    (((Looby Lou))) -Thinking of you - and remember there's no right or wrong way to grieve - no obvious course for grief. I know It must be so painful for you - I can't imagine how it must feel to have lost a sibiling. I post on the bereavement thread when I'm feeling like some support over my Dad's death last year - I guarantee you'll get some uplifiting support and advice there.
  2. Looby Loo, that is so sad. I have 3 younger siblings and don't know what I would do if any of them died. You will get through this sad time - but sometimes time doesn't heal as quickly as others think. Still really miss my father 23 years on.
  3. I don't quite know what to say but didn't want to leave without doing anything. Some kind thoughts on the way from me to you.

    thinking about you xx
  5. Looby Loo I too lost my younger and only sister two years ago and I miss her so much I just wanted to say I know what its like. I hope you have someone to give you a big hug. I know it does not always work but I try and tell myself that Mary my sister would not want me 'wallowing' and being sad. I am using the term wallowing as Mary and I used to say "right we will be allowed to wallow for so long then we will put our heads up and fight and be happy" - this especially when she was told she had stomach cancer. But As someone else said on this its not about me, I just wanted you to know I feel for you and hope you can smile again soon. X

    To Everyone who has taken the time to read and send me your hugs and wishes, Thank you so much!
    I am very lucky that my OH is brilliant and knows all of the ins and outs of what happened, and lets me talk, share memories or just cry as much as I want! The memories are quite sore because I was only 11 at the time and witnessed a lot more than I probably should have (CPR, etc.) and although my sister had been ill most of her life, her death was a complete shock and out of the blue in one of her 'good' times- she was only 6 years old. I think I just feel so sad for the whole situation, I find it hard to understand why she had to suffer so badly for 5 out of her 6 years and all to be taken so quickly... It's not fair.
    Saying that, I am SO glad she is where she is (probably somewhere hot, laughing at me!) and that she didn't have to suffer anymore.
    I always used to tell myself that she went up to be a star, and even now I look up to them twinkling back at me. i know she's there. Seems silly but it's comforting.
    To those who have shared their own experiences- please do not feel bad or as if you are taking over the thread- you are right- It is nice to share experiences and stories, so thank you and ((((hugs)))) to you too!

    No doubt in the next few days she will have some surprises in store for me- she usually does this time of year (ornaments disappearing/ moving, only her pictures falling over and smashing, etc) so I am going to go to bed now to get some sleep while I can!

    Thank you all again, means so much to me xxxxx
