My best friend, my brother was killed in car accident

by Gina

I lost my beloved brother Mike in 2004 he was 31. He was killed in a single car roll over just minutes from his house. When I got the call , my life was changed forever. Everyone does grieve differently. I suffered a emotional breakdown and was unable to work for about a year. Just take each day at a time and make yourself happy, doing whatever it takes. Now my brother shows me his presence when I see 11:11 almost everyday now, since 2006 after my moms stoke. I wish everyone peace who has been down this path and hope. Take care all.

Hi Gina,

As you can see, my name is Gail.
First of all, I want to say how sorry I am for you at the loss of your brother.

I am a mother of 2 children. A son 26 and a daughter who's birthday was in March and she would have been 22. She was killed in a car crash by a drunk driver on January 14th. My story is written here called "My Life Is Different Now".

My son and her were also best friends. We are 3 months into this and there are no words to describe the rollar coaster ride it takes you on. My heart is sad for you as I know my son misses my daughter so much too. As you said, everyone grieves differently. I just take it a day at a time and let the waves roll in as they may. It's totally amazing that we survive this at all. What I can tell you is to try and be strong, live life as best you can and be patient with yourself. I am going to a Psychologist and if nothing else, it is helping me stay grounded to know that what I'm going through and the different phases that this brings is normal. I do wish that my son would see someone. He claims he doesn't need it but I guess only he knows what he needs. Perhaps in time he will see differently.

They say, and I believe that everything happens for a reason. This one is sure a test and life can be crazy. I'm glad to know that you still feel his presence. I also know that not only my daughter is here but also my grandmother.

Have you ever considered contacting a medium. I have had one session and I am having another one today. I believe the one today is more gifted than the first one. We will see. If you are interested, you can email me at I can give you my opinion of the session, her website and contact information if you wish. She is here in Colorado and does phone sessions. It will help.......

Take Care and know that you are not alone. He is in a wonderful place and still with you.
