I just read that post you did elyse, "missing my brother, FOREVER", with a heavy heart I agree implicitly.

Yesterday my mom passed away as well. She had heart surgery on his 1yr anniversary and died a week later. Only comfort right now is knowing they are together.

elyse, those are the words that I use regarding myself, "my past, present and future" are gone. Candace had just turned 30, less than two months b/4 she left.  That was April 09, 2010. Then on Sept. 22, 2014, my younger bro passed from PHT!!! He almost died when he was about 6, I think the good Lord let him live and he and his wife raised a very smart daughter who's going to college to become a doctor! I love and miss them so very much! I'm glad Candace (my lil' Boog) was there to greet My Dougie! We'll be reunited, I know. Candace is my only child. Lord please comfort elyse and Susan, Amen.

Tuesday 2/28 will be 1 yr since my brother and only sibling unexpectedly passed away from what was determined to be an undiagnosed heart condition at 37years old. I never could've imagined how difficult dealing with this type of loss could be.

I recently went to a "medium".I was intrigued yet skeptical as to what would happen.But as it turned out I left disheartened after spending an hour there.She mentioned names that had no connection and didn't know anything about my brother,after me saying he was found in a lake,she was curious herself.That was all I went for,my unanswered questions.I keep going over and over in my mind the day my brother went missing and then when he was found,it is hard to believe my brother is not here.My past,my present,my future is gone.

My sister is my best friend too Karen. You have my sympathy.That's good you write her, I know her Spirit sees it. My sister is four yrs older than me and she was diagnosed with R.A.  Life is too short, I wish I realized this when I was younger.

I wish everyone peace as they are dealing with their grief.  I lost my younger sister Lisa to neuroendocrine cancer on November 7, 2013.  The anniversary is coming up soon and I dread that day.  She was my best friend and we were to grow old together.  I still write to her everyday to let her know what is going on in our lives.  I too believe we will be together again.

God Bless.

Thanks Claretha.

To Melinda Candace Guinn, I feel your pain. This is only the second year. I lost my brother to lung cancer in 2008 in October. I still feel the pain, vividly at times. Especially this time of the year and his birthday is in December. You will always feel as if you are going through the first stages of grief at times. I am so sorry you lost your daughter shortly after your brother. It makes your grieving different because you lost them so close together.  I am with you when you say we will be together soon.

Today marks the second year since my brother Doug has passed. He was only 54 yrs old. He and his wife have a daughter in college. She's going to be a doctor. I have three small pics right here on my desk, then an 8 X10 right here so I can look up at him easily. I replay his voice in my head.I have a pic on the wall with him holding his Les Paul bass. His daughter told me Doug's playing with John Lennon up in Heaven. I know he is! My daughter Candace, who passed less than two months after she turned 30, on 4/09/10, is rockin' with him!   I miss them both SO VERY much!!! My Dougie passed from PHT. We WILL be reunited!
