    I'm Not Able

    It seems to me, that having gone through the loss of loved ones many times since I was 8 would  have given me some kind of insight.  Knowing what people need from us in their own time of loss.  But it did not give me any insight.  Nothing ever made me feel any...

    Oil and Water

    What Do You Say?

    What can you say to someone who's lost a loved one or relative? Anything I might say sounds lame and pointless. But you can't just pretend nothing's happened.
