"Toyanne, I'm so sorry for your loss. My love passed away on May 29th of this year from lung cancer and he was given 6 to 8 months but he only lasted about 3. I have our 2 year old daughter that looks so much like him and I feel…"
"Toyanne, I know just how you feel -- only I was given 4 months instead of just a few days. We did not know anything was wrong at all before Feb. 24th, and he passed on June 24th. no hint of any problem, no shortness of breath or anything…"

I've been a member for, oh, just a couple of days, but I've noticed a possible lack of focus on LGBT issues related to the loss of loved ones.I know what I had to go through - even with medical POA and a will - to gain legitimacy with the "powers that be" with regard to authorization for cremation, among other things.Just wondering if perhaps there are issues unique to the LGBT community that the other fine people on this site did NOT have to go through.I welcome your thoughts and…See More

I just lost my Love of my life husband to Lung Cancer yesterday. We found out last Saturday that he had lung cancer and they said that they didn't know what type of lung cancer it was and we had to wait on the test results which to be on Monday.

I am so sorry for your loss. It is understandable how sad it is when you don't get to say goodbye due to a loss so sudden.
To share my experience, my Mom passed like this. I also did not get to say a goodbye (e.g.…"
There is a part of being human that is perhaps more evident to who is more an INTROSPECTIVE person. The part in me that the REBEL takes charge and propulse CHANGE. It´s not visible to others necessarily. Because it is in such a deep level, that most don´t quite read right. Works like this. When a lot of people tell you things that are not remotely acceptable, you make a longer distance from them to you. And they wonder what´s wrong, and of course they wont point at themselves reading you wrong…See More

January 20, my son's father lost his life to addiction. My son is eight years old, it seems so unfair that a little kid has to endure such grief. His father and I grew up together, I knew why he was the way he was. His parents both were addicts and we're in prison. Well tomy ( my son's father ) , continued the cycle. When our son, drake was born, tomy was in prison and it continued through drake's life. Tomy came home from his last stint in prison December 15 and was found dead Jan 20. Only had…See More
