My Dad passed away this morning. I don’t know if this is normal or not but I feel totally empty inside, loosing both parents in 8 months. I know my grandchild will fill up some of it. But she is not a parent right now. My parents were so good to my brothers and I. They would give the shirt off there backs to help us out.

Enough rambling my parents will always be loved by the people they touched each and everyday they were here,now they will do it up there where they are now.

God bless you Mom and Dad:

Love your FAMILY!!!

Tim, you have my deepest sympathy. I lost both of mine now at least 3 years ago and it leaves you with something missing- you can’t just call them up any more or stop over.

Rest assured they are in a better place with the Lord now and always looking down on you!!..........Jim

My condolences to you and your family Tim. I can tell you from experience that you will, in time, be able to accept the passing of your loving parents, but you will always have their Loving memories to keep with you.

Good parents are hard to loose, you never get over it, but you will learn to live with it in time.

Tim, I am so sorry for your loss and yes it is normal to feel empty. I lost my mom 12 years ago and now my dad is failing. I know I will miss my dad he and I are close and easy to talk to, but anymore he just sits in his chair and reads and stares at the wall…............I will miss my dad when he is gone too!

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and I will be thinking of you!

It is hard to lose a parent so close together, and there is nothing I can say that will make this any easier. keep their memories close.

Sorry for your loss. Of course those simple words do little to comfort you but it is all we can offer in such a tough time. Your love is reflected in your sorrow. May God bless you and your family.

Sorry for your loss. Yes, it is normal to feel “empty” at a time like this. We lost both my parents in an auto accident in 1968 and even now I miss them. But they were good parents and I find that I have part of each of them in me. If I listen carefully, I can almost hear them tell me what they think about things. I will always cherish their memory and know that you will always remember your Mom and Dad.

Life sometimes seems like a long road, but then suddenly you find the end and usually it seems to be too soon.

Take care.
