Grief lasts as long as it lasts. There will always be a hole in your heart that's the shape of that life, which you knew however briefly. ... that hole will never be filled in by anybody else. It will be with you your whole life, but it will soften and get filled in over time. It gets filled with love and happy memories, and with the prayer or hope that the life energy will go on - that it will reemerge in a beneficial place."
Jan Chozen Bays, Roshi "For the Children We've Lost" Shambhala Sun, May 2015
