    I’m here after suffering multiple losses. My brother passed away April 2017. I had my 16 year old dog put to sleep just before Christmas. I headed to Sydney to spend the last few weeks of my sisters life with her, she had chosen to die at home with end stage bowel cancer. One week before her passing mum had a heart attack. I spent a week going between my mum in the icu and my sister at home. My mum passed away Jan 7, 2018, 13 hours later I held my sisters hand as she joined mum on Jan 8th. I find myself in a strange new world now, half my family gone in a very short time. I stumbled upon this group and thought I’d share my story, I have great support but it’s hard for anyone to understand multiple deaths.

    Sorry to hear of all your losses - especially in a relatively short span of time. I hope you find this site helpful.
