I don’t know if anyone else started to sing when you saw this headline, but I know that the old jingle from a McDonald’s commercial from the 70’s started playing in head as I was typing it. (See commercial) Now, I don’t have any intentions of going to McDonald’s and I...

Is it even possible for things to get ‘back to normal’ after someone you love passes? I don’t think so. I have found that with the passing of a loved one, a friend, and even an acquaintance, there is no going back to the way things were when they were still here with...
