It's Been 6 Years, Why Is It Still So Hard?

MJM,

I'm afraid time is irrelevant in grief. I wrote this down (I think Marty quoted it in one of her posts) and I think it hits the nail on the head.

"Grief...is only the beginning. After a time it becomes something less sharp, but larger too, a more enduring thing called loss."

MJM,

I am new at this (my mom died 4 months ago), but I imagine that if I fast forward my life to 6 years from now, that I will always be remembering her (and my dad) and what they are missing and that will be what will be sad to me.

Hang in there. I am learning that grieving and death are just a part of living and life. It sometimes cannot be put into words or feelings. It just is.

MJM,

I am also new at this, having lost my father at the end of October. I can't even think of the next month, let alone the next few years. I'm actually afraid of the next few years. I'll be afraid of the fading memories. Maybe as time goes on I'll learn to cope a little better. But the experience of the loss will probably always sting.
