This chapter has proved to be the most emotionally draining chapter to work on and truly is the one holding me up from finishing sooner. Life and death go hand in hand and each of us are affected differently by them. I’ve lost many in my 37 years here on Earth but the hardest loss was my father in 2009. I’m amazed at the things I learned through this loss and continue to learn. I struggle with grieving for him, even today, almost seven years later.
Not only does this chapter discuss loss but I am delving into thoughts I have on my own mortality. My hopes, along the same lines as the rest of the book, is to let people know they are not alone in their struggle or thoughts when dealing with these types of situations.
