My sister will be gone 2 years on Saturday. It is surreal to think that it has been 2 years since i heard her laugh, saw her smile, and talked to her. She was killed in a head on collision at the age of 21 and every day my heart breaks that she did not get to live her life. She had just been married a couple weeks earlier and it devastates me on a daily basis. RIp my dear little sister...I miss you every day.

Hi everyone,
I too am grieving the loss of my younger sister Theresa.
She was killed by her second husband of nine months.
I have attended a very helpful support group locally called GriefShare.
But it's nice to be able to share with others in an online group as well.

I'm sorry for each of our losses.

I am sorry Judy and Melissa.  This is a hard week for me as my sister Lisa's birthday is this Friday.  She left this , world on November 7, 2013.  She is my little sister and how I miss her.  We were best friends and a part of me is also gone.  While we all go on, we are never the same.

Best,

Karen Liller

I'm so sorry Judy. My older sister and I are very close. Our little brother just passed away 9/22/14 drom PHT, a respiratoty disease AND HE'S a Respiratory Therapist!

My older sister passed away less than two months ago.  My husband passed two years ago and I grieve for him every day.  My sister and I were very close - it was just she and I - no other siblings.  She was like a little mother to me my whole life of 75 years and, although my husband and I moved to another state 8 years ago, she was only a phone call away.  It seems like grief for my sister is now "layered" on top of grief for my husband.  I miss her so much.

Thanks Margaret. I just finished rewatching the video of my lil' brother Doug, when he got married on 12/08/90. Their daughter Ashley's grown now and attending college, which Doug is happy about. I miss Dougie so very, VERY much!!! He's a Resoiratory Therapist and passed from PHT or PVOD. I bet in his line of work, he caught something! So sad, he's such a good, kind and funny as heck kind of guy! I LOVE/MISS you so much!!! WHY???!!!

May the God of all comfort be with everyone today. You are in my prayers...

Gwen, I'm curious what your actual beliefs are when we pass? I was raised believing in God. I don't go to church but I talk to God. When my daughter passed 4/09/10, then my younger brother on 9/11/14, I HAVE to believe in a higher power for my own sanity! I have LOST two VERY important people in my life.I live in the USA, that's WHY we can talk like this. My advice is to skip over a post you find unnerving. Too many people have fought and died for my rights.

The loss of my sister was my very first "loss". I teach that grief is not just a result of experiencing a loss through death; the potential for a grief experience can come as a result of anything in our lives that causes change. My sister would be excited to know that something good has come of her death --- and that is the way that I view what I have personally gained through this experience.  Sometimes people look at me in an odd sort of way when I talk about this.  I knew that I had to make sense out of what happened and this has been my way of doing it. In hospice, I see people of all ages, families with many dynamics all doing this same thing .... searching for an understanding. Of course, when someone dies at such a young age, it doesn't for the normal life cycle that we expect. It adds an additional layer of "stuff" to sort through. Comfort will come ..... but it is definitely a process.

Hi Pam-

I really agree with you.  Tears very easily come to my eyes when I think of Lisa as she passed such a short time ago.  She really thought she would beat cancer and wanted to live so badly.  She was only 49.  I now wear one of her favorite rings all the time and my daughter, who was very close to her, wears her bracelet.  She is always very near.  It is heartening to hear that you counsel individuals who have lost siblings.  We are a unique group and I am glad that you have joined us.

Best,

Karen
