Grateful For My Parents


Both my parents died. My dad Thomas (Jack) E. Armstrong died 6-10-97 My mom Marlys (Marty) D. Armstrong died 5-30-98 both died from cancer. My name is Mary and I have 3 brothers 2 older and one younger. The one before me died 16 years ago. I lived with my mother and took care until her last breath. When they died so did a lot of me and I hate it. I don't want to be around people. I'm angry I'm sad I'm mad, I'm depressed and at the same time I'm so glad to be alive and so grateful to have had the parents I had. I am so lost without my mom. She was my best friend. What to do?

When you smile the whole world smiles with you.
