I think it depends on the situation. I do feel differently when I hear of any death....but especially a cancer death. Not even just in real life......I was watching a tv show where the father died, and I had a complete breakdown over it. In real life..... it's especially hard every time I see on of my Dad's friends pass away (sadly, most of them are gone now). It's an experience that has definitely changed me.
i had an early miscarriage since my mom's death - but that wasn't harder, other than that i haven't really had any other big loses since my mom died (it was pretty recent). But I think i'm more empathetic to those who loose someone, esp when it comes to cancer.
Do other losses seem to hit you harder since the loss of your parent? only the ones realated to cancer
Do you think that's because it brings you back to that moment? it's still hard to goto like the hospital we had brought her to,,, oh my land one of our good family friends who got cancer before mom passed,,, just died here about a month ago & they had the calling / showing ( he was also cremated ) at the same furnal home... that was very dificult... if i wasn't prego .. i would have had a few beers!!!
