    My heart hurts reading this. I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you <3

    It’s really hard for me to process death, just like everyone else tbh. One of my family’s close friends, who took care of me and my sister when we were growing up passed away due to cancer a few years ago (during my first-year uni exams) and I never had to grieve death until that moment. It was so difficult and still is, but always reminds me to never hold grudges and to move on full of love because you never know what life throws at you.

      Yup, absolutely. It’s normal that you don’t grieve right away after you hear the news. Some people have late reactions. That happened to me when my late grandfather passed away some two years after my family and I immigrated here in the U.S. It wasn’t until the day of his funeral that dawned on me and I began grieving myself, right after my parents were finished grieving.

      I was too young to experience death of a loved one, especially when they were really close to you. It was hard for me to process also and I didn’t know how to cope with it. I was absent for over a week when one of my friends died during my first year in high school. So did the rest of my friends too.

      Monday is his Vigil, Wednesday is his funeral. I’m still debating myself whether I should go to his funeral or not. I wasn’t able to go to my other friends’ funeral two years ago because of work. It was just too painful to see someone so close to you being buried or interred and all you see is ground or a wall with their names on it. But, I’m finished grieving. I was able to cope with it by singing (like mentioned in my blog post), that is, singing the songs my friend and his band performed during their golden years.
