Losing Ron was a terrible day for me, also when Mother went, so suddenly, and all my old family, more loss, so you cry to ease a tight throat and a lonely heart. So you cry, yes.
You also cry for joy, when you find a lost child, and help heal a broken heart, a slice of bread when you are hungry. I thank God for the tears I've shed, it is a comfort to know and realize you are a normal person and can shed tears, with a friend, for a friend, or a relative. It is not a weakness but a gratitude of life.
I hope this admission helps some who read it. This, I think, is why we cry.
