I would have to second Reverend Bill's words and remember them by their accomplishments and past memories with them. I have lost people unexpectedly and it never goes away but you do learn to cope.

I also agree with Reverend Bamboozle, I have seen death of a loved one permanently cripple people before. I know when my father goes it is going to take a major part of me.
