Angela, I remember as if it was yesterday attending the service for your daughter, one of the saddest events of my life. Your take on grief is right one, for those of us fortunate to move gradually away from it are the lucky ones versus the ones that remain stuck in it.
I have come to believe that death is just an illusion, for our love and soul can never perish. Thank-you so much for reaching out to me and if you meet someone that is experiencing grief suggest my book to them, I have been told by many who have suffered loss that it brings much comfort.
Wishing you much peace and love…..mike
