Angry R.I.P Uncle George - February 22nd 2014, 09:52 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of death or grieving, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

None of us knew he was actually dying, he hadn't told any of us he'd had cancer and he eventually gave in, he decided that since the treatment didn't work with his wife that he might as well be up there with her too. I miss him a lot, we used to live very close together, practically a street away from each other. The day I found out he had cancer he died. I was completely devastated, the second person in 2 year to die of cancer in my family and 2 people in my family are recovering from it. I miss you Uncle George, you were my world

Hi, Michaela.

I am so sorry, I can't imagine how you must be feeling right now. Things must be really hard for you right now. I'm honestly not sure what to say. Do you feel like talking to your family members or close friends about how you feel? Maybe it'd help, or maybe write down thoughts, memories and feelings in a private journal so you can express yourself. Let yourself grieve, I think everyone grieves in their own way. I hope you feel a little better sometime soon, he must have really cared about you.

I don't know what to say, I'm just really sorry.

Hey

I'm so very sorry for your loss. Don't forget - it is absolutely okay and HEALTHY to grieve. Let it out, and when you're ready, you'll be able to carry on with your life. Take really good care of yourself.

Thanks guys, he meant a lot to me, he was my whole world. He is the second Uncle that I have lost. The other I lost in a crash 10 year ago. I am grieving pretty badly but I should recover pretty soon hopefully

I'm sorry for your loss.
I hope you remember all the good times you had with him, or remember him in his best of times.

Hi, Michaela.

I'm very sorry for your loss. It must have been especially tough not to have known beforehand that he was fighting cancer, and then to lose him suddenly. It's the worst way to lose someone that meant that much to you, I think.

I agree with what Serena said regarding keeping memories written down somewhere, or things that remind you of him. It might be helpful, and it's worth a try if it helps you cope any better. I really hope you'll be okay, and feel free to PM/VM me anytime. All the best!

Im sorry that you have to deal with losing a loved one. It's never easy, especially when someone leaves so suddenly. It's okay to feel sad and to grieve. Take your time and remember all of the good things that his life brought you and your family . You could write, draw, or do something else to get you emotions out. And don't be afraid to reach out for support during the difficult times. Take care and I wish you the best!

Thank you. He will be a big miss. He was very supportive, especially when I had first split up with my ex because he had been stalking me. My uncle went everywhere with me just to protect me from him. We did all sorts together, his wife had also died of cancer. I miss him so much and finding it difficult to cope with the grief but I know I will get there eventually. He had been over the moon when he found out I was pregnant and now him and my baby are both gone
I'm trying my hardest to cope with this but its just so hard right now.

Hey there.

I'm really sorry to hear about your recent loss. Losing someone very close to you is one of the hardest things to experience and deal with in life. I am, however, very glad to see that you're trying very hard to remember (i.e., tribute, reflecting, etc) and to cope at the same time. Completing that task takes time, so don't give up, but instead continue to work on it!

I wish you all the best. Stay strong, my friend.


Best wishes,
Chris


Chris
I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...
