Members habsgirl89 Posted February 12, 2008 Members Report Share Posted February 12, 2008 A little over a month ago, I lost my 17 year old brother in a tragic accident that took the lives of 7 other people. They were coming home from a basketball game and the school van collided with a transport. It feels so surreal, and people keep telling me to be strong for my parents, but I can't always be strong. He was my strength and my best friend, and now that he isn't here, I'm not really sure how to be. He was a year younger than me, but we were always so close and had the same friends. People keep telling me he is in some place where he can't feel any pain and sometimes I feel like I can feel him, but I don't want to simply feel him in my heart, I want him here with me. I don't want him anywhere else but with me. I wanted to grow up with him. I wanted us to experience so many things together. I will never be able to know what kind of man my brother was going to be. I'm so angry and I have no idea why. I hate the fact that he doesn't get to be the uncle of my children someday, that he won't be at my wedding, that he won't see me growing up. I don't know how to deal with all of this and I wish everything would just go back to normal and that he was here with me. See, the thing is...the one person who could give me some great advice on all of this would be him. I'm not looking for answers, I'm just looking for someone who's gone through something similar so that I can talk with them. Not necessarily a situation exactly like this, but simply the loss of a sibling. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
