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…"

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

"I'm so sorry, Theresa. It's too bad the lot of us don't live nearer together so we could meet and support one another. One thing I've learned through this is that there are people in our lives who can be thoughtless and…"
I can relate so well to this. I can't tell you how many times I have said and felt these exact same things. I'd see a recipe that looked good and start to call my mom to tell her about it, I'd create a piece of art but she…"
