I lost both parents. And my husband in less than 3 yrs. My dad passed away just this January. He was my best friend. A kind, generous,sweet,smart, funny man. I had the privilege of staying with him at the hospital, taking him home, caring for him in the last year of his life. I got to tell him how much I love him, thank him for all he did for us. And I was there when he passed away, sitting beside him. He suffered so much in the past three years. But he did it with grace, courage, faith in God. I miss him so much. This is so hard. Im so blessed to have have had this remarkable man for my dad. My heart feels like its just breaking into pieces sometimes. Thank god for my brother and his family. My son, his dad. My sweet neighbors--who've been there for me for the past 12 years. I love them like family. And all my precious friends. Diane at Hospice, you have helped me so much. You've become a precious friend, your beautiful on the inside and out. Your strength and faith have inspired and strengthened me. I miss you daddy. Ill love you forever.

Dear Jeannie,I know exactly how you feel.Both my parents and my husband died within 17 months.My dad in Dec.2009,my mom 7 months later in June 2010 and my husband 11 months later in May 2011.So many deaths so close is beyond comprehension.I was still reeling from one death to the next.The most devastating was my husband's death.I grieved so hard and so long that I didn't get out of the shock stage for my mom and dad until over about a yr and a half after my husband's death.This year I cried so hard for mother's and father's day.Like most of us I felt I did not spend enough time with them.I found out guilt is part of the grieving process.We can't change anything but we can know that they did know we loved them.Thankfully,I always said,"I love you" when I left them and before I got off the phone.I am beginning to realize that was the most important thing I did.I loved them and they knew it.GOD send you strength and peace.HE will help you through this.I keep all of us in my prayers.

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your father, he sounds like a remarkable man. It is reassuring to know he had faith in God, no doubt he is one with him now. I hope you can find comfort in knowing he is not suffering any longer, and he will never know what it is like to suffer again. You will see him one day. Keep living your life in his honor. Prayers are with you.
