The loss of someone you love can never be repaired. Time you spent with them is gone and cannot be shared again. Time is precious.

Did you lose a loved one from a condition that was not recognized or treated in a correct or timely manner? Or was it an unnecessary or premature death caused by the neglect, negligence, abuse, abandonment or incompetence of another? Did someone take that precious time away from someone you love? Life is life at any age. 

This Forum is a support for the survivors. To offer sharing and comfort, advice and understanding to the stunned loved ones of persons who died but should have lived.

It’s about broken trust.

You can share your memories of a loved one lost here. If you wish to share something, please send text and/or photos here: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Obituary: Gazette Telegraph, Colorado Springs CO

The daughter of Oden B. and Arline A. (Darnell) Grider, Rose Mary came into this world on July 26, in Mattoon, IL. Rose called Colorado Springs, CO, home for much of her life. It was there that she worked as a Doctor's Assistant with Allergy Associates and was a member of the First Presbyterian Church and a volunteer with Silver Key. 

Rose's memory will be cherished by her son, John; and her daughter, Mary.

Rose Mary 2012Rose Mary:
We think about you always,
We talk about you still,
You have never been forgotten,
And you never will.

Strokes are the #4 cause of death and the
#1 cause of disability in the United States

Today you may be happy, enjoying life, feeling good and having a great day. But, imagine tomorrow waking up and not be able to swallow or talk. No warning. You cannot ask for help. You cannot tell anyone that something is wrong. Your cries for help will not be heard. No one can hear you. You may even have medical personnel around you who do nothing or who actually incorrectly diagnose you and make you worse. You cannot tell them what is wrong. Precious time starts slipping by.
