One of my favourite bloggers of all time is Paula Span, who writes for the New York Times. Recently she wrote a really good article about how differently you may feel about yourself, your remaining family and the world in general once both of your parents have passed away. I certainly found a lot in this article that resonated with me personally, and I recognized many more of her points that have been brought up by my clients over the years. Click here to read Ms. Span's article about what it feels like to become an orphan when you're an adult. It's a great read!
