    Loss of a family member

    Sunday night I received a phone call no one wants to get. My 24 year old daughter passed away after suffering cardiac arrest. Words can't say how hard this has been on the family. Emotionally I just can't talk to anyone about it and I know I need to grieve and heal so I come to my second family here online to share my sorrow to help the grieving process. Typing about it is hard, no where near as hard as talking about it.

    Late last night it started to sink in with my youngest two boys making the pain even greater to deal with. We cry, we talk, we cry some more. We try to do some of our normal activities as it helps clear the mind, at least for a few minutes.

    Many members here have my phone number, I ask that you please not try to call at this time. I appreciate your support, I'm just emotionally not ready to talk with anyone outside of immediate family.

Modern rifles are a means for the citizens to stand up to an over powering government.

    No one knows how you feel right now. I only know how I felt when my father died. I with others offer sympathy and heartfelt good wishes for you and your family. The expression of grief is therapeutic in and of itself and I encourage you to continue.

    Meanwhile, just know that many of us identify with you and your present conditions, and that we wish you love and peace.

    I can't imagine what you are going through. Whatever we can do, just say the word. I'm so sorry!
