For a parent whose child has died, I don’t think this ever stops. Even these sixteen years later, people would be surprised how difficult it is and how much effort it takes some days to get up in the morning and keep on trying. I do find myself trying my hardest every day. It can be exhausting, but we do it for those we love and in honor and memory of our beloved child.

About Rebecca Carney - One Woman's Perspective

My name is Becky Carney. My husband, Joe, and I have been married for 45 years. We have two living children, Eric (42) and Jenna (37). 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’s interesting to read the many versions of the word relentless. I had a whole post about “one word for grief” – the word “forever” was frequently mentioned. It certainly feels like it will never end while suffering. Thankfully, I am not suffering the way I did anymore and I like to offer hope. I know it sure doesn’t seem possible though. But it is.
