Loss

Post  Keziah Rowley on Sun Jun 13, 2010 3:37 am

Saturday morning there was a really bad fire at my friend helens apartment. I grew up with helen and her family.

Helen lost her 13yr old son, 7 year old daughter and 5 year old son. (all her kids)

she also lost her sister Yordonis' 6 year old daughter along with helen and yordonis' 22 year old sister yerusalem.
the kids were having a sleepover...

helen along with yordonis' 5 year old son escaped.

June 12, 2010 Fremont neighbourhood of Seattle, WA 10am. RIP

what a sad terrifying traumatic way to die.

I'm not in a good place in my RL. I just got out of the hospital friday morning for suicidal depression anxiety reasons, and the next day get hit with this loss.

I hope that Helen her brother Daniel, sister yordonis, mother selas, and last surviving child are okay and have many people to help them through this terrible tragedy.

Wow, that's absolutely terrible. Such an awful way to die, and for her to lose all of her children is just heartbreaking. As Wes said, I hope that you and Helen can recuperate.

Her family has her on a family-imposed suicide watch. My sister has been with her and her family. Being suicidal myself, I havent found the strength to see her yet, its too painful. There are services on Friday i think. I'm just glad that we have a very big tightly knit Eritrean/Ethipoian community here in Seattle. She has lots of support around her.

I hope she and her family can gather the strength they need to get through this. I worry now that Helen may feel like she has nothing left to live for (her children are/were her life), and might end up going back to drugs and end up in prison again. I fear my sister will go back to using exstacy cannibis and alcohol on a daily basis (Helen's sister who died was her best friend). Maybe Helen's family and my sister can find comfort in each other. I dunno. I'm still in shock. I have panic attacks everytime i set foot in a bathroom. Thats where they found all five lifeless bodies. Helen thought they were right behind her running out of the house. the fire spread too fast and the 5 remaining had to flee. Why they would flee into the bathroom (no windows) instead of a bedroom i will never understand, but the chaos you do odd things.

Knowing they suffered is what hurts the most. The screams people said they heard will live with them forever, and even though i was not there to hear them, i hear them every time i close my eyes. I havent slept since i found out about it.
