    • i allow myself to grieve alone, then i allow myself to grieve with others.  try and get back to my normal daily routines.  give myself a break and go away for a short while if i find these things are not helping.

    • Keep putting one foot in front of the other and moving forward.  That’s really all you can do.

    • I’m still trying to figure it all out since losing both my parents this year. Each day seems to get a little better.

    • Death is something WE ALL are going to experience at some point in our lives.  It’s inevitable.  None of us are checking out of here ALIVE.
      But after losing both of my parents...my father April 12, 1998 and my mother December 28, 2009...I am truly at peace.  For me...it’s not “goodbye” but “see you later“.  When I die I will see them again and knowing that gives me great comfort.  They are in a much better place than you and I.  If God said he would give them back to me just as they were I would say to Him ..“oh no..I do not want them back“.  They are healed...living with God Almighty and I’m okay.  

      But for me it is sometimes hard for me to cry when people die and for some odd reason I can handle the situation at the time.  But depending on who the deceased is and their relationship to me....will determine how much I grieve.  I know that sounds crazy but I am able to help others in their time of grief...be compassionate...but I don’t break down.  

      I will also state though I have not lost anyone close to me that was not a parent.  I’ve not lost a sibling or a child or a very close friend.  So I can’t say how I will react when or if those happen for me.

    • I know this is warped...but even during death...I try to find humor is SOMETHING.  I think it’s a coping mechanism.  But I do believe in sharing stories about the deceased especially if they are funny.  We must always remember the good times...the funny times....and celebrate their life.

    • I grieve in my own personal space and for some reason that can affect my dreams.
