I understand and feel your loss. I am sincerely sorry. My beautiful daughter left me 7 months ago tomorrow. She was 26 years old when the cancer spread from breast to spine, attacking the brain. The nightmare of seeing her terminally ill for 8 months was paralyzing. I get asked how are you doing, and I don't know how to answer that question without getting upset because I am heartbroken.

My father passed away when I was 4. My mom started selling her clothes so that my sister and I would have something to eat. She sold almost all her stuff. Growing up without a father was tough. I was abused so badly. I grew up with so much anger because of the abuse. Now that I am 26 and married, I am still depressed and I get angry so quickly. I got married to someone with anger issues too. So it's either a fight or I am crying. I have thought of committing suicide several times, but till now I don't know what's keeping me alive. Reading other stories made me realize I could get help and be a better person.

I lost my Dad on 1/2/2019 to the cold hands of death. He died of prostate cancer. I'm looking for a good price for my dad.

I was devastated after a 20-year marriage ended badly. I later tried a dating website looking for a "buddy" to go do things with - no love on my mind! When I met this man I was instantly turned to jelly. We are both in our 70's and thought love life and true friendship were over. We fell so hard and so fast it was scary. We have been married now for two years and they have been the best years of my life and he tells me he feels the very same way. We both have been through a lot - but I believe we saved each other without even intending that to happen. I'm blessed and so happy it is hard to describe. This poem said it EXACTLY the way I feel! Thank you for being so able to express your innermost feelings. I'm not a poet, so you said it all for me.

Eighteen months ago my husband of 25 years just died while doing his exercises. It was a blow and took a lot of family support to get back to a balance. Two weeks back my father who became my support also died suddenly in his sleep. Both of them, who were pillars in my life, left peacefully without suffering. I have only memories, poetry, photos and philosophical explanations on how to handle this life lesson. I pass day to day thinking one day soon I will meet them and can share what has happened when they left the room. Also sometimes I know they are watching me unseen by me but felt.

My aunt died 3 years ago from cancer. I don't know what cancer, but she was 68. I really miss her and I wish I could hug her again. I would give anything to see her again.

I lost my adopted brother to a motorcycle accident 2/4/2019. He had just gotten a baby, Shantel, two months ago. I feel broken and shattered. His Mama left him at birth, his Papa when he was two. In everything, God is God. He remains to be God. No one tells Him what to do. He is the Living God.

I found this in a 'keepsake' box I have for cards and notes my daughters have given me since they were in daycare. It was given to me by my youngest daughter for Mother's Day in 2002. I was in the middle of a horrible marriage and didn't realize they knew that. I read it again today and it brought tears to my eyes that she was so full of strength. Sharing this with your daughters is a must, but sharing it with your mother is a true gift.
