Are there any other DU'ers here who lost a parent (death) in childhood? [View all]

I am learning more and more these days how much this affects me as an adult. Iíve always known I had certainly been affected by this, but the stresses of this past year have made this more pronounced.

I believe some of this has been positive in resulting in a better understanding. My mother died of cancer when I was eight.

Just wondering if there are other DUíers who lost a parent in childhood who might want to share some thoughts and open a dialogue. My understanding is that children who were abused, abandoned, etc. experience much the same in adulthood as those who had a parent pass away, so that may be part of the discussion as well.
