Grief is a sea of tears

Grief is a sea of tears that ebbs and flows. Now, so soon after that last goodbye, the waves are huge, engulfing me completely so I can feel nothing except sorrow, then retreating briefly, leaving me exhausted.  But just as the real sea calms after a storm, so I know my grief will steady over time. It will never disappear completely. I will always miss you. But eventually I will be healed by the warmth of your remembered smile and once again be happy.

    I hope you and Steve can feel the huge surge of love which is flowing towards you from all your friends and colleagues. I have just re-read Matt’s beautiful piece, Now I can Live Again. How fortunate you were to have such an intelligent and talented son.
    All my love, Ragnhild
