I lost my mom January 2011 and my dad 2012. My heart is aching now just like it happened yesterday. Sometimes, I am okay and like a whirlwind, my thoughts go to them, especially on holidays. It gets better, but, you never get over the loss.
Lost my dad just 1 month ago. Having a difficult time dealing with it.
This day - I am missing my parents so much!! There is a hole in my heart yearning to just hear their voice. How I yearn for the day when I will be able to see them again.
I'm so sorry Diamond. When I was about 12, I'd get angry at my Grandma and she'd tell me, "You'll be sorry when I'm gone". How true those words were, as my Mom and dad were divorced and my Grandma Billie was my Mother figure since I was 6 or 7. I thought she'd be here until I was about 30 but she left on new Years Day of '75, when I was only 17! I know she's with me by the numbers on my digital clock. I never noticed until about 10 yrs ago. She's been gone over 40 yrs. The numbers vary, sometimes in order (1234,4321. 555) It's like, "look at the clock" in my head and I know it's Grandma Billie!! It warms me. Grandma is love x 2!.
Melinda, I know it is so hard ....I know no words can relieve the pain of not having our loved ones with us. I spend moments sometimes just looking out and wondering how my life would be if my parents were still here.....I will kiss them a little longer and hold their hands a little tighter...never wanting them to go...i miss that kiss on the cheek my Mom would always give me and that big smile my Dad will throw my way.....how I miss them - so much!!
My mom's sister's name is Maedell My Mom is Jerri. They're together with my Grandma Thomas and my Mom's brothers, my Uncles, Jimmy and Charles. My daughter and brother, sadly are with them; they were too young to die
When I see those with their parents today - I do not hesitate to let them know to love them now - hold onto them. I miss my parents every day and I mean every day. Just knowing they were there were so comforting to me. Now that they are gone - sometimes, I feel alone sometimes - or not belonging to anyone. No one counts like our parents. We can get all of the love in the world but the love of our parents - we long for and miss so dearly.
