Four times in my life I’ve lost someone very, very close to me.
First was my child when she was almost six years old. She was disabled and the doctors said that she would not live past the age of 3, so were actually very blessed. She died in 2000, which is many years ago but still feels like yesterday when I think back.
Second was my father. He had a stroke and did not live long after that.
The third one was my husband. He died of a heart attack in 2016, which is not long enough to be over it yet.
And two months after my hubby died, my sister died of cancer. Just after they did a biopsy the cancer went crazy, got aggressive and killed her within 2 months.
So believe me when I say I know what you’re going through. I’ve lost one of each, a parent, a child, a spouse and a sibling.
