Ибо так возлюбил Бог мир, что отдал Сына Своего Единородного, дабы всякий верующий в Него, не погиб, но имел хизнь вечную.

Top 10 Sob-Worthy Literary Deaths {And 8 Teary-Eyed Honorable Mentions}

Do I really need to warn you that there are obvious SPOILERS in here?

Really big space to give you time to back out of this.....

Here are 10 of the characters who had me crying over their death. *Book listed is story they died in, but not necessarily the only story they were in*

1: Beth March from Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

2: Karen Ivankov from Whispers of Winter by Tracie Peterson

3: Matthew Cuthbert from Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

4: Edward Travilla from Elsie's Widowhood by Martha Finley

5: John Brooke from Little Men by Louisa May Alcott

6: Chad Stewart from Not My Will by Francena H Arnold

7: Alice Humphreys from The Wide Wide World by Susan Warner

8: Fairlight Spencer from Christy by Catherine Marshall

9: Tom Chilton from Pollyanna Grows Up be Eleanor H Porter

10: Laura Mayfield from The Confession by Beverly Lewis

Honorable Mention: Fan in Millie's Fiery Trial, Patience in Treasures of the North, Grandpa in Across the Years, Annika in Hidden Among the Stars, Baby Darya in Twilight's Serenade, Lady Dedlock in Bleak House, Mrs Hamley in Wives and Daughters, and last but not least Marmee in Jo's Boys (she actually dies before that but the mention is enough to reduce me to tears apparently)

That might not be the exact order according to tissues used, but I tried. {And yes, I have shed tears for each mention here...Lots of tears.} Did any of your most emotional character deaths make my list? If not, share who yours is in the comments.
