I find myself pretty quiet when someone that I love dies. It’s really hard for me to find the words to express my grief and sadness. But I also know that talking about it can help, even if it doesn't feel like it at first. So I try to talk to close family and friends about how I'm feeling.
But many times, my physical voice fails me. The keyboard is a welcome friend. I can sit with my words, find the way to say it perfectly. Or at least, better than the sobs coming from my chest.
My Uncle Denny Davis, of Rochester, NY, passed away on March 11th, 2023, after a brief fight with cancer. You can read my eulogy, in words, for him, right here.
Below is my eulogy in art. Trying to capture the way that grief feels, for me. It is a new pain, but I have felt it as long as I've been conscious. Grief extends to and through humanity. We all cry in our pain. We all wonder why.
