When A Loved One Dies

When someone has just part of a soul or heart, death is never easy. Even if it is self-defense, many people would rather resolve the situation another way. We all know eventually we will have to deal with the issue of death and dying. This doesn't make the issue any easier. The deaths seemingly the hardest to take are children and people close to us, like parents, our children, and close friends. The closer the person was to us in life, the longer the sting is felt from their passing. I wish there was some way to get rid of this emptiness inside. The only thing that happens is eventually we begin to move on with the memories. At times, the memories are the only strengths that keep us going. Most people believe in some form of an Utopian afterlife while some believe the grave is the end. In either case, it would be nice to make the most of  this life for those who are left behind. The positive memories you help create and leave behind will likely be what helps those who are still here make it through.
