Death is an emotive subject. In our modern culture most of us have little direct or personal experience of it. As a result, we can be ignorant or afraid of death and dying. Rather than accepting it as part of our life experience, we can find ourselves running away……
How we response to death depends on the nature of our relationship to the dying person. For instance, we will react quite to the death of a child than to the death of an elderly relative. We may be affected by the death of a close friend more than a close relative. We may grieve more acutely over the death of one parent or another.
