  1. I lost a daughter, but she lives with me every day of my life. I have also lost a brother, whom I do not miss as much. The intensity of the bond determines the stance. In this case, one just says you ‘had’ one.

  2. Uh, no. You still have a sister. You don’t disown your parents because they fall off their perch, do you? I suppose the death of a sibling (which hasn’t happened to me, because I’m going to be the FIRST in the trio to go dammit) is different, but in the circles I spin in one still refers to a deceased relative in the past tense, just like they would do with anybody else who had died.
