42 Years

Today would have been my parents 42nd anniversary!

It's been almost 8 years that Dad passed away and almost 2 years for Mom. They were so young! I think that's the hardest thing for me.

How is it that so many people have parent's that live into their 70's, 80's and 90's? Sometimes I get mad when people are so sad when a loved one (especially a parent!) passes away late in life. I know I shouldn't get upset, but I do... They have no idea that they should be happy they had so long with them and that they lived so long. 56 and 62 is just way too young to die.

Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!

You are right, of course. I fear the day my Daddy goes on--but that day cannot be far from now. He's 84 and has a broken neck from a car accident a year and a half ago.

I am so sorry you lost your parents so young. I can only imagine the pain a little. I did lose my little brother too early. He was 42. But that would not compare to losing parents so young. ((hugs))

Take care, dear one.

I completely understand Pam....there are many days I wish that I had even five more minutes with both of them...we lost them way too young and it's extremely hard some days....I love you!
