The Strange Mechanism of Grief- part two

If you've lost a beloved companion, you know that eventually you move on- mostly- or try to move past it. But when you least expect it, all that memory comes flooding back and holds you in its grip and takes your breath away for a beat too long. You're powerless to do anything but pay respect for a moment and acknowledge that the scar on your heart is a badge of honor.

Missing my boy, Oscar...

So sorry for your loss. I know *exactly* what you mean. I just lost my companion:

If you don't mind, I'd like to quote you. You nailed an incredibly deep, poignant emotion that so many can relate to (especially me). I was moved by it! Thank you. --tcr
