    My best friend was killed in Afghanistan

    when his helicopter was shot down my a rocket. For years I struggled with my loss, and I continue to struggle with it to this day. However, I am extremely thankful to have known such an incredible human being. I don't know why God took him from us so early, but his legacy lives...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...
