I agree. Even there is no response, the sharing is so important. I know how it is to just cry and cry when I think of my brother. I loved him so much. We have to take care of ourselves. My mother used to say that grieving never stops. It just gets less intense over the years. Well, I am inclined to agree with her.

Hi Elyse:

This happens to me too when I discuss my sister Lisa.  I usually start crying-so much is still so raw.  I too love this site and even if people don't respond it still is a place to share.  Take care and God Bless.

I went to a new bereavement group last night and I couldn't speak beyond saying I lost my brother in a drowning.At times I feel numb,I want to say something,but I guess I just can't talk in front of alot of people.Maybe in time that will change,but I think talking about your loss helps,it releases things on your mind.Which on here is helpful as well,though you may not receive a response,it's an outlet for your thoughts.So Thank you Legacy for providing us a place we can come together and share with each other.

When I think of my life without my brother,I often think of what's the purpose.The heartache you leave behind can last a lifetime.I know because I have that heartache.I MISS MY BROTHER ‼

Losing people has changed me forever! My Grandma-who raised me, my daughter, my brother, my Mom, my best friend, and too many others!!! I asked God to give me all of Candace's problems but I never thought it would include her. I think God let Candace die instead of one of her girls. I just don't understand but when I cross-over it will all be perfectly clear.  Lord, Bless all of us here, Amen.

Melinda, the grieving process has no expiration date. I lost my mother on 10/18/1999 and there is not a day that does not go by that I do not think of her. After her passing, I conducted a "Coping With The Loss of a Loved One" roundtable and people of different walks of life attended. It really help me to understand that it s okay to cry and think about your loved one; knowing they are no longer suffering. Also, I learned how to be selfless and not selfish.

You are so welcome. No I am Janelle from Cleveland, Ohio. Honestly, I lived in Astoria, NY for the past 5 years. Prior to that, I lived in Harlem, NY for 3 years and I lived in Cleveland, Ohio for all but, 8 years of my life. I have never been to California.

I feel like I'm on a ship that's sinking. He left 9/22/14. I think I should be better than this.  It's unbelievable, so wrong. It makes me think, where is God in all this? I need to stay strong. He's right (think positive) here with me and wishes I could understand why it needed to go this way. Lord keep me strong, Candace is with him, they're ok.

I am sorry for the loss of your lil' brother too (what happened to him too).
