“The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.” Henri Nouwen
“We are bound to the dead in a way that we are never bound to the living. No affection, no loyalty, no compassion, no tie is as strong and abiding with a living person as it is with a dead one. We must learn to live with our last words, our final actions, our sins of omission and commission, our neglects and regrets.” from the book Hatter Fox by Marilyn Harris (I love this book)
“Bereavement is the sharpest challenge to our trust in God; if faith can overcome this, there is no mountain which it cannot remove.” Dean Inge
