Poster Children for Tragedy
Our father was murdered in 1991. Senseless. I don't think I have ever gotten over that day. He was the best father a daughter could have. We had a great relationship. I will never forgot what he brought to my life. I still cry to this day when I think of him.
Our mother died suddenly in June 2011. Her death was horrible. In hospital for minor stuff and died from a ruptured ulcer. Don't understand why the doctors didn't see this catastrophic event about to happen. She was my best friend, North Star. I loved her very much.
We feel cheated because of these events but grateful that we had them for the time we did. We are the good people they molded us to be. No one can ever prepare you for the loss of your parents ever and no one can ever take that relationship from you if you were fortunate to have a good relationship with your parents.
We are orphaned adults now as difficult as it is. Grief takes a long time. This is a new life now and working through it takes time. Where this road leads us we do not know but hopefully we will find peace and happiness again someday.
God bless to each of you who have lost your parents. My heart goes out to you.
