Grief is a suicide survivor’s attempt to maintain continuity of beliefs about life & identity that a potentially preventable death has interrupted. It may include pain, fear, sorrow, or anger. Most bereavement literature describes experiences of spouses & children. In this summarized paper, a case example is presented of a 28 year old woman who lost her live-in lover of 6 years. It describes their relationship before the death & her grief process. (KM)
