What does it feel like to lose a sister

Answered By: Lawrence Flores Date: created: Dec 25 2022

How it might feel after the death of your sibling – As with any bereavement, losing a sibling can leave you feeling a huge range of emotions as you navigate your way through your grief, From sadness to anger to jealousy, you may feel a number of emotions at any one time, and this can be really difficult to process.

Is losing a sibling the worst pain?

Losing a sibling is one of the most painful losses a person can experience. Why? Because sisters and brothers get it. They were there. They know your story and your back story—because they lived it with you. They relate on every level. Not even a spouse can do that.

  • When you have a close relationship with a sister or brother, it’s an amazing gift, and here’s why.
  • You have • someone you can say things to that you can’t say to anyone else.
  • Memories from the beginning, in good times and really awful times.
  • A person who shares mutual understanding and the compassion you require to breathe.

• an abundance of humor—that means someone who gets all your jokes that no one else gets. Younger siblings often stand back, so that an older sibling can move forward. I write. I speak. I succeed. Because I had a sister who let me shine. In honor of my sister Rose Marie—my better half.

Is the death of a sibling traumatic?

After losing a cherished brother or sister, surviving children may feel adrift and lonely. They may give up, not enjoy life or, in extreme cases, feel they want to join the sibling and think about their own death. Sometimes they may feel suicidal or even talk about suicide.

Answered By: Cameron White Date: created: Dec 24 2023

Tips from other young people who’ve been through this –

Don’t wait and don’t hold back. You don’t know when the last minute will be. In lots of different ways, a little bit at a time, let your sibling know how you feel

Thank you for / I’m sorry that / I forgive you for / What I’ll miss most is / I’m proud of you for If it’s hard to say it, write them a letter, an email, a card, a story or a poem. Draw a picture, make a collage, find songs that say it for you. You might feel embarrassed. It might be a bit uncomfortable. It will probably make you both cry. You just might be glad later that you did.

Just hang out together. If you can, make the most of the time you have with your sister or brother, you will probably really cherish this time. Try to think of things you can still do together. You might be able to play a board game, watch a movie, or read the paper or a book to them.

Make some one-on-one time. There might be lots of people around helping and wanting to spend time with your sister or brother. But it’s okay to demand a bit of alone time with them. You will value this time in the future.

Throw a farewell party? If it’s their style, and if they feel up to it, you could think about having a ‘living funeral’ – where the guest of honour gets to be there. Get their family and friends around and have a party, say nice things, eat some food, drink some drink and crank up the iPod.

11 Ways to Cope With a Sibling Leaving for College

  1. Ease the transition by distracting yourself. Moving into a dorm takes a lot of work and you can really make a difference by helping your sibling with the moving process. Unload boxes, help them set up their stuff, and decorate the space with them. Plus, by keeping yourself busy, you won’t have time to feel sad or upset.
    • It’s also important to be respectful of your sibling’s wishes. If they want to do something on their own, don’t try to force your way in.

  1. Plan a fun summer or Christmas break. While you may not be able to see your sibling every day or every weekend, they’ll have breaks and vacations throughout the year where they can come back home. Think about fun things you can do together and make plans with your sibling for when they do visit home.
    • For instance, you can find out what movies are coming out in the winter so you can make plans to go to the theaters with your sibling when they visit home for Christmas break.
  1. Harness the power of modern technology. Staying in touch can get tricky when your sibling moves out for college. You have your life at home and school, and your sibling is getting adjusted to their new life at college. One simple solution is to schedule a time for you to call your sibling so both you and they can plan around it.
    • For example, you could set Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m. as a regular weekly call with your sibling.
    • You aren’t limited to just calls and texts! You can use apps or programs such as Skype, Zoom, or Facetime to video call your sibling and see them when you talk to them.
    • Texts are super easy to send and you won’t really disturb or disrupt their day. Send them a funny meme that you think they’ll like. Tell them about something crazy that happened to you. Stay connected through short messages that let them know you’re thinking of them.

  1. Seeing your sibling can help you deal with their absence. Find photos of your sibling that you like or take some new ones with them. Print them out or use a photo printing service at your local pharmacy. You can also order prints online from sites like Shutterstock. Frame the photos and hang them up in your room so you can see their face every day.
    • You could also use a digital photo frame, which cycles through multiple photos that you upload to it.
  1. Reach out for help if you’re struggling. Your parents miss your sibling too. If you’re feeling especially down or you’re just thinking about your sibling a lot, try mentioning it to your parents. You can talk about how much you love and miss your sibling and it may make you feel better.
    • If you’re feeling really depressed and sad, talk to a therapist or counselor. They can give you tools that can help you cope with your feelings.
  2. Advertisement

  1. Surprise them with a little treat from home. Who doesn’t love getting a surprise gift? Find some local goodies that you know they’ll love as well as some of their favorite treats. Package them up and ship them to your sibling’s college address. Don’t tell them a package is coming so they’ll be extra surprised when they open it.
    • For instance, if your hometown is famous for its strawberry jam or your sibling enjoys a special brand of coffee, you could send it to them to brighten their day and let them know you’re thinking of them.

You get a glimpse into the future. When your sibling goes away to college, you’re actually really lucky. You get a chance to see what’s potentially in store for you. That can make you even more prepared for the experience than your sibling was. Think about how exciting it’ll be when you get your chance to go away as well. It may make you feel a little better about your sibling leaving. Advertisement

Stay busy to help distract your mind. Join a new club or volunteer at a local charity. Try out a new sport or start reading a new series of books. Find activities that you enjoy so can have some fun and keep yourself occupied, which can help stop you from feeling sad or lonely.

Fill the space left by your sibling. Take on more responsibility around your home and ask your parents if they need help with any household chores. If you have younger siblings, try getting closer to them so they have someone to talk to and look up to. With your sibling gone to college, now is a great time for you to step up and help fill the void they’ve left behind. Advertisement

There are actually a lot of benefits when your sibling leaves home. You don’t have anybody you have to share a bathroom with or fight over a remote with. Your parents will have more time and attention to give to you. When your sibling moves out, there are also a lot of benefits and positive changes that you can enjoy. Try to enjoy them!

Decorate and fill the space. If you shared a room with your sibling, or if you get to have their bedroom when they move out, think of all the possibilities! You’ll have some extra space and privacy. Take some time to decorate and arrange the room just the way you like it. Advertisement

How does it feel to have a sister?

3. Sisters Make You Feel More Loved – The Bringham Young study also found that people with sisters report a greater feeling of being loved than those without sisters, This was especially the case for adolescents who are going through a rocky period in their life.

When you lose a sibling you lose the past and the future?

When a sibling dies, the world changes in a heartbeat. Oftentimes when such a loss occurs, others fail to recognize that the surviving sibling faces emotional battles on many fronts while working through the loss. Largely ignored, surviving siblings are often referred to as the “forgotten mourners.” Within this group of surviving siblings is one that is unique—the adult survivor who lives away from home and is mourning the death of an adult sibling.

In the case of an adult sibling, attention and words of comfort are usually aimed at the parents, spouse and children. The Loss of History Each family has its own special history and the shared bonds that are a part of that history. When a sibling dies, the bonds are shattered and the history forever has a void that cannot be filled.

As they grow, children develop certain characteristics and talents. Brothers and sisters tend to complement each other by developing a balance of interests in different areas. However, surviving siblings will need to redefine their roles in the absence of this relationship.

Survivor guilt is normal. Siblings usually have a relationship where they seek to protect each other. Despite the physical distance that may separate them as adults, this need to have provided protection weighs heavily in the aftermath of the loss. Guilt about how the relationship was maintained is common. So often as adults, the sibling relationship has changed from younger years. Each travels a separate path, and sometimes communication is lacking and ambivalent feelings about maintaining the relationship surface. No matter how good a relationship may have been, the survivor often believes it should have been better. Anger over a new role within the family often occurs. A surviving sibling may now be the one expected to care for aging parents, and he or she may have to step into the role of guardian for nieces and nephews. Remaining family members may look to surviving siblings for guidance. All these situations are possible reasons to feel anger over a sibling’s death. Fear of mortality. When a brother or sister dies, it is natural for the surviving sibling or siblings to look at their own lives and what their deaths would do to the family. Surviving siblings may find positive changes within their lives. These may include greater emotional strength, increased independence, and a soul-searching reexamination of spiritual beliefs. Some survivors feel the need to make a change in their life’s work, such as becoming a therapist, or working to effect a change in the area that took the life of the sibling. Even when a sibling has died, a connection still remains. Surviving brothers and sisters think about them; talk about them; remember them at special times such as birthdays, holidays, and death dates; and may create a memorial of some type. This connection with the sibling who died does not have to be given up to move forward in life.

Understanding from Others Society often encourages bereaved individuals to feel guilty for grieving too long. This failure to receive validation of their grief can cause siblings to hide their feelings, causing a type of depression with which they may struggle.

If the surviving sibling is married, stress may also be introduced into the spousal relationship. Individuals grieve differently, and the spouse may be bewildered and even unsympathetic that this loss is causing so much sorrow in their own family. This situation may provoke comments such as, “Why are you so upset? You haven’t been close to your family for years.” While this may sound reasonable, the emotions of grief and mourning are seldom reasonable—or even rational.

Spouses may need to be told how they can be supportive. One woman simply asked her husband for a hug whenever she felt especially sad about the death of her sister. College Students Who Lose a Sibling Those away at college in an unstructured environment often find the death of a sibling particularly difficult at a time when they find themselves extremely stressed.

This may be the first experience with death within the family, and upon returning to college the bereaved sibling tends to find little support. Instead of helping, these habits hinder the ability to confront the loss. Many colleges have counseling and support centers. Consideration also may be given to delaying college for a period of time, reducing stress by decreasing difficult activities, and enjoying creative pursuits that provide positive ways of releasing frustrations.

Senior Citizens Who Lose a Sibling Too often no support or comfort is offered and the loss is not acknowledged. In reality, whether the sibling who died is nine or 90, the loss still wounds the heart. When a senior citizen is grieving the death of a sibling, their grief is oftentimes compounded by the fact that perhaps a spouse, other family member or good friend have preceded the sibling in death.

  1. This leaves a void for receiving comfort, and sharing memories with those who knew the sibling well.
  2. Finding Support Many siblings find help by talking with others about their brother or sister.
  3. However, even good friends can quickly become uncomfortable with the subject, often at just the point when their support is most needed.

Adult siblings (18 and older) are encouraged to attend meetings of The Compassionate Friends. A number of Chapters of The Compassionate Friends have separate sibling subgroups for 14 years of age and older. The national organization provides information through private Facebook groups, chat rooms in its Online Support Community and the national website.

TCF National Conferences allow another opportunity for bereaved siblings to bond. Often, simply finding another bereaved sibling with whom to share concerns and feelings provides a path toward healing. Adult siblings may be living in areas where no one knew their deceased brother or sister—or even of their existence.

This can be painful at a time when the surviving sibling longs to share memories. When your parents die, it is said you lose your past and when your child dies you lose your future. However, when your sibling dies, you lose a part of your past, your present, and your future.

What do you call someone who lost a sibling?

Bereaved is an adjective describing people in deep sorrow at the loss of a loved one. For some, being bereaved helps them leave the sadness or release themselves from it by experiencing it for awhile.

Why does grief hurt so much?

Why grief is so painful – and critical to the human race Whether we’re dealing with the death of a loved one, the pain of heartbreak or the end of a career, loss can feel unbearable. But grief is a natural part of life with deep roots in our evolutionary history.

  • Grief begins in the brain, but it affects the whole body.
  • The moment we learn of our loss, our brain.
  • This heightened state puts extra stress on our organs and bodily functions, and we would usually experience it for a few minutes to 48 hours.
  • But after bereavement, the effects offor months.
  • Even years later, being reminded of our loss can retrigger the response.

Though we’ve been led to believe grief has a trajectory of five stages – denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance – it’s really a non-linear process and its emotions can overlap, fade and reappear over time. Psychologists believe these feelings associated with loss evolved when we started to survive by way of collaboration and community.

  1. In the beginning, we yearn for what we’ve lost, which would’ve encouraged us to look for missing members of our group.
  2. Later, we become more ruminating, as our brain turns toward protecting us and our group against future losses.
  3. In becoming a social species, we started to form deep, emotional attachments.

By their very nature, these relationships have to be meaningful – to forgo the pain of grief, we’d also have to give up our ability to love.

What is a beautiful grieving quote?

Many people are inspired by the wisdom in the words of others – here are quotes by well-known identities, and the not-so-famous, whose thoughts can guide the way we view our own circumstances.

“When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure.” Author unknown “If tears could build a stairway,and memories a lane, I’d walk right up to Heaven and bring you home again.” Author unknown “Although it’s difficult today to see beyond the sorrow, May looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow.” Author unknown “Grief is itself a medicine.” William Cowper “Memory is a way of holding on to the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose.” from The Wonder Years “The risk of love is loss, and the price of loss is grief – But the pain of grief isonly a shadow when compared with the pain of never risking love.” Hillary Stanton Zunin “You cannot prevent the birds of sorrow from flying over your head, but you can prevent them from building nests in your hair.” Old Chinese proverb “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.” From a headstone in Ireland “No one ever told me that grief felt so much like fear.” C.S Lewis “Grief is not a disorder, a disease or a sign of weakness. It is an emotional, physical and spiritual necessity, the price you pay for love. The only cure for grief is to grieve.” Earl Grollman “Nothing that grieves us can be called little; by the external laws of proportion a child’s loss of a doll and a king’s loss of a crown are events of the same size.” Mark Twain, ‘Which Was The Dream?’ “There’s a bit of magic in everything, and some loss to even things out.” Lou Reed, ‘Magic And Loss’ “There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love.” Washington Irving “There is no pain so great as the memory of joy in present grief.” Aeschylus “Tears are the silent language of grief.” Voltaire “Happiness is beneficial for the body, but it is grief that develops the powers of the mind.” Marcel Proust “There is no grief like the grief that does not speak.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow “Grief can’t be shared. Everyone carries it alone; his own burden in his own way.” Anne Morrow Lindbergh “Grief is the price we pay for love.” Queen Elizabeth II “Given a choice between grief and nothing, I’d choose grief.” William Faulkner “Grief changes shape, but it never ends.” Keanu Reeves “If you’ve got to my age, you’ve probably had your heart broken many times. So it’s not that difficult to unpack a bit of grief from some little corner of your heart and cry over it.” Emma Thompson “You don’t go around grieving all the time, but the grief is still there and always will be.” Nigella Lawson “Grief is like a moving river, it’s always changing. I would say in some ways it just gets worse. It’s just that the more time that passes, the more you miss someone.” Michelle Williams “Grief knits two hearts in closer bonds than happiness ever can; and common sufferings are far stronger links than common joys.” Alphonse de Lamartine “The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.” Marcus Tullius Cicero “Let no one weep for me, or celebrate my funeral with mourning; for I still live, as I pass to and fro through the mouths of men.” Quintus Ennius “Tears are sometimes an inappropriate response to death. When a life has been lived completely honestly, completely successfully, or just completely, the correct response to death’s perfect punctuation mark is a smile.” Julie Burchill “You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest that it leaves your arms too full to embrace the present.” Jan Gildwell “As long as I can I will look at this world for both of us. As long as I can I will laugh with the birds, I will sing with the flowers, I will pray to the stars, for both of us.” Sascha “When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.” Kahlil Gibran “There should be a statute of limitation on grief. A rule book that says it is all right to wake up crying, but only for a month. That after 42 days you will no longer turn with your heart racing, certain you have heard her call out your name. That there will be no fine imposed if you feel the need to clean out her desk; take down her artwork from the refrigerator; turn over a school portrait as you pass – if only because it cuts you fresh again to see it. That it’s okay to measure the time she has been gone, the way we once measured her birthdays.” Jodi Picoult “Grieving is a necessary passage and a difficult transition to finally letting go of sorrow – it is not a permanent rest stop.” Dodinsky “Tears have a wisdom all their own. They come when a person has relaxed enough to let go and to work through his sorrow. They are the natural bleeding of an emotional wound, carrying the poison out of the system. Here lies the road to recovery.” F. Alexander Magoun “When someone you love dies, and you’re not expecting it, you don’t lose her all at once; you lose her in pieces over a long time – the way the mail stops coming, and her scent fades from the pillows and even from the clothes in her closet and drawers. Gradually, you accumulate the parts of her that are gone. Just when the day comes – when there’s a particular missing part that overwhelms you with the feeling that she’s gone, forever – there comes another day, and another specifically missing part.” John Irving “Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak whispers the o’er-fraught heart and bids it break.” William Shakespeare “No farewell words were spoken, no time to say goodbye, you were gone before we knew it, and only God knows why.” Author unknown “I’m gone now, but I’m still very near, death can never separate us. Each time you feel a gentle breeze, it’s my hand caressing your face. Each time the wind blows, it carries my voice whispering your name. When the wind blows your hair ever so slightly, think of it as me pushing a few stray hairs back in place. When you feel a few raindrops fall on your face, it’s me placing soft kisses. At night look up in the sky and see the stars shining so brightly. I’m one of those stars and I’m winking at you and smiling with delight. For never forget, you’re the apple of my eye.” Mary M Green “There are three needs of the griever: To find the words for the loss, to say the words aloud and to know that the words have been heard.” Victoria Alexander “You will lose someone you can’t live without, and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly – that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.” Anne Lamott “Tears water our growth.” William Shakespeare “Why does it take a minute to say hello and forever to say goodbye?” Author unknown “What soap is for the body, tears are for the soul.” Jewish proverb “Perhaps they are not stars in the sky, but rather openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy.” Eskimo legend “When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure.” Author unknown “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.” Author unknown “Dying is nothing to fear. It can be the most wonderful experience of your life. It all depends on how you’ve lived.” Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross “The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross “Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.” Dr. Seuss “Although it’s difficult today to see beyond the sorrow, may looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow.” Author unknown “If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane, I’d walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.” Author unknown “We’ve shared our lives these many years. You’ve held my hand; you’ve held my heart. So many blessings, so few tears – yet for a moment, we must part.” Author unkown “A beautiful colourful rainbow could not exist if it were not for the rain of a grey day – it was born from the very droplets of it.” Author unkown “In times of grief and sorrow I will hold you and rock you and take your grief and make it my own. When you cry I cry and when you hurt I hurt. And together we will try to hold back the floods of tears and despair and make it through the potholed street of life.” Nicholas Sparks ‘The Notebook’ “Without you in my arms, I feel an emptiness in my soul. I find myself searching the crowds for your face – I know it’s an impossibility, but I cannot help myself.” Nicholas Sparks ‘Message In A Bottle’ “It’s so curious: one can resist tears and ‘behave’ very well in the hardest hours of grief. But then someone makes you a friendly sign behind a window, or one notices that a flower that was in bud only yesterday has suddenly blossomed, or a letter slips from a drawer. and everything collapses.” Colette “Time heals old pain, while it creates new ones.” Proverb “These days grief seems like walking on a frozen river; most of the time he feels safe enough, but there is always that danger he will plunge through.” David Nicholls ‘One Day’ “A life with love will have some thorns, but a life without love will have no roses.” Anonymous “Love is like standing in wet cement, the longer you stay the harder to leave and you can never leave without leaving your marks behind.” Author unknown “I don’t know why they call it heartbreak. It feels like every part of my body is broken too.” Chloe Woodward “The grave itself is but a covered bridge, Leading from light to light, through a brief darkness!” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow ‘The Golden Legend’ “In my dream, I was drowning my sorrows But my sorrows they’d learned to swim” U2 ‘Until The End Of The World “Every heart has its secret sorrows which the world knows not, and oftentimes we call a man cold, when he is only sad.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow “Forgiveness is healing, especially forgiving yourself.” Alyson Noel ‘Evermore’ “Of all Sad Words of Tongue or Pen, the Saddest are these, “It Might Have Been.” George Ade ‘More Fables’ “A ton of regret never makes an ounce of difference.” Grenville Kleiser ‘Dictionary Of Proverbs’ “That song is sweetest, bravest, best, Which plucks the thistle-barb of care From a despondent brother’s breast, And plants a sprig of heart’s-ease there.” Andrew Downing ‘The Sweetest Song’ “I still miss those I loved who are no longer with me but I find I am grateful for having loved them. The gratitude has finally conquered the loss.” Rita Mae Brown “Grief is what I feel when someone passes away, Grief is what I feel when I am concerned, Grief is what I feel when I have done wrong, Grief is what I feel when some accident happens, Grief is something that all people have gone through.” Brandi Reissig “Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die, so let us all be thankful.” Buddhist quote “Words have the power to both destroy and heal. When words are both true and kind, they can change our world.” Buddhist quote “Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” Buddhist quote “May all beings everywhere, Seen and unseen, Dwelling far off or nearby, Being or waiting to become, May all be filled with lasting joy.” Buddhist quote “Honest listening is one of the best medicines we can offer the dying and the bereaved.” Jean Cameron “People touch our lives if only for a moment, And yet we’re not the same from that moment on, The time is not important, The moment is forever.” Fern Bork “Our grief is as individual as our lives.” Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross “We must know the pain of loss; because if we never knew it, we would have no compassion for others, and we would become monsters of self-regard, creatures of unalloyed self-interest. The terrible pain of loss teaches humility to our prideful kind, has the power to soften uncaring hearts, to make a better person of a good one.” Dean Koontz ‘The Darkest Evening Of The Year’ “People touch our lives if only for a moment, And yet we’re not the same from that moment on, The time is not important, The moment is forever.” Fern Bork “We get no choice. If we love, we grieve.” Thomas Lynch “Say not in grief ‘he is no more’ but live in thankfulness that he was.” Hebrew proverb “Everything that has a beginning has an ending. Make your peace with that and all will be well.” Buddhist saying “We need never be afraid of our tears.” Charles Dickens “Life is not the way it is supposed to be. It is the way it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference.” Virginia Satir “The melody that the loved one played upon the piano of your life will never be played quite that way again, but we must not close the keyboard and allow the instrument to gather dust. We must seek out other artists of the spirit, new friends who gradually will help us to find the road to life again, who will walk the road with us.” Joshua Loth Liebman “Those things that hurt instruct.” Benjamin Franklin “The fact that something has happened to a million other people diminishes neither grief nor joy.” Author unkown “I will welcome happiness for it enlarges my heart; Yet I will endure sadness for it opens my soul. I will acknowledge rewards for they are my due; Yet I will welcome obstacles for they are my challenge.” Og Mandino “Some people come in your life as blessings. Some come in your life as lessons.” Mother Teresa “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.” Helen Keller “We do not have to rely on memories to recapture the spirit of those we have loved and lost – they live within our souls in some perfect sanctuary which even death cannot destroy.” Nan Witcomb

How do I tell my sister I miss her so much

Answered By: Seth Miller Date: created: Nov 25 2023

“I miss your laughter, your smile, and the way you made everything better. I miss you, my dear sister.” “No matter how much time passes, the pain of missing you never goes away.

Don’t wait and don’t hold back. You don’t know when the last minute will be. In lots of different ways, a little bit at a time, let your sibling know how you feel

Thank you for / I’m sorry that / I forgive you for / What I’ll miss most is / I’m proud of you for If it’s hard to say it, write them a letter, an email, a card, a story or a poem. Draw a picture, make a collage, find songs that say it for you. You might feel embarrassed. It might be a bit uncomfortable. It will probably make you both cry. You just might be glad later that you did.

Just hang out together. If you can, make the most of the time you have with your sister or brother, you will probably really cherish this time. Try to think of things you can still do together. You might be able to play a board game, watch a movie, or read the paper or a book to them.

Make some one-on-one time. There might be lots of people around helping and wanting to spend time with your sister or brother. But it’s okay to demand a bit of alone time with them. You will value this time in the future.

Throw a farewell party? If it’s their style, and if they feel up to it, you could think about having a ‘living funeral’ – where the guest of honour gets to be there. Get their family and friends around and have a party, say nice things, eat some food, drink some drink and crank up the iPod.
