Here is a list of resources I have found that may be of assistance to you and your Loved Ones as you go through your journey. Please remember that the hard days will ebb and flow. I had a really hard time again three years after my Beloved Dad died, and two years after my Beloved Mom died. So keep this list handy!!
I particularly love to follow the grief accounts on Instagram. They always seem to appear in my Instagram feed on a day when I am hurting more than usual. They usually help me reset so I can go on with my day.

Surviving Sibling Loss: The Invisible Thread that Connects Us Through Life and Death by Dr Dawn Diraimondo
When author Dawn DiRaimondo, PsyD, lost her brother in 2004, she found only one book on sibling loss. So, she wrote the book she wished she had then.
Surviving Sibling Loss: The Invisible Thread that Connects Us Through Life and Death is the gold standard of grief books, helping not only people who are grieving but also their therapists, partners, and friends better support their loved ones. The chapters are deliberately short and full of easy-to-find resources, and the book can be read cover to cover or picked up and put down again. This structure aids those who are struggling, who fatigue and lose focus easily under the weight of their grief. Surviving Sibling Loss on Amazon
Opening Up to Grief: A Surviving Sibling’s Journey with Loss and Love by Janice Jernigan
A book for surviving siblings, those that love them, and those that are there to professionally guide them through the grief and loss process.
A family experiencing the loss of a child goes through a journey of life altering heartache. However, while much attention is put on the grieving parents, the siblings, particularly if they are young, are often somewhat overlooked. After all, they may be “lucky” to be too young to really understand and remember, and perhaps the memories of those dark days will fade for them in time.
In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. Siblings, particularly those under the age of five, are the “forgotten mourners”. But they do mourn, and they carry the trauma of that early experience well into adult years – whether or not it has surfaced in tangible ways just yet. Opening Up to Grief on Amazon
Sometimes called the “forgotten mourners,” bereaved siblings have a significant — and frequently unmet — need for support. Although some believe the loss of a sibling is somehow less intense than the loss of a child, a parent, or a spouse, this is not at all the case in a general sense. Individuals may have more or less intensity around any loss they experience, depending on their own circumstances, but siblings often feel a devastating loss. In many cases, people have never known a time when their siblings were not a part of their lives, and for this reason cannot conceive of them being gone. This tremendously confusing loss may turn one’s sense of reality upside down and lead to deep and challenging questions of trust, faith, and identity.
A Community for Remembering and Sharing Sibling Relationships. Many of us have lost a sibling and it is life changing. This is your space to preserve memories and capture precious moments.
The Surviving Siblings Podcast
In this show, I share my journey about losing my brother to homicide and how I realized that there is little to no support for surviving siblings. This podcast is for you whether you have lost a brother or sister or if you are wanting to understand and support someone who has. I also dedicate this podcast to my brother, Andreas, as he was never afraid to speak his truth and tell his story. I hope this helps you and you know that you are not alone.
Inner Trailblazer – Janice Jernigan
At Inner Trailblazer, Janice helps surviving siblings – and others who feel stuck in their grief – feel seen and acknowledged, gain insight into their own personal journey, and spark a level of healing that is truly transformative.
