I am 51, never married, no children. I live in western NY state. I currently work at a private college. My hobbies include photography and travel.
About my Loss:
I lost my Mom in July of this year. She and I were extremely close and she was the only immediate family member I had left. My father died in 1992 and my only sibling, my brother, passed away unexpectedly in 2011. I am finding losing my mother to be the most difficult loss I've experienced. The pandemic isn't helping, and there are many other complicating factors that are making this grief incredibly painful.
