  • Stillme I am so very sorry for your loss and will have you and your family in my thoughts during this time. Please feel free to email me if I can help in any way. {{{{{hugs}}}}}}
  • My mom died in the first week of July of 1999. My dad died two weeks later. My Condolences to you and your family. Trust me when I say I know how you feel.
  • Awwwww, stillme, I'm so sorry!! Are you OK? My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. {{{HUGS}}}
  • I am so sorry for you loss. Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. If you need anything, you have my email. [[[[hugs]]]]
  • Aw, Stillme, I'm so sorry to hear that, and that it has been such a rough time for you. Please know that you have friends here, and I hope that both your "real-life" friends and your cyber friends will be of comfort to you. I can't imagine 5 deaths in one year. I know that my husband had it rough with 3 in one year: his father, grandfather and uncle all died when he was 8 years old.
  • Oh honey I am so sorry for your loss. No, I have never had that happen to me but I can imagine how hard on the family it is. Good luck to you and yours and I will be thinking of you.
  • My heartfelt condolences. Five deaths in so short a time period is a lot for anyone to deal with.
  • I am sorry to hear about your loss. My family went through a stretch like that when I was younger. My great-grandparents and their siblings were at that age where they just started passing away. If I remember correct, we lost 4 in about a year. They were all over 70 though.
  • I'm here for you stillme. You know that don't you?
  • Wow Im so sorry.. Makes my problems seem small...No not that close together. If you need someone I listen.
  • Oh stillme I'm so sorry to hear that. I don't know how I would be able to cope with such a loss. My dad passed away several years ago. But then again, I rarely saw him when I was a kid, so I wasn't really hurt when he died.
  • I'm sorry to hear that. I have a friend, whose mother lost 5 or 6 siblings within a year. And I'm sure we may be coming up on things. My parents are 76 and 74, one uncle is 71 and his wife 70 this year, another uncle 64. My grandmother (their mother) died a year ago April 21st. My brother's father-in-law is 81 this year, my sister's in-laws are 76 and about the same. And my cousins' in-laws are "up there" two.
  • Yes, and it was devastating. They were all elderly, but that does not ease the loss by any means. I understand your feelings. My sympathies and best wishes. It takes time.
  • sorry to hear of your loss, grieving will take time, eventually the flowers will bloom again :)
  • I had 9 members of my family fall victim of a propane gas tank explosion during a family reunion last year.
  • I'm so sorry to hear that, my friend. My condolences to you and your family. No, I haven't experienced anything like that. Each loss is painful in itself..the cumulative sadness of all of those in your life who are now gone must be extremely hard to take. I send my good thoughts and ((hugs)) and hope that the pain isn't too deep and doesn't last too long! No happy face, sweetie.
  • Sorry to hear of your loss, it must be very difficult to deal with. The deaths in my family have been spread out over the years.
  • I am so sorry stillme for all you've been through this year. You are not alone....all your friends here ( including me ) will be here for you. Many ((hugs)) to you and prayers sent your way. Love ya:)
  • I couldn't even begin to imagine how you must be feeling and what you and your family must be going through. My thoughts and prayers are with you and everyone and best wishes to all. You can make it through this, everyone does in their own time and in their own way.
  • That is very sad, and I feel for you. I have relatives by marriage who lost a whole stack of their young ones (4 or 5) within a two year period. It was horrific and took them a long time before they got anywhere near a normal existence again. But they did, with lots of love and lots of counselling. Makes sure you get some of both. All the best.
  • I am sorry for your loss. Yes. There were 6 deaths in my family last year, all were elderly except one..my brother's baby.
  • I'm so sorry for your terrible loss. Please know that MG and I have you in our thoughts and prayers and that your AB family is here for you in both good times and bad. Take care of yourself sweetie:)
  • Sorry for your loss :( if you need to talk i'm always available
  • no, i haven't. my family and i are still reeling from the one death in our family last year.. i'm so sorry for your recent losses. my sympathies to you and your family.
  • Im so sorry to hear that stillme, i will be praying for you and your family.. you are all in my thoughts. (((hugs))) take care honey xx
  • I feel so bad for you, it doesn't matter the reasons or the ages, it is just so very sad for you. I am so sorry' stillme I ll say a prayer for you, if it's ok.
  • Sorry to hear that. I had 2 deaths and the daughter is dying due to strokes.
  • Oh I am so sorry for this loss. Take care. Heres a hug from me to you, hon. (((HUG)))
  • The most we've had so far is two in that kind of time. Please accept my sincerest condolences for your loss. {{{Hugs}}}
  • Thank you so much!
  • I have had 3 die in the same year. My family is so large that it is common for 3 deaths a year to happen.
  • Yes. My grandfather died Aug2005, my father (his son) died Mar2006 (7months apart!), my husband's aunt died 2wks later (after my father died)...
  • I am really sorry to hear about your loss. I know eaxctly what you are going through. I lost four people in one year. My mother, my aunt and grandmother all died within the space of two weeks. Mum= 25/01/2005 Aunt= 26/01/2005 Gran= 2/02/2005 Uncle=17/11/2005
  • It gets to a point where you are even immune to any more deaths,you loose the capacity to cry,you dont care anymore
  • Yes. This year alone my aunt lost her second husband. My s/o's greatgrandma passed away, my cousins grandma, who I'm technically not related to. Then just yesterday my greatgrandma. Plus if I count my kitty who was a member of my family since she was 5 days old, and my grandparents dog whos been there at least 10 years. Brings the toll to 6.
  • i know of one family who lost their eldest child about 5 years ago. He was 19. Then this week, they lost their next child who was 20. They only have one child left. So sad.
  • first, my sympathy to you and your loved ones. I think that seems like a lot to me but it depends if your family size is really big with extended families it may not be that unusual.
  • no, not yet at least. knock on wood. my condolences
  • Yes, and it is very hard. In 13 months, my uncle (diabetes), Grandmother (Cancer) Cousin (We still don't know what happened to her) Boyfriends best friend since he was 7 commited sucide, his uncle, and my grandfather (old age). I know how it feels, and I am sorry that you have to go through this. If you need anyone to talk to, let me know. I will send you my email.
  • No. I had a friend who unfortunately loss a brother, father, dad, and grandmother in a short period of time....So, sad his family stuck together, stayed strong, and kept their faith in God. My condolences to you and your family; I am truly sorry to hear of your loss.
  • Sorry for your loss.
  • Sorry about your stepdad.. In my family it comes in 3's.. Last year I lost 3 uncles and an aunt in 6 or 7 months.
  • sorry to hear that, yeah it seems when it rains it pours. I've had three in my family in less than a year and one who is in the hospital right now who could go any minute, it's touch and go right now.
  • well...listen to this! this is what happened with my grandma... her dad died when she was 17...then at the age of 19 she got married (that was a long time ago)...then when her husband turned 41 he died from a massive explosion in the war (it was a big bomb)...then 8 years later her oldest son died of a car accident...3 years after that her other son died of cancer (LEUKIMYA)...and after that in a bit her brother died of a heart attack, and then her old mother died... i know its really hard to believe this... but it's MISERY AT ITS BEST!
  • Not just family, I lost friends as well. I lost my aunt, an uncle, my grandpa, 1 friend in a fire, 2 friends in different car wrecks, and all the friends that I served with in the Marines that didn't make it home in the course of 1 year. I understand how you feel.
  • The Sixties were the decade for me. I got married, I had two children, my mother died, my grandfather died, I was physically and emotionally abused by the husband, my marriage died. It was tough!++++++ I am so sorry for YOUR loss!
  • The Sixties were the decade for me. I got married, I had two children, my beloved grandmother died, my mother died, my beloved grandfather died, I was physically and emotionally abused by the husband, my marriage died. It was tough!++++++ I am so sorry for YOUR loss.
  • My condolences for your loss. I think i've been lucky so far in my life. I have unfortunately lost my grandmother and granddad, but I was never particularly close to them. I've been lucky apart from that. I think a close relative dying while at a young age can be quite distressing, so again, I appreciate that this hasn't happened to me. Sorry for your loss.
  • We did have 3 people pass this past year so I know you are going through a really rough time and I will pray for your family and am so sorry for your loss. Know you are in our thoughts.
  • Unfortunatley this is the year of (Baby Boomers) and allot of our loved ones over the ages of 65 will pass away in the next few years. Death does come sometimes in multiples and it can be overwhelming. So make sure to take some time out for yourself to regroup.
  • No, but my sympathy is with you.
  • No, I've only ever had 2 family members die in the space of a year, one from a heart attack & another from Parkinsons Disease. I was only 3 at the time though so I can't really remember.
