Because All Is Not Lost

Because All Is Not Lost tries to state that there is always hope for anyone coping with grief. We have all lost a dear one at some point in our lives. Grief, depending on the relationship with the one deceased, affects us differently. But life is about celebrating those alive and not just mourning those who have moved on. Optimism and faith are the keys to overcoming the roadblocks life puts in our way.
