Profile Information

About Me:
I am a wife, a mother of two, and a grandmother of three. I love Jesus, my family, hard work and making others happy!
About my Loss:
I lost my dad August 17th 2012. I also recently lost my mom on August 24th 2013. As an only child, I feel so much pain, as we were so close and her battle was an all too short one. My dad had cancer for a much longer period. In all, I have watched my grandma, mom and dad become ravaged and ultimately die from cancer. My mom was my best friend, my confidant and my biggest supporter. There is a piece of me that is missing now that my mom is gone. I am not even 50 and both my parents are gone!
Are You a Service Provider? If Yes, please tell us about your service.
Yes, I cared for my mom along with help from my young adult children. As I was her only child. I reduced my work hours from full time to part time and less to care for my mom, until she passed.

Hi Wendy,

I am part of a research team at Saint Louis University that is conducting a research project about how families communicate about making medical decisions for loved ones at the end-of-life.

I have read a bit about your story with your mom and dad and I'm interested in hearing more of your story. If this is something you would be comfortable with, please email me at cgibso10@slu.edu.

Thanks for the gift.  However do not look at yourself as an orphan.

"Strike those vacations below, they'll never be another one.  Went on a memorial cruise with my daughter and family four months after she passed because she was so looking forward to it.  It hurt enough to know they'll be no more."

Loss of a loved one to alcohol, substance abuse or suicide

If you have lost a loved one to alcohol, substance abuse or suicide please share your story or feelings here. Share the love and beauty of the one you lost. Losing someone any of these ways is not natural and can be hard to understand and ask why? I lost my Mother to an overdose 9 years ago. She also suffered from major depression. Her doctor got her hooked on pain medication and she was addicted most of my life. These doctors who were suppose to help her ended up killing her in the end. I also…See More
