Looking back over my old post from the 1st page in this thread... I can't believe it's only been 3 years since my dog was put to sleep! It feels like she's been gone forever.

You have my utmost condolences. :( I have a younger brother myself, and I would be absolutely devastated if something like that happened to him.

my uncle died not quite a year ago from cancer and my cousin died because of meth about a month ago. Those are the 2 most recent deaths I have had to deal with.

Yesterday died my uncle Marian, he was 73 and mom's first cousin. He bled from his anus. The family suspects he had an embolism. I saw him for the last time when I was like 12 from what I remember but my mom knew him well.

My grandmother in 2007. She died of pancreatic cancer. I was devastated when she died. See, I was out in St. Louis at the time, and on the 4th of July my dad called me, telling me that she passed away. I went to the funeral, and walking back to her house, that's when "it" started again.

Last year there died some guy who was mom's workmate and he always helped me with my computer when it needed to get fixed. He had stomach cancer.

A boy who I went to school with died when I first started going to college. He was on his way to visit his girlfriend.

My uncle got murdered when I was 19 years old. He was shot and killed and the murderer just hid his body in the woods. That was a big blow to our family, I was really close to him.

My grandma died a few years ago after suffering from a stroke and just moving into a nursing home. I was really close to her because she lived with me through my whole life. Things haven't been the same for me since.

A co-worker I worked with in the infant room at a daycare in High River died while she was sleeping.

Very few. There's not much crime and dramatic incidences where I live. I'm bad at thinking about people who have died.. but I think it was because of Alzheimers and cancer. Alzheimers is horrible.. My grandfather may have been one of the best who has ever lived :(

My grandpa on my dad's side died when I was in 4th grade. He had heart & some other organ problems towards the end.
My grandma on my dad's side died a few years ago. She had some kind of cancer.
I wasn't close to either of them. I knew other people who died but I didn't know them well.

There hasn't been a lot of death in my family (thank goodness) but my grandmother (father's side) who was in her 90's, died about a week before Mother's Day, and my uncle Jackie, who hasn't been doing well for quite some time, died this summer. My parents have been taking me out more than usual this summer and I wonder if that has anything to do with it. I hope neither of them are dying! Maybe it was just my imagination but my mother seemed sort of upset on Thursday even though it was my grandmother's (Mom's side, of course) birthday, and she went to get her a cake. She usually saves me a piece, but this time she didn't...my grandfather (Mom's side, my grandfather on my dad's side passed when I was around 8) has dementia, maybe that has something to do with it.
