I have been thinking of you quite a bit. I too lost my son, His name was Corey and he died the night of his 18th birthday February 19th ‘07. I raised him myself since he was 1. My only child. I just passed the 5 yr mark.
Firstly, so you know me , I am a 56 yo white woman and was a working RN through my son’s lifetime. He was very involved in musical theater and chorus, had a great deal of friends. On the first Mother’s Day those kids left a huge card in my door that they all signed and it meant the world to me . So I hope you feel the love coming to you from people who are sending thoughts and love to you.
Please take some time off now and stay in a quiet and calm environment w just those who are close to you. Mourning is a long and tough process that takes lots of time. Music and exercise helps, so does screaming in a pillow.
Let others represent you in public as much as possible. Find a therapist you feel good with. (I found this very difficult) Parents who have also lost children are the best to talk with.
I wish you strength and love through this most difficult of all times.
Although I have never been a mother, I still share in your pain. My heart and my sincerest condolences go out to you and to your family and friends. Please know that so many people are praying for you and are there for you. And I am only one of them. If you do believe in God and in HIS WORD, rest assured that Zimmerman will not get away with this. GALATIANS 6:7 tells us that… “For God is not mocked… whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.” And in this case… this is Zimmerman. I will keep praying for all of you and just know that God has tired of all this injustice, especially when it comes to the outright murder of a young man. I leave you with this blessing for your family and friends, from the Old Testament, The Book of Numbers, Chapter 6, Verses 24 through 27….May the LORD bless thee and keep thee, may the LORD make HIS face to shine upon thee and be gracious unto thee, The LORD lift up HIS countenance upon and give you PEACE! I pray this prayer and blessing in the name of JESUS. Be encouraged Ms. Fulton, God sits high and looks low and HE is still on the throne. It may take a while, but justice, God’s justice, will have it’s way in this.
I pray every day that God continues to give you and your family the courage and strength needed to stay the course on your quest for justice for Trayvon. You must know that you have inspired and touched the hearts of so many mothers of all races who could have easily been in your shoes. I know there is no explanation for the senseless act of violence that stole the life of your beautiful young son but know that God will never give you more than you can bare — and you have shown your strength and a mother’s love to the world.
I wish you a peaceful and blessed Mother’s Day. I cannot imagine how you will feel without Trayvon beside you in the flesh, but I know he will be with you in spirit. Continue showing America and the world what Mother-love looks like.
Your family is always in my thoughts and prayers. You experienced what no mother living in 21st century America should — the thoughtless and tragic loss of her child. Sometimes our country saddens me and sometimes it surprises me, like when millions of us used our voices to let the world know how we feel about your son, Trayvon. And, like the wonderful woman you are, you continued on your journey as a mother, seeking answers for your son’s untimely demise. Your strength, courage, emotion, and dedication exemplify what it means to be a mother.
Hi My name is Stephanie, I too share the same grief that you will be having on Mother’s day this year I have for the last 7 years. My heart goes out to you for I know personally the pain that you feel and will have though out the rest of your life. I can tell you this it does get a little easier to deal with, the only way that I have made this far is God’s grace holding on to God’s promise, knowing and believing that I will these days see my son again is what keeps me going. My prayer for you is that you find comfort and peace in Christ. I am here for you if you need to talk about.
I’m joining in on this because as a Mom, I feel we should join hands with you at this time. Happy Mother’s Day to YOU. WE will never forget Trayvon either. And we shouldn’t. You will get through this. We are here to support you. On Mother’s Day just think of an invisible wreath of ‘arms’ around you. That’s US. Take care.
Thinking of you on Mother's Day here in Northern New York State
My heart and prayers are with you as you face this difficult day. You have given many of us courage and strength as your family begins to deal with the cruel loss of Trayvon. As you mourn privately, for as long as it takes for you to absorb this hideous loss, may you find a way to turn your grief and suffering into an ongoing quest for justice and basic civil rights for all.
I am so very sorry for the loss of your son, Trayvon. The depth of your pain must be unbearable and I pray for you and all of your family in this difficult time. I just wanted you to know that you are loved and thought of always. Your son will always be a part of you,
I hope Trayvon’s mother finds justice truly is served - even if it is some time in coming. It is hard to imagine that a mother could have peace of mind when her child walks to a store and does not return and no one was trying to put together the full story of what happened.
May Ms Fulton find peace of mind, knowing she has done the right thing in pursuit of justice and finding out what went wrong. And may she find that Trayvon lives in her heart because of the many little things he did in his short life; those memories are his legacy to those who knew and loved him.
May the good Lord help carry the burden of this very special mother.
Trayvon is still with you every day. You can sense his presence at special times:
He uses GOD’s sun to send you that warm embrace.
When the wind blows he sends a gentle breeze to dry your tears.
When it rains he uses the drops to wash away your pain.
But most of all its during the still quiet of night that he comforts you until sleep comes and he gives you a kiss on the cheek and says “Goodnight mommy, Happy Mother’s Day GOD is here with me and I’m alright now.
Happy Mother’s Day Sybrina and may GOD continue to Bless you and your family.
I don’t know you and will probably never meet you but I am sending you strength and love this mother’s day. My heart has ached for you these last months since Trayvon’s death. I can only imagine the pain you have felt at his passing, but also know that a mother’s love is deep and your connection to him can never be taken from your heart…
God bless you and keep you strong through these trials. Regardless of what happens, don’t let anything trump your spirit. Remain in God’s embrace, keep him near you at all times and he will never let you falter.
As a mother of two sons, the tragedy that took your son from your arms is something I could never forget. I pray that justice will prevail, and that some small measure of peace may be yours. May your Mother’s Day be filled with the happy memory of time spent with your son, and not the tragic way he was taken from you.
Thank you for being the kind of mother that represents such grace under a mountain worth of pressure. As the world continues to look at you to see what your next moves are know that we SUPPORT you and your family. ALWAYS
My heart hurts for your loss. Not only did you loose Trayvon, you have become THE representative for all Mothers (especially of color) whose child has been snatched from this world [only] because of: outer appearance. I pray that GOD gives you the strenght to continue to stand tall and brave. We collectively stand behind you.
I have been praying for you and your family and I wanted to wish you comfort this Mother’s Day. I know our Heavenly Father is with you. You are representing Christ well through all of this. I salute you sister and pray that His love and encouragement will abound in your life this year. May He give you beauty for ashes and the oil of gladness (Isaiah 61:2-3)
May you feel the comfort of God as you and your family experience this Mother’s Day without the physical presence of your son Trayvon. You are an example to all of us as you fight for and understanding and justice. Trayon will always live because he live will always live in your heart.
May God be with you and keep you during this trying time in your life. May he also give you strength to move whatever mountain stands in the way of you finding answers, and peace along your journey. Your son may not be with you, but the love you have for him and that he had for you will forever be a part of you.
You are in my prayers. Happy Mother’s Day, and God bless you.
On October 13, 2011 at 29 weeks pregnant I lost my little girl Kelinda, my first and only child. Along with her went all the dreams I had for her future and mine. I find it hard to live my life on most days. However, I have watched you fight for your son through tears and what I know to be a pain like no other. I pray that you are able to find peace if only for a minute on this Mother’s Day. Please know that you have mothers worldwide standing with you, praying for you and wishing you nothing but the best. You show us all how to handle adversity with faith and grace.
