    How'd you cope, what was your story, had you come out to them yet?

    (I hadn't.)

    I lost my Mother young. She knew I liked to look at men but I had not allowed myself to explore that side of my sexuality when she died.

    Don't worry about the lost chance to come out to your lost parent. If you want to use the opportunity to grow just remember every day the stuff that things that parent taught you that made them and you a better person. Practice and remember those things.

    Lost my dad aged 4. my Grandfather and Uncle then too over as the fatehr figure....my Grandfather died when I was 12 and my Uncle just this last May. My mom died three years ago....

    Came out to my Uncle and myMom.They took it verypositively...but my mom preferred to call me bisexual. She innitially triedto set me up with any single girl at church and then whewn that didnt work, because she worked at a hospital with any young cute nurse or doctor. Had a few dates but ....ooo....wierd.
