    my uncle died suddenly of a heart attack in mid september 2020. my auntie, his wife, died suddenly of a heart attack in early january 2021. my auntie and i were very close and always had been since my birth. we spoke on the phone at least once a day and we grew even closer in the last few months, as i supported her with losing my uncle. at this point, i still find myself reaching for the phone to call her...and then i get a jolt feeling in my chest, as i remember she is gone. gone, so final. my uncle and auntie had just celebrated their 43rd wedding anniversary. they were the most stable people in my family, i spent a lot of positive time with them growing up. they were very kind, giving people. i miss them, especially the close relationship i had with my auntie.
    i decided to look online for support groups as my husband told me that he was tired of hearing about my grief. i understand that he just doesn't know what else to say to me when i experience painful memories. i feel alone. i suppose i am looking for others who might be experiencing grief due to the sudden loss of loved ones.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. This is the right place to be. Grief has no time limit. When you lose someone close it feels like part of i left with them. I pray u have strength to get through this everyday
