    Need Advice How To Deal With My Deceased Brother's Wife.

    My brother died in Feb of this year. This has been the most tragic thing to happen to my family. My sister-in-law has since pushed my mother away (after telling us she wanted to remain in our lives). She didn't even call/text my mom on my brother's birthday. I have tried to...

    I always somehow find myself thinking of you.

    I wonder how things would be different if you were still here. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss you. I catch myself dialing your number sometimes like you will actually answer. They say it gets easier. It's been 4 years and it hasn't gotten any easier, it's...
