My sisters name is Tasha she was 23.My name is Sarah and I am 18. Tasha was the best big sister I could ask for. She was my best friend, my Mom (when she wasnt around), my sister, my other half, my ride or die and so much more. One horrible day that was taken away from me. The last time I had spoken to her was January 18,2012 (my birthday) I was getting ready to go out to eat so I was going to call her back. By the time I had gotten in that night it was late so I was going to call her later on that week. A horrible phone call made me miss my chance. Just 9 days later (January 27,2012) I got a painful phone call. The person said, "Sweetie your sister is dead. She committed suicide lastnight and shot herself in the head." After those words went in my ears I dropped to my knees and lost all hope I had. I couldn't believe what was happening. I am still in shock to this day and its almost been a year. I loved her so much more, and I still do. Like they say, "Her love is like the wind, you can't see it but you can feel it" I miss her so much. This has been one of the biggest obstacles that life has thrown my way and im still struggling through this. If anyone could offer advice that would be greatly appreciated, Thanks for listening.

He is the only one who can truly help you through this tragedy. The people here on earth simply don't have the wisdom and support you need. He is carrying me right now through my tragedy because I simply do not have the strength to stand on my own two feet.

Sarah I am so sorry for your loss of your sister Tasha to Suicide.
As I have mentioned before often on this site my nephew was 30yrs. when he threw himself in front of an express train 5 years ago to end his misery. We are all still trying to survive this. You are so young. I hope that you have supportive family and friends to help you through this. You would benefit from seeing a grief counsellor for support. This support is used often in cases of death by suicide as it is a very traumatic death and loss. Anyone who is struggling from loss should process using a grief counsellor for support.
I have 4 sisters and I couldn't bear to lose any one of them. My husband died 5 months ago from cancer and my sisters and their husbands are my strongest support. I am finding life difficult most days. You are young. Do everything you can to get the support you need in order to move forward better in grief. You will recover in TIME. You will go on to Live a happier Life. Keep HOPE Alive in your heart this will act as a steppingstone to help you move forward.

Hello Sarah
Our sadness was very difficult at reading your story, as we go through our lives a special bond is made between many of us to a family friend or a close relation..So many memories and special times, we too have lost the greatest part of our lives when we lost our wee lass Cheryl..It has been 4 years and the hurt seems to grow as certain times of year approach such as the sad day we lost her or birthdays and christmas..We still have no easy answers to coping but just carry on day to day,sometimes we cope at other times we feel physically unwell and heartbroken .We have never looked for support from outside as we know it is only our love for our wee lassie that makes it all so hard to cope with..So all we can say is we send our love and support along with our prayers to you and most of all your precious sister and friend.Like us you will survive but no one can say how difficult the road may be .All you can do is keep her memory alive and as you say she will always be young and beautifull
Mum Dad of Cheryl .... our story (One Life)
