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,.

Thanks for your honesty, and I feel the same. Personally, I hate it when people say it is our choice, to look forwards or back, etc, partly because that sounds like they are blaming the bereaved for feeling sad and missing their loves, and…"

Hi, everyone,I have been going to a grief group since I felt I needed some direction to "get a life".The leader is a great guy and has some wisdom that for the moment I consider. He told us that it is our choice of how we spend the rest of our lives without our loves. We can either look forward or backward. Well, it all sounds good until I get home to an empty house, an empty life, no friends I really like, a family who thinks I am doing "better", and a husband who is gone. All the things…See More
