appreciation, or ask for forgiveness, and so can make you far

more sensitive to your loved ones who are alive. Elisabeth

Kübler-Ross said, "What I try to teach people is to live in such

a way that you say those things while the other person can

still hear it." 9 And Raymond Moody, after his life's work in

near-death research, wrote: "I have begun to realize how near

to death we all are in our daily lives. More than ever now I

am very careful to let each person I love know how I feel." 10

So my heartfelt advice to those in the depths of grief and

despair after losing someone they dearly loved is to pray for

help and strength and grace. Pray you will survive and discover

the richest possible meaning to the new life you now

find yourself in. Be vulnerable and receptive, be courageous,

and be patient. Above all, look into your life to find ways of

sharing your love more deeply with others now.
