My heritage gone in 8 years

by Kathy

My mother died in 2004, my only sibling/sister in 2008 and my father in 2012. I am the last in my line at 48 years old and have not yet anyone of my age who has gone through such serial losses over such a short period of time. Wanting to share. K x

Going down the same road
by: Anonymous

My heritage is also gone, and I continue to grieve. I lost my sister suddenly last April (my only sibling), then I lost both parents in August, just 13 days apart. A week after my father's funeral, I broke my ankle. My daughter was married 4 weeks later. I was on crutches and there, but I hardly remember it. I'm left with 2 estates to settle through probate, the family farm and 150 year old house built by my great-grandfather and lived in by no one other than my family. All this in another state than where I live. Overwhelming! I'm muddling through it all, one day, one week, one month at a time. It's hard.

Nancy and your "love prints"
by: rayolife

WOW you just shared fabulous words of wisdom and inspired me with your pour out "love prints" from the person who has passed! I lost my beloved son, David, 28, almost 4 years ago in a highway accident. He had just completed 4 years of active service in the Army 82nd Airborne, serving a tour of duty in Irag for 6 months , and a 15 month deployment to Afghanistan. He had joined the Army Reseves for another 4 years of service, and had already been told he would return to Afghnistan in 2009. David was on leave, for just a few weeks, when he was hit head on by a DUI repeat offender, driving without a license, driving a commercial truck without a license, proper registration, etc, etc, etc. The driver only served 8 days in jail, the trucking company only fined $30.00!!!!! He was driving to meet his fiancee and then leave for a week's vacation with his friends, which he had planned and paid for while serving in Afghanistan. He said this was his reward for his sacrifice to his country. David had registered to finish his degree in biology, and was training to be a physician's assistant. David was one of those "one-in-a-million" special people. God takes the very best. Everyone, everywhere loved him and his humble servant's heart. He was my SUNSHINE! His older brother Jay, a drug addict, has never accepted this horrible tragedy, and takes it out on me. I only hope to survive life with his wretched brother who refuses help, and continues to abuse me verbally, emotionally, and psychologically. Thanks for you words of wisdom and inspiration. I have been and will continue to spread David's "love prints" . There is a dagger in my heart, and a huge hole in my chest and abdominal cavity where he was ripped away from me. My life will never be the same.

Hi, I am suffering the loss of my mother, she passed feb 23, 2012, while I am surrounded by family, my kids, my uncles, cousins, it does not help feeling lost and alone, I was with 30 family members yesterday, still felt alone. You probably need grief counseling, as I see you are trying just by being on here. I wrote I want my mom back right now, read my post, the end may help you some, I hope so, you have been hit hard by 3 losses in a row. Cry all you want and seek out Jesus. 2 days ago I wouldnt be saying this to anyone. I met some young man at a park and he told me its ok to grieve, and to live to meet Jesus, I swear he helped me, last week I thought I was going insane. I went outside in the dark and cried and cried, cuz I didn't want anyone to see me cry so much. Your not alone my friend

Pour out to others
by: Nancy

They have not left you - they have left "love prints" all over you. The "love prints" are there for you to share to those all around you. They are the memories of the ones who have passed one. The simple things. The crafts, the things the brought laughter, joy, music, creativity, the uniqueness of each of individual are so very much a part of who you are - they are there so you can put "love prints" on others in your world - in memory of them. So go out into the world and pour out into others what others have poured into you. Have a great day!

Lonely Feeling
by: Anonymous

Hi, my name is Sara and I am 59and like you i have lost my entire nuclear family. My Dad died in 67 I was 15. Then my other at 18. Then several tears later I lost my oldest sister. then a brother at the age of 48. then another brother 2 years later, and then another sister 2 iears later. It was painful and I felt very alone but the one that has affected me the most was the loss of my only child my son. Yes. I'm married and I have ny husbands family but I sure could have used one of my of my own. Thar was hard not having any family to be by me for support. Anyway I won't say I know how you feel but I certainly understand where you are coming from. Put your trust in the lord and know with conviction that you will see them again.Good luck and God be with you...
