mother hugs man who killed her daughter

Imagine waking up one day, thinking it’s just like any other day… and then BAM! Someone you love is dead. One minute they were there and you were making plans, the next? They’re just… gone.

Losing someone you love is never easy. But at least with illness, disease, or old age, you have time to prepare yourself for the loss. You can make sure you enjoy each and every moment you have together and say your goodbyes…

“Forgiveness is not always easy. At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness.”
– Marianne Williamson
