The start of it all

It started in 1994, I was 12 and lost Ed who was like a grandfather to me.  Exactly 2 years later I lost my grandfather (my moms dad) in the very house I grew up in. Two years later I lost my grandmother (my dads mom) suddenly.

Being so young I really didn’t know what grieving was.  I didn’t know someone could be so upset over losing someone plus I had school and basketball to keep me distracted.  I didn’t know there could be “good grievings”

 

18 months after my grandmother died my world was totally flipped up side down.  I learned that my beautiful, caring, and compassionate mother had passed away. (More on this in a bit)  I had a few friends/family/acquaintances  pass away after my mom passed. The years I really can’t remember exactly.

Years passed and in June 2009 I lost my little sister Katie at the age of 25. A few years later I lost my father in law Ed. Most recently about a year ago I lost my courageous godsister Amanda at the age of 30. In May of last year Uncle Bob passed away unexpectedly.

Through all of this I have learned a lot and have lived my life to the fullest. I have learned that there are “good grievings”

Cheers,

Tom
