    I lost my best friend in all the world on August 29, 2009-my beautiful mother. She was always there for us. The last years of her life she was not well and I know she wasn't happy. I hope now she is happy and carefree up in heaven reunited with my other best friend, my dad, the love of her life. She never really accepted losing him. All our lives changed dramatically and not for the better with the passing of my dad. I expect it to be the same losing our wonderful mother and grandmother. I truly feel all alone now.
