I lost my mother at age 20 when I was in college at Syracuse University. I could so relate to your beautifully written piece. I also didn’t cry much at first, didn’t know how or where to grieve, didn’t know how to relate to my friends who were having “the best four years of their lives.” I’m sending you all my warm wishes.
