    Today is the 2nd anniversary of ellen_a's death (for those of you who have been posting here for a while), and I woke up to find I'm taking it harder than I did the first anniversary... Could use some good thoughts from anyone with some to spare as I try to make it through today...

    Many thanks,
    kate_a (ellen_a's twin sister)

    Oh, Kate, we're so sorry. Our sympathies to you and to your family.

    We remember Ellen fondly and her name comes up once in a while.

    Hang in there. You and your family remain in our prayers.

    It's hard to believe that it has been 2 years already. I think of your family often and wonder how you are; I lost my dad about 6 months before Ellen's accident. You all remain in our thought and prayers.

    When I'm searching for a topic, sometimes I'll run across one of her posts. She always had the very best ideas and suggestions. I've often thought of you and wondered how you were. I can't imagine your pain. Saying lots of prayers for you and your family. :hugs:

    Wow...2 years:(. :hugs: Kate. I am sorry that I just found this thread today. I still think about Ellen when I need suggestions on what to do with some of my students. She will forever be in my heart and her great suggestions will always be used in my classroom.

    :hugs: kate_a. I'm also sorry I didn't see this post earlier. I know how hard it is to lose someone you love. June 21 was 24 years since my mom died. I'm sure its even harder since she was your twin. :hugs:

    Anniversaries are always going to be difficult...as are those moments when you are reminded of her by the way someone laughs or a sunset she would have enjoyed or a picture... What a lovely tribute to your sister, though, that so many here still remember her. I can only imagine that those who knew her in person were even more deeply touched by having had her in their lives. Wishing you and your family well.

    stg, this July will be 5 years for my mom. I can't believe it, sometimes it seems like yesterday. I miss her every day and I agree with you, it is just as hard now as then, but it is different. WE were very close.
    We would finish each others sentences, my sister said we were joined at the lip!

    I'm sorry for your loss. I lost my son four years ago and I can pretty much count on the anniversary of his angel day to be horrrible. I hope on all of the other days of this year, you can remember all of the good things you shared without being overwhelmed by grief. Losing someone you love doesn't mean you lose that love so it's only natural to have bad days even after two years. Best wishes and you'll be in my prayers.
