Don't grieve alone; 14,000 members and growing
Hi. I am Wes...
I am the last of my immediate family. (I am going to be 60 yrs old this coming spring).
My dad passed from small cell lung cancer, 4 days before Christmas 2012/(2013). Then 4 years later I lost my mom to COPD. The next year I lost my kid sister, also to COPD, and then this past April I lost my baby brother to stomach cancer.
I worked at the same company as my mom and dad. I lived with my mom and sister since 1998, so I have spent a great deal of time with my family and I never dreamed they would all pass on before me.
There are some song lyrics that sum up how I feel about it,...it is called "Empty Chairs" by Don McLean
"I wonder if you know, that I never understood, that although you said you'd go until you did, I never thought you would."
I feel lost without my family.
I was close with my sister, the second anniversary of her passing is next week on the 22nd. I was her primary caretaker at the end of life.
Sometimes, I talk out loud to my family...I have no idea what the afterlife is like but I like to think they can hear me.
I am overwhelmed by grief at times and I could use some new friends.
That is all I want to say for now, I am not fully awake yet. LOL Gotta get back to my ☕ .
