I wonder if you folks would agree--?

I think there should be a special word to describe mothers who have lost their children. I have been very lucky in my life. I have one child, a daughter, and she is healthy except she smokes. She does have some mental issues however. But, I have a beloved BFF who lost a younger sister to cancer a couple of years ago and her son around that time. She puts these lovely poems and such up on FB and it just breaks my heart. How can a mother withstand the death of their child? I think they should get a golden star or something. And what do you call such a person, a saint? The pain that they withstand must be horrible.

I think it must be rather like an addiction in that you have to deal with it on a day-to-day basis. Tough. Sorry to hear of his loss. It must be aggravating not to know what actually happened. "never did find out who did it" sure sounds ominous.

Dont ask please, there are no words to describe such pain, we lost my brother, all sudden in 42 hours, my sole brody (38 years old), and I have no words to describe the terrible pain my mother is going through. As we believe in resurrection, I think the only hope she has is to meet him in heaven soon. Blessings celticeagle .... dainy

I am a mom to 6 living children and 2 who are not. I am Mom. People ask me how many kids I have and it is hard to answer only in the respect that we have a different well blended family not because we are missing a few of them. I also have a child that just turned eight even though he wasn't supposed to make it to birth. His body is wearing out faster than most do and he was almost taken a few years ago. I will always be his Mom. I'm not sure if there is a name for those parents left behind that would mean as much as Mom and Dad did.
