Brother Gone, Sister soon...

by LindsayZ

My older brother Dave committed suicide almost 2 years ago. He would be 40 this year. My older sister Jeanette is on her last days...she has been battling cancer for 8-9 years now. She will be 43 in January. I am so sad. My heart aches for them so much and especially my father. They have all had a hard life, and I can't bear all of this tragic pain. I will endure, but it so hard to be so strong and just deal with all of it. I am the baby sister who is now holding together the family. WTF...

My dear one, only when we have gone through what you are, do we fully understand and I do. I grew
up with wonderful parents, and two brothers. Now
they are all gone. I have kids and grand kids,
but there's an emptiness always there, hurting.
My 38 year old brother went quickly with a heart attack. My mom went 6 days from the time we found she was ill. She had cancer. My Dad was ill with cancer for 23 months. It's a pain like no other. And last July, my baby brother, 6 years younger than me, passed away with brain cancer. I prayed to die, then I prayed for
strength. Bless your heart, I will pray especially for God to hold you in his arms and
give you what you need.

So sorry that you have to go through so much pain, I have just lost my sister she was 50 and it has crossed my mind that I too might be facing death sooner than I think as my parents are in their late 70s.

There is no way we can prepare for this..but we must believe that if we believe in Jesus there is eternal life and we are all going to die and it's ok he will be there on the other side, death is not a terrible thing a part of life and a graduation..

My friend, please accept my love and prayers and sympathy. I am so sorry.
I lost my parents and both my brothers. I'll live on but the pain will never leave.
I can relate to what you're feeling. You will walk that lonely path of grief for a while. Do it
your way, take your time. We that have been there, know what it's like. May God bless you
and meet your needs and You know we will be here for you. I wish for you comfort.
