Death is the hardest thing to get over especially if it’s your family members. In the course of my life, I’ve had four people passed away. My mother 's dad and my father 's two brothers and sister died. I really didn 't know much about my dad 's sister but, she died from a brain aneurysm. My dad and his siblings always said how pretty and smart their older sister was. Death can be devastating to a person 's life because they 'll never get to see or talk to them ever again. My grandfather spoiled me with everything I could ask for. Whenever I needed something I called for my "pawpaw". My grandpa was scared for life when he got into a terrible car accident. He was in the hospital for weeks trying to regain his strength and memory. When my

He then got pneumonia and then the doctors thought he was all better so they sent him home. And then a couple days later he got in really bad shape again and then when they brought him back to the ER, the doctors said there was nothing else they could do, so they put him in hospice. He was so strong in hospice, but you could just tell everyday that he was getting worse and worse. Then it was a Friday night, and the doctor said that he doesn’t think that he will be around for much longer, said he might not make it through the night.
Generally speaking, humans cannot be entirely prepared for dying or the death of a close person in their life. Some people say that facing death gives a person both opportunity to grow mentally and the strength to carry on in life; however, it can be too much to handle alone. Help can be needed not only from relatives and peers, but also from the experts. Strong grieving is more than usual, but life must eventually carry on. Death can be both interesting and frightening at the same time because nobody knows what happens afterwards.
One person I wish I could see again is my pawpaw. My pawpaw lived in Greenville, MS and worked at the Delta Regional Medical Center. when he is around his grandchildren he acted like a big child. He was one of the best checkers in the world and he loved to play old-school games like Pacman and Mario. Everytime we went to visit, he would always have some new jokes that would have me and my brothers laughing so hard we would cry.
I’ve gone through hardships and trying to keep my own family together. Someone very dear to my family has passed on and it was one of the most horrible things i’ve experienced as a young child myself. I was 12 too when i’ve experience loss, at the time I couldn’t cope I was in denial and agony. But eventually I had to learn to grow up and accept what has happened and help my family in the process.
After a death or loss of something close, people usually react similarly by going through the five stages of grief. These stages include denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. During a death of my Great Aunt, my family went through the stages of grief. I was close with her when I was younger, but I do not have many memories I remember with her so I did not experience much grief. On the other hand, my Great Uncle went through a lot of grief since she was his older sister.
I remember when I was going to start school. The school I went to was called Lincoln Elementary. It was just a short four streets down from my house. I was a little nervous and slightly scared to go. I didn’t want to have to leave home and be gone for so long.
It was up to me to carry this grief on my shoulders. “Grief is really just love with nowhere to go,” this is a quote by Melissa K Moriarty. Going through a death can be tough, especially when you're use to their presence everyday. This helped shape me into the selfless person I am today.
“Your grandma has cancer,” These four words were very difficult to swallow at a young age. Dealing with death so young can be very confusing and difficult to cope with. Not only is losing a family member tragic, but losing a family member who you cared so much about can really take a toll on your life. I know it took a toll on me when I lost my grandmother. It still does till this day.
“Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality”-Edgar Allan Poe. All great horror stories represent that quote. There is one story that does not. “The Monkey’s Paw” by W.W. Jacobs is not a horror story because there is not a monster, it is not believable, and it does not have a creepy setting. Classic horror stories usually have some sort of a monster in it, whether the monster is Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde or Frankenstein.
This time was very difficult in my life and another close friend was ill at the time as well. I was grieving heavily that one of dear friends was not in this realm anymore, I was very sad. Death for me have occurred only once with me through out my life until the a year removed from high school. The ones a I grown accustom to love didn 't even have a health status of life threatening.

According to Dora Carpenter, “The loss of a loved one can leave you broken and heartless”( np). “The loss of a loved one can also help people to find and awaken their inner selves” (Carpenter np). In the book How we Grieve Relearning the World Thomas Attig gives multiple first hand account of what people have
The death of family and friends is something that everyone deals with at some point in their life, and something that everyone deals with in a different way. It can teach a person valuable lessons about life and relationships. It can also change the outlook we have on life, and the deaths of two students in my high school this past year did just that. Towards the end of my junior year, I was sitting in my high school commons as I did every morning, when word started to spread that a senior in my school, named Jack, had collapsed at our local community center the night before. Jack was an acquaintance of mine that I had known better when I was younger, but we had not crossed paths in quite some time.
When an adverse situation occurs, such as the one of losing a loved one, a person must know how to react, overcome and finally live on with the situation and not react in a wrongful- harming manner the next time this or any other kind of adverse situation happens again. But of course not everyone knows how to handle this type of situation in his/her life. Various numbers of people living the loss of a loved one whether its physically or simply loosing someone from a breakup, can and will be in a state of depression for a period of their life, making the person not capable of seeing that life does keep on going whether or not their loved one is around or not. The person living this type of adverse situation can have their mind blocked due to
I always knew deep down, that my mum was not going to make it; however, knowing this did not make it any easier. She died on December 4th 2008. I could not come to terms with her death. Not only was I left with many questions but I also felt like I should have spent more time with her.
When you hear the word death or you hear that someone has died today in the news or on the television I know a lot of people think “Man, I feel sorry for the family that they have to go through that.” or they thank god that it was not them or their family members.” Sadly though people try to push away death and push away the fact that everyone dies at one point in time. This is even truer when they witness their own family member in the hospital with a critical condition that the doctors cannot fix even with modern medicines on the doctor’s side. Another such time would be when a person’s family member is diagnosed with an incurable sickness that is fatal.
