We can learn from those who have endured it, so that we might better serve others who grieve, as well as prepare ourselves to find grounding in grief when it visits us.

Just 11 days after  Victoria's funeral, we would congregate in the same church at Charlie's. Like her death, his rocked our community. Warm, friendly, giving Charlie died by suicide.
