The Dichotomy of Death
“There’s a dichotomy of death in that sometimes it walks slowly to the front door of your life and gives you plenty of time to get your affairs in order.
There has been a good life ……. you’ve time to say goodbye to the people you love …. you’ve had time to offer a prayer ….. It just walks slowly and gently to your front door.
Then, sometimes, it just kicks in the front door unexpectedly with no notice and you don’t even have time to say a prayer.
The word closure is used by people that have never suffered the loss of a child ….. because when you lose a child there is no closure.”
