    A present parent is far better than no parent at all. It doesn't matter which gender.  When a child is able to physically touch a part of their DNA this is yet another one of life's little gifts. I am one in the third of six living generations and it has been a wonderful gift to share 95 years of my grandmother's life.

    How people respond to circumstance tends to be more related to the coping mechanisms they have learnt and the support they are able to access at times of need... rather than specific circumstances.

    Why are you so interested is it something you are doing?
     i can speak from experience about this. grief is a personal thing and can last for a long time.anything can trigger the grief.to loose the main breadwinner from any family can cause a lot of stress etc it would depend how independent the parent left to deal with things is.
     if they did'nt deal with bills money for everyday things.they would have to learn to do it.a lot depends on the person.but to loose a parent at a young age is something else believe me

    I agree with Native spirit, that to lose a parent at such a young age would be the major impact on them.

    The situation calls for one of the parents to die so, if it is possible to envisage the least possible emotional damage, then that would depend on who the children were less close to. Much is made of the financial factor but even poor one parent families can be rich in other ways if they are close.  Also, the impact of their friends needs to be borne in mind, since this is the support network.

    It would depend entirely on the parent

    I lost my mother a few weeks ago, I was her caretaker for 9 months in my home. This was very difficult making decisions for someone else life and body. Watching her struggle for life while using all I have to help her survive. There is much I can say about the experience nevertheless, knowing she is free from pain and suffering gives me a sense of freedom for both of us.

    I believe it is a tremendous gift when each generation can teach and touch the other. My family still have six living generations, my mother was the second. My grandmother 97 is still alive. 
    I lost a loving mother she carried me in her belly for nine months and I carried her during the last 9 months of her life on earth. I feel the loss, but I also feel the freedom of her passing. I found her body cold in her room early morning, when I felt the cold on her arm I went to turn up the heat. Then I touched her head and it was also cold that's when I knew she was gone.
