Thank you so much for your support!  Forgive the late reply - I have been taking a few steps back to just see where I am headed and to try to take better care of my health and my emotional well being.  This group is so supportive and it gives insight as to how to help others during their time of loss.  We learn the power of love as we move forward in our lives.  It is amazing how we come full circle with the teaching of the Bible - "love cures all thing."  Again, Thank you.

If you could ask just one question that you would like an answer to what would it be?

Elyse I think I'm posting on your wall. It will take me just a little time to get use to the site
I can relate to your having many questions that need to be answered. So many people say just pray and it will be ok or God took this person but this just does not answer our questions nor instil hope in us and hope is essential to our strength. When I loss my loved ones one of the greatest things that helped me cope was the answers to my questions and the hope that is given to us for our loved ones that we've loss on death. Death is not a normal thing It's not why we were created we were given life as a gift not death but the question that needs to be answered is why do we die and is there hope for the dead The answers to these questions and any other question is clearly found in the Bible. Once we come to learn this we are comforted with the truth

Hello elyse. It's Denise. I'm so sorry to hear about your brother. I too loss my brother in a very very tragic way
One thing that helps me cope are fond memories. My husband told me something that helps also. He said do not allow your mind to go to the tragedy but immediately switch that thought and think of fond memories of him as this will help me grieve in a healthy way and you know... He was right
It helps. I never allow the tragedy in my mind but I do realize he passed and I miss him very much. I have allowed myself to go thru the grieving process and it is definently a process but each phase of it is important as it has allowed fond cherished memories to flow

I lost my grandmother Sept 23. I was in the room with her alone when she passed. My grandparents raised me and the relationship I had with them was beyond words. She had fallen twice and when I saw her her face was literally purple...like one huge bruise. I held her and and told her she could go and to tell my grandpa hello for me when she was still breathing. A nurse came in and asked about to give her another dose of morphine but stopped short. I had been sitting in my grams chair at the time. I looked at the nurse and asked is she gone? She said yes. My world instantly crashed down. I held her hand again ran my fingers through her hair out my hand on her heart and told her I loved her. I could write a story about what happened and how I felt but I won't bore people. All I can say is I feel my childhood has disappeared and my heart is shattered. I still deal with losing my grandpa to this day and that was Jan 3, 1998. Ironically however he passed at 3am. Judging from the touch of my grams, she passed around the same time, 3am.

I used to say when I loss my parents that we were orphans. And my brother would say Hey they are still with us Now and forever just be a good girl lol. To lose my sister at 46 and my brother at 56 I am forever changed. The only ones that knew me better than they did were my parents. But I truly believe God only wants angels and I thank him for giving me two of the best besides my parents.

Elyse, try for less than 140 on Latest Conversations, if more, put it on the main Comment Wall. Hopefully you keep it short and sweet anyway, remembering it is being automatically emailed to hundreds of Members. Your page is also a good alternative.
