Missing my wonderful brother Michael James Bullion

by Sheri Bullion Enfield
(Salisbury Md. )

My brother was in a car accident and broke his hip this was the start of the long journey to telling this story. He was in need of a liver transplant. we had endured kidney cancer and won that battle. A spot on his lungs and we survived this also. He was in Johns Hopkins waiting for a new liver and he started to bleed they could not find it with a cat scan. 2 days later they went down his throat and found the bleed, this could not be stopped only slowed and we received the call that he might not make it through the night. I got up with his daughter and my son and we started our drive there half way we got a call from my mom he only had 10 or 15 minutes. Thank god I asked mom to put the phone to his ear so we could all tell him we loved him. We did not make it in time. We still went to the hospital and said our goodbyes and helped my parents through this.the pain I feel sometimes is more than I can handle this is so fresh because he passed on 1-11-13 I have to remember to always thank god for all the little miracles we received up till that point. He was a wonderful brother and I will always love him. He was the only sibling that I had so there is nobody else to share this pain with so I turned to these pages to help me deal with the pain. I can't talk to my parents they have there own pain and I have to be strong for them. Thank you for letting me share my story he was 47 when he passed. way to young and he was so tired and in pain now he is not and I will see him again some day I never knew a pain like this ever.

love you
by: Michaels sister

I love you so much and wish you were here so I could call or stop by for a visit. Just to be able to hear your voice again. I know that I will one day. and I know that we are connected by our hearts and soul. I feel joy because I know it is your joy I feel. I am so thankful for the talks we had. for the love we shared with one another. I am thankful for the big brother that god had blessed me with. You are missed and loved every day and will be until I take my last breathe and join you in heaven. You were and always will be the best brother in the world. Just know I am thinking of you today and every day and I miss you with all my heart and soul.

I'm sorry Sheri
by: A Kindred Soul

Dearest Sheri,

I am deeply sorry for your loss, but I know that your brother, James must have adored and cherished the wonderful sister you were to him. I am certain that he's watching over you and wants nothing more than seeing you happy. I lost my brother who was very close to me 4 days after you lost yours and believe me I know what's it's like to lose someone you're the closest to. My brother was 35 and full of life. We had so many plans for the future and it's all gone; however, I am so dedicated to do whatever we had planned for and will fulfill all our goals and dreams one by one. I believe this is going to give me comfort and makes him look at he and smile.

I will be thinking about you and praying for strength.

Sheri You are right there is no pain like this. Losing a loved one HURTS SO BAD. I am sorry for your loss of your brother at such a young age. You don't have to be strong for your parents. You need to deal with your own grief and just be supportive to your parents. If you are all struggling try and get some grief counselling. This support is such a benefit and will help you all cope with the pain and sorrow. I lost my husband of 44yrs. almost 10 months ago and I know how bad the pain is and how difficult life is to go on each day. You are not alone. I have always had to be the strong one in the family and carry everyone's load and this is not possible. We each have our own boundaries and we need to help each other in a structured way.

Missing My Husband
by: Anonymous

We also endured months and months of waiting for a transplant that never came. It's such an emotional roller coaster ride. It's draining on the patient and the family. I like the way you put it...God's miracles that kept my husband alive as long as he was here. We almost lost him 10 different times. He kept bouncing back because he fought so hard to stay with us. Finally....his body just couldn't take it any longer. None of us were ready to let him go and his absence is felt every day. We miss him so.
We are to thank God for the time we had them. The problem is we wanted them for just a little longer.
I want to send hugs your way. The pain does get better although it never fully goes away. We loved so deeply so the pain is intense.
God bless you.
