My Sister's Death

by Tracey
(Houston, Texas)

I lost my younger sister a month ago on July 22, 2014. She was 43 years old and her death was unexpected. I lost my husband in 2005 and his death was not unexpected. He had been sick for about 8 months. I have to say that losing my sister has been the worst thing I have ever experienced, even more so than my husband. I don't know if this was because it was unexpected or because she is my blood, my DNA, the person I have been with for 43 years. Another very difficult thing is that we have no idea what happened. She literally went to sleep and never woke up the next morning. She had a lot of health problems but nothing anyone ever considered life threatening. I can't seem to move on with my life and I still think about it every minute of every day. Some days are ok and some days, it feels like it just happened. To be here knowing that I'm not alone helps but it's a horrible club to be a part of. I miss her very much and love her very much. I don't think I'll ever be the same again. I am a daughter, a mother, a girlfriend, a friend and a family member but I'll never be a sister again. I am seeing a grief therapist but so far, I don't feel like I am making any progress. Bless all of you for your loss. I will keep everyone in my prayers.
