I'm so sorry LadyV. I too am parentless. Although nothing really fills that space, I have made it a point reach out to a couple of older people on holidays, etc. One woman, in particular, was very close with my mother and it makes her day when she hears from me.
May your pain soon be replaced with all the wonderful memories.

From time to time, I do consider that I might be mad. Like any self-respecting lunatic, however, I am always quick to dismiss any doubts about my sanity. DK

Hugs and to you and yours. I'm so sorry I wish I knew what to say.
I am fiercely independent and I won’t apologize for it. I'd rather be single than settled.

((LadyV)) I'm so sorry for your loss. There really isn't any advice. You'll always miss him and wish you'd had more time. Try to focus on positive memories. It really helps to be with other people that knew and loved him and reminisce about happy things together. Please remember to take care of yourself during this difficult time. ((LadyV))

I am so sorry. If you need a IRL hug. I think we are nearby.
