    I Lost My Older Bro

    I lost my older brother.  One day I was at my friends house playing and my parents suddenly rushed over to tell me my brother had fallen down a mountain and was dead.  It's been almost eight years since he passed away and I still think about it almost every day. He was the only...

    First was my maternal grandfather

    who had been a huge part of my life, then my teacher and friend, someone that had a huge impact on who I am now, and more recently, my good friend's fiancé who had been very close to my heart. I feel them constantly, miss them every single day.

    You never realize how important somebody is

    or the impact they made on your life until they're gone. Today I lost one of my former coworkers who I wasn't that close with but the time we had together I realized now that he had a great impact on who I am as a person today. I first met him when I started my first nursing...

    What Hurts As Much As Losing Someone To Death....

    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 met this woman last year.

    It was at work. Although I wasn't interested in pursuing romance, I instantly became infatuated with her. I convinced myself that it was just a simple crush, but I would learn that it was much more. I didn't want to let on that I was in any way interested in her. I had my...

    and I am still in shock. She was just here, then she wasn't. It saddens my heart to know we can go at any minute. We need to be more supportive and loving with others, because we don't know when they'll be gone. RIP Hunny

    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.
