  1. Our son died, then my youngest nephew, then the two older ones…they died one day apart. So out of five kids, in our very small family, my daughter is the only one left.

      • Unfortunately, those were just the kids, my husband died as well, among others. It’s a lot, believe me.

  2. Was this recent? Either way, so sorry for your loss. I lost a step-mom, sister, and nephew on my dad’s side in a car accident once, it was awful. Especially since the little boy was only 5. We weren’t extremely close at the time due to distance, but it still hit me hard.
