Comment by Sandy Murray yesterday

I lost my only sister 24 years ago.  It seems like she never existed.  No one talks about her.  My mother is gone so I have no one to talk about her with.  I miss her.  She was my rock when we lost out son.  She died a few short months after our son was kill.  It almost did me in.  I had so many losses that year.  My cousin had a still born birth the same month my son was killed.  My father died before our son and then my sister.  I don't know why I am having such a hard time after so many years.  I love my sister and miss her dearly.

I know how you feel, Elyse. I lost my lost brother with lung cancer in October, 2008. I miss him so much. Most of the family don't talk about him and when I do, I get the feeling no one wants to listen. I may be a lot sensitive, but I miss him so much. I am so grateful for Legacy. You can say how you feel without judgement. Family can be judgemental as well as others. Take care of yourself and treat yourself with kindness.

Haven't posted in quite some time, though I have the need for it. Seems like through this online group can be more support than  your own family. Family should be there for you to share your grief, your feelings, your tears, though sometimes they're not. I can't speak of my grief with my family.I can't express my feelings, my tears. They don't want to hear of it.It feels like grief with no where to go.

I also wonder too and questioning myself that no one was there to save my brother.A few yrs ago,my brother saved someone in a pool from drowning,yet when he was ,though not in a pool but the lake,no one was there.I have so much guilt ,I myself couldn't save my brother.How lonely life is without my brother.No other siblings for support.

I miss you every single day My Dougie! I feel so bad for your wife and daughter!! You're such a good, honest and funny man, As a Respiratory Therapist you saved lives.

Diamond, In my Bible I have those verses highlited. Did you  mention them before? Or maybe someone from the "loss of a child" site mentioned those verses because I lost my 30 yr old only child, CANDACE RAE WATSON on April 9th, 2010 then My Dougie on September 22, 2014 from PHT!!

I know elyse, the world should've stopped spinning when my brother Doug left!Holidays only increase the pain! Diamond, I know the feeling! One day the pain isn't as deep and I think I've got a handle on it then a couple days later I can't bring myself to talk to his wife or daughter! Doug's wife is harder, we both cry Try and have a blessed Christmas because they're waiting for us and time moves very quickly in their dimension, so for them it'll be like not very much time has passed.Dear Lord. Please comfort us all, especially during your season. On Jesus' name, Amen.

Revelation 21:3,4 is a beautiful promise!!!!!

Loosing a loved one is an emotional tradegy. We seem never to get a grip on the reality of the situatuon. One day we feel we have accepted the loss and then like an emotional roller coaster our feelings just get all tangled into a web of tears and regrets. Regrets we create for not having more time with them, regrets for wanting more from ourselves to give to them. We cry for them, we long to hear their voices again. How we wish we can turn back the hands of time.
