This is a collection of personal writings about my experiences and understanding of grief and death, designed to help others prepare for the death of a loved one and navigate the grieving process. I have lost someone in just about every kind of relationship except for losing a child. This is normal for people in my age group. But I find that sharing my observations and what I have learned helps give each death a little more meaning. If I can learn and help through their death, it is as if they shared the lessons with you too. I hope these articles that I post will help.
