Strong Men Do Cry
And once the storm is over, you won't remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won't even be sure, whether the storm is really over.
But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won't be the same person who walked in. That's what this storm's all about.
- Haruki Murakami
Pain makes you stronger, tears make you braver, and heartbreak makes you wiser, so thank your past for a better future.

in the world die away...

I cannot speak, but I can listen. I cannot be seen, but I can be heard. So as you stand upon a shore gazing at a beautiful sea, As you look upon a flower and admire its simplicity,
From Remember Me by Margaret Mead
Death ends a life, not a relationship.
Grief is like the ocean; it comes on waves ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it is overwhelming.
All we can do is learn to swim.
What we have enjoyed, we can never lose... all that we
love deeply becomes a part of us. Helen Keller
He that conceals his grief finds no remedy for it.
No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear.
To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.
Love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.
Unable are the loved to die. For love is immortality.
It's so curious: one can resist tears and 'behave' very well in the hardest hours of grief.
But then someone makes you a friendly sign behind a window, or one notices that a flower that was in bud only yesterday has suddenly blossomed, or a letter slips from a drawer...and everything collapses.
Beauty and pain co-exist. But when we are in the early phases of grieving, in order to eventually see beauty in the world again, we must first feel and inhabit our pain.
We needn 't eschew grief to be happy, and we needn't decry happiness in order to feel grief .

21 Comforting Quotes about Death
ARE YOU A BEREAVED MOTHER OR FATHER?
We are two bereaved parents who have teamed up with researchers at Yeshiva University and Memorial Sloan Kettering to study how the death of a child impacts parents’ lives, and the resulting ripple effects as life continues without our children. We invite you to participate in a survey which will help us develop resources to better support parents experiencing the heartbreak of child loss.
For mothers or fathers who have lost a child (or children) of any age, and would like to make a contribution to our understanding of bereaved parenthood, this is a way to make a difference.
If you would like to participate in our study, please fill out this confidential survey at https://yeshiva.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_cUXcBDFIiWAg6Ng It will take about 20 minutes.
For more details, you can contact the Principal Investigator:
Kailey Roberts, PhD, Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychology, Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, Yeshiva University.
Thank you for your consideration --
