It has been a year now since I lost my only younger sibling on August 24, 2017. He was my best friend, my rock, someone I could confine in as the bond brothers share, do. Unfortunately, we missed the signs and he hid them well so our world was shattered when the phone call came. I have learned this past year that this kind of death no one really wants to talk about or knows how to talk about. We need to make mental illness a higher priority in this country before more lives are lost.
I lost my only baby sister in 2000 - she was murdered and left behind her 12 year old daughter. Her live in boyfriend was her killer and received life without parole - he died a few years later in prison. Her daughter grew into a beautiful woman, married with three beautiful children. Every time I look at her I see my sister and have slipped up and called her by my sister's name. I have no one else besides a few nieces and great nephews/nieces - cousins are all in the south and they don't have contact with me. So basically my husband has family on east side but we don't see them to often - but do keep in touch.
I keep thinking to myself,Why my brother,my only sibling.Why did this happen to you.Can I live the rest of my life with not knowing.
Losing my brother has changed my life FOREVER.There is an emptiness in my life .My brother should be here,we should be here for each other,now and in the future.My only sibling.WHY?
Diamond, Amiss the sorrow, we WILL be reunited, so it is NOT forever. Just in this lifetime. Our souls moves on and we WILL be reunited! It was hard for me to wrap my head around it, but my daughter Candace and a friend, Ward; their Spirits came to me!!! I hurt for her daughter's and their Dad. Me too.
Losing a sibling is not easy; the many cherished memories are always there to remind you of the love once shared. A sibling is meant to be there for us; how we miss their laughter and their shoulder we used when in need of comfort from the world abnormalities. How I miss my brothers dearly - they had a heart of gold. A heart that I will forever miss!
I feel for you. I'm SO VERY sorry!! My lil bro is almost 3 yrs younger than me. He had PHT. I wanted to give him one of my lungs but he told me, "it won't be a good ending". I think he thought we'd both die. He was 54 yrs old with a loving wife and his only child, Ashley adores him. His Spirit came to visit them but they were scared. When my daughter's Spirit came to me, it freaked me out but I was overjoyed!!! We will be reunited!
I lost my younger brother 3 weeks. I am crying all the time and still can't believe he is gone
HiKaren, I agree. Even there is no response, the sharing is so important. I know how it is to just cry and cry when I think of my brother. I loved him so much. We have to take care of ourselves. My mother used to say that grieving never stops. It just gets less intense over the years. Well, I am inclined to agree with her.
This happens to me too when I discuss my sister Lisa. I usually start crying-so much is still so raw. I too love this site and even if people don't respond it still is a place to share. Take care and God Bless.
