HOW DO YOU HANDLE BIRTHDAY?

My sister's 50th Birthday is coming up on April 29th. We talked about this big "Over the Hill" basth. She died on August 20th, 2010. I'm not sure how to approach my family about this. Should I ask my parents if they want to celebrate? I don't feel like celebrating. I don't want the day to go by with out acknowledging it. I still miss her so much. I don't want to depress everyone but I want to remember.

HOW DO YOU HELP SOMEONE WHO LOST BOTH PARENTS

My sister recently passed away at the age of 49. She only had 1 son who is 10 years old. He father passed away when he was about 6 months old. I know I can never replace my sister nor would I ever want to but how can I help him thru this difficult time. I get the feeling he's uncomfortable now that it's me that attends all his school functions & not his mom.

Hi Allison.  As to feeling normal again, I have no idea when that will happen.  My younger brother, and only sibling, died VERY unexpectedly on Dec. 29, 2010.  A neighbor found him slumped over in the driveway, it was very upsetting to hear the details.  He lived in NJ and I live in FL, so the distance was hard to deal with as well. It is devastating.

Allison, I am so sorry about your sister. I know exactly how you feel and I too go through every thing in my head. But you have to know that our sisters are in heaven and no longer in pain. I would give every thing to hear my sister's voice again, but I know just like you knew that your sister was in so much pain that leaving us was the only way to stop their pain. I will say a prayer for you and your sister. God bless you and keep you strong each day.
