I too was also orphaned on New Year's Eve, 2010.   My Father passed away first on July 21, 2010, 3 days before my birthday.   I watched him take his last breath in his hospital bed after battling colon cancer for over a year.  My whole family was with him when he went.   On July 11, 2010, 10 days before my Father passed, my Mother had a heart attack and nearly died, but survived.   She lived for 5 more months and passed away on 12/31/2010, New Year's Eve.  She went into the hospital on 12/27, my brother's birthday and found out she was losing blood.   She was given blood and underwent several tests, but the doctors could not find out why.  On New Year's Eve, she called everyone and told them she was going home on New Year's Day because the tests she had done could not find anything negative.   The nurse took her out in the hall to take a walk, and she collapsed.   By the time my siblings and I got to the hospital, they were perfoming CPR.   She passed 45 minutes later.  Her funeral was on my sister's birthday, 1/6/11 and her birthday was 1/10/11.   She would have been 72.   I miss both of them terribly.  I know they are in Heaven together watching over their family.   I will pray everyday for everyone who has experienced what I have in 2010.
