However, not everyone is able to bear such a burden on their own – which is why we’re here to help you get through this difficult time while providing comfort during these sad times.

#47 He will remain part of me and always in my heart–even if he isn’t physically there anymore. So please let him know how much I love him with every beat of my heart; even though right now I am far away from him, I will always be with him in spirit.

#48 When you lose a loved one it’s natural to feel grief, anger and pain–even if their death wasn’t expected or caused by an accident. But during this difficult time, please remember that within your soul is a beautiful power – a light so bright that no darkness can ever extinguish.
