Default The Death, Dying and Grieving Thread.

Well my beloved Grandpa just passed away this morning and just wanted to have a shout out to him at what an amazing individual he was.

He was a man with integrity, honor, leadership and a caring heart. Plus he Influenced every person he talked to.

RIP Robert you were the best grandpa anyone could have asked for
.

My little dog maybe dying tonight as well, so wish me the best.

Please feel free to express your emotions and feelings about a past death.or current death whatever it may be. Just say it and let it out

* Slams Do Not Exist!

Lenders: One thing people need to understand about this so-called weak era is that it was 'weak' for Federer on HC and grass and for Nadal on clay (Federer on clay too Nadal apart) because they were so much better than anyone else, for any outsider the era couldn't possibly be any harder, during 5+ years you had to either beat the best grass/HC player ever or the best clay player ever in every single Slam just to get 1 Slam title.

Your heartfelt tribute does him justice Kowchi. My sincerest condolences to you and your family. If you are to lose your little friend also, then I hope it's peaceful for them.

RIP.

I lost a close one this summer, and it really wasn't a nice time, particularly for everybody else in the family.

What are your ways of getting over grief? A bit of upbeat music helps, at least in my opinion.

My grandmother died of cancer a couple years ago, and it was the first real close death I had ever experienced (at age 27, which is really lucky to be able to go that long in life without it).

As for getting over it, that is/was tough. There are days even now that I see something or think something and wish I could call her.

That said, I actually got a tattoo to help me get over the grief. There was a funny inside joke as a family that spawned a nickname we had for her and I got the tattoo with the name on my arm. I see it every day and when I think about the name and the story, I can't help but laugh and I can think about the person she was and not how she looked before she died.

I'm sorry for your loss

I agree that having something to remember your loved one is a great way to cope with losing a loved one. I have pictures of both of my grandparents on my desk, so I always see them whenever I'm feeling down.

Beautiful music does help. I listened to two CDs when my mother died. One of them was "Jonathan Livingston Seagull". Neil Diamond's voice was like an anchor for me. I hadn't listened to that CD for many years but without thinking, I grabbed that CD and it worked like magic.

It's important to focus on something beautiful when you're feeling so much sorrow and pain. It's like a flashlight in a dark room.

Nothing happens to them. They just stay there.

Indeed, beautiful music, when my grandmother died few years ago, that's what I used to do and I used to watch things that cheered me up. Shows, movies. Things that I enjoyed. Because you can't feel depressed all day, you have to move on from it. and to do that, it's better to do stuff that cheers you up/enjoy doing.

To me I just try to remember the positive things that happened in their life and the good times I had with them. I know it sounds grim but sadly death is inevitable and after a bit of mourning I don't want to remain upset about things for too long so I like to think of the good times they had and the moments I shared with them. That way it is easier for me.

Sorry for your loss, Kowchi.

I lost two family members this year, including my dad due to a heart attack. My grandma was on the brink for a while but has rebounded a bit. Now another relative seems to be having trouble. This is the worst year ever.
