My Friend, My Sister and My life saving Angel

by Lorraine
(Trevose, Pa)

My sister died 6 days ago of ovarian cancer that spread to her brain. She was first diagnosed in 2007, had surgery and was cancer free for 3 years. She was 5 yrs older then me but I felt like her twin, always connected by the hip. I feel like a part of me died with her. She was the strongest woman I know, the kindest and with a heart as wide as the ocean.

I have lost 2 other sisters before her, the first killed in a car accident, and the other to a illness. I guess the grief was not as bad but because they lived away from the family we didn't have that closeness. I can't understand the 2 types of loss.

This sister, helped me through really tough times of my life, she helped me raise my 2 daughters. She was always there when my life seemed worthless. She gave me back pride, even telling me no when I needed it. I miss her sooooo much. Being a caretaker kept me busy and I guess I never got time to think of losing her. I now miss her and I am now left behind with this big void in my life,

Living without her seems so unfair. She suffered so with the cancer. I feel like now I cannot take a step without her, my life is so empty, I have my faith that keeps me believing that this pain will get better, I know she is in a better place and that she is finally without pain. I believe that I loved her, but GOD loves her more. I pray that everybody hugs their family and takes a moment to appreciate family. ****Hilda, I Love you****

I know exactly how you feel. When I lost my younger brother and best friend I felt like my world had ended. He was the one person I could go to and tell my deepest secrets to. Unconditional love. It took me many years to learn to deal with life without him. It hopeless in the beginning but we do adjust. The pain and loneliness is overwhelming most days. All you can do is take little steps to recuperate. It's almost like you've had major surgery and your body needs to heal. Be good to yourself and don't get upset if you feel like you aren't making a lot of progress. It really is a work in progress. Many have called it a total roller coaster ride, up, down, up down. Sometimes you don't even see the downs coming.
God bless. Take care of yourself and lean on people around you who are supportive to you. I'm glad to see you have a strong faith. Your sister is with God and will be with you always.
