Sometimes this work can be so daunting, for many reasons; mostly, at least lately, is the incredible losses experienced by loved ones left behind. It's impossible not to think about when looking into these cases. Thinking about and hoping for some sort of eternal connectivity is one of the few things that gets me through the incredible darkness of loss.
