More Information
My Sister is dead. My mother’s 19 year old DAUGHTER is DEAD. I have sought support from the church. Rallied light in written form by google mapping houses all up & down the city my mom lives. I spent $100 so I could print and send 100 letters, and that was just to begin. Calling upon the community to send my mom a LETTER, spreading their story of hope, of rising, of love, of support... anything.

Now my mom is dying in her living because she is not seen, and she is not carried in her grief. She will not reach out because she is withering in her pain. I have to be the one to hold her because it’s our responsibility to carry each other when we’re falling.

I have had ZERO responses from the church. 0 from her neighboring “community.” Well, I’m not done looking. Community can be found wherever somebody raises their hand.

It takes a village to raise a child, and it takes one to raise a mother when her child is gone.

Then I found TR. I asked Glennon's team to rally light, from her tribe ... because she has one and we don’t, (yet.) I’m trying. In my grief, I am trying. I lost part of my Soul losing my sister. I will not let my mom die in her life on my watch.

Please raise your hand for her. You can email me and I'll reply with details.

    Jessi, my family is right where you are. Unimaginably we have lost 10 beloved family members in the last 14 months but the most tragic of all, we’re my 19 year old niece and 10-month old baby cousin, we lost them both to distracted driving car accidents.
    We are watching my sister-in-law and cousin both battle through the loss of their only children. It all feel so unreal and we all feel helpless at times. One thing that has helped our healing is our gigantic family. Because of there strength, I would like to help hold space and stand up with you while you’re supporting your mom ❤️

    Jessi-My only sibling died last August and it has been horrible for me, but even worse to see how it has affected my parents and especially my mom. I would be glad to send your mom a letter or card to tell her . I don't know what it is like to lose a child, but I know what it is like to lose someone you love very much and how lonely and isolating grief can be.

  • Toni Becker
    Jessi,

    I have watched my mom die from her grief for the last 10.5 years after losing my brother. It's a very painful process to watch and wreaks havoc on our tender hearts watching those we love suffer. I would love to send her a note of encouragement and some light in this darkness. I'm happy to sit with her and talk about her grief, as I did with you after Jami passed. I can offer healing art through writing, creative expression, or just talking... Whatever she needs. My heart goes out to both of you. Please let me know how I can help. Here's my email whimsicaljewels@rocketmail.com

    Sending love and light, Toni

    Jessi,
    So grateful that you reached out in your time of grief & loss! I hope you will be able to forgive those around you for their lack of response. Unfortunately our culture is uncomfortable with dealing with grief and loss. It is like the " horse on the dining room table"....everyone sees it but they are too uncomfortable to mention it. I know this because I lost my son in a terrible accident years ago. I felt totally isolated and grief stricken for months but luckily I received some tender mercies along the way. I learned that I could become bitter or better. I chose better. I learned that if my son's song was too be heard then I would have to be the one doing the singing. There are so many tears to be cried, it's best to cry them out as they come, rather than repress the anguish. Now, many years later I realize that I have found peace in my journey. I have sought and received answers from above and an unshakable knowledge that my son is still close to me and that we will be reunited. Continue to walk the path of grief, there is peace and a depth of character and empathy derived no other way as a result of this journey. Tragedy is a part of this mortal life on earth but it is in no wise the end....
    Sending a multitude of love and prayers in behalf of both you and your precious Mom.
    (((Hugs))) Sincerely your friend,
    Mary Lou

    I am here to witness your grief and I’m praying for you extra. This world is messy and your sweet girl has gone to be with the Lord, but please know that you are loved and we need you right here with us. We don’t need any grand gestures, we need a smile and your loving and thoughtful light. Just do the very next right thing no matter how small. Brush your teeth, eat some cereal, call a friend. The darkness will tell you to stay, but the light is warm and it beckons. All my love, Amanda in Falls Church, VA

    Jessi- Thank you for your courage, the world, especially your mom is supported through your strength. Your refusal to give up is a manifestation of the love you will always carry for your sister- she is always with you keeping you strong, steering you to Together Rising. It is your warrior spirit that has led you and your mother to others who will help lift you and your mom and carry you in the embrace of love and understanding you so richly deserve. I am a mother and a friend and would love to send a letter to both you and your mom. Please let me know where I can send them.

  • Marisa
    I lost my sister 5 years ago. There was a time that i thought both of my parents would die from their pain. It is devastating to see your parent in so much pain and not be able to fix it, and to be in the midst of your own grief as well. I want to tell you, they are making it. They are living again. I am too. You and your mom will rebuild yourselves. That pain will turn you inside out but there will be life again. I am holding you both in my heart and my prayers.

  • Laura
    Sweet Kristy. I will not pretend to understand your pain. But my soul can ever so slightly, imagine your loss. I will not give you advice or lessons , in a false and fake attempt to know how to work through this pain. What I will do, is to ask you a simple question. What would she want you to do? What would she want you to do with the tender yet enormously present life she portrayed if only for a short time? Would she want you to suffer inconsolably? Would she want you to stop, once her time here on earth was no longer visible? Or would she want you to trust, know, believe that she’s still as present in you, your daughter and in the universe, as she ever was? She said as always in your heart. She remains in your heart. No one can take that away. No one could ever touch that bond, that knowing, that force that you had with her. No one ever will. Keep it, hold it, protect it. Know that it always was there and it will always be there. I think you know, that she wants you to take that love, that bond, and continue to share that love with the world. With your daughter. With yourself. She loves you always, you know that. You love her always, she knows that. Honour her wishes. She will be proud of you. Xo

    You are never alone! There are hundreds of thousands of moms out here who know your pain. I have not been where you are so I can only imagine the thoughts swirling in your head, how alone and ignored you feel. People don’t know what to say so they don’t say anything. I say “I know”, but what I really mean is “I hear you”.

I am sending angels and spirits to surround you with love. I know the idea of living even one moment without your sweet daughter feels like it’s too much to bare. Be gentle with yourself. Take care of yourself but please make one little move towards the light of life. Something small but everyday. I wish you peace. I’m happy to write a letter. Please tell me how I can help.

    I don’t know how you do it, but you are breathing. You are getting up each day, if only barely. You are living for your daughters. Both of them. They need and want to see you live. To live even with the most unbearable pain. To somehow bear it. Keep living and feeling the aching, blazing love for your two daughters through the pain, and somehow the love will sustain you. I love you, dear mother of two girls. I have two girls and I cannot, truly cannot, begin to imagine your pain and grief without buckling over in sobbing. I’m reaching out in love and strength and motherhood. I’ll be praying and holding you and your daughters in my heart. Please lean on others to help you carry on; as impossible as it may seem. The strength and love that brought your daughters into the world is what can keep you in the world, even though one is gone from it. Though never truly gone, though, is she. She is with you now, breathing her love back into you and her sister. Keep breathing her in and out and in again.

    Hello Love, I am so sorry for your pain. I too lost my little girl when she was 5 1/2 years old. I don’t know how to email you or your Mom...can you post where to send a note to your Mom? I am so impressed by your courage and call to action in the face of your grief. Continue to draw strength from the place that propels you to choose love and compassion. I can be reached at karenzipp@gmail.com. Bless you dear Love.

You are most definitely surrounded by a tribe of people who are here for you so you don’t have to experience your grief alone. Lots of love to you and your dear mama.

    Hi Jessi
    My tears are flowing..... your precious heart is carrying a big load. The loss of a young sister who you loved and identified with more closely than you realized till now in her absence.
    As well as the tender but heavy burden for your grieving mother.
    She may not seem to be recovering well.... she is in the deepest despair at this time. However, your presence and concerns are reaching into her heart. Your Mom is experiencing a normal response to this great loss.
    If I could I would hold your Mom in my arms and rock and rock her gently as if she were my own daughter. And maybe for just a moment she could rest from the torment of necessary grieving.
    You are and will always be her deepest comfort even if it doesn't seem so right now.
    We also lost our vibrant handsome young son a few years ago. No.... you never completely get passed the heartbreak. But you do move ahead. And the love of your remaining children is a great life line.
    I don’t know you but somehow feel quite close to you and your dear mama at this time .
    My earnest and compassion filled prayers are with you. Love Michelle O’Brien
  • Meredith
    Oh Jessi, I too am a mama, and am so touched by your kind words and your strength during this impossibly difficult time. To be looking out for your mother while both of you are dealing with this is such an act of love. I have no magic words to make this better but please know there is a whole world of support available for your mama (and you too) simply because you asked. You asked and when you didn’t find what you were looking for, you asked again. And again. Now, you’ve found a place that can offer you kindness, warmth and support. I hope just knowing there are people who are holding you in there thoughts will help to ease the burden, even just a little. Right now you can focus on getting through the day, or if that’s too much, the next hour or even the next few minutes if you feel as if it’s too much to ask. Hug each other and be patient. Sit with each other if talking is too much. Know that there are people, even strangers, who will hold you in their hearts as you move through each day.
    With warmest regards and heartfelt hugs,
    Meredith

    Jessi,
    The strength you are showing right now, while you’re grieving, is an inspiration. Your mom needs you, and she’ll get more support than ever imaginable from this amazing community of sisters. Take care of yourself too- whatever that looks like to you, and have faith that love from the universe will help you both through.
  • Lindsay
    Dear Jessi,
    Please know that your Mom is being thought of and held up by all of us in the amazing community Glennon created through Together Rising. It is in fact To Get Her Rising, after all. Thank you so much for reaching out even in this hardest season of your life, to make us all aware of the help your dear mother so desperately needs. May her pain ease in time and the light return to her eyes soon.
  • Julie Ann
    Life is unbearably hard sometimes. Jessi, I'm so sorry for the loss of Jami--no parent or sibling should have to endure that kind of loss. But you and your Mom are in the thick of it, and your resilience is astounding. Peace be to Jami's sweet spirit, and to all of you who love her and miss her each day.
  • Robin
    I am so incredibly sorry. I have no words, but I send love to you!
  • Jessica
    Jessi you came to the right place. We are a community only in one sense, but here’s to hoping that your strength and these notes will give you and your mother the courage to just wake up each day. That will give way to new strength and ultimately the ability to build a new life and a new reality. From one mother and sister to another, there is nothing that can replace a child or a sister. But the world still needs you and there will be a lightening of this load.
  • Alicia Thomas
    It never makes sense. People struggle to know what to say, the whole business is so complicated and messy. Words of comfort can be so hard to come by, but not out of lack of wanting. Know, even though none of us may know you personally, we feel your struggle, we hear you. We love you.

    Dear Kristy,
    I am so very sorry to hear that you lost your sweet girl, Jami. I am a new mama to 2 girls. Eleanor is 2.5 and Charlotte is 2 months old and my mama heart absolutely breaks to think of losing one of them. I know that there is nothing that can be said or done to take away your pain. It may feel like you are alone in your pain, but please know that we see you and grieve with you. I am sending you love and strength and big mama hugs.

    I lost my sister 26 years ago—killed by a drunk driver (at the time, she had just turned 21, I was 17). I have been where you are now and have watched my family fall apart and then put itself back together again— forever changed, still broken, but stronger and wiser and more grateful than before.

    I would love to send a note of encouragement to your mom—to let her know that she has the support and love of strangers—and to help her understand that love always wins.

    Your mama is so fortunate to have you looking after her, Jessi. Thank you.

    Dear Jessi,

    I am so very sorry about the loss of your sister. I can only imagine how difficult it has been and on top of your loss to witness the pain your mother is bearing as well. You are a kind, sweet soul to care so deeply and work so hard to help your mom. I would love to do whatever small part I can do to help raise her spirit or offer some support and love.

    My email is eva.vlachos@gmail.com

    Sending you love and light and keeping you both in my prayers.

    Please forward this

    Kristy, I am so very sad for the loss of your precious baby, Jami. I also had to say goodbye to a teenage child. The pain is searing and feels like it will rip and tear until you think you are disappearing.
    There are no words to make it less painful, but Kristy, there is a world of caring women holding you close in their hearts, praying. Once in awhile try to lean into that compassion and allow them to (virtually) lift you from the mire. It may only last for a moment or two at first but those moments will grow longer. Wrap you arms around yourself and imagine hundreds of gentle hugs.

    I am doing a service event with mom and daughters that would love to write your mom. Can you give me a little more details like her first name and and address we could send them too? Is she able to receive other things like small treats or trinkets that might brighten her day?

    We are getting together June 28th and would love to put something together to send her. Let me know if this would be helpful to her.

    Thanks,
