This is going to be a pretty sad thread for some people. I was just thinking about what life would be like without my parents around. Morbid, I know, but I got to thinking about it after a private conversation with another forum member. My mom is 55 and my dad will be 60 this month. I'm 25 and the thought of a world without my parents is a really bitter pill to swallow and I know it's something I will eventually have to deal with. I always like to assume my parents will live into their 90's and I won't have to think about this for a few decades, but that may not be the case. How old are your parents? And if yours have passed, how old were they and how old were you when you lost them? How long did it take you to get used to not having them?
