Lost both mom and dad

by Marc
(Houston, tx)

I lost my father 5 years ago to cancer and it feels as if it was just yesterday. I was diagnosed with lymphoma during the same time of his fight. Unfortunately he did not make it and only lasted 3 months from the day of his news. He was such a strong caring man filled with joy and pride for his life, family and friends.

My mother lived a life of great sadness, she was the eldest of 6 and was beautiful, smart, caring, giving and most importantly kind to all. She gave even when she had so little to give spiritually; her life was about example and teaching. She suffered her first stock at the age of 45, it left her with initial the last 20 years of her life she lived with such great attitude. However in the end ver vascular condition took from us. Although I know she is no longer in pain, I'm selfish and want her back. I want my daily morning conversation back.

My parents are gone and even though I am a grown man, every time I think of them both it takes me back to the days when we all laughed together. I lost mom in February 2012 and I just can't get past it...

I am also a grown man and both my parents are gone of cancer. My father 9 years and my mother it will be one year on saturday, I miss them more than words can express. I feel like an orphan. I want them back i just can't understand why i had to lose both of them when they were fairly young and had a lot of living to do. I am in a severe depression and function like a robot. I never thought it would hurt so much. U R not alone in your pain
