Sibling Loss / Re: It has been a while...
« on: September 11, 2007, 04:57:39 PM »
Middle Sis,
Yeah, my brother cared a lot for his little brother and sister. I have one other older brother, but he is engaged and works at night, so I only see him on the weekends. I wish I got to see him more.

I am terribly sorry that you had to lose both your siblings at once. That must be really hard. I hope that things have been easier since then. If you ever need to talk about anything, I'm here.

Yep, I'm still in marching band. And I hope that Mark's proud of me, because I've been working my hardest (although it still looks kinda rusty) to honor his legacy that he left behind. The band teacher told me that I remind him so much of Mark by the way I talk, my facial expressions, and my pride for marching band.

I'll be thinking of you too, and I hope that you'll remember that they'll love you always, and are proud of you for being so strong and helping people who have been through what you have.

Allie :P

Your brother sounded like a good guy. I'm sure he was. I hope that you'll always keep his memory alive and I know he is so proud of you for dealing with his loss in a positive way. We can't mope goes on..and so will we.

My brother was, in my opinion, a really good person. He was only 17 when he died. It's really ironic, he died of a heart condition on Valentine's Day, when his heart was his greatest asset. He always cared what I thought and what I did. He'd help me with any little project and he would help anyone in need.
I guess all these feelings are coming back because I recently joined the marching band at my highschool. Mark absolutely adored marching band and everything that came with it. He loved the practices and the competitions. I've just recently started remembering the times I spent with him at practices. I had a breakdown at practice on Friday and it came all of a sudden. No warning, it just came out, like a dam had broken and my tears overflowed. Mark's old uniform is hanging in a frame in the band room. He has a special award that they give out every year. It's called the spirit award. I can hear him now, "An award? After me? You people are too kind!!" and then he would probably do a sarcastic wink and point his fingers as to say, "Booyah!" which was his favorite word. After practice, my parents had heard about my little breakdown. My mom said, "You know, if Mark were still here, he would be at every practice after work every day? And he would be right there with you at competitions. He would have been so proud of you. Can't you feel his spirit in you?"
 And I can. He was someone you wouldn't forget, not even for a lifetime. Someone who would always be happy to lend a hand, give a million dollar smile, and give a hug. His hugs were the best.

A favorite memory?'s hard to say. He always played Santa Claus for me. He was a lot of's hard to pick just one...

Wow, I wrote more than I had planned. But, that's Mark. My brother, the one I'll always love.

I'm sorry to hear about your brother. What was his name? What was your favorite memory of him?

-Allie :P

I'm so sorry. Sibling loss is super hard, and I know how you feel. I lost my brother at age 8, so I can feel your pain. Although I'm sure you were probably closer with yours than I was mine. I'm thinking of you, and you can talk to me anytime.

Wow. It has been almost 2 years since I've been to this site. Life got hectic and everything, so I suppose it slipped my mind to visit.
I'm not sure if any of you remember me, but I'm Allie. I started to visit this site about 5 years ago when my brother died. I was only 8. I was also pretty educated about technology, so my mom showed me this site. My brother had heart complications since birth, and had over 5 surgeries in a 17 year life.
Mark and I were not close in age, but we were pretty close considering the age difference. He was a good brother. He cared so much for his little sister, and his little brother. I was the youngest, and he was the oldest. He kept me believing in Santa, the Tooth Fairy, and such as that. He loved his family...they were his main priority. He loved to go to church. He was loyal to his friends, and everyone that knew him was influenced to live life like there's no tomorrow. Mark was a happy-go-lucky kind of person. He made such a difference in my life. He never gave up, and he would always make you feel better. I wish I could have known him longer than 8 years...and only about 4 of those years were conscious. I wrote a lot about him after he died..I still do. I've made teachers and family and friends cry because of what I've written about him. Now I've got pictures, memories, writings, songs, and stories to remember him by.

I know I have written that time and time again, but it's true. Mark meant so much to me. He's my inspiration.
