My daughter


Recommended Posts

  • Members

My daughter Ashley 18, died in 2004 in a single car crash. She left behind her sister and best friend, Crystal who was 21 at the time. Crystal ran from her grief, married, started a family and now, almost 5yrs later, is really having a hard time. I wonder if anyone here can help me help her. She is reaching out to me, but I don't know what it is like to be in her shoes, only my own. Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thank you, Dottie

Hey Dottie, I remember talking with you several years ago. My girl Erica died 6 years ago on the 14th of this month.

I am so sorry to hear that your Daughter's friend is struggling. I do believe that the only way to deal with grief is to travel through it. Time and again we hear of folks jumping into some other new thing to take the sting and switch the gears on the sadness, but it inevitably returns. I hope that she will seek some help from a professional. I also hope that she can post here under loss of a friend. There are so many ways she could learn adn get assistance, but all of them will require she be ready to face the ache and pain of the loss.

How are you Dottie? How has it been over the last several years? Have you found ways to carry on and live well?

I think that it is very kind of you to try and help this young lady, I wish her the best adn sending a prayer on the wind.

Dear Members,

We are excited to mention that we are moving to a more new and improved message boards on MONDAY MORNING AUGUST 9th! The boards will be done for a few hours while we are making the conversation. Remember we posted information about this move a month ago. For some of you this might seem a bit sudden,  but when we were reviewing the site we determined the current message board you are using is out of date and the company that designed it is no longer in existence. The good news is this new message board will have new features that have been requested in the past like more fields we can add to your profiles and a chat room up to 20 people at one time. If we find the chat room is bursting at the seams we will add additional room for extra people. All your old posts, private messages and such will be migrated to the new message board. You might have to put up your profile picture again but not sure. The new company will be doing the migration for us. Here is a short list of some of the new features on the board:

- Custom Profile Fields- Users can customize their profile pages by selecting a background color or background image, with tiling options.- Facebook and Twitter Integration- users can respond to multiple posts at once with "mini-quote"- Pinned discussion threads - like welcome to our board etc.- Announcements made across some boards or the entire message board- Search: Users can easily find all content generated by a particular member, by clicking the 'Find Content' button that appears on the main profile page, or in the Mini Profile Popup which can be accessed throughout the board. The results page allows content to be filtered by application, as well whether the member created it or merely participated in it. - Privacy: allows users to sign in anonymously, hiding them from the online users list. Users also have the option to disable personal conversations and user-to-user emails, as well as ignore other users if necessary.

The next exciting piece of news about the new message board is it will have a new domain name of www.grieving.com for search engine optimization purposes. It will still be apart of Beyond Indigo and can be found through www.beyondindigo.com. We will be redirecting your current URL's to this new domain name but we might miss a few. If that is the case simply go back to www.grieving.com or www.beyondindigo.com to find your message board thread. We will try to make the transition as seamless as possible. 

The bottom line is the new board will give us room to grow our community and more options to interact better with each other. 

If you have any questions please direct them to feedback@beyondindigo.com.
