    I dont really concider them gone, I actually concider them as angels walking amonst me. I carry dialogue with them as they were walking with me at my side. It may not be clinicly sane but I don't care, my beliefs get me through.

    I think that's great, 1kmjs. It's about what helps you day by day to cope through the loss. I also mentally just consider it a temporary separation and hope that one day we will be reunited again for eternity.

    I've written poetry to help process the shock of loss when death has been sudden.  Putting words in order has helped organize and calm down the turmoil within.  Ultimately, though, time has been the best healer of all.

    Going through therapy is the best way for me to deal losing someone I love.  Sometimes getting the extra support can go a long way in dealing with tragic loss.

    In 2003 I lost three siblings within months of each other. I was in shock, and angry at everyone. You never quite get over that deep heartache. I wrote poems about their lives and how much I miss them. I designed their gravestones. And on special occasions I set a plate at the table for them. They are not with me physically, but are with me in spirit. I don’t think you can truly say goodbye to the ones you love.
