find yomim tovim so difficult, why doesn't this get any easier?

hi
i am so sorry to read about your loss. I know that it is realy hard going through the chagim without your son. We also had a loss recently in our family a close reletive of ours lost there son a few month ago in israel. he was a commander soilder his jeep that he was driving together with his friends was attacked and he together with his fellow solders were killed .
our reletives r devastated with there loss not only did they have to bury there 19 year old son there was nothing left to bury. this was there first born there pride and joy and there pain is unbearable.
no one should have to go through such pain in there life. may hashem give you the streghth to continue and may your sons neshama be a good zechus to you in the shomayim , i am sure that your son and my reletives son r looking over there families and praying for them everday.

Dear Helpless Mom:
I am so sorry about your pain and loss. I cannot begin to imagine how you feel and I daven to Hashem that I never should. I know that 'Chai LIfeline' offers bereavement counseling and they even have Shabbos getaways for parents who have lost children 'lo aleinu'. Perhaps you should contact them. May the Ribono Shel Olam strengthen you at all times, especially the ones that are extra difficult to bear. My heart is with you.

I actually do alot of work for chai lifeline and am aware of all of their bereavment retreats. However, they cater mostly to parents who have lost children thru ilness.

I am so sorry for your loss and wish you only hapiness in the future. I don't think for a moment that your loss is any less than mine, it is simply different. While I mourn the person my son was becoming, you mourn the child you never got to know. If you ever need a shoulder to cry on or a listening ear feel free to contact me ( via the admin. on this site)

I lost an almost three year old a few month ago. It was sudden and unexpected. I didn't know until it happened that pain can be so intense, but as time passes I'm slowly coming to terms.
