I'm so, so sorry for your loss.

I know exactly how you feel, though. I was 19 when my mother passed away from breast cancer (which eventually spread everywhere else in her body). That was 8 years ago and I still think of her every single day. Her and I were best friends, so when she died, a good part of me died along with her. There is so much I want to tell her and talk to her about. I want her there at my wedding, I want her there when I have my first child, I want her...here. And I know she is with us, just not physically.

What's even tougher for me, though, is for the last year my dad has been battling lung cancer. He's not getting better, so I know how this story is going to end.

Losing both parents from cancer before I'm 30 is extremely difficult and life can seem really unfair. It's almost as if someone's punishing us for being good people. Sounds funny, but it's true.

There really isn't much advice I can give, except "keep on truckin'". I know that sounds cliched, but you will see the sun again. Eventually you'll find a new "normal". It's traveling the road to getting there which will be the most challenging. But hang in there. You're not alone. Many of us are traveling along with you!

Much love. :-)
