    Georgie Dog Died. Posted October 8th, 2010 At 12:22am

    My dog was absolutely fine at lunchtime, and really excited about his walk in the sunshine. Tonight at 20.30 he died suddenly. I feel so shocked and sad, I can't take it in properly. He was 10 years old, and quite a character, well known in my neighbourhood, as he always carried...

    It was New Years Eve 1971,

    I was thirteen years old. My dad was a little tipsy by the time midnight arrived and he thought it would be a good idea to ring in the New Year by taking his gun outside and firing off a few shots. A few hours later my brother came home, feeling no pain himself, and I told him...

    Why Have I Always Been Alone?

    Well I haven't, in fact, I was never meant to be alone. I was born with an identical twin. Now I'm alone. She died before I could even grasp any memories of it, only the nightmares of death that have followed me my entire life. I grew up as an only child, then later an older...

    My Sister

    I lost my sister on December 22, 1988, three days before Christmas. Christmas has never been the same. I love and miss her. No one realized the depth of her pain and that it would take her to the place of wanting to take her life. She was 16 years older than me and left home...

    Yesterday was the culmination of my summer of

    loss. I lost my dog. I lost my relationship of two years. I am losing my grandfather. The only one I cared about in my family. I can't handle this.

    My mom passed away last year (January 2013).

    She was eighty-eight years old, which was very fitting for her to have lived in years, the same amount as there are keys on a piano; because her life was built around her love for playing the piano. When I was little, mom gave piano lessons in our home. I loved it, because all...
