Re: lost my brother in car crash
Mandy, I lost my oldest brother in 1994. He was 24, I was 23 and yes I still miss him a lot. He also died in a car accident.. I still think of that day, details of the wake, burial, life with him and especially things we didn't get to share. My now 8 year old asks about him all the time so that gives me a chance to honor him. He was the first born of 4 and we were 1 year apart.
I had lots of regrets, but I believe I've finally come to terms with his death..Now that I have kids I can totally understand what my mother, grandma, relatives went through.
I keep pictures of him around the house so he comes up in conversations quite often. I wish he was here but I'm also convinced he has a job up there, and he is our very special guardian *angel*..I know my faith is what saw me through his passing.
Mandy, it will get better, keep his memory alive and talk to him, you can have a different kind of relationship with him and your love for him doesn't have to die..
