A quote I ran across

"When someone you love dies, and you're not expecting it, you don't lose [them] all at once; you lose [them] in pieces over a long period of time- the way the mail stops coming, and [their] scent fades from the pillows and even from the clothes in [their] closet and drawers. Gradually, you accumulate the parts of [them] that are gone. Just when the day comes- when there's a particular missing part that overwhelms you with the feeling that [they're] gone- forever- there comes another day, and another specifically missing part."
