I am very sorry.
Thanks everyone. Today is the day, and I’m just not coping well. I can’t stop thinking my daughter should be here mourning her Nonno . Nothing is right here, nothing will ever be.
I'm sending extra thoughts and prayers to you on this very difficult day.
I know you are hurting
All the posters here wish you peace
Sending you love and prayers
Some days will be harder than others and hope the times it is hard to cope,will become fewer
You have been through so much more than anyone should ever have to bear in such a short time! My heart breaks for you. I am continuing to keep you and your family in my prayers.
mommasita, you are in my thoughts.
Oh my God, I am so sorry... I can't even begin to imagine...
I felt sick reading this. I am so sorry to hear this at this time of year.

I am so sorry. Keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.
Thinking of you all the time mommasita. Can hardly type to you without tears. Love sent to you all.
I'm so sorry for an unimaginable loss. I'll pray for you and your family.
I lost a son to an over dose Sept 30 2016, its not exactly the same thing but I always wonder if he did it purposely bc he was a very unhappy person from a very young age. I know as a parent its hard not to question yourself and everything that you did, but remember that you cannot control anyone and even if you could have done something to stop her, there is a big chance she may have tried again, I had a friend whose son tried multiple times before succeeding and his mother prevented several of those time.
I hope your finding some peace, no youll never be the same, I am not, I never will be but youll heal some enough to not think about it every hour on the hour.
Your welcome to message me anytime, I wont have any answers for you but I do know what your going through.
My mother is actually in hospice right now, so Im going to loose my mother soon too..
Sending hugs, pixie dust and prayers
So very sorry @mommasita.
I can't even imagine the loss
Sending prayers to you and your family with my heartfelt condolences .
Thank you to everyone. I lost my father March 3. I spoke to him the night before, and he was coming over. Super healthy man, literally dropped dead. He hasn’t slept well since, and I think he worried for me, and thought he may lose me.
So, my Briana would be turning 19 on April 19th. I have booked a trip with my husband to Punta Cana. I won’t forget this day, any day, but I can not be in this house all day alone. I can not face it. I am running away
My son is doing ok, he is working, doesn’t want to talk about it, that worries me more, but we all deal in our own way I’m told. My husband doesn’t want to either, at least not with me. It’s trying times, and our household is broken.
I have great friends, but there is always an elephant in the room, so social settings are off the table for me.
I'm so sorry. I hope somehow you and your family can find peace. Grief has it's own timeline. Hugs.
I pray for peaceful hearts for all of you.
*many hugs* Our family lost its youngest adult to suicide a few years ago. You are not alone in this pain. *have a Duffy Bear to cry on*
And the sky shows its blue sympathy
Or clouds the stars from her eyes
To cry with me
And the world remains firm
A hope against my soul-ripped heart
My strength when I have none
The day has no meaning
But the sun still rises
Even as darkness falls around me
And the world responds with beauty
Unfair to whisper grace
When grace I cannot feel
And the heavens absorb my cry
And yet still responds with stars
Even though my star is gone
And cannot think discreetly
The earth spins undetected
And so do I
At casual conversation
How can time move on
No, I am not OK
For hope I cannot feel
Grace I do not know
They are strangers to me
That life is unsecure
And breath is as impermanent
As souls are forever
In uncontented days
Along uncommitted paths
In a world that no longer makes sense
And the world doesn't sigh with me
And time moves ahead
And leaves me behind
For portals between worlds
For a drop of yesterday
The links to grow unended
My path to not be parted
My heart to not be still
A link without the linkage
A bond without the bonding
A soul without its quilting
Forward day by day
Holding invisible hands
That pray with me for continuity
That hope someday will find me
And show me paths to meet me
With hands that hold mine still
Not apart but abreadth
Not alone but amidst
Interconnected by faith
That time is so uncertain
That here is not not there
And forever is true regardless
