Don't grieve alone; 12,000 members and growing
We are eternal beings who will never be separated from our loved ones. ~ R. Craig Hogan, Ph.D.
Added by JO B
I wanted to share an idea of what we can do with pictures of our loved ones. Nancy Gershman, a digital artist, creates meaningful portraits from photos, memories and stories that we think about every day. Here is a sample of her work:
DREAMSCAPE PHOTOMONTAGE: Myrtle pays homage to the memory of her twin and keeps a promise to her sister. As long as she lives she will keep her nephew - who is a trucker - safe on the road.
I know Nancy's work and I’ve seen how she captures the entire essence of a person and the real truth about their character, their passions and their mission in life.
What Nancy does is digest all these photos, memories and stories until they re-emerge as a holistic portrait of the person you love. You see your father, sister, or beloved poodle, thoughtfully placed into a beautiful legacy portrait for you, but also for generations to come. The end result is that her artwork makes you smile or even laugh.
For the 30 - 60 minutes you spend with her by phone, she delivers a meaningful, heartfelt fine art photomontage in the form of an 8 x 10 print (or enlargement). She can also upload the artwork so you can make something to wear or display (photoblanket, photo-purse, photo trivet, etc.) -- however you want to keep that loved one close by.
I encourage you to view the documentary on Nancy Gershman’s work.

I lost my father 10 months ago when I was 21. Losing a parent at this age sucks. I am going through a job search now, and he was always the person who knew a lot about that and could help me. I don't have anyone to go to now and I keep getting rejected from jobs. It makes me feel like I am not good enough or worth it. Sometimes I wish I was dead so I could be with him and not have to worry about trying to be an adult without him.

I really don't know what I would do without this site, knowing I can come on here and read other peoples posts and know that I'm not going insane and I am indeed normal is a great help to me, I just cannot relate to people anymore, I have learnt that so called friends do not give a damn about me anymore, and im sick of people asking me "how are you, are you o.k", No I'm not…
Your clothes remain in the wardrobe and in your drawers. I keep thinking I should do something with them but I just can't bear to. Some stupid part of me keeps thinking what if you come back. Stupid I know. I must be out of my mind. But I don't want to let go. I can't. It hurts too much.
I work at a building with over a thousand employees, there is a lot of small talk waiting for elevators and walking from the parking structure. This morning an upbeat co-worker got off the phone with his parents and two stepped to catch up with me for small talk the rest of the way to the office. He started his convo with "ah parents" and I froze. I didn't know what to do or say. Long story short it gutted me and was the worst 3 minutes of my life. Immediately followed by the next worse ten…Continue
so kinda irritated cause I didn't notice where I was typing this long story from this morning that left me gutted. I put my whole heart into it and went to hit "share" and it's just deleted. Right now I feel like I can't even mourn my parents right. Crazy how quickly sadness can turn to anger. It's my own fault which just makes it worse cause I have nobody to blame. I'll retype the story and see if it helps me. Again. }:/
