My sister, Alison, died unexpectedly in August 2017. Some people would be surprised at how frequently I connect her to the mundane moments of my life. Even the most seemingly benign decisions and encounters are about Alison. What follows is a small sampling of a day in my (grieving) life.
Kellyn Shoecraft has been intimate with grief since 2004, when her dad died after two decades of autoimmune illnesses. She is now navigating life without her sister, who died unexpectedly in 2017. Inspired by these losses, Kellyn is a co-founder at Here for You, a company that delivers thoughtfully presented practical care packages (think toilet paper) for people living through life’s toughest moments.
