I Am a Big Sister and a Younger Sister-now Only Have One Left

  Within the last two years my family changed dramatically.  MY BROTHER WHOM i loved the most  of my family passed away at 48 fron lung and bone cancer at the sme time our mother was sick with pancreatic cancer and I tried to take care of her for six years.  So now it's just my older sister  and myself left.  It's been less then a year since we lost our wonderful fun mom-the only stable thing we ever had it our lives because our father hasn't been around for years.  My baby brother was always sweet and had a great laugh and gigantic heart.  He considered me his little sister and tolerated alot from us no one should but we were as close atwo peas in a pod.  Sharing everything that  mattered in life.  His death broke me and my mothers heart into a million tiny pieces.  My mother never recovered.  My sister and I have become very close now.  Have learned much from these experiences.  Some good and some bad. But always family is the most importatnt no matter how frustrated we  become or angry,family's what matters most/

Im sure all you have gone through makes you appreciate the time you have with your loved ones and friends.

I am so sorry to read this. Life is so unfair. We just need to hold on to the little strength that we have.

Sorry for your losses and keep on going we have to and try and look at the great things life still has to offer. I myself lost my wife this past year and I know it is difficult but family and friends keep me going and this new website has helped me tremendously. I love living two lives. One as the man and the other as me inner girl

We all make our way through this life as best we can.

Family is the basic unit of life for us. When we can't go to anyone else for help, there is always family. I am the youngest of 5 childrem, (old farts now, *all but me*). One has passed, and the rest of us are very close. I have three sisters. My brother has died. I tell my sisters that I can be as mean to them as I want, because I have 3 of them, but they better be nice to me because I am the only brother they have left. Then they tell me a few things I won't type here. I don't want to hurt your eyes. lol

We have a lot more in common than I thought! Other than those I knew of, we've shared more experiences than I expected! I thought well this woman has her act together ,wait till she finds out I'm a lot of things in addidition to what she thought. I never judge other people's wrongs but still hesitate to be near someone who has not bounced around like I have. You are a strong woman sibyll and I'm glad to be a new friend. I hope it is mutual!!<br />

I'm sorry for your losses, but at the same time I'm very glad that you and your sister are close. I don't know what I'd do without my sister.
