hugs Alan. It's been 4 years since my mom died, and it never gets easier on mothers day.
You WILL reach your goals and wear those shirts. Things might not happen as fast as we would always like them to, but we get stronger in the process.

I have so much I want to say, and I don't even know where to start. I've been bawling since about 30 seconds in. I'll share my dad, though, any time. (He's pretty much an older, male version of me so that's a mixed bag.) You are an amazing man and your father would be nothing but proud of who you have become. ((hugs))

An amazing vlog! So heartfelt and touching! Keep up the hard work you are doing as continue to inspire me.

{{{hugs}}} Alan! I know exactly how you feel. I was pretty much raised by my grandmother and I miss her more than words can express. That's part of why I have the large memorial tattoo on my leg in her memory. Her birthday and holidays rip me apart inside. I have no doubt you WILL reach your goal and wear those shirts! Good job on your loss this week.

Oh darling, it's so hard for me to hear the tears in your voice. It's not just sympathy, it's empathy. I know (not exactly) what it's like... it's been 17 years without my mom.

You're right, it's really hard to understand that kind of loss unless you've lived through it. It is unbearable. I don't think the pain ever gets better, it just changes over time. Some days hurt more than others, some moments are harder than others.

You're so much braver than I am -- I don't think I'd be able to post the same kind of vlog.

I don't know what to say. So. I'll just say thank you for sharing that. You inspire me.

HUGZ Alan...I know exactly how you feel... the only thing that helps me through some days is that someday I will see both my Mom and Dad again...
