Well stated. Thank you for sharing from your experience.

And I think we need to consider non-death griefs as well. In the span of a couple of weeks this month, my closest local friend died and I also had to leave my job due to growing toxicity in the work environment. The ways that these two griefs (which simply represent two from this month) are tangling together are exhausting and overwhelming - as they both come with secondary losses as well. Just a reminder to be kind and grace-giving - so often we don't know the whole story.
