INTERESTING – Professor Dame Sue Black, a forensic anthropologist writes:’The stark truth is, of course, that grief never dies. The American consellor Lois Tonkin reminds us that loss isn’t something that we ‘get over’, and it doesn’t necessarily lesson, either. It remains at the core of us and we just expand our lives around it, burying it deeper from the surface. So with time it may become more distant, more compartmentalised and therefor easier to manage, but it doesn’t go away’
