My father has had a stroke and a few heart scares,the stroke aged him ten years he's 76 he is still active but the day draws near when hes no longer physically with us,my father is also a best friend and it will rip my heart out when he goes the thing now is to make what time left quality time,I still remember my granparents I close my eyes I can remember their faces and remember the times we had together so in a sense they are still with me just not physically,my father will be always with me also.

I wish I could hug you after reading that. That is unbelievable and I am so sorry for your losses. I can not even begin to imagine that much loss in such a short time. I can't even imagine it if it weren't in such a short time. That is a lot of family to lose and we don't really ever consider burying a sibling let alone having to bury more than one.
Sometimes you wonder why so much devastation happens in some families while others seem to have very little. It means a lot to me that you would share such a painful situation with me so that I would not feel alone. That says tons about who you are on the inside.
I will keep you and your sister in my thoughts and prayers.
I too would love to give you a long hug, Your feeling are from deep in the soul and I can tell you are truly a wonderful person that cares about others and like many of us is in a world we are not of but passing through, some simply go through the journey where others like yourself feel compassion and love for others.
My sisters memorial was last night and I thought of your words and they did mean so much to me, I said a prayer for my sister, family and friends and one for you, a person I have never met buy actually cared about my loss and feelings.
You truly are a gift to this terrible world and I pray your life and journey through this land reflects the goodness you deserve. Bless you for being one of the few that has the power and ability to make others feel better in such unselfish ways!
-Love always, Phil
Please U2U me when you need an ear and a shoulder. I usually check in at least a few times a day even if I don't post and will be honored (after what you have done for me here) to listen to you talk, scream, and/or rage. Sometimes it just helps to get it out (like I did yesterday) regardless of who is listening... and it am a good listener if you find yourself in need of one.
I am blown away by your candor here and want you to know that you didn't do it for nothing. As much as you never want others to hurt like that... it is comforting to know you are not alone in your messy, turmoil of feelings.
I can't thank you enough, but I will send prayers and strength your way in hopes that you and your sister will get a break from hurting. You two definitely deserve it at this point.
I am here.
