Grief catches us at the most unexpected moments. It’s not always the day and moment in which our loved one left us, but the days before and after the loss that haunt us the most. The surrounding moments and hours and days and months are somehow the hardest because we remember everything we didn’t get to say or the circumstances in our lives that followed. The anniversary of a passing will come and go in a few days, just as the day did when they left us. The truth is that the moment of death is peaceful and sacred. Death is the easy part. It’s everything that surrounds death that causes our grief.
