The other day I counted how many of my close friends and family have lost a parent, much too early. 8. I know 8 people who have gone through a similar loss as I have. And it breaks my heart. And I am sure there are more that I am not remembering, which I apologize for.
While amm was sick and with her passing, talking to these confidants was a key part of my grieving process. Just having someone to talk to about similar feelings and thoughts didn’t make me feel as alone. Although everyone’s situations are different, we all have felt the sadness in our being of a parent dying young, while we were young ourselves.
This area of amm’s website is dedicated for anyone to share about their loss of a parent. It can be an outlet for your thoughts or feelings or memories. You can share stories of your parent. You can just read what others have written, if anyone chooses to share.
There’s no pressure to participate. And no criteria for sharing. Any loss that you may have experienced, no matter the age.
It can be our own little support network…
