FROM THIS EPISODE

One reason we tell stories is to explain to ourselves things that cannot, in the end, always be explained. When someone we're close to dies, we struggle for a way to get our minds around the fact of their absence. And sometimes it takes years. In this week's show, stories of people struggling. We hear an excerpt from Genevieve Jurgenson's account of life after her two young daughters died. And other stories.
