Christene I'm so sorry for the loss of your brother. My sister left behind 3 children, and 1 stepson. The oldest is 18, and so the last even she attended was his graduation. She's been gone 3 months but already she's missed him buying his first car, and completing his first term in college. Those are just small firsts, but it only reminds us of everything she won't be here for. She won't get to see any of them marry. Or hold any of her grandchildren. Her youngest is starting high school next year...and it's already a rough age really. I don't think it ever really stops hurting...but it does become...more bearable I guess. You just learn to live with it. At least that's been my experience with previous losses.../hugs
My Brother Joe Died Feb.20,2010, I miss him still so much. Especially when his youngest son and his wife had a beautiful baby boy Jan.4,2014 who looks just like my brother, His Grandpa and a year ago Oct 15,2012 his 2nd son and his wife had a beautiful little girl who also looks just like him. His only daughter just graduated from nurseing school on Dec. 20,2013 It breaks my heart that he isn't here to see all these great things happening with his children. I hurt for the kids who miss him and I pray that it will not hurt so bad someday.
Like Danielle I hope everyone made it through the holidays and is making it through the New Year. I am very busy at work so while this is distracting my thoughts of Lisa are never far away. I find myself writing to her and talking to her everyday and it really is helping. I pray all of us have a better 2014.
I made it through the holidays. I didn't think it was going to be possible a few months ago, but I made it. It was so different without my little sister there. She was the one that made the season festive by decorating the tree and decorating my parents house for Christmas. That was her gift to us. This year, there were no decorations, and there was no tree, but there was family. We all did what we needed to do to get through. Not to say it was not hard. It was excrutiating. But it was a time of rememberance. We talked about my sister and the funny things that she used to do and our favorite memories. It brought a sense of peace.
I sincerely hope that everyone in this community is doing well, and if not, that they find peace in being a part of this community where they know that they are not alone.
Leah, I lost my brother age 32 on Feb 10, 2012. Its almost been 2 years and I still find the grief very strong and hard. I love this site to read the posts and to be somewhere i dont feel alone, or behind. We are all a little broken. People keep telling me to find a new normal, but i dont think it comes easily. It is so hard with Xmas just passing and again no brother present. Its heart wrenching pain and the kind that changes you forever. I also feel that my brother would want me to move on so I am trying to heal more this year and accept what can never be changed. we all have a plan before we get here. All we can do is the best until its our time to leave as well. I am sorry for your losses and just know one day at a time it will maybe get easier for us all.xx
