Every person who lives anytime on planet earth will experience loss and grief; it will not be avoided. Some grief will be considered normal, yet still very difficult. Losing a parent is considered normal, yet it is still a great loss. While there are many factors on how great that loss is, any loss needs to be processed. This message is not one conceived with absolute understanding. I am still in the forest. I cannot tell you the path out yet, but I am on that journey. I can tell you, however, what the forest looks like and what it is like being lost in an unknown territory. All I see are trees.
