I am 60 (ouch) and my father died when I was 8 and my mother when I was 15. I don't have any brothers and sisters - so yes, even after all of these years, there are days when I just want my mom to hold me.
I have filled the void with my own family. Wonderful husband of 42 years and two married daughter and their families. Having my own family has been wonderful and I am grateful every day for them.
