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
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 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,
