Juliann Remembers her nephew and brother

On Sept. 21, 2012, my nephew and his wife of 7 years, were on their way home from celebrating their wedding anniversary. They were only 5 minutes from home when they were struck head on by a drunk driver and killed instantly. They leave behind a little boy. Our family''s grief is beyond words. As if this tragedy wasn't enough, my brother who was the father of my nephew, died just three weeks later. He had been battling stage 4 pulminary hypertension, and needed a heart and lung transplant. He did not meet the criteria to receive them but was doing well on medication. That is up until his son and daughter-in-law were killed. His will to live deserted him. How do we even begin to get through this holiday season? Many in the family have received grief counseling but feel that it is not as helpful as speaking to someone who has suffered, as well.
