for your Child


Liliya Panayev  




You can shed tears that she is gone
Or you can smile because she has lived

You can close your eyes and pray

that she will come back
Or you can open your eyes and see

all that she has left

Your heart can be empty because

you can’t see her
Or you can be full of the love that you shared

You can turn your back on tomorrow

and live yesterday
Or you can be happy for tomorrow

because of yesterday

You can remember her

and only that she is gone
Or you can cherish her memory

and let it live on

You can cry and close your mind,

be empty and turn your back
Or you can do what she would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

Always Loved

Never Forgotten

Forever Missed


Mom, Rob & Jay 







We are the parents whose children have died. We are the siblings whose brothers and sisters no longer walk with us through life. We are the grandparents who have buried grandchildren.


We come together as Bereaved Parents of the USA to provide a safe space where grieving families can connect, share our stories, and learn to rebuild our lives.


We attend meetings whenever we can and for as long as we find helpful. We share our fears, confusion, anger, guilt, frustrations, emptiness, and feelings of hopelessness, knowing these emotions will be met with compassion and understanding. As we support, comfort and encourage one another, we offer hope and healing. As we confront the deaths of our loved ones, our shared grief brings us to a common ground that transcends differences, building mutual understanding across the boundaries of culture, race, faith, values, abilities, and lifestyle.


Together we celebrate the lives of our children, siblings, and grandchildren, sharing the joys and the heartbreaks as well as the love that will never fade. Together, strengthened by the bonds we create, we offer what we have learned from one another to every bereaved family, no matter how recent or long ago the death.


We are the Bereaved Parents of the USA.
We Welcome You.
