Sometimes, it feels as if we are eavesdropping on day-to-day conversations rather than just hearing the usual litany of platitudes and regrets.
From George Rieger:
I have always respected your writing, but was disappointed with your comments about grief counseling in your review of "Hesher." My wife is a grief counselor, having worked at a hospice for 11 years. She has a gift of being able to come into strangers lives at the most difficult times and offer them support, guidance, and relief.
Often, it is difficult to seek comfort from those with whom you are the closest; they may be struggling with the same loss. If you have discouraged one person from accepting, or seeking help, you have done a disservice. And consider that grief is about all loss, not necessarily that of the death of someone close.
I hope you reconsider your judgement of grief counseling.
