Hello. I was, well glad just seems like the wrong word, maybe relieved, to find a group that deals with the loss of  Niece or Nephew.  About a month ago, my 17 year old niece, Brittany Korrine Ellis, was the 6th passenger in a car that only had seating for 5. She was sitting on her boyfriends lap.  A deer jumped in front of the car, and the 18 year old driver lost control of the car and it flipped several times. Brittany was partially ejected. The EMT's on the scene tried valiantly to save her, revived her serveral times. But, at the hospital, they lost her again and was unable to revive her. She is my husband's Sister's oldest daughter. I've known her since she was 5 years old. They lived about an hour and a hal away, and unfortuneatly, I did not get to see her as much as I'd have like to over the years, what with having our two boys (one of which is Autistic).  But her death has hit me so hard. What I could have done differently. Been there more for her. Not to mention, I've no clue what to say or do for my SIL and my other niece, Natalie.  I find myself in tears at random things throughout the day. Honestly, I've never handle greif well, but then, who does??? I just keep thinking, dang, if it's this hard for me, my poor SIL. My heart is broken, hers must be shattered. 


Thanks for reading my rambles.

my nephew, devin, was injured in a fall while at college on january 15th and was pronounced brain dead on january 18th, one day after his 19th birthday. his funeral was on the 25th. i live in california and my brother and his family live in florida, so it's been about a year and a half since i had last seen dev. i come from a large family and everyone went to florida... all the brothers/sisters (there are nine of us) and their families, our parents, my sister-in-law's brother (her sister and parents have passed). i am just so devastated. i don't know how to deal with this at all. i've had other loved ones die, both anticipated and those that were out of the blue, but this is so much more horrible. he was such a wonderful young man... sweet and kind and intelligent... funny and irreverant, so beautiful. i just can't wrap my head around this at all. i'm back at work since monday and i feel like i'm on another planet. i can't imagine a world without devin in it and i still, even having seen his body in the casket, cannot believe this has happened. all i want to do is stay home and cry and hide and, at the same time, talk to people who might understand, or who will at least by sympathetic. things will never be the same and i don't know how i'll ever get through this.
