This is still a hard subject for me, I lost both of my parents by the time I was 25. My mom passed when I was 19 of colon cancer, my dad six years later of a heart attach. With mom it was expected since she had been through four operations, dad was on the job installing a standing seem roof on a historic hotel in downtown when he had the attach. I'm not complaining, it made me to better realize how important family is, we spend as much time as possible with our children and my wife's parents. For those that still have their parents ask as much as possible, one day you will not be able to.
