      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

  1. Loss of an Adult Child

    Happy Thanksgiving, my friends, Yes, the empty chair will be here, letting us know what we no longer have. But new people have joined our gathering...friends, who walk with us. They also know our beloved. May the good memories our our babies bring a smile to our face. May the next generations help us move forward while still caring our babies in our hearts. I love you, Brian. I am forever your Mother
  2. Loss of an Adult Child

    The sun is shining in Wisconsin. During the winter, sun is hard to come by. This morning, my husband said to me "I have more Christmas spirit this year than I have had in a long time." Even though I feel the pain of Brians death daily, I want to support my Husband and finally smile a few times during the holidays. i really hope others can find some joy this season. I do know how hard that is, but moving forward with the memories of our boy is work...hard work. Love to all my friends. Colleen, Brians Mom forever

    We celebrated my son, Aaron's 24 birthday. He was 14 when Brian died. We had a good time, but WOW do I miss my Brian. my husband and I are on the right. Aaron at the head and Michelle is on the left. so much news here. This time of year makes me a bit sad. Trying to enjoy. Colleen, Brians Mom forever
  4. Loss of an Adult Child

    My friends, we spread Brian's ashes in Maura Lani Bay after dark. It was sad, beautiful, crushing-reality, never-ending stars, and every other emotion you can think of. I just miss my boy. You would think after 9 years that I would not still fall apart, but fall apart I did. Life is a different kind of good now. One I am still learning to accept. Colleen, Brians Mom forever

    Jaesmom17, My heart cries as I read your story about your beautiful baby girl. There are no words I can say to make this all better. Just know you are not alone. We have walked this path before you and can help you navigate. please be kind to yourself. Your mind, body, and soul have and will be going through a very difficult time. My son, Brian died of a completely preventable car crash...that was 9 years ago. I have found people who understand my sorrow and celebrate our small accomplishments. Colleen, Brian's Mom forever
  6. Loss of an Adult Child

    My dear friends, Margo, relationships can be strained normally, but add the death to f a child and everything is multiplied. Be kind to yourself and your spouse. Do and say kind things and take it from their. Marriages are worth saving. Tommy's mom, your words continues to be spot-on. You do have a way with communication. Tomorrow, Scott, my husband and I leave for Hawaii. Five nights on the big island. We are taking some of Brian's ashes and putting them in the Pacific Ocean. My boy will be everywhere. Colleen, Brians Mom forever

  8. Loss of an Adult Child

    My friends, I am sad, angry, and in-shock over the senseless loss of life in Las Vegas. The family members unable to locate loved ones. After Brians crash, there was about an hour where we did not know if Brian was dead or live. And when we were told "he did not make it" , our lives changed forever. I pray for the families. Colleen, Brian's Mom forever

    Luann living in Wisconsin, we know winter. Scott and I started walking in the malls. It is easy walking and we window-shop along the way. It does take self control to not spend money. love Colleen, Brians Mom forever
