I had an aunt, uncle, grandmas, grandpa, and great-grandmas all die. I was sadden by their deaths yet I moved on and accepted their passing.


Thanks.

To tell the truth, I don't know if I should be happy or sad. She's been suffering from memory loss and didn't recognize people around her at all. So I guess I'm happy that she doesn't have to keep going thro that, however at the same time I can't say that I'm happy about it.


Is it Alzheimer's?


I don't know if it was Alzheimer's, but it was something similar.


Dementia or no?

My Grandmother passed away, it disrupted the whole flow of my father's side of the family. They did not recover from it well, and my father is still recovering in my opinion.

My little brother died in 2009, it was really sudden. My mother took him to the doctor because he wasn't feeling well, and she came back home crying. I don't remember what it was called that caused it, some sort of heart condition. He was 13 but mentally he was only a baby and couldn't talk, so he was never able to communicate if something was wrong. At the time I thought I had taken it well, but I don't think I ever really got over it, then again maybe I'm not supposed to?

Yeah.

I was on a family vacation in the philippines, we were also celebrating my parents' 25th anniv. Everyone was so happy together, the atmosphere was amazing. Then a week later, my grandpa on my mom's side fell ill and didn't show any sign of getting better. 2 weeks later, he died. It was a very emotional moment for all of us, especially my mom. I didn't cry at all because I was so emotionally confused and overwhelmed.

I've only seen my dad cry twice. First time was when his dad was visiting and staying over at our house. His dad was looking at some old photos of his wife and my dad saw him crying so they spent some time together. Second time was when my dad received a call from his brothers from the Philippines saying that dad died. It's so painful seeing such a strong person like my dad just break down.

My uncle died five years ago and my cousin died last year.
On the first anniversaries of their deaths we held a party of some sorts
We prayed for them and ate lots of good food!
On November 1-2 we make a shrine in honor of the dead

Sorry for your loss.
My grandfathers, 1 grandmother, 1 cousin. I was never really attached to the grandparents, my family has been "broken" since before I was born, I barely knew two of them, the other one of them, I got to watch suffer a slow, agonizing death over the course of about 7 months from complications of a broken hip and diabetes. My cousin's death was sudden, car wreck, when I joined the local rescue squad, my commanding officers had worked his wreck, the reports preceding the wreck indicated that he was doing between 90 and 120 mph when he stuck a tree, killing him instantly. I shed 7 tears at the funeral, after my sister called me a heartless bastard. I wouldn't call it coping, but my tendency toward emotional suppression does not afford me tears.

Sorry for your loss.

I was never really attached to my grandfathers, but when my grandfather died from stomach cancer, I fell into a depression unknowingly. It's pretty easy to just think you're fine and go doing stuff day by day until you realize you aren't happy and you don't want more from life, y'know? Depression is a hard thing to get over and takes time and effort, but it's worth it when you're finally feeling happy again. I say just take it slow and don't be tough. If you're sad, be sad. If you wanna' cry, then cry. Better to let it out than to hold it in, which I know sounds like what everyone says but everyone wouldn't be saying it if it wasn't true. You're going to cry and you're going to be sad and it may seem like you'll never be happy again, but you will. As long as you let yourself be hurt a little then you can always heal it up.

Actually I got a text message from my dad today, he said that my grandma had died.


You have my condolences. My grandmother passed away last year. Grandfather had died years before and I still can't believe that one since that was sudden. We had a warning before grandmother passed because she got ill, Cancer, grandmother refused treatment because she was late 80s and her arthritis was starting to make it really difficult to walk. she had no intention of being wheelchair and bed bound. My mother had a bit of trouble accepting her wishes but in the end it was respected.

A lot of people passed when I was younger few cousins and a uncle and about a couple years ago my great grandpa who I had spent a lot of time around with when I was like 5-13 years old I moved away from where he lived but he was always struggling around as he was around 86-87 at the time so when his time passed im pretty sure he died with a smile on his face because he had a good life from as far I could tell so the best thing I felt to do was to keep moving on.

My grandparents all died years ago. How little I cared was somewhat concerning.

Hmm... just about everyone in the older generation has died in my family now, I think only one grandparent is left.

Pretty much all that is left is about half of the parent generation, and then my generation which there are only... 4 of us I think. Only now starting to get the generation after mine with my cousins kids.

Pretty much a family of like ~20 people I think now.

I've also lost quite a few close friends who could be considered close enough to be family. I've also been close to enough to certain friends families to feel the loss when they lost someone.


So in simpler terms:

Yes. I've been through a lot of family deaths.

As for dealing with it... well the closest member of the family to pass away for me was my grandfather, which it didn't really hit me until about a week after I think. But even then I just cried for awhile and that was about it.
