Yes, I phone my S.I. L each day she lost my brother early last year he went into the hospital with his arm cut. Of course he was in there for days and caught Covid. My S.I.L cannot cry so I try to speak to her. It has been awkward because if the Virus. I do understand what you explain. Sadly it is a real problem getting advice for mental health and one can see a bigger problem looming in the future. Thank you.

Re: C_C_T

Thank you. As I write in the early part of the book, the move from people dying at home vs. dying in a hospital had caused many people to not understand the term 'death.' When people died at home, children watched the process, and they learned. Today, people go to the hospital sick and come back dead. What happened? No one explains to kids the process of death. The consequence of that is we now have an entire generation, maybe two generations, who do not understand that everybody eventually dies. They don't know how to deal with their thoughts and emotions. 

I have a friend who works in a social services office who tells me they are being overrun with people seeking emotional help. Their budget has money for 'X' number of counselors, but the demand for service dramatically exceeds the ability of the available counselors. Add in a *pandemic* that seems to have no end in sight, and the world will have a serious issue of people in emotional crisis.

I really don't know B.V. If it had been circumstances unlike the present with so many 

folks in mourning. It would have been or is quite unique. I am not really qualified to

assess anyone's work. Probably because I do not know anything about publishing. 

 I still admire your fortitude.
