I was born in Philadelphia. I was the bicentennial there but moved to California before Star Wars was released. My parents split up when I was young. My dad returned to the east coast in the late 70s but moved back to California a few years ago.
About my Loss:
I met a girl in High School. She had a baby with someone else. She married a third guy. She and I were always close. She came to live with me in May 2009. She made me the happiest I had ever been in my whole life. She was very sick during a lot of 2011 and we had no idea why. She was in the hospital a very short time in October because of a high fever and trouble breathing. She was released way too soon (in my opinion) and she died a few days later. There was no one else in my life.
yes it is very difficult because he was young , i wish i had more time with him. i do't think its fair that they get taken away so young. I thought as time went by it would get easier but i see it doesn't. There are days that are harder then others where all i can do is just cry but then i think , just how you said , our loved ones wouldnt want to see us like this. They are all in a better , safe , and happy place. I am very sorry for your loss as well, i can only imagine how hard it was for you since she lived with you. She is now looking over you. She'll always be with you in spirit.

I saw your post late late last night. I see you are still doing your best to cope. I remember a time that I wasn't even coping. I was barely standing. After six years seven months I have become anesthetized.…"
