Loss: What Do You Do When There is No Closure?

Good morning,

I am sorry to hear of the loss of your friend, and that you were unable to participate in her official memorial. You may have to create your own, very personal memorial of sorts. You and your friend shared moments together that belong to only you and only you would know how to memorialize that.

But even that may not bring what you seek. Closure is a strange animal; it can come quickly or take years.

@sheridonaldson Thank you for your very thoughtful, kind suggestion.

I am planning on doing my own "eulogy" if you will. My intent is to write a few paragraphs and send the thoughts to her son and her husband so that they can know how my friend and I were prayer partners for each other and how we supported each other with hospital visits and showing kindness to others who were also ill.

Is that somewhat of what you were referring to?
