By far, the great majority of folks we've shared our grief with have been wonderfully supportive from the beginning. On the other hand, although I can't say we've yet encountered anyone who would come right out and call it "sin," surely a few have made us feel it is "unspiritual" to continue to grieve at our current level. Often, it seems, such folks tend to hang on to their own assumptions, and may be the last ones who would pause to read a post such as this. I'm sharing this now, mainly because it is too good NOT to, and for those, our fellow-mourners, who may experience that twinge of guilt or self-condemnation, especially as they find themselves among others who just don't understand.
