Then we are all left with the question of how do you let go of someone? You have no choice but to 'bury' them and move on. But moving on sounds so harsh. What is moving on if it's not forgetting? And if you never forget how do you function? It's something of a miracle that people come into the world and kind of a shock when they leave. The depth of the pain reflects the heights of our love I suppose. I am not sure if it is any easier when someone dies at the socially expected times. Maybe we never expect it. Maybe we are never ready. I am left with the feeling that all we can do for anyone is love them as good as we can and hope they take care of themselves as best as they can and not be angry when they're gone.
Here's a sweet little song from the band Icewater (Grant and his friends) directed by their high school friend Dennis.
