They are all gone

by Carmen

I lost my mom a little over 7 years ago in a vehicle accident involving a deer, she was killed instantly. She was my best friend, my confidant, my hero, my inspiration. I am still in a lot of pain from her death. After mom's death it was my older brother and my dad. In July of 2011 my brother was found dead in his home. Turns out he had an infection in his heart, but told us he was doing okay and getting better. Then December 26, 2011, my dad died lost his battle with cancer. At first, I thought I was okay with my dad's loss, getting to say goodbye to him and all and knowing his is not suffering anymore, but I feel so alone. In reality I am not. I am blessed to have a wonderful husband and four wonderful children. I will stop for now, I am at a loss of words.

Too much
by: Wendy

Oh my dear Carmen,

To have lost so many people in so short a time has to be devastating. Thank God you have your husband and your children. I know they say God doesn't give us more than we can handle, but I gotta say that sounds like a bit too much. Just know that although many of us have had losses, and very few are as multiple and close to you as yours, we are all here for you whenever you need us.

Your mother and brothers' deaths must have been devastating. Not to belittle losing your father but at least you had a chance to say goodbye. You have a long road ahead and I hope you'll lean on family and friends. You will need all the support you can get.

Come to this sight often....we are always here. We are all on the same journey, some worse than others but still the same.

I lost my husband suddenly and traumatically 6 months ago, and I know that healing is a long way away. We will never forget them and our lives are forever changed.

One breath, one step, one day at a time.
