((((Abba))))

Oh Abba, I am so sorry for the loss of your daughter! I've lost a spouse, a parent and a sister, but can't imagine the pain of losing one's own child.

I agree that a new loss revives the memory of every death that has gone before. The loss of my mother last year has revived a lot of the sorrow I had in losing my husband.

It does seem at times that others WANT us to just forget those that are gone before. Very sad, isn't it. I suppose it is part and parcel of a modern culture that doesn't seem to respect and learn much from the past, but instead to focus on the new, the young and famous, and the here-and-now.

LOL, starting to sound like a grumpy old lady there....
