I have lost countless pets, friends, family, even my wife. It is a painful experience that seems to take forever to fade. When the initial pain of the act is gone, you unfortunately have to bear the memories as well. I have a great deal of trouble with the latter. In spite of it all I have realized that, although difficult to bear, I was better off for the experience than not. So I have tried to train myself to making the fondness foremost and suppressing the grief. Some things in life just aren't easy and I hope that the passing of time will allow you to heal and grow with little or no scars.
