ITS SO HARD TO LOOSE YOUR MOM AND DAD TO DEATH NO MATTER HOW OLD YOU ARE ITS HARD MY MOTHER WAS MY BEST FRIEND WE WOULD TALK ON THE PHONE EVERY DAY SHE WOULD ALWAYS GIVE ME HELPFUL ADVICE WE DID NOT LIVE FAR FROM EACH OTHER SO WE WOULD TAKE OUR DOGS TO THE PARK TOGETHER AND HAVE A SANDWHICH AND TEA OR KENTUCKY FRIED CHICKEN THEN GO TO OUR OWN HOMES TO FINISH OUR HOUSE HOLD CHORES WE DID ALOT OF TRAVELLING THEN i WAS MARRIED TO WALLY SO HE WOULD WATCH THE KIDS AND DO EVERY THING WHILE MY MOM AND I WERE AWAY although he liked his beer he still had something good about him He would mow the yard liked his home to look nice he would also mow my moms yard its to bad he could not stop drinking. Cause with the booze he would have been a alright guy. I miss my mother she was my best friend alone I cry and inside I cry when I think of her and all the fun we shared how many of you miss your parents and why tell me and share your stories with me

I'm very sorry for your loss, imgrandma, but, maybe about telling you my own story, I can comfort you, alright? Even though your mom passed away, you dont have to think about the tragedies and sad moments, think about the fun you had with her, and that she loved you very much, I dont think she would have wanted you to be this unhappy all the time, and, the love of your mother hasnt gone, it will be reborn into new love, or maybe you already have the new love, so dont miss her, because someone else will love you or already loves you just as much, maybe its wally, or someone else, dont lose your hope, Im sure you'l get to see her once again, maybe in your dreams or at the Judgement day, I dont really know, but untill then, stay happy,

First of all I will say I am sorry for your loss. I lost both my grandma and mother, it is very hard to deal with. I miss them very much at times. Life can be unfair. I take comfort in reading this book: Five people you meet in heaven. I especially like how it is said there is no such thing people die but love does not have to die, you can love your mother even if she is in heaven, you have your memories and well, I am not sure if that's a comfort to you but I am hoping it is.

First i would like to mourn for your loss. It is hard to lose someone that is dear and i would like to answer the title why do our parents die before us. Simply because namely of age and of course their timeline has an edge before us. but not all parents come to end before their children, in cases such early tragic event in life like accidents, ailment , etc. Mostly they do die before us. All we need to do is pray for them. pray for their souls and make special everyday in our lives.

I don't have this close contact to my parents as you describe it. Particularly from my father I have learnt, that we should focus on eternity already while on earth. He does this every day at his age of more than 80 and I want to do the same. This made both of us to leave our church's ceremonial life and to take Jesus' message of heavenly love more serious. It has helped me quite a lot to read Jesus' words about "life after life" such as "Bishop Martin" and "Robert Blum" in his "New Revelation" dictated in German language to the Austrian prophet Jakob Lorber (1800-1864). You might get these texts in English for free download from www.franky1.com and find a new focus for your mission in life.

I'm really sorry to hear about your loss. You're right, the loss of a parent is hard at any time. But imagine what she would have felt like if you'd passed away before her? I know this won't help you much at the moment, but it's a fact of life that, in general, older people will pass before younger people.. and although this isn't very nice, it is sadly true. You might not feel as though you could ever be happy again, but I assure you, you will be. It might take weeks, or months, but I promise you, you can be happy again. You need to speak to your family, and support each other during this difficult time, and I am sure you will feel better soon, even though it might not feel like you ever will right now.

my father raised three kids by himself. I am the youngest and my biological mother lefted us when i was born. Loosing my mothrr was how i entered this world. It doesnt really suck. It sucks more to build a relationship and then seeing them go. Which im assuming what ur feeling. I think ehen my mother left it stopped me from feeling attached when things come and go

Are you out of breath after that big, long sentence? Boy, I sure am! And I have a headache with all that shouting you did. Why do our parents die before us? Gee, I don't know. I'm puzzled on that one because they're younger than us, so it doesn't make any sense. Kids should die before their parents and make THEM suffer. After all, kids are usually older than the parents. Right?
