Sharon:  My brother's "angel day" was March 9, 2010.  The gut-wrenching pain has subsided.  I still think about him and miss him every day.  I can think about him now without crying most of the time. Occasionally, it almost seems harder like when I'm with his 3 grandchildren.  He loved them so very much.  At least he got to know them unlike your brother.  I treasure all of the precious memories I have of my brother as I'm sure you do, too.

It will be two years on Dec. 12th since my brother Paul died. He never got to meet his beautiful granddaughter who is one years old now. I miss him everyday since he died does it get any easier? 

All the time

Hi I lost my younger brother on October 22, 2013. He slipped and fell hit his head when he was getting out of the shower at his apartment. He was 32 years old. He was 10 years younger than me. His girlfriend was with him she said he was gone before the ambulance came so he was already gone by the time my mom and I got to the hospital. Drs. Said there was too much hemorrhaging and they couldn't get to it to relieve pressure. We seen each other almost every night. I had just seen him the night before he was going to stop by my house that night. He didn't show then I got a call from my mom telling me my brother was on his way to the hospital. It was around midnight so I drove her to the hospital. I couldn't believe that just hours ago I was talking with him laughing and joking with each other like we always did. I also have another brother he is 3 years younger than me. He was 7 years older than my other brother. So I had to call him 2 in the morning to let him know our baby bro wasn't going to make it that was the hardest call I have ever made. It's difficult for me to type it now I started to cry. It has been a difficult, emotional, year for the family and his friends. One of his friends tried to kill himself early October of the year by flipping his brand new Camero he said he wanted to see my brother. So sad but thank God he is alive. It sucked cause my brother passed away before Halloween he loved Halloween Christmas too. He had no children so he would get my mom, my daughter and I whatever we wanted for Christmas. For me he was always buying me things throughout the year. Looking around my house almost everywhere I look it's something he bought me or gave to me. He was that kind of person giving and never asking for anything back. I miss him so much he just wasn't my brother, he was my best friend. That day I lost my best friend.

Thank you everyone for your posts.  Yesterday I took flowers and la card/etter to Lisa and put them on her resting place and my mom took her a new angel.  We visited her for a long while.  It was almost harder yesterday than the day of her memorial service one year ago.  I so want to talk with Lisa again but also know we will be reunited someday.  But this side of heaven remains a hard place to be.

Take care everyone and know you are not alone.

Karen:  The first anniversary of a loved one's "angel day" is very difficult.  One suggestion given to me was to let the feeling of loss happen, but also focus on the wonderful life of your loved one. There just isn't a easy way to get through it.  However, I believe prayers are powerful.  You and your family will be remembered in mine this morning.  Do you have something planned to do in her memory today?  May God's peace and comfort be with you today.

Hello Meghan and everyone:

Grief is a lonely journey-that is true.  I am so sorry for all of your losses and please pray for me and my family today as it is the one year anniversary for my sister Lisa's passing.  Lisa was my younger sister, a beautiful person inside and out, and truly my best friend.  She suffered from neuroendocrine cancer for 7 years and wanted to live so much.  She loved her family and was a true warrior for the Lord.  Today I feel this intense pain all over again but magnified somehow.  My mom is suffering so much over this loss too.  I appreciate all of you and again ask for your prayers.

I haven't participated in this group for awhile....
It's coming up to 2 1/2 yrs (Xmas day) since I lost my little sister (32yrs old) to prescription medication. She was all alone when she passed. Mum found her the next day. She had to have an autopsy and then we weren't allowed to see her so I never had the chance to say goodbye.
I have now lodged a formal complaint against her doctor of 7yrs and her cause of death is being investigated. The combination of medication he had her on is what killed her. Knowing that he has to answer to the medical board and explain his actions has given me a little peace.
Grief is a lonely journey that only those who have experienced it understand.

Dear Melinda:

I am so sorry for your loss.  I lost my sister Lisa and still cannot believe she is gone (one year ago this November 7th).   These losses are so very difficult that I truly believe no on emerges as the same person.  A part of me left this earth when my sister did and I struggle with life without her.  While I was angry at God for quite a while I realize now I must lean on my faith and family to get me through and I wish you can do this as well.  I do not understand why God takes such precious people from this world but I sure plan on asking that when I see everyone again in heaven.

My prayers are with you,
