About my Loss:
My loving hardworking husband of only 8 years died suddenly of the vicious disease, liver cancer. He worked very hard for us to have a good retirement and now our dream is gone; he'll never got to experience all the things he worked so hard to enjoy. There were no symptoms until it was too late and I hospiced him at home. The shock, the stress and the speed it took was unbelievable.

6/12/2012. Now my father passed away, the guy that told me to drive 900 miles to see him so he could give me a hug when my husband passed. I just have my dog now, its weird, but a loving warm breathing creature can bring alot of comfort.

My Story

When I was twelve my mother was murdered then my beloved sweet grandmother died when I was 18. My maternal grandfather died when I was 22. My maternal grandmother died when I was 33 and my final living parent/grandparent died when I was 35.  I lived with a lot of loss most of it came at a sudden clip.  I'm left with incredible feeling of loneliness even though I've been married for 20+ years and have two wonderful children.  It's tough to share my true feelings with my wife because it's so hard…See More

My Story

When I was twelve years old, my mother was brutally murdered during a robbery of our home.  I came within minutes of finding her body but by sheer chance I didn't.  It has been over 35 years since that day but it still effects my life today.  As a child, I went through the trial of the man convicted of killing my beautiful mother then as a man I went through his parole process finally his death from illness in prison. See More
