3 Losses - 1 year

by Hannah

March - I lost my family friend (who was basically like an aunt to me).
May - my grandfather passed away two days before graduating college. This meant my dad was not able to make it to my graduation.
September - my other grandfather passed away.
November - things are not looking good for my family's beloved cat. I believe this is the cherry on top. I just overheard my dad crying, "talking" to my cat (who is at the vet), and begin praying.

It feels like too much in one year. I have withheld from calling it "unfair," because death happens to everyone. Like I said, the whole beloved cat situation is just the cherry on top and now I am slowly becoming more upset and angry. It does not help that my "lifelong" friends have not said "I'm sorry for your loss," for any of the deaths. They ignore it and begin talking about themselves and their petty-in-comparison problems. They do know how to cope with death; they have helped each other out before. I'm a little confused why I'm expected just to "get over it."

My mom and dad do not deserve such an awful year. They lost both their fathers. Their siblings have been hurtful and deceitful. It leaves my mom and dad cleaning up the mess. Now, one of the few things that could bring a smile and laughter to their face (the cat) is close to death.

We just want things to finally look up.
