    I lost my father...
    but What I get is much more then what I have lost...
    If you will think in that way, you will also feel that...
    Life is so small to feel bad....

    I lost both my Father when i was 15,  and my wife when i was 23 years. For me such kind of a traumatic loss are the most things that i lost in my life. However, God has been so good to me in the midst of such loss, He has given me peace and strength to move forward life. My God is my source of strength and i do not fear anything, any more in this world because I experience His presence even in the midst of the shadow of death.

    I am an only child and lost my dad when I was 8, my mom when I was 15 then I moved in with my aunt and uncle.  We had to put my cat down and after I lived there about 6 months, my dog disappeared.  It was a pretty dark time and I felt terribly alone.

    Good news I married a great man 40 years ago and had to daughters and have two granddaughters.  So despite the rough start, I feel blessed.

    My 3 1/2 year old nephew -- his mother was my best friend, and his father was my cousin, who was like a brother to me. My cousin was overseas and things went south between them, so she drove everyone away from her. The isolation was so complete that, when she didn't recognize the symptoms of a head injury, there was no one else there that might have been able to see it. We still don't know all the details, but somewhere along the way he hit his head. He died a week later.

    most likely my first car...it was a 2000 ford focus...the "sporty" edition...lol.  Anyway, I put that thing through hell and back.  I bought it out right when I was 17, with 5,200 i saved up during an entire summer....by the following summer, I woke up at 6 in the morning by my mother saying, "Christina, I don't think you're going to work today, your car is underwater."
    And sure enough it was, water was up to the steering wheel of my car during a flash flood on my island.  Totaling the car...thank god for full car insurance ....smile , but i never got to drive my focus again.

    To add on to this answer, I notice everyone is posting about a close relative or friend that they had lost....I didn't want to sound as a greedy person by saying my first car was the most precious thing lost....fortunately I have yet to experience a death of a loved one so far in my 21 years of life.

    The will to follow my dreams, along with my freedom FROM responsibility.
    I was thrown out into the streets before I was even out of high school. It took me a long time to get solid ground under my feet, and to get my life moving in the right direction. As soon as I got a car, I chose to get a second job, along with a second car, in the case that I would lose either one, I would have a backup, and never end up on the streets again.
    I felt that it was important to build myself a life that was better than the one I grew up in. It was my only focus for years, because I didn't have anyone to turn to for advice on how to run my life.
    Once I had gained the things I felt, a solid life should have, I also found myself with a ton of responsibility. One of them is my 5 year old daughter. Despite the fact that she lives with her mom across town, I still have to take her into consideration, with every major decision that I make. I didn't realize how much responsibility I actually had, until she was born.
    Now when I look back to the days, when everything that I owned, fit into a small duffel bag...
    In those days, I considered that life to be a curse, when really, it was a blessing! At that point in time, I had all of my life in front of me. I could live anywhere I wanted to, be anything I wanted to be. I didn't see it that way then, but I do now.
    I gave up the desire to follow my dreams when, the desire to have the life that I never did growing up, took over my thoughts. The reality of the path I chose to take, combined with the responsibilities, that came along with it, have all but made my desire to follow my dreams disappear.
    Now my daughter is the most important thing to me in life, and my new desire, is to encourage her to follow her dreams!

    I would have to say my connection with my siblings.  Once my father passed away my siblings took his death out on my Mother who had cared for him for years.  I wouldn't join their 'band wagon' and now look out for my Mom.

    My father due to Alzheimer's.  It's the most tragic way ever to watch someone you love pass away.  I'll never get over it.

    Childhood is the most precious thing which i or anyone can not get back. Personally Have experienced horrible upbringing and feel to be a child is something you can not take for granted. Don't make them lose their innocence. Be supportive, Caring, Loving and always try to stand in front of them.

    A family. I moved out of my dads house and in with my mom recently because of the stress his family was causing me, it was unhealthy for me so I had to leave. But I miss my dad and my step family more than they know and I wish I didn't have to leave, but for my health it was necessary. If I could still be with them I would.
