For me about the 1st 10 years is hard, and when I dream of a loved one that has passed over it just brings much grief. But after 10 years when I dream of them it is like we had been together and it…Continue

Thank you, Rosie, for the reminder to keep going "for them." As much as I have wanted to just check out so many times in the past 13 years since my son's death, I have forced myself to keep functioning because he would not want me to abandon his brother and sister. I honor James' too-short life by trying to live up to his example of compassion and kindness.
It's been over two and a half years since my dear brother, Dan, passed away. The best "advice" I've received from someone who has also known great grief - "It doesn't get better. It just gets different."
While that may sound gloomy, I actually found a lot of comfort in that thought throughout the past few years. I don't expect to ever be who I was before. I don't expect things to not feel heavy or to not have a huge whole in my heart. There's now a "before" and an "after" and I can't go back. I'm able to function and get through the day and even enjoy some activities, but I'll never be the same. The best I can do is strive to make Dan proud of me and honor him in life. But it still hurts every single moment of every single day. Hope you all are coping okay. Keep going - for them.
I lost my Dad, my best friend, seven years ago. It really does get easier but it took a very long time for me to get used to him being gone.
It's a burden that needs to be carried with me the rest of my life I think.
Is anybody still here? It looks like all of the posts are from several years ago.

Six years ago today I was told my husband was brain dead and that he would not be coming home with us. I miss his so much and still wonder how this happened. The nights are so lonely now without my love. I try to keep busy with my grandchildren but when I lay down to sleep I'm alone....
