I think that most of you…

that are following the WWBD Memorial page know me enough to know that I am a very open book kind of person. I will open my heart to those that want to know the good, the bad and the ugly. This journey is one that I hope none of you have to become a part

Grief is a very difficult thing.

It is something that you just can not explain to someone. What I do say to those that are curious is to close your eyes and imagine for just one minute losing that one person that you feel would be the most painful to you and then imagine feeling that pain for the rest of

Silent Grief – Child Loss Support

When our child died, the word “grief” became very real to us. We cried millions of tears, and we know that our heart will forever have an empty place reserved only for our child who is no longer living here on this earth. Society has often tried to tell us that we’re “stuck in grief”,

Another holiday without my Bri…

The holidays just do not have the joy that they use to. Every year the kids have gotten Easter baskets with a few small gifts but the last couple of years I haven’t even thought about shopping for them. One of the boys asked where the baskets were… I welled up with tears. It is

Today I have no words…

No words to express the pain and heartache that I feel. Today should have been a day of celebration to celebrate BriAnna’s 20th birthday but instead it was a somber tearful day. Today we decided that we would go out for dinner as a family and I believe that we went where BriAnna directed us.

Through the last 13 months…

I have met so many parents who have lost a child and have heard so many horrific stories. No matter the story I say to myself, “I couldn’t imagine.” No matter how our child passed the bottom line is that our children are no longer with us. As parents we hope every night that we

Today has been a tough day…

Last year at this very moment I was sitting on the couch watching TV with Randy laughing and enjoying life. I was exhausted from my long 12 hour shift but still had a sense of joy. At about 8:30 pm I heard both BriAnna and Brandon laughing about something downstairs. I told Randy “there those
