I Lost Someone Important to Me

Losing a family member and or close friend 3,995 People

    When you lose someone,

    you try to remember the last time you saw them. And most of the time it's a blurry memory, because at that last time you had no idea it would be the last.

    I lost my dad November 31st last year.

    He had lung cancer which eventually spread to his brain and he was very ill because of it. anyway he had a shunt to relive pressure in his head which helped but he was still in hospital a month before he passed. All I can say is we didn't have the best Christmas that year and...

    I watched my sensei die in front of me.

    Our story is a little odd and untraditional but id say i met him by sheer fate. I was walking in the woods one day when i found him building a little fire to cook some hot dogs. He was homeless. I decided to help him move some wood. We got to talking and he told me that he was...

    I can hardly believe its been that long. 11 years since I heard your laugh, saw your smile, felt your touch. I had a dream about you that morning where you told me it was time for you to go. I wanted to come with you and you said I couldn't. Less than 8 hours later the...

    Is it that hard to just be there

    for me... If you're my friend, I'll try my hardest to make you happy and help you out. But some of the people I got closest to, didn't even care to ask how I was doing sometimes.. No instead, they just stop talking to you, like our friendship meant absolutely nothing to them. I...

    A good friend died this weekend.

    I'm in complete shock and I have no idea what to say to his friends and family. I'm in another country so I can't physically be with them to grieve.. I don't think it's really hit that its true anyway. He was only 21 and I can't even express how much of a genuine and funny guy...

    Yes, I have, more than a few

    but one in particular is the hardest.. He's my hero & always will be, he died serving his country along with his best friend. It's been over 4 years, but I still hear his voice, I see his smile when I hear our princess laughing. His baby girl talks to him in her dreams.

    It is so heartbreaking to just suddenly realize

    he's not here anymore. And even more when he's been gone for months without me knowing. We met on the internet, he was a very kind human being. He brought the bright side to my life when I thought I was falling apart. I loved him and he loved me, he called me his babygirl, we...
