Sibling Grief – I need your help

In May, 1989, my brother John died.  He was 18, I was just shy of 22.  It was difficult navigating the world of grief.  I tried to find information on how you are 'supposed' to grieve, but there weren't many resources out there for siblings.  I went to Compassionate Friends meetings, but they were really focused on parents.

So for many years now, I have wanted to write a book dealing with sibling grief.  There are not a lot of resources out there for siblings.  Plenty for parents, but not us.

I would like to get other people who have also dealt with sibling grief to help with this project.  If you know anyone who has lost a sibling, before the age of 30, I would like to talk to them about their experiences...if they are up for it.  Please have them contact me directly at melissa52767@yahoo.com.  No I do not have any kind of book deal nor have I even pursued that yet.  I just feel this is something I have to do and the rest will fall into place.
