Barbara Shares How She Grieves For Her Daughter (VIDEO)

Rate This

Barbara explains how she grieves the loss of her daughter to asthma.

We go to the Angel of Hope, and the Angel of Hope is a statue. It comes from a book called “The Christmas Box,” and it’s a short story. It is for parents who have lost children, but the Angel of Hope is at a cemetery over on, by Scottsdale and Bell, and they have, you can have a plaque there in memory of your child.

In our instance we have that there because we had Jenny cremated rather than put her in another box, and we’ll go there and just sit. And, you know, you can bring white flowers or whatever; you can bring a note. They have a vigil, I think it’s the second Sunday, twilight vigil every year, the second Sunday, and just talking to other people, doing this.

I support the American Lung Association. We have a team for the walk. I try to let parents know who have children with asthma. Talking about it helps.

Hi Barbara, First off I want to say how sorry I am about the loss of your daughter. It's the worst thing you can ever imagine as we also found out in 2007 when we lost our son but not to asthma. I wish you would have found my asthmastory website and were able to prevent this tragic loss. There are too many people suffering from asthma. In 1995 I went into full cardiac and respiratory arrest from an asthma attack. Sorry for the rambling comment but I just felt bad after watching your video and had to post ... even if it's rambling.
