Catherine’s realizations about death
  • Catherine feels so sad that her daughters do not have a Nanna.
  • “Everyone needs someone in their lives who the sun rises and sets for them.”
  • “I really miss her. She is the only one who listened to the detail of my life.”
  • Grief doesn’t go away – it pops up at odd times.
  • You’ve got to roll with it when grief comes.
  • We in the Western world don’t do grief very well.
  • It will be OK, maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but one day it will get better.
