  •  Yes ! I will never forget when my 13 yr old cousin (9+ / 0-)

    died as a result of an auto accident.  My aunt and uncle went through hell and my aunt told me that even now, 30 yrs later, the loss  and the pain is still there..she has just learned how to live with it.

    But my young cousin's death profoundly affected my granddad who had been ill. He sat in front of us at the funeral. All of these many years later, I can still hear my then 85 yr old granddad mumbling to himself and sobbing and saying..

    It should have been me, I am old and tired and sick, it should have been me, not this baby girl.
    It was heartbreaking.

    A few months later, we lost Grandpap,I think it was all just too much to bear and his heath went downhill even more after the death of my cousin.
