I think we should be talking about my father a lot more than we are, but no one in the family seems to want that.

While it can be difficult to talk about loss, it is also painful when family and friends stop speaking about the person who has died. Many of us want to keep remembering and sharing stories. If you feel this way, consider taking the lead and letting your family and friends know. This takes courage but may be helpful to others who are looking to you for guidance.
