This reflection on grief was written by my friend and colleague Josephine Wheeler, you can read the introduction below and the full contents on her blog.
My friend, Grief, is someone who has been a part of my life for longer than I ever realized she was…Grief was always just an acquaintance to me. We would run into each other on occasion and have brief interactions, but nothing more. On June 11th, 2018, I became a closer friend with Grief. A moment I will never forget. After this day, I was longing to get to know her in a way many others don’t. I wanted to know her story – who she was, where she comes from, her goals, the different sides of her she shows the world.
