Genuine Grief

Last night a friend shared with me that his twin brother had died at age 15. "Two years", he said, "now you will start to know genuine grief." Work with Sickkids helped salve the ache as I quickly flipped from images of loss to presentations, meetings, projects and gratitude. This mental gymnastics now feels like a trick as I accept that once in while I will be washed by tears and sudden heartache for what was, what will never be and a wife and two beautiful daughters in the present.
