Departures and Grief

Eadar Doodles + Cheese

I’ve been preoccupied with death today. More accurately with grief.

A colleague found out on Monday that her sister had died. Based on what they know so far, she died in her sleep. The sister had not suffered with a long-time illness. She was healthy in all appearances. Strong, happy, and healthy is how my colleague described her. Happy.

    1. Hello Didis, it’s not actually my post but someone else’s…Thank you for your concern. But grief is a really strange thing, isn’t it? To be there one day and quickly gone the next… But yes, we’re never really separated in the end…

        Thank you very much, dear friend
        Have a good tme in peace and harmony
