Elyse, I was just reading the comments on your walls looking for just words of encouragement for the lost of our love one. I miss my brother so much and he is the last brother - that was alive. I lost my younger brother and now I have lost my older brother. I read how you miss your brother and what a kind person he was and how he was truly cherished by his family. I hope you are able to find comfort in your heart with the love you shared with your brother.
I just lost my last only living brother in July 2017, and I can't state how much it pained me to know that he is no more. I feel like it was just a bad dream- a dream that seems unreal. I long to hear his voice again. He was so loving yet while alive I wish everyone would have seen the beauty in his heart. He gave and often receive little in return in respects to the love he gave to others. People always assume you will always be there - yet not knowing when it will be your last day here on earth.
I miss his voice - just miss knowing he was alive and well. Miss knowing that he loved me. I look forward to seeing him again as promised in the Bible at Revelation 21:3,4.
Elyse, Thank you for thinking of me! You have a heart of gold...I'm so dang sad!!! Going through too much all at one time and just don't have the courage to keep reliving the past three years...so much and then my dad died...which triggered everything! Thanks again. You are,so special...I feel as if I know you. Talk soon. Cherish
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, 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.
My son was killed in a car accident in Paducah, Ky on Dec 21, 2015. He was 23. His funeral was on Christmas Eve. My son was one of those young men who everyone liked. For several days and weeks after his death, people would post things on his facebook page. I know that life goes on, but it's hard knowing that my son is not. I don't talk a lot about him, but when I do, it's like people expect me to move on to other areas. I don't want for him to be forgotten. He lived, he laughed and he loved. I miss the calls late at night, talking about life and what was going on in his life. Will I ever get peace?
Hi...thank you for your condolences. I am very sorry for your loss of your brother and your dad. My dad's death has just made everything worse because I have already been dealing with a lot of stress and pain for the past two and a half years. I hope this group will help also. You are welcome for my sharing of your post. I really liked it! I appreciate your help on being on this website and contacting me! Thank you!
Thank you for your acknowledgement of my loss & I am so sorry for the loss of your brother. Although this group through Legacy connect is wonderful, I'm on Facebook, Grief the Unspoken & it is MUCH easier to post in those groups & they're closed so no one else can see what you post/comment except the members - it's more private. I'm in Loss of Parent group, but they have sibling, spouse, even suicide groups. Thank you again for letting me know & again, I am so deeply sorry for your loss...
Thank you, next month there will be a first born son of on of his men in his platoon that will share my son's name, that will be the 5th first born son from his buddies at Fort Hood,,it seams he left a good impression on quite a few men in 1st Cavalry, thanks again.
