Grief is an experience for community, for family and friends to share, for others to show they care. In its truest sense, grief is an individual experience.
The expression of grief takes many forms. Most cry, some don’t. At times, there is anger, denial and a sense of hopelessness. There is pain. There is loneliness. There is loss. There is the wonderment of, “What will I do now?”
We each could write a book about our grief; one for a spouse, one for a child, one for a parent, a brother or a sister, a friend. Though we have our individual grief, we are a community, together. Remember that! You are never alone.
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, You are with me.
