“You will survive the loss, and you will find a way, as my friend Brian says, to live on without this person you didn’t think you could live without. You’ll find a way to hold the person you love close and incorporate him into your life in a way where you’ll be able to find the beauty and access the happy memories along with the sad ones. It becomes this kind of both/and. You’ll never stop longing for the person who died but you’ll have the space and capacity to remember him and hold him close to you.” Margo Fowkes
