I lost my brother to leukemia April 13, 2020 and I still can't fully accept it.
Miss/LOVE you Doug!!
I agree with you Mark. There are times I can remember my sister with a smile on my face, and times where I cry just hearing her name. Our family is going through turmoil right now, and we need her wisdom to get through it.
I have often heard grief described as waves. We go through periods where it is just a light ripple and others where we feel we are on a roller coaster. Even after a long period of time we can experience some very strong feelings. The key is, "just ride the waves". It also appears that you have had a number of significant deaths that will always complicate things.
I lost my only sister 24 years ago. It seems like she never existed. No one talks about her. My mother is gone so I have no one to talk about her with. I miss her. She was my rock when we lost out son. She died a few short months after our son was kill. It almost did me in. I had so many losses that year. My cousin had a still born birth the same month my son was killed. My father died before our son and then my sister. I don't know why I am having such a hard time after so many years. I love my sister and miss her dearly.
I know how you feel, Elyse. I lost my lost brother with lung cancer in October, 2008. I miss him so much. Most of the family don't talk about him and when I do, I get the feeling no one wants to listen. I may be a lot sensitive, but I miss him so much. I am so grateful for Legacy. You can say how you feel without judgement. Family can be judgemental as well as others. Take care of yourself and treat yourself with kindness.
I also wonder too and questioning myself that no one was there to save my brother.A few yrs ago,my brother saved someone in a pool from drowning,yet when he was ,though not in a pool but the lake,no one was there.I have so much guilt ,I myself couldn't save my brother.How lonely life is without my brother.No other siblings for support.
I miss you every single day My Dougie! I feel so bad for your wife and daughter!! You're such a good, honest and funny man, As a Respiratory Therapist you saved lives. WHY couldn't the doctor's save yours?! Only God knows and I'll find out when He reunites us. !!/13/58-9/22/14 I'm glad Candace. Nick, Joe, Grandma's Grandpa and Mom were their to greet you.
Diamond, In my Bible I have those verses highlited. Did you mention them before? Or maybe someone from the "loss of a child" site mentioned those verses because I lost my 30 yr old only child, CANDACE RAE WATSON on April 9th, 2010 then My Dougie on September 22, 2014 from PHT!!
