Attention devastating loss

last week my Aunt passed away. her funeral was on Monday, and I was a pall-bearer. she was SO much more than just an aunt to me! she had become so much to me: a supporter, a cheerleader, a confidant, a safe 'hide-out', an ear, a shoulder, an encourager/empower-er, and most days the only reason I had to even check my email or texts!

i keep checking my cell to see if there's a text from her! and i keep thinking 'i should text her'!! i open my email and expect to see something from her! it's so much worse than a punch in the gut! i've lost "my person" - she had become like a best-friend to me over the past like ten years. [only got two friends, outside of relatives]

it's also the third major loss for me in the last 17 months (all in less than a year & a half)

Sorry for your loss jrae and that is very tough to go through a third major loss in the last 17 months. Take good care of yourself and consider grief support or grief counseling. For me it helped to subscribe to daily emails regarding grief support since lost my dad in 2018 and less than 2 months later my uncle.

My condolences on your loss. May I share with you a link to one of my favorite articles, from PC's archives, on the subject of grief & loss?:

What My Dog Taught Me about Grief and Loss

May it be of benefit.

Both my parents passed away this year, I have been grief stricken. My mom was my best friend and her being gone now has really left a big void in my life. It's going to take you time to learn how to live your life without this kind presence being in your life. Be patient with this, it's ok to grieve and miss this special person you had in your life.
