I was able to locate your account and see that we have something in common. We both have boys the same age. I'm sure your son was full of energy and personality. Even though my shift is about end, I am going to remain on a bit longer that way if you wish to talk and share some stories about your son, I'll be available. - Ina
Thank you @Sukiesshaggin for sharing about your brother Jeremy and how you are living and coping with grief.
I hope that helps @Redneck Cowboy and others here in community who are experiencing loss. My mother died suddenly in February of 2019 and not a day goes by that I dont feel the void that is left in her absence- so much of what you described rings true for me as well.
I love what you said, "we don't have any clue how hard it is for the person we're trying to be understanding for -so all we can do just try to be positive for anyone who needs positivity". I try to also live each day with this same mantra- you never know what another person is going through- like you feeling the loss of your brother and the immense grief @Redneck Cowboy feels with the unimaginable loss of their son. We are stronger together especially when spreading love and kindness.
Thanks again for sharing @Sukiesshaggin - you are spreading love and light to others!
