Losing a dear one is one of the most difficult experiences of the human existence. The closer the loved one is to us, the deeper the pain becomes. In a moment, our world can be shattered. How do I go on without my friend, husband, mother, father, son, daughter... or the child that was to be?There are certainly no easy answers and the process of living after a death so near can be an overwhelming task. How can I laugh again? How dare I move forward when the one I love is gone? Why have my friends abandoned me to live out this pain alone? How can I find the desire and will to continue? We must continue, and we must trust that God, who understands the acuity of our every suffering and pain, is able to bear our burden and comfort us in our time of need. He will ensure that you make it though, although it is unlikely that you will make it though the same.
