Following Bailey: The Year of Death

Humans react to death differently than any other being on earth. While the stages of grief are well documented, reality will dictate that each of us handle things differently than the next person. There are no books which will truly prepare us for losing those who we love the most. The majority of us are eventually left to cope on our own. We will have little in the way of support in the weeks and months after the death. Inevitably we will find ourselves alone for periods of time while life around continues whether we thnk it should or not.

These days, though, you also need to decide what will happen to your online life after death. What can you do to prepare for it, and what can you do to help if someone close to you passes away?

It was a loss that has made an undeniable alteration to her life's path. We all know that everyone expresses their grief differently. Some people turtle and withdraw, while others lean on those in the community for support. Bailey has opted for the latter because she realises that "healing from grief is not the process of forgetting, it is the process of remembering with less pain and more joy" (author unknown).
