I am on holiday

On the day of our flight three days ago, my eldest sister passed away unexpectedly. It's so unfair and horrible. She was so special and a lovely lady. She was 59, had a weak heart, was very overweight and diabetic.

Right now Mr Fizz, his folks and Miss Fizz are at church. I'm at home and I can't stop crying. I need find strength from somewhere because I need to make happy memories of our holiday.

  • FizzyLiz,

    My heart goes out to you {{{{hugs}}}}, a sudden passing of a loved one is such a shock. Cry all you want, cry for the good and happy times.

    The pain will get easier, if you can, focus on miss fizz when she is awake and allow yourself time to grieve when she is asleep. Her hugs and unconditional love will get you through.

    My nephew age 30 died suddenly 3 weeks before Xmas and it still feels unreal.

    Hope you are able to enjoy your holiday{{{{hug}}}}

  • I'm so sorry, Fizzy Liz. I feel for you. I lost my sister nearly four years ago, same age 59, unfair so young, my sister tragically died of anaphylactic shock. I miss her every day. She has missed becoming a grandma, which makes me so sad. Cherish all the happy memories you have and be glad she was in your life. X

  • Dearest FizzyLiz I send you lots of love, hugs, kisses and strength. Your pain is heavy for your loss of your darling sister but she would want you to find the strength to still have a lovely holiday which in itself is a memory for Miss Fizz to treasure all her life. Cry as much as you need and think that for every tear your sister is with you in spirit. My deepest condolences. Mx

  • I'm so sorry, what awful tragic news. You've been so looking forward to this special holiday. I'm glad you are with your family, and away from the pressures of home and work, and can allow yourself space and time for grief - it's like a tidal wave, horrendous and sudden, all you can do is roll with it for now. Much love xx

  • Dear FizzyLiz I was so sorry to read your news. I do hope you can feel the warmth and support from this forum to help you through the raw feelings a sudden death creates. As others have said do what you need to do and accept the support from your family.

    It's hard to believe now but the worst feelings do subside in time. Xx๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ”†๐Ÿ’•

  • I am so sorry FizzyLiz, that is an awful thing to happen at any time, let alone when you are on holiday. This is the holiday that you had been looking forward to, isn't it? The one where the rest of your family get to meet with Little Miss Fizzy. I am sure those memories will eventually come to the fore as you look back in time, but at the moment you will need to deal with the sudden passing of another family member.

    I am thinking of you and hope you do manage to enjoy spending time with your loved ones as you say goodbye to your sister.


  • FizzyLiz I'm sending you a big hug and my condolences. Xx

  • My sincere condolences to you FizzyLiz and your loved ones. This is too cruel. May your sister rest in peace and over time when your heart has time to heal you are able to enjoy cherished memories you will have.

  • I'm so sorry for your loss FizzyLiz.

    Acknowledging the sadness you are feeling is likely to be beneficial in coming to terms with your bereavement (and those close to you).

  • Oh no, Fizzyliz, I don't know what to say. I'm so sorry for your loss :-(

  • Dear Liz, I am so sorry for your loss.

    Take some time to grieve for your sister - you will find the strength to create some lovely memories, but you will need to take time for yourself as well.

    My thoughts are with you and your family, sending you love, hugs and most of all strength, Liz xx

  • I so feel for you fizzyliz. I know what it's like to lose a sibling as I have lost two , my younger sister at only 50, and it leaves a gap in your life which is difficult to fill. It will get better with time and gradually the memories you have will be the happy ones and not those of illness and loss. Take care of yourself and let Mr Fizz and Miss Fizz love and care for you. Look after yourself.๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’

  • So sorry to hear of your loss FizzyLiz x

  • So sorry for your loss, a special big sister leaves a huge hole in your life when she's not there. Cry when you need to, and talk about how you are feeling, don't bottle it up. You will find the strength to go on, we all do, and you are a mum now so you have your beautiful little girl to help you to find joy in life. Take care, I'll be thinking of you x

  • Dear FizzyLiz

    When my dad died, we were due to go on holiday the next day. My daughter was six and we decided to go anyway because after all there was nothing to be gained from staying at home. It was the best decision we made. Each day we had a chance to remember good things about him. It didn't stop the sadness - it takes time to do that - but it did, without a doubt, help us to remember with love, to to understand with a child's perspective that we're very, very sad for us but don't need to be sad for the person who died - children are so resilient and keep your perspective. It's good to talk about it with us, with your husband, with your daughter - you don't need to keep it in, you don't need to be strong (that also comes with time). You don't have to pretend everything is fine, because right now it isn't.

    Take every opportunity to laugh and enjoy yourselves: each time you do remember that your sister would be happy to see it.

  • So sorry to hear the sad news fizzy Liz Thinking of you.You are in my thoughts and prayers.C x

  • My deepest sympathy FizzyLiz, so hard to lose a sibling. The pain does get easier with time but at the moment that seems impossible I know. My loving thoughts are with you. xx

  • Love and light to you and your family!

    Stay strong and keep your mind fixed on all the positive times you shared. No one can ever take that away from you.

    She is in your heart and will always be a wonderful part of you.

    Big hug!!!
