Broken Heart


How much can a heart break…and still continue to beat?

About Rebecca Carney - One Woman's Perspective

My name is Becky Carney. My husband, Joe, and I have been married for 43 years. We have two living children, Eric (40) and Jenna (35). We lost a baby in utero at 19 weeks in 1987. In 2002, our middle son, Jason (19), and his best friend, Alina (20), were broadsided by a drunk driver who was going at least twice the speed limit. They both died instantly. This blog is written from my perspective as a bereaved parent. I don't claim to know what it's like to walk in anyone else's shoes. Each situation is different; each person is different. Everyone handles grief differently. But if I can create any degree of understanding of what it's like to be a parent who has lost a child, then I have succeeded in my reason for writing this blog.

  1. It does because it doesn’t have another choice. The picture is beautiful. When I find something like that I think Jeff placed it there to remind me that I will see him again and his love lives on. Hugs

  2. I asked a similar question once. It was: “How can my heart ever heal, when it continues to bleed?”
    My question was answered one day when the bleeding actually stopped. It took a long time. And every day was difficult and sad.
    Sending you a big hug, Becky.

  3. It takes many years, in my case 13, before you can feel “normal” again. Then Danielle’s birthday is coming up and Christmas is on the horizon…more tears now just thinking about it. Huge hug Becky. I look forward to your posts xx
