    Oh Kat, I am so sorry. I'm sending you and your brother and your SIL so much love.
    You are an amazing sister and support. Please know we are all here to listen whenever you want or need.
    It brought tears reading your post. The love for those little twins comes through so strongly. They were so wanted and loved! I am just so terribly sorry for this loss.

    I have been thinking about you the other day, remembering that you too lost your parents at a young age.

    I relate to the question of how much death one can handle. I have buried my everyone, family and others.

    For me, what was helpful, in a weird way- but still helpful- was accepting it as part of the "meaning" in my life. I was there in the last moments for many of them, for some through the entire journey, so I felt like I was escorting them to the brink of life. Put that way, it's an honor. It shows a glimpse of reverence behind the loss, and for me, that makes the loss easier to integrate into my experience here.

    I know a history professor who told me about how Egyptian pharaohs were kept in close connection with death in this and that way, about death being part of their daily lives, and I think (don't quote me), rituals/rites they were subjected to in order to know death up close. It makes sense- who better to rule over life, than him who has seen it from its threshold?

    I don't know what special purpose your own many loses have for you, but you are inquisitive and open minded, with enough of a sunny disposition to not wither in the face of such challenges- and I think that may be what makes you "the right person" to be acquainted with transience. There's a profound wisdom to it I'm sure, that's being revealed to you because you have the capacity to bear such a "gift", if that makes sense.

    I'm truly sorry for the loss both you and SIL are experiencing. It takes something huge to bear them with love and compassion, and you possess it.

    I just don't know what to sat, Kat. So much anguish and heartbreak. Life is just not fair at times. Wish I could take some of your pain away and that of your SIL and brother. I am so very very sorry that you and your family are going through this. Wish there was some way that I could help. Please try and stay strong. Sending you big hugs. xx

    Wow, just had a chance to read all your responses, a bit overwhelmed tbh; thank you all so much for your kind words of support, sincerely.

    My brother and SIL are doing surprisingly well considering; my SIL is so strong! Same for my brother, still in good spirits despite his diagnosis and now this loss.

    And surprisingly not in any pain, despite the tumors in his liver, stomach and lungs,,etc.. He's very very weak though, it's difficult seeing him, but I'm staying strong or trying to.

    Anyway, thank you all again so much, this forum gets a bit of flack sometimes for being harsh, but boy you all have hearts of gold! xx
