Beautiful. </3


She technically wasn't my sister. But in the family we were raised in all of our cousins were raised as close as siblings. From the moment I can remember I've been with her. I'm ten months older than her and she was only 13 when she died. I'm scared for what next month will bring as her birthday is then. It all seems like a dream to me. We shared everything. Yeah we fought like sisters but they just brought us closer. We got everything done together and there was no sign to anything being wrong. The morning I found out I had just woken up to get ready for school. My mom gets a call and jumps up panicking and runs to make my dad get the car started. Me and my brother had no idea for about another hour until her mother and little sister came over. I will never forget all the great times we had and I miss her dearly. She meant the world to me and I am still trying to figure out how to cope without her. I love you Valval. RIP

Briana I am sorry for your loss of your cousin/sister Valerie. Death is the worst experience ever in life. We wonder how we will cope with the unbearable pain of our loss. A human life with a personality so unique it could not be duplicated. The daily sharing of life and experiences. The love and the fighting is all part of life but now gone forever. Not seeing that person again and never exchanging conversation and sharing meals. Going shopping together. Just some of the simple things in life that make up a family.
Briana all you can do is let grief do its work taking one day at a time. Don't look too far ahead. Keep a journal and write out all your feelings and even letter's to Briana telling her how her death has affected you and the family. Giving expression this way will help your grief and you will have these memories forever.
My husband died 14 months ago. Just 16 days before his 66th Birthday. As a family we went to the graveside and put up messages, balloons, and flowers and made it an honourable day to celebrate the life of such a beautiful person inside and out and how he was so precious to everyone that his death has broken each one of us to the core. His 2nd birthday of his passing was celebrated 3 weeks ago. We put up a balloon for Father's day and also flower baskets. It was a sad but honourable day to mark the remembrance of such a precious man who is sadly missed.
Briana you will come through this grief in time. Healing from our loss is a very slow process. Sadly we will keep losing people from our lives. Death Hurts. Get as much support from family and friends as you can to help make the grief journey a little smoother.
