Crystal Gromer

  • At one precise moment, chronicled on a death certificate, I lost my world. I was not prepared, as no one can be. Grief is not a trip you can pack for.

    • Crystal Gromer,
    • "An Etiquette for Grief," in Reader's Digest ()
  • Americans are inclined to think we can always start over. We treat grief as a condition, something to be fixed quietly, offstage, in somebody's office for 50 minutes a week, with medication. It's as though our model for grief is a root canal. First it's terrible; then it gets better; then it's over. The requisite stages achieved, everyone can breathe a sigh of relief.
