"I've always thought about death a lot", differences in families; some families don't talk about death or people in the family who have died, others often reminisce about family members who have died. Times have changed, everyone is busy and family members are spread out across the country, thus less time to come together to grieve. When people die at home, there is more time to accept and be together, now often, families are not with the person often when they die and everyone is so busy. Taking care of the property, funeral arrangements, etc) becomes another arrangement in the busy schedules.

Then there are those who work in palliative care and I value their sharing of their accompanying the dying. And there are always those who are curious about their own death, some frightened and some wanting to face it in a conscious way. This time, once more, there was some one who shared their near death experience and we are all interested ...

Sometimes couples learn to dance so well together that when one of them dies, the other can scarcely navigate the dance floor. To lose the love of one’s life is to feel like a part of us has been amputated. There is a vacancy, an emptiness that can never be filled. No matter how wondrous the people we meet in the future, the amputated limb can never be replaced or regrown.
The word “widow ...
