Reviews for Holes in the Holidays

You are spot on with your sentiments. It is very hard to lose a brother. I've just done so only recently, and there are times, even now, when I have to restrain myself from calling his old phone number or send a joke or picture to his old email. We weren't as close as Fred & George, sadly, but it is still a very hard thing to deal with.

I know one day my sisters and brother will all be reunited in Heaven along with the rest of the family. The fact that I cannot join them right away, as I have a task to perform for a few years (at least) after my own death as a Reaper is a burden which their joy lessens for me and I know that one day I, too, will be reunited with them.

Beautifully written - I am in tears after reading this. I lost my Grandad in June 2007 8 days after my birthday. He was my best friend and the person I always turned to for advice. Even now the hole he left behind is there and although people always say it gets easier I don't think that's true. I think you just become more accustomed to living with the hole, but it never fills and I certainly haven't found it any easier. The one comforting thought is that he is no longer suffering and that he is safe in heaven and I will see him again some day God willing. Your story is so true and so carefully written - many of the thoughts Charlie expresses are thoughts that have passed through my mind in the passing years.

Thank you for a wonderfully reflective piece of writing.

This was really sad to read. But great nevertheless.

The first ones are always the hardest and even though, as time goes by and it kind of gets better-it doesn't change the fact that you still miss those who aren't around to share the moment with you or the rest of the family.

Again, I enjoyed it, a lot.
