I was visiting a fellow widowed friend and noticed this on their fridge. Such a simple statement but so important to remember.
"Grief never ends... But it changes.
It's a passage, not a place to stay.
Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith... It is the price of love"
Grief hurts as much as you loved. And it becomes as much a part of you as the person you grieve.
