Crying when someone dies is expected. It’s hard to find a dry eye in those early days of grieving. As time goes by, tears come and go. The heart adjusts to the loss, but nothing is ever the same. Someone is missing and that doesn’t change.
Grieving, like loving, lasts a lifetime. Eventually, you learn to laugh again, to lose yourself in a given moment, to celebrate and appreciate life and those around you. In time, the sun shines again, but like a sudden shower on a warm summer’s day, tears of grief start to flow…when you least expect it. Grief, like love, lasts a lifetime.
