Today was the worst...........

I never thought in a million years that I would have to bury a sibling. But I had to today. My 31 year old sister died very suddenly and unexpectingly on Monday and her funeral was today. It was the worse thing I have ever had to go through. I feel alone and empty. My parents had passed years ago and we have younger half brothers but she was all I had left that was apart of our mom and dad. My younger half brother passed 13 years ago and this has been so much harder for me. RIP Erica......I love you!!!!!

There are no words anybody can ever tell you to make this pain go away. 

Simply find consolation in the mere fact that YOU out of every being in the world, got the chance to experience 31 years with the amazing women I'm sure she was. You are a lucky woman to have had a sister you were close to.


RIP Erica. Wherever your soul may be, may it sore high in the sky. =)

I am so, so sorry for your loss. I couldn't imagine how much it would hurt to lose one of my sisters.

Thank you very much. It is very hard. I am getting tired of people asking me how I am doing. How do you expect me to be doing???? I still feel like I am dreaming and just hope that it will be time to wake up soon.

No not really. She had just complained of not feeling well the week prior. We have a family condition called Marfan's syndrome. The medical examiner said she died from aortic dissection which was probably contributed to that condition. But we did not know that she had it because she would never go to the doctor.

Oh I'm so sorry, Im sure its so hard to go through this. She must have felt very sick, at least now she isn't suffering anymore and she's probably being held in your parents arms.
