    How do you handle sudden, unexpected death?

    My cousin died 4 years ago today (April 4).  He was only 23.   Unexpected because it was a one-vehicle accident -- flipped into the ditch.  My Aunt wears his thumbprint on a necklace - the hospital made the imprint for her and had a jeweler set it in silver or white gold.
    Have you had an unexpected, untimely death of a loved one?  How did you cope?

    You don't. You live day to day and hopefully can remember as many good times that you've had with your loved one. When the pain washes over you, try to think good thoughts of the good times and not the loss.
