Keep Calm and Carry On
There are so many things NOT to say to someone in mourning (Amy Sedaris has a great list, I'll post it here soon.) Fearing we'll say the wrong thing, we end up saying nothing. I personally am not one for maudlin promises of reunion or syrupy sympathies involving angels, but that's the thing about grief - it's so intensely personal.
These repurposed Scrabble tiles are made by The Gilded Lily through Etsy.I like this stoic and simple statement, originally taken from a British WWII war poster. For the right person, or yourself, it might be the ideal mourning jewelry, especially this black one.
