11. Do you remember what Joe Biden said to family members who lost a loved one in Iraq?

He said, "Even though you may not believe it now, the day will come when the memory of your loved one will bring a smile to your lips before it brings a tear to your eye." I remembered that. It was so caring and tender.

I had a very tough time getting over the sudden death of a beloved sister in law. I couldn't seem to get any better and I reached out to friends I know who have suffered terrible losses. They told me that eventually time would help. They were right. I now have wonderful conversations with her grown kids about our funny, warm memories of their mom. We are able to smile and be happy that she lived and touched our lives.

Take care of yourself and grieve and share your thoughts if you wish to. I wish you the very best.
