My tragic experience with my parent's death has been the most difficult time in my life. Being at this young age of 29, I never, ever expected to have to live my life without them. They both were truly amazing individuals and I loved them both more than words could ever express. My whole outlook on life has changed significantly. I now can truly understand and appreciate the saying of "take it one day at a time". My beautiful Mother, my best friend was such an incredible woman. She would remind us all to take it one day at a time, and/or say "this too shall pass", whenever we were going through a difficult time in our lives. No words could ever express the emptiness I feel inside for having to live without her. She was everything to me. My heart, my soul, my everything. Living each day without her has been a struggle and very difficult. Some days I wish I could be with them, yet I can hear her telling me that I should know better. One thing that has made my grief and healing process somewhat easier is the fact that mom and dad both knew how much I loved them. I followed my mom's heart and made it a point to tell her and dad, and to show them that I cared about them and especially that I loved them. I could go on forever writing about how wonderful and special my mom was to me, but I feel that just by sharing a bit of my experience with others who have suffered a great loss is very helpful, and also somewhat of a memorial to the ones we all have lost.
