I lost by younger brother in a car accident last week. He was 30, a father of 2 young boys, and was driving to work when he was rear ended. Our world is upside down.

I lost my 16 year old brother to a Encephalitis due to brain absences

I lost my 3rd youngest brother Dec. 5, 2019. I've been close to since he was born. I was 15 when Darrell was born, he was always tagging along with me. He was just 2 years older than my son when I was 18, so everyone assumed they were both mine. But what would you think of an 18 to 20 year old with 2 kids in car seats. I could never say no to Darrell tagging along. I enjoyed having him to play with my son. When my son was in Kindergarten I got a call from Child Protective Services. They were calling because my son had reported to the teacher that his uncle kicked him in the nuts, I just chuckled knowing that it was true. Then said yes I'm aware. They then asked me why I didn't call the police. I then said his uncle is 6 years old. Darrell and all my siblings are more than siblings to me. I was put in a position of almost a parent from the time my mother started having children with my step-dad (whom I consider my father.) Over the years as they have grown I've been reminded by all of them that I'm not their mother. I know this in my head but in my heart, it aches more like a parent to have us not get along and lossing Darrell still hurts way more then lossing our mother to cancer the prior year. Darrell took mom's death really hard. I never get dreams of either of them. I'm jealous of those who have dreams of those they've lost.

I lost my little brother aproximately 6 months ago and I have had a very hard time dealing with the loss. I am seventeen years older then him, he was only four monts older then my oldest child, therefor we had a different relationship then siblings usually do. He was more like my child then my brother. I always knew i loved him buti never dreamed his death would have the effect on me it did.

It seems our experiences are similar. My baby sisyer

It seems our experiences are similar. My eldest son is 10 months older than my baby sister. She tells me talking to me reminds her of talking to our Mom. We both miss Darrell so much. It's a hole I can't fill or ignore from day to day.

So true. The loss of my little brother has left a hole in my heatt only fillable by him. I am gonna spend the rest of my life in misery. I kow this. I just can not fathom how someone as good hearted as he was can be GONE stolen.. It just dont seem possible. This world is filled with bad people but God left them and took one who had a heart and soul of gold. His wings wete ready but my heart was not. I will grieve until i take my last breath.

I forgot to add that my little brothers death was not accidental. A person made the choice to take his life all because of greed.i hppe thst person stops playjng God. And they realizes they r causing unnecessary hurt.

I'm sorry your brother was taken that way. My brother took his own life. several of my siblings will not admit to that because of religious reasons. He suffered with PTSD and Alcohol Abuse from his military service. The wall his ashes were enterned in he was the youngest to be laid to rest their at 31 years old. I actually am the RN PTSD Clinical Care Coordinator where I work at. I have so much regret that 😪 that I couldn't help him. But working with my patients and seeing those that do make it helps me cope on some level. Prayers for you to find beauty from ashes. Your brother would want you to have that.

I have teied my hardest not to let my little brothers death, be the center of my world, but i cant. I have always known i loved him, but i never knew to what extent.
