The devastating first wave of Covid-19 took my beloved mother, and last week, my father joined her in the afterlife. I was blessed to have my parents as a constant source of comfort and guidance, but their absence has left me untethered and adrift in uncharted waters. For the first time, I am without their unconditional love, continual prayers, and good wishes for my well-being.
At almost 60 years old, I have to learn to navigate life all over again, which is heart-wrenching. In these few days without the presence of both my parents, I’ve discovered valuable lessons to help me cope with the overwhelming grief and loss. Join me on this emotional journey as I share my insights, struggles, and triumphs in the face of dual parental loss.
