 n.— «According to Harold Ivan Smith, one of the country’s leading experts on grief and grieving, the last category, which he refers to as “friendgrief,” is not given the recognition it deserves in the pecking order of the bereaved. Smith points out that “friendgrief” can be as real and paralyzing as other types of grief, and in some instances, more so.» —“Grief is part of living” by Vivian Greenberg Trenton Times (New Jersey) June 3, 2006.
