The loss of a parent is devastating at any age. No matter how old we are, how much of an independent life we live on our own, the experience is crushing beyond words. The one person who loved you and accepted you unconditionally is GONE. The entire world loses its balance.
To survive, we each have our own beliefs. For many of this, it is that we will indeed see our loved ones again.
Working through your own grief and having Kirk cling to this thought I hope gave you a sense of comfort. Love never dies.
I grieve with thee, Cynthia.

It was always so quiet when Spock was around—but not the dead, leaden silence of the house as it was now.
This. And you've captured the way it is so difficult to deal with ordinary everyday details: kind people, your own decor, plurals that are now singular.
I'm so sorry, and wishing you and your mother peace.

I'm wiping tears away. I could almost imagine the bone-deep pain, the horrible agony of being the one left behind. You captured it so well. I have but one lone experience in my life that compares, and I was so young when it occurred. But this brought back those memories. Your writing is sublime, and my one deafening prayer is that you are gaining some comfort from the act. Thank you for the strength you are portraying. You are my heroine.

There's so much I'd like to say, but the best I can think to do is send you a virtual hug. I'm fortunate in having a mother still alive and in good health, but I've watched friends my age (early 20s) lose parents back in high school and struggle with cancer just this year. It's got to be one of the greatest losses for anyone. Let me know if you want any specific prayers - I'll keep sending them. I'm glad you can deal with tragedy through writing, and hope you feel the support of your fans. Best fishes
TY. No, I simply hope it is quick and peaceful. She's not going to get better, and she has no quality of life at this point, so it is better that she move on to hopefully a better world.

I remember when Daddy(He was my granda but as he raised me I called him Daddy) died. It didn't sink in for ages. One night I rang up and asked my mother how he was, then realising he wasn't there, dropped the phone and wept. My husband picked it and told my mother that I would ring back later. He held me whilst I wept. Your tale brings back those memories, but it will help you to write down how you feel and how to express it. Not like myself who buried it. Your words are wonderful, keep writing.
