oh,the day after Christmas..kids playing with all their toys!!Their joy and laughter and happiness!! Kept me busy and occupied....
for me..a time of sadness..my father died the day after Christmas in.  2004..he wanted to die at home..i lived with him for 4 months,caring for him..letting him die with dignity,in his home,as he wanted .Bittersweet..he started dying the day my mother did,6 years earlier. They are all together,he,my mom and my twin sister. He looked so peaceful..I helped take his body to the ambulance..i wouldn't leave him till the last moment. Funny..I walked back into the house I had grown up in..it was no longer home..it was a house..the people who made it home were no longer there.
I am 59 years old..but, the daughter in me feels lonely for her parents.
Those of you who have lost parents know what I'm feeling.

Dearest Ann,
Yes, I DO have the same feeling or share the very sense you said "the daughter in me feels lonely for her parents", my dear friend in America.

Love and hugs to you and your precious grandchildren from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

So many of us feel that way Ann. I long for the voice of my father,his story's and
his wonderful humor. Miss Mom's common sense advise,her cooking and hugs. Never seems to leave those of us who were close to our parents.Those simple times of childhood when all was right in life.

Big Hugs Ann! I am so sorry! I wish I could take that feeling away from you! You know, your parents are always there with you, loving you!!! When you said your home was a house now, that makes sense! You are a very special person and daughter! Love you!
