    As I worry about what kind of world our kids

    and grand kids will continue with, I am thankful that my parents have passed and did not live to see what we are becoming. I worry about all future generations and the mess we will have left for them.

    My parents were both dead

    before I turned 30. I guess I should count myself lucky that I had them for most of my life — I'm only 34 at the time of this writing. Regardless, I miss them, and I wish that I had been more protective of them, and that they had been more protective of themselves, and that...

    My parents died three months apart in 2000.

    I feel like God left me with no one that really cares and I wish I could go to sleep and not wake up. Life is torturous to me. The pain is significant and the loneliness is deep and there's an emptiness in the pit of my stomach. I explained it by saying when my father died my...

    I Never Really Believed It

    I used to hear, at various times in my childhood, about this one's mother, or that one's father, passing away. But I lulled myself into a false sense of security that nothing would happen to MINE. Mom was healthy; Dad was always drinking steadily and heavily; apart from an almost...

    I realize now that my parents were my staunchest protectors and defenders. I think of them almost every day. Sometimes I talk to them, or remember their kindness and support. Other times all I feel is loss. My mother died in 2003. As long as my dad was still around, I was safe...

    I have never thought that such things can happen to my family. I wish my father had not done what he had done or that it can be undone. I have forgotten how we used to laugh. It is like we have never been there. Like all the memories never exist. Only this present time exists...

    I often wondered if time would heal the sadness.

    You are both in my thoughts every single day. Whether we were always able to spend the holidays together or not, the phone calls never stopped. I look at a laughing child and I am taken back years past. Until we see each other again, I miss and love you both very much.

    Actually, I miss NOT having parents.

    Oh, they were there alright, "monsters" in their own right. But if I could choose to have only one, I would choose to have a good Father over a good Mother.
