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!!
I know elyse, the world should've stopped spinning when my brother Doug left!Holidays only increase the pain! Diamond, I know the feeling! One day the pain isn't as deep and I think I've got a handle on it then a couple days later I can't bring myself to talk to his wife or daughter! Doug's wife is harder, we both cry Try and have a blessed Christmas because they're waiting for us and time moves very quickly in their dimension, so for them it'll be like not very much time has passed.Dear Lord. Please comfort us all, especially during your season. On Jesus' name, Amen.
