    This will be my family's first Thanksgiving

    since the death of my older brother. It is sad to see someone die from drug abuse, more than that it hurts to the very soul. When he went to the Army he was my hero but when he came back he had changed into a monster. On a lighter side he was the family comedian. We always...

    Today at 2 am, my cousin

    who is like a sister to me, died of sickness. It hurts so bad that I had been too busy at work so I did not get the chance to visit her when she was still alive. Our family is still shocked over this tragedy since we do not really understand yet how leg pain can make her...

    We all have. I liked to think

    as each and every person that I'd lost in my life as a 'purposeful' loss - one that had meaning, one that was determined by fate and had pushed me forward in some way when I was able to see the big picture. Every person was a lesson learned, or a doorway to another part of...

    For anyone who had a rough time growing up I'm

    sure you'll understand when I say you always have those people who made you feel safe. I had 2, my grandmother who passed over 10 years ago and an uncle who passed last night. I always wished he was my dad and he was an inspiration and well loved and respected by everyone who...

    My Mom's Death I remember it clearly

    as though it happened yesterday. She was an amazing woman. Very independent yet not. My dad really held her together. I remember the night that he died. The fastest 24 hours of my life. And when we took her home, I cannot recall her ever crying so loud for so long. It broke my...

    It finally happened to me.

    My aunt passed last year and then my uncle a few months later (this year). It hurt. I would like to not do that again.

    I know deep down inside your never coming back

    but even so the hope you might one day return keeps me going on. I can't wait to see you again even if it is only in my dreams.

    Our Crazy Angel

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    but I lost my brother, he died while hiking, the worst part was he was really far away from our family and I hadn't gotten to see him for a year until I saw him on the news I honestly have thought about being with him so many times, but then I remember he wouldn't want me to do...

    that we were once part of each other's life. Always together. Laughing. Dreaming. Now we are nothing but strangers. I wonder if you still think about me. I try not to think about you. I've tried to forget. I succeed almost every day, but sometimes I fail. Sometimes I think too...
