Anybody lose someone that was close to you?

How did you deal with it? Lost my brother about 4.5 months ago and I still wish I could bring him back. I don't care where in the grieving process you are, how are you dealing with the death of someone that was close to you? Anybody kind of look forward to death, knowing that they'll see their loved one again?

*Edit*  Perhaps, "looking forward to" is not the correct phrase.  Rather, not afraid of death.  I am not suicidal.

  • I lost my best friend 2 years ago this upcoming jan. We had known each other for 22 1/2 years. You have to take it one day at a time, it has been very hard on me and there are days I still pick up the phone to call her before remembering she is gone. But I always carry her in my heart and my memories. I don't wish for death but I believe that at the end of my life she will be there waiting for me. Keep your head up and just keep the memories you had...that is how the people we love live on.

  • I am so sorry for the loss of your brother. I lost quite a few extended family members and my favorite Auntie, Grandma and Grandpa. One thing that helps me is to remember they are always right here with me, they are alive in my heart and in my memories. I do believe that someday we will see each other again and be reunited (in the afterlife). When I feel sad and miss them I will pull out the photo album and look thru it, and remember some of the good times and 'stories' behind the pictures. Remember everyone copes and deals with it in their own way and in their own time.
