Adam Benjamin Clark May 19, 1977 – September 27, 1983

I once believed the worst thing a parent can experience is the death of a child.

I was wrong.

Worse is:

          *being accused of murdering that child.

          *having your surviving child ripped out of your arms and life.

          *watching that child grieve and suffer and being powerless to help.



Please leave your e-mail address and share you story.

Did you bury a child?

Was your child murdered?

Do you feel no one understands?

You are not alone.

I want to hear from you.

    My prayers are with you, Martha. There is nothing worse than the death of a child by violence. The grief, shock, and sorrow never ends. There is no ‘resolution.’ There is only time and with time, hopefully, comes distance. I hope you find some peace. It helps when the guilty party is found guilty, but not much. You, the grieving parent, receive a longer than life sentence. There will be no end to it. Every anniversary, every birthday, every holiday, every passing moment will be a reminder of what and who you no longer have in your life. Have you looked up an organization called Parents of Murdered Children (POMC)? Please do. I attend on a regular basis and now facilitate a small group. Meeting with other parents of murdered children helps me to know I am not alone. And you, Martha, are not alone.
