Two excerpts are as follows: "It is probably going to be with you for long time to come. You think you are 'over it' and suddenly something pulls the trigger. It could be a photograph or a memory or a holiday, especially a holiday. Like an attack dog it comes out of nowhere."
"Most of us have been struck dumb when it comes to knowing what to say to a grieving friend or relative. We do not know what to say or do because we live in a society that knows no etiquette in such matters. Admittedly, it is very delicate because none of us wishes to intrude or cause more pain, but, remember, the grieving do need support."
