Our expert says:
So sorry to hear of your loss, Ntando. A wise friend of mine who studied grief and loss and bereavement once wrote that Grief is the price we pay for love - once we allow ourselves to really love someone, then losing them, in whatever way, at whatever time, will hurt. But the love itself, however brief, is usually worth paying for even with the later sadness.
But he didn't leave you. Remember that. Something very sad happened by accident. In a way, he is still alive within your memories. Grief is hard work, but it gradually eases, over 6 months or more, until you can with more happiness remember the good things about him, rather than thinking only with bitterness about the loss.
