Good Grief: Death and Dying

When I was in college, I took a class called, On Death and Dying, based on a book by Elizabeth Kubler Ross.  It was interesting but I dreaded actually experiencing heart-breaking loss. Losing an animal was always tough but I knew I needed to understand good grief when it came to death and dying.When I was in college, I took a class called, On Death and Dying, based on a book by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross.  It was interesting but I dreaded actually experiencing heart-breaking loss.

With respect to that time, there are moments when God gives us some sign of levity that things will be okay. I experienced several  “anointed” moments in those low times.

Recently, Thomas and I attended the funeral/memorial service of a wonderful servant.  It truly was a celebration of a “life well lived” but l a death too soon. Still, this is the type of “send-off” we all pray for.
