My brother, John --- I miss you so much

(Willis, Virginia)

John passed away on December 22, 2013. We were getting ready to meet for Christmas. He passed away while on his way home of a heart attack. He was 54 years old.
I have been in shock since this happened -- I can't wrap my head around this -- much less accept it in my heart.

Today is John's first birthday in Heaven -- 55 years old --

I can't believe you are not here for me to call and sing happy birthday -- you, Tom and I have done this all our lives -- my heart literally hurts because I can't talk to you, laugh with you and receive those big bear hugs -- I miss our Sunday morning phone calls -- we would laugh and talk like we were when we were kids growing up -- I would bring you up to date on local news -- you would tell me what to tell Dot and Janice and Carlton -- I miss you John -- sometimes I think I won't stop is still a shock to me that you are not here -- I love you and I will miss you forever...... Happy Birthday in Heaven my precious brother and friend -- your sister Lynn

My brother, John --- I miss you so much
by: Doreen UK

Lynn what a lovely tribute to your brother John. I am so sorry for your loss of a young brother. When we have a strong bond and family interaction with a loved one, it can be the hardest loss to bear. I miss my husband, having lost him to cancer 2yrs. ago. I find the days more lonely. I can't get my head around the emptiness of him not being here. I have to fix up the house and he is not here to help me. It is such a heavy burden to bear.
Taking one day at a time does help, but we rise each day and often nothing changes. Our Grief is still there. We want to reach out to touch and talk to our loved one and they are not there. It is very hard for the human mind and emotions to feel normal again. May the days ahead get easier for you.
