I was born in Philadelphia. I was the bicentennial there but moved to California before Star Wars was released. My parents split up when I was young. My dad returned to the east coast in the late 70s but moved back to California a few years ago.
About my Loss:
I met a girl in High School. She had a baby with someone else. She married a third guy. She and I were always close. She came to live with me in May 2009. She made me the happiest I had ever been in my whole life. She was very sick during a lot of 2011 and we had no idea why. She was in the hospital a very short time in October because of a high fever and trouble breathing. She was released way too soon (in my opinion) and she died a few days later. There was no one else in my life.
yes it is very difficult because he was young , i wish i had more time with him. i do't think its fair that they get taken away so young. I thought as time went by it would get easier but i see it doesn't. There are days that are harder then others where all i can do is just cry but then i think , just how you said , our loved ones wouldnt want to see us like this. They are all in a better , safe , and happy place. I am very sorry for your loss as well, i can only imagine how hard it was for you since she lived with you. She is now looking over you. She'll always be with you in spirit.

"Strike those vacations below, they'll never be another one. Went on a memorial cruise with my daughter and family four months after she passed because she was so looking forward to it. It hurt enough to know they'll be no more."

If you have lost a loved one to alcohol, substance abuse or suicide please share your story or feelings here. Share the love and beauty of the one you lost. Losing someone any of these ways is not natural and can be hard to understand and ask why? I lost my Mother to an overdose 9 years ago. She also suffered from major depression. Her doctor got her hooked on pain medication and she was addicted most of my life. These doctors who were suppose to help her ended up killing her in the end. I also…See More
"I am very sorry to hear about your Mom passing. I lost my Mother to an overdose 9 years ago and just my identical twin sister last month to an overdose. My mother and I were not as close as I would have liked. The disease kept her depressed and…"
I'm starting this group in hopes that people who come to oninegriefsupport in the U.S. can share in their experiences and grief for homicide related deaths. There are tons of support grief services for cancer, alzheimers, loss of children, suicide, ..I could go on. But there are not many support groups for homicide related issues. With the growing gun-related deaths, I thought it would be prudent to create this small sub-group here.I know that grief is very unique and it shouldn't be compared…See More
