Factsheet 21: Reflections on grief by Doris Zagdanski

"Goodbyes hurt more than anything especially when deep down you know you will never say hello again."

"I am losing my best friend & I can't do anything about it but cry."

"You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have."

"No matter how long it's been...There are still times when I think of you and suddenly it gets harder to breathe."

"Sometimes your heart needs more time to accept what your mind already knows."

"Today will never come again.
Be a blessing. Be a friend.
Encourage someone. Take time to care.
Let your words heal, and not wound.
Today will never come again."

"My mother has died. We are all completely exhausted. One feels in one's bones the significance of blood ties." Albert Einstein
