No one is immune to grief. There are those amongst us today
who have grieved deeply in the past, and there are those
who are grieving deeply now and sadly. All of us will grieve
at some time in the future.
There is no cure for grief which time does not lessen and soften.
He that conceals his grief finds no remedy for it.
One joy scatters a hundred griefs.
The world is not full of grief and despair as we view on TV most of the time.
There is good in this world that supercedes evil.
Byron Pulsifer, Each Life Is A Journey
Ask anyone who has lost someone close to them how their life
changed after they lost their loved one, and they will tell you that
the before and after their grief was so drastically different that
they truly felt that they grew from the experience.

with you through these difficult times.
Byron Pulsifer, Reflection Of Life
While grief is fresh, every attempt to divert only irriates.
You must wait till it be digested, and then amusement will
dissapte the remains of it.

that one is no longer battling reality and has come to a place
of acceptance of what is.
Every one can master a grief but he that has it.
