Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Fair comment.  Dodgy  one that. I was just trying to make the point that even having had a very positive relationship with someone - who even had a very positive attitude towards confronting the issues of impending death - doesn't render you immune from feeling very bad about what happened and how it happened;  That just because you feel very guilty doesn't mean you have any reason to be.  I toyed with the idea of introducing the notion of survivor guilt, but that runs the risk of trivialising the whole thing because it is often used in a humourous context.

I'll try and find a more positive way of saying it.  I can only imagine what its like to lose someone because of crime, negligence, suicide, or if you had just had a major row with them.  A friend of a friend hung herself after a nasty family row.  I can't imagine how that family could ever recover.
