  •  First, it was my pleasure to help out -- (13+ / 0-)

    and helping total strangers (as well as friends and family) is what makes the world better a tiny little kernel at a time, right?

    And how odd is it that I had had such a similar experience?  You pick someone sort of randomly, and your draft hits home with them in a stunning way.  Clearly, you had the right instinct, whether you knew it or not.  ;)

    As for what things things bring up for all of us... I think no one would be here and reading if they weren't, to a pretty large extent, ready to deal with the feelings it's bound to trigger.  Honestly, I don't come here much.  Too hard for me.  But I'm glad I read your piece, and came here and read the comments.

    Mostly what people need in grief is an assurance that it's what we all feel; a reminder that (as I told you) grief is a reflection of love and for that reason never to be suppressed; and mostly someone to listen and bear witness.
