Missing My Brother

Words sometimes cannot describe the anguish I feel with the loss of my brother.Sometimes I don't feel sane,but I guess it's part of the grieving.Everyone's grief is different.The longing I feel for my brother will last my lifetime.I feel like I'm drifting through.People occasionally tell me,your brother would want you to be happy,go on with life.Happy? Go on with life? I feel that they don't know what to say and maybe that sounds good to them to say.For me,there is no happy.Go on with life,I'm…See More

Thank you for your support.I know died to me seems harsh. So I usually just say passed. I'm sorry for your loss. To me it just gets harder and harder each day. People say oh it gets better over time,but I told my mom not for me. She said yeah I know. He was her baby the youngest. We still wait for his call around 2:00am after last call to pick him up at the casino. We live on a reservation and have a casino. I never realized that he was a big part of our lives.

I hold onto the many beautiful thoughts I have of my Brother.  He was overworked and tired - when he was found in his vehicle.  He had such a beautiful spirit about himself.   You too, Elyse - hold onto the many cherished moments you shared with your brother; knowing that all of the pain we are feeling now - will soon be a thing of the past, according to Revelation 21:3,4.  Hold onto the hope you find in your Bible.   Just knowing, that our Heavenly Father will re-unite us in the near future brings me so much joy in my heart with that hope that lives within me. (John 5:28, 29)

Hello, Elyse - feel free to scroll through any of my posting.  Yes, I do have a strong spiritual belief and it is what keep me in a healthy frame of mind with all of the promises given to us by our Heavenly Father.  So, I am happy to know that I was able to offer you some sort of comfort.  If you have any additional questions - feel free to message me.  I am still learning how to navigate on this site.

Elyse, it was really kind of you for sending me the address to place on google to get the photo and words posted. By mistake I've taken a screenshot. Yet I don't know how to do it consciously

What do I click on to do that?  Thanks so very much Barbara .

Elyse, thank you for you nice message. I was going to respond but was unable to do that and therefore had to become friends. I thought we were friends. Maybe I'm thinking of you being in the many friends I had but lost due to my re-registering for a second time. I didn't have to do that but didn't realize until too late.

Yesterday I was doing some experimental cooking. It is like meditation for me. Then at night I went to the concert in the park. Every week there is a band with great musicians singing. I like to dance and feel like 17 with a small group of people that attend every week too. If it rains or is too humid the concert is held at the senior center. I told my husband the other day that we were going to celebrate our son Joe's birthday by going out to dinner. Now with my staying up to late and all that I have to do but can't due to a headache I can't concentrate on what I need to do. I decided we will stay home instead. We celebrate his life every day by talking about Joe and sending our love to him. That's all anyone can do as that is all anyone can take when they go into another dimension. I like to use my imagination to get through life. Thank you so much I appreciate y6ur reaching out to me with your kind words.

Cyber Hugs, Barbara

Today May 28,will be imprinted in my mind forever.It is the day my brother went missing 2 years ago today.It's hard to believe he is no longer here.It's now 2 years and the same thoughts seem to invade my mind.Can I ever accept that it was a "Undetermined Drowning",I don't think so,that's why my mind is not at rest.There is no real answer and that's part of my pain.I have so many happy memories of my brother,I will cherish them forever,though I wish my brother were here instead.elyse, sister of… Continue
