I Lost Someone Important to Me

Losing a family member and or close friend 3,358 People

    Losing my grandad changed my whole family

    dynamic. Nothing has ever been the same since. It hurts me everytime I think about him. I wish it had been someone else that had been taken. It's not fair.

    People keep saying "It will get easier with

    time." I think that's a bunch of bullshit. It's been a month since you passed and every day hurts a little more than the last. I can't function. I feel empty. How am I supposed to live without you? I love you.

    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...

    asking me if could I talk, as he had something important to tell me. Naturally I told him it was fine, and he could tell me now, but he said it's not something I should hear when I'm at work. This worried me, and I first thought that our 17 year old family dog had died. He...
