  • My oldest brother pass away just last Nov 2015. Still trying to wrap my head around the fact. We weren't extremely close as our age difference was about 16 years and he lived in another city for most of his life and mine. But, there is that persistent, shitty, annoying twinge of heavy pain in my heart that I can't get over. Probably never will. I miss him even though I didn't know too much about him as a brother should. That might be the reason why I do miss him the most. Didn't get more time to get closer to him or a chance. Never take for granted who's in your life right now and appreciate the time we have with them. It can go in an instant without warning.

  • My mom fell terminally ill and died within a year of diagnosis. It was a very aggressive and haunting experience. She got a disease no one had ever heard of and so it wasn't respected the same as diseases like cancer. A lung transplant could've given her a few more years to at least see my sister graduate high school. It didn't happen. Her heart failed because her lung failed and all her organs failed after. In the end, she was only living because of machines. I had to make the decision to let her go. It is still sometimes hard to grasp how our life went from so normal to so upside down so quickly.

  • Does it count if he came back to life? haha But my friend I've known for 16 years now recently got a horrible case of pneumonia, his heart stopped, and they resuscitated him. He's doing well now!

    I've also had many loved pets over the years pass away :(

  • My closest female friend was murdered a month before our high school graduation. A pervert murdered her. It was a coworker of hers. Thought she wasn't gonna be home so he broke in and stole her under. She came home and found him and he beat her to death.

  • In terms of emotionally its a toss up between my Grandfather who died of cancer. My best friend from the age of 5 who died in a bike accident. In terms of proximity I was in a club and someone got stabbed to death right next to me. If you are dealing with personal grief my humblest of apologies. My advice is humour and the willingness to continue on are what get you through. By all means reflect but not negatively.

  • Best friend from HS. Enlisted together. He went on a deployment before me. Got blown up in Afghanistan at 18. His parents had to sign for him because he was 17 when he went in like me. Five years later and I still visit. They are dead inside and you can just see it in their eyes. Kills me so much. It's fcking war though what you are you going to do. What we signed up for.

  • Nobody super close to me has died, fortunately. The closest would probably be my grandma's cousin, because of old age I guess.

  • My best-friend. She had an allergy to eggs. She always payed attention on what she's eating, but that day, I don't know they probably told her there was no egg, but there was maybe some mayonnaise or something. She died of an allergy reaction, her boyfriend urged to her dorm room trying to save her but she died in his arms...

  • My Grandpa! (was truly sad)

    and in non human.. My cat. (was the most heartbreaking and devastating emotion i've experienced) He was with me always always.

    I cannot even imagine if someone who's even closer to me on a more personal level, would to pass away,... i don't think I could live happily thereon after... it's an awful thought... that I do not hope to experience..

    • Another hard one was a friend of mine who died from a sudden stroke 3 years ago. We're only 3 months apart in age. That one tears me up everytime I see her kids.
