Hi, my name is Sable, and I live in Oregon. I am originally from Wisconsin, which is where I lived until the age of 3. Then I was moved to Vermont until the age of 8, at which point I made a final move to Oregon. My favorite color is purple and burgundy, I love chocolate and coffee, and I love cats.
About my Loss:
My papa (grandfather) fought leukemia and then multiple myeloma for 8 years, before he passed away on the 19th of October, 2017. He lived to the age of 74. He was my mentor, childhood hero, and closest family member. I honestly don't know what I'm supposed to do without him,.

"Seems like we all have our regrets and sadness that we live with every day. But I have noticed for myself that though I still have them, they have softened over time.
On a different subject I want to celebrate this morning of being able to…"
No happiness. Nothing to look forward to. Constant pain. Memories everywhere and longing to be able to make more or even talk about them. Scared, needing answers, anxious, lost, angry, devastated, guilt ridden. how could life be so cruel? It’s just not possible.See More
Today I had to respond to several emails and repeatedly write down that my mother is dead. Finding it very hard to keep writing the words, so hard that it took several days of tearful effort to complete the three most pressing responses. Finally got them done. I just miss my mother so much. I hate picking up the phone now because some part of me still expects her voice at the other end of the line. I feel wounded by family and friends who are grieving so differently from me, who are keen to…See More
