    My dearest dad has passed away

    for five months. I just couldn't stop missing him. I often cry at night. Oh, How I want to hear his voice calling me again! He loved me so much. When I felt helpless, not knowing what to do and where to go, it was always him that gave me the direction, comforted me, encouraged...

    Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.Saying goodbye doesn't mean anything. It's the time we spent together that matters, not how we left it. when my grandpa died in front of me his last words were "i cant breath". it was hard on us all. he ust to call me his...

    My best friend growing up died over 2 years ago.

    I still find memories of him float up in my everyday life. I joined this group to see what is more common with grief. He was very young, died from drowning. I was devastated. I look forward to reading about the amazing lives that have left us, and how you cope, or even...

    Not just. It has been three months.

    This is the first time I've been able to mention it at all. Distance. Time. Makes it easier to live with. I try to keep busy, even staying active here so I do not think about him. Everything is hard now. Everything. Not 'hard to get out of bed' hard. 'Hard to take that next...

    Lost My Big Brother

    I guess the first thing I should confess is that he wasn't really my brother. He was my first cousin ... half-cousin at that (dad's half sister's son) ... but when his parents died he came to live with us and "became" my big brother.  He was six months older than me.  His...

    I've lost many people I love in my life, both family and friends. The pain never goes away you just learn to live with the emptiness their absence leaves in your heart. Some you can at least say they lived a long and good life...but for some that is just not the case. We lost...

    I had this friend for 2 years,

    then she started having sex and getting knocked up (she's 14 OML..) and so I kind of just told her she isn't a good influence on me and I don't want to get with the wrong crowd, but now I miss her a lot.

    Lost Him to the Sea.

    I loved him in that 6th grade, innocent way. His smile reminded me of the children I once ran the playground with. The boy who'd brush the dirt off my knee when I'd trip, even if his friends made fun of him. THAT was him. Even at 25, his presence made me kick at the tiny...

    Because of the last two weeks I've lost someone else that I love. I cannot believe how bad 2014 is. Every month brings a new death. I've never been so pessimistic against my future. I dare not challenge worse.

    I was shattered; emotionally torn, wiped out, and as hard of heart as you could get. Then I met Daniel. And within minutes, all that had melted away. It was the same for him. A uniting of souls, a shared passion. Against all odds I had fallen in love again. Under the WORST...

    I always remember the good times

    and the blessings brought to us by the ones we lose. It's ok to be sad about it too but be reminded that they are carried in our hearts and minds. Though they are not here physically they are still with us.
