“The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not ‘get over’ the loss of a loved one; you will not learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same nor would you want to.”Eisabeth Kubler-Ross and David Kessler
