When someone dies we have no idea what happens. It’s a complete mystery to us but we know that the person will be forever missing from our lives.
We like to imagine that the person is in a better place and we hope that we will get to see them when we die. But the unknown is unsettling.
I went through several layers of emotions now that some of my loved ones have passed. And the only thing I know for sure is that death is a part of life. It is a part of the lives of the living. To continue to live is to witness the death of those we love. And I know that they would want me to continue to live even if they can’t live through each moment with me.
