Anne, a family member of mine, passed away at 7 AM on Monday morning in Illinois from complications due to Cancer. I found this passage in a book of Jackie Kennedy's favorite poems:

"God, whose law it is that he who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget, falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despite, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God."

To me it explains how I feel about us having to learn life lessons- Surviving another person's death being one of them.
