An old friend father passed away

Early this morning, received this notification that an old friend dad had passed away.

This is a good way for the family to say good bye to close an important chapter. Many of my friends have similar farewell experience with their departed parents. I was never so "lucky". There must be quite a few like me but I don't personally know them. There are also some whose parent passed away as unbelievers e.g., my former pastor. He grieved for many years, but by and large most seem to just accept it.

A parent's death is a complex experience which perhaps takes a lifetime to sort out. Most people don't talk about it and I think partly because they don't know how to.
