Welcome to the
BRINGER OF LIGHT NEWSLETTER

Thanks so much for your request to receive the monthly
BRINGER OF LIGHT NEWSLETTER.

A MOMENT IN TIME

When I gaze into that same old mirror every morning, I see the havoc that this grief and these years have wreaked upon me. I'm old and getting older...... something that so many never had the opportunity to say, just as my son Luke never had. Luke died at the age of 21 from acute bronchopneumonia in 2001.

I know that I should be happy to be alive, to still have one child left with me on this earth. God knows that I have tried, and tried, and tried. When one child is in heaven and one child is on earth, happiness is something that is very hard to come by. But every morning when I get up, and I look into that same old mirror of truth, I say to my weary reflection...."Today I will try again, today I will find some happiness," and I do. I have moments of happiness throughout the day, and I try to think of only the good times that I had with my son Luke, and the good times that I am still having with my daughter Emily.

I love my daughter as much as I love my son. She is here and alive, so I try to be happy for her, and happy for me that she is still in my life. No matter how hard I try, and no matter how much I smile, and no matter how many times I laugh, my mind always drifts to the reality that my son is dead and then it returns... the pain of missing him. But it is within that moment that is in-between those thoughts of despair that I do find some happiness. It is all that I have, so it will have to be enough.... it will have to do for now.

At least now I do have those special moments of happiness, something that I did not have in my early years of grief. I'm not sure if it is my pain that is better or the fact that I have learned how to live with this pain. I have found that it takes many years to master this. I also believe that I have reached another milestone. Not only have I learned to live with this pain, but I have learned how to let some happiness shine in through those windows of grief.

Someday, when I cross to the other side, and when I reach for Luke's outstretched hand, I then will have that moment of happiness, but this time it will be..... an everlasting moment in time.

THE MYSTERY OF TIME

My body's old and wearing out
All my hair is turning gray
My eyes don't see the way they did
But somehow I'm okay.

His body was so young and strong
His hair was full and brown
His eyes were sharp and beautiful
But now he can't be found.

I wonder how I'm breathing still
While his breath disappeared
I'm standing here alive and well
But he's been gone for years.

Sometimes I think it's so unfair
That I'm still in this shell.
I'd like to trade my life for his
And escape this living hell.

But life just doesn't work that way
As proved through history,
Time will tick until death comes
To solve this mystery.

TIME AFTER TIME

Lying in my bed I hear the clock tick,
And think of you
Turning in circles confusion
Is nothing new
Flashback to warm nights
Almost left behind
Suitcase of memories,
Time after...

Sometimes you picture me
I'm walking too far ahead
You're calling to me, I can't hear
What you have said
And you say go slow
I've fallen behind
The second hand unwinds

If you're lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you I'll be waiting
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you I will be waiting
Time after time
Time after time

After your picture fades and darkness has
Turned to grey
Watching through windows I'm wondering
If you're ok
And you say go slow
I've fallen behind
The drum beats out of time

If you're lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you I'll be waiting
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you I will be waiting
Time after time
Time after time

Mmm...time after time
Oooh...time after time
Time after time

You may not think the world needed you, but it did. For you were unique: like no one that has ever been before or will come after. No one can speak with your voice; say your piece; smile your smile; or shine your light. No one can take your place for it was yours alone to fill. Because you are not here to shine your light, who knows how many travelers will lose their way as they try to pass by your empty place in the darkness.

SUBMITTED BY
Christine (Mom)

Dear Shannon,

Not a single day goes by that I don't think of you. I want to thank you for all the wonderful memories you gave me. They help me get through the rough days. What I wouldn't give to spend just one more day with you.

Time goes on and I have Come to realize life goes on as well. There is always this emptiness, especially when we have family gatherings but I know you are always with us. To think of you brings a warm smile to my face. I love when we talk about the childhood days of you growing up.

William and I have great conservations about things you liked to do. I want to make sure he doesn't forget you. God, he is so much like you! He clomps around the house in your big black boots And Dad takes him for drives in your truck. We have started to put together a book of memories, pictures, letters from friends which we will give to him when he is older. Your memory will live on through us.

I will always look for those signs you send and cherish when you come to me in dreams. You always seem to know when I need it the most. I love you Shannon and miss you with all my heart!

Love, Mom

LIFE STORIES


IN MEMORY OF
Christopher Michael Hodge
16
March 9, 1977 - March 3, 1994

March 9th, Nineteen-Seventy-Seven
the Lord sent me a gift from Heaven.
Christopher Michael Hodge
was his name.
From that moment on,
my life was never the same.
Chris was a happy baby,
always had a smile.
I could not believe,
God blessed me with this child.
The years flew by,
he grew into a strong little boy.
Chris gave me so much,
such happiness and joy.
Before I knew it, Chris was thirteen.
He still had great love,
though things weren't always serene.
Next thing I knew, Chris was in ninth grade.
His boyhood was gone, it had come to fade.
Chris was growing from a boy into a man,
he would be there for you, he would lend you a hand.
My boy was getting older, it was hard to believe.
I was a mother of a child of sixteen.
Chris was growing up much too fast,
but I knew I couldn't stop it,
it had to come to pass.
March 3rd, Nineteen-Ninety-Four,
I talked two hours to the child I adored.
Chris said, "Come on Mom,
let's talk more for awhile"
but instead I kissed him and
walked away with a smile.
Little did I know that would be
the last moment with my son.
My beautiful "Dupe" your time was done.
I asked God that night to take care of my Chris
He heard me that night, He granted my wish,
even though that's not what I meant.
He took you home - You were mine to lent.
Six days later, you turned ten plus seven.
You were with the Lord,
in the Kingdom of Heaven.
Remember me always, you saw me first,
when you opened your eyes
after I gave you birth.
I'll love you forever Mijo, till my time is done
Christopher Michael Hodge, my Beloved Son.

POETRY

JANELLE "NELLY" TURNER

SEPTEMBER 16, 1987/ AUGUST 10 2010
RENAL FAILURE FROM KIDNEY INFECTION
SUBMITTED BY
ALICE M TURNER/ JANELLE'S MOM

I REALIZE I SIT AND THINK OF DAYS GONE BY,
THOSE DAYS THAT NOW DID REALLY FLY.
I KNOW THIS NOW I WON'T PRETEND,
I REALLY DIDN'T UNDERSTAND.

IF I HAD ONLY REALIZED,
OUR TIME TOGETHER WOULD LAST NO TIME.
I WOULD HAVE TAPES, MORE PICTURES TOO,
TOGETHER MANY MORE THINGS TO DO.

I REALIZE NOW HOW MUCH I MISS.
IF GIVEN TIME WHAT I WOULD FIX.
I WOULD TAKE THE TIME TO SIT AND TALK,
PERHAPS WE COULD HAVE TAKEN WALKS.

BUT NOW THAT I HAVE REALIZED,
HOW MUCH HAS CHANGED SINCE YOU DIED.
I REALIZE NOW, I UNDERSTAND
WE CAN'T UNDO THE TIME THAT'S PAST.
THE TIME IS GONE, TIME DOESN'T STOP.

I REALIZE THAT IN THIS FACT,
AS THE TIME KEEPS GOING PAST,
MINUTE BY MINUTE SLIPS AWAY,
BRINGING ME CLOSER TO THAT DAY.

I REALIZE NOW, I UNDERSTAND,
WE'LL BE TOGETHER ONCE AGAIN.

Accidental Gun Shot
SUBMITTED BY

Jason was very good at coming around and talking to me. I could hear him just like hearing yourself talking to you. In fact I used to say to myself... you are way crazy and I'd hear Jason laughing.....no yo're not.. I would ask him what he did and he told me (and Numerous mediums told me the very same thing) that "he volunteered for taking people home." He said he liked to go out on "quick deaths" like his was. I asked him why... he said "You should see their faces." I started to think about that, and at first I thought it was morbid but Then you think about it from the person's point of view and you have to say... COOL!

IN THEIR OWN WORDS

written or said by our children


IN MEMORY OF
Shannon David Burns
33
1/2/1976 to 10/30/2009
head injury
SUBMITTED BY
Christine (Mom)

My son, Shannon wrote this paper when he was in the 6th grade and was selected as the winner from our entire city and was honored at City Hall. We were so very proud of him.

America's Democracy: What is it's Future?

The future of America's democracy depends on us, the children of America. We will have to make important decisions whether to fight or to make peace. We will also have to make a very important decision, which is to save the lives of people by abolishing all nuclear weapons around the world or to destroy life by keeping nuclear weapons.

In the future, we will have to take care of poverty. We will also have to make our country equal for all people because rich people can bribe others to overlook something, but poor people can not.

In the future we will have to clean our water of pollutants and conserve our resources by recycling. If we don't, all life may become extinct and there will be no need for democracy.

Therefore, it is my belief that we, the young people, must take it upon ourselves to make the world a better place for our children. It is also up to us to abolish racism and to finally take charge of our lives and make the world a better place. If we can accomplish all of this, our children will not have to worry about such things as racism, poverty, pollution, war and equality. I believe, the world will be a better place for all mankind, if we all lend a helping hand!

SPECIAL MEMORIES


IN MEMORY OF
Adam Fiock
26
July 1, 1981 October 6, 2007
Self inflicted wound
SUBMITTED BY
Christine Adam's M♡M

My bedroom ceiling had collapsed when I came home from work a week ago Saturday. A not good contractor (I'm doing the mudding, painting myself). This reminded me of a story.....

I picked the wrong person to remodel my bathroom a few years ago. He talked me into ceramic tile, assuring me that he had the saw needed to cut tile. They were supposed to work at night. I had to work an 8 hr. night shift at NICU at St. Mary hospital.

I couldn't sleep during the day due to them cutting ceramic tile right outside my window. When I came home from work in the morning, the grout was not cured, the toilet was in the bathtub, the old vanity was out by the street, and the pedestal sink was still in the box in the living room. No one showed up, and by 1:00 Adam called... I burst into tears.

He came over, went to Home Depot for all the missing parts, and put everything together. I took him out to eat, and gave him the other half of the money. Miss him so much. Always there for me. I truly do not know what I would have done if he had not called then.

Overdose fentanyl
SUBMITTED BY
Debbie Feinberg

An old girlfriend of my son had a dream one night. In the dream my son said to her "make sure you tell my mom I am alright." She woke up startled but had a busy day ahead and soon forgot about the dream. The very next night my son came to her again in her dreams. My son said to her "you told her right? You have to make sure you tell my mom that I am alright." With the second dream occurring she was hesitant to contact me because she thought I may become upset. But she said she had to give me the message as my son instructed her to do. Two days later she had to go and pick up a Mass card for a friend's child that passed away. They told her the earliest available date would be April 21. My son's birthdate. I am so grateful this girl contacted me and gave me this message.

Traumatic brain injury result of vehicular accident
SUBMITTED BY

When Clint was about 2 years old we were in the process of potty training. I had started putting pull-ups on him to help the transition from diapers to underpants. One day he went to the potty by himself and came out of the bathroom pulling up his pull-ups while singing the TV jingle "I'm a big kid now"! It was just too cute and has left my daughter and I with a permanent happy, joyful memory of the cute, happy, and smart little guy Clint was!

OUR CHILDREN'S ACHIEVEMENTS, TALENTS, HONORS, AWARDS, AND UNIQUE CHARACTERISTICS


IN MEMORY OF
Crawford Alan Carnahan
18
August 21, 1988 ~ May 12, 2007
Leoptospirosis
SUBMITTED BY
Alan ~ father to Crawford

Crawford was very honest about himself and about life in general. I guess that he learned some of that from me as I have been a deputy sheriff for almost 40 years, now.

When he was growing up, though; I had caught him in some lies that he had told me or to other people. I always told him to always be honest and to tell the truth. "If you get caught in a lie by someone; then that person may never believe you or trust you, again." I made a "pact" with him that I would accept and deal with anything that he told me no matter how bad it was, just as long as he didn't lie to me.

He changed and was always honest from that day until the day that he died. No matter how bad things were or what the question was that was asked of him; he would tell the truth.

His friends admired him for that. At his funeral; a lot of his friends stood up and told others that attended that he was the person that they went to for advice and for honesty. He would always tell them the truth and was the most honest person that they knew. They considered him their "leader". Sometimes, his truth and honesty hurt a person's feelings, though.

His friends said that they would remark to others; "Don't ask Crawford what he thinks if you can't handle a straight answer."

I miss that honesty as much as I miss Crawford, himself. A remarkable son and a father relationship that allowed us to communicate and talk about anything without offending the other. A "unique" young man with a "unique" first name.

Each person is an individual, though, I thought of him as a "mini me". The only son of an only son (I was my parents only son and Crawford was my only child)...since Crawford didn't have any children...the "Carnahan" name will cease to exist once I die. This saddens me even more.

In memory of my son; Crawford.

IN MEMORY OF

36 years
Nov. 22, 1973 - Aug. 27, 2010
Pulmonary embolism
SUBMITTED BY
Mom (Rhonda)
WRITTEN BY
Richard Ross (Dylan's Cousin)

It's that time of year again... Aug 27 No, not the beginning of football season, although that does coincide. No, not the beginning of fall, or at least, the poor excuse of the break between the scorching hot and downright cold. And no, not the beginning of school as most kids have already been at if for a week or so.

It's that time...the anniversary that we mark. Every year, on the calendar, sure as the sun rises and sets.

I still miss him. And it still hurts. A LOT. He is supposed to be here, cracking us up with with his spot-on impersonations and quotes from movies. He is supposed to be here, to give us the insight on the upcoming football season. He is supposed to be here, getting ready for the not-too-far-off hunting season.

But he's not.

And those quotes from the movies aren't quite as funny as they used to be. And the football games lose a little of the energy, the noise, and the passion. And the hunting season seems to be colder, with not as many ducks as we remember seeing years past. All things lose some of their sparkle, their luster. Because he's supposed to be here.

The real sting, the heart-wrenching pain has subsided for some of us. For some, it still hurts the same. EVERY.DAY. And it's different for everyone. Personally, it was the first in a string of losses and changes that I never wanted that have happened in the following years. To be sure, there have been some wonderful things that have occurred in my life that stand out, that make me happy, so there is some balance. So maybe I've become more adept? Maybe I can compartmentalize it better, each into it's own category? I don't know. What I do know is it still hurts.

How would you define the grief that is felt with the loss of a child?

The grief felt with the loss of a child can not be defined. It leaves a hole in your heart that can NEVER be filled. The years pass, but the pain is always there. A memory, a food, a special day can bring thoughts, a smile and tears of my beautiful little girl... and sometimes, just the way the wind blows will do the same thing! It was my honor and pleasure to have had 10 years with this amazing child. I thank God everyday for the gift of a daughter named Tracy.

Always & forever loving you,
Mommy

Dear Christine - I am sitting here totally in chills and tears as reading what you wrote about Luke showing his presence at your daughter Emily's wedding. The song that you chose here, Save a Place for Me, is one that i just happened to listen to YESTERDAY for the first time ever. I don't even have the words to tell me how much this has touched me. And this is only after reading what you wrote at the very beginning of the newsletter. I hope I have enough in me to continue reading the entire issue. I'm glad that you were able to see and feel Luke's presence at Emily's wedding. I am sure he and his love for all of you, especially his sister on her special day, is the reason you all were able to truly feel blessed.
love and hugs,
maria
