Grief, O Unhappy Friend

Having heard once, by a healthcare provider, of my need for “closure,” and having that sentiment sit with distaste in my mouth, it is lovely to see the reason for my discomfiture so eloquently explained:

We have no reason for “closure” of the past; certainly not for closure of Donna’s place in our lives. The magnitude of our heartache reflects the magnitude of our love. The world would indeed be bleak if human beings could not care so much.

  1. Closure would imply an end. Grief has no end, only that it subsides with time.
    St. Gerard, pray for us.
