A Kind and Gentle Soul

by Cathie

My brother passed away suddenly on 12/7/2011. He was 52-my baby brother. We spoke every day either by text or on the phone. He was all I had left of my family and I am devastated. He was due to fly to Texas on 12/24 to spend Christmas with my husband and I. He was a kind, gentle caring soul. I miss him terribly and find it is getting harder to cope. His cause of death is still unknown and may never be known. I feel numb, barely putting one foot in front of the other.

My big brother, Tim
by: Lisa

My brother passed away on May 6, 2012, he was in the hospital for about 5 weeks before he passed. I was planning on going up to see him (we lived 1200 miles apart) as soon as my school semester was finished, but I didn't make it, he died a few days before my finals started. I completed my finals with a heavy heart and didn't make it to his memorial service. I'm so heart sick, I cry every day.....

One of my sisters died in May of 2009, then another in May of 2010, my daughter had a triple bypass in April of 2011, then my dad died in January of 2012............Sometimes life just gives us too much to handle. I'm tired and showing signs of depression. I don't know how to move on and stop crying. This has never happened to me before.....

Me Too
by: Lee

Cathie, I know exactly how you feel. My wonderful sister Ruthie died on March 6. It was completely unexpected. I took her to urgent care to get help for her breathing after a bout with the flu bug. Long story short, I did not bring her home--doctors said she had heart failure from the stress of the breathing tube.
I need to let you know that you are not alone. I know that, so far, I simply do not want to be here on earth. I just want out. The pain is constant.
Please know that you are not alone.

All Alone Too
by: Sara in Texas

I am so sorry for your loss. I am 60 and I have lost all of family, father,mother, brohers and sisters. In June I lost my only son. It does not feel good to know that every blood relative you have is gone. It IS a very lonely feeling. God Bless you and comfort you in your time of pain, I wish I could make it better for you.

Your kind and gentle soul
by: Laura

My husband, also, 52, passed away on January 3, 2012. His death was tragic and unexpected. I found him one week ago today and really can't see the future without him. He was a kind and gentle soul, also. Too good for this world.

I will pray for you. You will get through. Just put one foot of the other. Several of my closest friends and family have told me to get through one minute at a time. We both will feel what we feel until we don't.
