Life and Death

Someone very close to me died last year. It was a time of intense grief, but we all got over it in whatever way we could. Now a year has passed and as I talk with the people left behind, it is yet another reaffirmation that life doesn't stop for anything. Only death stops.

In the death anniversary being celebrated (is that the right word for someone who died?) for this person, all I heard were accounts of people meeting after a long time, renewing old bonds - no real mention of the person who passed away. Maybe we all were avoiding that topic to avoid upsetting each other, but it struck me as sadly funny that the person who died was indeed gone - no antics or occupation left to report.

I guess, life's like that.

I like the word celebrated here...its celebrating the life that was. Like you said, life does move on and all that is ultimately left is memories - whether you talk about it or not.

Someone very close to me died 9 months ago.9 months later I found my self in the same position as you.In my mind I believe we should celebrate life,not death.But funerals and what comes after unfortunatly remind s only what we have lost.Life goes on,memoreis stay forever.

I love your wording "only death stops." I understand what you mean. I lost someone close to me a long time ago.. and for the first few years a group of us would get together on the date that friend died. It always felt sad that he wasn't mentioned as much as me probably should have been.

I second what Fangyong said! Seriously though, death's a bitch but sometimes you wonder what might be in the ever-after. Atleast, that's how I look at it - maybe your friend's having a blast in some alternate reality.
