Loss hurts. The hurt is so deep that the idea of the word hurt itself trivializes the severity of the deep pain that exists. This week my family suffered a tragic loss, and my family will forever hurt. Loss does have its’ shades of beauty though, for in the shadows of tragedy we find great support and great love from those around us. In the embrace of tragedy’s midst, we are we are reminded of the greatness of love, family, and life.
Unable are the loved to die. For love is immortality. -Emily Dickenson
