It’s strange that we come into the world alone and we leave alone, yet we make so many connections throughout life. Small memories, shared experiences, enjoying particular books, smells or movies together, all these contribute to our love for one another. Just as we continue to love and connect to others, losing the ones we love is a natural flow in life’s journey. The losses, however painful, teach us important lessons. They help us to grow and become more tolerant and loving.
