Six months ago tonight I lost my beautiful 30 year old younger sister. She was hit by two cars while attempting to cross an expressway after not being able to repair a flat tire. She left behind a 12 year old daughter. I love and miss her so much, it is still so hard to believe that she is actually gone.

I lost my 39 yr old younger sister on 2/12/10 in a senseless car accident when she was hit from behind,by an 18 wheeler, while stopped waiting to make a left hand turn.We were told that she died instantly and didn't suffer.While I take comfort in that I can't find comfort for me and my family.We have never had to deal with this depth of grief and me and my other 2 sisters can't get past the extreme grief that we feel.I go thru the motions of going to work each day but can't concentrate. I still cry each and every day and think of her. My greatest fear is that one day I'll not think of her that day and somehow that will be a betrayal of my love for her.She left behind an eleven year old son that I try to be strong for.I have a husband and a daughter but they can't understand why I don't just "move on".I don't want to be around people most of the time because I'm expected to act "normal" when things never will be normal for me again.I want the man that took my sister's life to suffer pain like I'm suffering.My church family states that it's God's will and if I will trust in Him he will ease my pain.I have prayed to God to take my pain but I'm afraid for the pain to go,that if I feel joy my sister's death is wiped away.I know that others feel and have felt the pain I'm in but when it's your pain you feel all alone in your grief.Someone please give me hope.

I need some one to talk to and understand the pain I'm in. I lost my brother 9-5-09 he was just 33 years old. I'm the blame my brother isn't here to day he was on drug so I try one of the family thing and hold him if he didn't fo get help then we all was going to turn our backs. That was the wrong thing to say he did go get help in a inpa drug rehab and past away 48 hours later I just cant stop thanking i killed my best freind so if i didn't ask him to go get help he would still be here with his family. All i find myseft doing is crying all the time my heart is broken. How can you get past something like thing. He and I was so close with each other now I fell, I have no one to talk and understand the hurt. I try to be there for our mother and other sibleing and his kids. Being there for all the other family that leaves me by myseft. My brother would be helping me with things like this.
He played a big part in my life see he was the one who gave me away on my wedding day and 9-12-98 and 12 years later I had to gave him to God on 9-12-09 how can that still be a special day. PLEASE CAN SOME ONE HELP ME I'M LOST

Hello All,

I lost my sister about a month ago to a misfortunate asthma attack. He had stopped taking her daily medication to save money resulting in her death when she had an asthma attack. She was in a coma for about week before the family decided to remove life support as she did not have viable brain functioning due to oxygen deprivation. It was sad and very difficult. I am her oldest sibling. She was only 39 and left a 7r yr old child and her husband. I coped with the loss by making a facebook fan page. I am also a crisis intervention counselor by trade so I have a lot of coping skills. I have another younger sister too. We all lost our mom to a tragic accident when we were kids, so this is almost a re-enactment of the past in a weird way. I've done alright, and of course, have had some regression in my own behavior. To be expected I think but not comfortable. My sister was one of the people I am closest to, so it's a huge loss. I could tell her anything because there wasn't much in life she had already done or wouldn't do. Enough said for now.

My brother passed away 2 years 7 months and 9 days ago. He was my big brother and always looked after me. He was my best friend. Wednesday, March 3 is his birthday...he will be 28 this year. Im so lost with out him and feel like i have been robbed of something so precious and dear to me. I dont know how to live anymore because im so consumed with grief, guilt,blame, sadness,anger, all of these emotions making circles and i cant escape or accept he is gone. I found him that day, me and my 2 nephew who were 2 and 3 at the time. The world kept moving on...and yet im stuck here on July 21 2007, the day the Lord called my brother home....

I have lost three siblings. The first was my youngest brother and we were wondering what had happended to my oldest brother, because he did not show up for the funeral. We later found out later that he was so weak he could not make it to the funeral. We had no idea that he was that sick. He died a few months later. My third brother passed a few years later. Each day you grow a little stronger. A day does not pass without me thinking or sometimes even crying. I miss them so very much. Thanks for letting me visit this group.

My heart goes to out everyone who comes to this page. I lost my brother at an early age, and while the loss never goes away, I am coping with it better now. And I'm actually able to talk about him and laugh at some of the funny times we had and remember the good times we had without breaking down. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. It's a hard thing, and we need to trust God to give us the strength we need to get through these times.

Friends as I have been reading some of your posts some seem so close to what I feel myself . It is a comfort to have people that do get it when friends, husbands, wives and other family clearly dont get how we feel unless they have lived it and everyone has there own grief they carry around and work through in their own way . Im thankful for all of you here.

Today makes one month since my sister passed away. I couldn’t bring myself out of bed this morning. How I wish I could talk to her. Every morning she would call me just to talk about anything. I miss so much. One month!! God this hurts so much my heart is broken. I still don’t understand why my sister why did she have to be sick.
