I am curious to know (even though I know we are all different)

How old were you when you lost your parent and how often to do you think of them?

I was 6 years old when I lost my dad... I think of him almost every single day. This morning I got sad thinking about him on my way to work of all things.

I was nearing 27 when I lost Dad. That was just over 3 years ago. I still think of him every single day... Usually multiple times a day.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my new siggy!

I was 35 when I lost my dad (18 months ago) and I think of him multiple times a day...

My DD & I actually pass by the cemetary where he is buried every day on our way home and we say: "Hi Gampy, we love you, we miss you everyday"...

I was 35 when I lost my mom and 33w 1d pg with Lennox. I think about her often. She turned 59 on July 26th and died the very next day. I found out on July 28th which happened to be my son Ty's 13th birthday. So I get sad sometimes just looking at my children.

He passed the day before my 17th birthday. Not a day goes by that I don't think of my daddy. I'm 23, now.

it was only 13 days ago for me and I'm 26.

I can't help but not think of him, some of his ashes are sitting on top of my tv with our family photo and a glass angel.

My mother passed away when I was 19 and I'm 25 now. I think of her daily. There are times I find myself wanting to call her to ask her how to do something, and I remember I can't. She died 3 months before my daughter was born so someitmes I look at her and wish that my mother could have seen her.

**thanks brui77 for my AMAZING siggy**

i was eight when my father passed away. i think of him nearly every day, people say it gets better with time but in my case that doesnt seem to be true. It will be 20 years that he's been gone in September and the pain has not lessoned any. Since i found out i am pregnant with a boy it has been even more difficult, i'm in tears every other day it seems.

Thank you so much Jaidynsmum for the beautiful siggy!

I'm 26 now.. my dad died when I was 13. I think of him at least once a day, but I have a hard time really trying to remember things.. it still hurts too much and I just can't think too hard for too long.

It's really hard now that we're expecting baby #1. This would be his first grandchild, something that I've had more than a few tears over.

Regardless of the gender of this child, either one will have one of my dad's names as their middle name. Joseph Camille will pass on Joseph to his grandson, or Camille to his granddaughter.

I was 21 when my dad passed away, and I had to take the responsibility of watching over my siblings, while my mom mourned (they had been married 22 years and known each other 4 years before that).

I know its been almost 11 years since he passed, but not a day goes by that I don't think about him and miss him terribly.

I lost my mom in August of last year and not a day that goes by that I don't think of her I was 30 years old but my kids are only 2 and 1 years old. She was such a wonderful Mom and it makes me soo sad that she doesn't get to see my children grow up. Everytime the phone rings I wish it was her. I wake up and still can't believe I don't have a mom. I hear time heals the pain but I will never forget her and hope she is looking down upon us and happy...
