I went to a new bereavement group last night and I couldn't speak beyond saying I lost my brother in a drowning.At times I feel numb,I want to say something,but I guess I just can't talk in front of alot of people.Maybe in time that will change,but I think talking about your loss helps,it releases things on your mind.Which on here is helpful as well,though you may not receive a response,it's an outlet for your thoughts.So Thank you Legacy for providing us a place we can come together and share with each other.

When I think of my life without my brother,I often think of what's the purpose.The heartache you leave behind can last a lifetime.I know because I have that heartache.I MISS MY BROTHER ‼

Losing people has changed me forever! My Grandma-who raised me, my daughter, my brother, my Mom, my best friend, and too many others!!! I asked God to give me all of Candace's problems but I never thought it would include her. I think God let Candace die instead of one of her girls. I just don't understand but when I cross-over it will all be perfectly clear.  Lord, Bless all of us here, Amen.

Melinda, the grieving process has no expiration date. I lost my mother on 10/18/1999 and there is not a day that does not go by that I do not think of her. After her passing, I conducted a "Coping With The Loss of a Loved One" roundtable and people of different walks of life attended. It really help me to understand that it s okay to cry and think about your loved one; knowing they are no longer suffering. Also, I learned how to be selfless and not selfish.

You are so welcome. No I am Janelle from Cleveland, Ohio. Honestly, I lived in Astoria, NY for the past 5 years. Prior to that, I lived in Harlem, NY for 3 years and I lived in Cleveland, Ohio for all but, 8 years of my life. I have never been to California.

I feel like I'm on a ship that's sinking. He left 9/22/14. I think I should be better than this.  It's unbelievable, so wrong. It makes me think, where is God in all this? I need to stay strong. He's right (think positive) here with me and wishes I could understand why it needed to go this way. Lord keep me strong, Candace is with him, they're ok.

I am sorry for the loss of your lil' brother too (what happened to him too).

Comment by Melinda CANDACE Guinn on April 12, 2017 at 7:13pm

Jannelle, I'm so sorry.

Janet, The hospital needs to be accountable for that! My lil' brother was given nano units instead of micros. They gave him WAY to much, seconds later he told his wife, "check the medicine, something's wrong". He then had a heart attack and left us all!!! That was 9/22/14. It hurts EVERYDAY! We didn't see each other that often anymore but when he was told he was dying. I made plans to see him the following Wednesday. Sadly, he passed on Monday!!! As kids we were very close and I even lived with his family for a few months while I was recuperating from an accident. I think about him numerous times a day. I'm holding a pic of him,  I hug it. He's plays guitar, a Les Paul; he has a Fender Straticaster too. Doug's a Respiratory Therapist, his wife is a nurse and their daughter's going to college to be a doctor. She told me he won't be able to walk her down the aisle when she gets married. SO SAD! It hurts!!!Oooooh My Dougie!!!!! I LOVE you Doug, so very much!!!
