Hi there Rebecca. Thanks for accepting my invitation. Losing a life partner, friend, sister, parent, or a child, is the most traumatic stressful emotional thing you can go through. If you hear bad news about yourself, you do what is necessary to prepare others for your absence.... you are in a different driving seat to the others who watch, helpless. Sorrow is like love I think. There are varying depths, heights and colours. The intensity is never identical. Having encouragement, words someone has taken the time to send - means much to those who mourne. Thankyou.
