In the weeks and months after a loved one has died (or has been taken from you by divorce or another unfortunate reason), it's not surprising you can be going about your ordinary business when suddenly a thought of that person will break into your consciousness.
At first these flashes of memory come frequently and unbidden. Later they retreat somewhat. Nevertheless, they can be recalled deliberately when you want to be strengthened and encouraged by the way their character was expressed in life.
