    This is so beautifully written. It really just shows that death and trauma affects each person differently and that not all deaths or experiences of trauma are equal. My grandfather passed away a few years ago from cancer and it took me quite a while to come to terms with it; especially because they live in Germany and we are here in Oregon. There was no way I was able to just hop in the car and drive to see him when his condition got worse. But eventually I came to terms with it and one day I hope to be able to visit his grave. But when a dear childhood friend, whom I haven’t spoken to but really wanted to rebuild our friendship, committed suicide, I was devastated. It’s been almost 2 years now and I still have so many questions.
    Both deaths have definitely required a totally different grieving process.
