How Do We Cope With The Loss of a Loved One?

 “You think the dead we loved ever truly leave us? You think that we don’t recall them more clearly than ever in times of great trouble? Your father is alive in you, Harry, and shows himself plainly when you have need of him.” – Professor Dumbledore – Harry Potter and The Prisoner Of  Azkaban...
