My name is Leslie. I lost my mom in 1990, when I was 17yo. due to alcohol. My dad died in 2000 when his legs gave out while he was using the restroom. He hit his head on the bathroom counter. I was 28yo.

I am now 40yo and the days fly by, but I still wish my parents were here. My mom never met my husband and my parents never met my kids.

My dad would be 78yo and my mom would be 73yo if they were alive right now.

I think that is something we never get past. There will always be one reason or another that we wish they were still here. I'm sorry for your losses.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my new siggy!

I also have lost both of my parents! I have NEVER gotten over the loss of my Mom ( I was closer with her, but I miss my Dad too)

My Dad died November 22, 1996...I was 23 and pregnant with my 1st child, so my Dad never met any of my kids He was 54 when he died..less than 2 weeks away from his 55th Birthday!

My Mom died September 27, 2001 at the age of 58 (I was 28 and just had my daughter 2 days before she died) My Mom only knew my 2 older boys!

I am so sorry for your losses.

Both of my parents are also gone, its so hard when they're not here for your special milestones, even if they've been gone along time. Its hard not to be jealous when people are complaining about their living parents driving them crazy or interfering etc, I've give anything to have my mother here to meet my kids or my dad meet my husband and little ones. Its okay to remember them and wish they were here, they are in us at a cellular level, how could we ever forget them?

Lucky mother to five!
