We will always miss our parents.  They are our core foundation in our life.  I miss my parents dearly and can relate to the pain all of us feel with the loss of our dear parents.   Our memories are often filled with the most joyous aspect of our relationship with them.  We miss their hugs and kisses and long to hear their voices - oh, how we miss them dearly.

Thanks Kimie. It is true, it does get better. Smile when you think of all the things you shared with your Mom. You'll find honor in those memories instead of sadness. Just think of what she'd say to you when being so sad. Mine would say, don't do this to yourself! Get off your butt and enjoy the short ride of life!!

Sending all of you much love.  It's been 2 years since I've lost my mother and it still has its heartbreaking moments when I'd just like to give her a call to share some news or receive a hug from her.  I miss her so much.  It's tough.  So, I understand.  Big hugs to you all. xx

I lost my Dad to Alzheimer's. A vivacious man with no other physical problems. I watched a bright mind fade away. He wanted to die with dignity with my help but of course there was nothing I could do. Very sad to say the least. He was my Dad, my best friend, my life coach, my rock, my advisor. We did everything together.

In a way I was relieved that he passed away as I knew it was what he wanted. So now I stay busy and still miss everything he was to us all. I was blessed with a true blooded Dad. I honor his memory by doing all the great life lessons he taught me. I still hold him in my dreams and yes, even laugh about the funny stories we shared. Honor him by getting yourself up and out. I know he'd want this. Life should go on.

My Mom is enjoying her time with my Grandma Thomas-her mom, my Uncles Jimmy, Charles and her sister

You are most certainly welcome! .  It is with discernment that one should take into account being prepared for the time most  do not want to face, the death of our love ones.   Tad, I do not know if you are a Bible reader - but, if you read Proverbs 3:13-18 - it shows you the practicality  in using discernment in ones' life and how it is more precious then corals.  I hope it may help you to see just how valuable our having discernment helps  If you have any additional concerns or the need to just discuss - please feel free to contact me.

Thank you for your comment Diamond. It is really important to have all arrangements in writing before anything happens. I lost my father 6 years ago, but my mom and stepfather are getting older. He recently had a health scare that had me thinking. If anything happens, I'm the one who would have to care for them. All my siblings have families of their own. I read this article about caring for aging parents years ago. Now it feels more relevant for me. Hopefully it can help some others as well.
