I Lost Someone Important to Me

Losing a family member and or close friend 4,303 People

    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...

    little brother in law. He was three when I first me him. The first thing he did was crawl into my lap and lay his head on my chest and say, " I really like you!" He was the kind of child that wrapped your heart around his finger. Full of fun, mischief and laughter. He was...

    I have already lost several people in my life,

    I hope I won't lose anymore, at least not for a long while. It just hurts beyond belief once they are really gone.

    Today would've been my big brother's 18th

    birthday. I never even got the chance to grow up with him.. My parents didn't tell me about it until I was older though, which made me feel like crap for days. Like I understand why they didn't tell me when I was younger because I maybe wouldn't understand. But when I think...

    Tonight my grandfather went to the lord.

    He wasn't my biological grandfather but he might as well have been. He taught me to shoot a gun, fish and how to be a man. RIP Grandpa.

    My girlfriend passed away yesterday.

    She was honestly the most amazing person ever and without her I would not be where I am in life right now. She helped me so much and was always there for me. I'm going to miss her so much!

    Four years ago today,

    I lost my uncle. I know for most people losing an uncle sucks but is not necessary life changing, for me on the other hand, it was a huge blow. I was very close to my uncle, we were both middle children and had very similar dispositions. My uncle was one of my best friends, he...

    Goodbye Sara

    Sara, This is the second time I write about you, the irony being the cruel difference of reasons. I found out today that you are gone and won’t be coming back this time. This cannot be real; this must be a joke, yet I have confirmed for certain that it is not. You should...

    I was in a relationship with her

    for 2 years. We had our ups and downs but overall she was a great person. I became aloof with her because I felt smothered as a result we parted ways. She was my best friend, I try not think of her because the thought of her almost brings me to tears. It hurts that she won't...

    I lost my best friend to suicide.

    He was the best thing in my life and we did everything together and I could always talk to him. It's been 15 years now and I still miss him terribly.

    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 dear friend just killed himself.

    He had been a nearly 30 year sober alcoholic but relapsed about 3 months ago. It tore through him like a tornado. In three months he lost his wife, his new house, the use of his legs in an accident, his small business, and yesterday his life. Be at peace my friend.

    I always wonder if she was scared when that gun turned on her. She wasn't scared of anything. She knew she wasn't coming back. She told all of us that it was her last day of work because her soon to be ex husband was coming into town. She knew she was going to be murdered. I'd...
