Permanence implies continued existence.  But in the case of death, permanence implies, among other things, continued non-existence.  For me this absolute eternalness is the greatest source of grief for survivors.  Putting this simple fact into perspective can help us toward accepting death as a natural part of each of our lives.  With this piece I attempt to show the relationship between those that have died and the survivors... and that death is not so bad as it may seem.
