My fascination with grief began when I was 19 years old. My maternal grandfather died one day before my 19th Birthday after battling cancer.  I was devastated for my mom and then months went by and she wasn’t who she use to be.  Nothing appealed to her, she cried all the time, and her sadness Read more
