Like I said what is wrong with these people is anybodies guess, but telling the VA this malarkey ( where the stats are from ) has got to be the height of stupidity.

Thank you Zach.

A long time ago on Ask.com I was going through the losses in my answer. I kept it private. (I tend to do that. Sorry if it comes across poorly.)
Anyway, what I did post was this:
Mourning is born of love, and that's a beautiful place to start.

I'm forever grateful to have had them in my life, to have loved them, and to appreciate them enough to mourn. Despite the sadness of loss, I know I'm a lucky woman.

I lost both my grandfathers when I was very young, so I don't have many of those wonderful grandpa moments that so many people have. Actually, I only have one of those memories.

I lost both grandmothers in my 20s. They both died from breast cancer. 

I have lost a couple of friends as well.

Considering my age I am actually very fortunate that I haven't lost more. I can't think of any of my friends that are around my age still have both parents. And too many have lost both.

Thanks very much tiger, i hope not too but my dad is up there now, 70 and he was very stubborn when it came to taking care of his health. i highly doubt he will lose weight and better himself. my mum is 57 :/

i doubt she will be around much longer the way she smokes, and the way her health is getting.

Oh yes.  My husband, my mother, my only brother, my grandparents, and many of my dearest friends and relatives.  I now have more loved ones who have passed away than those remaining.

I lost my Uncle Scott, I think about him often.

I lost my father about a year and a half now.

The level of importance is weighed on what HE will miss more then what I will miss . . .

The many comments posted were painful to even read about. I join you in experiencing that same pain. Understanding why we die and the hope for the dead has been very comforting to me. Knowing that this is not God's will and why He has allowed it has given me the ability to see the future that God has purposed.
