Their bereavement consequently comes as a shock; a bolt from the blue. A sudden death rips apart people's lives. Most recent high profile sudden deaths have occurred during sleep or just before. For the majority the causes are not clear-cut.
I find the science of sleep and paranormal experiences quite fascinating, so I am far more intrigued than terrified when I read that “A Nightmare on Elm Street” creator Wes Craven was inspired by actual news stories about nightmare-related deaths.
Everyone is different, and grief is a very individual experience. How people respond to a loved one dying suddenly may depend on many factors unique to them, including their personalities, what has happened in their life previously, and their personal situation now.
However, it is clear that people bereaved suddenly often suffer very much. They often have acute and lengthy support needs.
One of the recent sudden deaths involved the first born son of My Professor, A teacher, Mentor and role model.
They are a very private family, so all my respects to them as I share my feelings about their loss.
So harsh, and sorrowful, as only loving parents can feel the loss of a firstborn son, to a fate so sudden, irreversible and tragic in its finality.
“In our culture when you loose a child especially the first born and he’s a boy, its like “cutting the head of snake”- The pain of a father talking about his departed son.
“As human beings we actually simply survive from minute to minute irrespective of social, economic and political status or race”. The Professor reminded us always during his lectures on Cancer.
My Professor, I've decided to write you a small note, of encouragement at this trying moment. We can “Never compare your grief. You - and only you, walk your path.”With our support. God-WillingTake a fertility test today
