I won’t be able to live without her…I won’t be able to manage. I won’t be able to handle life without her presence… See? Where are we thinking of the person concerned in this? All we are worried is about ourselves.
- Our loss was immeasurable… but then, so was the love she left behind for us… and the memories…
Do consider reading this impactful quick-read book (available here). There were a lot of eye openers for me.
