My beautiful mother died suddenly 8 weeks ago today. I found her sitting up, and knew she was gone. It was very traumatic I can not get her finally image out of my heart! It scares me that someone can be suddenly be so gone.....

Please share your own losses.

I lost my grandson over a year ago. I pray for those who grieve over losing loved ones. It is a hurt that cannot be explained, a void that won't go away. I hang on to my faith in God and I am assured of his comfort and strength.
Bless you.
Its really terrible loss for you and can't forget. I m sorry for your mom. Sudden death is really painful and we stay away from our loved one. Its difficult to deal with this grief. I pray to God for you and give you strength. My condolences for you. Sympathy Verse
We lost our wonderful daughter while we were all whitewater rafting. We couldn't save her. One moment she was waving she was okay and the next she went under and didn't come back up. Her foot got stuck in some rocks. That was 9 years ago. The path of grief is a long one. But I can tell you in time it does soften. Hardest time for me is the holidays. I will be so glad when the New Year is behind us. I'm sorry you lost your Mom and I know how your heart is breaking. It will take a long time to get that image out of your mind. But it does get better. I am praying for you and your family. God Bless
Thanks Katherine,

Today is hard as it is my 47th birthday. My first one without my mom being here. It is so quiet in the house when you are alone. Did you feel restless and difficulty sleeping? Its getting a bit better but I miss mom so much and dad too of course!

Thanks for the words of wisdom and comfort.
Julie
Thanks to all who wrote words of encouragement. I have a strong faith in God and that helps me get through.

I can not believe i wrote this almost two years ago. I have been pushing my feelings down since she died and still am haunted by finding her there, sitting and I knew she was gone. How could she die and i not know it? I am trying to allow myself to really feel her loss.

 

It is hard to make it through the days, i have more good then bad but when i am alone and not working then it gets bad. I made the decision to seek counseling so I am calling next week. i dont know what else to do.

I lost my good friend Tyler to the "Choking Game" back in 2009. He was only 16, and he lost his life to something so careless. It is still very hard to fathom. Last December, his mother Tina, my mother's best friend, was murdered. It feels so unreal. You always see stuff like that on the news, and you never think it will happen to anyone close to you. It's like a nightmare.

I hope you all are doing well. God bless. 

I just think that a lot of people are experiencing sudden loss and with it, shock of course.  It is just too tough.
