Don't grieve alone
We are eternal beings who will never be separated from our loved ones. ~ R. Craig Hogan, Ph.D.
I wanted to share an idea of what we can do with pictures of our loved ones. Nancy Gershman, a digital artist, creates meaningful portraits from photos, memories and stories that we think about every day. Here is a sample of her work:
DREAMSCAPE PHOTOMONTAGE: Myrtle pays homage to the memory of her twin and keeps a promise to her sister. As long as she lives she will keep her nephew - who is a trucker - safe on the road.
I know Nancy's work and I’ve seen how she captures the entire essence of a person and the real truth about their character, their passions and their mission in life.
What Nancy does is digest all these photos, memories and stories until they re-emerge as a holistic portrait of the person you love. You see your father, sister, or beloved poodle, thoughtfully placed into a beautiful legacy portrait for you, but also for generations to come. The end result is that her artwork makes you smile or even laugh.
For the 30 - 60 minutes you spend with her by phone, she delivers a meaningful, heartfelt fine art photomontage in the form of an 8 x 10 print (or enlargement). She can also upload the artwork so you can make something to wear or display (photoblanket, photo-purse, photo trivet, etc.) -- however you want to keep that loved one close by.
I encourage you to view the documentary on Nancy Gershman’s work.

After talking to a friend that had lost her sister to suicide 6 years ago, I'm wondering if I should burn my suicide letter. Do I need to keep it for anyone else to read. It's very painful to read it. But I wonder if it would benefit either of my kids to read it when they are old enough to better understand.anyone dealt with this?
My husband and I had discussed that this past year we were going to tell my son the truth about santa, etc. Then my husband passed in October so I didn't want to take that magical experience away from him even though he's 9 because it was so close to his father passing. Now with Easter coming up- has it been long enough to tell him the truth about the bunny since he is 9 now or should I let him hold that for one more year? Very torn.
I went to see a friend that lost her sister to suicide 6 years ago. For the first time I actually feel a little normal. Knowing that what I feel is normal. I'm empty, angry at the world. I've tried to think of anyone that I don't feel mad at. And there is no one. The world is unfair. Nothing really takes away your pain. And I'll always have the what if scenarios running through my head. And why? None of it makes sense and never will.
