The Double-sided Coin of Grief

A double-sided coin with two different and opposing sides adequately describes my heart after receiving the knock on our door that changed our lives forever. On August 13, 2012, our sons Aaron (26) and Steven (22) were involved in a fatal car accident. Our first-born son, Aaron, didn’t survive. Steven, our only other child,...


Just before 5, I opened my eyes to see Greg, sitting at the end of the bed putting his shoes on. And I began to cry.

He turned around to face me. “What’s wrong?” he said.

“It stopped hurting.” I answered softly.

“Stopped hurting?”

“My incision.” I lifted my nightgown to reveal my scar, still darkened by pooled, clotted blood beneath the surface.

“Isn’t it a ...


  Tragedy Passings are some of the most difficult passings to heal from.  We wonder if our loved one suffered at the time of their passing and because we place so much focus upon the moment of their passing, it is as if we are stuck in that moment, trying to...


I wish there was somebody I could honest tell,
That the life I'm living is my own personal hell,
I learnt speak aloud how I truly feel,
For the hurt it would because I could never heal,
I live for my family it's their life I'm leading not mine,
Life flashes by me so quickly I'm running out of time,
I try to please them all but I'm physically not able,


My heart aches for you dad why did you have to go?
I’m trying to hold back the tears and not let the pain show,
But I’m angry and sad dad, angry because you was took from me,
But mostly sad because in my life you can no longer be.




I know were apart now daddy but don't be blue,
Not a day goes by daddy that I don't think of you,
When you miss me daddy you can always call,
Or look at the picture daddy this one of us all,
Like I do in bed daddy when I say...


As tears roll down my face,
I know that your in a better place,
I'm sorry that we can't be there,
but that doesn't mean that we do not care,
in our thoughts you will always stay,
for every second that you lay,
I'm sorry I wasn't with you at the end,
but the love for you I will send,
Now's the time to say goodbyes,
so I hold back the tears and try...


Our hearts are with you,
our love is true,
I know times are tough but know were near,
anytime, day or night were always here,
we feel your pain but in time your heart will mend,
he will be...


My tears just won't stop falling,
my hearts just screaming and calling,
anger and pain is all I can feel,
accusations again for things I didn't steal,
harsh words came out, the truth was spoken,
a dagger in my chest, my heart feels broken,
I try my hardest to please them all,
I attend to their every beck and call,
no matter my battles it's never...
