I have lost many loved ones in the past but the one that hit me the most was when my grandmother passed away she was my best friend, I feel that I am lost without her.

Well umm everyone is talking about the loss of someone or any person.... But i would like to say that a greatest loss that i have ever experienced is... The loss my inner, my confidence. I was like i am a live dead body. I lost myself and that was the great lost foh me because when i lost myself then i started losing everyone who were close to... I started blsming myself for my loss and for everything that i lost... But now i raised myself and much confident tham before... I know its kind of stupid to talk of it but losing ourelf is also a Greatest Loss😦😓

My greatest loss is twofold. In July of 1994 my brother died unexpectedly. My father died in December of the same year after a prolonged battle with cancer. My mother, my sisters and I were all devastated by both losses, but more so by my brother’s death, as it was totally unexpected. The loss of my brother was not only a loss for my family, but also a loss for society. My brother was a hematologist. He was the Director of the Sickle Cell Research Center, which was renamed in his honor after his passing, and Associate Dean of the School of Medicine at Duke University in North Carolina. He, and the team that he led, isolated the gene that causes sickle cell disease. Sickle cell disease is a debilitating condition that only affects those of African-American or certain Mediterranean decent, but primary African-Americans. The isolation of the affected gene is the critical step in finding a cure for sickle cell and any other genetic disorder. To date, there is no cure for sickle cell disease. I truly believe that my brother would have discovered the cure or a much more effective treatment by now. I miss my father and brother every single day, even now over two decades later.
