Thank you so much for your kinds words and encouragement. It isn't easy but the writing helps for sure. It is something that I wish I had time for more often, but I am getting better at talking about my feelings regarding the subject…"
I understand the frustration you must have. I know it's easy to place the blame on god and to want to be upset with him for taking someone away that you still wanted so much time with. It is a difficult process to loose someone too soon. I…"
"That is a really difficult process to take on. I remember when my father passed, my mother was the one who was taking care of the funeral arrangements, finances, his apartment and belongings and im sure a lot more. At the time I was in college and…"

My father passed away in 2008 from multiple myeloma (cancer of the bone). It was a sudden death that happened about a year after diagnosis. I was in college at the time and in no state to deal with reality. My family and I have always had a difficult relationship and were not overly affectionate towards one another. I would say that I was definitely closer with my father than I was with my mother. I ended up going through a rebellious young adulthood. This distanced my relationship with my…See More
"It is sad Trina but it is our truth. When my wife was here I'd dream about the good times that we would have when the kids finally cleared out. How I could really turn all the attention to her and spoil her, take her out and have date nights,…"

This is for anyone who has lost somone to cancer. I lost my adopted Mom to breast cancer some years ago. She was everything I could have asked for. She loved me because I was just me. She also loved my family and children as if they were her own.See More
