My sister died 17 years ago. Literally 5 months before I was born. She was 11 years old and disabled. I know very little about her....but it makes me so sad to think about her and how I never met her. I bet she was the sweetest. I bet I would look up to her. I bet she would be one of the closest people to me. I miss her even though I don't know her. It would have been better if I would have died as a baby, not her with a great past creating a path to a successful future. I sometimes wonder if my parents believe the same thing. She was too young to die. How can I miss her without knowing her?
Most everyone on here is grieving with an actual well known sibling. How do you handle grief for someone who never existed to you?
Wouldnt that be like crying for the death of George Washington? I know him just as well as I know my sister.
