Grief is not an event we “get over”, but a process —learning to live our life in a different way, creating a new relationship with the person so dearly missed and growing our life around the sadness that we feel. Memorial Verses is a personal reflection of the grief encountered by the author after the death of her much loved father. As the writing brought comfort to Dorothy Kelly, so may reading the verses console others..
