Loss of my only sister
I lost my older sister in May 2014. I was at work when my mother called and said my sister was dead. I was so numb I just stayed on the phone in shock for what felt like an eternity while my Mom kept asking. "Hello? Hello? Did you hear what I said?" It was the moment my entire life changed. My sister and I talked just about every single day. She was a widow and her 10 year old son, my nephew, had lost his dad three years prior at age 7, only to lose his mom too at age 10. The anguish and sadness and grief and anger are sometimes hard to describe. I flew down to visit immediately to be with my family and make final arrangements. Having to hold my Mom's hand in the funeral home to go over paperwork as she wept at having lost her only daughter and explaining everything to my 10 year old nephew were the hardest things I've ever had to do. Right now, it's too fresh, too raw, and all I feel is so much pain. I love you sis. I miss you.
