Co-hosts Ann Diver-Stamnes and Pam Brown summarize what they've learned from their guests on losing a parent in later life. Pam notes, "(Our parents) are always with us. They're in us. They're so much a part of us." As Annie puts it, "When our parents die later in our lives, we bring our life experience to bear on the loss. We’ve grieved other losses...We learn from each of these experiences, seeing first-hand what incredibly difficult work grief is and how irrevocable is this parting."
