My brother and I were very close, afterall, we were only 18 months apart. I was the older of us two (he was my only sibling). Even though I looked out for him, he looked out for me - he protected me - from everything.
In May 2004, our father (single father who raised us) passed away suddenly from a heart attack about a week after a graduated from college. The same day, 2 years later, in 2006, my brother was in a motorcycle accident and passed away.
He was 22. He was my best friend, and we had just gotten an apartment together about 6 weeks before he died. I was really broken after he passed. I never really talked to anyone about my loss. I had to be strong for the family.
Now, it's almost 7 years later, and I can't stop thinking of him. I miss him so much. What brought me here, is that I was watching a movie where the brother and sister were close - any movie, tv show....anything where I see a brother and sister having a close relationship - I break down in tears. It's been 7 years - is this normal?
I wish I could go back and change things. I miss him SO MUCH!
