Click hereBIG NEWS! I moved the book ordering information to a page of its own (to shorten this page a bit) and so I would really appreciate it if you would go check it out. I have a counter on that page and I will know...

CLICK HEREMy name is Julane Grant and I am Darren's mom. My wonderful son died 14 years ago, at 22, and is still missed so much, by so many. Now, he is our special angel. I have written WHEN YOUR FRIEND'S CHILD DIES: A Guide to Being a Thoughtful and Caring Friend. This unique book will explain to our friends and family what to say and WHAT NOT TO SAY to ease our way down this path we would never have chosen. It tells how we want and NEED our child to be remembered, how their name is music, how the memories make us smile, if even through the tears. Click here CLICK TO SEE HOW TO GET YOUR COPY.
Put it on your coffee table or pass it around for your friends and family to read or get them all a copy! It will make a difference when they know how you really feel and actual ways to help.


IMPORTANT REQUEST: Would you help me please? This sight has grown so much and I have just been overwhelmed! I want to continue adding all of the photos of our angels, gardens and rituals, etc. but I keep running out of time. There is a message board on this site and so many have written their stories. These bereaved parents and sometimes grandparents, all have their own unique story and many have special circumstances that I can't directly relate to, other than we all live with a broken heart. Sometimes I look though my list and try to find someone who has experienced much the same loss. It takes time. What I am looking for is lots of people to reply, either on the message board or by email to the writers.

I have become friends with so many of you but I feel like I am failing you because I never have time for correspondence anymore. Perhaps if you could help me with the messages if you have the time, then I could catch up on the photos for the pages and I wouldn't feel as if I am letting you down.
Thank you so much for favors past and future. I love you all, Julane

DIRECTIONS FOR SENDING PHOTOS I would be happy to add your child's photo to the Angel Photo Tribute page. If you have a website, email the address to me and I can get the photo. Or, you can email me your scanned photo (please scan at 300 dpi), saved as .jpg.

If you do not have a scanner, you can mail a photo to me and I will scan it and return it to you. Please send a self-addressed, stamped envelope for the return. Please be sure to protect your photo. A greeting card and envelope work well to support your photo. You can mail it to me at Julane Grant, P.O. Box 843, Scappoose, Oregon 97056. Hey, if you want to buy the book at the same time, you don't have to include a stamped envelope, I will return your photo with the book. You can buy the book, directly from me, for just $6.95 and that includes S & H. Just a thought....
The above directions are also the way to get photos to me for the Birthday and Anniversary pages, the Very Special Hugs page and the Angel Gardens page.
