Loss from multiple deaths...

Welcome to the "Multiple Losses" page. This is a special place for those who have lost more than one loved one in a relatively short period of time. You have an unusually heavy burden to carry, trying to overcome grief caused by multiple losses. You may also feel a special kind of anger and frustration with the "unfairness" of it all. It is unfair, and our heart goes out to you.

You may feel overwhelmed, not know how to even start dealing with your bereavements. Our advice to you is don't even try. Don't "deal with it". Just endure it and get by one day at a time. We know that in time, you will overcome this tragedy and come back to life without your loved ones.
