    will love you as I did my . . .

    Hi,

    *self-made*

    - I will always love you as I did my mom and father before their death.

    I would like to ask if we can use 'did' inaead of 'loved' in the above sentence or not.

    Thanks.

    Re: will love you as I did my . . .

    Yes, you can, but "death" should be plural. Also, it would be more natural with "mom and dad" or "mother" and "father".
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer
