That's a very nice memorial for your parents Victoria. I'm sure they love it. Time moves very fast in Heaven so it'll be no time at all until you're reunited.  I'm so sorry. I lost my Mom 2/10 then my only child, Candace, 4/09/10. I just came home from spending the Christmas holiday with her three girls. They were 8, 7 and 2 when she left. My life is so sad w/o Candace in it. I have good memories. I have her girls, albeit, there's no comparison. Lord please comfort Victoria and all who've lost someone. Please make me stronger.

Today, knowing it would be the toughest, most emotional day since losing my parents, I made it my mission to create a little Christmas memorial / shrine to my them, to honour their memory and keep their spirits shining with us for Christmas.
I bought two nice pillar-candles - red for Mum and green for Dad - and two candle holders and decorations from a craft store - ribbons, garlands, etc - to put around them.
A few special pictures, some festive greenery added, and there it is...
They are now taking pride of place in our living room, in front of our Christmas tree.
There is a deep pain in my heart that I can't hug them or tell them I love them anymore. It hurts like a cramp in my chest, and makes it difficult to breathe at times. But I'd like to think I feel their presence, their spirits with me, imparting all their positive qualities to me, and reminding me of all the good things they taught me about life, reminding me to keep smiling, keep looking forward to the future and keep appreciating each present moment while I still have it.

Hi everyone I am new here. I lost my mom two months ago. The pain is unbearable. People say it gets better with time but it doesn't seem like it. I feel as lost now as the day I lost her. Any suggestions that have helped any of you get out of this horrible depression. I know my mom wouldn't want me to dwell on this but it's easier said than done.

Time does seem to enable one to learn how to cope with the lost of one's parents - but it does not erase the emotional attachment and/or deep rooted love we have for our parents.    I long many a days to just to be able to hug and talk with my parents.  Time has helped me to accept my lost but it has not helped me to forget or to stop longing for them.
