I Have Experienced Loss

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 242 People

    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...

    Forty-four years ago the youngest of my three

    brothers committed suicide, he was twenty years old, and I was thirteen. He would have been sixty-four years old today, so I wanted to write down some of my memories of him in honor of his birthday. He was a real turd; I remember when Mountain Dew first came on the market, I...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Many times. Inevitable part of life,

    sadly. Either friends you grow up with move away. Or family members pass away. And whilst the pain of loss does lessen over time. They all leave a sadness.
