Death is not sad.
He’s free. I cannot say for sure if there’s joy in that freedom, but woe is definitely lacking. And relief flourishes.
You think this was unexpected? No. Plan B is finished. Plan A has only just begun.
Life is precious, to be lived. When it is over, it is over. Learning to let go is a skill that some people never learn. Understanding why we need to let go is a realization balanced between peace and terror, essential to the evolution of a soul.
Be selfless, not selfish in these times.
