Six Months | What I've Learned {or re-learned}

Grief is different for everyone.
There is no right way or wrong way to grieve.
End of.
***
Arranging a funeral and subsequent internment of ashes requires courage,
 practicality and a black sense of humour.  
***
Friends and family move on differently.  And at different speeds.
***
It's easy to allow communication with others who loved the deceased
to become sporadic.  It's harder to bridge the gap.
***
Love doesn't die.  Grief doesn't end.
You never 'get over it', you merely get better at coping with the loss.
