I am sitting here reading all the messages and my heart hurts, I am so sorry for all the pain everyone has to bare. As I read I remember my sister who I miss more and more everyday, I never got to say goodbye, as the day gets closer to the day she passed away one year ago on 11/10/08 I want so much to see her, to hear her voice again. I can't get through the day without crying, I want the pain to stop,when I am at work I seem to take out on everyone I work around and when I am at home I try to keep it in. I just need to hear her say everything will be ok and to tell her I love her and miss her so very much. I want to Thank you all for listening.

I lost my brother to lung cancer last month. We were all with him when he died at home, his wife, sons, all his siblings and my father.
I can't seem to get past that day he died and the days leading up to it.
I have always feared losing one of my siblings...
Its a strange feeling. I hope joining this group and sharing with others and seeing other people with similar stories will help. God bless

My brother Carl and I had a very strange relationship. We fought often and hard as children and spent our adulthood resenting each other mostly. I didn't "like" him growing up but I loved him. When Carl died...I part of me died too. He was brutally shot to death on Dec 5, 2005. A breakout year for me but the last year of life for him. Do I have feelings of extreme guilt...guilt that I'm still here and he is not...everyday. Why am I allowed to enjoy the things of this life while his life was so messed up?

My only sister was killed on 07-27-1994 she had left home about a year before and was in a diffrent state when this happened she was my big sister and we were very close. She had 2 boys before she left . we expected her to come hme alive but that didn't happen . She was shot 3 times and died in loiusana in the ambulance on the way to the hospital the texas rangers called us to tell us she was dead . people at her funeral kept saying we know how you feel and the only thing I could say was have you ever had a brother or a sister die if not YOU DON'T KNOW HOW I FEEL . and thats the truth . first it was my grandpa then my dad 3 months later then my sister murdered all within a matter of months kind of hard to swallow

Hello all, on March 15 of this year my big brother was shot to death, i think about him everyday. i'm left with so many memories good and bad and it hurts so bad. I think i would have felt better if he died from natural causes but having someone take his life i have so much anger inside and its unbearable at times. I wish i could have done something to help him, i fell so helpless. Many people try to console me but they have no idea what i am going thru.... it is an awful feeling, i miss him so much.

two months ago, I lost my older sister, Shannon, to pancreatic cancer. I am still so emotional over this loss and miss her so much. I dont know who to talk to, because I feel nobody understands how I feel. People try to comfort me, but it really doesn't help me at all. My sister was my best friend in the whole world, and was my hero ever since I could remember. I need to make myself better, for my children. I haven't been a good mom at all to my 5 daughters since this all happened. I was fortunate enough to visit my sister for two weeks, 2 weeks before we lost her. My little sister and I flew out there, and we knew it would be the last time the 3 of us would ever be together like that. Shannon passed away 2 weeks after my birthday (which was the day I came home). I just can't get past this loss and I feel so lost without her and just don't know what to do with myself, and I hate that! I kept telling myself I could handle this, but it seems to be harder for me than anyone else. I feel so alone, and sad all the time, and I cant seem to snap out of it!! And with the holidays getting closer, I seem to be having more sad says that happy days...

I found this picture of my sister Linda, It was taken 25 years ago when she graduated from nursing school,and she was great at what she did. She cared for people, 2 and a half years ago she decided to go into hospise care, she visited people everyday, working with families and her patients,she cared alot for them. Then in 2008 she became a patient. I miss her so very much. She is and always will be my best friend. Linda Ruth Saine 07/09/51- 11/10/08. Even though this picture is old she still looked the same.

Hello to all. I was shown this site by my Brother-in-law. I have lost my sister to pneumonia in June of this year. I am having such a hard time dealing with it. She was my one and only sister. My Big sister. The only one that I ever had, or ever will. It is nice to know that there are others out there that know how this feels. It's so easy for people to say, "I think it's time you get over it now." How in the h-ll do I do this?? She had told me 2 weeks before she died that she just wanted to make it to her 50th birthday. Well, that is the 23rd of this month. October. How do I act on that day?? I've already told everyone that they should probably just let me alone that day, but is that the right thing to do?? I just don't know. I just don't understand why she was taken away. I guess God needed that "Special Angel" with him?? I could go on and on, but I won't. I will stop here for now. I wish for everyone here love, peace, and understanding.
