Dr. Virginia A. Simpson – The Bereavement Care Specialist
I would love to see people have compassion for each other, so that no one would feel the need to hide their sadness. I wish, when someone we love dies, people would ask what that person meant to us, rather than placing a label on the loss and assuming it meant nothing, thereby leaving us alone when we most need their love and friendship. I would like people to tell children the truth about life: Teach them at a very young age about death, when they are curious, so they won’t have to grow up afraid. I would love for us all to have compassion for others who hurt and for ourselves when it is our time to hurt. No one should ever apologize for tears because they only mean we have loved and we miss the person we lost and the life we shared together.
