Funny that would be the first question asked when I logged in. My dad died on June 9, the day before my 22nd bday.

Sorry for your loss mebe... gosh, I dont know, I guess one of my brothers would be worse, everyone usually expects to outlive their parents...
16 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 8/27/04 - 7:31:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
Parent. Siblings (I hate saying this) have a small part in the family, while parents provide food, shelter, and care for the little ones.
16 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 8/27/04 - 7:40:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
A parent, unless maybe it were my little sister.
16 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 8/27/04 - 10:34:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oh god, can I die instead? I only have one reliable parent, but it would be hardest on me emotionally to lose one of my younger siblings.
16 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 8/27/04 - 10:45:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
Probably one of my siblings, especially my two younger sisters, to whom i am basically another parent.

Definitely having a parent die. As much as I hate mine at times, I'd be lost without one or both of them. Who would I turn to for guidance? After all, you can't always trust a friend.

I agree with Ziggy... you expect to outlive your parents anyway, so it would be somewhat less of a shock, and therefore a bit easier to cope with. Not that either choice would be necessarily "better", but...
16 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 9/15/04 - 4:53:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
As much as I can't stand my younger brother, I'd have to answer sibling (and how I hate admitting to that!).

I think a sibling dying would be worse. Your kind of prepared and expect for your parents to die before you do but dont really think about that happening to your siblings.
16 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 9/28/04 - 11:07:02 AM EST (GMT-5)
Sibling, cause my dad is already dead and I don't talk to my mom.
16 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 9/28/04 - 11:08:04 AM EST (GMT-5)
My grandmother died the day before my Mom's birthday.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 10/26/04 - 8:15:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
Ugh. Now I'm depressed. Probably my parents, though.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 10/26/04 - 8:18:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
A parent.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 11/5/04 - 3:33:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
i would have to say that this whole question is very depressing
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 11/5/04 - 3:35:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
Take it from someone who has had both happen, it is harder to deal with the death of a sibling than a parent. BTW, I have also lost a child, and that, of course, is worse yet.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 11/5/04 - 3:38:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sounds like you've had a rough life Brett...
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 11/5/04 - 3:41:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well, I have had a good life too, with mom going strong at age 80, four remaining siblings, and two beautiful, healthy children.

Life is what you make it. Many people have it worse than I do. Thanks for your concern, though. I mean that. It is nice of you.

I couldn't handle it if my sister died. She's been like a second mom to me for all of these years. But if my mom died I'd be so messed up. My best bet would be my dad he was physically and verbally abusive to me a couple of years ago. I wouldn't miss him that much.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 11/5/04 - 3:46:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd rather lose a parent, and they'd rather die themselves. I would rather die myself than for either of my daughters to lose the other.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 11/6/04 - 10:38:30 AM EST (GMT-5)
Losing one of my sisters would be a nightmare. I almost lost one of them before.. I couldn't imagine what I would do.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 11/6/04 - 10:43:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
Losing a parent. I rarely see my brother anyway.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 12/8/04 - 11:47:09 AM EST (GMT-5)
i dont have any siblings so i would have to say a parent
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 12/8/04 - 11:52:16 AM EST (GMT-5)
I think losing a sibling would be harder...especially since all of my sisters have kids and I know if my parents were gone already or unable to take care of them I would take them. Everyone expects to outlive their parents, and being the youngest child with a 12 year age gap between me and the next to youngest I expect to outlive both. Not looking forward to any of that.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 12/17/04 - 6:04:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
My brother died 4 years ago, and it was devistating. My dad on the other hand, I wish would die!
