July 23, 2004, Newsletter Issue #77: When someone `passes`

Tip of the Week

As people die, it is sometimes common to usually weep bitterly for an hour or so, and spend a few days of depression and mourning. But it often (depends on who dies) passes. It`s not grief over the death as such, but the realization that part of one`s own life is gone, never to return. It is often the same sense of loss as when you think of long-gone, happy days, that can never be relived. The difference is that with those memories you often can`t quite pin-point the precise moment of loss, whereas with a death, you can. The fact that emotions and tears continue for months, years even, is grief. That person slipped away, out of your life, and there is nothing you can do about it.
Who are we crying for? Them because they are missing all of the events, life and they died - or ourselves, because we miss them so and can`t have them and all they added to our lives, back? We can`t understand why but have to live as best as we can, keeping their memory in our hearts.

If you spend time remembering them, reading about death and
learning about it and related topics, it might help a lot.
