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.

I also miss my mother and father , in a two year period I lost both of them and my best friend and my dog. I still talk to them but its a one sided conversation . Life is like a roll of toilet paper , the closer you get to the end , the faster it goes.

My Dad died in 1978 at 71. Smoking for 60+ years wasn't kind to him in the end. My Mom died in 2015 at 103-1/2. She was in good health up until the last couple of weeks.

I still talk to both of them every day. It fills the void in life now that they are gone.
