Not I. My mother died February, two years ago. I certainly have
had memory rushes from time to time, particularly last February
and this February, but no relapse of grief. However, no two
people handle loss the same way. The fact that I have been the
usher for 8 funerals between Dec. 13 and Feb. 14 of this year
[5 of them friends of mine] might have something to do with it.
