I'm sorry to you all that are dealing with the pain and suffering everyday . I'll be 30 this December and I lost my mom when I was 14 years old to lung cancer and and my moms mom (my nana) in 2007 to breast and pancreatic cancer and my dad this past march to esophageal cancer. My family has drifted apart from each other over the years and it kills me everyday. I feel alone and empty inside every day and I have no one to talk to or tell me they love me. I have two kids and a fiancé but it's a different kind of love that I'm missing. On bad days I just want to call up my mom and go over to her house and have her hug me and say everything will be ok, but I'll never get to do that. No one understands that unless they have gone through it. I can't find any peace and I feel like I'll never truly be happy without her. And when my fiancé And I fight and he sleeps on the couch I goto bed alone feeling so unloved and like no one would even notice if i was gone. I don't know how to keep moving forward and I don't think it will ever get better

I am sorry for your loss. Death is not natural. The Holy Scriptures supports this. Ecclesiates 3 verse 11 says "Everything he has made pretty in its time. Even time indefinite he has put in their heart, that mankind may never find out the work that the [true] God has made from the start to the finish". God has promised to grant everlasting life to those who obey him. He will reverse the process of aging as well as return to life millions of people who have died! If you would like to learn more, you can contact me. Miss Sylvia

Kimberley, I understand you perfectly. Sometimes I can't even listen to my friends complaining about their parents, when all I can think about is that I'd give anything to get them back.

I feel completely apart from all my friends when it comes to this. I lost my father and my mother when I was 12 and 18, respectively, and I'm an only child with no living grandparents. I don't know anyone personally whose parents have passed away... But reading your comments makes me feel less alone!

Does it ever get easier? 30 years to the day my Dad died I was told to let my mom go.  So, 1-3-82 for my Dad and 1-5-12 for my mom.  It was the hardest decision I had to make.  I didn't want to hear it, feel it etc.  I didn't think there were others who understood what I was going through.  Thank you for being here!

I lost both parents last November (11/17/2010). They were killed in a car wreck. The driver of the other car was high, driving approximately 110 mph. He hit them from behind. They were killed almost instantly. The all happened directly in front of our home. I am the only child. I joined this group because I want to learn from others in a simple situation and offer anything that I can.

My mom died when I was 9, she overdosed on methadome, and my dad died a cupple of mounths ago he was shot as a result of being drunk. For me right now alot of my desions are going to affect the rest of my life. So even though it is really difficult I always try and cuntinue to do the next right thing and live day to day. I try to keep up with my responsibilitys and ask for help when I need it. I don't feel like I can afford to slack off, and blow off responsibilitys because it would have a long term inpact on my life. Sometimes it is hard to trust people, and to be hurt easily but something I learned from my familly dying is you dont always get second chances, so I always try to tell people that I love them and that I care about them.

I try to make sure to call my two brothers at least once a month to touch base (we all live in different states). I bring up at least one of the positive aspects of my parents, and just keep up with their lives. I also have found myself relying on my in-laws as parental guides.
