    The most important thing I have ever lost was the companionship of my dear mother. I held her hand and watched her take her last breath. It was the most dreadful situation I've ever encountered. The good Lord needed her before I had a chance to grow into the adult I should have been when someone loses a parent.

    The most important thing I ever lost was years of trying to please everyone else and not following the beat of my own drum. (working in a very structured environment). Putting all needs of everyone else first...however.even though the years were lost, I turned it into a positive... I chose at the time to live as such, I can now see the error and write about them in my books..hopefully others will read and understand the importance of prioritizing your life, and throwing out the garbage....Whatever you may perceive, isn't necessarily so..my thoughts on the subject...

    Just like Lori, the most precious things we loose are usually the things we do not value until they are gone...the time spent with my dear Grandmother, my Father and my Uncle seemed ordinary in their company when they have been alive, now, they are gone and I would do anything to have it back...

    I have lost people to death but the most tragic losses in my life were to find the loss of a what I thought was a true friend who simply turned.

    I remain looking and seeking their return.

    For my loved ones, I have their strong memory and I can feel their love all around me.

    For friends who strayed far away - I still hurt and weep for the loss of a special bond.

    I've lost loved ones who are so important to me, namely my brother who was my best friend and my grandmother who raised me. Those two losses were so difficult. I've lost two dear friends to death that I still miss terribly. I have, like someone else mentioned, lost two friends to life circumstances, and those situations are very sad too. I miss them all. Letting go is not easy.

    I'd have to say the relationship with my sister.  She's gone down a wrong path and when I did the right thing by telling her she decided to toss the "don't judge me" nonsense at me.  Since then, things have only gotten worse for her, but she has cut me out of her life as well.  Sometimes you have to live and learn...but she's so proud I doubt she'll come around for decades.
