I don't relate to the posts about death and grieving that I see on Facebook. Is there something wrong with me? There are lots of things wrong with me. But the way I deal with death is not one of them. We are all different. Our attitudes and feelings about death are shaped by countless factors, beliefs and experiences. Age is a big part of it. My grandmother died when I was seven. That was eighty years ago. Facebookers are half my age. Or younger.
