    I can only imagine how you must feel, J.R. I wish I had some comforting words for you.

    I'm so sorry for your family's loss.

    You're not a **** poster, either. You're an asset to this community and, yes, an extended family member of sorts. You help keep this place running with all the news and stories you share. And you would be missed if you ever stepped away.

    So sorry to hear. It's such a nightmare to even think of losing one of my brothers or my sister that my mind shrinks from it. I hope you can find comfort in your family.

    This seriously sucks. Sorry man. Having lost people I loved, all I can say is time is the only thing that will heal the wound, and there will be always be a scar left behind.

    Time will heal if you let it, but you'll always remember, and that's not a bad thing. I hope you and the family find peace and support.

    Yeah, I keep trying to take my mind elsewhere (NFL Playoffs, Texans dumpster fire, NBA/Rockets) but it keeps going back to her.

    God, I’d give my life up to bring her back.
    I’m an emotional wreck. (First close death for me)
    There’s a void and it can’t be filled.
    Part of me wants to wake up from this nightmare and part of me wants to go sleep/“sleep this off” (and maybe never wake up again)

    What a tragedy @J.R.

    Things may never be the same but the darkness stemming from today is not forever. Mourn and also celebrate your sisters life.

    I’m truly sorry to hear that you and your family are going through this! I wish I had some magic words to help alleviate your pain, but I don’t. Losing a loved one weather it’s a family member or a friend is something we all dread and one of the hardest things we all have to go through at some point.

    I’ve heard over and over that time heals all wounds, it’s not true, time only helps numbs the pain of losing a loved one, but this is actually a good thing! We really don’t want the pain to completely go away, it’s the pain that we feel in those beautiful memories that you shared with them that lets us know that there was real love that was shared! I don’t know you or your family personally, but after reading your posts I can tell that there is love in your family and that you loved your sister and she loved you!

    Once again I’m sorry for your loss and you and your family have my deepest condolences! I will be praying for you your mom and your family that my God and Savior JesusChrist will give you peace and strength in the midst of the pain that your going through right now.

    If you need someone to talk to, feel free to PM me, I’ll try help you as best as I can...

    You’re in my thoughts. I’m sorry you’re going through this. I hope in time that you and your family are able to find peace. Take time to process and grieve this tragedy however you need to but you will get through this.

    Stay strong brother, but don't be afraid to let your emotions out -- don't hold everything inside.

    I’m so sorry. I hate to repeat what others have said, but it bears repeating: eventually the pain of this loss is replaced with only sweet memories. We all go through trying times with our loved ones, and even if I happen to recall a spat with one of my parents, I can still remember something in that moment to make me smile. You’ll always miss your loved ones, but you’ll always have them with you.

    Very sorry for your loss.

    Of course I understand why you want to distract yourself, but if you could do it that easily there'd be something wrong with you.

    Don't ever feel guilty or ashamed about being upset for your loss. And F anybody who expects anything else from you. Take the time to unapologetically be properly sad. Working through the grief is important.
