Hey guys, I lost my Great-Grandmother in 1998. Tonight I have been thinking about her intermittently and realising that it doesn't get any easier. I was always told that some elements of grief would subside. I understood this to mean that it would stop hurting and though I truly believe that time is a healer to be frank, it still hurts. My Great-Grandmother was very close to us all and her loss has resulted in an obvious breach in our ability as a family to just simply move along. I know that some of you here have experienced loss in your family and maybe in your friendships. How do you deal with it? Is it still painful after all this time for you as well? Do you try to fill the gap or just continue in the knowledge that it will never be filled? How do you deal with life when death is involved? Is there progress to be made?
