I hear about people finding missing persons; murderers executed, criminals sentenced, etc. Then, I hear family or friends saying it brings closure. Wouldn,t true closure mean the end of the story but also the end of all memory? Are we capable of closure or is it a catch word that sounds good? I understand "moving on" and "keeping going". But closure? Maybe I just don't understand the use of the word in this case or maybe it's just the wrong word. Make me understand.

Your 2 cents went a long way. The analogy of unresolved conflict really gave me a whole new perspective on this. Unresolved issues can haunt you the rest of your life if they stay that way and you helped me understand that. Thank You.
I'm sorry for your loss. You're a strong person, but I detect that you would like closure, whatever that is for you. I say that by your words. Rather than accepting his absence, you are living with his absence and that is painful. Hope you find answe
I'm sorry about your son. Your generosity for the sake of others is amazing, but there is a big difference between acceptance and dealing with." Dealing with" is for them ." Acceptance" is for you.
I agree, but is it possible for the grieving process, with all those emotions you speak of, to begin without closure? I thought closure happened at the beginning or end. Now, I find out it's the middle. It's a bridge from one process to the next.
Yes. I'm glad you asked. Hagred was my son's St. Bernard that left us a couple months ago. Great dog! Gratiously took abuse from 3 young boys without a whimper. All your answers tell me that I should take down that picture. You know, closure. Thx
Animals are gratious, well put. They give all their love without judging. Last year I lost both my beloved cats (Yatoula-the mom, Yatoulis-her son). I still think about them and can't wait to be able to move to my village to have lots of cats, 2 dogs
Don't take the picture down. It's in honour of the memory of a being you all loved.
OK, Gara. I thought about putting up a picture of my son, but Hagred is much better looking! My son will see this, maybe. If so, I'll probably hear about it. Hagred stays!
You're very funny. Keep up the great attitude!
