My name is James Heide.I had taken care of my father for almost two years.During this time I prepared meals for him, bathed him, took him to his doctors and even took on the roll of a nurse.I checked his blood levels, set up his I.V. machine, cleaned up his messes and waited on him hand and foot..My dad had colon cancer which he died from it two years later.After he died, it was like my family turned against me.It was like they were blaming me for his death.They turned my mother against me and told her that I did not love her or my father.They constantly criticized me to my mother that she no longer trusted me as her son.Since then they have tried to split my wife and I apart.Has told lies against me and even disowned me as a son of the Heides.I love my family and would do anything for them.Even take care of them.I have asked for forgiveness from them and even tried to make amends.I feel as if I have doner anything wrong but I still ask forgiveness.I want this because I have been having troubles with my colon and do not know what is going to happen.The Lord says that we are to forgive one another as He has forgave us.I have tried but do not know what else to do.Please pray for me and my family.I have asked the Lord to come into my life July 4, 1982 but have not lead a complete Christian life.I have asked forgiveness but feel unsured about this.I love the LORD and know he is the Savior.I just can not forgive me.Please again pray for me and my circumstances.Thankyou and all my friends in Christ.

Well Dee we know what we did for our Mom and we are not the one that turned our back on her. They are the ones that have to live what they had done. They didn't even miss one day of work to help or be with there own Mother but we did and if we had to do it all over again we would in a heart beat. Well Mom loved all of us and showed each and everyone her special love.

I lost my mother back in July. To cancer. She was my best friend along with being my mother. We did everything together. When she became ill from the chemo twice it put her into the hospital. The second time it attacked her heart. I gave her the options to either do the chemo or not to. This was a very hard thing for me. But she was getting tired of going to the hospital and being sick. Her 4 daughters did like like the way our mother was when she did the chemo. She just sat in her chair and didn't even talk or laugh with us. It was like she was in a different world. Anyways there were 3 other sibblings who was mad at her for quiting the chemo. Everytime they came over all they did was yell at her even on mothers day the called her everything but a good mother. The one brother even went to choke me a couple of days before she passed. Said this was all my doings. Just because she quit the chemo. But they were not there to see how she was either. I forgave him for what he did to me. But you see she was all I had.

How painful to have a child go, before you go home to be with the Lord. This happened to one of my Church Family, and his Father was the one to discover this.

my brother accidentally killed his best friend Feb. 2002 drinking and driving. It just doesn't just affect the victim and family it affects everyone. I haven't spoke to the victim's family but my brother goes every year to the accident and puts flowers there. Darrin R>I>P>We love you. THank you Matthew West.

How awesome our God is! Tonight I am struggling with forgiveness issues myself and somehow click on this video and begin crying. To forgive and fight for an early release of your sons killer can only be done through the power of God!
