Loss

I.S. lost his 爺爺 earlier this week and it got me thinking a lot about life, love, relationships and death. This is the first death that I.S. will have faced in his life and the first funeral he attends. It's also the first time I'll have seen this solemn side of him. The first time I dealt with death was nearly 15 years ago, which made me wonder how similar and/or different peoples' perspective is about death when they face it at different times in their lives. It also made me wonder how young or old people are when they first face it. It's been a crazy emotional week but I've been taking a lot of deep breaths to get through it all and thinking of his 爺爺's sweet face. He was a super cute man.
