The loss of a brother


The loss of a brother

This is for my brother. I was extremely close to him, and life just isn't the same anymore! :(

Feel free to post about your brother, talk about how you feel & what your going through! Post anything that you want to get off your chest! No one is here to judge. It's amazing how weird and different I may think I'm feeling, but after taking to other siblings.. we understand exactly like no one else!

I lost my brother on June 30, 2014. He was 42. I still cannot believe he is gone. I've endure loss in my life, but no loss has decimated me the way losing Craig has. We were thick as thieves, he and I. So very incredibly close. He was my hero. The rock I could always count on since I was a toddling bratty sister for him. Growing up, when it stormed, I didn't seek my parents for comfort. I went to my brother. It's been storming for over a month now and I can't find solace or comfort. I miss him so incredibly bad. I feel like he was cheated. Like the world has been robbed of him. He was larger than life and now he's been snuffed. There aren't words enough to describe how I feel.

Angela:  What a great and touching letter to your brother.  I too still long for a hug from my brother and miss his great laughter after 4 years.  My brother's death left his 3 grandchildren without their Pappy.  Their Grammy (his wife) died of breast cancer a year before him.  They called them "the babies".  I promised my sister-in-law that I would do my best to be there for them, but never dreamed I'd have to do it without my brother.  Since then, they also lost their paternal grandmother.  So, I feel a greater responsibility to be that kind of figure in their young lives.  Bless you for caring so much about your nieces.  Special thoughts go out to you on this first anniversary of your brother's "angel day".

It was one year ago today, almost to the hour I learned you had passed. My heart aches for you baby brother. What I would give to feel you hug me again, to hear you laugh. I am watching over your babies. You would be so amazed at them. Your baby tells me she's the boss at 2 years old and your 4 year old told me you taught her how to ride her bike. Even from Heaven you are taking credit for my hard work. While you are at it, how about telling her to stop xtalking back and that asking for a unicorn doesn't mean she will get it. I can still hear you laughing when your children push me to the edge of pure insanity. Today I remember that losing you only magnified the immense presence you had on all of our lives. I will forever hold your children the way I know you would. Your arms aren't here to embrace them but mine are. I can feel your heartbeat when I hold them close. Thank you for the precious gifts and I am forever blessed to have had you as my brother. Missing you more than words can describe and living the life you would expect from us all. One day, one second at a time without you is like a recurring nightmare but I'm quickly snapped out of it while picking peas out of my carpet and washing finger paints off my walls. Forever in my heart you will be and until I take my last breath on this Earth I will make sure your girls know how much daddy loved them. One day when we meet again I hope you are prepared for a punch in the eye for leaving me and a long embrace for loving me.

It's five months today that I lost my older brother Paul, he was 37. He drowned in a local river leaving his soul mate and children, well, his pets behind. Since this has happened my aunt who never really.spent time with us growing up has suddenly made this about her. My younger brother is currently in New Zealand and returns next month. It's been hell because my.partner was six months pregnant at the time and it's killing me knowing he'll never meet our daughter

The hardest thing to do everyday is wake up and realize my brother is not here any more, I miss him sooooo much that I count the days down til I see him again.

I am also new to the group. I am still grieving for my brother, Greg, who died on Jan. 20th. He was only 56 yrs. old. I miss him every minute of every day. Sometimes I think I can't go on without him.

Hi! I'm new here and actually the main reason I came here was because I lost my brother last October in a car accident. My brother and I were incredibly close our whole lives. We, as all siblings do, had our falling outs, but in the end, we were always the ones to come back together and try to find a way to help each other understand what was going on in the other's life. My brother was no saint and he never claimed to be. But he was a good man with a good heart. His daughter, my niece, Jaydin, loves her daddy more than life itself and always knew he wanted to take care of her. Now instead, she cries while she's taking care of his grave. I never wanted to know what it would be like to lose a sibling. I still have another brother and a little sister, but the bond I shared with James is one I can never have back. And even now, thinking about this, I cry, missing him all over again.

Moving Through the Seven Stages of Grief

When a heart breaks, you’re left gasping for air. After a while you seem fine, yet fall apart unexpectedly at random moments, sanity seemingly forsaken. There’s a saying that when a heart breaks, it cracks to allow golden love to shine through onto others. Do you see the value in going through this?It may not feel like it now, but grief is an honor. It is an honor to feel that much, to have loved that much. It teaches you compassion, gratitude, resilience, and the importance of grabbing life by…See More
