The LIV ON project was conceived out of the desire to transform my grief into healing. My sister, Rona had just died of glioblastoma and I was suffering greatly from her sudden death. I’ve always turned to music to process my emotions and help heal […]

About three years ago, I sat at the piano and started to play a melody I’d been hearing in my head. The only lyric that came to mind as I was playing it was “fulfilled.” I remember sitting there thinking about my father-in-law who had […]
Empowered Through Grief! Until now, HealGrief has been an online social support network for people who are grieving, bereaved or for those just wanting to support them. With an average of 2 people dying every second, potentially we serve the millions of those left behind. […]
Loss can divide us, but it can also unite us, as we are seeing in the case of Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher. Collectively we are trying to make sense of a large public loss that has affected many individually. Why? Because we invite film and the experience of it into our homes.
With that said, I believe Carrie was waiting for her mother on the other side of the very thin veil that separates the human form from the soul/spirit.
I think it is important to note however, that just because one parent dies soon after his/her child dies, does not mean that the parent loved his/her child more than any other parent who loses a child. I will write more on broken heart syndrome soon.
In the meantime, let’s all flood each other with kindness and understanding without platitudes or judgement. And yes, let’s be aware that the physical manifestation of grief can be traumatic stress on a body that is already undergoing stress due to age/health issues or other issues that we, the general public, may be unaware of.
Most important? Live now. Tell the people you love that you do indeed, love them. Park the phone and look these special souls in the eye — and say to him/her “Love you madly” or “So glad you’re in my life.” Plus, for gosh sakes resolve conflict with those important to you. Finish your unfinished business.
Why? Because as Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher just proved, you never, ever know when you will take your last breath. The body may die, but love lasts.
Sending love to all of you,

The thought of describing one’s journey of grief as “grace” seems unsettling, if not impossible. Grace, after all, is typically defined as elegance or beauty of form, manner, motion or action – or in many religious traditions as mercy, clemency or pardon. How in the […]
