Tomorrow is going to be so hard for me but I wouldn't have my mama or daddy back on this earth in the shape they were in when they passed away. They both are well now and living eternally with Jesus. I know they will be waiting for me when my time comes to go meet the Lord, and they will meet me and go with me to see Jesus. I relive my precious mama and daddy's lives through our grand-children. It is so awesome, we had two grandchildren before they passed away. Then after they passed away we have had four and each one of them are carrying so many of my mama and daddy's traits that my precious mama and daddy are still living through these grand-babies. I see so much of my mama and daddy in my kids too so I still have them with me in so many ways. I have the precious memories as I was growing up and I will forever cherish them. I am crying now because I miss them so much but I know they are so much better off now and I am so blessed to have had them as long as I did and to have had the opportunity to take care of them and be with both of them when they passed away. I still remember that small but definite grin on both of their faces as they left this world as went on to be with Jesus. Daddy left us in 2004 and Mama left us in 2006. God blessed me that I was able to be with them both in those last days. It doesn't matter how old we get we never get too old to miss our mommy and daddy. I really miss your Mommy and Daddy but I know you are so much better off. I'm looking forward to being with you when God calls me home. Thanks for reading and God bless you!

That is such a sweet thing to write. I'm sure your parents would be very proud of you. I think the loss of a parent is something that we never get over. Always remember that you will be together again in Heaven. Hugs to you and God bless!

From your article,I realize that I haven't pay attention to my parents,I always quarrel with them about little things.However,what if I lose them?I don't know what to do ,what I really want to do now is giving them a hug.

Hi, Mama, I don't know how to say. As even if you know your parents are with Jesus now, it's also hard for you to think of them, as you cannot see or listen or touch them! But I think you can get confort from your children, it's a great blessing from God. When I say goodbye to our family or friends we love so much, the living ones around us is the comfort from God. They encourage us living sometimes. In another word, you're also blessed in my opinion, as all of you are His children. So... you will gather again in Jesus. It's every Christian's hope and it's from God. And thanks you for sharing with us, God blesses! In another word, I think we should pray for those who're not believe in God, and hope His every child on the earth will go back!

No matter how confident we are that our parents and loved ones are waiting for us on the other side, it's still hard to lose them. We miss their laughter, their hugs and their advice, their unconditional love and their smiles. I'm blessed to have both parents and a stepmother still with me. My dad will be 90 in November and sometimes it seems like his time is very limited. I appreciate every moment I can spend with him and my stepmother, a sweet woman that I adore. My mom is several states away but we talk often and if there is a hurricane she'll be coming to visit me--I almost hope for bad weather! Memories are gifts from God, to comfort us in our loved ones' absence. Keep telling your grandchildren stories of them and share pictures so they'll continue to live on and hopefully influence another generation.

HI, Touching story from you... Be strong and life still go on,so always think positively. Whatever has past....don't always think about it. The most important is your dad and mom always in your heart. FOr me, I am grateful that my parents are still with me. I miss them alot too because I have been away from my hometown for more than 15 years. We do visit each other once a year. We do keep in touch through phone. Always treasure what you have now and always do good things. GBU!!

I have both my mom and my dad still with me, and I'm grateful. Although with my mom's health, I don't know if it is really good that she is still here. A person wants to keep them with them, but they also want to see them out of pain. I'm sorry that you are missing them so much now, but I'm glad that you are assured to see them again. That's the best thing of all. : )
