I am at such a loss. I am the youngest. My last Brother age 49 passed away 3 weeks ago. I lost my oldest brother age 47 4 years ago, 5 months later my father died, my middle brother age 42 died 7 years. I am so thankful to still have my Mother.
When post come to my e mail.. and I come to answer that post I Am not able to find it. What am I doing wrong. And thank you for any help.
The death of my precious Sister, Eileen Bonnie. She was born with Downs Syndrome and had lived the last 14 years with us after my Mom's death. We enjoyed evey second she was with us and we watched her grow and bloom into a beautiful young lady. She developed Alzheimer's and I knew we would lose her, but the pain and loss is so much greater that I ever imagined it could be. I have to try to start moving on with our lives, but I am paralized with loss and pain.
Thank you so much for sharing your story with me. It is just unbelievable that these terrible things can happen so often in one's life. My mother went just as suddenly as Cathy did 6 1/2 years ago. She had stomach cramps so Cathy took her to the emergency room. 6 hours later she was gone and I could not get there in time to even say goodbye. I have never really gotten over that. My parents were divorced, but close, they started dating when my mom was 12 and he was 14. He died 9 months later and I swear his broken heart played a big part in that. My sister and I helped each other through that terrible time and every October 26th, which is the date my mom passed, she would come meet me in the city and we would do something fun and the go have dinner because we knew my mom would not want us sitting around moping. This October will be unbearable knowing Cathy will not be with me.
I was with her husband and kids again this weekend and will be with them next weekend too. My brother in law calls me every night when he gets home from work. He just cannot stand walking in that door every night to no Cathy. His two daughters are there and he tries to put on a good face for them, but he can't sustain it for long. I so worry about him.
Thank you again for listening to my agony. I am so sorry for all the pain you have suffered through. I am glad you have your daughter and she has you to help you both through this.
