When we lose someone close to us it can feel so difficult to manage. Especially when that person was such a staple in the family or a cherished friend, and I speak to that with both personal and professional experience. I lost my father when I was young and still to this day find myself becoming emotional over the loss, especially when I realize he is not physically here during life’s milestones.
