Shocked, Saddened and Speechless!

Dear Shari,

Having seen this blog by sheer accident, only just joining this today I cannot digest what I have just read! It shocks me into the surreal. My heart and soul are with you as I remember how much your whole life was devoted to Howie.

   We both remember him as a happy baby and the day he received his first firetruck. How he loved to play baseball and looked so proud in his uniform outfit. Howie was a gift from God. He was the the best and finest humored child that…

I finally got my dream

My younger sister had dreams of my dad but I still hadn't. I was starting to get upset but then I realized that the only reason why I hadn't dreamt of my dad was that I was not ready. Until this month, I had a rough time during the holidays . New Years was hard , but I was trying to be strong for my mom. I talked to her about how I think that my dad would want us to look forward to a new year of beginnings and that didn't mean that we couldn't miss him. 2 days later I dreamt of my dad. I was at… Continue

Missing my Tazz

I'm sitting here on my couch feeling so alone. It has been raining all day. My man Joe has been weighing very heavy on my mind today. Tazz was his nickname. He had a custom Harley called Tazz with a pic of the character on his bike. He also had a Road King that we used to love to take out for a ride. I'm grateful that we had a chance to go for a ride one week before he died. We took the Harley to his sons wedding reception. It was a little cold. I wrapped myself tight around him. He was a very… Continue

Writing While Dying… Words of Advice from Moms Who Don’t Make It

During my siblings’ annual New Year’s Eve celebration in Bluffton, S.C. several years ago, my brother, Mike, pulled out a tattered, red spiral notebook he had discovered in a box. The distinctive handwriting was unmistakable – our mother’s script, written in a sort of back-slanted, left-handed style unlike any other. The pages were filled with her thoughts, life lessons and musings written about a year before she died at age 45.


My sister Wendy took the notebook…

In Memory of my Brother 2011


January 12th, 2006

We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name. In

life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts

to lose you, you did not go alone; for part of us went with you the day

God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still

our guide, and though we…

Losing my brother

Thankyou to those who have lost loved ones and shared their feelings. I thought I was going mad before I discovered this website - to read how other people feel when they have lost a sibling has enabled me to forgive myself for feeling the way I do. Since 19th Oct 2010, I have dreaded each day, cried, raged, been paralyzed and lethargic and felt guilty for not 'pulling my self together'. Few have understood the immense pain that has followed the death of my precious big…

Where Are You?

Has anybody wondered what happens after death. I am hindu so in my religion there is reincarnation and if you have paid & collected all the debts then you go to the final stage where there is no more life cycle processes anymore. Now my questions are:

If this is just one cycle and his soul has left this life. Would my being miserable and sad keep on pulling him back?

Am I doing the right thing by pulling him back instead of letting him move forward?

The relationship… Continue

Lilyanna Tommi and her Grandpa


It is always such a relief when the holidays are over.  I really would love to ignore the holidays and skip the tree and the presents, but my kids would not appreciate that and it would not be fair to them so we have decided to have a tree that honors their dad.  We have basic lights and balls and the only real ornament is a remembrance ornament of Tom.  The…

90ft Wave

I spent New Years Eve with my 3 grown sons and their families. Nothing flash, just sitting around the dinner table chatting, laughing and reminiscing. We saw the New Year in, standing in the frontyard, watching the fireworks around the neigbourhood. It was a good night, and on arriving home, I was thankful for making it through. But, the next 3 or 4 days that followed were exceptionly bad. I didn't feel it coming, it just hit me like a 90ft wave. I crashed, and I crashed heavily. I couldn't…

My first child was born on March 26, 1989.  She was a beautiful 8 lb. 2 oz. 22 inch long baby girl.  We named her Autumn Marie.  Shortly after birth a lump was noticed on her lower back and she was diagnosed with having a tethered spinal cord.  At three months she had surgery to correct this birth defect.  Autumn continued growing and was a perfect and happy baby.  She did fine until she turned seven and started having some issues, it was discovered that her spinal cord reattached to scar…

Empathize, don’t minimize loss

It happens. Seeking solace, you call a trusted friend or loved one and share some sadness; a family member’s diagnosis or a colleague’s death. But instead of consolation, you’re told a story of greater loss, even more disturbing than the one you’ve shared.  You’d hoped for comfort but the conversation leaves you frustrated and feeling…
