We miss you, Graham.

We miss you, Graham. | Grief and Loss | Scoop.it

We love you and miss you more every day.

GrahamForeverInMyHeart's insight:

This is what Graham's sister posted on Instagram on Graham's birthday, January 24th:

 

On January 24, 1989 I became a big sister. On May 22, 2012 my only brother was ripped away from me. But just because Graham died does not mean I am no longer his sister, or that I am an only child. People think talking to a bereaved family member about their loved one is too painful. This is not the case; in fact, we want the opposite. We want you to speak their names, share your memories, and let us know they will never be forgotten. More damage is done with silence. Thank you to all who let us know that you love and remember Graham.

MourningAmyMarie | Grief and Loss | Scoop.it

Honestly, I am not sure how to describe myself since my youngest, beautiful, healthy, vibrant, precious daughter died suddenly on August 4, 2013 because I no longer know who I am behind this grief fog. However, I am absolutely positive about one thing, and that is I have changed.

Refuge in Grief

Refuge in Grief | Grief and Loss | Scoop.it

In 2009, I witnessed the accidental death by drowning of my partner, Matt. He was strong, fit, healthy – three months from his 40th birthday. It was a beautiful and ordinary morning: the first sunny day after three solid weeks of rain. An absolutely normal day, until it was not, and would not ever be again.

Dear Vice President Biden, 

The world woke up this morning to the news that your beloved son Beau had died. There are times when the only words that make any sense are “I am so sorry for your loss.” They sound trivial and somehow not sufficient enough, and yet nothing else makes much sense,
