Grace, I lost both of mine in about 18 months back around 2004 and 2006. Dad slowly from mesothelioma, too slowly. Mom from a broken heart. I came to realize that dad hung on as long as he did because he couldn’t leave mom, and she died because she couldn’t be left behind. It took me years to start to get over it, but really I’m not completely over it yet and probably won’t be. My faith says they’re better off, but it offers no comfort. They were the most in love couple I had ever seen. I know what you feel. I also urge those who still have one or more parents to give them a hug. You just never know.
