Grief and the loss of a loved one isn’t something that we give much thought to. Aside from the odd worry here and there, we don’t spend our lives worrying about death or thinking about how we would cope if we lost someone close. Nor should we. Life is short, and it shouldn’t be wasted with worries about things that we’ve got no control over. It’s enough to be aware that life is a precious thing that will one day end for all of us.
