Optional question where you can tell us more about you, your child, your reasons to be here, or simply introduce yourself.
My daughter, Marci, passed away on May 8, 2005, Mothers Day, at the age of 14. She was diagnosed with an Anaplastic Astrocytoma, Grade 3 on June 17, 2004. Due to complications from a massive stroke and surgery, treatment was not an option. We brought her home to take care of her and she remained in a vegetative state for 11 months until her passing. Marci loved everybody and touched the hearts of so many during her illness. She will always be my Daughter, my Friend & my Hero.
Keeping you in my prayers today Kelly. I know the pain in your heart of missing Marci will never go away. It will always be there. Keep in mind today that so many people are thinking of you and your precious daughter today. Hopefully, you will feel her warmth around you today.
Happy 18th Birthday Marci!!!
Keeping you in my thoughts Kelly. I am the opposite, I prefer to be by myself and just curl into a ball for the weekend and sleep. It doesn't hurt as much if I am asleep, I can't think when sleeping.....
Have a quiet weekend Kelly, do something for yourself. Even if it is picking up a magazine and putting your feet up for a few hours. Or my favorite, find a friend and order a bunch of comfort food appetizers, eat till your ready to puke then go to bed for the rest of the day...lol
I'm here for you :)

I am so sorry your hurting so much, I know the ugly feeling. Knowing another milestone is passing without our girls here to celebrate. Eighteen, my just when girls are changing into wonderful young ladies ready to spread their wings. Something our girls will not know, another day and event we don't have them with us. You have every right Kelly to be anxious and sick to your stomach, I don't think the "if onlys" ever go away. I am two years out and you are five years out. It still hurts like day one, every day.
I am not on here much either Kelly. However I feel like we have a true connection through our girls loss.
Thank you for coming to me when you needed a "cyber friend" and a big "cyber hug". I feel honored you thought of Abbey and I.
I am here anytime you need to talk. Sorry it took so long to get back to you today, I had written this long email back to you while at work this morning, not sure what the heck I did but I lost the whole thing.
I will keep you and your beautiful Marci in my prayers, you can be sure on the 5th I will light a candle next to Abbeys and say and extra prayer for you.
I will not tell you she is in a better place, I will not tell you her time her on earth was done. What I will say is our girls should be here with the people who loved them more than any one person could ever imagine. Delete Comment
I was thinking of you today and thought I would drop in to say hi. We have made it thru the "holiday". How about you? Unfortunately, for my kids mommy is not much into celebrating. Just wish I did not have to go thru the motions of being happy, when I am not.
Keeping you and yours in my prayers
