Tragic deaths compound our pain. (Published 2/22/2011)

Q:

Anonymous, a Tributes.com visitor from NC writes:

“I lost my father tragically a few months ago. I was a witness to the crime. I am struggling. I put up a good front to others but on the inside I am barely making it. I cry every day. It is hard for me to talk about him. I don't want anyone to talk about him because it makes me sad. I shy away from my daughter when she brings him up. I know that he's gone but for some reason, I am having a very hard time accepting it. I often feel that this is a dream and I will wake up. I miss him so much. I need help, someone to talk to...are there any support groups for family members that have lost their loved ones tragically?”
