Three Years

I used to not understand how people do not get over this. It must mean that there is an eternal life, because memories don't work and this present "extinction" does not work either. 

"If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world." 
― C.S. Lewis

I wish there was something that I could do, or say to ease the pain and sorrow you have, Brigitte.

I don't know that kind of sorrow. Not yet.

You are always in my prayers, dear friend.

There is so much joy in the world and so much sorrow. We all know this and it sounds almost trite to say.

It just is a revelation to me that this loss is never overcome psychologically. It's good for people to understand, including myself. It does not mean that there is no comfort, or hope, or life, only that this particular pain is permanent, and that's just how it is. I hope this teaches me to be more humble and compassionate in considering other people's losses, as I am not always the gentlest, though I think I am a good listener.
