You're Not Alone

"The deep pain that is felt at the death of every friendly soul arises from the feeling that there is in every individual something which is inexpressible, peculiar to him alone, and is, therefore, absolutely and irretrievably lost." ~Arthur Schopenhauer

We’ve also provided helpful hints for those who love you to be the best allies they can be at this time.
