We grieve at death — but we grieve mainly for ourselves, for that which has been taken from us, which for us, in this moment, is no more. We grieve for our own loss and suffering.
As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we possess a sacred knowledge of life and death. We know that we are eternal beings with a pre-existence in the presence of our Father, and a life hereafter that will transcend the dim limitations of this mortal day. Yet death — and what lies beyond — is still the great, last mystery for each of us — each one, individually, who must cross the unknown abyss and make that journey alone.
