I'd like to request a prayer for myself, if possible, I lost my brother last night and I am not in a very good place right now between toxic family members and being completely numb and in denial my mind is still on the this has to be some kind of nightmare that I cannot wake up from or this has to be some sick joke.
I'm not even attending his funeral so I can't even say goodbye to him because of said toxic family and I don't want to enter hostile territory of family and want to avoid conflict. So, I'm all alone and I'm not dealing with this really well at all atm.

Jill I'm very sorry for your loss, and even sorrier to hear a family situation has left you alone at such a sad time. You and all your family will be in my prayers.

Hi Butterfly, sorry to hear of your loss, you will be in mine and im sure everyone heres thought and prayers. losing someone close takes time to heal from. the grieving process is different for everyone and takes a while to let go sometimes. dont beat yourself up because you cant attend, you can still say good-bye in your own way, and if its a burial perhaps you can visit at a later date and sit for a while when its just you around. if not, im sure he will still hear your heart and understand. allow yourself to grieve, allow yourself to heal. let him see you in a good place.

Sorry for your loss Butterfly, I lost my only brother 20 years ago at age 23, I still think about him daily. He came to me after passing and said he was in a place of pure love as I'm sure your brother is also. Sending some love over from Oz.
