My heart goes out to you - I had 2 hives year before last and lost one of them during the winter and I didn't discover it till this time of the year. I was devastated and I felt bad because I saw that they had starved to death. However I did learn a lot of things and in raising bees I think you just learn so much from your own experiences. I had apparently allowed my strong hive to rob them of their honey because I didn't have the sense enough to reduce the entrance. And I still feel guilty about it.

Keep going - don't blame yourself - get yourself some more bees this spring and situations like this will make you a better beekeeper - I felt that it made me a better beekeeper - yet there is STILL a lot I have to learn. That is why a forum like this one is so VALUABLE to people like me.

Write everything down too - that helps to look back to see what you did earlier.
