When someone dies, everything changes. Life has been altered. Grief has replaced happiness and pain displaces well-being. All that was intact is now broken.
They are gone. No longer heard are their voice, their laughter, their calling out as they arrive home at the end of the day. The darkness brings a greater loneliness than ever thought possible and the morning starts another day without them.
Each one can write their own grief experience and each experience, though appearing the same, is uniquely different. No two are alike, yet they are the same. As you cherished your love, so too, cherish your grief for it is an expression of love.
