Profile Information

About Me:
I am a 43 year old Mom of two beautiful daughters. I am a Sister and a friend to many. I am a workaholic and my idea of relaxing is to start ridiculously huge projects on my home so I can absorb myself in them to avoid thinking too much. I try to stay positive and optimistic in the hopes that my brain will catch on one day to fill the void my heart is feeling most of the time lately. My family is and was as dysfunctional as most, my parents weren't perfect, but they were childhood sweethearts and truly loved eachother and we that are left try to stay as close as possible...
About my Loss:
I lost my Mom when I was 18 years old, my Sister 6 months later in a tragic accident. I lost a Brother 6 years ago and my Dad 2 years ago. I just recently lost another Brother to cancer, he was my friend, my confidant, my inspiration and my rock through the grief of losing so many that I loved. He was 46 years old, single, and I was his caregiver while he went to battle with his illness and this loss seems so much more profound. It's been 4 weeks and I just can't seem to stop shaking my head in disbelief.

Saw your name on the birthday list and thought I would stop by to send a few hugs. I just lost my brother in law a few weeks ago and am having a had time with his passing. Can he really be gone?? But then I am still saying that about my daughter and she left us 9 years ago. Life isn't a pleasent trip. God Bless you and I will keep you in my prayers.

Like I tell everyone, my friend, this road is never ever easy but it is better walking with others that know your pain than walking alone. I lost my 3rd and last brother in Nov and this crushed me because he was alone. His wife is a dr but her and his son had gone shopping. He died 1 day after his bday. Im here if you need an ear......hugs, dj

Dear Jonnie,

I am so sorry for the pain you are feeling over the physical loss of so many beloved members of your family, Hon. You were a wonderful sister to your brother. He will not forget that and God and your brother will be blessing you with many ADC signs from him to let you know that your brother is like an angel on your shoulder now. If you would like to read about the 20 common types of After-Death Communications, please visit my webpage at: http://www.christineduminiak.com/adc.html

You are in my prayers for God to heal your heart and to replace your sorrow with His joy, as well as to receive many wonderful ADC's.

Lovingly,
In Christ's Love,
Christine Duminiak

Please consider joining a bereavement support group, especially because of multiple losses. There is so much you can learn there and people to meet who can share your pain and understand a little more than the person who is not grieving. Your goal will be to accept and relate to your great losses in a new and different way. There is support out there that can help since hope always springs from our relationships with other people.

I've read that losing our parents takes away a piece of our past, that losing our spouse takes away a piece of our future, but that losing a brother or sister takes away pieces of our past and our future. So this is a huge loss! Please know that you are in a good place with many caring people. Thoughts and prayers are coming to you from south Texas.

I am so very sorry. I have a brother that has Crohn's and he is always very sick, and I worry that I may lose him at any time. I really don't know what I would do without him and I am so sorry that you have lost your brother, your mom, Dad and sister. My heart goes out to you. (((((hugs))))))
