"Hi Camren. I feel the same way you do. I lost my grandma in 2014 and now my mom last year. They were the only two people closest to me. My grandmas death was sad but she was 83 so I was thankful that she had a long life. My mother died unexpectedly…"
"Hi, you are not alone in losing so many so soon. My family is pared down also. This new "reality" hit home 5 years ago this month when my mother passed away. She left me here to deal with them until I die. I miss them all. Now we, my…"
Hello. To start I’m 33 currently. I lost my sister in 2007, and that has been the most difficult loss. My mother soon followed in 2008. My sister was 29 and my mother was 49.

She died when he was 5 so he didn't know her well. He has not had a mom since…"
"Just got here. Widowed at age 28. It took 18 hours from healthy wife to no more wife. That was nearly 8 years ago. She wanted me to move on and I wanted the same for her if I went first... strange that we had the conversation mere months before her…"
"The dr from the hospital talked to my therapist. I didn’t get any more answers. I am convinced they gave up on her and since I did nothing, I’ll never know if she could have been helped. I can’t fathom why I acted…"
"I feel for you Brett if you are fighting all this alone. A big hug from India.

"It only rains here when I want to go to the pool.
I am worried about Bluebell as well. I think she would have chimed in by now if she was feeling well.
I had a selfish moment today. I actually have a lot of those. I was at the store and I started…"
strange, I had and continue to have similar problems regarding what to say about myself in this context, but somehow I stumbled here after my husband's death and it has been helpful. Just reading of bereaved people's…"
